    GRAN TURISMO 7 developer Polyphony Digital says it will not make any “concessions” on its upcoming PS5 exclusive game.

    The studio’s CEO Kazunori Yamauchi spoke about the company’s approach to the game’s development during an appearance at the FIA Gran Turismo Championships 2020.

    He stated that he and his team want to “deliver the best to everyone”, and that they are “applying an incredible amount of attention” to the finer details of the forthcoming title.

    He said: “We always pursue the best at Polyphony Digital.

    “We don’t want to make concessions on anything. We want to deliver the best to everyone. And this is no longer just my thinking, but it’s the mindset of all 200 or so staff at our company.”

    It means gamers can now play top titles like Cyberpunk 2077 and Assassin's Creed Valhalla for a small monthly fee.

      PS5 USERS PLAYING “WORSE” PS4 GAMES BY ACCIDENT

      A bizarre bug means Sony's next-gen console doesn't make it clear whether you're playing the PS4 or PS5 variants of some of your favourite titles.

      The high-powered machine, which has already hit shelves in the US and is out in the UK on Thursday, can play games from both consoles.

      However, for games available on both PS4 and PS5, it can be tricky to figure out whether you're playing the old or next gen version.

      That's because only one icon for each game appears on the console's dashboard, meaning there's no way to tell the difference between them.

      BURGERED!

      Crooks are switching PlayStation 5s for home grills in two shock delivery scams.

      The items’ similar weight mean they fool scanners checking boxes at warehouses.

      One con sees criminals, feared to be parcel couriers, substitute a £42 George Foreman Large Fit Grill for the £449 console which is kept and sold at vast profit.

      Hundreds of gamers have reported opening parcels to find a grill.

      It is just 2lbs lighter than the PS5.

      Crooks have also used a £75 Pro Breeze air fryer in the swap.

      An Amazon insider said: “Loads of boxes have been returned to us from customers saying their PS5 never arrived.

      “Many have excitedly opened the box to find a deep-fat fryer or grill.

      “Amazon has replaced a lot but there are still probably tens of thousands of unopened parcels out there.

      “A lot of people could be about to get a nasty shock on Christmas Day.”
