Gran Turismo®6 is Coming!
Kazunori Yamauchi announces new game at Gran Turismo 15th anniversary event; 70 million franchise figure was also revealed
SILVERSTONE, England, May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. today announced Gran Turismo®6 (GT6™), the latest version of PlayStation®'s best-selling franchise, will be released in Holiday, 2013. The news was revealed today by legendary Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi at an event held to celebrate 15 years of the 70-million-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 new compact game engine will improve operation and increase the flexibility to expand it with downloadable content. Meanwhile, the game is also set for expanded connectivity with other devices such as smart phones and tablets and increased social and community functions.
All of the cars and tracks from Gran Turismo®5, which has sold over 10 million copies since launching in 2010, will be retained in GT6. But notable new additions to the already impressive line-up of historic cars, road cars and the latest race cars, brings the total car list to 1,200 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 personalize their own custom cars in game to the greatest ever level possible.
The UK's famous Silverstone Circuit will be just one of seven new locations in Gran Turismo 6, taking the total to 33, with 71 different layouts available, 19 of them brand new. There will also be regular additions of new tracks set to be made available online. The improved course maker function will provide gorgeous scenery spanning several tens of square kilometers including the magnificent backdrop of Andalucia.
The theme of Gran Turismo's innovative collaborations with partner companies will increase with the inception of GT6. A number of exciting new projects that blur the line between the virtual and real will be announced in the run up to the game's launch. Not least of these is GT Academy, a collaboration with Nissan to unearth real racing driver talent that first ran in 2008. It was announced during the event that the competition returns for its biggest ever year in 2013, with the entry mechanic set to take place on an exclusive GT6 demo in July.
Other notable partnerships in the development of GT6 have been with tire manufacturer Yokohama Rubber and suspension company KW Automotive. Both companies are active in the commercial car industry and in racing, and they have acted as technical development partners for the game's new physics engine, for its tire and suspension kinematic modeling, creating an even more realistic experience for GT fans.
"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. 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!"
The celebration of 15 years of Gran Turismo event at Silverstone included a demo of GT6 featuring the famous circuit. Guests were able to play the game in the familiar circular Gran Turismo race pods before having a chance to take to the real track in cars provided by Audi, Ford, Jaguar, KTM, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan and Toyota.

Sony explains why Gran Turismo 6 is launching on PS3, not PS4
The biggest eyebrow-raiser with last week's Gran Turismo 6 reveal was that it's launching on the PS3, and not the PS4. Doesn't Sony want to drive PS4 launch sales with one of its biggest franchises?
In an interview on the PlayStation Blog, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe CEO Jim Ryan explained why the latest Gran Turismo isn't debuting on the soon-to-be latest PlayStation, arguing that GT6 can still deliver a significant difference from GT5, despite being on the same platform.
"You had GT1 and GT2 on PS one," Ryan said, "GT3 and GT4 on PS2, then there's GT5 on PS3 and a space next to it. The difference between Gran Turismo and GT2 is unbelievable, but they're both on the same platform. The difference between GT3 and GT4 is huge. We're absolutely confident when GT6 comes, you'll see a big step change up from GT5 too. There's still a lot of potential on PS3 that a developer like Polyphony can really exploit."
The other, obvious factor is the install base. Gran Turismo has traditionally been a big seller, with three entries shifting over 10 million units. To do that, Ryan indicates, you need to have the install base.
"And the other factor is that on PS3 we have an install base of 70 million units," Ryan added. "On PS4 on launch day we'll have an install base of zero units. There'll be plenty of games to help drive PS4 – not least Driveclub in the racing genre from Evolution Studios, a studio with a fantastic pedigree."
A PS4 version of GT6 looks more than likely at some point down the line, and it's something that hasn't been shied away from. Speaking to IGN, series creator Kazunori Yamauchi said, "We actually do have a PlayStation 4 version in mind, but for this holiday season, we thought it would be best for users to release on PS3 for now."

Gran Turismo 6 demo out next week!
A playable Gran Turismo 6 demo is coming to PSN on July 2, SCE America revealed this week. When Polyphony Digital's shiny new racer was unveiled finally last month, Sony promised a demo was due in July. Sure enough, the demo is coming and right at the start of next month too, which should go some way to allaying fears the racer's 'holiday 2013' release window is too soon to be true.
The demo is also the qualifying method for GT Academy 2013, the competition intended to unearth real driving talent by providing winners with a spot on Nissan's racing team. Qualifications end on July 28, but the demo remains freely available to all afterwards.
The demo itself features beginner stages themed around a GT Academy boot camp, with racers who make the grade going on to the final qualifier at the UK's Silverstone track. In terms of cars, SCEA said the demo features the Nissan Leaf, 370Z, and GT-R at the least.
GRAN TURISMO 6 has an official release date!
this was on the official website for GRAN TURISMO:
Console : PlayStation®3
Release Date : 6 December 2013
Number of players : TBD
Genre : TBD [racing]
Distributor/Producer : Sony Computer Entertainment/Polyphony Digital Inc

Patch 1.02: Red Bull X Challenge, Login Credit Bonus, More.
Gran Turismo 6 will be updated today with two new Red Bull cars and the Red Bull X
Challenge. The challenge is part of a collaboration with Infiniti Red Bull Racing that includes
2013 Formula 1 World Champion Sebastian Vettel mentoring players in the art of driving an
authentic formula car.
Owners of GT6 will have the opportunity to select the first two of four new Red Bull cars.
The Red Bull Racing Kart and Red Bull X2014 Junior will arrive in dealerships in-game via the
update, while the Red Bull X2014 Standard and Fan cars can be expected to join them at a
later stage. All of the new Red Bull X2014 cars have been designed for GT6 in conjunction
with Infiniti Red Bull Racing’s legendary Chief Technical Officer Adrian Newey.
The collaboration between Polyphony Digital and Red Bull is another project which
celebrates the franchise’s 15th anniversary, and the free update has been provided as a
special end-of-year gift for Gran Turismo fans.
“We are very grateful to Adrian Newey, Sebastian Vettel, and Infiniti Red Bull Racing for
providing this special gift for Gran Turismo fans. To be taught how to drive downforce cars
by the best racing driver in the world is very special, and the new Red Bull X2014 cars are
another exciting addition to Gran Turismo 6. This is the latest update for the game, and
there are more to come,” President of Polyphony Digital Kazunori Yamauchi said.
Red Bull Racing’s Sebastian Vettel added, “I’ve been playing Gran Turismo since I was 12,
so to appear in the game myself as a mentor is great. I hope everyone enjoys the
