Gran Turismo 5’s Car Pack 3, Route X DLC Full Details

January 12th, 2012 by Jordan

The new GT5 downloadable content that leaked a few days ago was confirmed earlier today by the North American and European PlayStation Blogs, who provided a few more details and pricing information.

As expected, “Car Pack 3″ will include the following vehicles and will be available in the PlayStation Store for $5.99 (USD) / €5.99 / £4.79.

  • Nissan Leaf G 2011
  • Aston Martin V12 Vantage 2010
  • Volkswagen [Beetle] 1200 1966
  • Jaguar XJR-9 LM Racecar 1988
  • Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 2011
  • Mini Mini Cooper S Countryman (R60) 2011

The “Speed Test Course Pack” will also become available at that time for $3.99 (USD) / €3.99 / £3.19, which includes the Route X test course and an apparent new “Speed Test” mode that allows you to exactly measure “things like your mile, quarter-mile, acceleration, and g-force”.

The blogs also confirm you’ll be able to use Route X online, though it’s still not clear if this will enable formal online drag races as desired by many fans.

Polyphony Digital has also posted an online maintenance notice for 03:00 GMT on January 17th, so expect the 2.03 update to go live shortly thereafter.

As for the DLC’s availability, the North American PlayStation Blog confirms it will be available next Tuesday, January 17. However, the European blog re-iterates the original release date of Wednesday, January 18. As always, stay tuned to GTPlanet and our forums for specific, local availability information.

    sgllocal are you serious? the worst DLC yet? its the best DLC so far as far as i’m concerned, if you can’t afford a couple of quid then you need to give up your paper round and get a proper job, you proberbly don’t even have GT5, go back to your Xbox idiot boy.

      well @kollosson its not the BEST yet, we haven’t seen if they made a classic track pack, or a track pack with technical cars in it like for example Montreal, or Bathurst, or my local track (which is on Iracing) Summit Point Raceway.

    Why are people still complaining, now its about pricing ??? ….seeing as the premium cars in GT are better than any other game on console then 4 quid for me is nothing and your complaining about paying just over 3 quid for a track pack? i think its cheap as chips for what we are getting, Forza fanboys go home !

    how poor. probably the worst dlc yet. and i wont be buying it. we in uk are getting ripped of with the pricing. $3.99 does not = £3.19. one track which is a oval and more crap cars. jeez way to go pd

      Are you, ugh. It’s NOT PD who’s putting up the prices like that, and quit hating on the DLC big baby. Don’t buy then, simple as that…

    GT5 Japanese site: “Special Stage Route X Oval” a 12km straight on one side alone, boasts a total length 30km, is ideal for validating the performance of machines with a maximum speed limit, such as Red Bull X2010.

    Nice even though it makes me mad that once again the price in Europe is higher than elsewhere. Given it’s purely digital content that is simply a question of greed and nothing else (€5.99 = $7.69).

    I’m curious about that Jaguar Xjr-9. I hope that PDI puts the NON- le mans version in it, with smaller headlights.

    • Jan. 13, 4:53am
      Bom15

      I personally would prefer the Silkcut still. That livery on that car is an icon. The one your on about is probably the GTP car. Group 44 raced it in Castrol colours. TWR raced the Silkcuts. But both teams entered the cars for Le Mans in 88. I think the smaller lighted one was one of the modified cars. 6 new XJR-9’s were built. 2 others were built using the older XJR-6 and XJR-8 Chassis.

    • Jan. 16, 7:12pm
      chimuel

      @Bom15 There is a Silk Cut livery XJR-9 with smaller headlights. It’s the second image that shows up whenever I do a Google image search.

    They could’ve made a premium Veyron or a Veyron SS not a crappy Beetle for gods sake Polyphony move with logic just for once!!!

    Although I love that new Aventador and the Countryman. The Leaf is ok too.

      everyone has different opinions. I for one don’t really care for veyrons

    • Jan. 13, 9:08am
      Komojojo

      This doesn’t have to do anything about opinions, you need to be dead stupid to do so.

      Veyron is one of the most expensive and fastest cars on earth, how can that be a non-premium? It can when you have 0 logic. Cause it doesn’t make sense.

    • Jan. 13, 2:20pm

      It is about opinions u fool. You voiced yours and i’m saying mine.

    • Jan. 13, 5:05pm
      TokoTurismo

      @Komojojo Okay, the veyron is “the most expensive and fastest cars on earth”. Yet it lacks it’s cornering ability, it’s better for straightaways. AND it’s the fastest car to “burnout gas, melt it’s tires quickly at high speed, this car will cost you so much money. There was more my auto body Teacher told me and the class. From that day, I just laughed at the car. How sad, hahaha.

    • Jan. 14, 3:40am
      SZRT Ice

      Lol, if you took some time to put some thought into it, you’d realize that PD/Sony put a lot of thought into it. The cost/licensing for an Aventador, Buggatti, or any other super/hyper car for that matter will likely be higher than that of a standard street car. Many people are buying the DLC solely for the Aventador and Aston. Some just for the Aventador. Most wouldn’t pay $6 for the Aventador alone, yet bundled with some other cars it psychologically seems more worth it. It’s a selling point, sell one or 2 highly desired cars with a few less desired ones, appeal to a bigger audience, bring in the bucks. if they sold a ALL “Highly Demanded Vehicles” DLC, and followed it with a DLC of all classic cars, then all GT cars, etc., everyone would only get exactly what they like and nothing more. This model helps them snag more customers, getting people to buy DLC they may not fully like, and justify their pricing. They know if you want it, you’ll buy it. So blend them to better “inspire” you to buy them all…

    Awesome DLC packs this time that PDI put together.

    A shame that Sony is still shafting the EU customers by asking more money from them (again). It’s only a relative small difference of course, but if they do that with every DLC, it quickly adds up.

  16. Jan. 13, 2:50am
    SavageEvil

    PD has nothing to do with pricing…that is Sony right there. PD is owned by Sony so Sony sets the prices and to keep it from being looked at as being too cheap it follows the general law of never being priced low. You will get bundle deals but that’s it. This isn’t that expensive, 10 dollars total not bad. I don’t care for the cars as much as I do a new course. But they seriously need to start upping the amount of courses available for DLC. I would love more tracks, I have so many cars right now I didn’t buy the last car pack because I still haven’t driven a single car from the first car pack as yet, lol. I am having way too much fun in my standard cars with their new wheels. Go figure, I love the less detailed cars in the game, premiums look awesome but to me they are soulless compared to the standards which have been constantly been worked on :). Sure my reasoning is odd but I don’t care, i love me some standard cars. Hey PD how about a better paint shop at least for the premium cars…or something that allows us to apply those interesting liveries that PD somehow always has for any car they send out as DLC.

    • Jan. 13, 6:19am
      TokoTurismo

      No no no you are right. I have lots of fun with the standards aswell. :)

    rumblina

    AUD$7 or $8 (depending on exchange rate) for 5 reasonable cars and one crappy one is not too bad from my perspective. AUD$5 or so for a single track that on the other hand. The biggest thing to take out of all of it is; if you don’t want to pay the money for it, no one is forcing you to :)

  18. Jan. 13, 1:33am
    Raitziger

    Price of DLC will always be tens of times more expensive compared to the content delivered in full game.
    To me these prices are like nothing. I mean that is couple of bear cans!!!
    Of course it does add up in total , but that is DLC if you want it. Also do not cry for DLC pricing if you bought collector or signature edition :D

    What PD does wrong is selling us too little packets. Also they might need to reduce prices to get even more money. They already made over 1M$ with fist pack. In simple calculation that is about 56 person months of work time. (used corporate cost factor 3.0 and average coder salary of 5833 $. )

      I would much rather have a Ferrari 250 GTO or Ferrari Dino 246 GT than an F50 please! F50 is the poor cousin of the F40 and Enzo.

    • Jan. 14, 3:19am
      SZRT Ice

      I like the F50 very much, as well as the FXX. Ascari’s would be cool, as well as The Gumpert Apollo, Koenigsegg CCX/CCXR, Zonda’s, and Ultimate Areo.

      But honestly, GT needs more TRACKS. Rally, Classic, Drag, City, Landscape, Fantasy, W/e… We need like a 10 track DLC to give us some variation!!!

    Drag racing, like the nascar-nonsense is strictly for americans and does note make any sense in a video game. I hope they will sell those stupid Drag-cars in single dlc’s and not with real cars.

      Not a big fan of either Drag or NASCAR. But GT5 is all about giving a taste of everything, so why not?

      @larsh Stop your ignorant garbage, if you don’t like it fine. Don’t pour your ignorance all over this community, drag racing I assure you isn’t simple takes just as much focus even more so than circuit racing, same with NASCAR(stock car) racing. I have this feeling that you can’t handle anything with more than 255hp in this game…real cars pfft. Please list what you consider a real car…perhaps I would be able to sympathize with your cause.

    So people rather pay for something that gets put into the game already and make it DLC? WOW, are they ever sad… QUIT WHINING IF THIS IS TOO MUCH FOR YOU… I really do feel bad for Kaz and PD of what they’re doing for us is something special. So VERY sad complainers, for just money. Jeez…

  23. Jan. 12, 11:27pm
    TRT18

    BooHoo, why whinge so much. PD is supplying us with further reason to continue to plat this game and they are making constant improvments. Yet some of the comments are so negative. If you cannot afford to spens $10.00 on such a good
    package, get a paper run or something. I know of few other developers who actually listen and respond to their product users
    requests and wishes.

    The new track looks good, new cars are always welcome additions to the game even if the Nissan Leaf is a little not my style.
    But all the same I will purchase both packs and have a hoot both with the new cars and the new track.

    This game is meant to be enjoyed for a long time, not like some others that are over and done with in 8 hours or less. Make the most and stop your complaning. If you don’t want to pay than don’t. No one is forcing you to purchase the packs, are they?

    Unfortenatly we live in a world where things cost money. Someone somewhere has to produce this content. I’m sure that none of us would like to work for free just to satisfy some kid who has no intention of getting of his/hers butt and earn a bit of coin to feed their hobby. Life is tough get used to it.

    Pd, thank you for keeping the game fresh and interesting. I will continue to purchase content and if you ever see fit to include some Australian v8supercars as primiums and maybe the iconic track known as Barthurst I will be very ready to part with more coin. Just let me know how much!

    Really annoying to see the 5 percent of people that post here that depend on welfare. I don’t think they understand that the employees at PD don’t work for free. There is something called supply and demand going on here, feel free to google it so you understand how a business works. If you think what PD is doing is BS then don’t buy the DLC, it’s pretty simple. The rest of us that want DLC and have jobs/or other means of getting money to buy it will do so. If you had any clue the amount of work that goes into bringing these cars to the console then you would know your not getting ripped off.

      @ PS3LUV3R.

      Why do say it will never come to GT5? I’m nobody special. But i’ve seen the Reventon roadster running in all its glory. Theres rarer cars in GT5 than a reventon. Like chaparall 2J, Jaguar XJ13 for example. Both cars only 1 was made. My point is he gets around abit. SEMA, Pebble Beach & Goodwood Festival of Speed are the ones i know he’s been to. In fact i saw him driving the Jaguar at Goodwood. Going to these kind of places and being the man he is. You gonna make alot of contacts. If he wants in the game and Lamborghini let it. It’ll be in the game.

    I hope PD releases a trailer that showcases the new track. The last track DLC was easier to sell; Kart Space is so exciting and original, while Spa is one of the world’s greatest racetracks.

    The car pack lives up to my expectations: a deal clincher (Aventador), two solid additions (V12 Vantage and Mini Countryman), a few worthless cars which only appeal to a few people (Beetle and Leaf) and a random race car (XJR-9).

    I will definitely buy the car pack. Honestly, if you can’t afford a $6 car pack, then how the hell could you afford the game in the first place? Just be thankful that you aren’t paying for another damn GT-R.

    Here are a few cars for PD to include in the future:

    2011 Ferrari FF
    2013 Ford Mustang Boss 302
    2012 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor
    2011 BMW 1M Coupe
    2012 BMW M5
    2012 Mercedes C63 AMG Black Series
    2011 Ariel Atom Mugen
    2011 Mazda RX-8 R3
    2012 Lotus Exige S (V6)
    And how ’bout that Acura NSX concept from the movie trailer? Hmmmmmm?

    • Jan. 12, 10:48pm
      jah24car

      well i’m not much for standard to premium i rather have more new fresher models that we’re missed like idk a Bugatti super sport, camaro zl1, NASCAR Dodge Charger, Dodge charger from this year, the Lamborghini Reventon, and hell even the BMW M3 pickup.

      2012 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor – I don´t see it, only cos Forza has it?
      2011 BMW 1M Coupe – Awesome Car

      2012 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor – Car Town has it. So it possibly could be in it
      2011 BMW 1M Coupe – Agreed
      2012 BMW M5 – Ugly, Don’t like the computer rubbish. I’d prefer an E28 or an M1
      2012 Mercedes C63 AMG Black Series – Don’t like Mercedes personally either. Unless its a 1955 300SLR
      2011 Ariel Atom Mugen – Aeriel Atom V8 plz. Might as well go mental
      2011 Mazda RX-8 R3 – probably in the future anyway.
      2012 Lotus Exige S (V6) – Agreed. Or the old Elise GT1

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Is this Activision? Feels like i’m playing Call of Duty (4 maps/$15).

    Some good things in the DLC, but it’s way to much for what it is.

    Some of you may say it’s only $10, but in total (for now) this game cost about $90.. Great thing I didn’t get the collector with the small car and that book, which must have cost ­$2 for the car to make and about $1,50 to print the book (china is that cheap when it comes to printing (and quality is A1)).

    this is plain stupid. Just work on GT6, and this time, please release a complete game, not something you’re still working on after more than a year it’s been released. jeez

      Ur paying for the name m8 and the Gaming companies make this money to pay car companies to allow these vehicles cause you need 1. licensing, 2. the money to pay the company a certain amount 3. dlc gets paid for your company is still running 4. car companies are paid their amount for the use, 5. the time it took to digitize the cars and tracks, and 6. its just 5 for the cars I don’t care much for the track but with a 20 buck psn i could get both and some

  31. Jan. 12, 10:37pm
    jah24car

    The price don’t bother me really cause if its $5 its ok cause i know dlc that cost more just for a car in some other games, or a map, but its the companies name and the car companies your buying, its to get PD and Sony more money so they can pay car companies such as Aston, Lamborghini, and other who make money off game companies to get their cars into a game, and the more money going to these companies help fund the next game or dlc, so why complain!

With all the wasted money I would’ve been better off buyin another PS3 plus XL Ed. and future dlc GT5 at least until “End of Word” ;) in december. lol. xbox wrks now as decoration only pickin up dust, only usefull about it were livery editor and shooting pics of cars that arent in GT5.

      rather see Holdens and Vauxhalls more v8 supercars, but we do have a premium supra the Toyota supra 88 and the Toms Supra, both premium, but if u want the 90s model or a new model but knowing new models look worse then originals, except Dodge Challengers and camaros they look nice new and refreshed but the 2000 Camaro is just ugly!!

    • Jan. 13, 2:04pm
      Bom15

      Many opels are vauxhalls. Mostly after the 70’s i think. Opel Kadetts ended up being Vauxhall Astras. Early opel Mantas were Vauxhall Firenza’s and later it was a vauxhall cavalier. Opel Calibra and vauxhall Calibra are the same. 1980’s opel corsa was a vauxhall Nova. then Vauxhall started using the Corsa name. The OPC Version was tuned by VXR (Vauxhall Racing). Opel Reckord is a Vauxhall Carlton. Opel Omega was also a carlton. Then vauxhall used the Omega name. You get my drift.
      Most opels are rebadged Vauxhalls. For the UK market. Australia they were rebadged as Holdens. In America some were called Saturns. Others were called Buicks.

    • Jan. 13, 4:53pm
      Flaco13

      Jah you can’t quite say “they aren’t like Vauxhalls at all!” Because most models are, i believe ur refering to those Vauxhalls that are rebadged Holden Monaro’s and Commodore’s, its sad but true those great Holdens never made it to the rest of europe. Yet you can have a peace of Aussie Spirit by purchasing a Bitter. Its a Opel tuner, they took a Commodore HSV w427 and run em under Bitter in Germany. also tuned an Insignia using the 427′ s engine might be wrong bout that tho but i think i’ve read it.

      Bom u say “Most opels are rebadged Vauxhalls” can’t agree here, i’d say its the other way around for they all been designed and assembled in Ruesselsheim wich is the Opel headquarter, tho i’m sure the british designers and all bring in their ideas as well. No matter Opel Vauxhall or Holden they are all sister brands under General Motors.

      Glad we mentioned them tho… PD you see us??? lets hope

      Bom15

      ok. whichever way round it is u know my point. There GM’s. there we go. But you are wrong when u say all are built in Ruesselsheim. Vauxhall has 2 manufacturing plants in the UK. One in Luton (Vauxhalls HQ) & another in cheshire. Luton now concentrates in Commercial vehicles. Cheshire the car side. But Lutons had problems over the past few decades with job cuts etc. And chesires nearly been closed recently to. So nowadays yes a high proportion of Opels/Vauxhalls are built in Ruesselsheim also Spain and Poland. But Luton has a long history of making Vauxhalls.

    • Jan. 15, 2:06am
      Flaco13

      Bom sure i got your point.

      I never said they were all built in Russelsheim, but the designes and plans on how they will look b4 put on the market was made there. Of course Vauxhall builts their cars in britan since it’s for the british market. Well some parts might be shipped from one place to another to finish them where the rest is built, dunno.

      In germany they have more than one fabric, Bochum, Kaiserslautern and in the east (forgot the name). They were facing similar problems at that time (Antwerp in Belgium was closed shortly after) btw the yellow banner we all see in gt5 when passing the Karousel was placed there by the fabric workers (it is not an advertisement) it states ‘We are Opel’ as they were protesting against possible shut down of the Kaiserslautern fabric back then.

    PD must have known this route X test track is an essential part of the game and should be included since ver 1.0. They included test track in the previous GT series and knew that gamers love it. But what can we say, its 2012 now when gaming world are capable of downloading DLC to extend the contents of games. So why bother releasing full version of GT when PD can wait until they make millions of sale then BOOM! make extra profit from the DLC.

    Now we have just to wait for Car pack 3,4,5,10 … and DLC 3, 4, 20.. LOL

    As much as I like GT5, it’s becoming a bit pricey and since it’s a huge success, they will keep selling small car packs like that for 4-5 dollars.

    I’ve already paid 110$ Canadian for the Collector’s edition, I bought Spa and I’m close to buying car pack #2, I’ll buy #3 because of the Beetle and I’ll buy for sure Route X.

I mean, something that could be used everytime to race in lobbies yknow not something that could run 20kph topspeed… But I guess it’s my personal preference too.

    My eyes started to bleed when I read the previous thread about this DLC. People think this is the second coming of Jesus, seriously get real. I see people typing responses like, “You’ve got my money PD! :)” So you prefer to pay for something that’s in the game? I go under the car dealership and I don’t have any of this DLC and I see the Golf R sitting there, oh man I would like it but I have to buy it even though it was in the previous patch? People think you get these cars from the PSN store. Yeah, sure they come in the patches. You’re paying for a code to unlock it by the way.

    • Jan. 12, 6:42pm

      So what you’re saying is that you prefer to download the car? What’s the difference with buying the code to unlock the car and downloading the car? Nothing. What’s the big deal?

    • Jan. 12, 6:56pm
      xNeroZero

      The deal with this is purchasing content that should be in the game. This game cost 60 dollars new right? there’s been 3 of these packages. The first one costing around 10 dollars the second 5 dollar and this upcoming one costing 10 dollars. That is 85 dollars that you blind people have invested into this game. By the end of this game’s life you’ve probably invested well over 200 dollars. That is what I have the problem with these days with video game developers. Everyone is trying to follow Call of Duty’s way of extorting money out of their customers. I give Kaz kudos for not coming out with DLC right on the spot like that horrible racing game you call Forza 4.

      honestly i prefer how PD uses the patches to sneak the DLC into our consoles unlike other producers that ALREADY had the DLC hidden within the disk since release
      when i buy Forza DLC i find waiting for the DLC to install was quite a bit irritating
      by putting it in our game files with a patch they can give the contents of the DLC to us RIGHT AFTER we purchase it

    • Jan. 12, 7:08pm
      Bom15

      XNeroZero. Your point is pretty stupid imo. PD’s DLC is NEW content. They are not in the game already as you have stated. It makes sense to me if there going to release a patch/update for the game anyway, to add the new content along with it. Otherwise the downloads from the store would take a lot longer. This is stuff we have asked for after the games was released. What would you prefer EA, for example, releasing NFS and DLC on the same day? Charging for content that is in the game to start with. Not listen you to your feedback. Ignoring bugs within there games. Or PD? Who do listen, create/add new content we asked for and try to fix bugs?

      Not sure what your problem with buying DLC is but ive only just got the first 2 packs and i love them…..you say the cars shouldve been in there in the first place but having over a 1000 cars to play with in the beginning is more than enough. People make requests on here and PD listen and release new cars tracks etc and still people moan….if you dont like the packs simply dont buy them and miss out on stuff that other people want rather than bloody moan about it. I wanted more Astons and Lambo’s but im perfectly happy with what they put in from day 1

      They release the DLC cars in the patches for more efficiency – If the cars weren’t in the patches, it would take a VERY long time to download them. Also, it allows you to preview the cars, basically advertising them – seriously, if I didn’t know about GTPlanet and GT5 didn’t have the cars in the dealership, I probably wouldn’t have noticed them; PSN hasn’t advertised the GT5 DLC in the “Whats New” section as far as I’ve seen, and I almost never look at the “News” section in the GT home. Also, PD wanted 2 more years to complete the game, but Sony forced the release after so many delays. If they HAD finished the game, MOST LIKELY the game would have NO standard-model cars, maybe a better damage system, probably more tuning options (Including visuals/aero packs), and most tracks would have weather and day/night functions, and with this, probably better leader boards and drifting/drag/rally functionality. And they didn’t release the DLC so late because of the “not following CoD” crap, its partly because of the giant earthquake in Japan, and just trying to get as much content and fixes as possible after the release, to make up for the unfinished game. They gave us a CRAP load of free cars a while back, like those 2011 NASCARS, and the GT-R Kaz drove in the Nurburg 24 HR, then update 2.02 gave us a free Toyota FT-86, we may get a free NSX Concept, but I have no idea whats going on with that car.

      @Bom15:
      I’ve just said a bunch of what you said, but I TOTALLY agree with your statement about EA vs. PD; “What would you prefer EA, for example, releasing NFS and DLC on the same day? Charging for content that is in the game to start with. Not listen you to your feedback. Ignoring bugs within there games. Or PD? Who do listen, create/add new content we asked for and try to fix bugs?”. I don’t think you, xNeroZero, have had GT5 for very long, based on your statements. But its just how you come off, I’m not saying you haven’t.

      @ Quack:
      As far as I can tell… The DLC is included in the updates and you can only unlock it via paying for it. (I came to this conclusion because you dont actually download anything when click on the “downloadable content”…. and people who didnt pay for SPA can still use it if the lobby leader has it)
      I would agree with the long wait for DLC is because they had to finish the game first and wanted to sort out all the bugs and add the most wanted features first.

      They still have a huge amount of people downloading the DLC – so I doubt this has hurt them much at all.

    Pagani pack: Zonda F, Zonda Cinque, Zonda tricolore, huayra.

    xD that would have been awesome. but im glad getting the aventador and the track, now the problem is…last time a big update came avaible. it messed up my game…and i had to redownload all the updates again… hope it doesnt weight more than 100mb…but i doubt it :( gotta check my PSN acount too. i just hope i have enough for the cars at least :D PD KEEP THE GOOD WORK!

      The story of GT5 players. Completely opposite point-of-views, but in the end, GT started off as a way to let people drive family cars on a race track. maxpontiac’s first car was a Beetle. He said that somewhere and I found it FAN-tastic. I’m thinking it was even the same year because he was pretty ecstatic. Gotta remember to ask him.

      Um….yes. It’s common logic to have to pay for a DLC from my perspective. Few DLC packs are being given for free. dont forget that PD is a company and they’re doing already more than enough updating the game. Have you ever thought of this?:
      1) Seasonals could be regular DLC challenges available for download with more XP and cr than normal races
      2) We could have an Online Pass, thus preventing potential buys of used GT5 copies.
      3) Daily bonus 200% could be a feature unlocked to those who have purchased DLC packs only.

      @userme5 I was afraid I was gonna be laughted at. But thats what I think, for instance:

      DiRT3: Immediately after game is released, new car packs. Also, you cannot complete the game without getting the X games challenge in Asia -> rediculous
      NFS games (in general): Releasing A TON of cars after the game is released, plus the Online Pass

      Thats the two most extravaggant examples I can think of. On the other hand, PD:

      Releases regular updates, fixing errors.
      Releases DLC packs only improving the game, not just adding.
      Our producer is a PROFESSIONAL RACING DRIVER ALSO PARTICIPATING IN 24H RACES.

      @pauloSandar
      It seems all of your comments have been explained, except for the last one. I will gladly explain it; PD wanted two more years of development for GT5, but Sony forced the release after all of the delays. If PD didn’t announce a release date so early, they might have gotten more chances for delays, and more time to finish the game. (Although, they might have been less active towards all of the updates and DLC…)

    • Jan. 12, 7:50pm
      AERO_HDT

      I’m a bit mixed on the DLC. I have no real issue paying for it (us Aussies get SHAFTED with the exchange rate, even though our dollar is higher than the greenback). I pay to support PD, I think they are the FIRST PS3 developer to actually put serious effort into updates, a lot like PC-developers do (numerous patches over the life of the game). But DLC content is now approaching $40 in total for me and that’s a bit high, considering the game itself can be bought for $30.

      I paid $300 quid for the Signature Edition and that’s a heck of a lot of money, I would have hoped that such a commitment would have entitled me to some free DLC content, but as it turns out, you can buy an XL edition of the game for about 50 bucks and get $20 worth of free DLC.

      PD’s pricing and marketing needs to be looked at for GT6, because I won’t be buying a Signature Edition again. A little model, a couple of books and 5 cars wasn’t really worth it.

    • Jan. 12, 8:25pm
      another_jakhole

      @AERO_HDT

      If you live in Australia and you buy a special edition of anything, you better know exactly what you’re getting so you don’t regret it. I see what you mean about GT5 XL being released at a cheap price while including everything that’s happened in the past year. But, it’s not like someone said, “I’ll wait over a year for the XL edition of GT5, because I know it’s value is worth more of my money.” If someone knew about that and did that, I don’t think they can be considered even remotely a fan of GT. Buying GT5’s Signature Edition WHILE living in Australia means you must be a huge fan, but if you regret getting it, I think it’s more your fault than anyone else’s. Personally, I would have paid for the Signature Edition for the books and game alone. If it were simple enough, I’d buy the books separately, right now.

    • Jan. 12, 8:48pm

      @ AERO_HDT

      5 cars? Don’t you mean 11? 6 Stealth and 5 chromelines? Only issue i had was giving the stealth’s out for free cos of PD Americas mess up (1st DLC i believe?). And the fact that my GT5 USB Sticks write protected itself. But I am still pleased with my signature edition overall. I didn’t just buy mine for the extra cars. The main book, wallet & USB (Until its protection issue) are all very handy. And the models a nice addition to my collection. The other problem with your proposal of free DLC to Signature Edition buyers is. How they gonna know who bought which version? Also why haven’t PD made the SLS Model in game? They did the R35 and gave that out twice. Twice for europeans anyway.

    • Jan. 12, 9:14pm

      @AERO_HDT:
      If you compare the prices of the DLC for some of the NFS games, (Which are REALLY sucking now…) the prices aren’t so bad; and PD has given us a bunch of free stuff which could have been DLC, so that, in a sense, makes up for a little bit of the DLC prices. Here; NFS Hot Pursuit 2010; DLC packs in total (not including time savers) adds up to around 30 – 40 USD. (There’s 4 packs total)

    • Jan. 14, 2:13pm
      SZRT Ice

      $10 is currently 1/4 the price of the entire game. Also, take into account that Kaz would have liked 2 more years to “work on” GT5, you realize most of this DLC would have made it in the game for free. Thus, it’s not really DLC, but them finishing GT5 and getting paid extra for it. (W/e, still new content, so I don’t mind spending a lil’ extra cash for it) But to pay 1/4 the price of the game currently (Mind you, with XL, you’ll getta voucher for 20 in DLC), The GT loyal are kinda getting jipped with thes prices.

    The only thing missing in GT5 now, in my humble opinion, is a REAL drag aspect, with a fully-featured tree and supporting elements, like charts and tweaks, etc.
    It’s nice to have the new test track, but if it’s only TESTING for drag – it’s still not drag racing.

    I’m going to snatch it as it comes up in store, but I hope we will ultimately have a Complete drag racing aspect in GT5.

    • Jan. 12, 5:51pm

      Fingers crossed. Considering this test track is a lot more visually pleasing than the old test tracks, I think this just might be used for legitimate drag races.

    • Jan. 12, 5:55pm
      another_jakhole

      than the old test course(). singular and it wasn’t exactly a track back then.

      Oh and it has day-night transitions it appears. Why would a sole test track/course have that? I think its a bit wasteful if people aren’t able to drag race on it. Maybe it’s be a freedom thing, because people will for sure use it to drag race. The time change really just might be there to make it all feel like a meet.

      Because the Jaguar won at le mans and dominated the IMSA GTP and world championship. They beat Porsche who had at that point won the 81, 82 ,83 ,84 ,85 ,86 & 87 Le mans races with 956’s and 962’s. Also it completed the most of amount of laps along with the Porsche 917k until the Audi R15 came along 20 years later. And i think it was a non-turbo during the time when turbo’s where used everywhere. I don’t think Toyota have won Le Mans. 1988 with the 88CV they came 12th and 24th. 1989 all 3 failed to finish. They got 9th in 1998 and 2nd in 1999 in the GT-one.

      What ruins the BMW M5 F10. 1 the way it looks and 2 all of the computer rubbish. I want a real car lke A TVR Sagaris. No TC, ABS or anything. Purely down to the driver. If they did put a new M5. Then i would prefer the first Gen E28. An M1 of any description, 3.0CSL Batmobile, 507, 328 would also be my choice before an F10. A morris Marina isn’t a good car. Its only a classic cos of its age. Nothing special. The Kadett though. I would love to have The Kadett C rally car and a Manta 400. The Aston your talking about. DB5 maybe? I’m sure GT5 had either a DB5 or DB6 in the past. Hopefully it’ll make its return. Just like The Cobra Daytona Coupe should make a return.

      Well isnt that more fun and down to the driver then and not the machine… it will go down to whos got the quickest reactions like in proper drag racing

      You could have a much quicker car but if you get treed you’ll lose

    I’m excited for this, other than the Leaf and the Beetle. Why would I want to race either of those cars? There’s 100 other cars I’d pick before those – like how about a new Mustang Boss 302, Charger SRT-8, Aston DBS, etc.

      yeah i really see no logic there…the beetle ok, its a classic…but the leaf? i mean come on…we allrdy have a prius, and thats one too many(unfortunately we have 3: the premium, the tc and a standard one, so that makes 3 too much)

      the leaf is a major step in the automotive world, as i believe its the first production car to run entirely on electricity thats affordable to everyone (unlike the tesla). the leaf is a pretty cool car imo. so, theres the reason as to why it made its way into the game.

      The Nissan Leaf received the “Car Of The Year” award in Japan. PD works with NIssan, so im guessing something like “….yes, we are interested in your upcoming DLC for Gran Turismo 5, but you should include one of our cars, prefferably the Leaf for being car of the year”, or something like that. Maybe Kaz picked it himself, I dunno.

      Im just trying to find possible reasons so as to not look so bad. It’s not like im buying the Car Pack 3 for the Leaf, I would like to have some electric car races online though. We dont even know what kind of modifications the Leaf has available (if it has any).

    • Jan. 12, 5:52pm
      userme5

      true, however the electric cars at this time are far from being fast and practical, they dont have alot of range and in most places you cant use it for longer trips because no gas stations have plug ins for electric cars yet…not saying its a bad car, just far from the ideal sports car dlc you would like to see in a game :P

    • Jan. 12, 6:06pm
      fourliter

      The answer to why the Leaf is in is in the replys here, if you put them together:

      – Nissan and PD have a close relationship.
      – There is 4 different Pruises, plus at least 2 Insights and 3 CR-Zs, and the Tesla.

      That’s at least 10 hybrids or electrics that I can think of. If I were Nissan, I’d say “That’s enough GT-Rs for now. Toyota, Honda and Tesla have all their hybrids and electrics in GT. We’ve spent a ton of time and money developing the Leaf, let’s get it in the game”.

      That’s a good point. I would say that there are more people that KNOW GT and have stuck with it, than there are new GT players, though. The huge amount of early sales helps prove that point, I would hope.

      @fourliter… you are right, they are other electric/hybrids car out there, but none of them are zero-emissions vehicle, the Nissan Leaf is the first of its kind….. unfortunately to drive one of these you need to have an electric charging station (at least one in the city where you leave)…. I am anxious to see how the pitstop will be with the Leaf, maybe PD have included an electric charging station…. that will be interesting?

    • Jan. 14, 4:39am
      Chargerpower

      Spot on, man. I guess PD does not mind putting in some funky choices for cars….think about what you can already find inside the used car lot. For example…Honda Odyssey!? Or the Prius? Seriously… Maybe they think it’s funny.
      I used to own a 2010 Charger SRT 8 and I am honestly surprised it did not make it in GT5. It would make a fun car to mod and drive.
      I would only get excited about the Leaf if there was a mod that would let me swap the engine with anything that would fit in it…can you imagine? lol

      The beetle was one of the most important cars in history. It deserves to be premium in my opinion. GT is about cars in general and there history. If it was up to me i’d have the Ford Model T, 1886 Benz’s back in the game. Not because of there amazing performance (yes i’m joking). But because of the significance in the history of the automobile.

    a lot more expensive comparing to the 1st DLC.. bad move imo

    • Jan. 12, 7:19pm
      RACECAR

      How? How is the current $5.99 for the car pack more expensive then the $7.99 from the First one? Likewise, the price on the Speed Test Pack is exactly the same as the first track pack at $3.99

    • Jan. 12, 8:48pm
      lespaulguy

      @RACECAR the $7.99 car pack contained about 15 cars, thus making it much better value as you got more cars for your money. The track pack contained 2 tracks for the same price as this one, also doubling the value over this DLC. So they’ve increased the price of their DLC’s by twice as much. Not only that, you got a discount if you bought the DLC packs in one bundle edition – here you get no discount.

      With that said, I LOVE this DLC and thank you PD for bringing us some amazing cars. As excited as I am for the Aventador and the Jag, what I really love is the inclusion of another premium Aston, which hasn’t gotten the love it deserves here. The DB9 is a bit too slow, the V12 Vantage should be amazing, thanks so much PD. I think this is a step in the right direction for the DLC. But please, if you’re going to charge $10 US could we at least get another track or a couple more cars? I’m not made of money!! But i’m not complaining, I’ll still buy this pack, thank you thank you PD

    • Jan. 13, 3:30am

      Why the premium beetle? :P i dont get why people like that car :D the aventador is really good…however id preffer the superleggera just cus i like it more :P and the speed test thing is good because now you can actually measure your 0-100kp/h/0-60mp/h times :D

    • Jan. 12, 5:41pm
      fourliter

      @userme5 Just like the SambaBus, the Beetle will be fun to customize. It’s also not a direct replacement for the existing standard ’49 Beetle, the new one’s a ’66. The ’49 was only really ever seen in post-war Germany, the ’66 was on every street in America. The ’49 Beetle is fun to drive fully tuned, the ’66 should be even more so.

      It’s still one of the most-produced cars in history, so it’s very familiar to many people. The Aventador is cool and all, but what makes GT great is the mix of exotics and “everyday” cars that we all know and love.

    • Jan. 12, 5:46pm

      oh yeah didnt even notice that :O must be getting old :P yeah i tuned it, but i preffer the 2CV cus that has a better sound :P got the beetle up to 180kph :D and about the everyday cars, id like to see cars like the new vw(they did that:scirocco and new golf), opels(like the astra b&w the GT), cars like that…

      +100 userme5 I´m an Opel fan so sure I´d die for having them in GT5.

      But I guess you don´t actually have to Love them or any Brand in particular to agree on there´s still alot of every day cars missing, and we´re looking forward to get some of them in dlc soon.

      For me I just hope Opel / GM and PD come together to modell new and old Opels to implement. Seeing myself someday in the future taking on the Nordshleife in a Manta i400. Oh boy, I´m close to tears!

      @Flaco13 What I was refering to was that if you read some reviews or look at some videos online about the Aventador you`d see how awesome the car is. Even over at Evo one of the test drivers touted it as the best supercar to date not just a Lamborghini. It posted an number 3 spot on Topgears race track out pacing even the mighty Bugatti Super sport. So when I saw the post of “they could of picked a better supercar’. I just found it amusing because after he wrote “VW Beetle” he used an exclamation point. So this is what makes this game so appealing because it seems there is a car for everyone`s tastes. BTW i’m not trying to be smart just wanted you to understand what i meant and that I respect GReeK_W1ZaRd’s opinion because my post was to him. hope this clears it up, Btw can u put picks of your personal car on your profile?

      Its new content at the end of day. Unlike say EA, Codemasters etc etc. Selling you content in game already for extra cash. I don’t think its that bad. The track is a bit high.

    • Jan. 12, 6:28pm

      I don’t really see how this is too pricey. I think $1 per car is quite good value really. For me in NZ it’ll be more like $2 per car though but I’m still happy with that.

    • Jan. 12, 8:27pm
      bypo

      If this continues like it is, 4€, 5€ for 4 to 6 cars and some more € for tracks, in a few months we will spend the same a amount that we paid for the game with 1000 cars, and a lot of tracks. They should keep them coming, but for example: IF WE BOUGHT THE WHOLE CAR PACK, MAKE IT A BIT CHEAPER THAN BUY 1 CAR EACH TIME. HOWEVER, the person who just likes 2 cars from that pack can bought them individually and doesnt need to spend some more money on cars that they will never use..
      I bought the last car pack i havent yet tried the new mini. I think this is common sense guys.. Not everybody has so much money to spend as they want us to. Look at codemasters DLC.

      Just for those who think i am complaining, i agree that this DLC is very good indeed. I will buy the whole thing… But the last 2, i wouldn’t.. :/

      Don´t you guys think, that those prices are far too expensive? 4 for a track? What do wee need to pay, if all the remastered tracks from GT4 are coming? 60€ again?

That Mini…I don’t get it – not attractive car (They could pick VW beetle 2012). Why Nissan Leaf?? Probably because the GT-Rs complains and propaganda to help sell that Leafs. Next DLC we might get the UGLY Nissan Juke (It’s so painful to see that car on streets LOLOL – Juke’s owners will be mad at me =)) Sorry.

      @madracer: The Nissan Leaf is part of the DLC because it received the “Car of the Year Japan 2011-2012″ award. The award was announced at the 42nd Tokyo Motor Show on December 3rd.

      The Nissan Leaf sold an amazing 20,000 units in 2011. Deliveries for USA and Canada will start early 2012. Some limited trial test are currently undergoing in Quebec (By Hydroquebec) and Ontario to review the car performance under wintery conditions as well as electric charging stations tested by some cities. European countries that have taken deliveries of their cars include: UK, Spain, Norway, Netherlands. Japan is at full scale deployment. The Nissan Leaf marketing has been so far limited to countries whose government offer tax credits on electric car purchases as well as development of charging stations. For that reason, Nissan explains that it will take probably until 2013 to reach deployment at full global scale.

      The Leaf is a unique zero-emission vehicle and it includes a sophisticated IT system that can be accessed by remote control via mobile phones. By 2020, the FIA will start to support electric car races in some of their GT categories.

    • Jan. 13, 11:54am
      Tvensky

      I agree, 1$ for a car and 4$ for a track is way too much, If I buy new GT5 I get 250+ premium cars, and 25+ tracks , and 10 000 great features and gameplay! and then millions of gamers and fans buy the game giving PD and SONY alot of cash…

      But when DLC arrives, its like 4$ for a track then it seems like its only10 tracks for 40$ (thats the full game price you know)
      not very good and does look like rip off, just like COD is doing selling 2 old and 3 new multyplayer maps for 15$, that is the reason why I stopped playing it and start to hate…

      anyway GT isnt something I will hate ever, GT series is the main reason why I buyed PS3, and I will respect PD forever for what they have done.. but those DLC… at least 5 new tracks and 20 cars for 15$ is ok…. but 1 track for 4$ is not ok. and 6 cars for 6$ is even bigger not ok.. from my point of view tracks are way more important since GT does not have much, but cars 1000+…. my opinion..

    • Jan. 13, 6:39pm

      Guys I know they seem expensive, but just think of all the man hours went into making all this content and think of how few people actually buy the DLC… they have a company to run and staff to pay. Im quite happy to support PD with what is really 20 minutes worth of pay.

      You can´t expect me to believe, that those prices are for all the manwork invested in this DLC? Haha…come on. They just need 100000 peolpe to earn anther million. And I dont believe, that the manwork for this DLC is worth a million. If we need to pay 10€/$ every to month, we spend 120€/$ over the whole year. Do you think, that it is worth this much? It´s double the game price but just a peanut of content in comparison.

    • Jan. 14, 6:03am

      Ups, calculation mistake…..would be 60€/$ over the whole year…but still far too much. As some others mentioned: they shuld make the DLC open to choose, which cars we want to buy.Two cars in this DLC are useless, but Ineed to buy the whole package to get them. That isn´t fair.
