And so the battle begins again between Forza Motorsport and Gran Turismo. There’s not much to say as yet due to the fact that neither of the games has actually launched yet. Both games were on show at E3 this year. The big difference between the two at the moment is Gran Turismo 5 is on the Current generation console of the PS3, whereas Forza Motorsport 5 is on the more powerful Xbox One.
Visually I have to say that Forza 5 has the edge currently but Gran Turismo has kind of brought a knife to a gunfight by staying on the PS3, Kazunori Yamauchi creator of Gran Turismo 6 has said: “I think a PS4 version will appear naturally. We won’t keep you waiting too long, but it won’t be too soon either.” Sounds to me that it won’t be at launch then, unlike Forza Motorsport 5, which will be available with the launch of the Xbox One.
Whatever console people will choose will be the game they choose, PS3/4 you’ll get Gran Turismo 6, Xbox One you’ll get Forza 5. There really is not contest between these two brilliant looking games as they are both on different platforms. Yes you can compare them because they are both racing simulation games. But if you have an Xbox One your not going to buy Gran Turismo 6 and vice versa.
