The Waiting Game Begins
In an interview toward the end of February, SCEE (Sony Computer Entertainment Europe) Senior Vice President Michael Denny was recorded stating that GT6 would indeed be coming to the Playstation 3. He didn't bother correcting himself, he just let it slip out - the cat is now out of the bag. Though we knew GT6 was coming, it was inevitable, but for it to be blurted out by an executive took Gran Turismo fans by surprise. By now, of course we all know this information - it happened close to a month ago; however there has been no news beyond that slip of the tongue and that might not be good news.
Let's just get it out of the way right now, Polyphony doesn't know the meaning of the word "deadline" - Kazunori Yamauchi doesn't like to rush, he'd rather have perfection. And most loyal GT fans feel exactly the same, the stereotypical GT player has the patience of a monk and will wait through countless delays to finally get their hands on the next game in the series. However this is where things get a bit complicated; Gran Turismo 5 released three whole years after GT5 Prologue came out and six years after Gran Turismo 4. As a result, many members of the media weren't impressed with the overall product when it finally released at the end of 2010. Many saw it as a grinding disappointment after so many years of waiting, the consensus from many was that the waiting wasn't worth it.
However with the news of Gran Turismo 6 supposedly being on the near horizon it makes us wonder, will Polyphony actually make a deadline? Or will they once more delay the game far into the future? There's no doubt that Gran Turismo 5 still has plenty of life to it, thanks to the regular updated that Polyphony provides to it - but just how long will fans have to wait for the next installment? After all, it really isn't up to SCEE when Polyphony finishes their game and we all know they won't finish it until they feel it's absolutely complete. And since Gran Turismo 6 seems to be releasing on PS3 and PS4, which one would you rather have it on? Be sure to let us know how you feel in the comments below and tell us what you think Polyphony has to do to make this the best Gran Turismo ever.
