Sony-Polyphony-Digital-Bring-GT-Academy-

 

Once again Sony, Polophony and Nissan have teamed up to bring gamers a chance to jump from the game world to the real world. Well for everyone but us in little old NZ anyway.

 

That's why NZGamer.com is giving you the opportunity to to compete against other kiwi's for a chance to win a great prize.

 

I will be attempting to post a decent lap time throughout the duration of the event and all you have to do to be in to win is - beat my final time.

 

Sound easy? Probably is - Do your best lap time around Spa in the Nissan GT3 then post them up here to see how you're going

Is this a demo, like last times one? Or do we need to own GT6?

 

Thanks.

 

E- Ah, I don't have it lol. Nice ninja Monkey.

I don't really count- can't give myself a prize haha.

Although a prize from Sidawg does sound interesting- he sounds very confident

Hmmm great competition idea! I don't think I could beat anyone at the moment though, considering my current level of out-of-practiceness.

I spent about 15 mins doing my lap time, got gold then carried on with my night.

I should have another go before Thursdays racing - hopefully I will vastley improve my time :)

I gave up. :P

 

I don't think i have the patience anymore in my old age. 

 

Speaking of steering wheels, which we weren't but will be after this, does anyone know a place i could take my Logitec Driving Force GT to get fixed? I think the cat chewed the cables too much, now if i do a big slide and quickly countersteer, the wheel doesn't center anymore. Like i've almost had it upside down just to go in a straight line. Does this every time, even after resetting it'll eventually happen again.

 

That was a couple years back, been gathering dust ever since.  :(

On the subject of wheels.
I don't believe the Logitech g25/g27 are supported by the ps4.
I that it gets included in an update before Project Cars comes out

Final Results.

 

I managed to put up a best time of 2.19.444 on Spa. I felt there was heaps of room for improvement but every time I went on again to try and better my time, I just couldn't get into the groove!

 

The only person who managed to beat me was Sidawg he beat me out by around a full second with a quick time of  2.18.322.

Congrats to Sidawg, He has won himself a copy of God of War :Ascension.

 

We all knew that Sidawg would come out on top but I expected a few to beat my time at least.

 

Hopefully they release another one of these where NZ is actually involved and we get a few of us in the nationals.
