In other news, what are the preferred cars of the players in games like Gran Turismo Sport? That is a question that should not only be asked out of curiosity, but also out of business interest. The head of Polyphony Digital, Kazunori Yamauchi, has confirmed that from time to time they have passed data regarding the preferences of the players to companies such as Toyota, which seek to find out which models are the most liked by users.
Collecting data is really more difficult than it sounds. For starters, cars at the top of the user interface tend to buy more than cars at the bottom of the menu. It’s not always easy to identify cars that gamers really like. However, we have provided information to car manufacturers, such as Toyota, about how many of a particular type of car have been purchased in our game.
I remind you that Polyphony Digital’s Gran Turismo Sport released on October 17, 2017 for PlayStation 4.
