This week the Team VVV YouTube channel has had something of a Gran Turismo frenzy as we got our first look at Gran Turismo 6 with the GT Academy 2013 demo.
Spanning several events covering a wide range of tracks and Nissans, the first two stages take you through the Sunday Cup, an event that should be familiar to GT veterans. As is tradition, the Sunday Cup acts as a gentle introduction to the world of Gran Turismo with races in slow hatchbacks - in this case a Nissan Leaf.
While not exactly the fastest car in the world, its slower pace allows you to aclimatise to GT6's new physics engine.
Our first commentated runs take you on a slow motion run through Autumn Ring and Suzuka as Alan provides his observations.
What are your thoughts on the GT Academy demo so far? Discuss in our forum thread.
Agreed! Cant wait until november. By the way in the 5th video of 9 "PCars UI: SOLO" i noticed theyre using a tune that was in GTR 2
Its a shame that they're shutting down but it should mean that Raceroom improves as in my opinion its lagging behind the other main sims (surely this must be the main cause for their bankruptcy?) The game has potential and an acceptable amount of content to buy, however I think the prices for individual cars and tracks is a little steep considering the quality of them compared to Assetto Corsa...
Always feel these sorts of packs are all very,,,meh. But how you can include a Merc in a "Best of British" baffles me, regardless of where it was built. Surely there are better example of British sportscars from the past that can be used? Anyway, microtransactions are the way forward and I like DLC but throw in a track or something, no?
Just need the games room to be sorted...might have to just check this out on a friends setup instead. ;o)
...and less shiny graphics. Not everything in real life looks brand new all the time.
