Kazunori Yamauchi on Gran Turismo 6 and beyond
by Dale North

At E3 this afternoon I had the pleasure of chatting with Polyphony Digital president Kazunori Yamauchi about his upcoming PS3 game, Gran Turismo 6. He also teased what might be coming up next, but made it clear that we're getting ahead of ourselves when talking about PS4 Gran Turismo titles.

Gran Turismo 6: A peek under the hood photo
Gran Turismo 6: A peek under the hood
by Dale North

Just a few weeks ago, we were picking over Gran Turismo 6 rumors, and now here we are with our very first preview. I was surprised to walk into a hands-on opportunity just one day after the title was officially announced. Surprised and pleased.

It may not have been the PlayStation 4 launch game I was hoping for, but it's never really a bad time for more Gran Turismo.

Polyphony comments on possible Gran Turismo 6 PS4 version

After Gran Turismo 6 was officially unveiled as a PlayStation 3 game due out later this year, many of us wondered if there wasn't something Polyphony Digital was leaving out -- something, anything about a possible PlayStation...

Gran Turismo 6 hits PlayStation 3 this holiday season
by Jordan Devore

At an anniversary event today, the next installment in the beloved racing sim series Gran Turismo was announced for release this holiday season. Don't you love it when teasers quickly pan out? While Dale was hoping for a PlayStation 4 version, it seems Gran Turismo 6 is sticking with Sony's current console.

Among the early details, two stand out: "a compact game engine" will better allow for DLC, and there's going to be connectivity with mobile devices for "increased social and community functions." The vehicles and tracks of Gran Turismo 5 -- all of them -- will be included in the new game, including enough new stuff to bump the launch-day car list up to 1,200. As for locations, there are 33 in total, with seven of them new to GT6.

"Things have changed a lot since then and now Gran Turismo 6 is a further evolution of my dream," said Polphony Digital CEO Kazunori Yamauchi. "We're pleased to deliver GT6 to PlayStation 3 as we have a very loyal community on that platform. However, we have refactored the game to make it very flexible and expandable, with a view to making many future developments. I am very pleased with everything about the new game and the new additions, but the launch will be only the beginning for GT6. The game will continue to develop throughout its life. I already have many ideas for things I want to achieve in the next 15 years of Gran Turismo!"

'Exciting Gran Turismo announcements' coming May 15 photo
'Exciting Gran Turismo announcements' coming May 15
by Dale North

An event going down later this month in the UK could bring us some exciting Gran Turismo news. Polyphony Digital will be hosting an event at Silverstone Circuit, Towcester, Northamptonshire to celebrate Gran Turismo's 15th anniversary. Found at NeoGAF, the invite, which I did not get, reads: 

Join us to celebrate 15 years of Gran Turismo, and discover exciting announcements about its future.

As a huge Gran Turismo fan, I want to punch someone in the face to channel some of the excitement out of my body. We've had a feeling that this was coming, but now it's really happening. Could this be Gran Turismo 6?

You know what would really make this exciting? A PS4 version.
