Interior view for all cars, 1200 premium cars and better AI would all be appreciated but what I really want is an end to the god awful menu music.

I don't think it's an issue to be releasing for the PS3. They have a solid PS3 fan base already and it's not like they need the game to sell the PS4, they have a lot of other titles to do that for them. It's also not much of an oddity, they released God of War 2 on the PS2 when the PS3 launched. I'm sure some time in the future you'll see a re-release on the PS4, and then in another 5 years we can play GT7 on the PS4 when the PS5 launches.

Well, Shave ya Head is getting down thumbed, but he's not wrong. That's not to say GT6 won't look and play amazingly, but it's definitely clear that Polyphony has reached a point where they're comfortable just expanding on the content they've already created rather than start all over.

Sony is known for supporting their older consoles for a while even when their next gen console is released.

Reminds me of the PS1, it was better because of backward compatibility with PS1 games on the PS2. The PS3 didn't follow that scheme well at first, but hopefully they'll do the same thing as the PS2 with the PS4.

This game being released on the PS3 is a good strategy business-wise. They'll try to get rid of their PS3 stocks by at first saying that these new games are still compatible with the PS3, so people don't have to buy the brand new expensive one.

Love GT, but wouldn't this be a system seller on PS4? Oh well, I'm sure they can reap more benefits putting it on PS3.

They're not missing out by not putting it on PS4, the mistake they made was not launching GT5 early enough. Similar to GTA IV/V really.
The first game for the platform requires a huge amount of expense creating the ultra-fancy new engine. This was GT5 and GTA IV. But unfortunately, and unlike their prev-gen counterparts GTA III and GT3, they launched this first game halfway through the life of the generation.
Now, it only makes sense for them to reap the rewards of enhancing their current engine to make another game on the same platform, but because they left their first game so late, the sequel is also going to be late. Hence, GTA V and GT6 launching within months of the launch of the PS4.

If they launched these for PS4 they would require a massive amount of work and would definitely achieve less sales (more investment, less return), despite being more technically astounding.

But look at it this way...everybody wins. The developers get the money and acclaim of releasing a fully-featured game on an extremely well-established owner base, and the gamers get a GTA/GT game that's packed with features and polish without having to upgrade our systems.

If they released it on Ps4 it'd probably end up pretty lame. Less cars, less content, fewer players would have access to the game. It's a better move in my opinion, benefits the consumer a lot more.

I'm surprised by this news...The lazy nature/way of Polypony Digital's game development has been abandoned, I suppose.

I'm expecting the next gen GT 6 on PS4 in around 2016!!!!

I think putting GT6 on the PS3 rather than the PS4 will result in more sales for Polyphony Digital because more people will be able to purchase and play the game, compared to the PS4 which will probably have a price range well outside that of most gamers when it first comes out (599 US Dollars, anyone?)

Based on what i have seen from http://sonyps4.com/gran-turismo-6-set-to-launch-for-holiday-2013-with-playstation-4/ and http://sonyps4.com/ps4/playstation-4-games/ it looks like the new GT will also be on the Playstation 4.

The really interesting thing, at least to me, is how are they going to (and are they) make the ps4 version more "slick" than the playstation 3 version. I expect the ps4 version to have slightly better graphics but doubt the game play will be any different.

I would expect many of the new games for the ps4 to also be available for the ps3, i think this way Sony will have the opportunity to build up the console audience a bit before putting a game out that takes as long to develop as GT.
