Gran Turismo 7 PS4 vs PS5: Features, graphics, cars, tracks, price, & more!
GT7 will be with us soon, let’s take a look at the PlayStation 4 and PS5 comparison now!
With Gran Turismo 7 now in a set position on the horizon, we’re starting to wrap our heads around the differences between PS4 and PS5. GT7 was originally branded as a PS5 exclusive, but has since been confirmed for a PS4 release as well.
With the next-gen and last-gen consoles boasting very different hardware, it’s likely that we will see some differences between the two versions of the game. So, let’s take a look at Gran Turismo 7 on PS4 and PS5 now!
One of the major differences between the two according to Kazunori Yamauchi is the loading times. Those with the next-gen PS5 will benefit from the SSD in the latest console. The loading times are so fast that they’re virtually non-existent!
Otherwise, the features on both versions of the game will be much the same, as the team has done a brilliant job of ensuring a similar gameplay experience.
This is good for players who haven’t yet managed to get their hands on a PS5. This means the game will have the same number of cars and tracks regardless of your platform.
Once again, there are many hardware differences between the consoles, so the graphics won’t quite match in visual fidelity.
Thankfully, there are many ways of ensuring that the framerate and the overall gameplay experience are roughly similar on PS4 and PS5.
This is due to the scalability of the title, with a PS4 and PS5 version being the same quality according to Yamauchi. We hope this is reflected in the two versions of the game, and have all faith in Polyphony Digital to do so! The PS4 version also won’t have ray tracing available.
Yamauchi was also asked about the possibility of 8K resolution or 120Hz refresh rates, but he didn’t comment on either of these.
Excitingly, we know that the game will be with us on March 4th, 2022. This gives us just over two months to get our hands-on on a PS5 so we can enjoy the game to its fullest.
This release date came in the way of a trailer that we saw during the PlayStation Showcase. We also got a look at a host of awesome footage.
Today we even got an extra look at a surprise vehicle coming to GT7 from Porsche, but it remains to be seen what that is!
