Gran Turismo Sport – FIA Digital License Early Details

Gran Turismo Sport – FIA Digital License Early Details

The GT Sport’s FIA Digital License is an interesting announcement by Polyphony Digital, in partnership with the FIA, a new type of racing license sanctioned by the FIA and local governing bodies of motorsport in countries around the world.

The FIA Digital License is required to go racing in any FIA-sanctioned Online Championship in Gran Turismo Sport. While asking Kazunori Yamauchi on how to obtain the License in the game, he stated that the details are still not finalized, due to the discussions with the FIA are still ongoing.

however the current tentative conditions to obtain the FIA Digital License are as follow:

  • Completion of GT Sport’s “Racing Etiquette Mode”, which includes guides and tests on the following:
    • Signals
    • Flags
    • Safety Car protocols
    • Cautions
    • Proper driving conduct and etiquette
  • To achieve “silver” or better results in all of GT Sport’s “Campaign Mode” events
  • Maintain a certain level of Driver Class and Sportsmanship Points

Drivers may be need to pay an annual license fee to the governing body of motorsport in their country, not to Polyphony Digital, but to FIA or the local motorsport club. This also requires the country’s local motorsport organization to participate and collaborate to the program. Major territories like the United States, Canada, Germany, France, and Japan have yet to be confirmed, although Kazunori re-assured that they are working hard to bring more local governing bodies into the program.

This brand new approach will bring virtual/digital online racing to an all new level, with the backing of International Racing Organization like FIA, by applying the same requirements and regulations from the real world motorsport to virtual/digital online racing. In sometime future, you can be a real Professional Racing Driver or Virtual/digital Professional Racing Driver, or even both.

“Tetris” The Movie – Not One But Trilogy

What would you expect from a “Tetris” movie? The movie was first announced in 2014, and it has been shrouded in mystery ever since. Now the movie producer Larry Kasanoff revealed “slightly” more but also raised more questions.

Kasanoff revealed that the movie is actually first part of a trilogy, said that the science-fiction story is huge and requires three movies to tell the story. And Kasanoff guaranteed that no one will able to figure out what the movie about.

Casting for the film is currently underway, and the production is set to start in 2017 in China. Tetris The Movie will be produced by Kasanoff’s Threshold Entertainment Group and Chinese billionaire Bruno Wu’s Seven Star Works. Kasanoff is also known for producing “True Lies,” “Beowulf” and a number of LEGO TV movies and shorts.

I’m very curious on how’s a globally known puzzle game turns out to be on the big screen under the genre of Sci-Fi.
