Sony Exec: PS4 Slim Is Speculation, Gran Turismo Is An Important Franchise for PlayStation

Atindriya Bose on future PlayStation offerings.

If recent history is anything to go by, Sony has always launched multiple SKUs of their PlayStation consoles. Right from the days of PlayStation One to the PlayStation 3, the Tokyo based company has launched slimmer versions of their consoles. Obviously, one would expect the trend to follow with the PlayStation 4.

However it seems that players who are expecting Sony to announce a slimmer version  of the PlayStation 4 should keep their hopes in check. Speaking to India’s PlayStation boss, Atindriya Bose, GamingBolt asked whether a slimmer version of the PS4 is due anytime soon.

“That’s too speculative in nature. As of right now we are going to focus on the 1TB launch,” Bose stated to GamingBolt. So it seems that Sony are currently focusing on making the 1TB version as successful as they can and it makes sense given the kind of sales numbers they are doing these days. So a slimmer PS4 version probably makes no sense at this point.

We also ask Bose about Gran Turismo 7 on the PlayStation 4 and although he declined to comment on the same, he acknowledged that the franchise is important to PlayStation.

“There are certain genres that does very well and there are certain titles that do well. But if I have to pick up a few that perhaps every player talks about you have the Gran Turismo and FIFA series. These are the must haves for anyone who is jumping into any of the console formats. So yes, Gran Turismo is a very important title. We have seen fantastic success with the last bundle we did (Gran Turismo 6) but beyond that I don’t think I can comment on its future.”

It’s important to note that Bose’s comments are from an Indian market perspective but we previously reported that Yamauchi is working on the next entry in the famed racing series but Sony has yet to acknowledge its existence. So hopefully we will see it on the PS4 at some point in the future.

      I would much rather wait for quality, than be flooded in a quantity of sh*t though.

    • simmons360

      Yeah that is true. Don’t want any broken games shipped.

    • XbotMK1

      It’s not just about broken buggy games, but it’s about quality of content for the $60 price tag.

      GTFO….. You dont even know what your talking about. Go play Forza Motorsport then try Horizon and tell me if they are anything alike. They are 2 different series made every 2 yrs.. Dummy…

    • Pagey112

      And then tell me after they did a horizon game did they not make 2 more forza motorsports games?

  • XbotMK1

    Meanwhile, Microsoft is ripping off customers with yearly rehashed Forza trash, with inferior weather effects, less realistic driving, less cars, less tracks, and you can’t even use weather effects in every track.

    What makes Xbox and Microsoft so pathetic is that Forza is a rip off of Gran Turismo and an inferior as well.

      lol So true

    Sony hand been running sh4t scared of Forza sries for years.

    • XbotMK1

      Not really. Actually it’s the opposite. Microsoft is using “3D Puddles” to market Forza. That is because they’re desperate and they have nothing new to talk about in Forza.

      Forza is overrated. People have been defending it and shilling for it for years. It’s time to stop trolling and defending Microsoft’s overhyped garbage. The truth is that Forza is just a milked half-@ssed piece of sh*t that Microsoft made as a place holder for their box. Time to let Forza die. It deserves it anyway.

      You obviously don’t realize that Sony won’t list the “newer” games that they may announce in their pre conference game listings. Did Sony list The Last Guardian, Horizon Zero Dawn, or Final Fantasy 7 Remake in their pre E3 game listings? No, you won’t find out what games they will reveal until their TGS conference. Nice try though.

    • Shi’a at

      They didnt because The Last Guardian and FF7 ARENT coming out anytime soon. Sony needed to show those games along with Shenmue to keep Sony gamers interested and talking… Sony knew they had NOTHING for E3 and showed you a bunch of crap. They won if you believed it…

    • Shi’a at

      Damn that is pretty crappy. Im glad I own both xbox one and ps4. Xbox One has been carrying the weight this entire gen so far. 2 games, Bloodborne and Until Dawn(I actually like this game a lot) are all PS4 has had… Uncharted isnt coming out until 2016. . Makes me wonder why the ps4 is in such a lead..

  • Andy Vecchi
