Gran Turismo 6 could hit PS4, suggests Yamauchi.

Gran Turismo 6 was announced for a holiday 2013 release on PS3 yesterday, but it may yet get a dedicated PS4 release, Polyphony Digital boss Kazunori Yamauchi has suggested.

If you missed the announcement you can watch Yamauchi’s full presentation from Silverstone here.

Now, the developer has told Gamespot, “We have a PS4 version in mind for the future. But for this holiday season we thought that it would be best for users to release the PS3 version.

“I thought the best scenario would be for the game to come out, and we’re planning to have new content, and DLC every few months. Once the players have thoroughly played out the game, if the PlayStation 4 version just came out naturally in the process, we think that would be the best scenario for the game.”

Basically the exact same quote he gave IGN yesterday.

It’s a logical assumption that a PS4 build will happen, given the game’s proximity to the launch of Sony’s new console, but we’ll have to wait for an official confirmation before jumping the gun. Yamauchi also suggested that save transfer between PS3 and PS4 could be possible.
