Look out for the limited-time Gran Turismo Sport demo


There are some hoops to jump through

I hope you aren't burned out on racing games for the year. Following a delay, Gran Turismo Sport is pushing toward an October 17 launch, but before then, you'll be able to go hands-on with a demo.

There are some less-than-ideal restrictions, however. The demo itself is time-limited and will run from October 9 through October 12, with PlayStation Plus members getting a head start on pre-loading beginning October 7 at 8:00am Pacific and playing on October 9 at 12:00am Pacific. Non-members will be able to download and then play the demo starting October 9 at 6:00pm Pacific.

The good news is that credits you earn (up to $1 million) and vehicles you unlock will carry over to the full version of Gran Turismo Sport. "At the start of the demo, drivers will have the option to experience a taste of Sport, Campaign, or Arcade mode. New features such as the innovative Scapes Photography mode and Custom Livery Editor are also available for the very first time."

Sony also notes that we'll be able to race offline in two-player split-screen.
