"Gran Turismo 6" will see its PS3 release date this upcoming holiday season. A demo for "Gran Turismo 6" will be made available this July.

Features in "Gran Turismo 6" include more than 1,200 cars -- 200 more than "Gran Turismo 5" could boast. More cars will be made available after the game is released, presumable via DLC. There will be 33 locations and 71 course layouts, with 19 of the latter being brand new. A new course maker will also be included.

Sony's press release also makes reference to "expanded connectivity with other devices such as smart phones and tablets and increased social and community functions." Additional "Gran Turismo 6" details will be revealed during E3 and Gamescom.
