GT Academy 2010 Launches December 17th With Downloadable Time Trial

"Hello everyone, its Penrose Tackie here Gran Turismo, European Brand Manager.

Following the groundbreaking success of the GT Academy last year and as part of our activities around the forthcoming launch of Gran Turismo 5, I am delighted to officially unveil GT Academy 2010.

On 17th December exclusively via the PlayStation store, we will be launching the GT Academy 2010 Time Trial. The time trial will be the only way into this year's Academy, and if you've got what it takes it could be the start of a life-changing journey.

Last year the GT Academy programme unearthed a real driving talent in the form of Lucas Ordenez from Spain, who after winning the GT Academy went on to drive for the Nissan PlayStation race team and take an astonishing second place in the GT4 Championship – all in his first season!"

It still amuses me that Gran Turismo had its own TV show.

gaffyh3240d ago

SWEET, unexpected demo, and now we will see how good GT5 looks in the flesh.

thereapersson3240d ago

Gran Turismo is REAL racing culture

Microsoft Xbox 3603240d ago

Gran Turismo 5 is the definitive racer.

rockleex3240d ago (Edited 3240d ago )

Forza will soon be having their own academy too! A much more definitive one!

Players will compete against each other by drawing on their cars. :P

Edit: Will we be able to play the time trial demo from the EU Store even if we live in the US? I hope so.

nefertis3240d ago

Anyway, that's awesome. My anticipation of this game increases tenfold.

I'm just going to download the test track for the sake of playing the game and not really taking the Academy seriously.

I want to experience what the slightly upgraded version of GT5p looks like before I actually but the massive upgraded version which is obviously the full game.

The Nissan in those images looks awesome and it looks so real.

What game can help turn a gamer into a real race car driver which won second place in a real driving competition?

phosphor1123240d ago

Guitarded3240d ago

These guys actually believe he is driving real cars in the GT4 Championship. Rabid fanboys FTW.

Why o why3240d ago

SOME guys actually believe these guys believe he is driving real cars in the GT4 Championship.. SOME guys even believe painting cars is better than driving MORE of them......Rabid fanboys FTW;)

FordGTGuy3240d ago

by quite a few race drivers as of right now. If you think Gran Turismo was the only training that guy had before getting behind the wheel of a race car your sadly mistaken. Neither Forza or Gran Turismo can ready you for the real experience.

I thought I wasn't going to buy another car's game but Gt5 is the next one.
Nascar? Rally? 1000 cars? WTF.....I want it.

FordGTGuy3240d ago

PirateThom3240d ago


How many minutes after releasing you think it will be before the first Forza 3 vs Gran Turismo 5 demo comparisons will pop up?

Perkel3240d ago

it will begin before demo will be out ;)

sabestar3240d ago (Edited 3240d ago )

Don't worry, it won't be too long could be even before the demo is out.

Man I can't wait. I never got to try prologue so I really want to try this

Antan3240d ago

Theres one in Pending already!

himdeel3240d ago (Edited 3240d ago )

...flux capacitor enabled Deloreans, go back in time and then create a post with a comparison of the Forza 3 Demo and GT5 Demo two days before Forza 3 came out.

I used my Delorean already and can tell you it's going to happen :)
