The last addition to the Gran Turismo series may have been a bit of a disappointment for fans, but developer Polyphony Digital isn't letting that dampen the future of the franchise.

In fact, when it comes to next-generation hardware, the studio's focal point isn't mind-blowing graphics, shorter loading screens or even cloud-streaming, but making driving even more immersive.

In a recent roundable interview with GT Planet, Gran Turismo series creator Kazunori Yamauchi revealed that, when it comes to harnessing the power of next-gen consoles, Polyphony Digital's focus is primarily on VR.

“The first thing that’s going to be affected by more power is VR,” Yamauchi told GT Planet.

I really like VR; I’m one to believe in the possibilities of it, and it’s very suited for a driving game.”

The PlayStation 4 looks like it will have a huge 2017, with next month’s PlayStation VR title Farpoint serving as perhaps the first “must-have” game for the peripheral, and Sony wants lucky fans to bring unreleased PlayStation 4 games to their hometown for a massive celebration.

All you have to do is get a little creative.

The PlayStation “My Road to Greatness” contest tasks fans with creating a video linked to either the Uncharted or Gran Turismo series — the latter of which must be a less-than-three-minute video in which a fan expresses what the Gran Turismo series means to them.

For Uncharted, however, fans must re-enact a scene from their favorite game in the series.

Nathan Drake, Victor Sullivan, and Chloe Frazer have gone on their fair share of exciting, dangerous adventures over the years, from climbing up a derailed train to uncovering the haven of a deranged pirate.

For our money, however, we’d make a video from the PlayStation Vita game Uncharted: Golden Abyss, where you attempt to balance on an unstable log for three minutes using the system’s motion controls.

In fact, it’s a full-sized, fully functional, and very, very powerful real life version of the Audi e-tron Vision Gran Turismo.

That car was first designed for the PlayStation 4 game, of course, and never with a physical version in mind.

The automaker has made physical versions of its in-game cars before, though only as full-scale models.

The e-tron Vision Gran Turismo, however, needed to actually drive, since Audi wanted to use it as a race taxi at Formula E events.

That meant it couldn’t just creep around like the typical low-power show car concept might.

All the same, we’re not entirely sure Audi’s team needed to go quite as far as they did – even if we’re not arguing.

It s hard not to admire Polyphony supremo Kazunori Yamauchi.

Yamauchi s unflinching vision and incredible passion for anything on four wheels has been at the forefront of the Gran Turismo series for almost 20 years.

However, it is this one man s unchanging vision that means GT Sport can t shake an overwhelming feeling of familiarity.

The continued lack of dynamic weather in a world where Driveclub delights us with glorious weather effects is a noticeable archaism.

Sport s new Scapes mode – where you can place any number of cars in a series of over 1,000 photographs and manipulate lighting, focus and other effects being the best place for this – is the perfect example of how amazing the game can look, but in motion the game fails to wow.

The same issue presents itself in Sport, with cars not having so much as a scratch on them, no matter how hard I drove them into other cars or head first into barricades.

A screenshot from GT Sport on PS4.

Gran Turismo creator and GT Sport producer Kazunori Yamauchi has described the PlayStation 3 era as a "nightmare" for the team at Polyphony.

Two Gran Turismo games were developed and launched during the era, with GT5 in particular suffering significant delays.

"We always have the pressure that we have to sell numbers," Yamauchi told IGN, referring to the disappointing sales of GT5 and GT6.

"At the same time, the conditions for GT6 were really against us, mainly because the PlayStation 3 hardware was a very difficult piece of hardware to develop for, and it caused our development team a lot of stress.

So, Five and six were really a nightmare for us."

Gran Turismo 5's creator says creating in-game imagery like this on the PS3 was a "nightmare."

If you were reading Ars about a decade ago, you may remember our extensive coverage of the baffling architecture behind the PlayStation 3's unique Cell processor.

Many developers reportedly encountered difficulties trying to program for it effectively.

If you haven't read all that, let Ars' Jon Stokes sum it up for you: "...the PlayStation 3 was all about more: more hype, and more programming headaches."

Today, we can add another posthumous log to that already burning fire of developer ire for the PlayStation 3 and the Cell architecture.

Polyphony Digital CEO and Gran Turismo series lead Kazunori Yamauchi told IGN this week that working on the PS3 "was really a nightmare for us."

GT Sport has been delayed, with no new release date in sight.

Polyphony Digital CEO and creative mastermind behind the Gran Turismo series, Kazunori Yamauchi, confirmed the news in a PlayStation Blog post.

GT Sport was originally scheduled to release on November 15, but now it'll be at least four months before you get to jump into the next entry in the wildly-popular PlayStation-exclusive race sim.

"I am sharing some news today that we have made the difficult decision to delay the release of Gran Turismo Sport to 2017," the post reads.

"As we approach our planned release date in November, we realize we need more time to perfect GT Sport, which we ve already dedicated so much effort towards since announcing the title.

We do not want to compromise the experience in any way."

ANAHEIM, Calilfornia—HDR, or high dynamic range, has finally begun rolling out in a major way this year, thanks to compatible hardware, games, and videos rolling out in droves.

But how long ago did HDR content really start to come down the pipeline?

On Saturday, one of Sony's most esteemed game producers, Gran Turismo series creator Kazunori Yamauchi, told reporters that his team at Polyphony Digital was the first to lead the charge for HDR content within Sony.

This proved important to one of the stock console's stealthiest upgrades, tucked into a November patch: instant compatibility with the HDR-10 standard, which supports 10-bit color, a wider color gamut, and a higher luminance maximum than the "100-nit" brightness standard of SDR standard dynamic range monitors and TV sets.

To make his point, Yamauchi simultaneously loaded development builds of Gran Turismo Sport on two TVs: a 75" ZD9 TV, with HDR-10 support, and another 75" TV that only supported SDR.

The difference in color representation was unmistakable.

The Forza versions of CJ Wilson Racing's Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsports.

While I haven't been able to do the real thing as often as I'd like, my team and I had a relatively good showing during a snowy weekend at Mid Ohio with the World Racing League earlier this year.

Cox was working in Nissan's marketing department in the UK when a co-promotion with Sony caused a lightbulb to go off.

Forza's first official online racing championship took place over the summer in partnership with Ford and gave away a new Focus RS to the winner; it's now in its second season.

Neither racing professional is wrong; despite billion-dollar broadcasting deals, ratings for NASCAR have been on the slide in recent years.

Formula 1's global audience is now two-thirds the size it was less than a decade ago.

In a statement on the PlayStation Blog, developer Polyphony Digital's CEO and series creator Kazunori Yamauchi said the decision was reached to allow for "more time to perfect GT Sport".

"While we cannot confirm a new release date at this time, we are more committed than ever to making GT Sport the best Gran Turismo game to date," read the statement.

"GT Sport will continue to be shown at several gaming events around the world.

Even if it is made one day, the best chance most of us will ever have to drive an Ultimate Vision is in Gran Turismo Sport.

A new hybrid sportscar that will make its debut in the virtual realm of the upcoming Gran Turismo Sport game could give us some insight into future McLaren developments.

Partly designed in virtual reality, the McLaren Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo is a vehicle unconstrained by real-world costs or sensibilities and offers enormous power in an incredibly streamlined, lightweight package.

The Gran Turismo series of games has a unique relationship with the automotive industry, acting as both advert and proving ground for many designs over the years.

Although there is no guarantee that McLaren’s new hybrid vehicle will ever make the leap into the real world, if the Ultimate Vision’s looks and performance could be anything like they appear in game, we’re sure there would be an audience for it.

The hybrid setup comes complete with a bi-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine which powers the back wheels, paired up with electric motors in each of its front wheels.

Since its inception, Gran Turismo has been the racing game to beat.

See, while other titles might have offered more action, better damage and greater excitement, none could beat GT to the line when it came to true-to-life racing recreation.

News in 2015, then, that Gran Turismo would be returning as Gran Turismo Sport was, perhaps predictably, met with great anticipation.

Now, though, we’ve finally got a closed beta, which points towards a launch in the very near future.

With a host of exotic vehicle models built specifically for this new title (no dodgy repurposing of GT6 models, here), early gameplay videos and screenshots show Gran Turismo Sport to be an astoundingly realistic piece of gaming craftsmanship.

Whether haring through the desert in a supercar or slinging it around city streets in an endurance racer, early impressions indicate that GT Sport will be easily the best looking Gran Turismo game, ever.

The PlayStation 4-exclusive racing game Gran Turismo Sport has only been out for a few months, but fans of the series can already rest easy knowing they’ll be getting their hands on another game.

Speaking at the Taipei Game Show, producer Kazunori Yamauchi revealed that he has been working on the successor to Gran Turismo Sport since the game launched.

Yamauchi clarified that he isn’t sure the next game will be called Gran Turismo 7, but that options for those looking to make fine adjustments to their cars will likely be in the sequel instead of as an update in Sport.

Additionally, Yamauchi hopes to add an age-specific user interface setting to Gran Turismo Sport in order to make the game easier for young kids.

This option will not be included in the Gran Turismo Championship in order to preserve fairness — the mode is endorsed by the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile, which is unprecedented in video games.

Gran Turismo Sport has changed dramatically since its release in October.

The game will feature 137 "Super Premium" cars – a mix of real and concept vehicles split into four classes – each of which has been remodelled by developer Polyphonic Digital since Gran Turismo 6.

He also described it as "the most innovative GT since the original".

Other features talked about at the event include a redesigned museum mode for showcasing vehicle models, the ability to create custom car decals for the first time in the series, an improved photo mode called "Scapes" that supports 4K images, and a smartphone companion app.

A livestream to be held at 6:30pm BST will reveal the first gameplay from GT Sport.
