Gran Turismo 6 Revealed: Trailer, Screenshots, & First Details

May 15th, 2013 by Jordan Greer

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 Andalucía.

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.

Further news about Gran Turismo 6 will be revealed at the forthcoming E3 and Gamescom events.

    Déjà-vu anyone else ??

  2. May. 15, 3:50pm

    no standard cars plz!!!!

  3. May. 15, 3:50pm

    So looks like GT6 may be supported for quiet some time – great news for folk not upgrading to the PS4 right away :)

    • May. 15, 4:23pm

      Sad news for Sony, no one here in their right minds is going to bother buying a PS4 until 2016 when GT7 comes out.

  4. May. 15, 3:48pm

    Sport quattro S1 !! Has been my #1 wish for a long time – a true icon of motorsports. Sometimes they DO listen. :) Lets hope the “custom car” means actual livery editor.

    • May. 15, 3:53pm

      when the features say you can create your OWN, PERSONALIZED, CUSTOM car, we know he’s not screwing around.

  5. May. 15, 3:46pm

    Great stuff, and thanks for the live coverage throughout the event Jordan!

    Already lots of information and we’ll get even more at E3. Really happy roght now :-)

  6. May. 15, 3:46pm

    I hope we will be able to customize the paint on the cars with our own personal decals and other things. That would be really cool and allow people to truly let their cars be individual.

  7. May. 15, 3:44pm

    Holiday means Summer in North Hemisphere? so, Winter in South?

    • May. 15, 3:49pm

      Sadly not, due to religious reasons in America, Holiday season is actually Christmas not summer :(

    • May. 15, 4:09pm

      so, let’s wait to Christmas… Dear Santa…

    To all the people still moaning and bitching just carry the F*** on because PD don’t give a crap about you and neither do I.

    • May. 15, 3:43pm
      Magic Ayrton

      And you are just moaning too..

    • May. 15, 3:45pm

      Ha ha ha ha aha

    • May. 15, 3:48pm

      If you don’t give a crap about them, than why did you create this post?

    • May. 15, 3:49pm

      Freak :P

  9. May. 15, 3:41pm

    “New cars set to be continually added online.” We’ve all heard things like this before only to be disappointed. I hope it’s true this time.

    • May. 15, 3:46pm

      When? The only time I can remember is when Kaz said that he’d “like to release content very 2 months or so”… Hardly steadfast. This is a steadfast statement. I’d expect this will happen.

    • May. 15, 3:47pm

      You bet your …. It won’t ;)

  10. May. 15, 3:41pm

    Hmm, 1200 Cars? I guess this means that standards are back?

    • May. 15, 3:43pm

      back but as standards or premiums, nobody knows and wont until they say otherwise.

    • May. 15, 3:46pm

      I’m thinking the same thing. I think that’s more Sony than PD.

    • May. 15, 4:02pm

      Let’s see…
      GT5 has around 800 standards and 200 premiums for about 1000 cars, so, that’s round a 2/8 premium car ratio.
      GT6 has around 1200 cars? At 3/8 we get 450 premiums ;)

    • May. 15, 4:27pm

      do we have to wait until GT 7 to have no standard cars? :'(

  11. May. 15, 3:40pm

    50 junk new jap family cars , a handfull of gtrs and a few decent cars then the rest will be dlc! Was really excited for ps4 launch and then they do this ! idiots well looks like it will be project cars on the pc now then !

    • May. 15, 3:41pm

      Off you go to project cars then, you won’t be missed

    • May. 15, 3:47pm

      Have fun playing a game that HAS NO customization whatsoever…

    • May. 15, 3:53pm

      No customization, this game has best customization, I’m talking about suspension and transmission!

  12. May. 15, 3:39pm

    Can we wait untill we find out more about the game before deeming it to hell on the DAY 1 reveal?! People keep blaming kaz and calling him lazy but think about it do you really believe that? do you really believe he doesnt care? I what if he never created gran turismo and stuck with motor toon racers? I personally believe these guys are some of the most passionate hard working guys in the industry. Yet every mistake they make we cry and complain over and over again while they slave away at making a game for us! Yes im sure they are paid well but its different with PD! lets be happy that its not EA(i still like some EA games) or worst behind this game! Be happy!!!!!

    • May. 15, 3:42pm

      Dude ..its unbelievable. All you can do is read and shake your head. But what’s important are that many of us are happy …and do not, in ANY way, believe him or his employees to be lazy.

    • May. 15, 3:46pm

      +1 to both. They’re complaining on purpose now, because well, they’re BABIES who can’t be happy and are spoiled…

    • May. 15, 3:51pm

      Agree with you all, +1

    • May. 15, 4:27pm

      I’m excited as hell. It’s a new GT title! This adds a meaning to my life for at least another 5 or 6 years :D

      There is still much to know about the game. Let’s wait until the E3.

    • May. 15, 4:49pm

      glad to know some of us are on the same page hahaha cant wait to get online with you guys on launch!

  13. May. 15, 3:38pm

    I’m a very happy man today.
    Just for the new Physics Engine ,suspension , new tyre model, new aerodynamics model……
    Let’s see the details they will reveal during the next months.
    I want a better pilot view, with more rear zoom like Iracing and with the car shaking not the eye, sounds…. ???!!!
    I’ll just wait and see . Thanks PD for this day. I’m feeling like a kid …. a half century very happy kid.

    • May. 15, 3:43pm

      I am in the same happiness club …nice feeling in these negative times we live in!

    • May. 15, 3:50pm

      Right guys.

  14. May. 15, 3:37pm

    I would love to see some super touring cars from mid to late 90s in GT6… PD had them in GT2 as race modification models… would especially love to see the BMW 320i STW car with its amazing sounding engine.

    The late George Plasa’s BMW 135 Judd Hillclimb car would be awesome as well.

    • May. 15, 3:43pm
      Sick Cylinder


      Any of the late great George Plasa’s cars would be welcome.

    • May. 15, 3:46pm

      Did he not get rid of that car and build something new?? Awesome car by the way ….

    • May. 15, 4:00pm

      @JohnnyPiston… I think you’re talking about the M3 GTR which was replaced by the 135 Judd… both judd v8s

  15. May. 15, 3:37pm

    Good Evening all, i`ll try to not be horrible here. First of all, this is good news, i always thought that gt6 would come to the ps3, so if and when gt6 comes to ps4, your save data will be easy to transfer, from the ps3, Well what can i say now, it sounds like gt5 with a new engine, a better refined gt5 with all the glitches and shadows fixed. frame rate fixed, car engine sounds fixed, even though a few patches have fixed the problems, hopefully there will be proper car painting, if not that will be on ps4,
    It also sounds like, a lot of the cars in gt6 playable demo are already in gt5, as standard models, but are now premium models, but anyway i`m happy, maybe this is what they had in the works for gt5, but ran out of time

  16. May. 15, 3:37pm

    And alot of people are complaining about GT6 only getting 7 new tracks. I remember Forza 4 only getting 3 new tracks

    • May. 15, 3:43pm

      +1. Yet still those people were okay with that but not GT6? They’re just complaining for the sake of complaining nowadays… Now we know.

    • May. 15, 4:00pm
      drag lab 101

      HKSbro92… Correct sir, I hope GT6 will get the kind of DLC support Forza 4 got there for a while. I really hope custom means everything I think most ppl would love to have in Turismo. A nice livery editor. An auction house would be cool too.

    • May. 15, 4:32pm
      MOV Games

      3 NEW TRACKS AND they lost New York and Sidewinder.

  17. May. 15, 3:37pm

    What a joke this should of been called gt5 expansion or something and they should have done a gt6 for ps4 launch ! SONY you are dimwitts!

    • May. 15, 3:41pm

      Nope, sorry. Do get overself that GT7 will be for PS4, but hey, you can always wait for that and we just enjoy GT6. BOOHOO

    • May. 15, 3:47pm

      Can you do better? They’ve essentially had to remake around 80% of the cars in GT5 from the ground up, and each of those cars took around 6 months to redo. On top of that, they’ve had to create 70 more cars FROM SCRATCH. And then we’ve got 7 new tracks which had to be done from the ground up. That’s not to mention the many, MANY engine, gameplay, and physics tweaks that have been made. And then there’s the fact that PD will frequently be creating new cars and tracks and releasing them to us. So yeah, this it more than an expansion pack. This is a whole new game.

  18. May. 15, 3:37pm

    1200 cars? As in 1200 premium cars? And what about the engine sounds?

  19. May. 15, 3:36pm

    Oh yes ..the comment section once again proves that never will any product please all people. No question about it, a large number of people are in for disappointment …its as sure as the sun will rise tomorrow. I wake up everyday and thank all that is good in the universe that when it comes to Gran Turismo, I am easily pleased :-). I am happy with everything I have heard today and honestly look forward to GT6 …in whatever form it is. Give me a couple of new tracks, involve real life companies for technical assistance, promise lots more content for the future …what more could I ask for? Oh, wait, a BMW 1M will really blow me away but its ok …its no deal breaker. Take my money already Kaz …

  20. May. 15, 3:35pm

    Happy 15th Gran Turismo!

    • May. 15, 3:48pm


  21. May. 15, 3:34pm

    Six bolt wheels for the Vopar Miper please! Is it too much to ask for? A virtual CNG machine for wheel designs would blow everybody’s sock off.

    Always excited about the track creator, l hope they allow us a more free hand at it, with full weather and a 24hr clock on all of them.

    NONE of these featured whips are interesting to me. The Audi S1 only brings to mind the late, great IMSA GTO racing series.

    Here’s to hoping for the best and expecting the worst ;) Play on Playaz!

    • May. 15, 3:43pm

      Oh yeah, that premium Countach… you’d think that 2 slots from that “thousands” parts bin would hold those big ass wings for that otherwise ugly ass Lambo ;)

    • May. 15, 3:50pm

      Someone has very little appreciation for classics… :D

    • May. 15, 4:13pm

      On the contrary. I go waaay back. The LP400 and 25th Anniversary were both better looking with wings. Please don’t omit the fronts ;)

  22. May. 15, 3:34pm

    Man I’m praying that Group B Audi quattro has a screaming inline 5 sound like in real life. One of the best sound cars of all time :)

  23. May. 15, 3:34pm


  24. May. 15, 3:32pm

    How about the SOUND ENGINE???

  25. May. 15, 3:32pm

    7 NEW TRACKS is that it , they had all better be F1 tracks and the new Graphs better be in 1080p or I agree with BWX

    • May. 15, 3:36pm

      7 new tracks is alot more than you get from nearly any new addition to a racing franchise

  26. May. 15, 3:29pm

    Yes! PS3.

    • May. 15, 3:43pm
      e30 freek

      BIG YES!!

  27. May. 15, 3:29pm

    BWX obviously a Forza/microsoft fanboy get a life mate, if you hate GT5 that much what the hell are you you doing here.
    Great Trailer, showing the Lamborghini LP400 in premium ( did you read that BWX, thats a premium Lambo LP400, if you bothered to click on the screenshots you would see that ) i think we can expect ALL premiums, the new tracks/locations look stunning, very exciting, GT6 is the game that Kaz wanted GT5 to be, i think the trailer is awesome, nothing negative to say about any of it, great news, great screen shots, great trailer…can’t wait.

  28. May. 15, 3:27pm

    Ok, I’m excited. It looks like PD WAS able to optimize GT on the PS3… I’m probably going o come by a PS4 and stream it, though…

    Questions and things I’m not certain of:

    1200 cars – obviously, SOME models are being kept in the game; I will assume all or most of the premium cars, and it’s been shown that some standards have been upgraded. BUT – I do NOT want standard cars. Cars that look like they’re from previous-gen is unacceptable, especially when the NEXT-gen is about to launch. Also, if all cars are upgraded, does this mean we’ll still have useless duplicate cars and a HUGE Japanese bias, or are a bunch being replaced by all new models? It doesn’t make sense for PD to add only about 60-75 NEW cars. I’d imagine AT LEAST 200+.

    7 NEW locations – as in real world locations, or just areas, including fake locations from classic GT tracks? If it IS real locations, what about Seattle and SSR11? Will old GT tracks b featured as well? It would seem that Kaz would want to advertise as much as possible…

    Also, if I were to stream GT6 on a PS4, would I also be able to get DLC and updates for it? I’m tired of maintaining my PS3. I just want to get my PS4, and stream what I still enjoy from the PS3, as most of it doesn’t have DLC I need transferring. GT6 will though.

    I probably won’t be getting answers until E3 or so…

  29. May. 15, 3:25pm

    Finaly Gran Turismo 5 “Evolution” is here!!! ;)

  30. May. 15, 3:20pm

    Didn’t take long for people to start whining …. Some people will never be happy .. !!

    • May. 15, 3:25pm


    • May. 15, 3:39pm


  31. May. 15, 3:20pm

    Expecting PC My Garage sorting.
    Please change the font of the “6” to something more normal (GT2).
    Again many special cars but almost none “normal” cars!! (normal car – daily car like Peugeot 301, Chevrolet Aveo etc.)

    Trailer booring as hell (nothing to show?)

    – ONLY 7 NEW TRACKS, big disappointment. And the biggest is, that they will release much more DLCs creating GT6 into Forza or NFS.

  32. May. 15, 3:17pm

    So a few more cars, carry over all the horrible looking “standard” cars (proof of Kaz’s laziness and inability to get anything done… ever), a couple more tracks.. tweak physics (something GT5 continually did anyway) and call it a day- There’s your GT6.

    Wow. GT6 is going to be the most pathetic excuse for a “new” Gran Turismo ever. I can honestly say, GT6 will be the first Gran Turismo I do not buy, and do not care about because Kaz has ruined GT.

    Fix the ridiculously bad “ai”, fix the ridiculously bad A-Spec single player campaign… er.. I mean ‘grind session’, get rid of all the standard cars and deliver twice as many tracks as there are in GT5. Then maybe it’ll be worth it.

    I cannot believe there was no mention of ai or A-Spec. Might as well just keep playing GT5, which I don’t.. because it sucks.

    • May. 15, 3:20pm

      Don’t buy it then, childish people like you won’t be missed on it

    • May. 15, 3:21pm

      How he can be childish??!!

    • May. 15, 3:25pm

      relax dude! this is just a reveal! kaz even said more will come at e3! and its didnt say anywhere that the standard cars would be back, it said 1200 cars in the game. For all we no he fixed everything you just cried about. Do you think is possible he didnt expalin every aspect of the game one the “day 1” reveal? has any game company done that??????

    • May. 15, 3:27pm

      Yep agreed RedDevil, +1

    • May. 15, 3:38pm

      I bet you’re gonna buy gt6 because of your high curiousity when all these ‘not so childish people’ already play it

    • May. 15, 3:39pm

      BWX gets his “little” GT car club, yet still he complains. BWX you are now just whining for the sake of whining. Thank you for proving yourself, BABY!

    • May. 15, 3:43pm

      +1 Toko

    • May. 15, 3:51pm

      We’ll get more info at E3…

      I honestly doubt Kaz would be daft enough to include standard model cars, and carry the useless duplicate cars a premiums as well.

  33. May. 15, 3:15pm

    Porsche would be nice heck they have the whole Audi/VW AG manufacturers why not Porsche.But I would be ok with RUF again as long as we have some sort of forced induction flat 6 in the game they sounds great and have a smooth power band also quite torquey chracterristics of an inline 6 and a v6 what more ya need lol.

    • May. 15, 3:29pm

      RUF is improved Porsches.

  34. May. 15, 3:14pm

    I’m surprised they have an Alfa Romeo TZ3 Stradale. Basically it’s just an old Dodge Viper SRT10. Same engine, same interior, same power but different body…hmmm, not much of a difference to me, it will just be a very fast Alfa. Hopefully we’ll get to see the Ferrari F12 in GT6 as we have talked about the car non-stop for the past week.

    So GT6 is going to be pushing the boundaries of the PS3 to it’s limits, I always knew the PS3 is more capable than some people might think. All I can say is that I’m hoping GT6 won’t have delays in it’s creation towards the release date, also hoping for no prologue version. PD now proves that GT is and always will be the king of car simulators, no more debates about Forza vs GT because clearly GT has already won.

    As for the cars. I see they have a Tesla model S, that’s great, we needed a bit more powerful and good looking saloon cars in the GT series. As far as I can tell, I didn’t hear anything about off-road cars like Land Rover or Ford, but I shouldn’t be speculating about that, this is still a concept and more are yet to come.

    • May. 15, 3:18pm

      They already pushed it to it’s limits. Look at the shadows and dust.. it looks like crap. It will still look like crap. GT6 should never be released on the old pathetic PS3.

    • May. 15, 3:44pm

      BWX you cry,I laugh…

    • May. 15, 3:49pm

      @BWX how old are you seriously? Do you call yourself a fan or a hater?

    • May. 15, 4:14pm

      BWX is a troll, and a BIG ANNOYING ONE too who cries over everything that’s GT. Don’t worry though, he’s all talk now but when GT6 releases, just watch how fast he’ll pick it up. ;)

  35. May. 15, 3:13pm

    Please Porsche please please please!!!

    • May. 15, 3:15pm

      It won’t be in.

    • May. 15, 3:19pm

      RUF is tunning Porsches!

    • May. 15, 5:05pm

      Nah, Ruf are not tunned Porsches. They are a manufacturer of their own. Still, as close as it gets to having Porsche.

    • May. 15, 9:49pm

      Ruf manufactures their own cars, but they use Porsche chassis. That explains why they look like Porsches.

      The closest we’ll get to driving one in the GT series.

      But I’m fine with that.

  36. May. 15, 3:10pm

    What about particles and leaves pictures/video ? As Jordan twitted.

  37. May. 15, 3:09pm

    Was anyone else hyperventilating?

  40. May. 15, 3:03pm

    Im sceptical about the release date too.I do expect a few put backs.But I look at it like this at least we are to the point that PD has actually officially annonced GT6 now all we can do is wait. So stage 1 announcing stage complete.

  41. May. 15, 3:00pm

    I hope they add newer cars.Their are so many good new cars that have come out lately.Auto industry is in a good place right now but a lot of the cars look too similar and are a little hefty but they have the power to back it up.

    • May. 15, 3:17pm

      Newer cars – definitely!

      More Australian cars – fingers crossed!!

    • May. 15, 3:20pm

      You’re wrong, new cars are turd and lifeless, old cars are far more fun and wonderful, if you like new cars well… then it shows you don’t know much about cars.

    • May. 15, 3:33pm

      What a ridiculous thing to say.

  42. May. 15, 2:59pm

    E3 and Gamescom are going to be awesome. I cannot wait until those events.

  43. May. 15, 2:59pm

    Looking good! actually got excited about this :)

  44. May. 15, 2:57pm

    Cannot wait to put aero mods on Martin Brundle’s Rocket! (The orange light-weight car that looks like an old F1 car which it is based on but for the road.)

    • May. 15, 3:52pm
      Sick Cylinder

      Gordon Murray’s Rocket – 370kg. Yamaha bike engined – should be great fun to drive.

  45. May. 15, 2:56pm

    So carrying over all the cars from gt5, does that mean as they are I.e. standard or are they all going to be upgraded to premiums that’s what I wanna know.

    • May. 15, 3:22pm

      We can only hope that ALL cars go premium!

      Remember, a few cars were released as DLC and we got 1 that was already in the game – the Jaguar XJ9 LM car! My belief is that that was just a teaser for what they are doing or have done for GT6!

  46. May. 15, 2:55pm

    Please forgive me, firstly for not having read all the previous comments so sorry if any of these points have already been covered, but mainly for being cynical here. I want to be excited about this, I really honestly do, but I can’t help having a couple of doubts about this. Firstly, the release date. After the numerous delays GT5 suffered, do people still have faith that PD are going to be able to stick to having GT6 finished by the end of the year? I guess if a lot of the cars and tracks are transferred straight from GT5 then this would fairly drastically cut down the development time, but this brings me to my second concern, which I believe a couple of people have already highlighted, the return of “standards” which would be a big disappointment in my opinion.
    I also can’t help but be cynical about the claim of “Multiple aerodynamic parts and custom wheels will be available for almost all cars”. You could argue that this isn’t new at all seeing as pretty much all the standards have a choice of 3 different rear wings, so I’ll be reserving judgement on that one.
    On the plus side, the new physics model does sound very promising, so I will look forward to seeing more trailers of that in action.
    As I said at the start of this ramble, I really do want to be excited about the prospect of a new Gran Turismo game, so I sincerely hope that all of my doubts are proven to be completely wrong and we’re all enjoying this by Christmas!

    • May. 15, 3:12pm

      It’s a gt5 evolution, so not the same problem as GT5 delays :)

    • May. 15, 3:22pm

      No worries man, no one is going to throw tomato’s at you for having concerns. I feel the same actually though it is early to cast judgment, It just feel’s more like GT5.2 upgrade rather than a fresh game. Maybe it is going to be a fresh up to date game, but my concerns are has Kaz and PD learnt from old mistakes !!

      Excited but not 100% convinced yet.

    • May. 15, 3:22pm


    • May. 15, 3:29pm

      PD have been on GT6 since the PS3 came out!
      Sure, they took their time with GT5 and we had a few delays, but because it’s still on the PS3, there should not be any delays at all.
      On the other hand, when the PS4 comes out, expect delays for the release of GT7!

  47. May. 15, 2:55pm

    I’d love to see more bmw’s and it looks like there may be a livery maker which is awesome.

  48. May. 15, 2:55pm

    I cant help but be a little excited about this.But best we can do is shut up wait and see.Hope for the best expect the worst.Long live PD

    • May. 15, 3:08pm

      Right on E46… hope for the best and expect the worst. Meaning, PD and Kaz are working their arsses off to improve our experience with Gran Turismo. But in pure salesmanship fashion they won’t bother to remind us that what they’re implying will not be applied across the board.

  49. May. 15, 2:54pm

    As far as 1200 cars goes…. are some standards that will transfer to premiums be considered a “new” car?? I wonder. Happy about the news…..

    I think it will be released the day before Thanksgiving here in the U.S.
    11/27/13 ???

  50. May. 15, 2:52pm

    this is good news, can’t wait for it. glad to see the quattro make it for :). hopefully some old skool gt tracks ;)

  51. May. 15, 2:49pm

    So nothing yet about new AI?

    • May. 15, 2:53pm

      What are you hoping the AI will do?

    • May. 15, 2:55pm

      Hopefully react more realistically and provide a better challenge.

    • May. 15, 3:26pm

      Would also be nice if we could select our A.I opponents. It would be nice if they basically just give us options on or offline to fix and play out a race the gamer would want.

    • May. 15, 9:54pm

      I hope the A.I. Is more aggressive this go around.

      Maybe PD will program in that one a**hole driver that you always see online who uses other cars to slow down for turns and deliberately (and frequently) performs the P.I.T. Maneuver on you when your in the lead on the last lap!


  52. May. 15, 2:48pm

    LETS GO GT6!

  53. May. 15, 2:48pm

    I’m afraid that everyones expectations are sooooo high, so that everyone will be disapointed in the end.
    Thats so sad.

    So i will not expect enything, so that i’m happy when i play it the first time and not be disapointed.

    At least i don’t have to by the ps4 on its release date. ;)

  54. May. 15, 2:47pm

    What are the new Tracks?

    So GT6 will be playable on PS3?… Thats good news..

    I’d like to see more Australian content

    • May. 15, 2:59pm

      Isn’t one of the new tracks supposed to be Bathurst?

    • May. 16, 1:01am

      The track was scanned… So I’d love to see it in GT6… with some V8 Supercars to go with it..

  55. May. 15, 2:44pm

    Id love to see the end of standard cars/tracks (I highly doubt we have seen the end of Standard cars, Does that mean the standard race tracks also remain?)

    Also i hope the single player experience is much better (selecting A.I opponents and difficulty settings)

    And for the life of me, please improve on the sound.

    Just hope Kaz and PD have taken notes from what other racing games are doing so we can enjoy a much more up to date experience.

    So far so good, can’t wait for more info.

    Oh and bigup Jordan, nuff respect bro.

    • May. 15, 2:55pm

      What tracks are standard?! They all looked great to me

    • May. 15, 3:04pm

      I wonder if standard cars will be Gran Turismo 5’s premium cars…

  56. May. 15, 2:43pm

    What great news! Congrats/thanks to the PD team on 15 years of Gran Turismo and for making the announcement of GT6 such a positive and exciting event.
    #15yearsof GT was a close second best to being at Silverstone and the outpouring tweets, images and video link allowed a simultaneous announcement, including the updating of the site. It really suggests that the lesson has been learned of teasing and delaying, like the release of GT5.
    Roll on ‘Holiday 2013’ when ever that is,…(mine’s booked in July this year PD ;) )

  57. May. 15, 2:42pm

    I certainly disagree that GT should get matchmaking because matchmaking means rankings and records. Deciding that GT5 would have no ranks online was probably the smartest thing PD did in GT5, and I would truly HATE for it to get ranks in this new game. All ranks and W/L records do for games is make the majority of players play like d-bags wrecking you for every position on the track to save their precious ranks. Almost every racing game with ranks is PLAGUED with this issue. Meanwhile GT5 is probably the #1 most populated online racing game in the world on a nightly basis, yet has by FAR the least amount of jerks racing online. It’s not a coincidence. It’s because GT5 has no rankings.

    The only rankings I like for GT are the same things that are ranked in GT5. Online ranked time trials, things like that.

    • May. 15, 2:43pm

      Woops, had my javascript off, that was supposed to be a reply to TomBrady

  58. May. 15, 2:40pm

    So that orange car (‘Rocket’ as it’s called in the screenshot URLs), is that a real car or one of those fantasy GT Openwheel cars that have been included in the series over the years?

    • May. 15, 3:49pm
      Sick Cylinder

      The Rocket is a real car designed by Gordon Murray, 370kg, Yamaha motorbike engine powered – should be great fun to drive in the game.

  59. May. 15, 2:40pm

    I am wondering about a couple of things about GT6 that really have me interested.

    Kaz saying that cars will be contiually added online & us being able to personalize our custom cars in the greatist level possible.
    What do those means?
    A possible livery editior feature? Being about to have more tuning options for the cars such as tire pressure?
    Could new cars be possibly added constantly to GT6 as online DLC? If that’s the case for any of those 3, then I’m definitely going to love GT6.

    • May. 15, 2:40pm

      darn, I left a bunch of typos here. Oops, sorry guys; my mistake.

  60. May. 15, 2:38pm

    People keep reading “Players can create their own personalised custom car” as “Livery Editor” when in reality watch it be the exact same thing we have now just a few more different wings/bits to add onto it & maybe a custom license plate. hah

    I’m guessing the PC/Phone/Tablet will basically be similar to the interaction that a PC can do now which is B-Spec stuff & likely you’ll be able to use it to message friends and check in on what’s new in the game but nothing really more then that.

    • May. 15, 3:14pm

      No, this is a new feature

  61. May. 15, 2:38pm

    Finally, can’t wait till it releases!

  62. May. 15, 2:37pm

    Ronda City (Spain) is in the Trailer :)

  63. May. 15, 2:36pm

    If it isn’t too late to ask PD questions, is there any chance of a more detailed engine config?

    I build cars as a hobby, mine and my friends’. I’d like to actually choose parts, aftermarket or factory, and mix and match to create my combo. I want to build my car, or as close as I possibly can, for GT5 or GT6.

    As such, I’d like to request the Ford Maverick and Mercury Comet, but I’m not holding my breath.

  64. May. 15, 2:36pm

    “players can personalize their own custom cars in game to the greatest ever level possible.”

    Let’s hope this means a liver editor. ; )

    Thanks a-lot for the coverage and information Jordan. Hope the trip was amazing! :gtpflag:!

    • May. 15, 2:37pm

      Livery* lol

    • May. 15, 3:00pm

      Lol yeh we can edit the internal organs of our driver, like their liver :P

    • May. 15, 3:32pm

      Hoping for a kidney editor too!

    • May. 15, 9:05pm

      I could use a liver editor irl lol

  65. May. 15, 2:36pm

    I’m glad we are getting new dynamics in the upcoming title. Hopefully we can see added factors to the vehicles and tracks.

  66. May. 15, 2:35pm

    ya this is great an all but do they still have standerd cars were u cnt c the inside?or is it finally fixed

  67. May. 15, 2:34pm

    Good reporting, Jordan. I look forward to seeing more information released – but not too sure what to think on “all GT5 cars return”. I suppose even if there’s several hundred standard cars it’s better than nothing. Still, too early to judge, really.

    In some ways I’m glad to see a PS3 release so I can play this game without spending on the new system. But it would have been good to see what they could do with PS4’s tech.

    • May. 15, 3:41pm

      Keep in mind that one of the DLC cars was already in the game – the Jaguar XJ9R Race Car!

      So we ended up with two of them, one standard, one premium.

      I have a feeling that they have been working on GT6 since before the release of GT5, which is why GT5 was delayed, so all (or at least 80%) should be upgraded by now!

  68. May. 15, 2:33pm

    Can’t wait to try the Light Car open wheel thing. It’s 370kg and 148hp so it should be a ton of fun like a formula ford or classic F1 car. Plus the xbox should be cool too. Hope they upgrade some of the standard cars like the veyron and add more european cars.

    Course maker improvements sound awesome as well as the customization and mutliplayer stuff. I hope the clubs and event creator is implemented intuitively. It’s a great idea but if not done in an intelligent way it could be disappointing.

    Most of all I really hope they add the ability to do matchmaking for races. Most of us don’t want to have to spend time searching for racing lobbies that we like, they should make matchmaking to narrow down the two groups in GT5s fanbase, the casuals and the sim racers. I’ve been saying for a while they should do that, there should be ranked and unranked race lobbies plus custom lobbies. THe ranked lobbies should have full realism like tire wear, heavy damage, no driver aids except maybe ABS (especially don’t let people use auto tranny, crazy that there’s not an option to restrict that), and the cars should also be restricted to the tires they came with. Unranked lobbies could allow assists, grippier tires, light damage, etc.

    • May. 15, 2:33pm

      lol xbox, I meant xbow

    • May. 15, 7:22pm

      Im cool with auto transfer on cars that dont have a manual option or at least had the option FOR an auto trans.

  69. May. 15, 2:31pm

    Dunno, those screens are nice but not really mindblowing. The car models look good, but pCARS car models look better. Silverstone looks nice but RRRE and Grid 2 look nicer.

    Cool to hear that they are working on some of the biggest criticism that players had about GT5. Personally, I really, really hope for a challenging AI this time and for more realistic and exciting racing. And better sound, of course. I ll buy it anyway for the Quattro S1 and the Dino alone, but to keep me playing they have to make the game part much better, not only the driving part.

    Oh and Kaz… please no more endurance races @ Tsukuba, please! Have mercy! :D

  70. May. 15, 2:30pm

    Hope there are no standards. Other than that I think I’ll be happy with whatever new stuff we get with this game.

  71. May. 15, 2:29pm

    They said there will be over 1200 cars in this game, including ALL from GT5.

    Does that mean we’ll have Standards again…?

  72. May. 15, 2:28pm

    Multi Device Compatibility

    Smart Phone

    Can I game it on my PC?

    • May. 15, 2:35pm

      No they mean it’ll be like Call of Duty and battlefield where you can do things on your profile with a PC. GT is not going to the PC ever dude

    • May. 15, 2:36pm

      Nope. It’s their way of saying “we’ll have a dedicated website”.

  73. May. 15, 2:24pm

    Good work Jordan! Perhaps you are not allowed to write what you want just yet so you get to drive what you want :)
    But as soon as the adrenaline stuff is done…please report regarding sound and AI

  74. May. 15, 2:23pm

    Sterling work today Jordan. I hope you enjoy your hands-on time with the game today.

  75. May. 15, 2:23pm

    Greatest news of the year for me…GT6 on PS3, better engine, new livery editor with more parts, more tracks, better comunity features, more cars, better course maker… hoping the ultimate GT experience will arrive in the holidays!!

  76. May. 15, 2:23pm

    Thank you for everything you’ve done Jordan, I’m so excited for GT6. :D Looks so good and love the number 6 in the logo. :)

  77. May. 15, 2:23pm

    Some questions I have that will probably answered in E3/GamesCom:

    will the T500RS continue to be the “official” wheel of gran turismo? or will there be a new wheel released? obviously with logitech pulling out of the game controller business, we wont likely see anything new from them.

    will content released as DLC for GT5, be “main” (included) content in GT6?

  78. May. 15, 2:22pm

    I can’t stop smiling :) This trailer is so epic and has made me so very happy.

    GT6 AND GTA V in same year!

    Let’s hope Sony/PD sticks to releasing GT6 on time for 2013 Holidays and that all cars are “Premium”

    • May. 15, 3:18pm

      Are you saying that the sounds are that important and if they’re not right you wouldn’t buy the game? That’s pathetic if you do mean that dude! Gameplay is what should matter

  80. May. 15, 2:19pm

    Interested in the “Players can make their own perfonalized car” section. If this is what I think it is, will be MEGA!!!

  81. May. 15, 2:15pm

    I was wondering the countach is premium which is great but will that be 1 of the 200 new cars or is it just old from GT5 but Premium??So there will be 200 new cars that arnt in GT5.

    • May. 15, 2:19pm

      It is 200 new cars, did you not watch the clip? There’s the new Alfa, sls amg gt3, xbow etc etc

  82. May. 15, 2:15pm

    Yeah, still too much standard cars… BUT…I’m glad they added a few cars I wanted too see in GT series and a couple of tracks too :) Thank you Kaz & Polyphony from the bottom of my heart! You make my life fabolous!!! :)

  83. May. 15, 2:14pm

    Is this real life, or is this just a dream?

    I woke up to this and I literally ran like crazy all around the house. I hope PD doesn’t disappoint. They have so much to prove after all the negatives of GT5 and what other driving games have been doing in the past years.

    Yamauchi San, I believe in you!!

  84. May. 15, 2:12pm

    My dream GT is finally here!!! :D
    1200 cars, close to 100 tracks (including different sections), improved tire and suspension model from the guys at KW and Yokohama…. I’m buying GT6 and GTA V when they come out. I’m going to be very busy when I get them both!

  85. May. 15, 2:11pm

    YES!! I knew it GT6 for ps3 from the first time GT5 was released because PD always had 2 GT’s for every console generation :)

  86. May. 15, 2:10pm

    This has made me so happy!!! I don’t even mind what else is in the game, it sounds great already :) :D Those of you who choose to whine and moan because they haven’t converted 800 standards into premiums (each one takes months to do, and PD is only a 150 person odd organisation), added new, up to date cars, a whole new livery editor as well as the extra wheels and aero parts, 25 new tracks, each with time and weather change, all in 3 years. Think again. Magic isn’t real.

    Disappointing: More like a GT5.5
    – Nothing about the biggest Achille’s heel of GT serie… THE SOUND.
    – New graphic engine? these screens look Exactly like GT5 (even worst with this yellowish chromatic filter)
    – $69 dollars + $5-20 every month to see Barthurst, Catalonia, and maybe the old stars of GT4 (Midfield, El Capitan..)
    – 150 new cars only?
    – still 800 standards? are you kidding me???

    On the +:
    – the new physics and suspensions

    • May. 15, 2:09pm

      It’s 200 new cars, and it hasn’t been said yet whether there is going to be standard cars again.

    • May. 15, 2:11pm

      I was a bit concerned with the 1200 cars. there is no way in hell all the cars will be PRremium. But we don’t know how many of those were probably turned into premium. It’s too early to start criticizing the game since we haven’t heard the exact details.

      After all the negative and positive feedback, I’m sure PD will give us the GT of our dreams.

    • May. 15, 2:22pm

      Oh deary me, what a spoilt child you sound like…

    • May. 15, 2:25pm

      Believe me, there’ll be standards, PD have their way… But that doesn’t mean it won’t be amazing!

    • May. 15, 2:26pm

      The difference between GT and other games is that PD copies the cars from real into the game, 1:1. Its not like in Forza, NFS, Grid, TDU… where the cars look similar to the real ones, in GT they are identical .

      200 cars thats awesome. How many P Cars do we have in GT 5 ? 220-250?
      Btw games like NFS has only ~50cars…

      +new parts, customisation….

      Just awesome

    • May. 15, 2:41pm

      First of all, it’s not $69, where the hell are you getting that. Second of all, if you don’t want standards don’t drive them. They could have just done 400 cars and left out the standards, and then you’d complain about that too.

      Thridly, what game in this series is really that different from the previous? They’re all very similar. GT5 made the most innovations, and GT6 is building off it. not to mention, you don’t know how the new community features will pan out, that could create a whole other dimension to it. I mean, what series in gaming doesn’t build on the previous games? You’re just like all the call of duty haters out there “it’s the same every year”, what series isn’t like that? They’re all like that because if they changed everything they’d alienate fans. It’s such a stupid complaint, they have to stay true to the brand

  91. May. 15, 2:05pm
    MOV Games

    Although great news, there’s one crucial piece of information for me that isn’t included. Of the 1200 cars, how many are Premium? If they have just added new ones instead of converting cars like the Veyron, All Standard Lamborghini’s and the Mazda Furai, its a pretty big let down for me.

    • May. 15, 2:08pm

      It would seem that the Countach has been premiumified. So that’s one in the right direction.

    • May. 15, 2:18pm

      The Countach can be a hint that either standards have been turned into premiums, a great portion of the standard list have been turned, or unfortunately just a few.

      Still, it’s too early to tell. Who knows, maybe the most popular ones have been given the Premium treatment.

  92. May. 15, 2:02pm
