New developer diary video showcases exclusive PlayStation 5 features
In other news, a new Gran Turismo 7 developer diary has been released, which can be viewed below. In the video, Polyphony Digital CEO Kazunori Yamauchi reveals some of the exclusive features that PlayStation 5 players will benefit from while playing the game.

Gran Turismo 7 takes advantage of the DualSense controller’s adaptive triggers, which are used to recreate as close as possible the feel of car breaks.

Also, Yamauchi emphasizes the fact that 4K, 60fps, and HDR contribute to the realism of the game: “When I get to drive on the tracks, I really feel like the realism has exceeded a certain level, and that’s always very striking. The kind of natural feeling that we’ve been trying to achieve in Gran Turismo from the start.

Don’t forget that Gran Turismo 7 is set for release for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 on March 4, 2022. Obviously, only the PlayStation 5 version will take advantage of the feature showcased in the recently released developer diary. On the bright side, if you can’t get a PlayStation 5 until Gran Turismo 7 releases next year, you can always upgrade your PlayStation 4 version for a $10 fee when you manage to get your hands on one.
