As reported on the sixth axis.

This years GT Academy is available to download. It is based on the GT 6 engine etc. So worth a look. Silverstone is the track. I am downloading now..... You'll be able to find me towards the bottom of the leaderboards.

The GT Academy also acts as a GT6 Demo.

Been playing this for the past few hours & initial impressions are good.

Can really feel the updated Handling/physics/tyre models, Been using my DFGT & i've got a much better feel for the car compared to GT5, Especially when it starts to oversteer.


If the full game feels like this (Or better) then just based on the handling alone its a massive step up from GT5, Right now seems GT6 will be a Day 1 buy for me

Yes I'm really impressed with this demo. All of the things I hated about Gran Turismo 5 appear to have been vastly improved, the main things being the handling and the menu's.

I know it's only a demo, but there don't appear to be as many menu's to scroll through before each race and the loading times are significantly faster than in GT5.

The car handling is much better in this demo and the car no longer loses it's grip quite so easily as in GT5 and the graphics appear to have been greatly enhanced as well.

First day purchase for me, I can't wait
