Oh man. I’ve been waiting a long time for this announcement. Gran Turismo has always been one of my most favorite driving franchises, ever since the first one came out on the original PlayStation. It’s one of the sole reasons why I switched to a PS3 when everyone else was still playing Xbox 360 and it’s one of the reasons why I’m also a PS4 gamer exclusively.
I’ve been waiting for them to announce a release date for Gran Turismo Sport and now, we finally have a date. That date is November 15th, 2016 and will one month after PlayStation VR comes out. Why is that significant? Because Gran Turismo Sport will have PlayStation VR right out the box! That means that if I combine PSVR with my recently acquired Logitech G29 Driving Force wheel, Gran Turismo Sport will become one of the most realistic driving simulators out there, or at least that’s what I hope.
Gran Turismo Sport is being built from the ground up with many new features including a new photo mode that should get car lovers excited. For more info on Gran Turismo Sport, check out Sony’s official post here on their blog.
