If you’re looking to get your hands on the Gran Turismo 6 demo, the PS3 demo appears to be live now on the PlayStation Network (PSN). You’ll just need to do some quick workarounds to get it if you live in the United States.
According to one of our Facebook page fans, Jed Papa-Doc Arain, if you’re a U.S.-based PS3 player, you can login right now to PlayStation Network with a European account and get immediate access to the Gran Turismo 6 demo. To download the Gran Turismo 6 demo, you’ll have to look for the file “GT Academy 2013.” Sony hid the demo well, as it doesn’t reference Gran Turismo 6 by name at all.
If you have any issues downloading the Gran Turismo 6 demo early, blame our buddy Papa Doc. If you manage to snag it early using his method described above, hit him up on PSN via his PSN ID (PAPA_DOC_LIVES) and thank him for the advice while tearing it up online in the Gran Turismo 6 demo.
All of the cars and tracks from Gran Turismo 5 will be retained in GT6. But notable new additions to the already impressive line-up of historic cars, road cars and the latest race cars, brings the total car list to 1,200 at launch, with new cars set to be continually added online. Several thousand aerodynamic parts and custom wheels will be available for almost all cars, and players can personalize their own custom cars in game to the greatest ever level possible.
GT6 won’t just be a rehash, as it will also introduce new tracks and cars and a revised user interface. A new compact game engine will improve operation and allow expansion via downloadable content. Meanwhile, GT6 is also set for expanded connectivity with other devices such as smart phones and tablets and increased social and community functions.
