    Just saw these on GT5's Facebook page from a little while back:



    This along with the Hyundais and possibly the new NSX and we have some cars already!! Maybe GT5 DLC instead?

    This is exciting. Can't see it being cross-platform - wouldn't Sony want more people to buy PS4s and to slowly phase-out the PS3?

    Beyond and GTA are confirmed for a Summer and September 2013 release respectively, another Assassin's Creed for PS3 is a surprise, is that late 2013 as well? I'd love for GT6 to be announced at E3 for a late 2013 release.

    This could counteract GT6 being released on PS3:

    Trying to piece together what console or consoles GT6 will be released on is proving puzzling.

    OP Updated. :)

    I'm leaning to a 2015 release of GT6. If my hunch is correct, with Kaz saying something along the lines of "5-6 years" dev time......

    Probably gets released on both systems with the PS3 version holding up the release of the PS4 version.

    I wouldnt get too amped up. It is just as possible that GT6 is a PS4 title.

    All PD would have needed to start a title for PS4 is the basic architechture and coding structure. Made simpler in this case with SONY announcing the PS4 would have PC type structure and hardware.

    This would allow dev's to work without the 'developer kit', and start using PC's, then work out the PS4 kinks once they do get the dev kit.

    Dont get me wrong, I would LOVE to see GT6 on PS3, but I think at this point it could go either way.

    Well the PS3 has a 70 million-plus user install base - the PS4 will of course have significantly less. I was originally all about GT6 being on the PS4 but I'm leaning towards the PS3 side more. Mainly because of how casually Michael Denny announced GT6 as a PS3 game along with all the other ones. And all the other ones he mentioned come out in October.

    Assassin's Creed IV was accidently leaked as a cross platform release. They said "coming to next generation consoles for October 29th." Will we see PS4 by then?

    Cross platform for GT6 however, is not something that sounds very appealing to me.

    Well, Assassin's Creed IV is coming out on both PS3 and PS4, Maybe it will be the same for GT6!

    I had a dream last night that I met Kaz Yamauchi in a large warehouse where he showed me Gran Turismo 6. It wasn't just me, other people had their turn to meet him but we each entered one at a time. But Kaz didn't look like Kaz. He wore glasses and didn't have the same facial features as the real one, but was still of course, Japanese; I could tell that much. He also spoke close-to-fluent English, which we know the real-life Kaz unfortunately cannot do.

    Anyway, he showed me a few documents on GT6 (I can't remember what they said) then showed me the game running. It was running on a small, maybe 12 inch CRT television that was on a small, metal stand on wheels. The TV was halfway across the room with the trailing cables (about 1 metre long) were going back into a PS3, not a PS4. The PS3 was encased in thick plastic that contoured around its edges; it wasn't a plastic box, it was a tight case that was moulded around the PS3. The PS3 looked like a cross between the Slim and the Super Slim.

    So Kaz showed me the new track editor on the game and also the new stunt mode (that was absent from GT5). Kaz had designed his own stunt game at the Top Gear Test Track where he'd laid out four orange cones to create a square shape that drivers were supposed to drift around. Obviously the cones were far enough apart that drivers wouldn't hit each other.
    Then he showed me the new track editor that was very intuitive. He created random tracks with ease by just dragging out bits of tarmac; a lot like ModNation Racers. The camera was from a bird's-eye-view so that one could see all of the track they were designing. I asked Kaz if this was very hard to implement and he nodded and said, "Yes". While he was showing me this, two people walked in. One I recognised as an old school friend and the other I didn't. They proceeded towards a PS3 Slim that was on a shelf above and to the left of the GT6 PS3, took a game disc out and jogged out of the warehouse. Kaz looked annoyed.

    He then walked outside, down a wide slope and around the corner, out of sight. I stayed in the warehouse and read over some more of the documents and pondered what else Kaz might be hiding about GT6. The whole time I was talking to him, I was making sure I asked the right questions and the stuff people wanted to know. Unfortunately I can't remember most of the conversations we had while he showed me the game. Then, while I was thinking, it hit me that I forgot to mention the TPRA! I jogged outside and saw Kaz standing there watching a GT Academy winner get interviewed.

    I went up to Kaz and asked him if he'd heard of the TPRA, with which he replied an enthusiastic, "Yes!" I expanded on it and said I was from the TPRA and how much we love using GT5 to host our league races. We then had another conversation about the TPRA as we walked back into the warehouse. I then left the warehouse and the dream was over.

    I take antacids before bed so this sort of thing doesn't happen to me.
