Playstation Blog: New GT5 Goodies, Plus GT Academy

Lots of exciting news in the Gran Turismo world today.

last time trial I think I was like 80k place and 30 seconds behind the leaders, yea no chance for me.

GT5 the greatest driving sim ever made. Only on PS3!

In the last time trial, I was smoking out 750 with the regular car and 247 with the tuned car. And I only played it about 70 times (complete laps). And was still learning since the last GT I played was GT3 and I skipped GT4.

I want to try to do good, but, I'm waiting for my wheel before I try any more.

Yeah what a piss off... And they have the nerve to call it GT Academy (North America)... If it was North America it would include Canada, otherwise it's just GT Academy US. I hate how Canada always gets snubbed with these sorts of things.

I love GT. I have a wheel and chair.

If i actually won, being 28...That would be a pretty major lifestyle shift. May be worth my time.

I'm definetly passionate about driving in GT.

no chance ill win. but its so tempting to register. maybe i could get a driving wheel or something? how many prizes are out there?

I love GT and have been playing for hours however, what happens when you beat all the events? I tried the on-line play but a lack of clans, organised events, betting, etc leaves me with no incentive to keep going back.

I'm just concerned that nothing will keep me coming back for me once I get through all the A league challenges.

if the incentive isn't the actual driving then no amount of gimmicks will keep you coming back
