Are you still clinging on to the hope that Gran Turismo 6 will release on the next-gen PS4? This is now looking unlikely by the day, as Polyphony Digital’s new game has again shown up on an online retail listing, only for Sony’s PS3 platform. We also have further evidence that the game is due out November 2013, so all eyes will definitely be on Sony’s E3 2013 conference in June when surely all of the secrets will come out at last.
It was only last week when we told you that Gran Turismo 6 had shown up in a retail listing from NewEgg. Now, the game has appeared yet again from Italian retailer Multiplayer, showing a €59.90 price tag and more importantly – a November 28 launch date, which is the same date that was initially attached to the Newegg listing as well.
Even Sony themselves have been quoted as saying that GT6 is on the way this year as a PS3 release, so is now the time to forget about seeing a PS4 version any time soon? Development time for Gran Turismo games is notoriously slow, due to the fact that Polyphony Digital always strive for perfection – obviously not a bad thing.
But it does mean that if Gran Turismo 6 is heading to PS3 on November 28, it could be a few years yet until we finally see Gran Turismo running on the next-gen PS4 (a new PS4 game that is, not GT6 running via Gaikai), so that’s definitely something to bear in mind. We also see some Gran Turismo 6 box art as well on the new listing, but this is definitely not official as we’ve already seen Multiplayer put up two different images.
How interested are you though in playing Gran Turismo 6 on current gen hardware, when all of the buzz at the moment is on the next-gen PS4? Has Sony and Polyphony Digital made a mistake in playing it safe with a PS3 release in your opinion, or do you actually think it’s a good move?
