Here we go. The EU PS Blog’s just confirmed that a GT Academy 2010 Time Trial will release on December 17.

As the Blog puts it, “It will be the first opportunity to get a hands-on taster as to what Yamauchi-san and his Polyphony team have been carefully crafting and polishing at their Tokyo base.”

It’s not clear as yet whether this is actually GT5 code or just a new track using the Prologue build. We’re checking now.

Competition-wise, if you qualify in the top twenty within your country and you will be invited to a national final event. If you make it from there only then will you join the 20 that will be taken into the GT Academy 2010.

There’s full details through there.

    Ugh… now I’m hearing it’s not actually a demo of the new code, but done using Prologue. :(

    I guess it wont be long to wait to find out.

    is this a demo of the demo, a demo of prologue brought up to date or an actual demo of the actual game?

    Ths is like the longest drawn out game release ever.

    It can’t be GT5 code. I went hands on with it 2 weeks ago and it’s a jaggedy mess with shadows less than a quarter of the framebuffer.

    if it is, it’d be awesome.

    that said, it looked better than Forza 3.
    no offense, and all.

    It’s not a demo of GT5.

    It’s ‘GT Academy 2010′… It’s a time trial event using prologue’s engine on a GT5 track.

    In other words… another pointless release. JUST RELEASE GT5 ALREADY!

    Doesn’t “It will be the first opportunity to get a hands-on taster as to what Yamauchi-san and his Polyphony team have been carefully crafting and polishing at their Tokyo base.” imply it will be something new? Not Prologue code I mean?

    Where do you all get that information from?

    That would be explained by the inclusion of a GT5 track… but who knows.

    Hmmm… perhaps i’m just misreading the Blog info.

    I suppose Pat/SCEE know best =D.

    Still, it seems odd that on the blog they never come outright and say ‘it’s a GT5 demo!’.

    It seems like it’s what Gran Turismo HD was to Prologue.

    I’m just double-checking this. Sorry. I was told specifically it was a GT5 demo. Hang on.

    I’m going to edit the headline. There seems to be some confusion about this now.
