Polyphony Digital

It’s well known that game development is often a job that requires long work days, and sleepless nights. Despite this, Gran Turismo developer Polyphony Digital has a reputation of being one of the most dedicated gaming studios. Their quest for realism in simulation, and their incredible attention of detail, has led to the studio seeming larger than life at times.

That reputation is exactly why the latest video posted by PlayStation is so cool. Members of the PlayStation Blog team went to Japan in order to see the studio for themselves. The video tour they recorded gives a glimpse into the studio’s legendary work ethic, and you get to see Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi guide them around.

Check out the four minute video below:

If you haven’t already, make sure to check out our hands-on E3 2017 preview. Our own Paulmichael Contreras had this to say about the upcoming racing title:

Gran Turismo Sport is a no-holds-barred racing simulator. Now, sure, we were playing in ideal settings, in a cockpit setup that your average gamer won’t be able to replicate. But Gran Turismo is fun to any racing fan, regardless as to how they are playing. Running with all of today’s latest graphical bells and whistles, and then some – 4K, HDR, 60 frames per second, extended color gamut – it’s going to be a hard game to beat on a technical front. Polyphony Digital is poised to give games like Forza Motorsport 7 a run for their money, if Gran Turismo Sport does indeed launch in Fall 2017 as currently scheduled.
