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

Gran Turismo SeriesHardware 135 February 19, 2013 by

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

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

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

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

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

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