Sony Highlights Gran Turismo’s History on Eve of Next-Generation PlayStation Announcement

February 19th, 2013 by Jordan

All eyes will be on Sony’s “PlayStation Meeting 2013″ on Wednesday, where they are widely expected to announce their next-generation console (GTPlanet will have links for the live-stream of the event available before it kicks off at 6:00pm Eastern Time [23:00 GMT]).

Although just about everyone in the media expects the PlayStation 4 to be announced, there is less certainty about what games will be revealed at the event, if any at all.

Sony has published five videos highlighting the evolution of the company’s hardware on their YouTube channel leading up to Wednesday’s press conference, but none have focused on any specific games – until now.

Earlier today, a sixth video, which can be seen above, was apparently leaked from a Chinese website (update: the video has now been officially published by Sony). Titled “Changing the Definition of Game”, it prominently features the Gran Turismo series, highlighting how it redefined the genre of driving games and was designed to “appeal to an older group of consumers”.

Does this mean a Gran Turismo 6 announcement is imminent tomorrow? Absolutely not, and all fans of the series would be wise to temper their expectations.

It is, however, encouraging to see the series acknowledged in one of Sony’s most important media events of the last decade.

    What if…Sony don’t unveil the PS4, instead they announce the PS3 Super Super Slim :D

    I hope that the PS4 or what ever they call it, won’t be classified as a toy so they can finally use real solder to hold it together

    If rumours are true and the PS4 is unveiled and it’s x10/15 more powerful than the PS3, I hope PD use HDR to make the game even more beautiful.

    I also hope they have been watching carefully over the photo mode threads, to see the improvements that have been suggested.

    I’m so excited!!

      Actually GT5 could be a lot more “beautiful” in the sense of eye candy and appeal, just look at other late releases such as Need for Speed Most Wanted. Realistic? Kind of. Appealing to look at? For sure.

      But PD try to make the lighting as realistic as possible. So, we’ll have to see and hope if GT6 will look a lot better than GT5. To be honest I don’t expect that. GT will always keep its sterile looks, but hopefully we’ll get cleaner/better textures. I think we should expect an average track modelling level close to perfect. I mean most original tracks are like standard cars, they are more or less ports from PS2 that either need major reworking (basically from scratch), or should in no way appear on the PS4.

      Too much Blah Blah I guess. Let’s wait and see.

      @HarVee I don’t play COD either but I watch the MW3 trailer.

      It is relevant because you say Sony reckon they have the best products and so does Activision with COD.

      It’s not just Sony who believes that they are the ones changing the face of gaming – all of the game developers have given their feedback on the console and now it’s just up to marketing.

      They need to give you a reason to buy their console. But the definition of “Game” has been changed long ago. I actually like the current definition of “Game” so this does not entice me. Just give me good content and lose the ego. Thanks.

    Someone said the GT5 game engine has to be re-engineered as their ditching cell, Not true.
    In 2011, Sony patented Cell emulation by General purpose CPU, Also, if you look at the specs, 8 times Jaguar CPU (Not vanilla cores I think) and the 18CU (compute units) in the GPU, there are 4CUs strangely reserved for Graphics/Compute function. So they could act as a CELL Spu based system, my guess, to easy port and upgrade game engines from PS3.
    Just know this:
    PS2: 0.006TFlops
    PS3: 0.23TFlops
    PS4: 1.83TFlops or more.
    It may exceed 2TFlops if the rumor on the Jaguar Cores being twice as powerful as the normal one.Let us not forget the GDDR5 ram! Unified ram!!No more complicated coding. PS4 will be the easiest to make games for next gen.

    Gran Turismo is obviously the pride and joy of Sony. In a world where exclusives are slowly fading, Gran Turismo remains a strong reason to buy a Sony console over a Microsoft console.

    GT5 was definitely not the strongest GT title, so I see it as an experimental dummy for GT6. GT’s car list could use some work. I remember when GT used to be the racing game with all the premier manufacturers (kind of). But with standard RUFs from AT LEAST a decade ago, no Koenigsegg models, etc..it reminds us that GT isn’t perfect and that it has some gaping holes.

    I hope we see GT6 today. That would be awesome.

    • Feb. 20, 12:20am

      It also makes Nintendo fans (like me) buy PS.

  9. Feb. 19, 11:09pm
    2012GT325

    To me, the fact that they talk about the GT series just highlights the fact that this is such a historic game (it came out before the other Sony blockbuster exclusives: God of War, Uncharted, etc), and that it also made them the most money and pushed the system to its limits.

    Having said that, I do hope that it also means (even if it wasn’t implied) that a new GT game will be announced soon, and that Sony will give PD even more money and artistic freedom so that they can produce/deliver not just the best racing game, but the best PlayStation game, EVER!

    To me personally, the Gran Turismo series IS the greatest game series. I love cars and photography, both of which are beautifully presented in the series. The game has it’s imperfections but all-in-all, it’s an amazing achievement. Some other racing games may do a few things better, but let’s NEVER FORGET that they wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for Gran Turismo. Gran Turismo changed the sim-racing game genre and it continues to amaze and dazzle me with it’s attention to detail and beauty.

    Well, we shall see. With the new regulations for SUPER GT being implemented 2014 and SUPER GT playing a good part in GT I wonder if we’ll have to wait until next year for GT6. I know PD get an early look at cars, but if the liveries aren’t shown until this time next year, I’m doubting if it will be a launch title.

    • Feb. 19, 11:05pm
      Dekropttiv

      I always wished PD would put a heavier emphasis on SUPER GT races. I’d like to see a legit SUPER GT race series in career mode following the legitimate order and tracks of the real series. I mean how hard could it be? If they can (kind of) get NASCAR, a completely foreign Motorsport to Japan, why can’t they get a Motorsport from their homeland implemented accurately into the game?

    • Feb. 20, 12:10am
      Quakebass

      So you don’t think PD could change the regulations in the game when they change in real life…? Or include both regulations…?

      We’re in 2013, man, this isn’t rocket science.

    • Feb. 20, 12:26am
      05XR8

      Of course they can, man. But the current SUPER GT line up consists of cars from ’08 and GT5 debuted 2010. Our newest GT500 car is a 2011 and we got that in 2012 and the HSV already has its days numbered. So, if we get GT6 this Christmas that’s just as well. If we get it between June-December 2014 there may be no need to DLC or change anything( we’ll know in a few hours).

      Laguna Seca (Yellow Mustang) followed by Rome (drifting Elise RM) and Daytona, those are the tracks 1:03 – 1:05, IMO.

    Wish the PS4 has something new, instead of just bigger hardware. The WII U didn’t just keep it the same as the Wii and make it HD but I’m sure sony will introduce something new to the PS4 that’s not just bigger hardware (bigger hardware is great but it needs something else).

I don’t want to have standart cars from GT5 in GT6. I WANT better cars on GT6. PD has the responsability to improve GT6. And not just give a simple word by, “Look, player will ave this and that”.

      I REALLY hope there isn’t any standard content (tracks as well – ALL should be high-res with some sort of weather variability, AT LEAST). This is the next generation. There shouldn’t be content that looks like its from TWO generations ago.

      This may mean less cars (unless PD goes through and upgrades all of the duplicates as well… Which would be an impressive feat), but hopefully they go quality over quantity in the car list, similar to Forza. We already know of SEMA cars, and there was that leak with some sort of Hyundai (or Kia, I don’t remember…). I’m hoping everything in GT6 will be premium, and most race-moddable. As I said, if there’s standard content, that’s just unacceptable at this point.

    • Feb. 19, 10:38pm
      Pit Crew

      But…its a Sony Press conference. Expecting an overabundance of GT6 news is gonna leave some even more disheartened, should they not hear or see what they may have wrongly built this meeting to be about.

      Just because we are big GT fans doesnt equate to Sony just focusing on what we want to be informed about.

    • Feb. 19, 10:39pm

      2 Hyundai cars that were leaked actually, and they’re my favorites. Both the Genesis Coupe and Veloster Turbo, 2013 models too. :)

      I wasn’t asking or hoping for this news, I was merely stating what I expect of PD. I doubt we’ll get that much info on any games that will be previewed.

      And yes, there WILL be games previewed. It simply is impossible to showcase hardware without software that runs on it. Apple shows several of its applications with they’re hardware, and Sony will show software that comes with the PS4 (basically in-console apps), and then external software (games). There likely won’t be much info on any of the games, though.

      Now, the real question is WHICH games will be previewed.

  15. Feb. 19, 8:27pm

    I’m touched by this. It always “seemed” Sony never really acknowledge what the GT franchise have done for them. For them to prominently feature the GT franchise in this tribute video is a very well deserving moment for Kaz and PD.

    People are being very optimistic about GT6/PS4. I expect nothing more than a presentation of the console, some tech demos, and maybe a Ridge Racer/Wipeout demo. Maybe they give a release date, maybe not.
    The video features GT because it’s featured in every Playstation console so it’s easier to show the evolution of PS graphics. It’s not a hidden message from Sony (I guess).
    It would be wise to temper expectations, as Jordan said. If GT6 is for PS4 they don’t necessarely need to show it with the new console. The event is about the console not the games. If we see the new PS4 at the conference I think they would keep the games for other events such as E3 or TGS.

    • Feb. 19, 8:44pm
      MeanElf

      True, but consoles are built (primarily) for games and so what better way to attact investors than to show the capabilities and how the fans react to that over the coming weeks.

    • Feb. 19, 9:41pm
      JeremiahTB

      Without games, the Sony PlayStation will just be a Sony Station. Just as the Elf said, the thing to do is to show us the games during the presentation.

    • Feb. 19, 10:30pm
      Quakebass

      I’m expecting more than Ridge Racer and Wipe Out. Evolution posted on twitter “10 days!”, so there’ll likely be something with motorstorm. There’s been hints from the Killzone devs. and MM (LBP devs.) as well, so there could be a bit more to show. There likely won’t be any sort of tech demos or gameplay, but CERTAINLY previews of some kind. You need to back up your hardware with some software, don’t you…?

      But again, there might not be anything from GT. But considering GT is one of the biggest franchises on Playstation, and it’s looking like Motorstorm will make an appearance, I’d be willing to put money down on seeing some sort of GT6 related content.

    • Feb. 19, 11:47pm

      Is that Wipeout thing still valid – have they kept something secret from us? Just curious as that’s the third time I’ve seen Wipeout as a launch title being mentioned…all after Studio Liverpool was shut down.

      In regards to the last two lines im guessing some sort of demo coming to the ps3 (prologue perhaps?) and the full fledged version will release on the ps4.

      I heard a suggestion from a guy on a vg247 video who suggested that it would be nice if sony’s newly acquired gaikai service could stream ps4 demos to our ps3’s. That would be fantastic but he spoke of it like it was way out of left field so i guess we’ll have to wait and see if he was really just daring to dream or if he let slip something he shouldnt have, it ties in curiously well with the poem though (thanks amar!)

    I don’t understand why it’s not likely Jordan. We’ve certainly seen this before. Maybe not an announcement of GT6 per se, but a Gran Turismo Vision type thing, a vague trailer of some sort to hint at the type of game we might be playing in the future. I’d say the forecast for something like that happening is very very strong.

      No offense Guardian, but why the heck would they show us videos of PS1, PS2, PS3, PSP and Vita AND the last one about Gran Turismo franchise if they weren’t to announce PS4 and reveal the next installment of the series? Do you think Sony is THIS stupid to let their fans down like that? This isn’t only some hardcore fans wet dreams, this is actual solid hints right there this time which only and idiot wouldn’t get.

      If you’re referencing the hopes for GT5 content from maintenance announcements, then really, I don’t know what to say.

      Considering that Sony is including GT in its PS history videos, I’m pretty sure there will at least be an ACKNOWLEDGEMENT of GT6 at the conference – that’s the least I could I aging seeing. There’s too much evidence. There wasn’t any regarding GT5 content since, well, really Motegi or the leaked BRZ.

    This is sweet news, but IMO, GT6 wiil be released on PS3. This go around, I can’t see PD waiting till the PS4 is released. Especially if the release date is beyond this year. We are over 2 years into GT5, so prolonging the releseof GT6 would not be in PD’s best interest. Hopfully they can keep up the hype and release GT6 this year. My 2 cents.

      At this stage that’s tantamount to the flat-earth theory…

      Along with many others, I’d like GT6 to be on PS3 but I don’t think Sony will let that opportunity go – it’ll be on PS4.

      The PS4 will likely be out towards the end of this year, since we’re likely getting an announcement tomorrow.

      And Kaz has said he wants to use the latest hardware available, so even if the PS4 doesn’t come out till next year, I’m still expecting a GT6 on PS4.

      All jokes aside, I can’t recall a time when Kaz wanted to rush something out the door…

    Sony sure is giving a lot of hype to the GT series as of late. Putting money into recent marketing of the GT series would really make sense if there was some big news right around the corner…speaking from a business aspect, not just a fan’s point of view.

    Since when did the Nascars in GT5 have wings like that? (1:15) Didn’t Nascar use those back in like 09?

    • Feb. 19, 4:58pm
      Tate566

      It was a shortlived change to Nascar. Hence why it never showed up in the final game. When Nascar took off those specific wings so did Kaz.

    I’ll be honest with the slow down of updates since motegi I’m half expecting a GT6 announcement with the playstation seen as though it’s one of the core games for playstation?

    I could see that PD would have wanted to get more out for Gran Turismo 5 but I reckon soon after the last update they would have had a meeting and decided on the announcement and then joined up a few games to go with it? I could also see GT Academy if there’s another one to be also involved with this or focused on the end of the PS3 life!

    I know that’s all speculation but we’ll soon see what happens :D!

      couldnt care less whether or not gt6 is a launch title… I would rather have a masterpiece that took pd years to complete than a game rushed out to keep the impatient baying dogs quiet…

    • Feb. 19, 4:29pm
      Quakebass

      Considering that PD doesn’t have to rebuild a physics engine, and has been working on the game since before GT5 was even released (around the time the first PS4 dev kits were being sent out to developers), a launch title could very well be possible this time around.

      But don’t take my word for it. I honestly don’t know what will happen tomorrow, but Evolution studios (motor storm devs.) and the developers of KillZone have pointed to announcements coming on Wednesday.

    • Feb. 19, 5:10pm
      StonnyMc

      Don’t care about GT6, nor for a few months anyway, and yes like someone else said I’d rather wait for the game to be finished before it is release, unlike EA and other money s*****s, Killzone would be awesome too but please make it better than the last one or I will not spend money on it.

      Guess we’ll have to wait for tomorrow to know more but defo looks like PS4 (or whatever it may be called) but even that is not certain :D

    • Feb. 19, 8:51pm

      No one has actually said that GT6 will be a launch title – it’s been infered, hoped for and just about everything else…but no official statement.
