Gran Turismo Sport not fully playable in VR, will have a specific 'VR Tour' mode

Kevin Dooley On November 3, 2016

I believe it's fair to say that GT Sport is perhaps not the most anticipated Gran Turismo entry in the long-running series.

Indeed it may turn out to have a somewhat niche appeal with its heavy eSports focus. However one trick it does have up its sleeve is the PSVR compatibility which could prove to be its biggest selling point.

However, even the PSVR compatibility is coming under question now as Gran Turismo's top man Kazunori Yamauchi has said to VideoGamer that GT Sport will not be fully playable in virtual reality and will instead have a specific "VR Tour" mode.


No details have been shared but seeing as the VR experience will be separate to the main game leads me to believe that it may well be a small portion of the full title which will be very disappointing indeed.

We'll keep you updated as soon as we know more.
