The release of Gran Turismo 7 for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 last year was a momentous occasion for gamers on Sony’s platform. Gran Turismo allows PlayStation to add a renowned game to its range of consoles and accessories. Gran Turismo 7 was followed by games like Assetto Corsa Competizione, which encouraged many to think about getting their hands on a steering wheel.
