I’ve already written a dozen paragraphs on why releasing Gran Turismo 6 on PlayStation 3 is a smart idea for Sony – you can read them here – but tonight US retailer NewEgg (who don’t actually sell eggs, in any condition) have listed the game for pre-order.
It’s out of stock. Discontinued. Never coming back.
But it’s there – look – and it’s down for the 28th of November. That’s right about when the PlayStation 4 should be making its way towards (at least one set of) shelves, you’ll note.
Sony’s Michael Denny started all this. It’s all his fault. “Look at the games coming out on the PlayStation 3 like The Last of Us, Beyond: Two Souls, GT6, and then on the third-party side of things another fantastic Assassin’s Creed, GTA,” he said in a recent interview.
So, there you have it. Hardly 100% concrete proof, but at least one retailer is sticking their neck out and saying “this is when we think Gran Turismo 6 will appear” and that’s good enough for me.
