  • News Gran Turismo 6 Sales Linger at the Back of the Pack

    Slow coach

    You could argue that Sony supported the PlayStation 3 too long. Sony Santa Monica and Naughty Dog both released big games for the console during the year of the PlayStation 4's release, and the likes of Gran Turismo 6 deployed after the new-gen device. Unsurprisingly, that decision had a negative impact on the latter's sales, as ongoing...

  • News Test Drive the BMW M4 Coupé in Gran Turismo 6 Now

    Try before you buy

    Arguably one of the best things about the Gran Turismo franchise is the behind-the-scenes access that Polyphony Digital obtains at various automotive manufacturers around the globe.

  • News UK Sales Charts: Gran Turismo 6 Falls Short of the Pace on PS3

    Lapped by its predecessor

    There was plenty of pent-up desire for Gran Turismo 5 when it eventually parked on store shelves all the way back in 2010, so it’s not especially surprising that its successor Gran Turismo 6 has debuted with sales less than its older sibling. However, we weren’t expecting such a sizeable drop. Chart-Track reports that...

  • News How Much Do Gran Turismo 6's Microtransactions Cost?

    More than a clapped out Mondeo

    With dodgy digital-rights management policies having walked the path of the Dodo, the latest controversial business practice to catch the ire of hardcore gamers are microtransactions.

  • News Gran Turismo 6 Schools You in the Art of Engine Zen


    Sony’s making a habit out of wacky Gran Turismo 6 commercials. In the slipstream of last week’s silly Japanese television spot, this European masterclass is even more bizarre. As opposed to providing a lesson in perfect parallel parking, the advertisement instead shows a builder in a fluorescent tabard making engine noises during his...

    Splash the cash

    Racing games fit the format of microtransactions better than most, so it’s not entirely surprising that the upcoming Gran Turismo 6 is getting an in-game purchase system.

    Out of this world

    We try not to laugh when Call of Duty does it best Moonraker impression, but the fact that Gran Turismo 6 may be heading to the moon has convinced us to plonk down a deposit for the impending simulation racer. Hypocrites, huh? Polyphony Digital has all but confirmed that you’ll be exploring outer space in its upcoming sequel, as...
