Everyone seems to be worried about Next Gen right now. Racing games, especially, are a focus. Drive Club was delayed, but looking interesting. Forza 5 looks gorgeous, but sparse on details. Need for Speed Rivals was just announced for launch, too.
Getting lost in the madness is current gen beast, Gran Turismo 6, which launches in December. “Current gen? BAH.” That’s what you’re thinking. I can tell. Why care about a game coming out for LAST gen when there are new, shiny things?
Well for one, just look at that damn glorious trailer above. JUST LOOK AT IT.
1200 cars (here’s the full list). Kart racing. Le Mans. Corvette Stingrays vs Dodge Vipers. The classic Abarth 1500 vs even more classic Berlinettas. Lunar Landers. And a freaking Trans Am Firebird. It’s like Sony has a network cable plugged into my head pulling my favorite cars of all time out of my brain and onto the disc.
The launch trailer above — named “Concept Movie #6” Start Your Engines — shows off the magic of the upcoming game. Sony has prepared a further video below showcasing the day/night transitions, atmospheric effects, and accurate astronomy.
I need to take a breather now.
