At 11am EST Sony will make a horrible mistake. Gran Turismo 6 will be announced for the PS3. 

Does anyone want this? You know what this means, no GT7 (a real next gen GT) till like 2020. 

Maybe, just maybe its cross gen. 

This site will cover everything http://www.gtplanet.net/. As well as all major game sites.

The even numbered Gran Turismo's are typically more solid games, though they also sell less units.

Thats disgusting. On-topic, I agree. PS4 or bust, I don't want shitty ports, the PS3 is finished Sony, FINISHED. Release the bloody game on PS4 in 2014 like a smart company would.

Why are you guys upset that Sony is still supporting their current system? You all act like you gonna drop down cash on launch and nab a PS4. I highly doubt that. I didn't get a PS3 nearly two years after launch and I expect to do the same wit the PS4, so I for one am glad that Sony is still churning out high quality exclusives for the PS3.

Embargo has been broken. Sony's officially announced it for the PS3 for November.

Sony Computer Entertainment has announced Gran Turismo 6, the latest version of PlayStation's best-selling franchise, will be released in the holiday season, 2013. The news was revealed today by Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi at an event held to celebrate 15 years of the top-selling series.

"GT6 for PlayStation 3 will bring new levels of authenticity to 'the Real Driving Simulator' as well as introducing stunning new tracks and cars and a revised user interface," a press statement read.

"A new compact game engine will improve operation and increase the flexibility to expand it with downloadable content."

The game is also set for connectivity with devices such as smartphones and tablets for social and community functions.

All of the cars and tracks from Gran Turismo 5 will be retained in GT6. But notable additions to the line-up of historic cars, road cars and the latest race cars, brings the total car list to 1200 at launch, with new cars set to be continually added online.

Several thousand aerodynamic parts and custom wheels will be available for almost all cars, and players can personalise their own custom cars in-game as well.

The UK's Silverstone Circuit will be one of seven new locations in Gran Turismo 6, taking the total to 33, with 71 different layouts available, 19 of them being new.

New tracks are also set to be made available online, while the course maker has also seen improvements.

The press statement confirmed that the GT Academy series, which sees Nissan and Sony team up to find real racing drivers, will be returning.

Other notable partnerships in the development of GT6 have been with tyre manufacturer Yokohama Rubber and suspension company KW Automotive.

"It is amazing to think that it is 15 years since we first released Gran Turismo," explained Kazunori Yamauchi, during the announcement at Silverstone Circuit.

"Things have changed a lot since then and now Gran Turismo 6 is a further evolution of my dream. We're pleased to deliver GT6 to PlayStation 3 as we have a very loyal community on that platform.

Umm yes, we will.

By the time this f*cking game comes out, Sony's CURRENT console would be the PS4. Them not supporting it with their biggest franchises is a f*cking travesty.

It's a matter of bigger user base (read: more sales) versus recognizable franchises that push a new system's sales.

If PS4 had BC this wouldn't be such an issue, imo.

Why are people upset that GT6 won't be on PS4? Don't you realise that Sony's biggest install base is on PS3? They sure as hell aren't gonna release it on a system with 1,000 users. You guys could have used some logic here.

Pretty excited about GT6! It's my favourite racing franchise, so hopefully Polyphony Digital won't mess this one up like they did with GT5. No standard cars please! Oh, and fresh A-Spec events and make sure there's plenty of them.

I find it hard to believe that anyone could be surprised that Polyphony Digital can't make a game for the PS4 in 3 years when it took them 5 years to make a game for the PS3. 

I think they spent 3 years just making the engine to run on the PS3 and the next 2 creating the remaining content for the game.  Considering they've now had 2 1/2 years, or maybe 3 by the time it will launch (or maybe 4 or 5 lol), just to work on additional content for GT6, it's possible this might be really good.  But after the world-record overhyping job they did with GT5, I'll believe it when I see it and not a moment earlier.

Both posts are facts. The Digital only $10 trash comment was incredibly stupid and insulting to indie developers. And after Forza 4 destroying GT5 in the quality department (800 PS2 cars anyone?) it's clear Gran Turismo is not in top form.

In all honesty, even though I haven't had an Xbox 360 in about 2 or 3 years and only had a PS3 (with Gran Turismo 5), I kinda wish I played Forza. Never got a chance :( Gran Turismo 5 in my personal opinion was overhyped. All dem PS2 cars...

No they can support it all they want, but not with Sony's biggest franchise after a new console is launched which means PS4 wont get GT support till the end of its run. Its stupid. Everyone that wants GT already has GT5, this game will be the same damn thing. Will it sell, yes. Will it help sell PS4s, nope. So its a dumb idea. Maybe if some B team was making GT6 and they were really working on GT7 already then ok. But PD doesn't work like that. This means PS4 is NOT GETTING GT anytime soon. You need your best franchise to sell consoles. They are repeating the mistakes of the PS3.

Erm, how do you know GT6 will be the same as GT5? Also how do you know GT7 will be released towards the end of the life of the PS4? It won't help sell the PS4 because they have other games for it and maybe Sony want to start the console off with some new exclusives.

Which only further showcases how grossly inefficient and grossly overrated PD is. The Forza team, in the same timeframe you talk about, will have put out at least three to four titles, and all of them will be superior to GT7. How do I know? The exact same damn thing happened this gen with GT5.

So basically you're saying they should shaft the current user base that has supported them since 2006 in favor of the PS4? I'm all down for more PS4 games from Sony but completely alienating an entire consumer base is bad business and a dick move.

Sony supported the PS2 quite a bit after the PS3 launched and I expect them to do the same with the launch of the PS4.

List of great PS2 game released after November 6, 2006 (PS3 Launch):
Yakuza 2 (2008)
Guilty Gear XX Accent Core (2007)
Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 (2008)
God of War 2 (2007)
GrimGrimoire 2007)

So you think PD which took like 5 years to make a game that has mostly PS2 model cars is going to magically get their act together and make a proper next gen GT game in like 2 years????

All the evidence points against it.

How do I know it will be like GT5, just look at the press release. All the cars from GT5 and all the tracks are included, just with new stuff added on. You know they didnt create a whole new engine to run the game. The DNA of GT6 is completely GT5.

PD is not the only Sony dev. They will have plenty of PS3 support going forward but they can only have ONE GT at a time and having it wasted on a system that is done is stupid.

And I would hope Sony fans wouldnt want the cash grab sequel. What exactly is GT6 going to give you other than more GT5ish GT?  Why do you want more GT from this generation?

I get the business reasons behind this decision. That being said, Sony's Japanese studios are going to be even further behind next-gen than they were this gen. It is at a point where I don't really care about anything coming from their studios in Japan. I can't wait for The Last Guardian to come out on PS3 in 2016.

Was God of War 2 a cash grab sequel?

You have to realize a few things before you get your jimmies all rustled up. PD obviously has some development issues with GT5, hence the delays, and are now more familiar with the PS3 hardware. They can churn out a much more complete and polished experience. Having them start R&D with the PS4 all over again wouldn't exactly be the smartest thing to do, they'd have to start from scratch. GT5 is the PS3's best selling game at 10 million units, with an ever increasing PS3 user base, you honestly thinl Sony and PD wouldn't want to tap that market again?

Plus, PD has always had 2 full GT games for each previous generation:
GT, GT2 (PS1)
GT3, GT4 (PS2)

No GoW is an action adventure game with completely new locations, gameplay additions, new enemies, new story. GT6 literally has GT5 in it, plus a some more cars and tracks. Its not a full game started from scratch.

Well now that we have info it is clear it is a PS4 ready game and it has been upgraded to a whole new engine, so its a different story.
