Tuesday, 2nd July 2013 10:34 GMT By Dave Cook

Gran Turismo 6 has received a PS3 demo, courtesy of Polyphony Digital. Sony has outlined the contents of the demo in a new blog.

Sony’s blog explains that the demo doubles up as an entry to the next round of GT Academy, a training program that lets players compete for a spot to race for real with Nissan. The competition runs from today until July 28. The demo itself will stay live until August 31.

Let us know if you give it a whirl.

    The demo isn’t listed as GT6 but as ‘GT ACADEMY’. Search in newest demo’s.

    It’s available on the UK/EU store.

    @1 I see it as “GT Academy 2013″ and it’s just 1GB.

    Some extra details about the demo would be nice Dave.

    There are 4 race events, giving you the option to use either the Leaf or the 370Z in each event (still a poster boy for Nissan).
    The 4 tracks are Autumn Ring (short and full configuration), Suzuka East, and Silverstone.
    There are also 5 time trials event set in various configurations of the Silverstone track (one of them being the full lap, which will be used as the GT Academy selection process) using the 370Z.

    There have been reports of framerate drops as well, even on time trial events and apparently the AI still suck.

    Will definitely try this when I get home.

    So now we know the difference between GT5 and GT6 is not just the number. 6 has some more colour in the UI too. Shame about the cars handling like canal boats and sounding like 12v remote control buggies, eh?

    Time for Sony to superannuate the one-trick-pony Kaz.

    5: what? the handling of the cars is far superior to any other racer on the console..
