Just ahead of the world-famous 24 Hours of Le Mans race on June 16, we’re pleased to add the event’s Circuit de la Sarthe to GT Sport in the new 1.19 update that will be available later tonight. Known for its long periods driven under full throttle and the demanding stress it puts on both cars’ and drivers’ braking abilities – this will provide a true test of skill for even our most dedicated players.
We’re proud to reveal our March update for Gran Turismo Sport: Patch 1.15, available today. We’ve been paying close attention to your feedback, and have added an unmissable collection of new cars, events and a brand new VR Time Trial mode we hope you’ll love. You’ll be able to download and play from tonight, March 28th at 7:00pm Pacific.
As always, you can find the full patch notes at Gran-Turismo.com; and be sure to stay tuned to PlayStation.Blog for the first word on more upcoming GT content.
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.
