Live Stream Begins February 20 at 23:00 GMT
The PlayStation 4 is expected to be announced today during “PlayStation Meeting 2013”, a major press event Sony is hosting in New York City.
Watch the event live in the video player above, or check out alternate streams available from Sony, IGN, GameTrailers, or GameSpot if you have any trouble.
For more fun, you should join the discussion here in our community and – just in case – our Gran Turismo 6 forum.
Even if the PlayStation 4 announcement does not bring any Gran Turismo news, it still has major implications for all fans of the series, as we’ll finally learn more about the hardware which will power the next installment of our favorite franchise. Enjoy the show!
See more articles on PlayStation 4, SCEA, and Sony.
Sony is a business, first and foremost. People should realize that they specifically do things to earn more profit, so it only makes sense not to allow backwards compatability, however cheap of a money making tactic it is.
I figure if Drive Club is a release window title and I stress the if, then GT6 is at least a year after PS4 release. I can’t see Sony releasing two exclusive driving titles at the same time.
Do you reckon GT6 will be right up there against Drive Clubin terms of the graphics, engine noises and car selection? I really hope so.
I quite liked Drive clubbin ;)
I plan on buying a PS4 to my collection when GT6 is released
Good luck Sony, my perfectly original “fatboy” is the last one I buy! It works perfectly, and now it’s useless! Kiss my a$$ if you think you’re getting another red cent!
It’s only as useless as you let it be. PS2 games are still being made and they only stopped producing the console recently. Yes eventually no more games will come out for the 3…but come on! Are you similarly miffed by film makers not releasing VHS tapes?
I enjoyed the show but the show failed to reveal the PlayStation 4 system.
I at least thought they would of shown not only the controller but the system core itself.
“Hence PS4 reveal announcement”
@GRAFX21 seems as though you added “reveal” to the title yourself therefore no wonder you are disappointed… once again many people complaining that they didnt get what they were never promised… incredible
its incredible the fact you disagree. I add reveal because they did everything but NOT reveal the PS4. Did you not comprehend what I said before you replied? Don’t act like you didnt want to see the PS4 Revealed. Take a look at the comments before you…Many are disappointed. However why cant we be? Aren’t we the consumer? The point is they left us all thirsty. You included. “Incredible”… pff.
@GRAFX21… the title of the announcement reads “PlayStation 4 Announcement: Live Stream & Discussion”… where do you see the word “reveal”? The whole point of the live stream was to “ANNOUNCE” the PS4 not to “REVEAL” it. Yes I disagree because they never promised to show you the PS4 only to announce its arrival in stores later on in the year. There is a obviously a strategic reason why they decided not to reveal the console itself, maybe they dont want other companies to copy their design or maybe they are planning on altering the shape who knows… Sometimes its embarrassing being part of the GT / PS community because of how STUPID and childish the majority seems to be… no offence
Like I mentioned…I never said THEY said reveal I SAID that and I admitted.
However a 2 hour announcement…should reveal it to us as they did everything else…IMO. However, they did reveal the PS4 controller didn’t they? Isn’t that part of the system? They REVEALED and introduced the platform specs and engine and also explained how it runs and how they accomplished that. They also revealed the features of the PS4, not all but a few…CEO’s, Developers, Previews and game-play of more then 5+ upcoming games and the season of the PS4 season.
It is obvious there is a strategy. However if I know the PS4 is coming this winter 2013 its not much of a surprise now isn’t it? So as a consumer, fan, and player I expected it to be revealed. As many like I said before did. Whats does your arrogance of what you claim us ” GT / PS community because of how STUPID and childish majority seems to be” A bit harsh on your end…chill out. No offense…
But still….. They never promised anything & calendared anything.
Afteral, it was only a playstation event until the day when it became a ps4 event and even then it was on to announce that it existed now not as a rumour but as fact. Shown a few games, new OS and a much im proved controller. No reveal was ever mentioned, promised or said when it will happen. Even now, an e3 reveal is only a rumour.
PS4 the pathetic show on E3 (june 2013), but the actual presentation of the console will be at the “TOKYO GAME SHOW 2013” (september 2013).
“As the system learns your likes and dislikes, … you’ll discover content preloaded and ready to go on your console,” said Mark Cerny, lead system architect of PS4. “Our long-term vision is to reduce download times to zero.”
Every thing he mentioned can be toggled on/off (background downloading)
Drive Club was originally going to be a “spin-off” to Gran Turismo… like Forza Horizon to Forza.
Kaz hated that idea.
So, I would expect a GT6 debut trailer at E3. It isnt ready yet, as up and till December 2012, devs were told the PS4 will have 4GB GDDR5.
Kaz is going to make the best of 8GB GDDR5…
GT6 will look superior to Drive Club…far far superior, And Drive Club is just beautiful.
Oh, and by saying Kaz hated the idea, I mean he said HELL NO.
He wanted GT… to be a brand that remained loyal to us. Thus, Evolution studio renamed it Drive Club.
Brand loyal to us? That’s the best joke I’ve heard all day.
We all could see new video from new sony’s ip in racing games – drive club developing for PS4.
This game is developing by SONY studio – Evolution and simple conclusion can be made. Sony have bought manufacturer’s licenses for that.
In video there were Koenigsegg Agera, Hennessey, Pagani Huayra and some others cars never seen in GT series.
That mean those cars can be in GT6 car list. I gues it is quite possible.
Sony will soon have licences for every car which will be great for the Gran Turismo franchise!
Personally, I want MOST of the Holden (GM Australia) range along with Australian Ford and Chrysler!
Yeah, I agree with you there. Let’s hope that we will get old and new Holden/HSV & Ford/FPV cars on GT6 (especially HSV E3 GTS lol) since PD will have the Bathurst track in the game and not to mention that Nissan is coming back to Australian V8 Supercars this year.
“PlayStation Meeting 2013″…. ¿ Why they didn’t show the new PS4 ?. I am very disappointed. Day after day waiting for this event and in the end nothing at all. And nothing about GT6..? ? ?. What happens in SONY are improvising ?
As i say before:
“What!!?? i just bought Ace Combat Assault Horizon!!”
driveclub sucks, GT5 is better and GT6 will be even better, I drive for myselve not someone
Honeslty. They should have demoed GT6. Its will be a lot better than Driveclub will ever be.
sorry I don’t need someone to help me play, I do everything my way, I don’t need someone commenting my playing and in the end TOTALLY NOT IMPRESSED!!
So did anyone doubt it?
I’m interested to see if Sony will repeat their pioneering and put a 4k disk reader (I’m assuming Blue Ray) in it. It seemed to be a big hit with the PS3.
I hope they eventually remake Skyrim. The PS3 didn’t do justice for Bethesda due to how hard it was to make the game work for it.
Alot of these games.. were made with the old dev kits..
Im sure being in Japan, Kaz has the team working on the newest ones. Only the latest dev kits had 8GB GDDR5 ram. Most the NA and EU devs had 4GB GDDR5. Sony really upped the ante with 8GB GDDR5.. every flaw in GT5 was attributed to crappy 250MB XDR and 250DDR3 video ram,
So.. at E3.. expect GT6 to top Driveclub.
Okay, who else thought Driveclub was GT6 at first, and was going freaking insane? (I thought the game logo was the dev logo, silly me)
I saw it and flipped. The level of texture detail is insane. That game is already pushing me to get the PS4 a few months after it’s release. That and the new Bungie game.
Same, detail is unreal….. Actually super real. Forza has nothing on them and its an exclusive to us. Agera R looked like a show car, ok PD needs to respond to that now (NO STANDARDS)
Not me! Sure, it does look good, but I doubt that it will feel better than even GT3!!
As for the Forza thing on the Xthingy, there is NO way they can compete!
All PD needs to do is fix the track “glitches” and lose the standard cars!!!
Are people seriously comparing Forza to a next gen game? Try to be fair people…
Might has well be comparing GT6 to Sega GT on on the Dreamcast. Considerring there is practically no solid, confimed information on GT6, much less Forza 5, or even an Xbox unveilling to be seen yet, it’s just silly.
Ah well, take the victories when one can get them I suppose. Yet to be seen GT6 beats a last gen game…WOOOHOOO!
Emmm…. not impressed… wallet stays in pocket…
Agreed…That whole thing was a huge let down. They didn’t even show the dang machine. “It’s coming out later this year, but we have no idea what it’s going to look like yet…but you can share stuff on Facebook.” C’mon, Sony. Get your stuff lined up and then come see us.
Did you see the new PS4?? It’s INVISIBLE!! xD
save your quote for 2025 when everything goes molecular.
I expect project cars on PS4, that will be a hell of a game i swear!
I wonder that there is no section for project cars here on GTP??? Nobody heared anything from that game here?
yes a few people have mentioned this game. i found some comparison videos on youtube and tbh GT5 looks much better
no it doesent look at the new builds i literally cant tell the difference beetween real and fake anymore
I’ve just had a second look at the Driveclub (bad quality stream) video and i saw some bits of track details popping out of nowhere. This is suprising for a hardware tech show, the studio still have work with the hardware, or could have been over ambitious (time will tell).
Funny how so many people are disappointed. This is Polyphony Digital people. Expecting PD to follow a timeline is like expecting a “doomsday” to happen.
Why will Sony show TWO racing games in the same place, for people to lost their attention for one game and ignore the other game that’s new? Why hasn’t ANYONE think of that yet?
E3 June 11th-13th
Great, 4 more months of debating this issue…gonna need more coffee. Thanks Sony.
“Due the fact we knew too much
About the four and five
Six will hide until it can
Kevin Butlers’ Jive”
4 = PS4
5 = GT5
6 = GT6
Kevin Butler’s Jive = Kevin Butler’s Presentation @ E3
Wow, we couldn’t see the ps4 console at all :'( just the controller…
I’m sure that the PS4 console doesn’t LOOK much different than the PS3, so why would they bother actually showing it? The ONLY thing that will make any difference to us, the gamers, is the controller! The only information we need about the console is the inner workings of it.
whats been really surprising is hearing people wont be interested until they see what the console looks like… like how the box looks will have any baring on how it performs
One good thing, if the new global racing game can have the cars we saw, there is no reason why Kaz can’t get them too.
Nope. No news from Polyphony, although Kaz did make an appearance earlier in the stream, but wasn’t on stage. However, that’s not the reason I watched this. I was really curious as to what the PS4 had to offer as a whole. I did get some other nice surprises though, such as Blizzard’s and Bungie’s announcements. Club Drive looks like a very good title, and Watch Dogs looks very interesting to say the least. There were some other titles, but I can’t remember what they were. One of the biggest surprises to me was the amount of RAM was indeed confirmed to be 8 GB, and the fact it is also GDDR5!
8 core CPU too…it’s twice as powerful as my desktop PC lool
Yeah, until 5 years after it’s initial launch and PC hardware becomes 3 times faster than the PS4…
Good thing we wont be playing on PCs then so even if PCs turn into star trek style holodecks still wont change the fact theyre over priced massive boxes with games PS4 owners wont wish to play
How exactly are they over-priced? I could build a computer that’s roughly 4 times faster than the PS3 for only $800. And have access to all of the bonuses PC games have, such as custom control setups, anti-aliasing, higher-res textures, higher frame rate, thrid-party modifications, etc, etc.
At the beginning of the stream Kaz said playstation 4 was like being given a blank slate to work with. SO with that in mind…. PS4 release holiday 2013, GT6 release November 2018. Just hoping my Fanatec wheel works with PS4.
GT6 in 2018??? Good grief I’ll be saying, GTwhat??, who??? while playing Forza 7.
Wow, Kaz got upstaged by another racing game. He better come strong when it’s his turn to preview.
The technology is about what I thought it would be. Very much like a hyped up gamer PC. Cool………………..
Expect a lot more downloading of games vice buying disks. Awesome new gaming platform. I did not see very much GT6.
I did see what looked like GT5 game play. I’ll have to watch the start again.
#worst event ever
I feel sad, almost hurt for Kaz that he wasn’t an honored presenter at this unveiling. Shame on you Sony, for not having PD to talk about next gen, and also shame on you for having Blizzard Entertainment soil your grounds with Diablo 3, a game that is coaster of the millenium. Holy Hell.
Yep, pretty Poor… but that is to be expected from PD. They will lose all their fans one day.. I mean how long have we been messed about.. years and years.
They are probably embarrassed by Kaz and PD’s inability to produce anything decent in a timely fashion.
I love the GT series and will continue to support them. However reality is they are slow and very much out of touch with the car community.
I look at the DLC for Forza and can’t help but have envy. Fwiw I have never played the XBOX.
GT is better than Forza. I have both systems, Forza got old real quick
With how bad and poorly done GT5 was, (“chase the rabbit” ai, no grid starts, short A-Spec, ridiculous B-Spec, etc..) I am surprised Kaz isn’t being pushed out of PD.. I think Kaz was the main problem with GT5, and he’ll probably wreck GT6 as well if things don’t change.
The best DLC is worth nothing if the gameplay/physics (FM4) sucks. I bought x360 just for forza – 2 years ago and it is like a brand new console, getting dusty on its place. Played a maximum of 20 hrs on that console :/
true… not even a glimpse of the next GT title… so much failz…
ball’s in microsoft’s court now
@owensracing and BWX… GT5 is not perfect but to say poorly done?! still years ahead of everything else
ikr, if microsoft manage to get forza 5 out on the 720 for christmas i fear for GT’s survival as the no.1 driving sim
Yippee…more Forza bashing…
Just going to point out that there’s opportunity still at E3… We didn’t see anything from Naughty Dog, did we? And most of what we saw were only first glimpses, and most of those developers hadn’t released a game in 3+ years – Specifically Gorilla games, Sucker Punch, and Bungie.
@Quakebass Agreed, but these guys are still gonna bash Kaz and PD just because GT6 wasn’t shown at this meeting even… You guys are seriously something else and need to start getting over yourselves about expecting EVERYTHING. I honestly don’t understand why you guys even hoped for an announced for GT6 in the first place, my best bet is GT6 could AT LEAST show up at E3 2013 this year.
You didn’t see God of War or even Uncharted at the meeting now did you? NOOO, so why bash PD JUST because of GT6 is surely beyond me…
Nelson, I didn’t say the game was poorly done. I mentioned the slow release. The fact that the cars selection was out of touch. Folks want new cars. They want race cars that can used league races. When your main completion is pumping cars out monthly. It would be a big red flag to at least drop a new car each month. Just one would be great. Consider a few tracks from previous GT’s every three months.
GT5 as for playing is great. However i do only play online.
The wait and constant delays was very sad. I suspect this trend to continue as we see a sparse release of DLC.
I do wish for the best but don’t expect anything to be timely.
I said it is.
“chase the rabbit” Ai is poorly done.
A-Spec is very very poorly done.. the worst single player of any GT.
B-Spec is very poorly done. The entire game mode is a complete waste of time.
Taking out grid starts because you cannot fix outdated and broken Ai is poorly done.
Not ever trying to to fix broken ai, and just leaving it broken is poorly done.
The transmission shifting with clutch is extremely poorly done.. (going into -N- for no reason), bad/ nonexistent clutch simulation..
Dyno sound / vacuum cleaner sounding engines sounds are poorly done. Generic engine sounds for lots of cars is poorly done
boring and uninspiring seasonals supposedly making up for horrible a-spec is poorly done.
There are tons of things that suck in GT5 that didn’t in earlier GT editions. Kaz is the one wrecking GT now because he doesn’t care about the actual game, I am convinced of that. Look at his the interview with GTplanet. He obviously doesn’t give much thought the the “game” part of GT anymore.. he gives is very very little thought. That is why the game is broken in so many ways.
BWX – how is GT5 Kazunori-san’s fault? He is the same guy (relatively speaking) who bought out GT4, 3, 2 and the original.
DONE!!!! Gran Turismo 6 is awsome!!!! ;)
Drive club looks kind of boring to be honest. Race with friends? I don’t have any friends!
One thing I like about GT is it’s a driving simulator, not just racing. I don’t like racing as much as just tolling around a track. Drive Club looks too serious for me.
Indeed we need the freedom to create in Gran Turismo 6, that means tracks and possible cars.. engine sounds will need to be faithfully accurate.. I know what you mean about friends I have the same issue!!
I hear you guys loud and clear. I drive for the joy of driving, racing others online just doesn’t do it for me.
Nothing about GT6, however a few releases seem to be coming out on PS3 and PS4. I’m hoping this means that potentially GT6 could be a dual release game also, but time will tell.
there’s some life left in the old gall yet
can´t wait. I have to continue working on my time machine, so i can go one year ahead and by this thing.
Could you use the time machine to go back and correct your spelling?
I’m joking. :)
Pretty impressive although the streaming was terrible, I Guess I will have to wait for Gran Turismo 6 and whether it is any good.. but you should be able to create cars and tracks in addition to the car engines being faithfully accurate in every way.
GT6 will probably be announced at E3 2013. It’ll be a highly anticipated racing game.
indeed. just look at this website to see how anticipated it is
When is the E3 2013?
june i think
It’s always been mid-June.
PS4 has some heavy hitters.. infamous second son and kill zone 4 are GOING to make me buy it..
Ditto that, Watch Dogs too!
Too bad that GT6 wasn’t announced. :(
No GT6. This time, I’m a little disappointed…
did you really expect one? i mean it is PD!
Watching that Drive club video on the GTplanet website… ‘well this is awkward!’
did you really expect one i mean it is PD
Wrong spot sorry
No gt6 yet!
I hope they release a full HD version of this video or at least the killzone part. I need to see that in detail because it looked by far the best graphics we’re going to see for a long time, or at least a few years.
No PD! :(
It’s fine I wasn’t looking forward to a Gran Turismo 6 preview anyway … #Sarcasm
Release date, kinda.
Holiday 2013 release…nice that Bungie is here.
Forza next developer to join ps4….watch out PD.
“PS4 Coming Holiday 2013” on the main screen at the end of the conference
yes and i would imagine that means christmas
I want a controller… Now.
+1 yup yup
So do I, looks so good. :)
Sadly no GT6 announcement yet. Won’t come today. As there’s still some time until the PS4 will be released, there’s time for PD to finish it in time, but I think “Drive Club” will be a launch title and PD will spend some more years to reach the possible level of detail. Keeping my fingers crossed, though.
seems like no GT6 info :( the first party dev part has ended how all 3rd party
I think someone from PD might make an appearance but only to say how excited they are about PS4. As for release dates for GT6 forget it
Well al these damn Japanese guys announcing their games, so I’m feeling lax is going to announce gt6
The PS4 looks proper next gen . COME one PD the time is NOW!!!
It does? Because most of the world has no idea what that thing looks like…including the people that attended the event.
Hame looks fun and family friendly, but the people looked funny. Playing with move like a doll in the background.
If there is no GT6 on release day of the PS4 then DriveClub will be it until it is released! The game looks brilliant with the attention to detail etc.
In a way I feel like its better if Gran Turismo has a release after the PS4 is out for like a year. The biggest pain about the new system releases is that period of being in limbo while everybody transitions from the old system to the new system. I mean when the PS4 comes out you will get those crazy people waiting in line for a week to get one and they will be in high demand and the price tag will certainly reflect that. For the first few months they will be hard to get and after about 6 months it will become easier to get. If we are assuming the PS4 comes out this fall then that 6 month period comes in the spring, and then I would have GT6 coming out 1 year after the PS4 release, to have it out for the holiday season. GT6 I would imagine will probably accompany the PS4 release still, but I think it woild be nice if we avoided that in-limbo time and, although it is less of a concern to me, would hate them to rush Kaz again like they did on GT5.
Guarantee you black ops 3 of MW4
Nice graphics. It looks really boring though.
GT6 wasn’t ready. How much you wanna bet.
It’s ready, but Kaz’ doesn’t want leaked details so far from release. Which would give competitors ample time to steal and imitate any innovative ideas contained therein.
Don’t even expect to see GT6 at launch either.
It’ll be @ release. That I’m certain of. Just wait for E3!
I knew it was infamous. Amar’s poem tells all. GT6 will not be discussed today. I feel it.
Jonathan Blow? Lol, I thought he was going to say Kazunori Yamuichi*!!!
I wish they would just show a snippet of GT6 already.
Same here. I was waiting for them to say his name.
Oh snap Drive Club looks great!!
Drive Club looks unrealistic, driving wise.
what i was thinking too
To. I’m starting not to like Nfs anymore since I seen drive club
Why is the audience so quiet?
Please tell me PD will be resource sharing with Driveclub. Those cars look amazing
Drive club? like that game for the Jaguar that was awful?
*isn’t watching the conference due to indifference*
No it’s a new game Husky, graphics are amazing, physics could be iffy but it seems to be a Forza Horizon/Test Drive Unlimited type game.
Kinda regretting skipping the conference then.. I’m sure some footage will be out for it momentarily
I smell a driveclub forum coming :)
I WANT THIS!!!!!
GT6 is sure going to have to step up it’s game!
haha thought we saw GT6, but no something new called DRIVECLUB…seems really exiting-
Dang it Driveclub, you made me think you were gt6.
Drive clubs gonna replace gt..
Haha drive club. Take that forza horizon!!!
sorry, i got a glimpse of a car, got excited and thought GT6 :P
Remember when Microsoft said no one will see or be aware of the PS4 announcement… well tell that to the multiple crashed servers… I cant even get a solid stream on any website
LMAO!!! I WAS GASSED FOR A SECOND!!! PUNK’D!!!!!!
Beautiful, if that’s indeed in-game footage. Games must cost like $100 a pop for this thing. (assumption)
This seems really impressive thus far, it’s up to game developers to make the most of the platform’s potential
*cough* get to work Kaz *cough*
MOST EPIC CONSOLE EVER!
Stream games? cant even stream this video
This is all sounding monthly fee/annual subscription’ish. I’m getting a lil sceptical about the whole “free to play” thing. Here’s hoping.
Damnit, Yamauchi-sama is the last person we want to hear describing the PS4 as a “blank canvas”
PS4 not PS3 compatible. But they will fix this through GAIKAI. PS3 games on all kind of devices.
Imagine Le Mans 24 hours online with real driver swaps using the control swap option :D
For the win!!
You can stream your games so all friends can look and comment while playing and help you if you want too.
All games free to play, pay for the games you like…
Gametrailers Stream is still working
off air still… This sucks
ok enough of this stuff i won’t use, get to the cars!
They will want to predict what games you like so it will download new games before you buy them
Stream here broke, now U-stream broke.
Ok, now the English version is gone, and it’s transferred me to Japanese…
Connect tablets, vita and other mobile devices to PS4
Is anyone else go suddenly off air?
Yeah it crashed.
Upload videos of your game as you play
Instant gameplay when you buy game online, start playing and the rest of game downloads in the mean time
INSTANT GAME STARTUPS, no more long startups
Switch to another language camera, seemed too many people are watching the English one… still doesnt forgive that I was here before them and got kicked off…
I hope the ps4 is 800 dollars because I have it right now
No… let’s hope it’s cheaper so you’ll have people to play with.
And will have extra cash to spend on games… Or other necessities…
Nope gone completely now… great stuff… I suppose they’ll try and tell us that our internet and servers can handle game streaming when they cant even handle video streaming…
20mb broadband and it cant even do the simplest thing… USELESS
I got no hope with 4mb then
Live demos on Unreal 4 engine
Dual Camera PS Eye 720p depth perceptive.
If people could stop crashing the servers that would be great…
Contrtoller looks great with touchpad and sharebutton + lightbar to identify players
That light bar was presumably a PS move functionality built right into the controller. Oh well, one falsified rumor scratched.
8GB RAM in it!!!
Yeah, that’s small sized when compared to the 32GB in some computers I’ve seen.
Go to Sonys stream page, link is above…
OOOOOOH i feel they gonna show GT6 …hopes up!!!!
Official name: PS4
I guess nearly 500 thousand people streaming simultaneously is causing problems.
DS4: Dual Shock 4 is SEXY!!!
Mine is down too. :(
Missing half of this because of the shoddy streaming…
Go to Sony, have no sound here.
But here we go, its called PS4 simple and nice! And now games…its gonna last couple of hours?
IT STOPPED WTF!!!!
what happend ??? its off air??
It removed the 240p mode while I was watching! WHY?
Piece of garbage feed cannot handle 360p without pausing for 5 seconds – every five seconds. total FAIL sony.
Check out the other feeds linked in the post above if you’re having problems.
Here it is!
look at the viewer counter LOL
Omg almost time
Time to see if my sleeping hours are waisted or hopefully they are better than me dreaming!
Eight minutes now…
False. 4 minutes.
error. 3 minutes
Wrong again. 1 minute.
I guess that if GT6 is shown, that it will release around Christmas, or a few months after New Year. Maybe it’ll be a PS4 launch title if we’re lucky!
I mean curious…….LOL
20 Minutes and ticking…………………very qurious now. Also the supposed leaked picture of the controller a few days ago.
That leaked controller looks like I’d break it within the first month. I hope it’s just a prototype and not the final product.
in 30 mins … (Kaz addresses PD)
ok team! we now finally know what the PS4 is, so we can finally commence coding for GT6! /marks 2015?? on the calendar. closes marker cap.
But PD has known about the region in which the PS4’s specs will be for some time now. It was not like that the first time around so that brings me to the conclusion that they’re not going to screw themselves over this time.
Does no one here know what a dev kit is…?
I’m assuming pre orders will start after E3…I will be preordering PS4 and GT6 immediately
Less than one hour left people. Where is everyone discussing this?
Try ps4 discussion thread.
I vote for PS4 & GT6 before the end of this year. Oh and the PS4 will have support for 3x1080p triple screen gaming.
I can dream, right? ;)
3 PS3’s were capable of 4k resolution.
“PS4” said to be 4x as powerful as PS3.
Sounds reasonable, if not unnecessary.
3 “modified” PS3’s, and the PS4 is FAR more than 4x more powerful than the ‘3. More like 10x…
Of course it’s necessary!!! lol
I have a triple screen setup for iRacing and it is such a huge leap in immersion that I would love to see that capability without having to buy three PS4s :)
That, plus the added processing power the PS4 will inevitably have could bring GT closer to a true sim than it has ever been. Don’t get me wrong – I think it is very impressive what PD have accomplished with the PS3 hardware limitations but the PS4 could really be a game-changer and potentially hurt PC game sales.
Its on Psu.com as well
Hopefully Sony Delivers Great stuff
and a glimpse of GT6
Hopefully it’s around an hour or so
This works out to be 12:00pm (21st) here in NZ so it’s just in time for my lunch break at work – sweeet! :)
Anyone know if the sony meeting will be on TV?… for my own reasons i cannot watch the live on the internet.
i don’t know, I don’t think it’s being carried on UK TV anywhere….
grrr. I really want to see this meeting but theirs no way ill be able to see it live.
There’ll certainly be YouTube videos after the fact, so if you can view those, you’ll probably be fine.
You’ll have to wait a couple more hours, though.
Depends how long the coverage is. If its like an hour long than i can, but more than that i prolly wont.
You’ll be able to watch it later on the same site of the live coverage… Sony confirmed the video will be available to those who won’t be able to watch it live…
WTF I haven’t gotten the $10 thing and I’ve bought every single DLC :-(
This is PSN… Not GT vouchers…
Unless you mean you’ve bought thousands of DLC’s from hundreds of games, I salute you. You should be getting more than $10…
PD is still going to release GT6 on the PS3 in 2016, when the console is all but obsolete. EPIC FAIL.
Did you just make that up? It sounds like you made that up. Unless GT6 comes out before the new PlayStation is released, there is no way it will be a PS3 game.
GT6 might just arrive quicker than we think. The PS4 is rumored to be a more conventional architecture. This should ease development for GT6. Only thing against this is the fact that it’s also rumored that GT6 will use a lot of stuff from GT5’s engine which is coded for the Cell architecture. How will that transfer to the PS4?
COMING PS4 SHOW! and GT6 SHOW !!!
I hope the announcement is that of Sony buying out Nintendo, so I can play SMB and Zelda games on my PS Vita. And if there is no mention of GT6 at this podium, under the spotlight, then I am turning off the internet, except to keep playing GT5 online.
Sony buying out Nintendo? Are you on crack or something?
The original Playstation was going to be a joint venture by Sony & Nintendo. Nintendo was in, however they did not want to go the DVD disc route due to emulation and went with the N64 instead. Had they gone through with it, we’d all be playing Wii Station 3’s today.
The new Sony Xboxstation 720!! This could look like a joke…
Trolling Much!!! Why are you on this site? Sony hasn’t even announced anything yet and you are already hating!
All this talk about GT6 but don’t forget people, we still have GT6 prologue to go first
You won’t necessarily get a Prologue version of GT6, as I recall there was no GT3 Prologue.
i hope you’re right, i never cared much for the prologue editions. Not enough tuning options imo
Didn’t Kaz say he wasn’t planning on a GT6 prologue…? I can’t remember if it was stated or not…
i dunno, i can’t remember either
If they delay GT6 at all, I would expect a Prologue for part 6. Not sure if they will, but it wouldn’t surprise me.
I has a good memory. Kaz said that if need be there will be a Prologue to GT6.
Also, he said that there’s a possibility that there’ll be a game popping up before GT6 comes out.
Tourist Trophy would be dope on the new PlayStation…unless PD is going to blow our minds and come out with something completely outside the box of their normal genre.
@ another_jakhole – thanks bud, i honestly couldn’t remember lol ;)
I didn’t buy GT5’s prologue either.
Meh, it’ll only be around the spec of a current mid level pc, so in other words it’s out of date before it’s released.
Maybe so, but then, I have a newly built $2000 gaming desktop myself and all the sim racing I have installed can’t even match GT5’s graphics… The closes was Project C, but that has a terrible lighting, IMO.
Good thing PlayStation and Xbox don’t directly compete with gaming rigs. If they did they would lose. $5000+ for a gaming rig and about $500 for a PlayStation. Simple math.
Maybe so but GT5 is an more an arcade game than a true sim. I’d take iRacing, rFactor 2 or the upcoming Assetto Corsa any day over GT5’s diluted physics. I’d say Assetto Corsa will look very nice graphics wise.
Yea different markets. They have to charge a few thousand per console to be able to pack it with enough tech to compete.
$5000 for a gamin rig is a bit of an exaggeration, unless you are using phase change cooling , quad sli etc. which is a bit overkill :)
ralph – if you cannot beat GT5’s graphics in iRacing you must be doing something wrong. It can and does look great with the right settings. Feel free to PM me if you like and I can help with your settings.
If anyone attempts to illegally park into the show, ED-209 will take care of them. Seriously, I hate it when people don’t pay and get things they don’t deserve and we pay a lot of money for the things we do.
Yes I am looking forward for GT6 in PS4 but honestly I am looking forward more for the NFS Underground series coming back into PS4. Something that will have the same wheel forcefeedback that we can use our wheels such as G25 or G27.
I hope you are being funny with that NFS thing.
No you did not just mention NFS Underground on this forum !!!
the nerve of some people LOL
The original need for speed is NOT COMING BACK! Cry in the corner but its true.
even i know not to mention that other title and i like to stir it up :p
NFS Underground and Underground 2 was super awesome! But thats a thing of the past. Star Wars movies can be rereleased in a more modern fashion, NFSU games can’t.
The PS2 NFS’s are cool tho’. Loosen up peeps, we’re discussing PS4 here, not jus’ GT6.
I don’t see you guys flipping on Terronium-12 when he goes off topic in his Weekly rewinds about cell phones, Koenigseggs, Night Rider, and what not. So why flip on people here? Loosen up & chill out.
Just going to point out – and I don’t want to discuss this too thoroughly – but NFS: MW was the sequel to U2, and Carbon was the sequel to MW. So there’s opportunity to do it, but considering Criterion and EA have botched the re-makes of the old games, I doubt anything good will come of the series. Unless they make an HD-remake, similar to the Halo series.
Wait… I just brought up Halo…
ouch, mentioning halo in a playstation forum, that’s tricky lol (jk)
Maybe they would show us a little GT6 teaser of what to expect, like they did with the PS3 announcement in 2005, showing GT5, It was exiting to watch at that time, and we all spend lots of money on Race setups and hey, but sadly it was a scam/Joke from the beginning LOL, because it was never released as announced on that show, that being PS3 and GT5 :P
Anyway – It’s exiting to see what’s going on, and what to expect in the nearest future..
FOR THE LOVE OF GOD STOP WITH THE “SOUND PROBLEMS” I DONT CARE IF MY CAR SOUNDS LIKE A LAWNMOWER I JUST ENYOI THE GAME ….if you really love something you dont stop and look at its bad sides. Been a fan of the series since GT1. never never complained about something. and all of you whiners seriously i wanna kill myself.
Yeah, but, those sounds… are just awful, ya know? It’s like having a race between a food processor and a Dirt Devil.
Seriously. The sounds really need to be fixed, we have the right to say that. It’s not like they gave us the game for free, without us they wouldn’t of made anything..
Sounds need a fix. Period. Just make the cars sound like the engine they are suppose to have and I’ll be happy. The sound effects themselves are already good enough and DON’T need to be louder a la NFS crap. I just don’t want my L6 M3 E46 sounding like it has a V8 or my Lambo Aventador sounding like a V10… just no. They have a bunch of sample already. They just need to rearrange them better. I don’t even care for repeated sound samples as long as V8 sounds like V8 and so on.
It’s a simple request.
Just because we love something doesn’t mean we need to ignore it’s faults. Looking at everything with rose colored glasses means you never want improvements.
the autozam az1 sounds like a turbocharged hair dryer lol
^ Well, that would actually be accurate, now, wouldn’t it…? XD
HAHA! I thought it was a joke, but I just got a PSN message from Sony gifting me $10 to add to my wallet. Nice move ;)
lol same!!! I got it today as well. At first I thought it’s a spam message but I saw that it was actually from PSN. So I retrieved it yay :D saying I’m a loyal customer (Which I think I am have spent a total of 90 bucks in psn cards) hehe
I think that’s the case. I don’t even want to know how much I’ve spent in the PSN in the past years XD
Smart move on Sony maybe. They just want to give an incentive to potential PS4 buyers now that they will announce it.
Not hyped like a fanatic, but I am very interested in what will happen…
CAN’T WAIT!!! :D
I wonder if pd sample Hoover’s again for gt 6 or attempt to get beefy realistic engine sounds? That’s what stopped me playing gt5.
No, they are using Dysons for 6
Well one thing is for sure, if the sound is not perfect on PS4 it never will be.. doubt if I will be investing all that wedge on the same old nonsense.
God I can cut the hype with a rusty butter knife!
Why must I have an exam in 40 minutes!?
Got to admit, this is right now more exiting than launch of GT5. New console, maybe some news of new GT, can’t ask for more… MAKE IT RAIN KAZ, MAKE IT RAIN! (if he even is in NY lol)
*PS4 I mean lol.
Hey guys, did Kaz tweet he is in NYC? All the major devs landed in NYC yesterday..
The internet will EXPLODE if we see a GT6 tech demo on PS3!!
Kaz appears on stage…
New DS4 in hand…..
and Moon Over Castle starts to play :D !!!!!!
Then hit the showreel.. and get the paramedics… lots of people are going to need to be revived if GT6 gets shown!
Im also looking foward to Battlefield 4 being shown.
lol… Playstation 4 GT6 Bundle Announcement leads to Emergency Room overload.
What will happen to gtaV? LOL
GTA V will look like dirt, graphically after the PS4 reveal lol
Considering it comes out in September, I think it will die quickly if the PS4 is released for the 2013 Christmas season.
Or… It could come out on both generations…? Or maybe the PS4 (and next-gen Xbox) will have a release date near that time…?
I haven’t heard of a game being released before a piece of hardware that supports it is released, but I guess there can be a first time for anything…
Yea that’s a good question. Kind of weird to launch such a huge title right before a new console is released. Now would be a good time to release it, let the PS3 go out with a bang.
It will do just fine because massive amounts of people in the world already own current gen systems and merely a fraction of those people will own next gen systems upon its initial release. Some will switch immideiately, whilst some are completely happy with current gen as of now and may not pick it up until well after or when a price drop/alternate/improved model is announced.
$4,000 ea on ebay this coming Christmas.
LOL can’t wait for that. :sly:
PS4 == PS3 + more RAM.
Did you not see the specs? It’s a hell of a lot more than just more RAM. It’s about 10 times more powerful if not more, not just RAM lol
Charge for online play = no purchase
If it’s no more then $5 a month then Ill consider, but it should be free.
My thoughts exactly.
No “pay for play”! That’s Microsoft’s bag, not Sony’s!
Theres a reason Xbox Live’s service is better then the PSN’s
Who the hell says xbox’s service is better? Online servers are run by the game developers, not XBL or PS3, and for less money you can get PS Plus, and you get tons of free games every year, you pay more for XBL and they give you nothing so how is that better service?
Christ I was wondering how long it would be until someone mentioned that nearly decade old line… the sad fact is PSN and XBL are really similar…
Real question should be is XBL 60 times better? because that what it costs
He’s talking about features, not connectivity.
You get cross-game chatting with friends, voice messaging, and with the Kinect, I believe even video messaging. It’s sup easy to back up all of your data – you can recover an account from any 360 (save files included) just by typing in your name and password and security question. It only took my friend about 5 minutes to get his account and save files to play Borderlands 2 at a friend’s house. And DLC is ported to every profile on the console, but won’t be stolen if you do a profile transfer back to another system. So, yes, XBL services are quite a bit better than PSN.
PS3 games playable on PS4?
They would make more money by selling them to you again via ps store so probably not.
It would require PS4 to include CELL processor and that would make PS4 more expensive so hopefully not.
Rumour has it that PS, PS2 AND PS3 game will be able to be plated on the PS4!
Like the original idea for the PS3, the PS4 is to be FULLY backwards compatible…
Through a Downloadable library, yes Backwards disc compatability, no.
I could maybe see compatibility with (interestingly) PS1 and 2 disks, but not PS3 disks. The PS3 had complex hardware (cell-precessor, as stated), and might not function on the more conventional PC set-up this time around.
It’d be weird, I admit.
GUESS WE’LL SEE
Looks like it is going to be heavily weighted in favour of Internet play/Social Media networking, and I guess that is going to be the wave of the future. I’m hoping it’s going to be backward compatible.
Rumor: some social media features will require subscription BUT.. That is STILL a part of Playstation Plus. It will be rebranded and renamed. Gaikai may be included to sweeten the deal. If social networking, cross platform play (between PS4/Cellphone/tablet) is not your thing, if Gaikai, movie rentals arent for you, dont worry, Thats what the subscription based services are.
Online gaming should still be free.
yeah, free online gaming is why I think PSN is better than XBL
It needs to be free… otherwise that will damage sales like a torpedo to the port side
Check your inbox guys SONY (US) gave me a $10 voucher today
How about EUROPE????
ALWAYS LAST one to get good stuff!!!!
Why Sony better then microsoft lawl.
NEXT GEN :)
Enjoy the unified GDRR5 ram Kaz :)
I have a reminder set, because I just cannot wait. I’m so pumped to see what they unveil!!
Why don’t we all wait until they announce it? All this rumour crap is tbh doing my head in. No one knows exactly what’s going to be in it apart from Sony execs. In 16 hours we can all deliberate till our Hearts content!
look at your PSN mailbox maybe you got 10$ from sony(US)
“Thank you for being a loyal customer and fan of PSN. As a token of appreciation, we’ve sent you $10…”
Well… It’d be nice if my PS3 wasn’t dead…
Eh, I didn’t get nothing. But after all these times I’ve criticized their products, I can see why I’m not a “loyal customer”. lol
Ive heard the ps4 will operate on an Xbox style standard and premium subscription, with you ‘needing’ the premium service to access most of the online features…
This is somewhat worrying news…
I’m going to say this is very unlikely and most likely a rumor. If anything, the PS4 will reintegrate the PS+ but with potentially more features (this could mean new features we have not yet been exposed to). I would say that the PS4 will likely have a “free” multiplayer just like the PS3 but would unlikely require a “standard” subscription just for online.
I’m hoping it is just a rumour or like you say be a new bigger version of PS+… would stink if you had to pay to play GT5 online…
Fingers crossed eh?
I’m hoping they run PSN just like it was on PS3, just with added similarities to XBL like cross-game chats and voice and video messaging. It would make things a lot simpler to do, and make it easier to stay in contact with your friends. The the PS+ features could (again) expand on what the PS3 had – better store deals, early access to new features in both games and PSN services, etc.
Considering Sony lost money on the PS3 for years after it’s release and STILL had free online service, I have a feeling that the PS4’s PSN will be free as well. The PS4’s hardware will be much cheaper to manufacture, and the price is rumored to be VERY reasonable for a new piece of hardware. I’m hoping that this is true.
Sony has repeatedly said it will never charge to play games online.
Any subscription to PlayStation World will be for PlayStation Plus style content and possibly different levels of access to it’s Gaikai streaming service. This last part is me speculatimy.
I just read the rumours and had a very worried chill run down my spine, like both of you have mentioned I really hope the Premium subscription is just a revamped PS+, I think cross game chat is going to be a given… only question is will Sony consider this a premium feature?
Son will always provide free services. Damn they`re systems are damn popular.
i didnt get anything because i live in the Uk .
I can’t wait for the announcement :D
Paying to play GT6 would be a deal breaker for me. Hope it’s not true.
No “pay for play”, that’s a Microsoft money grabbing tactic because they are newer to the ganing business than Sony and are greedy capitalist pigs!
