Polyphony Digital is "aiming for the latest technology" for the inevitable Gran Turismo 6, series chief Kazunori Yamauchi has said.

At the China Joy event in Beijing, Yamauchi said (via Andriasang) work began on GT6 immediately after work on GT5, which launched in November 2010, finished.

On GT6 he added: "We're always aiming for the latest technology and the latest expression." A hint that the simulation racer is speeding towards PlayStation 4, rumoured to be set for a late 2013 launch?

Meanwhile, fans quizzed the developer on the potential for a PS Vita version of Gran Turismo. Yamauchi replied: "If we were to make it, we'd like to make use of the ability to play anywhere and the ability to use 3G at any time."

Apparently Yamauchi will visit the Shanghai Circuit today to see if it's worth featuring in a game.
