Just two days ago I posted a story on Polyphony Digital’s involvement in the design of the Playstation 4, speculating that the next Gran Turismo title will be heading to the all-new platform.
It seems though as Sony has different plans according to an interview with Sony Computer Entertainment’s SVP Michael Denny who said the following:
Look at the games coming out on the PlayStation 3 like The Last of Us, Beyond: Two Souls, GT6, and then on the third-party side of things another fantastic Assassin’s Creed, GTA. It’s important for our content to have that kind of longevity because, as I was saying [about the PS Vita], the games that come through are going to get better and better over time.
Since it’s unlikely that a high-profile executive gets this kind of information wrong, it looks like the Playstation 3 will host the next installment of the Gran Turismo series. By doing so, PD & Sony would follow an establish pattern as both past Playstation generations have each had two GTs, the first laying the tech groundwork and the second expanding on content.
Releasing Gran Turismo 6 on the Playstation 3 would help majorly increase the life-span of the proven platform, especially as the upcoming Playstation 4 will most likely not provide any backwards compatibility.
