“Gran Turismo Sport” is Sony’s long-running “Gran Turismo” game’s PlayStation 4 debut. The first “GT” was released in 1997 on the PlayStation 1, and 20 years later, “Gran Turismo” is still going strong, holding on to its title as “the real driving simulator.”

Polyphony Digital develops the “Gran Turismo” games, and the studio is full of staff who love cars. Not only has Polyphony worked with Nissan on the GT-R car’s interface system, but studio honcho Kazunori Yamauchi races cars in real life. That love and realism is evident in all of the “Gran Turismo” games.
