It’s been just a little over a month since GRID 2 hit shelves and the racing game has turned out to be a rather enjoyable diversion from our everyday lives.
It still doesn’t hold up to Gran Turismo or Forza Motorsports, but it’s the newest racing game out these days and as such, deserves our full attention. But if there’s one thing about the game that disappoints us, it’s the relative lack of some spicy aftermarket racecars ; a problem that Codemasters addressed with the release of a new DLC, called the Super Modified Pack.
There’s already a ton of excitement surrounding the upcoming release of Gran Turismo 6.
Though the game isn’t scheduled to hit shelves until November 28th, a lot of promotions involving GT6 have already been sprouting, hoping to catch the attention of gamers and car enthusiasts alike.
Recently, Sony announced that, beginning on July 2nd, players will now be able to download a free demo of GT6 , one that’ll sure to drive up interest of the game even further, thanks to a contest in the Nissan GT Academy to race against each other for a chance to win a seat in a real-life Nissan race car.
But if that doesn’t suit you, you can always opt for what Amazon is offering. The online store is offering the kind of promotion that’ll definitely raise your Gran Turismo 6 excitement level a few notches.
You can pre-order GT6 on Amazon and receive $1 Million in in-game credits to buy and build your dream garage from 1,200 cars. You’re not exactly getting actual money, but for that treat of $1 million in virtual currency, you can pretty much have your way in designing and upgrading your sports car any way you see fit.
Sony announced today that starting July 2nd, 2013 players will be able to download a free demo of Gran Turismo 6. The demo can be downloaded starting July 2nd for PS3 users.
Along with offering players the chance to test the upcoming game, the new demo will also offer contestants in 2013’s Nissan GT Academy the possibility to race against each other for a chance to win a seat in a real-life Nissan race car.
To enter the Nissan GT Academy competition all you have to do is have a Sony Entertainment Network account and access to a PlayStation 3 connected to the internet. Next you’ll need to download the Gran Turismo 6 demo and race for the best qualifying times.

Gran Turismo 6 is a big deal to anyone who has ever played the video game racing franchise. It’s been that way since we fell in love with the first one and it’ll be that way until the game’s developers decide to finally hang up its proverbial boots.
That being said, we’re all interested to see the technology behind the development of a game like Gran Turismo 6. Seemingly acquiescing to our needs, Polyphony Digital released a new video behind the development of the game, giving us a never-before-seen look at the preparation and time needed to ensure that we see a game that’s never before seen in the annals of car racing video games.
Don’t be surprised to see the word "new" pop up multiple times during the video. Chances are, Polyphony intended for it to appear there because a whole lot about the game really is new.
Pretty much everything, really, which is to say that we’re expecting, as always, to be blown away once we get our hands on the game when it hits shelves on November 28th.

This one comes Ubisoft and it’s called "The Crew.” If you watch the dedicated preview trailer of the game, you’d think that you were watching the first Fast & Furious movie again. But instead of the old Honda S2000’s they used in the movie, you get the treat of being behind the wheel of a heavily-modified Chevrolet Camaro .
The Crew has been classified as an open-world car action game, which means that there’s probably a strong reliance on online-play wherein you gather up your own outlaw crew with the objective of doing a multitude of law-breaking jobs.
Combine the detailed car customization program with the chance to play your own Fast and Furious storyline, and you have a game that definitely caught our attention.
