New DLC coming soon! This looks pretty good, but I was kinda hoping for more tracks. But Spa will do

By the way, check out the new karting track we get. That's going to be f'ing awesome to drive!

$5 for 1 real track. Wow, that kinda sucks. I was really hoping for the Times Square track to make a return. Spa is still a great track though.


That X2011 looks badass! But the Toyota Prius Touring Car makes me chuckle, lol.


They say the Stig's outfit is in this game already, but I have yet to see the damn thing. I've been trying to get it since they came out with the suits and helmets.

For $12 I'm just going to get the whole thing. Two new tracks, a dozen kick ass cars (other than the Prius), cool paint chips and some sick racing suits seem like that money is worth it.

I believe PD should bring back their old tracks in a free update since they should have been in the game to begin with. Not sure how many other racing games lose tracks over the years...

Still excited as hell for this though

I'm not thrilled over the prize money drop though. That really killed it for me. I'll keep playing, but now the seasonal races are just blah to me.


I am really liking this new GT-R N24 though, its not the fastest thing in the world, but it handles like a dream.


EDIT: Also, the new opening movie is pretty damn cool once you get past the pointless factory segment.

I hear ya on the prize money. But I got nearly 18mil saved up so I'm good for a while

I just got that N24 GTR as well and I'm having a blast with it. The standard interior views are only worth using on the open-cockpit cars like the Le Mans prototypes and the Caterham.

Also I can't really tell how they improved the physics but it still feels good.

And now that we have control over the weather and better replay controls I'll be taking a lot more now

Before, actually. The day Vettel secured the championship (sunday).


Wait, actually I did get one after 2.0, on my other account. So to answer your question, yes, I did.

They gave you an X2010 just for downloading 2.0? I only have one courtesy of Mr. Vettel.


And holy hell... I was racing against my friend online for about 3 hours. He is one of the best drivers I know (real and virtual) and we had a blast. Shuffle races with random but equally fast cars and then we did 3 lap shootouts with the exact same car. We were never more than .5 seconds apart. I have never had that much fun with GT5 before. Forza what?

I got it before 2.0. I logged in on Monday, got upgraded to whatever pre 2.0 it was, got the car. Last night I logged in again and then was prompted to go 2.0. 2.0 was about a 1.1GB download. Whatever was before it was about 68MB, which was probably the car.

Another thing of note...some in-car views have a bug where the steering wheel doesn't turn. I've seen it happen more often than not. The hands move accordingly (and interestingly, are rendered as soon as they come from behind the wheel) but the wheel is static and just turned to the left (IIRC).

Interesting...

I think the interior views are a joke. I don't even use it unless it's an open-cockpit Le Mans prototype or the Caterham 7. It's surprisingly accurate on the BMW V12 LMR.

Remember when you would invite friends over and would switch off like real race cars and one person would attempt to sleep while the other drove.

Idk if you ever did that. lol

It kind of irks me that they're just handing out the X2010's to anyone who logs in. I worked my ass off earning one in the Vettel challenge.

Haha Yeah giving out that X2010 is kinda gay, but honestly I already had mine.

www.twitter.com/PlayStation - "Update: GT5 DLC will hit the North American Store on 10/25 but will include a special bonus. Apologies for the inconvenience!"

Just in case any American GT5 players haven't made the switch to Forza yet....


btw it seems that this was SCEA's decision, not PD's.

Maybe they caught wind that the 25th is my birthday and wanted to make it a celebration like DICE wanted to do.



If thats the case, then I'm sorry, lol.

Edit: Edit: just downloaded the DLC and it's working. Of course, I'm the idiot who bought it twice because I've never bought anything from the PS Store before and didn't know I got it twice. So yeah.... fuck.

At least you can get it. Apparently someone in their infinite wisdom is screwing those with mismatched regions. The DLC is region locked. As I have a US PS3, and a UK game, I'm screwed. So I need to swap with someone who may have the reverse of my situation. Such an easy fix...

That sucks. Are you on the GTPlanet forums by chance? I'm sure you could find someone to swap with on there.

And yes, that's complete BS on their part.

Need to have hard core GT5 friends to do that...the sad thing is....we cannot share victory for a real team work....let's say i have 3-4 other friend who are willing to do that...they might have to ask me to do the same for them....that means i still have to run endurance races 3-4 more times...

and my real friend would tell me to get a life....

anywayz, just finished Le mans last weekend....even with pit stop save...still feels painful somewhat....
