SYDNEY, 28 June 2013 – Gran Turismo®6, the latest version of best-selling PlayStation® franchise, is now available for pre-order through select Australian retailers. Set for launch Christmas 2013, only on PlayStation®3 (PS3™), there are two options of the highly anticipated next iteration of ‘the Real Driving Simulator’ available to choose from.
Following on from the announcement of GT6™ for PlayStation 3 in May 2013 at an event celebrating 15 years of Gran Turismo held at Silverstone Circuit, the game’s legendary designer Kazunori Yamauchi released further details and a new trailer at PlayStation’s E3 press conference recently. With over 1,200 cars available at launch (including new FIA GT3 cars), new locations on a grander scale (such as a fascinating location featuring the Gemasolar solar power plant in Spain), new physics, new tyre, suspension and aerodynamic modeling, next generation 3D adaptive tessellation and an HDR dynamic range 50 times greater than GT5™, Gran Turismo 6 is an exciting prospect for the legion of GT fans as well as those new to the franchise.
Fans of the franchise now have a pre-order choice available to them that includes a Standard Edition version (AUD$99.95), and a celebratory ‘Gran Turismo® 6: Anniversary Edition’ ‘Steelbook’ version (AUD$114.95) that comes with one million in-game credits, 20 additional cars with livery and performance enhancement, as well as your own customised paint chips, race suit, helmet, avatar and a copy of Apex II.
