Donald Trump Calls for More American Cars in GT Sport

Gran Turismo Sport 72 April 1, 2017 by

The Gran Turismo Sport beta is out in the wild for US fans of the series. Feedback has generally been quite positive, but one notable individual has a bone to pick with developer Polyphony Digital about the car roster: the 45th President of the United States of America.

The famously outspoken Trump took to his favorite platform to express his disappointment with the upcoming sim racer. American cars aren’t adequately represented, it would appear:

A follow-up statement from the Office of Digital Information & Cyber Knowledge was issued this morning. “Gran Turismo is a very popular franchise, and Mr. Trump is a big fan,” said deputy assistant Dee Seever, “but this is a game that will be bought and played by many young, impressionable Americans. They need to know America builds the best products in the world, and in its current state, GT Sport doesn’t make this clear enough.”

The news wasn’t all negative for Sony’s flagship racer. Trump expressed his joy over NASCAR’s seeming removal from the franchise after last being found in Gran Turismo 6. “When you think about it, it’s a fake sport,” said the 70-year old. “Way too much focus on moving to the left all the time. Should focus more on turning right.”

To its credit, Sony has moved quickly to better align its products with the tastes of the current President. Rumor has it that a new three-quarter scale DualShock 4 controller will be unveiled at the Electronic Entertainment Expo this June. It most certainly won’t be yuge!
