I know this is my third post, but I'm so excited!

Seriously, after the physics, AI, UI, features (being able to adjust gears, interior view...), saving options, loading times, etc. have been improved, I almost feel like starting GT5 all over again, it'll be like a new game.

I hope all this is included in the discs they release from now so new buyers will get this from the start without having to download.

Now I hope the rumors about new cars and 25 new tracks are true and it'll be the first DLC I ever pay for.

I love the way PD are handling this. They could release a whole new game with all the new content, but we are getting it all with free updates and a DLC! That's customer care. I intend to support this business strategy.


I really dont mean to start a flame war with this comment but really??? The game took 5 years to make and this stuff should have been in the game from the start with all the time they spent.....and your praising them for this wait and overdue updates??? Their business strategy is about making games in the time period that someone can start and graduate college and still wont find the game out. 

Where as the "competition" cranks out 90+ games on metacritic almost 3x as fast. I dont get how the fans put up with it. 

I'm sorry but GT5 was an excellent game from the start and this just makes it twice as good.

You can say that Forza has more games but GT5 has more for less.

If you want to compare features with GT5 I can also say that Forza won't have weather/time changes, which is a feature that should be there...

All the cars in Forza 4 are treated equally, no standard or premium nonesense and to be fair pixelated weathers effects in GT5 are hardly worth bragging on about.

Not really, some were modelled internally at Turn 10, while others were modelled by Dhruva interactive (an Indian company: http://www.dhruva.com/newsite/inside.html#%20Games%20Art%20Studio,Projects ).

As for weather effects and nigth racing, Turn 10 dropped them because they couldn't achieve a steady framerate with 16 cars. Obviously GT5 had them all from the start: 16 cars, steady framerate and night racing (and night time weather effects)...

Turn 10 using Dhruva Interactive didn't hurt the game any.  I think that Pholyphony Digital should use their help also that way Gran Turismo 6 can come out before 2016.

Have been testing out the standard cars and their new cockpit views and its amazing.

I think the PSN servers are really congested now because of the GT5 Update. I'm sorry for the seriously long download times...

I like the dark in car view. I was surprised that the steering wheel and hands move. Cool. This interior view makes all the difference to me.

I took a quick drive in my new X2010 and got the gold but was surprised to be in position #120.000+. How many are playing this game really o.O? I was driving really well imo and this was just shortly after the update arrived.

Really active community

I believe Sony apologized if the PSN was slow because it appears that quite many were online ..doing something
(Dling Spec 2 is what comes to mind)

Cba to look up a source though xD
