Polyphony Digital Involved in PS4 & Vita Hardware Development

In an interview with Japanese gaming site 4gamer, Shuhei Yoshida, President of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios, answered a question about how Polyphony Digital and the Gran Turismo series fits in with the company’s future plans.

Thanks to our own Shirakawa Akira for this translation:

4gamer: A driving game called “Driveclub” has been announced as [a coming up] PS4 software. However, in Japan there’s Polyphony Digital and I think many people are looking forward to an announcement regarding *that* racing game. What [can you tell us] about this?

Yoshida: Key members of Polyphony Digital are involved in the very development of the PS4 and the PS Vita. I am thinking of asking them what’s going on with Gran Turismo, but related matters will be probably made clear by its representative Kazunori Yamauchi in due time.

Although Polyphony’s involvement with the PlayStation 4 is very encouraging for Gran Turismo fans, it is most interesting to learn about their contributions to Vita’s hardware.

The news comes after it’s been suggested over the past year that a Gran Turismo title for the PlayStation Vita was in development.

Kazunori also talked about how a new mobile Gran Turismo title could take advantage of the Vita’s 3G data connection in an interview from last July.
