    So im not trying to sound dumb, but where do you find this “mini game”?

    Getting these “new cars” over a 7 week period has me as interested as….say getting past the second round of the academy. Not happening, great game but totally detached company from what most customers want. Maybe GT6 will be better, this game is done. Oh, fanboy’s it’s “whiners” not “whiNNers”…

    I think everyone is forgetting the real point of this game. It is not about DLC or gift cars. We are lucky that PD have put this feature in for us to receive cars.

    GT1, 2, 3, and 4 didn’t have this and now that we have it everyone complains about it. Let PD do it’s work and if you whinners shut up, maybe they will listen to you.

    So remember what this game is about, RACING AND HAVING FUN WITH CARS!

    • Jul. 9, 12:12pm

      Oh and btw, it’s a ‘Driving Simulator’ not a crying simulator for whinners!

      We haven’t missed the Point PD has, and babies whine adults speak their mind.

      Seeing as I have a1st ammendment right to do so I will feel free to complain till they show signs of getting it right, and not just giving up lip service telling the fanbase what they think they wanna hear.

    • Jul. 11, 11:47am
      Mikey006

      Oh don’t worry, many have missed the point of the game. And I know PD hasn’t done the best job in the world, but give them credit for the first ever GT with dlc’s, internet access lobbies. I admit that I agree with some failures PD have produced over the years, but people do it constantly and when they or we have the stuff they want, they complain about again. It’s not easy creating, producing, updating (and whatever else there is) a game. I’d like to see them create one and see how tough it really is with people demanding dlc, updates, bug fixes, more content to the game.

    • Jul. 11, 2:19pm
      Pit Crew

      According to a AutoSport magazine (MotorTrend 2007 I believe but ill look through my collection) that featured thePD dev team who gave a synopsis on the Making of GT5, PD and Kaz already knew they would need to use DLC of some sort to provide gamers with a 1,000 plus car list. They were, according to article suppose to attempt to program 300 premiums with DLC to follow.

      PD makes bad MGMT choices as far as GT5 cuz they are scramble tasking between 2 games now. After playing GT1 thru 4 and looking forward to what we thought would be a vast improvement of those titles on an internet accessible console, then getting said product, after 6 dev years with more holes than swiss cheese, it stands to reason fans would be livid. Like Quakebass said, this games is not up to GT series standards, and PD can do better. You have to plan better with such a big projectt and limited workforce .

    So, why is PD having it’s fanbase wait 8 weeks for every prize car to be released? Why can’t they just gift each prize car 1 per day for only 1 week instead?

      @Jason_B: it’s not that problem and if it was it wouldn’t take 8 weeks. Do you know how many people played the demo m? Over 1 million people times that by 8 cars (not that everyone got all 48 gold medals, but roughly). That’s 8 million cars to give out!!!! That would take ages if it was one per day.

      There is obviously another reason towards this.

    • Jul. 12, 2:26pm
      Pit Crew

      @Mikey006 A car a day, assuming we started on a monday of 1 week we would receive all cars that nxt monday.

      PD Should have made it an 8 car DLC pack with a 1 time use redeem code unique to all players Gold Silvr Bronze accomplishment while inadvertently making it an option to even Download the cars.

      Code could be sent from SONY/PD the same way they sent us PM bout GTA registration.

    what a waste,i was expecting to get all the cars in one shot but 1 car at a time? really? i can short of understand because there was alot of people who did the academy races but dam come on 7 cars big deal…8 if you count the last car which was the 370Z tuned academy car which i think alot of people did not earn like me but i mean come on 7 cars in 7 days or 7 weeks..oo well you get what you pay for lol..free=you sit and wait paid=you get it on time for your money

    PD need to release good quality DLC packs more frequently (let’s say once a month with the occational bonus) and be easier on the pricing because there are so many complaints saying DLC is too expensive (I mean seriously, there aren’t going to be any consumers complaining if the price is lower).

    • Jul. 5, 5:37am
      Uppmas

      It doesn’t matter how much you complain about the price if you still buy it. I mean, by buying all the DLC you give PD (or rather Sony, they do the pricing pretty much) a message that you are willing to pay that price for the DLC, therefore nothing will change.

    • Jul. 5, 6:12am
      Rushton1996

      thats why i havent bought the latest track. its just not justified.

    • Jul. 5, 6:17am

      Considering the price of other games’ DLCs it actually is pretty cheap.

    • Jul. 5, 8:14am
      remomonster

      Yeap… Uppmas the DLC are cheap.. $3.99..$4.99…$7.99 etc is not going to break me. I will buy as long as PD put a DLC out!!

  25. Jul. 5, 4:25am
    Amac500

    I just realized this means there is some kind of update coming that allows us to have and change our driver numbers on our suits and helmets. Look at the sleeve on the suit and the side of the helmet, #00. Why would they just put #00 there if you can’t change it? So by the time we get the suit in Septemeber, which still pisses me off, there will be some weird update for that. Personally I’d rather be able to change the number on any car, drivers don’t often have numbers on their suits and helmets and what if I have cars with different numbers or no number? That’s right, I do have those because you can’t change the number of premium LMP’s and so on.

  26. Jul. 5, 4:19am
    Amac500

    OKAY that is seriously going to piss me off. Nothing special about these cars worth spacing out, and I honestly couldn’t care less about getting the same Nissans with a GT Academy badge smacked on the side. The ONLY thing I want is the driver suit and I won’t get that until when, September?????? That’s absurd!!!! You can do a car a week but just give me my God dam driver suit!!!! Hell you can keep the cars, I ONLY WANT THE SUIT!!!!

    Is this something we will see carried over to GT6? Win a car in an event and wait a week to receive it?

    That’s one way to extend the playing experience I guess…

    Gran Turismo probably has the worst and whiniest fanbase out of all games/simulators. These cars don’t really count as DLC, they are just car transfers from GT Academy.

    And by the worst, I mean the worst.

    Right now they’re complaining over reward cars that’s not really DLC.

    And if they didn’t give the GT Academy cars as rewards, then a bunch of other “fans” would be complaining.

    sigh………..

      They should separate the forum… one for the whiners and complainers and one for the rest of us… Sometimes is such a pain to read the forums, everybody seems to be entitled to make requests and complain about this and that.

    I know people are complaining about the frequency of GT5 DLC packs, but think about this: GT5 was released almost two years ago and yet we’re still getting updates and new content packs. Will Forza be getting the same amount of new content it’s getting now in another year’s time? My guess is probably not.

      Just gaze upon the July car pack the forza boys are getting, and then gaze upon the rebadged nissan duplicates you are receiving as a “gift” from mister Yamauchi and his GT academy. I think the winner regarding which cars actually excite people, and which developer that listens to it’s fanbase is quite clear…

    The thing is why do we have to wait more for cars that “we already have”? Has no sense at all. I am about to full stop playing the game since i am having fun in other PC simulators…and yes even playing against AI.

    I bought all DLC´s and stuff but it is not giving it more life as i though it would. I still love the game because of the graphics and some other cool things…but after all this time of playing day after day (worth it of course) i feel the need to see something new, fresh and complete. Yes GT6 for sure.
    Don´t like the idea of having more cars in future DLC´s having the awful engine sounds, that at least by now seeing how all developers are including realistic sounds, are making me to stop playing because i can´t feel emotions with this sounds at all. While i am playing it makes me yawn no matter if i am in a Mazda 787b at full speed at Nürburgring. It just feels wrong.

    Don´t say “oh, and you started to notice this now after playing for more than a year and a half!!”…no but i use to combine different racing games with GT5 just to keep playing it, and lately in games that i used to play less than GT5, now is the other way around. (Race 07/GTR Evolution + all DLC´s , GTR2, rFactor, rFactor 2…pCARS just to test it but i don´t like the handling at all)

    Again i came with the sounds lol but the thing is that PD loves to keep us waiting (as if we live for ever…) even for cars that we earned during 2 months and now giving it one by one…makes no sense to me…same with DLC´s that could be the unique things for a lot of people that can keep the game “alive”.

    Also i feel that we don´t need more cars (convert standard to premium only) and came back the old tracks in a huge pack but the real DLC should be a new feature or more events.

    Oh yes now i am the one who complains now. Just me.

      I agree with most of that, but come on, it’s only been a few hours… we don’t know yet if we’re getting all the prizes today, or if we wait a day for each. The only reason I could see for the prizes taking a while to distribute is PD having to go though and check who’s gotten which medals on which events (not manually, theres other ways to do it, but with 1,000,000+ players it still takes a while).

    It keeps telling that it failed to download or something. I have the notification but I can’t download the car. Any ideas?

    • Jul. 4, 9:08pm
      Quakebass

      How’s your internet connection? And are you signed in? Try restarting the game or PS3, then try.

      Did you get Car Pack 3? It might not allow you to have a Leaf if you didn’t get the DLC… which is strange.

      If none of these are the issues, I don’t know what it is… It may mean that you can’t collect this specific prize, and I’m sorry if that’s so…

  50. Jul. 4, 7:07pm

    I’m glad to see that we are finally getting the GTA cars. I hope the distribution scheduling gets sorted soon so that the fans can all have an idea when their favorite will be arriving.

    Hmm.. so I get gold in every single event in every single round and I get a leaf…

    • Jul. 4, 7:12pm
      tpark103

      Here is something that had me confused, if you get all golds in round six and seven and rounds four and eight, do you receive two 370Z’s and two GTR’s?

    • Jul. 4, 9:12pm
      Quakebass

      @KksDrifter:

      Obviously you didn’t read this thoroughly; “As of writing, only the Nissan Leaf from the first round is available. The exact schedule of availability for the other prizes has not been published” – we’re not ONLY getting a Leaf, that’s just the only car out right now; more are coming.

      @tpark103:

      Yes, but you’re getting tuned versions as well. One stock, one tuned.

    Woulda been nice if they let us download/enter GT Academy here in New Zealand……..

    • Jul. 4, 7:58pm
      sangdude82

      They let us download it after a while in NZ but there was no notification on when it was available to download. obviously we couldn’t participate on GT academy but at least we were able to claim gold trophies and get the GT academy cars as prizes.
      Sorry to hear that you’ve missed out and hopefully PD gives those cars away as free DLC for people that couldn’t play GT academy.

    • Jul. 4, 8:57pm
      UrieHusky

      I’m from NZ as well and I just made a US account for my PS3 in order to participate, it might be worth doing the same if you have the free space for a second account ^_^

    • Jul. 4, 9:15pm
      Quakebass

      ^ You can still play GT Academy on your original account if you downloaded it from a different region… At least that’s what I’ve gathered… That’s why the NZ flag is on the GT Academy website. I don’t know if you can still play or GT Academy now, but I got gold on 8-5 after GT Academy ended, and it still claimed that I had won the 370Z, despite not recording my time… You may still be able to get your rewards if you can download and play the Academy…

  53. Jul. 4, 6:43pm

    So they are being given out in stages? wtf? Damn…. and to think I saved up a couple million to be sure I’d tune them all at once…

    • Jul. 4, 8:19pm
      another_jakhole

      But a couple million only takes a couple 6 minute races. I’d understand if it were 10 million credits for a certain car or whatever, but not for 15 minutes of spare time.

      There’s not much you can do to a leaf, and I’m not sure how thoroughly tuned the tuned 370 and GT-R is… And as stated, you don’t need THAT much to tune the cars (but it’s still easy to get), unless you’re purchasing every tire type…

    • Jul. 4, 9:32pm

      no, I know jakhole, I was mostly joking lol. The credits I have are from the TT’s and DT’s… lol

      Why didn’t you download GT Academy then? I’m in a non-participating country and I downloaded it, got all golds and I just recieved my first GT Academy Nissan a couple of hours ago.

    • Jul. 4, 8:35pm
      Amac500

      Ya won’t be in a DLC, if your so panicked and have been getting all the cars like you say then you should have downloaded GT Academy. I mean I downloaded it the day before it ended and got all golds in about 3 hours. Don’t get all upset now you clown, I know how badly you want a Nissan Leaf with a GT Academy sticker slapped on the side.

    • Jul. 4, 9:20pm
      Quakebass

      I got only Gold on 8-5 after GT Academy ended, and it still said I was eligible for the tuned GT-R… So you may still be able to get your prizes if GT Academy is still downloadable and open… Your times won’t be recorded, though.

      Check the community section of Your front page of GT5, if you have a red star next to it click on it. It will take you to the community page and you should see a 1 or star (can’t recall which) next to the gifts icon. Click on the gifts icon and click the receive all link/button. The car will be in the car delivery lorry on the front page. Although it won’t show a number or star next to the lorry. After you click it you should have a car ticket become available. If you don’t then there could be two reasons.

      1 The rollout has reached your local area yet. Give it time
      2 Are you 100% sure you golfed the event.

      By the looks of it the cars are being released 1 day at a time.
      That’s all the help I can offer.
