Gran Turismo headed to PlayStation Vita?

Purported survey gauges interest in handheld version of racing series, new PS Plus offers to buy PS3 or Vita version of game and get the other free.


Sony's Gran Turismo racing franchise may be zipping to the PlayStation Vita. An IGN reader sent the site images from a supposed European Sony survey he participated in, and in it was mention of a Gran Turismo title for the new portable. This new game would be a portable version of the latest entry in the franchise.

If a Gran Turismo title is in fact in development for the PS Vita, it will be the second entry in the series to land on a Sony portable platform, following 2009's Gran Turismo for the PSP.

A subsequent question in the survey asks about possible future PlayStation Plus offers. The survey line reads, "Imagine that as part of PlayStation Plus, every time you bought a game on either PS3 or PS Vita, you would be entitled to get the game on the other console absolutely free. So, if you bought Resistance on PS Vita, you could download Resistance on PS3 for free. Or if you got FIFA on PS3, you could download the PS Vita version for free."

Lastly, the survey reportedly queries consumers about PS3 software purchase intent for different formats. It asks users how interested they'd be in buying games either at retail for a "standard store price" on a Blu-ray disc or digitally through the PlayStation Store for a discount of £5 ($7.77).

A Sony representative told GameSpot, "We don't comment on rumors or speculation, which this falls into."
