PS5 may already have superior hand on Xbox Scarlett, as Sony confirms plans to release a PlayStation power plant on the new console.
With the next gene console war already starting to gain momentum, Sony may just have delivered a killing blow to Microsoft.
In a fascinating interview with GT Planet, Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi recently spoke about the future of the racing series.
Not only would Yamauchi confirm that the next entry of the popular racing sim was in development, but he would also give the fans a taste of what to expect.
"I believe that in races themselves and physics, GT Sport has really reached the best place we have ever achieved – we are in a very good place," he explains.
"On the other hand, we are obviously working on the next Gran Turismo already, and the sports world we have achieved through GT Sport is something I have always imagined to be the Gran Turismo future. We were able to fix it now."
According to Yamauchi, the new game will look to previous releases for inspiration and can also support VR.
"I think the next title we are going to create will be a combination of the past, present and future ̵
"The first thing that will be affected by more power is VR," he continues.
"I don't think there is anything else that requires so much processing power. I really like VR; I am one to believe in the possibilities of it, and it is perfect for a driving game.
"VR is something that really depends on the development of the GPU power and the hardware for it, just like a display device. Something where you can never have enough computing power, it will always be that hardware limitation, and that limit will never be high enough for us!
"It will obviously gradually improve over time and we will make sure to follow it. "
Based on Yamauchi's comments, it looks like the next consensus war will kick with a joint between Forza and Gran Turismo.
It was recently revealed that PS5
The Fast (or non-existent) charging time is possible thanks to the specialized solid state device, which will make a huge difference in processing speeds.
In Spider-Man on a PS4 Pro, for example, it can take up to 15 seconds for fast travel from One place for another. PS5, on the other hand, will be able to handle the same task in less than a second.
Worlds can also be done at much higher speeds, which should inject more pace into play.
This will come in especially handy for competition games, where players whiz around courses at incredible speed.
