While Sony's decision to bring Gran Turismo 6 to the PlayStation 3 rather than its next-gen console—despite the fact that the two will launch relatively close to one another—may have you a bit puzzled, the PlayStation manufacturer is certain it's the best move for both the company and gamers.
SCEE CEO Jim Ryan explained why to the PlayStation EU Blog, saying:
You had GT1 and GT2 on PS one, GT3 and GT4 on PS2, then there's GT5 on PS3 and a space next to it. The difference between Gran Turismo and GT2 is unbelievable, but they're both on the same platform. The difference between GT3 and GT4 is huge. We're absolutely confident when GT6 comes, you'll see a big step change up from GT5 too. There's still a lot of potential on PS3 that a developer like Polyphony can really exploit.
And the other factor is that on PS3 we have an install base of 70 million units. On PS4 on launch day we'll have an install base of zero units. There'll be plenty of games to help drive PS4 – not least DriveClub in the racing genre from Evolution Studios, a studio with a fantastic pedigree.
Do you think Sony is making the right decision? Do you have confidence in Evolution Studios' ability to deliver a quality next-gen racing experience with DriveClub for the PS4? Let us know in the comments below.
