Sony has jumped in the virtual reality market with its PlayStation VR and many developers have announced PSVR support for their games. Developer Polyphony Digital also announced PSVR support for their upcoming Gran Turismo Sport, but the game will not have full VR compatibility.
According to Videogamer, Polyphony Digital President Kazanori Yamauchi has confirmed that Gran Turismo Sport will not be fully playable in VR and will have VR Tour game mode instead. This means that players will probably not be able to race with the VR headset plugged in.
