Sony exec says Gran Turismo 6 is a PS3 game

But will it also launch on PS4?

A senior Sony executive has said Gran Turismo 6 is a PlayStation 3 game.

In a conversation about the relevance of the PS3 now that the PlayStation 4 has been announced, Sony's Computer Entertainment Europe senior vice president Michael Denny told Silicon Republic: "Look at the games coming out on the PlayStation 3 like The Last of Us, Beyond: Two Souls, GT6 and then on the third-party side of things another fantastic Assassin's Creed, GTA."

Last week Sony announced the PS4 for release "holiday 2013". This led many to assume that the next game in the simulation racer series from Polyphony Digital would launch for that console.

But Denny's quotes suggest otherwise.

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe issued Eurogamer the following statement on Gran Turismo 6 and Denny's comments:

"In 2010, Kazunori Yamauchi confirmed that Polyphony Digital had commenced development for Gran Turismo 6. We look forward to sharing further details on this title in the near future."

So, if GT6 is set for release on PS3, it's surely out at some point this year. But will it also launch on PS4 at a later date?
