The Gran Turismo series is a bit of a industry mocking tool. Not because the games aren’t good, in fact they are excellent, but because they consistently miss their deadlines by years.. literally.
When it was announced earlier this year that Gran Turismo 6 will be launching later this year I didn’t believe it, and I was not alone, but in a surprise turn of events a fully functional demo has now been released on the PSN store for you to download.
The demo only contains Silverstone for now and is being used for the European GT Academy which is an incredible opportunity that as far as I know we aren’t allowed to enter.
The full demo includes the following
- A quick tutorial that includes tips and tricks on the controls and navigating around the track
- Four warm-up races using two Nissan cars, the LEAF and 370Z
- Five time trials on the Silverstone track driving the Nissan 370Z, four of which take place on various sections of the track, and one being the full lap. That one full lap time becomes the entry time for GT Academy. Enter as often as you like before 3:59pm Pacific Time on July 28th.
And they even released a video to make it more enticing.
Which only leaves one question; Who on earth thought that disgusting soundtrack would be a good idea for a video? My poor ears.
I'm cranky, arrogant and ever so amazingly annoying but when you get to know me you will also realise I'm honest and incredibly good at describing myself... now pass me that beer
