Shuhei Yoshida, President of Sony’s Worldwide Studios, told IGN that Gran Turismo 6 is not planned for the PS Vita. But wait, does this really surprise anyone? Last I checked, not every single game that comes out on the PlayStation 3 has made its way to the Vita – most don’t. And why would they? Yoshida is impressed by the Vita, (it is a very impressive portable gaming machine) but explains why Gran Turismo 6 won’t be on it:
The PS Vita is a very powerful portable system, but not quite as powerful as PS3. As you can tell looking at GT6, it really is using PS3 to a very high level. So it’s going to be really hard to move GT6 onto PS Vita.
That isn’t the end for a possible Gran Turismo on the PS Vita though. With the PlayStation 4 and Remote Play, there’s still hope for some really great racing simulation on the Vita in the future. Gran Turismo 6 will be available December 6th for the PlayStation 3.
