The day after the unveiling of GT Sport, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe and Polyphony Digital hosted a fan event in London, where Kazunori Yamauchi himself repeated the presentation he did to the press the day before.
If you want to see that full presentation, and hear about the game directly from the man himself (and from his legendary translator), you now can, courtesy of YouTube user ::: HammerStudiosGaming :::.
Interestingly, Yamauchi-san also answered a few questions from the fans, giving further info about the game. You can also find a summary of that below.
- GT Sport won’t support PS3 racing wheel, as new hardware is required for PS4 compatibility.
- At the moment TVR cars aren’t going to be included in the game, as Polyphony couldn’t find out who has the rights to the cars, since the company was recently sold.
- According to Kazunori Yamauchi it’s difficult to answer whether this is the best Gran Turismo that it could ever be, since different people enjoy different things, but this is the happiest he has been about a game of the series since the first Gran Turismo.
- Yamauchi-san would love to have Porsche cars in the game, and Polyphony is ready and willing to include them whenever Porsche sees fit.
- The game will have damage, even if to Yamauchi-san himself it’s not as important as the driving itself.
- The inclusion of more FIA licensed racing cars is a possibility for the future.
- No DLC are currently confirmed, but it’s possible, and Yamauchi-san would like to see them in both free and paid form.
- As far as Kazunori Yamauchi is concerned, GT Sport could have been called Gran Turismo 7, due to the depth of features it includes. The revival of some classic Gran Turismo tracks is a possibility.
- Yamauchi-san has been asked about a lot a new Tourist Trophy game or any kind of appearance for motorbikes in Polyphony’s games, and that’s not outside the realm of possibility, but at the moment he can’t say, because the studio is focusing on GT SPort.
But now, without further ado, you can watch the presentation below.
