Gran Turismo Sport’s Car Models Will be Unmatched Anywhere In The World, Says Polyphony CEO

“This really is the best data that you’ll find anywhere in the world.”

Gran Turismo is about to make its next gen debut later this year with Gran Turismo Sport, the very first PS4 game in the series, as well as the first title to go for a potential eSports focus. A lot has been said about the visual quality of the game- in contrast to previous Gran Turismo titles, reception to Gran Turismo Sport‘s graphics has been mixed, though it has certainly improved over time.

However, Kazunori Yamauchi, CEO of developer Polyphony Digital, told IGN that he truly thinks that the car models in the game will be unmatched- that they will, in fact, be so good that they will still be used in the next PlayStation.

“The models that we use for Gran Turismo Sport now, these models will probably support generations of consoles beyond the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 4 Pro,” Yamauchi said.

“This level of data will probably carry us for the next 10 years or so, I think, because the level of precision of these models is unmatched anywhere in the world right now. The only models that are higher in quality to what we have here would be the CAD models coming straight from the manufacturers, which cannot be rendered in real-time, obviously.

“For models that can be rendered in real-time, this really is the best data that you’ll find anywhere in the world.”

Those are bold words- although, of course, Yamauchi has always been outspoken. Hopefully, the final game is all that he is building it up to be. Gran Turismo was once the premier racing sim franchise- right now it has a lot of ground to cover before fans are willing to give it the benefit of the doubt again.

  • Nelson Tutorials

    Does this guy know that FORZA exists.. probably not.

    • Agent_Blade

      You are so delusional.

    • Tomaterrrx

      The car models in forza won’t match up to GTSport

    • zcar_driver

      Mabey not, but it will be a better game

    • Tomaterrrx

      We’ll have to wait and see

    • Ray Stantz

      Both games have great looking models…this guy can say what he wants he is the ceo of course hes gonna talk smack,,,proving it is an all together diff thing. From what ive seen the models in both games look the same. Overall Forza 7 is a much better looking game. GT has great models..but the grass, trees, ground all look vapid and flat…no dynamic time or weather either…sound sucks too. IMO.

    • Tomaterrrx

      I think GT sport looks fine in all areas. No doubt forza is another awesome looking game. Anyway, this probably isn’t the final build so there is still room for improvement (there won’t be much improvement since the release date is pretty close)

    • Ray Stantz

      Forza has better effects, dynamic weather, and is native 4K…GT Sport is 1800p…upscaled lol. Looks aside…Forza 7 has more cars…about 600 more, more locations, more configs, realistic damage, dynamic weather…etc etc..GT Sport is like Forza MS 6 lite lol.

    • Tomaterrrx

      Yeah I was just talking about the car models. The effects and stuff might be better and obviously native 4k is a big help.

    • Ray Stantz

      Yeah GT has always had top of the line car modeling


    Xbox One X Forza 7 native 4K + 4K textures 60fps
    PS4 PRO GT Sport checkerboard rendering 1600p 60fps no 4K textures

    Nuff said

    • Eliezer Barreto

      Sorry for you but GT sports is 4k chreckboard rendering, is really 3200 x 1800p not 1600p

    • kma99
    • greatnessIsaLIE

      Dude the fact that it uses checkerboarding means that it’s not 4k. It’s upscaled to 4k but is not naturally 4k.

      This is true..
      GT Sport is not native 4k,but fake 4k via checkerboard technique.

    • Eliezer Barreto

      GT Sport will apparently support 4K@60FPS through the Checkerboard Rendering technique when played on the upcoming PlayStation 4 Pro console. This was confirmed in today’s ‘Future of Play’ London event, with series creator Kazunori Yamauchi himself showing the following slide on the stage.

      This other image shared on Twitter confirms that GT Sport will also support HDR and PlayStation VR, thus making the game a perfect demonstration of all the latest technologies released by Sony this year. This makes perfect sense, considering that Gran Turismo is one of the biggest first party IPs even with the decline in sales registered by Gran Turismo 6.

      According to Adam Mathew (an editor of the Australian Official PlayStation Magazine who shared the first image on Twitter), GT Sport is particularly impressive when HDR enabled with a “night and day” kind of difference. He also shared that the game will support up to 10,000 nits of luminance, which is the very top of the High Dynamic Range spec. Unfortunately, there aren’t any TVs that support 10,000 nits yet, but there will be in the future.

    • Poseidon team

      All that PR blablabla. Still fake 4K, no real 4K textures, terribly sound, and even 2D trees.

    • bardock5151

      Too bad it fails graphically in every other department, ‘ooh peak brightness’. Fails in physics. And fails in content.

    • Mr Xrat

      Where Sh*tza is a failure in every possible metric. Even COD does something different once in a while.

    • bardock5151

      So if Forza fails then GT Sport must be well under Need for Speed, probably even lower than The Crew.

    • Mr Xrat

      It’s worse for Sh*tza, lil’ Xgimp. It’s irrelevant. 🙂

    • Fweds

      He also confirmed .

      Gran Turismo Sport will NOT feature dynamic time-lapsing or weather. Lol.

      “We opted to not have the transitions in the race this time in order to raise the framerate and the quality of the image during the race”

      So it’s a cut down arcade racer, It also has cardboard cut out trees and will likely come with the hundreds of bugs.

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      It won’t have dynamic weather or lighting effects. Gt sport will comprise a lot in order to checkerboard up to 4k.

    • Reclaimer13

      That’s from an old article. GT Sport runs at 1600×1800 checkerboarded to 1800p then upscaled to 4k by conventional methods according to DF

      Forza 7 – 8,294,400 pixels
      GT Sport – 2,880,000 pixels
      288% more pixels in Forza 7

      Forza 7 – 700+ cars
      GT Sport – 140 cars

      Forza 7 – 30+ tracks
      GT Sport – 15 tracks

      Forza 7 – 24 cars on track
      GT Sport – 20 cars on track

      Forza 7 – dynamic weather
      GT Sport – no dynamic weather

      Forza 7 – dynamic time of day
      GT Sport – none, baked-in light source

    • Mr Xrat

      Sh*tza 360 port
      GTS actually looks like a current gen game

      Nuff said, Kirk.

    • Fweds

      GTS ,. cardboard cutout trees, hardly any crowds that move

      Kazunori Yamauchi has confirmed that Gran Turismo Sport will NOT feature dynamic time-lapsing or weather. Lol.

      “We opted to not have the transitions in the race this time in order to raise the framerate and the quality of the image during the race”

      So it’s a cutdown arcade racer that will also likely come with the added bonus of hundreds of bugs that most of this series has seen.

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      Take a look at those ps2 trees on GT sport. No weather, or time lapse yeah even ps2 GT games had weather. And you say current gen.
      This game would be better at 1080p. They are sacrificing too much just to do fake 4k.
      This should be a driving game not the best looking.

    • Starman

      And only 30 fps ………

  • Fweds

    It must be true because Anthem was running just as good as the Xbox1X as proven on the Playstation channel, Oh wait !

    • Mr Xrat

      Xgimps should be worried that EA don’t think Anthem will be different enough to make a different trailer for.

    • Fweds

      Translation of “MrXrat” AKA “Revolver ocelot” post…

      Wahhh ah Wahhh, my PS Protato is underpowered, I know I will use my Upvote Bot and give myself 10 fake ghost Upvotes that will show em.

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      The truth is that a ps4 pro version of Anthem doesn’t exist right now. We’re still 2 years out from getting that game. I would imagine that only an early pc and Xbox1x version exist.

  • Poseidon team

    The models are as good as the vacuum cleaner sound from every car in GT Sport.

    Or perhaps as good as the 2D trees? LMAO.

    • XterminatorbotMK1

      You do realize Forza has 2D trees as well, right? Forza also uses 2D crowds while GT Sport uses 3D models.

      GT Sport seems to have the better visuals and if beta gameplay footage is an inticator it seems to recreate real life tracks more accurately than Forza as well.

      GT has been the better sim. Forza is more casualized.

  • Luke Skywalker

    kanunori, your words will be put to the test soon enough

  • Ocelot forgot his meds
    • Troy Marcel

      That’s a massive difference, GT just looks so clinical, it doesn’t have the drama that Forza has.

    • Mr Xrat

      “I-it just f-feels right”

      Find a better excuse, slaphead.

  • Triton

    GT went boring after GT4.

  • bardock5151

    Lol. Even PC2 is better.

  • Wei Feng

    Do the sirs know about project cars 2?

    • Troy Marcel

      I think they are living in a bubble

  • Mr Xrat

    This and PC2 makes Sh*tza an irrelevance. I feel bad for Xgimps, their also-ran annualized racer they think is “irresistable” only elicits yawns.

    • Troy Marcel

      You try so hard and yet you fail everytime.

    • greatnessIsaLIE

      Mr Xrat……the beta for this game was disappointing.
      The Gtsport feels terrible.
      My ps4 pro wouldn’t allow my steering wheel to work but it felt nothing like the old ones and I didn’t like the new feel with a controller. Sorry I hate to say but forza is still better.
      I’ll give gt another chance when it launches.

    • zcar_driver

      GT. been irrelevant for years.

  • Starman

    Aaaaaaa ha ha ha … best joke I’ve heard all year ….
