Gran Turismo Sport Could Run At 8K, “Over-Specced For PS4 Pro”

Polyphony Digital CEO says it takes “6 months to create a single car.”

Posted By | On 01st, Aug. 2017 Under News

Polyphony Digital’s Gran Turismo Sport has been in development for quite a while. In fact, it was first confirmed to be in development since 2013, the same year that Gran Turismo 6 on the PS3 released.

Since then, the development team has been working hard to intricately capture every single car, ensuring it’s as realistic as possible. In fact, Polyphony CEO Kazunori Yamauchi was telling Finder how the game is actually over-specced for PS4 PS4 Pro.

Yamauchi also dropped another interesting tidbit when he said, “It takes six months to create a single car. It’s over-specced for PS4 Pro. So we are building for future versions of the console rather than the one we see today”.

When asked to clarify his comment, Yamauchi noted that, “I think it would be no problem to run it at 8K even.” Of course, there are many things one could infer but the main takeaway is that Gran Turismo Sport is being built for the long haul. If it ever does re-release on a future Sony platform, whether it’s the next PlayStation or another PS4 Pro-like upgrade, then it will still have enough graphical might to showcase.

Gran Turismo Sport releases on October 17th for PS4.

      Oh look, Kirky clings to the Milgrau cancer like a true Xgimp.

      S**tza is a joke. 🙂

  • Poseidon team

    Meanwhile, PS4 Pro runs GT Sports at checkboarding 1600p and then upscaled to 4K. Only with the next PS5 we will finally see true 4K like on Forza 7.

    Perhaps Sony devs should spend months on optimizing their ancient GT engine (and 2D trees) instead on waiting another 5 years when Sony will introduce us to “dynamic” 8K, and pretty much deliver another scam like the PS4 Pro and true 4K.

    PS: Project Cars 2 on PC already runs at 12K. So nothing to see here.

  • Triton

    140 cars = 70 work years then.

  • This Guy

    So they’re forcing Pro owners to download 8k assets for a game running at 1440p?

    • Omar

      No, that’s not how it works at all.

    • This Guy

      So why is such a small under funded dev team wasting so much resources on assets for a non-existent console that we don’t even know that support 8K or not?

    • Omar

      I have no idea. What I do know is that PS4 Pro doesn’t have the memory bandwidth to push native 4K assets let alone anything higher. The system can achieve 4K resolution on some games but the assets are the base PS4 assets in almost any case.

    • This Guy

      Yeah I’m very confused by this statement from the devs as well. I can appreciate future-proofing, but given how long it’s taken for this game to release they should just get the game out. Also this insinuates that the PS5 must be planned for BC with PS4.

    • Mr Xrat

      Maybe you’ll figure out there’s no such thing as a “4K texture” like they’re trying to con you on the Xbollox.

  • Reclaimer13

    That might be true and all but you don’t have to act like that idiot Mr Xrat and his posse of sock accounts to get your point across man.

    • This Guy

      I think it’s his attempt at bringing balance to the troll force. lol.

  • Howie Kearney

    Crazy. Listen, the reality is GT is like an old Heavy weight boxer. Still got a punch but shows its age and takes forever to get ready for a fight and cut weight. It just doesn’t hold the same impact it once did in the industry. several franchises have passed it in many ways.

    • LifeOnMars

      And Forza is the young pretender that never quite made the grade and now past its sell by date.

  • Starman

    AAAAAAAAA ha ha ha ha ja ja ja

    • Mark

      Ja ja ja ja ja. Lol

  • Rami Seb

    It can run at 20k and it’ll still be a garbage game.

  • Mr Xrat

    Looks like Xgimps can’t read. He means the textures are good enough that they’ll run at 8K without looking terrible like S**tza’s 360 textures at 4K do

    • Poseidon team

      The question is: when will Sony deliver true 8K?

      PS4 Pro: fake 4K and more like 1440p
      PS5: fake 8K and more like true 4K
      PS5 Pro: fake 12K and more like 6K
      PS6: a bazillions K and finally true 8K

      Ok, then we must wait another 12 years if they release another console every 4 years before we can use those 8K textures and models. Meanwhile, the game runs unoptimized at 1600p using checkboarding and unstable 60fps. Better spend time improving the actual game and finally upgrade those 2D trees from GT3, isn’t?

      GT Sports has a glorified huge tutorial that they call a “campaign”, that will massively annoy people who will buy this game. Better say out and clear “it’s for online racing only” instead of misleading people on buying this expecting an improved GT6.

      Source for the misleading campaign (and wrongly claiming again 4K and 60fps):

    • Mr Xrat

      “When will Sony deliver true 4K?!?!!!?”

      If the definition of “true [X]K ” is the same as MS’ with its poor textures, underwhelming framerate and massive compromises, probably next gen. Since E3, Xgimps have assured that after a year of trolling checkerboarding is perfectly fine. 🙂

      I think the real question is: When will MS deliver some games? Though considering the fact you losers don’t even realize Tacoma exists I’m not surprised they don’t put in the effort. You don’t play games.

    • Fweds

      The PS Protato is useless for anything other than looking very slightly better than the standard PS4, it simply isn’t worth the money.

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      It’s just damage control dude. They have heard the negative comments about the graphics and lack or standard features like rain or fog.
      If this was really true then why does forza 7 look better?
      It’s obvious the textures you speak of won’t be on display for another 10 years when the ps5 pro gets here. The ps5 will only do 4k which is what is expected. 8k in the next 10 years is a fantasy. This game will never see 8k gt8 will be out by then. I hope.

    • Fweds

      No GT8 the Devs have confirmed no more GT not even a GT7 on PS Protato

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      No wonder they want to make us play this junk for 20 years.

    • Fweds

      Spinoff GTS sport , No Weather, No day/Night cycle, poor backgrounds including cardboard cut out trees, online only.

      And yet it is still going to be sold at FULL PRICE !!!!!!

      So you pay the same for a lot less than what you would of got even on PS3 !!!, now wonder the Devs have confirmed there will not be another full GT game on PS4.

      After seeing Forza 7 running on Xbox1X I expect the Devs decided they can’t compete any longer and called it a day.

    • Mr Xrat

      Find a hole to crawl into so you can make excuses for your 360 textures on your rehash racer there, subhuman.

  • Mr Xrat

    Poor little Kirky’s nightmare continues. 🙂

  • Smart guy

    Looks awful compared to Forza

    • LifeOnMars

      Forza is rubbish on Xbox one , it looks OK on Xbollex

    • Smart guy

      Rubbish?? Lol na guy Forza looks great on any Xbox but yes of course the best on X1X.

    • LifeOnMars

      I really love those jaggies it gives it a retro feel.

  • Ocelot forgot his meds

    Must be why it’s 1800p 42fps on Sony’s Protato with 68 cars, cardboard cut out crowds and trees, no dynamic weather and laughable physics. GT squirt was royally embarrassed by Forza 7 at E3.
