[EN]: With Sony about to change gears later this year by bringing the PS4 as their newest console, the company is not leaving behind PS3 gamers just yet. Though I’d like to see a PS4 version of this racing franchise, Gran Turismo 6 is coming later this year to the PS3. The series creator, Kazunori Yamauchi, made the announcement during an event celebrating the 15 years of the Gran Turismo franchise. With new cars, new tracks, a GT6 demo coming in July, and a partnership with tire manufacturer Yokohama Rubber and suspension company KW Automotive to work as tech partners in the creation of the game’s physics engine, it sounds like GT6 could be a hit this year.

[ES]: Con Sony a punto de cambiar de marcha a finales de este año al traer el PS4 como su consola más nueva, la empresa no está dejando atrás los jugadores de PS3 todavía. Aunque me gustaría ver una versión PS4 de esta franquicia de carreras, Gran Turismo 6 está llegando a finales de este año para el PS3. El creador de la serie, Kazunori Yamauchi, hizo el anuncio durante un evento para celebrar los 15 años de la franquicia Gran Turismo. Con los nuevos autos, nuevas pistas, una demostración GT6 que viene en julio, y una asociación con el fabricante de neumáticos Yokohama Rubber y una empresa de suspensiones KW Automotive para trabajar como socios de tecnología en la creación de motor físico del juego, parece que GT6 podría ser un éxito este año.
