    News is starting to trickle out about GT7 and a probable Prologue version; presumably releasing exclusively for the PS4.

    I reckon we'll have a similar release and news schedule as we had for GT6 last year, but for the Prologue version of GT7.

    Reveal at E3, tidbits given out throughout the year and then a release this Holiday.

    GT7: Prologue would compete with DriveClub (set for a release sometime this summer and also exclusive to the PS4) and Project C.A.R.S (set for a release this Fall and coming to PS4, X1 and PC).

    Sony Launches eSports League on PS4.

    I wonder if they'll include GT7 in some way.

    GT7 to See Improved Crash & Damage Physics, Coming Before 2017.

    Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi was in Paris last week for the formal unveiling of the new Peugeot Vision GT concept, offering the first chance in quite some time for members of the media to ask him questions. As would be expected, most of them were eager to get him talking about GT7.

    The game hasn’t been formally announced, of course, so he was typically coy in his answers but did make some interesting remarks. In an interview with Italian gaming site, Yamauchi-san touched on the controversial subject of vehicular damage. Via Google Translation:

    “Yamauchi has guaranteed that the seventh chapter will solve many problems related to the physical impacts and simulation of damage, two aspects that have always been taken seriously by fans of this saga. It also confirms a greater number of premium cars in Gran Turismo 7, although – for the moment – Yamauchi-san has preferred not to say too much about figures.

    “Finally, when asked about the alleged arrival of Gran Turismo 7 in 2017, as initially feared by some sources, it came a blunt denial: “People will never wait so much.”

    GT7 has a lot to live up to after the release of Project CARS. By the time GT7 is out, Assetto Corsa (2016) will probably be out as well. I can't remember a time when Gran Turismo has had this much stiff opposition.

    "Gran Turismo Sport" Mentioned Again...

    First Amar212 mentioning it on NeoGAF, now a Croatian retailer...

    A Croatian electronics retailer has published a new listing for a game called “Gran Turismo Sport” and is now accepting pre-orders. For its placeholder image, they appear to have created their own “Gran Turismo 7″ graphic.

    Typically, this type of listing is nothing to get excited about – online stores often begin accepting pre-orders and publishing incorrect release dates for games years before they’re officially announced, in hopes of attracting links and attention.

    sanctaHowever, things are a bit different with this company, Sancta Domenica. They have an exclusive agreement with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, and are the sole importer of PlayStation products in the countries of Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

    Their use of the name “Gran Turismo Sport” is also interesting. Notorious Gran Turismo insider Amar212 – who is also based in Croatia and runs Croatian GT fan site GTSurgeons – first teased the “Gran Turismo Sport” name in a post on NeoGAF last month.

    Although it would be quite a departure from tradition for Polyphony Digital to drop the number “7” from the name, it may be an effort to differentiate the title, indicating the game might be headed in a different direction or may include motorcycles, as was inferred from the Isle of Man news that hit last year. We’ll just have to wait and see.

    Could GT7 be Gran Turismo Sport?? :sCo_chinscratch:

    Porsche’s Exclusive Contract with EA Reportedly Set to Expire in 2016

    For the past 15 years, Porsche gaming fans haven’t had much to get excited about. The famous German marque rarely appears in video games thanks to a special, strange exclusivity contract with Electronic Arts. Not much is known about the details of the agreement (IGN went in-depth on the topic earlier this year), but to summarize: a video game can’t include a Porsche without EA’s blessing.


    So far, only Turn 10 has been able to tempt (or, likely, pay) EA, with Porsches occasionally appearing in the Forza Motorsport series. A selection of the cars were in Forza Motorsport 4, and the cars just recently came to Forza Horizon 2 in a new expansion pack. They’ll also be in Forza Motorsport 6, but not until next year (the game itself will be released on September 15th).

    ea-logoWhy do fans have to wait until 2016? That’s when EA’s exclusivity agreement ends, according to an article published yesterday by Ars Technica. The tech news site got early access to the Turn 10 studios and developers last week, where apparently some details about the Porsche agreement were disclosed:

    “[…] Porsche will be back, too, although not until 2016—Electronic Arts still has an exclusive license for the German sports car maker until then.”

    If true, and the contract lapses without being renewed, it could open the floodgates for Porsche cars in all types of racing games, from Gran Turismo, to Project CARS, Assetto Corsa, iRacing, and beyond. At the very least, it would put Porsche’s licensing decisions back into the hands of the company itself instead of a video game publisher.

    Of course, this isn’t an official announcement from Porsche, EA, or even Turn 10 – just a third-hand report from Ars Technica. Regardless, it’s an interesting observation from a significant news outlet that might offer a promising glimpse into the future.

    Just sayin'...
