  1. YES.

  2. Could be worse,as it stands they wasted months of development time on GTA, have not been updating or giving any of the DLC like they promised, and have basically ditched a game that too forever after less than 2 years of it being released, but hey, they aren’t actively releasing content to make it worse, so let’s be thankful of that.

    • CNSpots1

      This person is an obvious troll, sensitive fans please ignore him.

    • Actually, in the past their changes to tire wear upset many of the fans, myself included, there are several instances if you check back the responses to release notes of patches where more than a few people didn’t like how PD had altered the game.

  3. Tilemaxx

    I want to buy the Weider HSV with a different PSN account that has funds in, will it work with my main PSN account? They are both European, and my disc is Euro region, too. Please answer.

    • I know I’m not official or anything, but I’m pretty sure you should.

    • MaterA113

      Yes you can as long as it’s cars and tracks. The gear and paint packs you can’t because you can only download those once.

    • MaterA113

      Purchase the car with the account that has funds, and download it. Then go into the game and hit downloadable content in the game profile you want the car in. You can download the car in every profile on that PS3.

    • Tilemaxx

      Thanks a lot guys!

  4. TokoTurismo

    WOW! We get more DLC and look, more crying. Pff. This is why I said PD needs to forget about GT5 all together and fully focus on GT6. When it comes to DLC for GT, it all goes downhill. I think it’s time that PD should not bother giving out any DLCs for this game anymore, it’ll never cheer anyone up no matter how hard PD tries…

    But overall it takes PD forever to create DLC anyway so why waste their time making any for this game if everybody will compain about it? Honestly.

    Nissan GT-R N24 GT Academy ’12: Well DUH, they raced it at Nurburg, so obviously it’ll be in GT5 because it had a good reason to even be in it. “Kaz himself of course.”

    Subaru BR-Z S ’12: Some people’s been begging for this for sometime now, so hurray its in GT5. What’s with all the hate on it? It was so obvious it’ll come to GT at some point, so get over some of yourselves please. Its not meant to be, “OHHH ALL FAST.” Its purpose is to perform well just like both the 86GT and FR-S.

    Honda Weider HSV-010 (SUPER GT) ’11: Others seem happy about this one, cus its new to the series so no big deal.

    • Like the HSV, I think a lot of people just want something completely new for the DLCs, especially if they’re going to cost us.

      I, however agree, that they need to get GT6 out asap. The DLCs have been indications that they’re probably, really trying to save all the good, DIFFERENT, cars for GT6, rather than GT5 DLC.

    • TokoTurismo

      Yeah they really need to bring out GT6 now. What could they be doing with that game? I believe it’s better to have a fresh new game, other than to waste with this one. I also agree with you about having new car into the series. PD should stop pissing everyone off.

    • sangdude82

      @ Toko u reckon GT6 will come out around end of 2013 or early 2014?

    • TokoTurismo

      I don’t I’m guessing 2013? It should release at some time on its own with games around its date. :)

    • TokoTurismo

      *don’t know. lol >_<

    • Progress823

      @Toko…

      When GT6 comes out and DLC for it released there will be more of the same complaining and bellyaching about the content. What is PD going to do then? Release GT7 to stop the complaining?

      This DLC is unique as it brings a totally new car to GT5 (Weider Honda HSV).

    • TokoTurismo

      I agree with the endless complaining about the DLCs for GT5. It’s just that PD should look into fourms to see what their actually want in their games. It’ll motivate them to do more and more.

    • diegorborges

      I’m with you Toko! GT6 for 2013… PS3.

      I believe.

    • Flaco13

      Toko, forget about the dlc for a second. You say PD should look in to forums…? …Adjusted the changes in control characteristic when altering vehicle height from standard height….Amount of air resistance change when altering aerodynamic wing settings has been increased…Rate of tire wear in endurance races has been slowed …Response of the clutch pedal when using the steering wheel controllers… All those things where highly demanded by the comunity, Do they not listen? Sure?

  5. sangdude82

    Sweet!!! I finally get to drive that GT-R & Honda HSV-010 :D it would’ve been better if the HSV-010 had better looking decals.

    • sangdude82

      i mean different looking decals or have no decals at all…

  6. lolwut? GT5 still gets updated?

  7. Halcyon925

    Yes! It comes out on my Birthday! :D

    • sibbystiggy

      well happy early birthday to u & hope somone gets u a psn top-up voucher as a gift lol

    • Halcyon925

      That’d be unexpected. And thanks!

  8. Henrique45

    the engine sound of the honda HSV looks awesome, there are many few videos of them, the sound likes a f1 car engine, i hope that sound will be presented in gt5, not poor sounds like the other super gt race cars. must see the video of the engine sound of that car, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DxKogppTYio

    • UrieHusky

      Sounds nothing like an F1 engine to my ears. F1 has an incredibly distinct tune.

      In saying that though. It does sound GLORIOUS, unfortunately, I fear PD are going to murder it =/ but still, one can hope

  9. Sele1981

    YAYYY more Japanese cars, this game definately needs more of them lol

  10. RentALife

    all we get is just 1 JGTC CAR and the ANOTHER NISSAN and Toyota and Subaru partnership to make the same exact looking car with different symbols and there both slow yup GT5 is dying just sayin

    • Well, if you don’t like it go play other game. Just saying…
      Can’t just people be happy when new cars are added?

  11. varmintx

    HSV for me. Can’t wait to see what the difference in the clutch will be. I screw up a gear change at least once a race as it is right now.

  12. Moontallico

    Can’t wait to see what PD’s going to do with HSV-010 sounds…

  13. masterrawad

    Praise the gods, our prayers (and whining) has been answered!

  14. ShawnPhillips

    Worth it for the BRZ. I know it is the same thing as the Toyota 86-GT and the Scion FR-S, but the Subaru emblem makes it 10 times better for me. I efffing love Subaru!

  15. MOTORTRENDmitch

    Love the HSV… I’ll buy it for that alone.
    I like the BRZ.. Just don’t know how necessary it is to give us another re-badged car.

    • sumbrownkid

      BRZ has a softer suspension set up compared to the FR-S/86GT.

      If they included the last two, they might as well include the BRZ. Only what’s confusing is that other two cars were added in for free.

    • sumbrown, the PSblog said the suspension is set up to make the car more stable than the other two. I guess that could mean softer, but more stable to me is stiffer.

  16. starbutt033

    Good Call, finally, exactly what we wanted, more realistic tire wear, crash your car severely enough, your done,,,thank you finally,, good car choices as well, glad to see you all are listening….

  17. acedition333

    Eh, 3 cars. Was expecting more DLC cars for this long period of waiting. Or either more RM/TC cars.
    I hope the HSV is paintable atleast..(probably NOT)…meaning that’s all you’ll be seeing on the track for a lil while.
    Atleast they’re doing BUG fixes. Something is better than nothing.

    Question is…… Is this the LAST DLC/Bug fixes??? THE END?

  18. karelpipa

    no buy

  19. sumbrownkid

    If you guys hate the GTR so much then you are playing the wrong game. If you hate alcohol then don’t hang out at a bar. Jesus

    • MOTORTRENDmitch

      That doesn’t make sense.. You go to a bar to consume alcohol. You don’t play Gran Turismo 5 to drive GTRs. You play GT5 to race and drive cars..

    • sumbrownkid

      I’m talking about in terms of how much attention PD gives to the Nissan brand over the other brands.

      Granted, I was a little stoned when I posted that, but I still stand by it.

  20. porsche 9146

    the HSV-010 GT is absolutely awesome!

    however, another N24 GTR and another toyobaru? no buy for me.

    • QuikSlvr223

      Gosh, you can buy the each car by itself for $.99 each, quit complaining.

  21. “• Rate of tire wear in endurance races has been slowed (excluding formula cars).”
    They just don’t get it… What about online!!!!?

    • sumbrownkid

      I’d rather have short tire life online to make the racing more unpredictable.

  22. fourliter

    I can’t find my very first post here on GTPlanet (it only seems to go back 100 posts), but it was in a thread about what cars we thought might be in GT5.

    On my list of guesses, IIRC I had the Mclaren MP4-12C (which at the time was only an unnamed prototype), Mercedes SLS AMG, R35 GT-R, Evo X, 3rd-gen STi, and a bunch of others that I can’t remember, but all made it into the game. That is, all but one. I was sure the HSV-010 would be in at launch. It’s about time!

  23. emmanuelp96

    They already have the Scion FR-S and the Toyota 86 and now the Subaru BRZ?!? I would get it…..If it was free…

    • alexlam24

      I was thinking it was free too. Ooh well it’s not like you have to buy it. Just get the other 2 cars

  24. Sputnik

    Thanks for individual purchase option PD, i will be buying only one car this time, since i have enough GT-Rs and obviously Toyota/Scion……

  25. mortrax

    very disappointing… i love GT5 but c’mon…

    • MÜLE_9242

      Supporting a game almost 2 years after a release is disappointing? Go away. Cry more.

    • MuoNiuLa

      We’re being told to go away for posting our opinions? And he even said he loved GT5.

      Oh, man…either love what PD does no matter what, or be told to get out.

    • mortrax

      they’re not the only one supporting the game ! everybody here is supporting gt5. like i said i love gt5, but they couldve payed more attention to what people want, and bring more variation in the dlc’s. i mean they are releasing these dlc’s anyway so why not make it a good one ? why always the same cars, but whatever… i only give my opinion like everybody else here, and you come and give me crap ? you’re acting like you made gt5! maybe you should cry more..

  26. sibbystiggy

    I saw pretty much every post on GTPLANET that PD has finally dropped GT5 & now just working on GT6,
    well…MUHAHAHAHA!!! do not underestimate polyphony digital guys! its still rolling :)

    • Silver-Sylph

      Rolling with garbage like this that should have already been in the game.

    • sibbystiggy

      wooaaaw, i mean:
      Nissan GT-R N24 GT Academy ’12
      Subaru BR-Z S ’12
      Honda Weider HSV-010 (SUPER GT) ’11

      should already have been in the game since last year even before they were made…
      there is somin wrong with u guys in the head…
      u moan if theres no DLC or update,
      u complain when there is,
      have you ever heard of the word ‘grateful’???
      i would define it on Google or look it up in the dictionary if i were u

    • MuoNiuLa

      Oh boy. The “greatful” argument. Have you heard of the fact we gave up our hard-earned moneyed to get this game? PD should be greatful to the 7 million people who bought GT5.

    • Silver-Sylph

      I would be grateful if PD stuck to there promise. And they did for how long? Like 4 months. Even then it was crap. They try to justify the several month absence by giving 5 cars with stickers on them.

  27. Endurance99

    You should hear what it sounds like! > here’s a clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IkcpZBuKNVg&list=LP0ouDBUBaThs&index=27&feature=plcp

  28. HKS racer

    HSV awesome news !

    Finally they released a super cool race car, keep up the good work PD, give us more HSV and the possibility to select the opponents, people want to create their own SuperGT events

  29. Yay they finally fixed the clutch issue! Good job PD I love you!

    • K1LLD0z3R

      What was wrong with the clutch? Sorry I have never used it and I’m curious.

  30. Juiposa

    HSV-010 OMG YES

  31. Kingofweasles

    Another Skyline/GTR… Really Kaz? It’s made up for that HSV-10 though… :drools;

  32. TheEzekiel

    Honda Weider HSV-010 (SUPER GT) ’11 GOD DAMNIT THANK YOU

  33. AJHG1000

    Well, just at the moment I don’t have my GT5 copy :/

  34. xero0083

    Ok its nice to see dlc but give us a beak enough of the Nissan gtr I’m so sick off that car this is one of the reasons a lot of people don’t play the game anymore STOP RAMMING THAT STUPID CAR DOWN OUR THROUTS !!

  35. KingDejch

    OH YEA! Can’t wait!

  36. xStretch-

    Just 1 new GT500? Get out PD

  37. HSV-010 <3!!

  38. Sum1s2pid

    HSV-010 joygasm.

  39. OH JEZZ…. MORE JAPANESE CARS…. C’MONNNNN

  40. I could care less about the brz but the gtr and the honda i likey i likey. And to all you complainers forza 4 will be having a price drop for the holiday season this year so maybe look into that.

  41. Subaru BR-Z S ’12 should be free imo. But the price is fine. Probably will buy all of them coz they cheap.

  42. R34EVO9

    IfO more cars that are already in the game.. O cool thanks..

  43. DragonGT83

    ok pd so where is the rest of the 2012 super gt cars? This includes 300s!! What a tease this is

  44. Cote Dazur

    Great news a better, improved GT5 and the abilty to buy 1,2 or 3 additional cars. Thank you. :-)

  45. MajinOLesedi

    YEAH!! No Collisions. So it will be ghost mode like in F1:CE?

  46. hazellnut134

    Just a question, can I continue my suspended
    Race after the update?

    • e30 freek

      Update is 5 days away you have enough time mate

    • Hmm, I also have a 24 ‘ring running with 7 hours left, and I dont have time the finish it the next 1½ weeks – So what happens when I resume the race in 1½ weeks?

    • e30 freek

      Dont have a clue sorry

  47. TokoTurismo

    Even though were getting a new DLC. At least theres an update that comes along with it. How long till the next DLC or something? Wish GT6 appeared. :(

  48. RandomCarGuy17

    Can’t wait to drive all of them, especially the BRZ.
    Ever sense PD updated GT5 and added the toyota 86 gt, I have been looking forward to it’s subaru counterpart. Of the 3, it’s my favorite.

    I don’t know that much about Super GT or JGTC, but that new Honda Race Car looks pretty cool, I’m curious now on how different it is from the NSX.

    As for the new N24 GT-R, it looks a lot different than the 2011 version, it probably performs different too since it looks more like a tuned GTR rather than a race car.

  49. magawolaz

    Nice!

  50. Gturbo5

    nice update, but no special dlc cars! =/

    Nissan GT-R N24 GT Academy ’12 – stop enough GTR!
    Subaru BR-Z S ’12 – like is same Toyota FT-86 why!
    Honda Weider HSV-010 (SUPER GT) ’11 – nothing happy!

  51. TokoTurismo

    I want that new GT-R in my garage, along with both Honda HSV-010 and Subaru BRZ. :)

    Others should relax though. You should by now that PD would make little DLC like this. Mind as well take it or leave it, and stop comparing it to Forza’s DLC please… We know which game has bigger DLCs.

    Like some parts in that update btw.

  52. Ra1kkoneN

    So how many BRZ’s do they plan on selling?

  53. Ra1kkoneN

    Meh…

  54. WTFnews

    to be honest, PD does not know how long i have been waiting for collisions off!!!!!!!

  55. e30 freek

    How much is one car in the U.K?

  56. Slant_7

    can’t wait to purchase the HSV-10

  57. Ingenting87

    nice finally some dlc. not the cars i wanted but ill take em.. thax PD

  58. e30 freek

    Only one car worth buying, im going a bit off topic because one of my mates told there’s a ps3 superslim coming soon! Woooooo

  59. Drevenger

    Check this out,
    software update the 25 sept.
    Probably available in PS store 2 weeks later.

    They should gave them free to apologizes for not having A new DLC car since january. .
    A couple of stickers or switching names is not considered new btw.

  60. ceiling_fan

    I’ll take what I can get. The game came out nearly 2 years ago so I’m thankful for any new content.

  61. Damn my lil brother called me and he told me about this and he said some new japanese race car is in the picture (he dont like cars but wanted to tell me) and I was like OMG Toyota TS030 Hybrid it gotta be…but :/

  62. Tommy_861

    “Response of the clutch pedal when using the steering wheel controllers “G25 Racing Wheel”, “G27 Racing Wheel”, “T500RS” and “TH8RS” has been adjusted.”

    FINALLY!!!

  63. The Honda HSV 010 is BEAUTIFUL. Finally!!!

  64. patriotzero

    Finally we get HSV

  65. TokoTurismo

    Sure, I’ll take this. Although, I wish we had the Event creator. :)

  66. pasigiri

    Thanks for the updates and DLC.

    *sigh*

    So anything on GT6??? I’m pretty much convinced GT5 is done.

  67. 2 better words for you…..who cares…….

  68. Well I also have both console. I will take 1 GT5 Premiun over 500 Forza 4 cars. I do speak with an open mind.

  69. I also have to wonder another thing… does the X2010/2011 count as a “formula car”?

    • Ganondorf

      I doubt it, I think it means cars that conform to real Formula regulations (e.g. F10, F2007) or are inspired by them, even if they aren’t necessarily accurately adhered to (FGT). GT5 normally refers to the FGT/F10/F2007 as Formula cars for those reasons. The X2010/X2011 falls into neither category, so I would guess not.

  70. UrieHusky

    Hmm.. anybody else concerned these changes to aerodynamics and suspension behavior will effect tuning significantly? it doesn’t really outline /how/ much it’s changed so I’m not too sure

    • A_Higher_Place

      I’m expecting disappointment but hoping for improvement.

    • UrieHusky

      On a side note, zero stuffs are given by me about the GTR and the Subaru, as I doubt either of them are different enough from the similar cars already in the game, but that honda.. I’m afraid I’m going to cave and buy car DLC after all

  71. Sonic_striker

    the brz is disappointing, but the other to are great!!

  72. ok, we got the HSV-010… Now where’s our NSX we got teased about a while back? lmao

  73. Those are nice cars, and those are nice software changes – what about more track maps?

  74. arveknudsen

    Surprise!! japanese cars..

  75. TheGTGuy

    I wrecking well see more HSVs in future gt5 DLC, I wreckon they seen the impatient comments about DLC and just put this together but I’m happy.

  76. A_Higher_Place

    Great news, something to keep me occupied for 1 night. I wonder if the HSV will blow every other GT500 away? Or will new regulations make it lag behind its older siblings?

    Also, is the new Ring GTR less powerful than the 2011 version? Sure looks like it.

  77. TheKitten

    Just Had Heart Attack This HONDA FINALLY:P

  78. Really? 3 cars of which 2 are already in the game for .99? I pass this one…

    • UrieHusky

      nono. 99 cents /each/. So if you only want the new honda just grab that. At least, that’s my plan.

    • A_Higher_Place

      Haha, I’m OCD when it comes to GT5 content. MUST HAVE IT ALL >:). Except for the stealth cars im missing D’:

    • UrieHusky

      I can relate, I’m OCD on completing all events. Even the ones I hate like the Kei car ones. But the DLC.. idk I’m not feeling it, the content to price point ration just isn’t worth it to me. I spent 70 odd dollars on project C.A.R.S so yeah, that kind of killed GT5s chances of dragging me in for DLC.. however.. Super GT cars are a soft spot with me :P

  79. hazellnut134

    WHOA THATS COOL!

  80. LVracerGT

    Honda looks great, but why did they adjust tire wear only in endurance races? The tire wear needs to be adjusted back to where it was for the entire game.

  81. HondaS800

    Took my breath away seeing the HSV-010. Thank you PD, thank you

  82. mr_pepps

    No sign of the good old tracks tho…was childishly hoping they’d appear before too long

  83. YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

  84. vale0220

    About time they fixed the tyre wear in indurance races, only being able to do 3 laps in an LMP car on a set of racing softs around le mans was ridiculous

    The other changes i like too, plus that Honda looks great

  85. AnPrionsaBeag

    I’ll buy it.

    PS: ウイダーinゼリー, “Weider in Jelly”, made me curious… :-p

  86. Whodoyouthink

    Wonder how tunes are going to be affected. Also, I’m a bit disappointed about the BRZ. I don’t need to point out why….I’ll still get the DLC though because the other 2 cars look sick.

  87. Louie_Schumii

    DLC isn’t really worth the buy unless you really want a rebranded GT86, another GT-R or a Super GT Honda.

  88. TheGTGuy

    Yes really happy and excited :)

  89. symustafa1996

    I expected the BRZ to be free, but oh well, 99 cents in actually not bad.

  90. Aleluya!!!!

  91. Tilemaxx

    I want to buy the Weider HSV with a different PSN account that has funds in, will it work with my main PSN account? They are both European, and my disc is Euro region, too.

  92. Skimblecat

    Sounds great, especially the aerodynamic fix.

  93. TrdScionxB2

    Hooray !!! DLC & a update!

  94. doyley101

    Sit back and watch the rage about the BRZ clone

  95. I’VE HAD A HEART ATTACK AAAAAAAAAAAAH HSV-010!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  96. R1600Turbo

    Yay for longer tire life.

  97. finnracer

    Looks quite nice, cars are well priced too! Still, cue the flaming…

  98. bigburt82

    Wow!!! TYhis is great news! Viva GT5!!

  99. Liamsles

    The new Honda looks good! Good to see about the tyre deg as well in Endurance race. All in all happy! Nice to see they’re working on it still.
