The PS5 may already have the upper hand over the Xbox Scarlett as Sony confirms plans to release a PlayStation powerhouse on the new console.
With the next-generation console wars already gaining momentum, Sony may just have just begun a deadly blow to Microsoft.
In a fascinating interview with GT Planet, Gran Turismo inventor Kazunori Yamauchi spoke recently about the future of the racing series.
Yamauchi would not only confirm that the next entry in the popular racing simulation was in development, but he also gave the fans a taste of what to expect.
"I think in terms of race and physics GT Sport has really reached the best place we've ever achieved – we're in a very good place," he explains.
"On the other hand, obviously we are already working on the next Gran Turismo, and the world of sport that we have achieved through GT Sport, I have always imagined the future of Gran Turismo. We were able to establish that now.
According to Yamauchi, the new game will draw on earlier releases and may also support VR.
"I think the next title we create will be a combination of past, present, and future ̵
" The first thing that gets impacted by more power is VR, "he continues.
" Me Do not think that anything else requires so much computing power. I really like VR; I am one who believes in the possibilities and it is very well suited for a driving game.
"VR is something that really depends on the evolution of GPU performance and hardware, and even on display devices, it's something you can never have enough computing power, there will always be that hardware limit, and so on this limit will never be high enough for us!
"Obviously this will gradually improve over time and we will see to it.
Based on Yamauchi's comments, it looks like the next generation console wars will begin with a clash between Forza and Gran Turismo.
It has recently been announced that the PS5 supports 8K resolution, raytracing, and much faster load times.
Fast (or non-existent) load times are possible thanks to the special solid-state drive, which provides tremendous performance difference from processing speed.
In Spider-Man on a PS4 Pro, for example, can take more than 15 seconds to move quickly from one location to another, but on the other hand, the PS5 can do the same job in less than a second.
This will be more useful for racing games where the games are played at higher speeds, which should give the games more pace.
