One reason Sony didn't showcase a new GT6 at PlayStation Meeting 2013 is because it's racing to PS3. When it comes to driving games, Sony's biggest franchise is Gran Turismo. The franchise has sold over 65 million copies worldwide of Gran Turismo games on PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3 and PSP over the years. The most recent game, GT5, was a huge hit with sales of over 7.5 million copies.

Polyphony Digital is currently working on GT6. But it might not be driving to PlayStation 4. Michael Denny, senior vice-president of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's Worldwide Studios, told Silicon Republic at PlayStation Meeting 2013 the following:

"Look at the games coming out on the PlayStation 3 like The Last of Us, Beyond: Two Souls, GT6, and then on the third-party side of things another fantastic Assassin's Creed, GTA. It's important for our content to have that kind of longevity because, as I was saying [about the PS Vita], the games that come through are going to get better and better over time."

Now there's no ruling out that GT6, which Kazunori Yamauchi, president of developer Polyphony Digital, has confirmed is in development, won't also be released for GT4. But Sony instead focused on a new game from Evolution Studios, DriveClub, to put front and center for its big PS4 reveal in New York City. You can see the full presentation in the video below.

"There are more and more opportunities for gaming because people are spending more times on games now than in the past and I believe that people will spend more time on playing games in the future than they are today and it will not only be in the living room but in various places and I believe that that trend will continue," said Yamauchi at the 10th Annual GT Awards in Las Vegas this past fall. You can see the full interview in the video below.

Racing games have been an integral part of any next gen launch. Nothing showcases the capabilities of a next gen system like a game that can replicate the sense of speed that precision vehicles traveling at over 100 miles per hour through gorgeous landscapes. At this point, I expect DriveClub to be ready for the launch window for PS4 this holiday.

As for GT6, which is such a big franchise that it can launch any time of the year - including outside the lucrative Christmas window. It makes more sense for Sony to sell that franchise to the tens of millions of PS3 owners worldwide and then offer that game, or another version, to PS4 owners once that installed base grows.

So they don't want to sell any ps4 by the looks of it.
Why compete with yourself?

That's the same thing I asked myself when I came across the article.

Hopefully they make a version for the PS4 because if not, that's just beyond stupid. Especially since they're not show much optimism for PS3 BC.

I'm going to write an article for Forbes titled "Atari to bring new console in 2013" and I'll offer no logical reason other than "It would be nifty".

Hey says:
Can Forbes try and pull "It was all a dream" as an ending for an article?

Sha Gojyo says:
yeah, but too bad Atari went bankrupt.

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 24, 2013 4:58:24 PM PST
Hey says:
It's not like the Atari that went belly up in the 90s was the same Atari that just died this year either, though. The Atari that just died had never released a console. It was just Infogrames using a more-known name.

Too bad it was a name that became associated with failure.

Sha Gojyo says:
how was it associated with failure? it's like the grandfather of game history!

In reply to an earlier post on Feb 24, 2013 5:05:14 PM PST
Hey says:
And every company with the name Atari has gone under. I'd say that's pretty associated with failure, no?

Yah because GT5 only took like 2-3 years to come out on the PS3, GT5 is not a system seller like it was back in the day IMO

Sounds like the PS3 is going to continue to get quality content post PS4 launch - cool.

It shouldn't take long to make GT6...it's not like they're going to add any new tracks, game modes, or cars. They haven't since GT2.

And yet GT5 took FOR-EV-ER.

I happy to see the PS3 continue to get the love, but I really have a hard time believing GT6 will launch on it.

GT5 took way more than 2-3 years. It had 2-3 years of delay. I remember buying my PS3 in June of 2010 for GTA IV and GT5. I thought it would be out that fall for sure. I've never been so wrong.

Edit: And it is still a system seller. It moves more in Europe than America but its still a big deal.
