Gran Turismo Sport is coming close to its release on PS4, and today we get more news and goodies.

First of all, we get a few trailers directly from Sony. Sony Australia just released a trailer starring local driver and GT Academy 2015 winner Matt Simmons.

More clips come from Japan, with quite a few commercials released by the local branch of PlayStation. They’re rather funny, and you can check them all out below.

Last, but not least, we get word from Producer Kazunori Yamauchi himself about the server issues that have been hitting the beta before and prompted the folks at Polyphony to reconfigure the servers.

Yamauchi-san mentions that now the servers have stabilized, and that the team was surprised by over one million players.

Gran Turismo Sport is set to release on October 17th in North America, and on October 18th in Europe. The demo is currently downloadable and available to everyone from the PlayStation Store, and it’ll be available until later today (October 12th) at 8:00 AM PDT, so there are only a few hours left.
