Seasons greetings from PlayStation Store! A couple of weeks ago we announced our five-week long Holiday Sale. But in the spirit of giving, we’re adding a Flash Sale to the mix – with up to 60 percent off some of the year’s biggest games!
It has been a few weeks since we launched GT Sport, and it’s been really exciting to see so many people take to the track. In fact, we’ve already seen over 26 million hours of gameplay around the world, so now we want to share with you our plan for what’s next with the game, including new cars and game features through Patch 1.06 in November, and the introduction of the “GT League” in December.
Get ready to put yourself in the driver’s seat with the PlayStation VR Gran Turismo Sport bundle, which starts to hit shelves in the next few days. The bundle will include the PS VR system, PlayStation Camera, a physical copy of GT Sport, and an updated version of the PS VR Demo Disc, featuring 13 PS VR demo experiences. The PS VR GT Sport bundle will be available in retailers across the U.S. for $399.99 USD (MSRP) and in Canada for $499.99 CAD (MSRP) – so you’re getting GT Sport at no extra charge with the core PS VR bundle, which is already available at a great value. And just a quick reminder that you’ll also need a separately sold PlayStation 4 system to play PS VR.
The wait is over — Gran Turimo Sport is finally here!
Built from the ground up for PS4, GT Sport is Polyphony’s most ambitious undertaking as it utilizes the latest form of technologies to deliver a true “Real Driving Simulator.” We can’t wait for our GT fans to start racing this week
For those that participated in the GT Sport Limited Time Demo, it gave our fans a chance to experience a taste of Sport, Campaign, and Arcade mode. New features to the series including Scapes Photography and Custom Livery Editor were also available for the very first time.
Kazunori Yamauchi wasn’t meant to be making Gran Turismo. When he began his work on PlayStation’s landmark racing game, little did he know that he was breaking ground on a series that would stand right alongside PlayStation, right up to the latest entry in the series, Gran Turismo Sport.
Back in 1993, over a year before PlayStation was launched in Japan, Yamauchi was a producer for Sony Music Entertainment’s small videogame development team. And one day he met a young business planner called Shuhei Yoshida, who had just joined the PlayStation development team led by Ken Kutaragi.
Greetings Gran Turismo fans! Now that we are in the final countdown to the launch of GT Sport, we thought there was no better way to show our appreciation then by giving the PS community a head start on their racing journey. We are excited to announce a free GT Sport 4-day demo, available via PlayStation Store from October 9th through October 12th.
PS Plus members will be able to pre-load the demo starting from October 7th at 8:00am PT, with access to the game on October 9th, at 12:00am PT. For everyone else, download and access to the demo starts October 9th at 6:00pm PT. The demo officially ends October 12th at 8:00am PT.
You won’t want to miss this limited time demo, as your earned in-game credit (up to $1MM) and unlocked vehicles are transferable to the full game when it launches October 17th.
With the launch of Gran Turismo Sport just around the corner on October 17, there’s a lot of exciting information to share about the new game. We wanted to provide a roundup of some of the announcements that you may have missed, as well as some new details for the dedicated among you.
