Just because Gran Turismo 6 won’t be a Forza-killer on the PlayStation 4 it doesn’t mean that it won’t be an extremely good racing simulator for the PS3, and let’s all be honest here, not everyone of us can afford a PS4 right off the bat anyway.

 Gran Turismo 6 demo now available on PSN

As we await the arrival of the full GT6 game later this year, Polyphony Digital has followed through with its promise to deliver a demo of the game.  GT fans can download the demo off PSN today. For those that are really into GT, they can explore the demo’s time trial mode which is a preliminary for booking a ticket into GT Academy.

The time trial consists of four warm-up races in a Nissan LEAF and 370Z, and five time trials which are broken down into four sections of Silverstone and finally the full track in the 370Z.  Aspiring racers definitely need to check this out, as the top 31 racers will be invited to the National Finals.  The trials will be open until July 28, but the rest of the demo will be available to play until the end of August.
