Resisting the temptation to challenge him on the game itself, he told us how the PlayStation 3's hardware was pushed to the very limit while making GT6, but that the next console, the PS4, should make everything easier for the seventh instalment.
"We don't want to take too long on Gran Turismo 7," Kazunori told us. "Best-case scenario? Next year. In GT6 we really had to tune the software 100 per cent to maximise the PS3's architecture, but of course the PS4's hardware is much better, so I think the overall quality of the game across the board will be boosted when you come to play it".
