Gran Turismo 6 coming to PlayStation Vita as well as PlayStation 3?

gran turismo 6 coming to playstation vita as well 3 for ps3 and ps

Reports in March said Polyphony Digital is already scouting locations for Gran Turismo 6. Rumor has it Sony maybe preparing that game for PlayStation Vita as well.

IGN community member Adam Latham received a customer survey from Sony inquiring about both the Gran Turismo series and the PlayStation Plus subscription service. The questions strongly hint that, like Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, Sony may release the next Gran Turismo on PlayStation 3 and Vita simultaneously.

“You told us earlier how interested you would be in buying the PS Vita version of the latest Gran Turismo game. Knowing that you might be able to get a discount on the PS3 version of the game, how interested are you now in the PS Vita version?” reads the survey.

The survey goes on to ask about potential perks for PlayStation Plus members, particularly the option for subscribers to receive a free copy of a game for PlayStation 3 if they purchase the PlayStation Vita version.

Racing games were once a fundamental pillar of the video game industry. When you announced a new arcade cabinet or a new home console, you had to show off your digital cars and how they handled. When the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 popped up more than half a decade back, it was clear that the era of car games was well and truly over. Ridge Racer indeed.

Forza and Need for Speed still find their audience, but you have to wonder how a game like Gran Turismo can survive in this day and age. Never count out Kazunori Yamauchi’s nigh on voyeuristic driving simulator though Gran Turismo 5 may have come out three years after it was expected to, but it still sold nearly 7.5 million copies in its first year on shelves, bringing the series’ lifetime sales to over 72 million copies. Not too shabby.

A simultaneous release on PlayStation 3 and PS Vita would do much to keep both the franchise relevant as well as Sony’s burgeoning two-platform software strategy. There was a dearth of new games for the PlayStation Vita at E3 2012. Assassin’s Creed: Liberation, All-Stars and Sly were already known or rumored, and Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified is just a name at this point. A major PlayStation brand that is also the next true sequel in a series would truly cement the relationship between Vita and PS3.

Best not to hold your breath. Gran Turismo Portable for PSP was announced in 2004 and didn’t come out until the end of 2009. Ployphony Digital tends to take its time with these games.
