    Wow. Judging by the posts I see here I’m guessing the average age of ranting poster to be 16 or younger. You want Forza? Go get it.

    Different tracks, cars, livery, blah blah blah. PD could have dumped this ages ago and you wouldn’t have anything to cry about.

    Besides everyone knows all this game really needs is a skidpad and a Reliant Robin :P

    • Here’s the issue for everyone. You embrace the series for what it is. GT5, Forza, NFS etc. If you are a true gear head, then you will enjoy the games as the are. They may be not perfect, and lots of us have fantastic ideas in ways they can be improved. Make it fun for yourselves. No one is twisting our arms to buy DLC’s, no matter if you agree or disagree with the content or price. Some of spend a small fortune on DLC’s, others pick and choose. That’s what its all about. Have fun and burn rubber!

    • Progress823

      + 1… Very well said.

    • smskeeter23

      Exactly.

      I bought it and immediately had a blast on the oval with NASCAR. I think that may just be the best one in the entire game for it now.

  2. MasterSquidP4

    Does anyone else notice more competitive AI & less tire wear? I ran 23 laps around Motegi Superspeedway in a Minolta with Racing Hards. I could have gone to lap 27 though. Then I pitted & put softs on & did 18 laps.

    • The tire wear on an oval will always be lower then on a road course. Your going through less acceleration and decelerations, less corners, all that stuff. The AI most likely just finally learned run faster on ovals or your just not use to it or the car isn’t set up the same as the rest. AI won’t change without an update. Wish they made the AI harder though. Ya know what they really need to do for the AI though? The AI needs to do things like change lines entering a corner when I’m close enough to attempt a pass. Ya know, they just take an inside line into the corners so I have to stay high. Then it could late brake as well and take a line to go user me. Then they could do things like lock it up and maybe run off track. They could be a but more error prone to. But really all they need is to make the AI so that they react when I’m so close to them and change their line when I’m with in a certain radius off them. I wouldn’t mind getting taken out by the AI every now and again either ;)

    • GT5_Honda_Guy

      Thank you PD! Looking forward to future fun as well!

      Most everyone else, get a different hobby.

  3. EVODUDE999

    the USA already has it… i just bought it

    • tpark103

      Yeah playstion store get updated onTuesdays inthe USA.

  4. tpark103

    Fantastic can’t wait to get on my PS3 tonight. I’m always excited when I can add something new no matter what it is. Thanks PD

  5. skyrunr10k

    I think I can tune the frs to be faster than the academy gtr, lol! Already did a 1:30 with slicks and really enjoyed the track.

    • skyrunr10k

      Anyone else want the cones back just for fun? I would mind them with a tuned car and not stopping the gameplay.

    • Amac500

      I liked the cones, added some extra element for some reason, the ones on the apex especially feel legit.

  6. @ all of those who are saying the FR-S is the same as the 86:

    FR-S^

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/playstationblogeurope/6510013703/in/photostream/lightbox/
    86^

    As you can see, the front is slightly different. The interior is also slightly different, I don’t have any images for the interior, but it is.

    • ROYALEFATALE

      it’s 95% the same, lazy.

    • Yes, but it’s not the exact same. Many people here are claiming that it is the same car, with only the badges different, and that is not true.

    • Amac500

      Are you seriously saying there is a difference. Its a known fact in the automotive world that they are the same cars rebranded under Scion and also Subaru from their parent company Toyota. There is no even arguing it, they ARE the same cars with those different badges. The performance is identical, they chassis is identical, everything is identical except for those small little minut things like a slightly more rounded or open spot here or there. Seriously, you think there is a valid difference between the two? Because that would make a total of 1 on that side of the table.

    • Nissan Lover

      @Amac500
      They may be the same on the outside and inside,there is a PERFORMANCE difference between the FR-S and the 86 GT.I just recently done a speed run in both cars with same HP and all original stock parts.BUT,the 86 GT was faster in top speed,acceleration,and the running mile.

      HP: FR-S:202 86 GT:202
      Weight:FR-S:1230kg 86 GT:1230kg
      PP:FR-S: 408 86 GT:409
      But here are the performance difference…
      0-1/4 mile:FR-S:0:15.257 86 GT:0:15:210
      0-1 Mile:FR-S: 0:38.208 86 GT:0:38.178
      0-60:FR-S: 0:06.861 86 GT:0:06.804
      0-100:FR-S:0:17.209 86 GT:0:17.026
      Highest speed i managed:FR-S:143.6MPH 86 GT:154.1MPH
      Highest G-Force I Managed: FR-S:0.65 86 GT:0.65

      *The only thing i did was changed the oil.And i don’t know why,but those Japs(and other European or Foreign Automotive Company) always detune their car in the American Market.
      **And Amac500,i didn’t but the stats for you,i put them there for other people to see.
      And i agree with HarVee,it’s the same car but different badges and slower performance(for the Americans)

    • Actually, as I can see some Americans getting offend at somebody by your comment, but I can see that making sense. It probably has to do with alot of the emission and safety laws for the US market, mainly the emmison control crap they need to put on the engine / exhaust system and so on and so on. I can see that though. I wonder though if you use manual or automatic shifting and also the default settings on the cars, as for some I. GT5 the default traction control isn’t the same for all cars. But yeah, otherwise I can see the emmison restrictions being the reason.

    • Actually wait, no. I just remembered something I myself have observed in my cars doing seasonal events. I’ll have the engine restricted on my cars so that it just fits into the PP, most I can fit. Then I’ll go right then to run the race a second time because the PP on my new car will have magical gotten higher in the 5 lap race. This is because with new cars, as in the real world. They don’t meet maximum performance when they are new, the engine has to warm up to it first. Now I’m assuming you used the Toyota 86 that you were given when it came out and the brand new Scion FR-S. Therefore, the Toyota whose engine has warmed up and came to it’s performance peak out performed the engine that was brand new and never ran before. Thus, the performace edge to the older Toyota.

    • I wonder how many times I will have to argue, until these people can get it through there thick skull that this car isn’t the same as the Toyota variant.

  7. Can someone who has bought this track, confirm whether or not is has Day/night cycle and/or weather?

    P.S, just got done putting about 200 miles on that Scion.

    • It does not have not have night or weather

    • The night part I can understand but no weather is a little disappointing. I feel like weather and time changes should be a given on new tracks because everybody wants it, and I can understand no time change, though Spa should have had it, Motegi should have at least had weather on the main road course. I understand no time change at Motegi though, I guess, but I fell it was kind of unacceptable, and I don’t really like to use that word because it’s pretty harsh, when there was no time change at Spa. Spa holds a 24 hour race and the WEC race there went through a time change.

  8. Toyota2jz

    WTMF? This track should be free, for all who participated in the GT Academy 2012. And a track that has been in the previous series of GT? Should have been added from the beginning… *disappointed*

    • Amac500

      That’s what I’m saying. Maybe not free but it would have made sence to give you this track pack if you got all golds in GT Academy, because be it all bronzes gets you the same awards for completing as gold.

    • Do you think PD makes these track so that your little spoiled asses would be happy? Nope, wake up to reality, you cant get anything you want, you spoiled brat.

    • That was a total waste of a comment Uppmas. And I would like to point out the PD is running a buisiness and part of that is consumer satisfaction, so yeah, making our consumer asses happy is part of the job. Calling somebody who proposed 1 thing free in conjunction with another of the company’s events a “spoiled ass brat” is a pretty lame response and the comment wasn’t even close to spoiled brat criteria. Everybody can have an idea to add something to GT5. It just make you look like a grumpy ass douche bag, you grumpy ass douche bag.

  9. BHalpen

    So I guess this track has no new add feature or functions like weather or night to day transitions to differ it from the gt 4 version?

  10. Lambo24

    This DLC is great and I’m not going to complain about it, however; I would love it if PD put more racecars in (alms, lemans, grand am, etc) like forza and shift have. I want to drive a Audi r18 rather than 15 different skylines.

  11. Amac500

    See, they give you the special Nissan suit for completing GT Academy with bronze or higher. I think they should have thrown in something else for silver and higher, and then if you were won of the couple thousand of us that got gold the Motgei pack would have been appropriate I would think, but I guess not.

    I think the Motegi pack is maybe the most fairly priced pack yet. 4 tracks for 5 dollars, that to me seems good. I was excepting a car pack though, bummer. When we get some the inevitable Nissans should be some LMP2 Nissans. Le Mans Nissans are literally the only cool Nissans they could give us, considering it is they or more wasted repeats of GT-Rs, which I have grown to hate since GT5 was flooded with them. I mean, what do you want? Another Nissan GT-R or an Signetech Oreca Nissan LMP2 car that the winner of GT Academ gets to drive. Seems like an obvious add, but they haven’t yet for some reason.

    • schlep16

      4 of the same track….

    • Amac500

      It’s not the same track it is the 4 differen layouts at one facility. There is an oval, there is a long road course (that’s already 2 tracks, same as the spa pack got you) then there is a very short west course, an then there is the East course which shares a but more the half of the full course, but the way it forms it makes the first corner complex a totally different deal, plus the start finish line and the pit road on the east course are in a different spot then the main course.

  12. A_Higher_Place

    The detail in the pictures doesn’t look that great.. how was the track in GT Academy? I don’t want to buy a bland track.

    • MÜLE_9242

      It looks much better in the game than in the pictures.

    • The track was “bland” in GT Academy too. Honestly, it doesn’t look like they did anything different to the track since it was used in the Academy.

    • schlep16

      The tracks like London, madrid, eiger are the best tracks because there so life life. Motegi, monza, nurburgring are all greenery and track. Not to exciting.

    • Amac500

      Look at some real world racing from the track. Indycar has raced at both the oval and last year the road course, the highlights to both are on indycars official YouTube account. That’s a good way to tell I think.

      In GT Academy they use the East Course and I thought it was good. The first corner complex is pretty fun. There was hard breaking for the first corner and then it snakes and each corner through it gets a but faster and a bit faster. It’s really fun pushing it hard out of that complex and onto a long straight. Then there’s a right handed and a longer one into what I found in GT Academy to be the hardest corner in the game. There is a left handed that isn’t too bad, but then there is this long right hander. The racing line says you should be able to go through it just about flat out and it look like you can. However for some reason you can’t easily because the car starts spinning and pushes off straight. It’s a challenging through there, and I greatly enjoy that in a race track. Then there is a left hander and a hairpin that launches onto the big main straight, so the hairpin is a good spot to pass or set somebody up or turn 1. But I know that challenging right hander is also part of the full course, as all but a couple corners in the middle of the first complex are. There is also a west layout which I have no clue about and there is an oval. There should be something for everyone with in the 4 tracks and honestly it makes more sence to get then the first track pack that had Spa and a go-kart track. This one offers you much more for different racing options.

  13. schlep16

    Also, ‘PD listen to the community’ Yeh right!
    You put in an old Supra, a Tom supra, a yellow hat etc. Is it hat hard to give us the normal Toyota Supra that we all want, the standard one. Same goes for a Bugatti, why model a new car and not make it Premium? kinda defeats the purpose.
    This game does not have 1000+ cars. It has 250+ the other 950+ aren’t exactly ‘cars’ there just remakes from GT4 added in so PD can boast 1000+ cars.

    • ImprezaAddict

      What? How are the Standards not cars? By definition they all have an engine, transmission, four wheels, steering wheel, suspension, etc. They are cars.

      That the Standards are not up to what you want them to be is different.

    • schlep16

      “That the Standards are not up to what you want them to be is different.” this is wat i meant hahaha.
      U cant boast 1000 cars when 950 of em are GT4 replicas. There not PS3 worthy, therefore don’t put them into GT5 and focus more on making them premiums or giving every1 the cars they want.

  14. schlep16

    This is ridiculous, i dont care if you people are saying ‘you moan for a track and a car and once they give it to u or still moaning’
    no thats wrong. PD promised us 2 months DLC. They waited ages to gives us new DLC and what do they give us? A re created GT4 track and another version of a GT-86. If this brand is supposed to be competing with Forza and NFS why not gives us something worth while. This is an insult, Forza get a free viper whilst we get another GT-86. U can’t exactly call this ‘DLC.’ The reason we moan is because there is so much hype for new DLC and they end up giving us crap. Why do bother then? Some of us have spent alot of money on them, buying the steering wheel, all DLC, the special editions etc. They give us crappy DLC. This is why I have stopped GT5. Its not exciting, there not innovate…there crap.

    • MÜLE_9242

      Cry moar. You wont be missed. Don’t let the door hit you on your way out.

    • schlep16

      cool for u. Im not crying i dont care really, its there lost not mine. im not playing GT5 anymore, nor am i buying any of there products. Im sure i won’t be the only one. If they can’t provide why shall i offer.

    • 1) GT5 isn’t competing with NFS, as NFS is an arcade racer, not a simulation racer.

      2) Why should it compete with Forza? Forza is a 360 game, not a PS3 game. And as far as I know, GT is the only racing simulator on the PS3 Unit.

    • schlep16

      People who are looking to buy a PS3 or an Xbox and love cars and racing, if they read reviews and did research they’d most likely go for Forza. In some respect its competing, people can easily go from PS3 to Xbox or visa versa. People who love gaming and love cars enough would. Also, the fact that PS3 community sees that Forza/Xbox community is offering more PS3 community/GT5 might stop buying the products of PD and move onto different games due to jealousy and what, almost like a strike.
      Sounds far fetched yes.. But is possible. You shouldn’t under estimate what humans are capable of when pissed off or jealous.

    • MÜLE_9242

      if you weren’t crying, you wouldn’t have made a long ranting post.

    • schlep16

      then clearly im not crying….ahhh BARNT!

    • I agree with Schlep, This is getting out of hand. PD could be doing much better. If they truly cared about their customers, they’d take some ideas from Turn10, 1 being to actually LISTEN to their fanbase and give us cars WE want, not what they want and same with game features. Shouldn’t be hard with the resources PD has.

  15. fallfast90

    The FR-S is free, you can go ahead and download it now! You can’t purchase any F.I. for it though.

  16. TheGTGuy

    I hope there is a car pack added soon.

  17. JDM Bart

    All i want is an PREMIUM Mark IV Toyota Supra!
    Then the 90′s Japanese supercars will be complete ;)

  18. UND3RD0G

    Anyone think the Subaru BRZ will be released as a DLC in the near future?
    I’m kinda disappointed with how the Scion FR-S in GT5 has the exact same specs as the 86 GT. I was expecting the car to have 200+ HP and a bit of weight like its real-world counterpart :/ but oh well. I went into GT Auto with the FR-S hoping there would be some new wings or exstension(s) but sadly the car shares the same body kits, Go Figure :o! Can anyone spot the difference between the 86 GT and FR-S showroom paints beside their names. Well I’m glad the car was at least free to download :p.
    I hope Polyphony Digital could make good use with the Scion marque in the premium dealership like add the newer versions of the xB, tC, and add the new iQ.

    • Flaco13

      So the brand has been added in the NCD? Thats a good thing, regarding future dlc

    • schlep16

      What other worth while cars does Scion have?

    • Amac500

      Good question Shelp, none. The FR-S is pointless because it is the exact Toyota 86 we all ready had. Everything else is crap that no man with balls wants to drive. Seriously, the only people who thinks “Scion” in the NCD is good news is somebody who either now or use to own a Scion car, and that’s all. That or they are the kind of people how like the Nissan Leaf, and those kind of people shouldnt even play GT5 because you sure as hell have no buisness with racing if thats the case. Seriously, one reason to like them, somebody tell me. If we want new street cars how about some new Audi models with the new LED headlights that look so fantastic, those would be cool if ya want street cars. Scions are just pointless though. There are 1,000s of better cars to add and / or make premium before Scion. Personally I want some current Le Mans cars. Since they have a deal with Nissan then an LMP2 Nissan makes sence to me. Nissan is clearly interested in marketing through Le Mans since they powered 13 of the 20 LMP2 cars this year. Who wants a Scion before that also realistic add?

    • Flaco13

      …its a good thing regarding future dlc because we now know PD might add other manufacturers to the NCD. Whoever thinks that GT was all and only about race cars is absolutely ignorant and shouldn’t play GT5 but would be better off buying a PC SimRacing game for that person did not understand a slightest piece of what GT is all about. It is about CARS, all kinds of CARS from the Patent Motorwagen until Formula’s and EVERYTHING in between including Scion’s Dacia’s and Kia’s

    • schlep16

      Amac i can’t agree more.
      If as u say, well they do… have a contract/deal with Nissan, why not put in a Deltawing. EVERYONE! Would buy that over a Scion or a toyota 86. It would bring GT5 back alive again.
      If they combined a Deltawing, with the motegi pack for the same price i wouldn’t be complaining. i’d be cheering and i’d be the first person to buy it

    • I’m not a huge delta wing fan since I was staying posted on the car and know it was built on an Aston Martin AMR-One tub with parts fabricated in America and the engine is from a… Chevy Cruze WTCC car rebranded as a Nissan. It shares qualities of the Juke R but isn’t from one and no part of the deltawing was developed by Nissan. Mulsannescorner.com had it on march 8th of this year I think if you look in the archives. But ya, I just can’t get passed that. But still, I’ll take it, lol.

      Now for you Flaco13! Where did I say the game was all about race cars? I said that what I personally wanted to see was some Le Mans cars, thats just the thing I wanted added. Everybody has their own list of things they want added to the game, Schelp just said he wanted a deltawing. I never said that the game should only be race cars. I spent an equal amount of time talkin about wanting new Audi street cars in the game. What, did you get all offended because you are one of those Scion owners or Nissan Leaf supports and got so upset about that that you had to focus on 1 part of my post and pretend another part didn’t exist so you could make 1 post full of inaccurate insults to exact your revenge? Come on now buddy, you were pulling hard for that. I do though see what you mean about adding new cars to the NCD.

    • Flaco13

      Full of insults? lol… it’s ok “buddy”

  19. Flaco13

    omg, you guys really make my day. “We don’t want cars we want tracks”. Now there is a track it just ain’t good enough. “Now we want more cars” well you will find something to moan and cry about the next car pack anyway, no need to be a prophet to know that. I just sit back and laugh. (and wait for the store update in europe… those kids, lmao

  20. Dominic Toretto

    $5 for 1 track… seriously this car is turning up to be the next Skyline or Miata, ANOTHER FR-S (FT86, concept, etc etc). Whats next… the BRZ, its so hard just to change an emblem smh ,,,,, we only waited MONTHS just for another version of an already crappy car thx

    • TokoTurismo

      Hey. You cried for DLC, here it is. Take it or leave it and wait for more. :)

    • “Whats next… the BRZ”

      You know what? I would not mind if PD gave us that car too.

      “its so hard just to change an emblem”

      They didn’t just change the emblem, they had to remodel a majority of the vehicles interior.

    • If that even made senseo I’d take you seriously…

  21. Luckily, this DLC will give me something new to mess around with. I won’t be able to purchase the track until thursday, but at least I can download the car.

  22. £4 for a GT4 port and a duplicate car? You have to be joking PD……

    I can’t help but feel so let down, both by PD and the GT5 community. All these people who post stuff like “I’ll happily pay for more cars and tracks…or…I can’t wait to dip into my wallet to pay for this…etc”

    Well if you’re so happy we have to pay more money to complete an incomplete game, maybe you can pay for mine too?

    All of these updates should be free. PD owes us.

    • “All of these updates should be free. PD owes us.”

      All the game updates are free?

      DLC isn’t updates, it’s add-on content. What’s so wrong with adding new content to the game?

    • TokoTurismo

      I know. Other games does DLC so PD does the same. YET its a big deal…

    • MÜLE_9242

      It’s not a port, it’s a complete re-scan. Cry moar. PD owe you nothing.

  23. hahahah KingDiamond83 you can stick this example deep in your …!!! This DLC is bad end everybody knows that!!!

    • TokoTurismo

      Disagree. That’s YOU who believes its bad, while the rest believes its good. Your’re a fanboy of some other games or just a troll, so why I’m wasting my time telling you this is beyond me. >_>

  24. tacom08

    Another tuning project :)

  25. carracerptp

    :lol: the AI still hits the wall on the oval track.

  26. So loads of people were crying for DLC when we get it they cry when they have to pay for it. Idiots!!!

    • I really think they should consider themselves lucky they are still getting DLC for an 18 month old game!

  27. marktyper

    Yay Motegi! But I don’t get why the Scion FR-S is a DLC while we got it as the 86 GT just recently for free. :o why? why? why? it’s the same car. Anyways, I’ll still get the DLC because of Motegi.

  28. ChevyFan1912

    I’m making a Motegi room on the lobby. It’s going to be called “MOTEGI”

    Join in

  29. i have a flat

    Soon?another 2months?

  30. KingDiamond83

    Will you crybabys just shut the hell up? At least we are getting something and not nothing ok? Kaz has gaven us so much for the game for free. he knows the game isnt perfect, so thats why he is trying to do the best to get us satisfied. and when you guys complain about repeat cars, you guys are forgetting the fact that most games have repeat cars too. In NFS Hot Pursuit, why the hell would i want a lambo gallardo and a gallardo spyder? There is no difference except the top. So why would you guys go and say that GT is only repeat cars when i gave you an example of another game with repeat cars?

    On a positive note, i am excited for the DLC. The FGT is my version of an IZOD Indycar since they dont have those, and its good to see a new oval

    • That_guy100

      Because they’re hypocrites. Funny thing is, if both those lambos were in this game, or if the spyder was offered in DLC, they’d be praising the DLC and saying how amazing it was. But as soon as another car that is slower or not close to the speed of that lambo gets a duplicate, they start complaining.

    • Kumaclimber

      Kaz hasnt given us anything for free. I don’t know about you but I had to pay real life money for my copy of gt5

    • RandomCarGuy17

      I actually would like a gallardo spyder to be in the game TBH, lol. I do agree though that some people do complain too much about not getting what they expect. I’m just happy with Twin Ring Motegi being back in the GT series and I’m glad the scion FR-S is going to be added to the game. I wish they added the Subaru BR-Z though.

    • Pit Crew

      @Kumaclimber We got a RedBullX1 Free, GTR 500 Stealth, SchulzeMotor sport GTR (Kazs) 2 Toyota 86, A GTAcademy GTR (Non Black Edition) Free.

    So can I download the Scion right now, or it will appear after an update of some sort?

    I’ll get this track. It’s so worth it. Too bad I emptied my PSN wallet after waiting for so long, so it’ll be a long time util I buy it. And don’t worry everyone, I’m sure the next DLC will be a car pack.

    • Its in the playstation store already. I have purchased the stuff already.

    • HuskyGT

      Nevermind. I just downloaded it. This car was already included in the last update since it only weights 100k. I can also confirm that we have a new manufacturer in the New Car Dealership. Kind of gives me hopes that a couple others will be added later.

      the scion is correctly LHD. It has the same body kits than the 86 and also wheel selection. I’ll test it right now…

  32. hairystig

    yay another rebadged/duplicate car just what gt5 needed!

    new tracks are always welcome though and I don’t think the price is unreasonable .

    • patriotsfanx

      I cant find it. its not in car delivery or garage

  33. JaySin85

    It’s funny that this track has a, Gran Turismo Café, yet it wasn’t even originally in the game. That should mean it’ll automatically be in every GT game.

    Oh well, at least we have it now.

  34. Its actually available now in the US store :)

  35. gamerdog6482

    Last week my PS3 stopped connecting to the internet. Still hasn’t been fixed. WORST POSSIBLE TIME.

  36. Meh. Next,

  37. aventador51

    if there’s a small dlc a larger wil follow soon :-)

  38. TankAss95

    I’ll be buying for sure. Motegi is awesome and will be the place of some very sweet 400-500 pp races. The scion FR-S is basically the same as the Toyota I think, but maybe a little less tail happy? Sorry I’m not sure it’s just what I’ve heard.

  39. R35 SKYLIN3

    new DLC! Giving us a track… we should have already had, give us a 3rd version of the same car… lets charge $5! wow… great ideas kaz!

  40. i love gt5

    Pd is so bad, after all those months we get a fd’up track for 5 bucks:ouch:

  41. PorkyTheRacer

    Wonder if scion will be in dealership with tc maybe. And I hope the frs can be turbocharged

  42. gordogg24p

    It’s out in the US now.

  43. PorkyTheRacer

    I just hope aero kits are different in the frs. Where is the NSX though or the zl1 or a gt500 I’m kinda dissapointed on that

  44. RentALife

    Kazunori Yamauchi listen to the video game players and put more cars and rims and make features we ask for in the game after gt academy this year don’t do one thing else than work on the game if you put 10 new cars in the game (EXOTIC CARS) and 5 new tracks like for ex:SLIVERSTONE OR WATKINS GLEN atleast 5 new tracks with like 10 NEW SET OF RIMS and then make the DLC 15$ and what ever the price diffrence is around the world you’ll make more money and you make us players feel better then that will shut us up for the next couple of months

  45. DriveTheGuard88

    I can’t wait!!!

  46. acedition333

    Eh, I hope the next DLC will bring some excitement. Waiting for this was kind of a let down. But we’ll take what we can get, one track /one car is “eh” for now. PD, you can do better!

  47. Gturbo5

    4 Tracks – Succes!
    1 Car – Failed! no special!
    Reward – GT Academy – Succes!

    MINI Update =(

    WHERE Is New Nsx 2012?

  48. TheeFrogmanlego

    OH the complaints, who wants me to link them to the two hundred pages complaining as to why we don’t have the scion fr-s..
    Thank you Kaz , if i could id shake your hand, your games shaped my life and love of cars, thank you.

  49. LR-MR-Cole

    What happend to the DLC every two months? And this DLC is a Track Pack. Dont understand the part of the Scion FRS and Toyota GT86. But it is free if they charged say $2-3 for a car we already have than would have been pissed. I WANT NEW M5, Paganis like Huayra, Cinque, Tri Colure, 760RS, Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Just new cars. Oh and notice how Forza is the new sponser for all these BIG races now like 24hr races and it used the be Gran Turismo. I still think they do 24hr Ring but Forza is taking OVER. Yeah physics suck but they keep fans happy and it only takes a month to make 10 cars it takes PD 10months to make 1 and they look way better in Forza. Im about done with GT5 and ready for Forza

    • RentALife

      I agree gran turismo 5 need to pick up the pace gt academy stop it for ATLEAST one year and worry about the game gt5 is doing all these other things but not working on the game forza ain’t got to worry about no sponsoring races well not much and no academy to make real race car drivers ain’t nothing wrong about making real life race car drivers but it’s to much drama on gran turismo stop everything and just work on the game

    • TheeFrogmanlego

      we did get dlc every 2 months , gt academy counted as DLC per say.. , it fits the time slot perfectly.
      Go play forza , no ones stopping you.

    • eminembeastfan2

      we did get a DLC it’s called GT ACADEMY PRIZE CARS.

    • ROYALEFATALE

      prize cars = cars we already have with stickers on them, it’s as bad as the re-branded Toyota 86

  50. RentALife

    I don’t want a scion or Toyota no slow cars give us like the porshe gt3rs and Ferrari fxx or buggati super sport last good cars was the aventador and Aston Martin talking about Aston Martin give us the one-77 come on gt5 you guys and girls over there are lagging back

    • PorkyTheRacer

      We can’t have Porsche

    • That_guy100

      Theres nothing wrong with slow cars. Gran Turismo isn’t only about high end racing cars. Infact, the series was never narrowly focused on that.

  51. aronh17

    It’s out in the US PS Store right now.

    • aronh17

      Also the Scion isn’t a remodeled Toyota, it’s a left hand drive new car.

    • aronh17

      Or it’s not a “rebadged” as you guys say.

    • Pit Crew

      Rebadged for US Market. Subaru Engine. Mostly same car as the Xmas gift. Oh well…

  52. dakoolguy123

    Can we get silverstone please kaz

  53. Flagmo-T

    Well!! I would like to alter the idea that the Scion are free, more to have a better feeling to buy this DLC..

    SO How to do that!! :o)

    I persuade my mind to believe, that the Track/s are the ones that are free, and the Scion is just very expensive in this DLC, but at least i haven’t pay for the track/s twice then..

    I’m sure my wife will understand that better, otherwise she would Kick Mr.PD almighty virtually Because i will buy it anyway LoL Hmm :o)

  54. i have a flat

    Another version of the same car yay !

    • Actually, this car is 30% new, for example now is left hand drive, and it has some different parts than the 86.

  55. Antonisbob

    PS Blog says it’s out today.. cause y’know.. the PS Store updates on Tuesday…

  56. Man screw that Scion -__-

    • RentALife

      That’s what I’m saying I don’t want this crap give us like ferrari fxx or porshe gt3rs or even the gt academy cars they use in real life I don’t care just give us something worth our money not some bs

  57. Roswellito

    Nice DLC.I can wait one day more.

  58. DLC is always nice and I’m certainly buying it, but I’m still waiting for the tracks I expected to get from the start but didn’t. Where are those GT4 beauties???

  59. v13esim

    Hmmm this or a footlong at subway?

  60. Quakebass

    Looks like the the other currencies get ripped off again – 5 Euros = $6.30 (USD), 4 Pounds = $6.24 (USD).

    And I was expecting a car pack; this is very little content for the time it took to release it. GT Academy may have taken a lot of work, but I don’t think that’s a good excuse. Very disappointing. And where’s the NSX…?

  61. jaycee_xr3

    Crappy but I gonna buy it… because racetrack :D

  62. bretlei

    Woo update and dlc on my birthday :D

  63. How about the Honda/Acura NSX? The model has already been made.

  64. Jamiestarr

    One Car ?……..
    One Track ?………

    • e30 freek

      Its 4 tracks i think

    • @ e30 freek,

      Its 2 tracks with 4 layouts.

    • Quakebass

      4 variations of one track; essentially two tracks due to the Speedway and standard circuit, but the circuit still has three variants.

      But yes, ONE car is VERY disappointing.

  65. Hahahahaha DLC? Hahahahah lol…..Forza July car pack goooo!!!!!!!!

  66. aronh17

    It says coming out today on the PS Blog for the U.S.

  67. e30 freek

    This is by far the worst complementary car for this racing circuit they could have just put a spoiler on the e90 m3 and gave us the m3 gts :p

  68. So no surprises, it’s as dull as expected. I’m actually looking forward to see the screenshots of the Forza July car pack that is revealed later today. At least T10 knows how to bring some excitement. And I don’t even have an xbox.

    • e30 freek

      Lol

    • What’s the point in car DLC? One of my friends said ”Car DLC is pointless, I haven’t even tried half of the cars that are in the game without DLC”. Tracks are the things we get bored to, not the cars.

    • Quakebass

      ^ I agree, but there’s still some cars that would be very nice to have; Premium race cars are on my list now. We don’t have that many now that I look at the list.

    • TheeFrogmanlego

      Who wants new cars when half the tracks in that game are stale, forza needs new tracks yet turn10′s to lazy to model anything.. all there stuff is outsourced with the exception of tracks.. so good luck getting a new track .

  69. Borna12345

    When will they learn? €≠$

  70. MGTTTTT

    What I really like about this track is it runs really smoothly at 1080p with no tearing on GT academy 2012. Tracks that run smoothly at 60 fps are much better and more popular for online racing. The worst offenders for tearing like Kartspace and madrid are really unpopular online.

    I am personally looking forward to putting all those practice laps in the Gt academy to good use in some classic online battles. Thankyou PD for your continuing support of GT5.

    On another topic. I own all the Dirt series and I just dont play them because they run badly at 30 fps and there is screen tearing I HATE SCREEN TEARING!!! The dirt online lobbies are also full of kids who ram you all the time!!

    • ZedMan1996

      Sounds cool man! Use the Tuned GT Academy Nissan 370Z on that track as a competition to live on the final event of GT Academy 2012

    • TomBrady

      At least you don’t have it on Xbox. Xbox is notorious for having ridiculous amounts of screen tearing. Sometimes on multiplatform games, the xbox may run a slightly higher frame rate than PS3, but the PS3 also has almost no screen tearing for the most part. And on exclusives, just look at Forza 4 if you think Dirt or Grid is bad about frame tearing and FPS droppage. They’re nothing in comparison, and Fm4 is supposed to run at 60FPS lol

    • MGTTTTT

      After Reading a few reviews for Forza I went down to a GAMES retailer to give it a try. After a couple of laps I couldnt believe how it got such good reviews for graphics. In my opinion It definitely didnt run or feel as good as GT5. I was consisidering buying an xbox just to play Forza 4 but Im glad I did a bit of hands on testing first. Im not a fan boy by the way, I am nearly 40 and know a good game when I see one.

    • TomBrady

      Yea I wasn’t trying to bad mouth Forza. It’s a great game, but I just can’t get into it. It’s realistic, but simply not realistic enough for me. Graphics are not as important as physics anyway

    • Borna12345

      Yea, me too.

  71. PhillGuy

    Again selling us a car we basically already have. Nice!

    Can’t they give us something new for a change.

    Actually now that I think of it how many cars have they sold us that aren’t really new. And a track… one track… who cares.

    Spa sucked and is unraceable. Route X is useless and boring.

    • mcfizzle

      The Scion is free so there is no selling involved and if you think Spa sucks and is unraceable then you have been racing with the wrong people.

    • Quakebass

      I’m surprised by your opinion on Spa… But I understand how one can dislike Route X, but it’s main use was for speed testing… so it has a use. Scion is free – it isn’t being “sold” to us. Aventador, Mini Countryman, Aston V12 Vantage, ’66 Beetle, ’10 Golf and Scirocco, 2 new Karts, quite a few racing versions of many cars… These weren’t “new” to you…?

      But I AM disappointed that there isn’t a car pack being released.

    • gordogg24p

      Spa sucks? This confirms your comment as irrelevant.

    • Flagmo-T

      Well!! I would like to alter the idea that the Scion are free, more to have a ok feeling to buy the DLC.. SO!! :o)

      I let my mind believe that the Track/s are the ones that are free, and the Scion is just very expensive, but at least i haven’t pay for the track twice then.. I’m sure my wife will understand that better :P

    • PhillGuy

      To Quakebass

      I think that Spa could be a good track but so many people do not know how to race there, I also find the penalties there far to strict.

      As far as the cars, with all that cars out there not in the game that should be made, we have the Murciélago don’t need the Aventador, is any one going to use a larger Mini, Aston v12 Vantage=DB9 in almost every way. really a 66 Beetle that was a novelty for five seconds. And the Gold and the Sirocco are the same car except one is 4wd.

    • Quakebass

      ^ I don’t see why we don’t need an Aventador; it’s faster, even better looking (in my opinion) and a spiritual successor to the Murciélago. Saying that is like saying we didn’t need the two different Murciélagos. I’m sure some people would use a larger Mini in some way. The V12 Vantage is far faster (and pretty much better) than the DB9 in almost every way… And there’s PLENTY of Beetle fans out there; the Beetle is an iconic car (despite what many people think of it [Jeremy Clarkson... tsk tsk]). The Golf and Sirocco may be nearly the same car… But they look very different, and I believe the purpose of the two separate cars is really the different drivetrains. And what about the TC’s and Karts? You din’t say anything about those. I’m amazed that you didn’t mention the word “GT-R” or “Nissan” at all. But there ARE some cars that are needed, and it’s very disappointing for me to know that PD is only releasing a track pack – it seems like they could’ve done FAR more in the time they were given. Who knows? Maybe they’ll pull off something like they did with DLC 2 and 3; small DLC pack one month, and then a BIG pack just one short month afterwards? I sure hope so.

  72. RentALife

    I WAS HOPING FOR RIMS IN THIS DLC SO PUT MORE RIMS IN THE GAME

    • DA6righthand

      I’d like to see more of a wheel selection also. I don’t like how some rims are only available for some cars. For example, Enkei RPF1′s are able to be put on the Prius TC but not the CR-Z TC. Why? I’d like to put RPF1′s on my Integra Type R (any year) but the game won’t allow it. I know in real life, Enkei RPF1′s are made in the right sizes for Integras. Any wheel should be able to go on any car imo.

    • RentALife

      Exactly just to some it up put more rims in the game ex:the rims they got for the trucks are small look like 16′s on there either put a feature to where you can get a rim and make the rim size big as you want or put rims for trucks automatically big for trucks but either way more rims

  73. They’re at hard work on GT6 because its going to be a launch title for the Playstation 4 wich will be realeased in Q4 2013 or Q1 2014. For me PD is doing well, hope they saw all its errors with GT5 just to make of GT6 a Masterpiece and blow up anyother racing game in existence!

    By Wiki-GT11

  74. Great news.

  75. mickoafna

    I will pay 4 £ for this DLC, no problem. But I hope they will release another DLC that is full of new cars :-)
    Thanks PD :-)

    • DA6righthand

      Me too. It’s good to be content with what they’ve got for now and hope for more in the future.

  76. hopefully the Scion FR-S will have different body styling options as it’s being aimed at tuners in the real world…

    • Quakebass

      Or hopefully race-moddable? There hasn’t been a single DLC/Update car that could be RM’d – it’d be nice if they released an update that allowed you to RM cars to achieve the TC cars from DLC 1; though it’d require you to have purchased car pack 1…

  77. Nuschel01

    Oh harro -.-

    I think all participants of the Academy should get the track for free or with a discount…

    • I disagree. They are already getting the GTR black edition (paid for DLC) for free as it is. I’m a bit miffed as i bought the car pack and now one of the cars is being given away for free…

  78. j0nny0093

    why i have to pay for a track free on GT4 and GT PSP , Polyphony has already copyrights for this track !!!!

    • but it was not modelled to the detail of GT5 (I’m assuming, I obviously dont have it yet… if i’m wrong them apologies)

    • j0nny0093

      it’s true but is the same track f*** :(

    • Whitestar

      Please explain how it was free in GT4. As far as I can remember GT4 wasn’t given away free.

    • starwars22

      You paid for the game didn’t u

    • TomBrady

      That’s not how it works. They have to make judgement calls. They spent a lot of time working on the GT5 engine because it was on a new system, and they had to prioritize adding new features over keeping all content from previous games.

      The same thing happened with GT3.

      We complained, and they worked hard to give this to us as DLC. You realize how much money making this track with laser scanning must’ve cost them? including the man hours .

      Seriosl $4 is NOTHING!!!!!!!! You can’t even get a meal at a fast food place for that. You can’t even get 2 beers for that at the BAR!!!!!

    • Quakebass

      ^ $5… and the other currencies translate to $6.25 – $6.30… THERE’S something to complain about. But yes, I still don’t understand the requests for everything to be free… especially now, when everyone thinks this is a direct import from GT4/PSP, but it’s actually a major HD re-scale. And I don’t see how GT Academy gives any rights to free or discounted DLC… GT Academy was a free gift in its own right in my eyes…

  79. Ferrari458Italia

    $5 for ONE track? hell to the f*** no!
    I’ve bought all the other DLC’s but it looks like I won’t be buying this. This track is nothing special either

    • so you paid this much for the speed test track? (one track) yet a track with 4 variations is not worth it…?

    • TokoTurismo

      ^ +1 I so agree. That’s actually a reasonable price IMO.

    • what annoys me is the random 99p pricing. people in the states get a $5 price tag, why not make it £4 and 5 euros? I always end up with 1p left over :S lol

    • grazbro

      This will be the last DLC anyway. Not really going out with a bang are they.

    • Whitestar

      ^The last DLC? Has this been confirmed?

    • Quakebass

      @NJ72: Well you should be more upset that you’ll actually be paying a good $1.25 more than than what U.S. players are paying for…

  80. KillYouSD

    This track is free for forza. I think it should be free for gt5 also.

    • Whitestar

      Listen, the track is not free in Forza. You pay for the game, therefore you pay for the track.

    • TomBrady

      Fujimi Kaido is free in forza, does that mean you’re dumb enough to expect it to be in GT5 for free as well? (I wish it was honestly)

      Games in the same category aren’t obligated to have the same content for free, let alone 2 games in totally different categories. Get out of here with that son

  81. Ingenting87

    finally some new dlc.. But why this car?? Id rather have a E30…
    BTW PD, please upgrade Supra RZ, Nissan 180 and 240SX (S14) to Premium cars….

  82. skyrunr10k

    I just wish they would bundle all the DLC together so we could save a few bucks yet still support PD. OR if you purchased DLC in the past and golded academy2012 you would get a discount. OR be able to use game money to buy a track. OR at least throw in some chrome and matte paint chips and some new rims.

    If you buy all of the DLC you’re paying 2-3 times what the game itself cost in the first place. I’ll just have to divide the purchase price by how many hours of enjoyment you will get from the new track to justify it. MY problem is that I currently have a $4 credit and will be charged another $5 to end up with another $4 credit in my account because of their minimum purchase BS.

    • TomBrady

      haha

      First DLC complete- $12
      Second- $4
      Thrid – $10 ($4 for the speed test, $6 for the cars)
      Motegi- $4

      So how in the hell is $30 triple the price of the game? Even the XL edition, is $40. Most people paid $60

    • Quakebass

      ^ FIVE DOLLARS FOR MOTEGI! And the other regions are being ripped off!

  83. Bring it on!!! Long live GT5!!!

  84. DA6righthand

    Effin awesome. Can’t wait for it! Too bad we don’t get more dlc, but I’ll be happy for now.

  85. gman1647

    I don’t think $5 for 4 new layouts is bad, especially considering that we get the Scion + 8 GTA cars added in for free.

  86. shigllgetcha

    god give it up and move on to GT6

    • GeoQuin4

      Why bother? The “career” mode of these games has always been lacking, the B-spec mode is almost entirely useless (just a great way to get cars and overheat your PS3 for that YLOD we’ve always dreamed of), and anything B-spec in the seasonal events is just a waste of time… However, a constant update to the seasonal events with challenging A-spec races for different disciplines as they’ve been doing, as well as the online racing have made the game better and more exciting than anything done in the past. A 6th installment of the franchise (which is most likely being worked on already while they’re doing this stuff), is honestly just going to force us to go back to the grind with mind-numbing racing against mindless AI all over again. I’m on my third account working toward all golds and 100% and it’s still interesting. I can’t say the same of the other installments of the game (and I’ve done the same with all other installments available for consoles). Keep adding tracks, challenges, and cars, and I think most people will be quite content. Now, I want another Tourist Trophy, but I guess that’s just not going to happen.

    • karelpipa

      +1

    • TomBrady

      Dude, do you really think cars and tracks in DLC won’t just be added do GT6 anyways?

      THIS IS A PART OF GT6. Why would they add DLC, but not include the content in GT6?

      SO HOW IS THIS SLOWING THEM DOWN?

      Come on son

    • Quakebass

      ^ It’s slowing PD down because they’re putting workforce on GT5 that could be used for GT6. I’d rather PD drop all support (except for server moderators) and move EVERYTHING onto GT6. Though, I’d like one last batch of content, as a “good bye” gift; something like “Spec III” or on the lines of that…

  87. MadmuppGT

    Why dont they give/sell us that smokey photo location, or the GT cafe as a photo location too?

    a car pack would be nice, but I think personally if we dont see a car pack with this track its a possible indication that GT6 is firmly in the works now. I mean why waste time making new cars for GT5 when you can save them for number 6

    • GeoQuin4

      Maybe to keep people interested and spending money rather than moving onto Forza, Dirt, or any other franchise that offers constant updates. When GT6 comes out, it will be very unlikely that it’s during the life-span of the PS3.

    • Quakebass

      …We already know that GT6 is firmly under development, and has been since before GT5 came out…

    • MrMelancholy15

      That “smoky photo location” is a variant of the showrooms.

  88. FINALLY a short track for NASCAR. I am GOFAST_RCN_1 I will be hosting races on this new course as soon as it is up pm me if u want to join tomorrow night

    • DA6righthand

      I don’t particularly like toilet bowl racin’ but I’ll have to admit, I’m looking forward to a short oval. I’d really like to see something like martinsville or Iowa motor speedway. Something less than a mile.

  89. 4 quid for a track, can buy a couple of pints with tht.

    • Depends on where you’re drinking… round my way that’ll get you one pint :( lol

  90. seanchump

    Low res, no dynamic weather. This is the first DLC I won’t buy :(

    • ok

    • Hypergolem

      what do you mean Low Res…

    • Faria0808

      lol, what do u think ?

    • Ferrari458Italia

      +1
      this track is nothing special. It’s no Pikes Peak or Silverstone. Won’t buy either

    • TokoTurismo

      ^ Okay that’s you’re choice, but please don’t say its not special just because its neither of those tracks…

  91. erickjoubert

    next DLC some supercars like Viper SRT GTS and RUF RT12

  92. otakukid96

    Yes! I was about to go out before I saw this so I’m gonna need to get a PSN card.

  93. richiem2282

    old track and Toyota 86 version 1.02…. was under the impression that we’d be getting this track after the GT Academy for free, Oh well may as well continue the DLC collection, really think the Scion is a weak attempt at DLC…

    • Quakebass

      It’s free though, and isn’t a part of the DLC.

  94. It is Left Hand Drive ^_^ No need for more ”5 min decal change” -jokes

  95. Callumfromleeds

    Been waiting for this track for a very long time :D Just hope a car pack is announced soon, just to keep the game a bit fresher.

  96. Whatever people say, respect for PD for supporting and upgrading GT5 for all this time. Thank you PD!

  97. GRAFX21

    Why do we have to keep paying? damn…

    • GRAFX21

      this stuff should of been installed in the game during release i feel many games are making 75% completed games now. So they can hold back in installments and use it later to charge u. and most people…and like me do it. sucks though…any one agree?

      Because they spent their time to make the track and should be rewarded for their efforts.

      i did, when i purchased the game. they held back on this content.

      I thought this was reported to be on the disc originally? They aren’t making anything new; only releasing in bits to get more money. Its the new model for the gaming industry.

      Keep thinking that if it makes you feel better.

    • Even if they are, dont flame PD for doing it, flame sony for making it possible. Personally I disagree, PD released a game that had tonnes more content than GT4 and are still releasing more.

      Haters gonna hate

      Do you work for free? No? Then don’t expect PD to do so either.

    • Cobra Girl

      Not flaming PD. Sony is basically forcing them to do it this way and Pike’s Peak is on the disc as well. Again, my original comment, “Its the new model for the Gaming Industry.” It speaks to the industry as a whole and not just PD. Sorry if I offended. Just don’t be surprised when you see 100KB file when you purchase.

      PD didn’t have enough time to complete GT5, therefore releasing an incomplete game. I agree, many games are being released incomplete nowadays, but I don’t think GT5 was intentional; low workforce, a new engine, and Sony’s forced release was the cause, not PD’s “laziness”. And how do YOU like working hard and getting nothing for it? And @Cobra Girl: The DLC is really just a “code” of sorts to “unlock” the new content for use; the new content is released in the update before the DLC is released. Otherwise, the DLC would be a much longer and more annoying download process. So paying for new content makes sense; “I payed for the game when it was released” isn’t a viable excuse when this is completely new content released WELL after the launch date. I’d complain about how CM has been holding back content from the game for DLC about a week or so ofter the launch of their DIRT games.
