Inside Gran Turismo Sport studio Polyphony Digital, a developer driven to perfection

Take a guided tour of the world-renowned Polyphony Digital with Founder Kazunori Yamauchi

Earlier this year, our team had the great pleasure and honour of touring the offices of Polyphony Digital as the developers continued their tireless work on Gran Turismo Sport. Guided by Studio Founder and Gran Turismo Creator Kazunori Yamauchi, we enjoyed a rare look inside the studio, sampling their passion, expertise and commitment to the world’s premier racing series.

See it all for yourself, from the well-earned wall of accolades to prototype furniture designed to house a steering wheel and pedals. Yamauchi shares his feelings leading into the launch of Gran Turismo Sport and — much to our surprise — treated us to an impromptu piano performance that left the team speechless.

We hope you enjoy this insight into the Polyphony Digital team, recorded on location in Tokyo, Japan and debuted live at E3 2017 last week.

Where is my beta key? KAZ ………………………………………………………….


Same here, never received code so I’ll skip day one and wait sale.

I always find it funny how people throw the “ill skip day one” or “sale” or “second hand” card for something as stupid as not getting into the beta.

Such a pathetic excuse and while trying to throw it in the developers face. Really shows what type of person you are.

I love GT, but i wont buy day 1 because it will be a bit too pricey for me. simple as that.


With a staff of 200 people, coming in 2019.

When is the release date of the game?


Autumn time (that the only thing we know until PD or Sony says otherwise)

Translation: Nutty guy delays game yet again because he cannot see where the line is.

Telling us summer and then skipping out sucks.

I want a new Burnout. Fun racing games. FUN!


I’m only getting this because it supports VR.

Will it be compatible with the Thrustmaster T150?
