It looks like Sony realised that the PS3 had such an awful launch as far as games were concerned that they are making up for it by giving it one of the greatest line ups for its send off imaginable. The icing on the cake would be the forever talked about and never released Last Guardian finally coming out, but I feel that has moved to PS4.

I think 2013 is too early for GT 6.. I would rather believe it would be released in 2014... but if these rumors were true, I would be one of the happiest.

As i said in the GT5 forum, it's probably just a "prologue" or something. They always do a demo type game in between titles

Developers stated that what would have taken months to accomplish on the current gen systems will take a matter of days on the next gen systems thanks to their hardware and ease of developing (aka similarity to PCs). Can bet your arse we'll see GT6 as a launch title. Will probably hear from Dark Souls 2 around late September as well. Stoked.

What PD.. or Kazunori has said is that it will take much less time to develop GT6 than GT5, since the engine for GT5 was created from scratch. Presumably then GT6 would be made for the ps3 as well, if it's going to be published at all.

Still wouldn't be much of a surprise if PD announced that their next racing game after that would be multiplatform, and not named Gran Turismo.. Wouldn't be very interesting, and it would probably have very little going for it in terms of physics and model detail dynamically drawn depending on distance, etc. But it wouldn't surprise me if they finally did it anyway.

Given how much grinding Polyphony has to do per game, I don't think they can afford to spend resourced on a PS3 version. It took them a while just to finalize GT5 with patches and patches on patches. They don't want to do that again.

They're.. not actually owned by Sony. They run a company on their own, separate and listed. And, if the rumour had any grounding in reality, they would be perfectly able to create a new franchise. And even use the gt5 assets, the company's own assets and tech, in that game.

It just makes sense business-wise. Sony abandons the tech PD has invested well over 10 years in, even as they obviously prepare to launch GT6. I think they will launch GT6, and make it out as the ps3's swan-song.

But I'd be willing to bet good money that it also means the end to PD's relationship with Sony. And that PD will therefore wait for as long as possible to release it, even if Sony would like the game to launch long before Christmas.

Then PD would, if they're rational and are running a business (which they are), take inventory - and look ahead to a multiplatform/PC-ish platform up towards what that tech would look like in about 2020. And for example then optionally come back to a relationship with whatever console Sony would make at that point.

But it's completely irrational for PD to go into an exclusive deal with Sony for, say, launch titles on the ps4, etc. That was where both of the rumours came from, as far as I know (note: rumours) - Sony apparently suggested a spinoff title for the ps4. And PD made a counter-suggestion about a new franchise that would go multiplatform.

This is also the model Square Enix has targeted. It's where Insomniac went, it's where Kojima went as well -- it's not rational as the situation is, to stay exclusive to Sony when you're technically making multiplatform games anyway (i.e., the ps4 is a mid-range gaming PC).

nipsen: Polyphony Digital is a subsidiary of Sony. Their relationship only ends if they actually separate from Sony as a corporate entity. They are exclusive because they are owned by Sony Computer Entertainment.

guess I'm used to hearing people talk about it as a separate company. But what I understood, at least, was that they set up PD in the way they did in order to have the option of pulling out the company in between any large contracts.

Even if that's not the intention, though -- if PD as a company wants to make money, they will go multiplatform next, if they have to make an x86/PC game anyway. Sony really would have to be making some amazingly fantastic argument for why they shouldn't, now that the ps4 turned up.

And if that argument is a lot of money or some sort of compensation for lost marketshare -- then Sony is essentially paying itself to lose money. Which admittedly Sony is doing a lot lately. But still..
