Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu recently interviewed Gran Turismo series creator Kazunori Yamauchi and thanks to Polygon and their translators, we’re able to bring you some current and next-generation news on the GT series.
First off, Yamauchi-san said that Gran Turismo 6 will be coming both the PS3 and the PS4 and that the game is about 80% complete. With less than three months until release date we think they’re cutting it pretty fine then!
It’s really hard to give an accurate answer to that. The basic components are already complete, so overall I’d have to say about 80 percent. The physics engine, the steering controls; those parts of the user interface are things that we fine tune-right up to the very end. Things like the game modes; I can say that those are complete.
Gran Turismo 7 was also mentioned, with Yamauchi-san saying it will arrive on the PS4 in “a year or two” – we’re going to call two years here….
The PlayStation 4 game which we’ll likely call GT7 will be done in about a year or two, I think, and I think the community aspect’s going to be vital there as well.
And yes, the Antonio Banderas GIF embedded above is completely unrelated to anything Gran Turismo. It’s hella funny tho – thanks to weige on NeoGAF for posting the pic.
We trust that you’ve pre-ordered your PS4 console by now (or are saving for it), but what about the games themselves? Here at PS4 Cheats we want to know what titles you’ll be buying on launch day for your brand spanking new console. To kick things off here’s our list:
Watch Dogs (officially WATCH_DOGS)
Run around hacking stuff in a totally open world. This looks like the single player game to grab to us.
Killzone Shadow Fall
The video for this first person shooter looked amazing at E3 and we can’t wait to play it multiplayer!
Just because it’s Battlefield and being massive fans, we fully expect it to deliver the goods!
An interesting game that Playstation 4 lead architect Mark Cerny had a hand in designing. With gameplay described as “a little bit like Crash Bandicoot and Katamari Damacy, with a touch of God of War” it should be fun too!
Free Bonus – Drive Club PS Plus Edition
Don’t forget that you have a Playstation Plus subscription, you’ll also get a special version of Drive Club for the PS4 on launch.
So what’s your list look like?
Random games related side note
Kazunori Yamauchi of Polyphony Digital has revealed that Gran Turismo 6 will indeed be making its way to the Playstation 4 eventually, stating:
We actually do have a PS4 version [of Grand Turismo 6] in mind.
Safe to say it won’t be a launch title though.
OK, so this isn’t related to PS4 cheats or even the Playstation 4 for that matter, but it is pretty big Playstation news. Especially for racing fans.
The official Gran Turismo 6 game demo has now been released on the Playstation Store as a free download and should become available in your region momentarily if it has not already (it all depends when the PS Store updates in your region). The demo clocks in at a 1.1GB download.
Coinciding with the release of the demo is the start of the GT Academy 2013 competition. Briefly, GT Academy is a “virtual-to-reality” contest which you will need to qualify for using the Gran Turismo 6 demo. Do well enough and you’ll proceed further in the competition… eventually to an actual race in an actual car at the actual Silverstone race track, with the winner from that being offered the opportunity to race professionally in a Nissan GT-R GT3 NISMO for a full season!
Check out the full details of the GT Academy 2013 here and otherwise head to the Playstation Store to download your demo copy of Gran Turismo 6 now. Let us know what you think!
