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. 
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.
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...

I shrugged off the first rumors of Gran Turismo 6 earlier this year. I am still mostly in that mindset, though I feel obligated to point out some of the recent rumblings now.  Popular webstore Newegg.com had a listing fo...
Gran Turismo 6 was nonchalantly announced as a current-gen PlayStation 3 game by Michael Denny, SCEE's senior vice president, in an interview with Silicon Republic. "Look at the games coming out on the PlayStation 3, like The...
The latest and perhaps final video in Sony's Evolution of PlayStation series is specifically about games rather than the hardware they were designed to run on. Hitting on the divide between games being viewed as toys and gam...
I'm a Japanese car guy, but there's no denying that the newly revealed 2014 Corvette is a badass lookin' vehicle. It was just revealed at the Detroit Auto Show last night, and today we've received news that it will ...
If you still own Gran Turismo 5, you can boot it up and grab a free car: the Corvette C7 Test Prototype. Chevrolet and Polyphony Digital worked together to get this new, real-life car out in the game, and oddly enough, there...
Sony has detailed Gran Turismo 5 XL, a new retail package for GT 5 due out on January 17, 2012. Looking over what's included for latecomers, you almost want to high five your frugal self. (Don't, though.) All of the free game...

You can never quench the need for good racing car porn. While many "don't get it," the ones that do are always looking for a quick fix, and Gran Turismo 5 really delivered. Gran Turismo 5 was worth the wait. It was sooo naugh...
If you're somehow bored of real racing with real controls, you can go into Gran Turismo 5's B-Spec mode and tell another driver what to do. Exciting, right? While B-Spec mode may not be the best choice when you're actually in...
[Update: The PlayStation Blog has detailed the game updates, and now we see the reason for the size of the patch -- it adds a ton to the game. Check out the details here.] There's nothing like popping on your game system, thr...
Why...why didn't you do that in the first place, Polyphony Digital? Did you run out of time? No, that can't be it. Before I start ranting, an upgrade of Gran Turismo 5's standard cars to premium models is not yet confirmed, b...

Gran Turismo 5 has the physics down when it comes to driving, where it really matters. Turns, braking and even collisions react realistically, and that's what keeps me coming back to this game every day. It's when thi...
Gran Turismo 5 took eight billion years to make, and it's not finished yet. A new patch is coming that will add "mechanical damage options" to the game. Quite what that means is yet to be elaborated upon, but it will most lik...

After ten thousand years of development, Gran Turismo 5 is finally out this week, but it has earned itself a major detractor already. Electronic Arts, in promoting Need for Speed, has diminished GT5's important, calling it a ...
This gave me a hearty chuckle. It's a go-kart race in Gran Turismo 5 in which the player drives in reverse for the entire race and manages to pull out a win.  Ridiculous, right? Sure seems that way and it's entirel...
