Clean out your parents’ dingy basements, blow the dust off your Playstation 3, and get ready to race, because, Gran Turismo 6 is coming!
With 1200 cars to choose from, 33 racing venues, and 71 course layouts, you’ll never want to leave the couch, or get a girl friend. Gran Turismo 6 goes on sale later this year and fifteen years after the original caught the attention of car lovers worldwide. I can still remember thrashing a willowy Toyota people mover around Laguna Seca all those years ago – t’was life changing to say the least.
Kazunori Yamauchi, Gran Turismo’s creator and a man who deserves a crown of sort, says “It’s amazing to think that 15 years have passed since the first launch of Gran Turismo. Things have changed a lot since then and now Gran Turismo 6 is a further evolution of my dream.” In the 15 years of Gran Turismo games Sony reckons 70 million people have taken part, 3 billion races have been held online and 45 million online-miles have been travelled – the equivalent of approximately 3,214,286 laps of the infamous Nurburgburgburgring.
Whether you like Gran Turismo, Forza, or some other obscurely named racing game, you have the Gran Turismo franchise to thank. Without it, racing simulators mightn’t have become so big and brilliant.
Gran Turismo 6 will hit retail outlets just in time for Christmas, and will only be available on Playstation 3 (whens the PS4 coming?). In other news; authorities believe teenage pregnancies will soon drop massively.
Now, check out the teaser video…
