43w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton announced that Gran Turismo 6 is officially out on PS3 today, with details from Kazunori on Lunar Racing.

To quote: Today, Gran Turismo 6 takes to the track. In keeping with the series' MO, Polyphony Digital has once again created an incredibly sophisticated and convincing racing simulation, which proudly wears the developer's unconditional love for the automobile on its sleeve.

Hands up if you saw that coming?





"We had been working for a while on simulating the stars properly in the game, and the moon was being recreated very accurately. While we were working on that, the idea just came out of the blue," recalled Polyphony president and series creator Kazunori Yamauchi, when we caught up with him at the game's launch in Ronda, Spain, earlier this week.

191w ago - Today Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared a video interview with Kaz Hirai on the NGP - Next Generation Portable from Sony.

To quote: The day we announced the Next Generation Portable, or NGP, was quite an eventful one.

You might have followed the live blog, read the message on the Blog from SCEA CEO Jack Tretton, seen the topics trending on Twitter (6 out of 10 worldwide at one point!), or read the hands-on impressions.

At the very end of the day, I had a chance to catch up with Kazuo Hirai, President and Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, Inc.





While I knew I'd be unable to gather any more details than what was announced earlier in the day, I was curious about the broader aspects of the news: Why announce NGP now? Where does it fit into the PlayStation console life cycle philosophy?

How did publishing partners like [Register or Login to view links] and [Register or Login to view links] get involved in the announcement? I hope you enjoy hearing these answers in detail directly from Mr. Hirai.
