Gran Turismo's top man and creator Kazunori Yamauchi has recently said that developing the fifth and sixth installments of the Gran Turismo series on the PlayStation 3 console was "a nightmare".

Gran Turismo creator Kazunori Yamauchi Speaking with IGN recently, Yamauchi stated "the conditions for GT6 were really against us, mainly because the PlayStation 3 hardware was a very difficult piece of hardware to develop for, and it caused our development team a lot of stress. So 5 and 6 was really a nightmare for us."

This will of course come as no surprise to most of us as after all the PlayStation 3 has a reputation for being a bit of a tricky platform to develop games for. However it's maybe a little surprising to hear Yamauchi use such a very strong word to describe their development on the last generation console.

Thankfully the PlayStation 4 is a much easier platform to develop on, but as most players know such a fact, expectations for the next Gran Turismo title are high. Despite the backlash from the first unveiling of GT Sport recently, Yamauchi remains confident in his latest creation.

"It really has the level of innovation you haven’t seen since Gran Turismo 1 and we’re having a lot of fun developing it, and we’re discovering a lot of things as we develop it,” said Yamauchi.

GT Sport has a current release date of November 16 and will of course be available exclusively on the PlayStation 4 console. The upcoming racer is expected to support PlayStation VR at launch.
