The question has been on everybody's lips since the rumours of a full Gran Turismo sequel on PS3 first emerged: why not PS4? Yesterday, it was confirmed that Gran Turismo 6 will launch on PS3 before Christmas this year, directly alongside - not to say competing with - the launch of Sony's new home console.
Speaking after the game's announcement at Silverstone yesterday, Polyphony Digital CEO and Gran Turismo mastermind Kazunori Yamauchi left the door firmly open to a PS4 version of GT6 - eventually.
"We actually do have a PlayStation 4 version in mind," Yamauchi told a table of journalists as road and race cars thundered around the storied Northamptonshire race track outside. "So for this holiday season, we thought that it would be best for users to release the PlayStation 3 version. I thought the best scenario would be to have the game come out, to have new content and new DLCs every month, and updates coming in for the game; and once players have thoroughly played out the system and played out the game, if the PlayStation 4 version just came out naturally in the progress, I think that's the best scenario."
