Sony Computer Entertainment (SCE) has just announced Gran Turismo 6, the latest version of PlayStation's best-selling franchise for the PS3. Gran Turismo 6 will be released this holiday (2013). Gran Turismo 6 will be compatible with smartphones as well as tables to enhance the social and community features.
All of the cars and tracks from Gran Turismo 5 will be in Gran Turismo 6. Which brings the total car list to 1200 at launch, with new cars set to be continually added online. Several thousand aerodynamic parts and custom wheels will be available for almost all cars, and players can personalise their own custom cars in-game as well. The UK's Silverstone Circuit will be one of seven new locations in Gran Turismo 6, taking the total to 33, with 71 different layouts available, 19 of them being new.
Kazunori Yamauchi said: "GT6 for PlayStation 3 will bring new levels of authenticity to 'the Real Driving Simulator' as well as introducing stunning new tracks and cars and a revised user interface. A new compact game engine will improve operation and increase the flexibility to expand it with downloadable content. It is amazing to think that it is 15 years since we first released Gran Turismo," explained Kazunori Yamauchi, during the announcement at Silverstone Circuit. Things have changed a lot since then and now Gran Turismo 6 is a further evolution of my dream. We're pleased to deliver GT6 to PlayStation 3 as we have a very loyal community on that platform."
