PlayStation Store: GT Academy 2012

Very seldom do gamers get a chance to take their skills to a real life scenario, God forbid if this was a contest for Call of Duty or Katamari, but fans that have been waiting since last year’s Gran Turismo Academy will be pleased to learn that this year’s GT Academy 2012 is now available on the PlayStation Store. The video showcases some of Nissan’s most revered sports cars, including the GT-R R35 and the sixth generation Fairlady, the 370Z. Physical copies of the game are not required and all players are welcome to take part in this eight-round competition (each round will contain five events) and only the fastest lap will be recorded. With the completion of each round, players are brought closer to the grand prize of becoming a professional race car driver. The schedule for this rare opportunity can be found below for those who missed yesterday’s announcement.

Round 1 and 2:
5/1 (Tue) to 6/24 (Sun)
Round 3 and 4:
5/14 (Mon) to 6/24 (Sun)
Round 5 and 6:
5/28 (Mon) to 6/24 (Sun)
Round 7 and 8 (Qualification Event):
6/11 (Mon) to 6/24 (Sun)
