British Police train on PlayStation’s GT Sport for PS4
Automologist MAC can no longer tell his kids that spending too much time on the PlayStation is no good for them…
Many parents are worried that their kids spend far too long on PlaySation at the cost of their homework. Well, fret no more. Being a PlayStation expert could open up a whole new career path with the British Police, who themselves are using PlayStation to train their pursuit drivers to improve their skills in a safe environment.
The British Police are not looking for PlayStation to replace the more traditional ‘on-road’ driving training, but are certainly interested in seeing how relatively low-cost methods can improve the individual skills of their officers, and of course Grand Tourismo, another PlayStation favourite in my household, is used by professional race drivers to learn the circuits.
West believes that nothing will fully substitute the rigorous training that the police drivers currently undertake, but new technology can augment their ability and refresh current police training methods. GT Sport was given a limited demo last week and a mere million people took part. The game is launched this week and I am sure that it will be on the Christmas list in my house.
