I have three bits of the best news you will hear all day. First: its Friday! Second: Gran Turismo 6 comes out today! Third: You won’t need to buy a next-gen console to play it (unless the newest console you own is a PS2)! All awesome right?
Yes, its a little hard to believe its happened so quickly, especially considering how long development on Gran Turismo 5 took but Gran Turismo 6 is finally here! As long as you have a Playstation 3 and 60 bucks you can run out to the store right now and go pick up your copy.
Once you place the game in your system you will be greeted by possibly the best racing game intro I have ever seen. It starts off with a tribute to Ayrton Senna which includes clips of what appear to be interviews with Ayrton’s family members which is a huge deal. Even the official SENNA documentary didn’t go quite that deep. From there comes a beautiful cinematic love letter to the process of automotive design. You will just have to watch to see what I am talking about. Finally in the last few seconds we get a tease of what looks like the ability to play as Aryton Senna in the game! Could this be why he is noticeably absent in F1 2013 classic edition? Who knows! I would have loved to review this game so I could tell you, but I am not on Sony’s “Cool kids” list so alas I was not sent a copy. What I do know is that if you aren’t sold on Gran Turismo 6 yet, this flick just might do it. So scroll down, watch, and enjoy!
