Gran Turismo creator and Polyphony Digital head Kazunori Yamauchi wasn’t too hot on the original PSVR.

But it sounds like he’s still excited for how the tech will progress with the next PlayStation.

Speaking to GTPlanet, Yamauchi recently confirmed that the next entry in the racing simulation series is in the works.

Few details about the game were shared, but it’s very likely it will debut on the next PlayStation, thought to be launching next year.

That will, of course, mean improved graphics and performance.

But interestingly, Yamauchi was quick to point out the benefits for VR.

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."

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."

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."

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.

PS4 racer Gran Turismo Sport has been delayed from its original November launch date until next year, Sony has confirmed.

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

I hope everyone has the opportunity to experience first-hand the yet-to-be revealed cutting edge experiences that will be achieved by GT Sport.

If this car looks familiar, that's probably because you're a devotee of the Gran Turismo video game franchise.

The Audi E-Tron Vision Gran Turismo was originally developed to live in Sony and Polyphony Digital's pixelated PlayStation 4 racing simulator, but now, it's emerged as a real-life car.

Developed from scratch in just 11 months, this all-electric E-Tron Vision Gran Turismo will make its first public appearance in Rome on April 14, where it will be used as a demonstrator car, with lucky Audi customers and guests getting rides ahead of the Italian city's upcoming Formula E race.

The car, which will be piloted by former DTM-series drivers Rahel Frey and Le Mans champion Dindo Capello, will also make appearances at all subsequent European Formula E electric car races where it will support Audi's official series entries, the FE04.

According to the German automaker, the E-Tron Vision Gran Turismo relies on three electric motors (two in the back, one in the front), each producing 268 horsepower, with total system output pegged at 815 hp.

Weighing in at under 3,200 pounds (batteries are heavy), Audi says the E-Tron will accelerate to 62 mph in under 2.5 seconds.

For serious racing sim fans, October will see the launch of Gran Turismo Sport and Forza Motorsport 7.

Gran Turismo Sport launches October 17 on PlayStation 4 (October 18 in Europe and Australia), President of Polyphony Digital and creator of the Gran Turismo franchise Kazunori Yamauchi announced on the PlayStation Blog.

The release date comes on the heels of a lengthy closed beta period, which began in March and wrapped up earlier this week.

It has been almost four years since Gran Turismo 6 launched for PlayStation 3 and fans have been clamoring for the franchise’s first foray on the PlayStation 4 ever since GT Sport was revealed in 2015 at Paris Games Week.

GT Sport was originally slated for release in 2016, but Polyphony pushed it back to get the game just right.

Polyphony has not been shy about expressing its ambitious expectations for the latest entry in Sony’s flagship racing series.

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.

Your TV has been letting you down, racing game fans.

Over 10 percent of the cars in the real world that have been included in Gran Turismo in the past were actually outside the color range of the sRGB that TVs were compatible with, said Gran Turismo Producer Kazunori Yamauchi earlier this month at Sony s PlayStation Experience.

Today, the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro support High-Dynamic Range HDR , increasing the range of usable colors in an image, and wide color gamut, which increases the number of colors the screen can produce.

Combined, these new technologies produce far more realistic graphics, allowing photographers, videographers, and game designers to recreate even conventional images in a whole new light.

The easiest example of how HDR and wide color works is an image of a sunset.

On a standard set there are, in general, fewer colors, and less contrast between them.

Gran Turismo Sport, scheduled to be the first game in the franchise developed for Sony s PlayStation 4, will miss its planned November 15 launch date.

Kazunori Yamauchi, founder of Polyphony Digital the studio behind the game , said in a recent PlayStation Blog post that Gran Turismo Sport is being delayed until next year.

Yamauchi described GT Sport as one of their most ambitious undertakings to date as it utilizes cutting-edge technology such as physics-based rendering, sound simulations and Scapes photo mode.

As the planned launch date approaches, the team realized they needed more time to perfect the game as they don t want to compromise the experience in any way simply by publishing it early.

The developer didn t provide a revised launch date but did note that Polyphony Digital will continue to showcase the title at upcoming game events around the world.

Polyphony Digital announced Gran Turismo Sport in October 2015.

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.”

Part three of our bumper preview of the most exciting video games hitting shelves in 2017 sees a distinctly Japanese flavour added to our countdown, as well as a few potential surprises and new properties from several powerhouse publishers in the US.

For Honor PS4, Xbox One, PC

Ubisoft's 4v4 'shooter with swords' has flown somewhat under the radar since its initial announcement at E3 2015, but if it can deliver on its best-elevator-pitch-ever premise – "some knights, vikings and samurais do fights and that" – the French publisher may have a new AAA franchise on its hands.

Polyphony Digital's serially delayed racing franchise should finally arrive on current gen hardware in 2017.

Ostensibly Gran Turismo 7 in all but name, Sport is to feature more than 100 "super-premium" cars and three game modes: Campaign, Sports and Arcade.

Kazunori Yamauchi has even described the upcoming full-throttle racer as "the most innovative GT since the original".

Way back in the mists of time—OK, it was 2013—Polyphony Digital's Kazunori Yamauchi challenged the automotive world to think outside the box for Gran Turismo 6.

Kaz wanted some unique concept cars for the game, and a bunch of car companies (as well as a few design studios and even Nike) signed on to the project, called Vision GT.

I must confess, I thought the idea dead and buried what with GT6 being four years old and yesterday's news.

The Vision GT website hasn't been updated since 2015, and there are plenty of placeholders for concepts that never materialized (including one from Tesla that I'd love to see).

But it seems the project is still alive, and in the lead-up to the next installment of the franchise—allegedly due this October—McLaren has created the Ultimate Vision Gran Turismo.

The design brief from Kaz to the car companies was to design "visionary GT cars" of the future, and that's certainly what McLaren has delivered.
