Gran Turismo 5 Academy Edition racing to PS3 this Autumn
Sony have announced that a new edition of the brilliant racing sim Gran Turismo 5 will be racing to PS3 later this Autumn to celebrate the successful collaboration with Nissan on the popular GT Academy programme.
Called the Academy Edition, it will include all of the downloadable content currently on the PlayStation Store as well as new features.
The content is as follows:
- Complete Pack (Car Pack, Course Pack, Special Paint Pack, Racing Gear Pack)
- Car Pack 2
- Car Pack 3 and Course Pack 2
- The Nissan GTR which Kazunori Yamauchi, the series creator, had driven in this year’s Nurburgring 24 hour race.
Yamauchi seems to be very pleased with the success of GT5 saying:
“GT Academy has captured the imagination of many Gran Turismo fans. It is exciting to watch what Lucas Ordóñez, Jordan Tresson, Jann Mardenborough and Bryan Heitkotter in the USA, are achieving in their new racing careers with Nissan.
People can now see that it is possible to make the switch from being a fast gamer to become a real racing driver. We wanted to mark the tremendous success of GT Academy with the very latest version of GT5.”
It will be released on the 26th September for a reasonable £19.99/€29.99.
