Gran Turismo 5 News Post


Gran Turismo 5 v1.05 is available now, post your impressions here. it weighs in at roughly 600 MB.
  • Seasonal Events: [Seasonal Events] have been added to the [GT Mode] – [GT Life] screen. From here you can participate in official online events from the Polyphony Digital team. In these events, all participants are under the same regulations, and if you complete the event you will win rewards and experience. Compete on the leader boards with players around the world, in Time Trials and Drift Trials!
  • Online Collector’s Dealership: An [Online Collector's Dealership] has been added to the left and centre of the [GT Mode]-[GT Life] screen. In here you will find popular and rare cars. You might just come across that one car you’ve always been looking for, that you haven’t been able to find in the [Used Car Dealership].
  • Online Race Rewards and Experience: When you complete a race in the [Open Lobby] or [My Lounge], you will now gain rewards and experience points. Even if you are focused more on playing online, you’ll still be able to gain rewards and levels that you need to progress in [GT Life].
  • Driving Distance and Number of Wins in Online Races: The driving distance and the number of wins you achieve when you complete a race in [Open Lobby] or [My Lounge] will now affect your stats in [Profile] and the [Garage]. Here the results from your online play will cumulate within [GT Life].
  • Improved Rewards: The rewards for winning races in both A-Spec and B-Spec in [GT Mode]-[GT Life] have been increased for a limited time only. (This applies until the end of January 2011.) This is a great chance for those who were previously having difficulties getting ahead in the game, due to a lack of funds for tuning and purchasing required cars.
  • Race Information Display: It is now possible to set the [Race Info Display] in [Start]-[Quick Options]. (You can also set this in [Race Display] in [Options]).
  • Save Data Backup: You can now copy and restore your save data. For details, please refer to the in-game [Manual].

  • Car Name Change: The official name of “Red Bull X1″ has been changed to the “Red Bull X2010″.

Very nice update. Loving the continued support from Sony.

Indeed, go to love the continued support. Apparently they are going to give us an update a month.

Sweet, that is indeed good news!

I'm so glad about the save data backup. I wished for this game for Christmas and was going to be at home for a month after (on the PS3 here, not the one at my dorm). I didn't want to have to either play this for a month and have to restart when I go back to school, or wait out a month without playing it in general just so I can play it at school.

I was about to ask Santa I was going to reconsider.

Online racing now gives you GT Life progress.

Looks like I'll be spending some time online!

I like the idea of the Online Collector’s Dealership... updating now.

Damn!

Awesome!

- Been waiting for the Backup Data. (Imagine if your PS3 craps out...! all those hours!!!)
-And I love the increase in EXP gained. (NHL11's reduced EXP for Be-A-Pro after their patch was the opposite!)

Whoot!

What's the online dealership thing? I don't understand what it is. I'm downloading the patch now so I guess I'll figure it out soon.

Just an extra dealership for a chance to "roll" one of them sought after cars that you want.

And I personally think they may expand upon it and offer cars there that you can not get offline (like add to it).

I just checked they have some nice touring cars I would have bought, but I bought the Formula Gran Turismo instead! Time to rack up the cash for those touring cars though!

damn, u still can't save 24h races
 
# 14 mikenoob @ 12/20/10 01:56 PM
Wow, I must have skipped over the Back-up Save, I just saw it now. That is great news for me! I was worried of my PS3 dying soon with mine acting up and everyone else's fat 60GB dying on them.
 
# 15 DirtyJerz32 @ 12/20/10 02:40 PM
Yes! Nice update!

I like the HUD, lol. I need to see what turns are coming up
 
# 18 Ronstr @ 12/20/10 08:54 PM
I can sell my duplicated cars now!

I wish I would have realized how long this ****ing update would take... I would have started it earlier during the game.

I was lucky to be home this morning to do it, so it took no more than 10 minutes!

Peak time though, I can imagine it being sloooooooooooow!
