“Gran Turismo,” the highly-acclaimed racing game for PlayStation, has released its first official App. This App contains not only game play information, but also a new dynamic vehicle database and Beyond The Apex, a special booklet that breaks down, in detail, the art of vehicle and driving dynamics. Beyond the Apex was previously only available in the limited-release edition of Gran Turismo 6 sold in Japan and Asia.
The App includes:
A digital version of “Beyond The Apex”, a special booklet that was included in the limited-edition version of Gran Turismo 6. The basics of automotive engineering, physics, mechanics and tuning are introduced with rich visual imagery. Towards the end of the book is a course reference guide for Gran Turismo 6 that also serves as a tour guide of the world.
• CAR DATABASE
More than 1200 cars included in Gran Turismo 6 have been organized into a virtual database encyclopedia of cars. Highly-detailed descriptions and specifications of the cars can be viewed together with beautiful imagery. Because they are organized in an easy-to-use list, the cars can be searched or sorted by name, year model, and other specs.
A “Favorites” feature lets you register your favorite cars.
