Gran Turismo 5 Reveals New Cars, Courses, Modes, and More

Way back in December, we brought you word of GT Academy, a contest where Gran Turismo 5 racers could compete online for a chance at driving a real race-car. Today, we bring you word that cheaters/'sploiters have mucked up the contest for everyone.

Apparently, some racers in round two of the contest, found a way to cut corners without being penalized or were "intentionally hitting walls" in order to post impossibly fast lap times. In response Sony has decided to let everyone who competed in round 2 of the contest through to round 3, but the company has also decided it will delay the next round until such time as they fix all these "loopholes." No word on how long it will take.

All of which begs the big questions when it comes to game exploits: Whose fault is it? Obviously, gamers who are cutting corners or otherwise exploting game geometry and physics know they're not playing fair, but on the other hand, a game shouldn't allow for that, especially when they are using it for a contest with real cash and prizes.
