Gran Turismo 6 review: showing off

Gran Turismo 6 review: showing off

Sixteen years after the release of the original Gran Turismo, creator Kazunori Yamauchi and his team at Polyphony Digital are still trying to create “the real driving simulator.” The latest effort, Gran Turismo 6 for PS3, may be familiar for series regulars, but new features and tweaks give it real impact.

The game begins by dropping me behind the wheel for a couple of warm-up laps at Brands Hatch. Right from this familiar beginning, though, it catches my attention with the first nuances of its improved progression system. Instead of pitting me in a 500+ horsepower exotic, I'm in a Renault Clio—a car that hasn't been sold in the States in over twenty years. Its choice speaks volumes. With a massive 1200-car garage, GT6 will have players behind the wheel of a whole gamut of vehicles, eventually including sports cars and race cars capable of amazing speed.

Gran Turismo 6 lunar rover takes drivers to the moon

The Gran Turismo series has always been about realism on the road and in the driver's seat. That's always been the case on Earth, anyway, but now the series is venturing into space for the first time. Gran Turismo 6 will allow players to navigate the treacherous zero-gravity surface of the moon, using a playable lunar rover.

Gran Turismo 6 opening video and Red Bull cars revealed

Perhaps lost in the recent microtransaction controversy is the fact that Gran Turismo 6 will indeed arrive on PlayStation 3 tomorrow. Sony has posted the game's opening video and also announced a few Red Bull cars that give you wings. (Note: These are metaphorical wings. The idea of winged flying cars would just be silly.)

Gran Turismo script coming from Watchmen screenwriter

Are you sick of video game-based film adaptations not being faithful to the spirit of the game? You can put those fears aside for Gran Turismo, as the script is reportedly in the hands of a man who is nothing if not respectful of source material: the writer of the recent Watchmen movie.

Gran Turismo 6 could become GT7 on PlayStation 4

Gran Turismo 6 might turn into a full sequel on the PlayStation 4, according to Polyphony Digital CEO Kazunori Yamauchi. At a Gamescom panel, Yamauchi said that the (as yet not officially announced) PS4 version would take a while to arrive. By the time it hits, it could be such a different game that they'd simply call it Gran Turismo 7.

Gran Turismo movie is a thing, really happening

Gran Turismo movie is a thing, really happening

Two days ago, TheWrap reported that Sony's long-running Gran Turismo series would be turned into a movie. It was a rumor that was so bizarre that we decided against reporting it when it broke. Given Polyphony Digital's car racing franchise has never featured a basic shred of story ever, we thought it absurd.

Well, Hollywood sure likes to surprise.
