GT Academy 2012 seems to have captured the interest of PS3 gamers as the number of unique players participating passed the magic 1,000,000 mark earlier this week.
In a series of Tweets on June 19th, Kazunori Yamauchi shared with us a number of statistics about the download’s impact. Current numbers include:
- Over 1,000,000 unique PSN IDs playing
- Over 10,000,000 gold trophies attained
- More than 174,000,000 player retries
- 111,240,000 miles/178,980,000 km driven – enough to drive from the Earth to the Sun and almost a fifth of the distance back again!
There are still four days to go until this first phase of GT Academy closes on June 25th and qualifying, registered players from eligible countries will be selected for their regional finals based on their Round 8-5 times – and for the rest of us to secure the gold trophies needed to get bonus gifts in Gran Turismo 5.
While there’s time left, keep checking our GT Academy 2012 forum for hints, tips, and discussions with other players – and we wish good luck to all GTPlanet members!
