Speaking exclusively to games™ in an in-depth interview feature, Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi has praised the PlayStation 4 and assured fans that they can expect a much better final product than Polyphony was able to deliver on the more challenging PS3 hardware.

Yamauchi speaks to journalists at Silverstone (GTA)“Everything will be running naturally,” Yamauchi assured us. “PS3 was much, much more difficult. The high quality of data that we have being rendered on the PS4 I think is going to make an incredible difference.”

He went on to reveal a little more of his vision for how the first Gran Turismo on PS4 will feel.

“For GT7, myself and my staff have a clear vision: to do everything we couldn’t do in GT6,” Yamauchi revealed. “We want to make it very Gran Turismo. By that I mean it’s going to be a game that matches the very era that we live in, in 2015 or 2016.”
