Gran Turismo 5 vs 6 – Physics Comparison Video

Published - 09 Jul 2013

The guys over at MotoGamesTV have put together a rather different comparison video, showing off Gran Turismo 5 and the GT Academy demo of GT6 side by side.

But unlike other comparisons, this one is not about graphics but physics as we get to watch the suspension work on the Nissan Leaf at Silverstone.

While GT6 won’t make much strides in terms of graphics due to the maxed-out platform, Polyphony Digital promises a majorly overhauled physics engine for the next edition of the GT franchise.

Gran Turismo 6 will come to the Playstation 3. featuring 1200 cars, 150 of which will be new to Gran Turismo.

As announced by Kazunori Yamauchi, the distinction between standard & premium models will remain, the cars ported over from Gran Turismo 4 will be slightly touched up to fit the new title better.

GT6 will also come with 33 tracks, with seven locations being all-new including Silverstone, the home of Nissan’s GT Academy competition.

Gran Turismo 6 – BMW Z4 GT3 Gameplay Video

Published - 29 Jun 2013

A new gameplay video of Gran Turismo 6 has surfaced, showing off replay footage of the BWM Z4 GT3 race car.

As it is clearly audible from the video, the current GT6 demo still uses the same sounds as Gran Turismo 5, lacking the V8 rumble of the original car. As revealed in an interview with Kazunori Yamauchi a few weeks ago, PD is looking to do major improvements to the sounds, a feature that might not make it into GT6 though.

Gran Turismo 6 will come to the Playstation 3. featuring 1200 cars, 150 of which will be new to Gran Turismo.

As announced by Kazunori Yamauchi, the distinction between standard & premium models will remain, the cars ported over from Gran Turismo 4 will be slightly touched up to fit the new title better.

GT6 will also come with 33 tracks, with seven locations being all-new including Silverstone, the home of Nissan’s GT Academy competition.

A playable demo of GT6 will be released next week, kicking off the next GT Academy competition.

Gran Turismo 6 demo launches next week

Published - 27 Jun 2013

Next Tuesday, 2nd July, at 9.00am BST you will be able to get your hands on the demo for Gran Turismo 6. It promises to be a tantalising glimpse at what we will see when the game takes to the starting grid later this year. The even better news is that the demo is free and doesn’t require ownership of any Gran Turismo product.

What’s more, if you are in one of the GT Academy regions* then the demo could also be the ticket for your chance to race for real with Nissan.

The demo is structured as a GT Academy-style driver training concept where you progressively learn the skills required to push very expensive track monsters at full speed round impossible apexes. The course where the action takes place is Silverstone, the spiritual home of GT Academy (and one of the brand new confirmed GT6 track locations in GT6).

In GT Academy regions, once you’ve cleared the earlier rounds you will then have your shot to post your time to the leaderboard and see if you have got what it takes to progress to the next stage.

Regardless of whether you are in one of the GT Academy eligible countries or not, once you have proved your skills and made the grade through the initial rounds you will unlock special bonus content.

The demo will remain live until 31st August 2013, but if you’re in the GT Academy hunt you have until 11.59pm BST on 28th July 2013 to take a step towards a chance of a real life racing career.

Details on the GT6 demo can be found on gran-turismo.com.

*GT Academy regions: France, Italy, UK, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia, Germany and Russia
