An online survey released by Sony has the firm asking participants whether they would enjoy certain additions to PS Plus. One of the survey questions was regarding whether customers who bought a game on either PS3 or PS Vita, would enjoy getting the game free for the other console. Well, yeah, who wouldn’t? What that means is if you bought “Resistance on PS Vita, you could download Resistance on PS3 for free,” the survey used as an example. Sounds like a good deal, but note this is just a survey at this point, and no means an indication Sony is planning to implement the feature just yet. The survey also mentions the possibility of a Vita version of Gran Turismo, which if the history of the series is any indication, isn’t far-fetched in the slighted. Thanks, IGN.

One of the first GT Academy winners, Lucas Ordonez, has told the EU PS Blog how hard the entire experience has been for him, speaking before the release of the GT5 time trial demo to find new drivers on December 17.
“The whole thing is tough,” he said. “But for me racing cars was my dream, so it was great. Anyone taking part has to be prepared for a real 360 degree change to their life. You have to have total dedication and be prepared to make sacrifices.
“Lars, who won with me, was a great guy and he was a good driver, but I just don’t think he was focused enough and he ended up not being ready to race.”
Ordonez has now secured your race license and driven in the the 24 Hour race in Dubai.
