It appears that when Sony Europe’s Michael Denny let info on Gran Turismo slip, it wasn’t some elaborate ruse.
IGN has reported on a listing for the game on US retailer Newegg’s site. The listing is still on their site, but does say that the item has been both “discontinued” and is “out of stock”. The one important takeaway from this is that the online retailer has Gran Turismo 6 down as a PlayStation 3 title.
With a release date yet to be announced, we’ve heard very little on Gran Turismo 6 since we found out that development had begun back in 2010. DriveClub seems to have taken the position of next-gen racer – as seen at the PS4 event, so the likelihood of Gran Turismo 6 being one of the PS3’s last hurrahs makes sense.
