Difference between GT5 and GT5 Academy

12 replies 481 views Edited Feb 11, 2013

Hi I haven't bought this yet just wanted to hear from the fans what are the differences and if it's worth it. Isn't there a free DLC that came out too?

Basically, you want the latest version edition because it has all of the updates and most DLC included, so get the Academy Edition.

Any idea when the academy trials will start for this year?

It will probably cover from the beginning of May, to the end of June.

I wonder if there will be another North American GT Academy this year. Nissan North America has it's own racing budget separate from the worldwide racing budget and the guy in charge of it isn't very interested in sports car racing. They also don't seem very interested in getting their GT Academy winners into race seats, or making seats available to them. Now that they have two drivers that they can barely take care of, I'd be surprised if they decide to take on a third.

thanks for the insider info... that is very unfortunate.

 

I believe this may be the best possible way to recruit talent, so they're missing out horribly.

I do not see the Academy version on sale anywhere in North America.  Otherwise I would have picked up a copy instead of the GT5 XL.  Are you sure that the Academy version is not EU exclusive?  So, if you are in the EU region, you are in luck.

Locally, all the stores were sold out before Christmas and they haven't restocked yet, not even the big stores have stock.

 

[edit] The US store does not list the Academy Edition, only the XL edition.
