posted up a video today in honor of celebrating 15 years Of Gran Turismo on Sony video gaming platforms.
To quote: A little over 15 years ago, what was then a small Japanese studio (headed up by Kazunori Yamauchi) embarked upon on a journey that would enrich the lives of many millions of gamers. The journey that the team undertook set new benchmarks in graphics, game physics and sheer entertainment factor.
That studio eventually became known as Polyphony Digital, and the brand they created was - of course - Gran Turismo.
15 years after that seminal moment, and after who knows how many billions of miles driven collectively by Gran Turismo gamers all over the world, I am very pleased to announce a special Gran Turismo 15th Anniversary Event taking place May 15th at Silverstone Race Circuit, England.
The event will be a celebration of all that Gran Turismo has come to represent to a community of millions all over the world, and will involve many of the car manufacturers who have been part of that incredible 15 year journey.
At the event, Kazunori Yamauchi will also be making some exciting announcements about the future of the brand. Activities will be covered live right here, at [Register or Login to view links]
