Here’s a look at the Akiba Grand Prix, held the Akihabara district of Tokyo last weekend. Making excellent use of GT PSP‘s multiplayer functionality, the Akiba GP led a group of players around a “circuit” of stores, shops, and restaurants, competing in different race events at each location. The final event of the day involves a showdown with two-time Super GT Series world champion and Best Motoring presenter Juichi Wakisaka.
Needless to say, it sounds like a really fun little competition, but that’s not all: the winner gets a trophy, 229 rare cars in GT PSP, a PS3 Slim, a free copy of Gran Turismo 5, and their name forever etched in the ending credits of the game.
