GT3 gets its first run-out
And the fans go wild!
On Saturday in Tokyo, Mitsubishi Motors held an event called the "CHAMPION'S MEETING with EVOLUTION", to thank their fans for all their support during the recent FIA World Rally Championship. Mitsubishi set up areas all over the paddock where upcoming Sony title Gran Turismo 3 A-Spec was demonstrated to adoring fans. With predictably smooth graphics and startling realism, the game is likely to become one of the most popular PS2 titles of the year, and Sony's first real killer-app. Fans of the game include Tommi Makinen, one of the WRC drivers, who gave producer Kazunori Yamauchi a master class in time trialling. "As was expected, he's completely different. His first trial time is almost as fast as ours, and we had to play forever to get that time," Mr. Yamauchi told Famitsu at the event. Makinen used Mitsubishi Motors Lancer Evolution VI's rally spec for the time trial, a vehicle that will be included in the final version, when it ships next month.
