Shuhei Yoshida has issued a statement in regards to the potential port of the upcoming Playstation 3 video game, “Gran Turismo 6,” to the PS4 and Playstation Vita. In an interview with IGN on Aug. 23, the president of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios hinted that the racing simulating may not be possible on handheld hardware. You can take a look some screens of the title in the slideshow to the left-hand side of this article at his comments below (courtesy of IGN):
The PS Vita is a very powerful portable system but not quite as powerful as PS3. As you can tell looking at GT6, it really is using PS3 to a very high level. So it’s going to be really hard to move GT6 onto PS Vita.
“Gran Turismo 6” uses a new game engine that pushes the Playstation 3 to the limits in terms of graphics. In addition to the increased details, the sequel also includes more realistic physics when compared to “Gran Turismo 5.” The Playstation Vita is the only system that has been released by Sony Computer Entertainment to not have a video game form the “Gran Turismo” series.
Shuhei Yoshida is a lot more enthusiastic about a potential port of “Gran Turismo 6” to the PS4. He believed that a next-generation version will occur naturally as Polyphony Digital get more hands-on experience with working on the new system.
The PS4 will be launching in the North American region on Nov. 15 while “Gran Turismo 6” is coming out exclusively for the Playstation 3 on Dec. 6. The aforementioned Polyphony Digital is the company that is developing the racing simulation video game. You can pre-order the products from Amazon in the following links: “Gran Turismo 6” and PS4
