GT5’s DLC Delayed in North America, Releases October 25 with “Special Bonus” [UPDATE]

October 17th, 2011 by Jordan

Only hours away from release, Sony Computer Entertainment America has announced via Twitter the release of Gran Turismo 5‘s first DLC – including the highly anticipated Spa Francorchamps circuit – has been delayed in North America until October 25th, 2011. No further explanation is offered, but the tweet does mention the content will include a “special bonus” when it is eventually released next week:

Update: GT5 DLC will hit the North American Store on 10/25 but will include a special bonus. Apologies for the inconvenience!

The DLC is presumably still on schedule to be available to the rest of the world on Tuesday, October 18th, at 07:00 UTC (convert this to your local time zone here), according to another tweet from Kazunori Yamauchi earlier today.

UPDATE:  This news apparently comes as a surprise to Kazunori Yamauchi himself, who, according to further Twitter comments, has only just now learned of Sony America’s last-minute change of plans. Fortunately for European gamers, Kazunori has also announced there will be only a slight delay of the content’s release in their region (as of writing, it’s now expected to go live at 09:00 UTC). It is already available in Asian territories.

    I have to say, it’s the bickering fans that get me. Not PD, or Sony. Everyone acts like they’re perfect, never making a mistake, laughable really. Too much anger and ridiculous ranting. I’ve enjoyed the game since its release, grateful to have the means to enjoy it to its full potential. Thank you to all supporters and everyone behind the scenes with a brain and the will to make this game a reality, couldn’t have had it any other way!

    I’d quite haopily wait a week if i the bonus thing was good. but i am from UK. :(

    All I can say is $#@#%$@!!!…. And another thing while I am speaking my mind @#*%!!!!

    Seriously this is just silly, the bonus better be worth waiting for cause I went out of my way today to buy a stupid $20 PSN card and just stayed up 2 hours later than usual just to down load and take a peek at it. When it did not show up I figured there was a problem. To be honest all the BS with issus, patches, pushed release dates and such is making me loose my passion for this game franchise and I have been a HUGE fan since GT1 (Heck its the main reason I bought a PS2 instead of an XBox and a PS3 instead of a XBox360)…. What ever, Battlefield 3 comes out same day and I will be playing that instead.

    disappointing for us guys……. but you can’t blame pd for this one… seems nth american sony didnt get their act together for one reason or another… otherwise it would have been delayed worldwide….

    i know it doesn’t make the pain go away but hopefully you guys will get something special in yr bonus (other than horn #33) and the rest of us will wish we had a 1 week delay……

    It’s bs that you guys get a special bonus. They should delay it for every one then.Like what did Aus get that no one else go NOTHING and the US and Europe get all this cool free s*!t!!

    I rather have my GT Home non-animated, fully 2D menus load instantaneously, the GT Auto load every sub-menu individually on selection instead of loading EVERYTHING at once when I simply need to change the oil or paint color. This is stupid, they said UI was going to get improved in 2.0, guess it’s like cake…

  18. Oct. 18, 1:04am
    grashopper

    If anyone is upset at the delay you can search all regions in the GT5 lobby selection screen and visit Spa without even owning the DLC. GT5 works like LittleBigPlanet and as long as the host owns the dlc track everyone in the lobby can use it.

    Well, I can Wait another week. Doesn’t Matter, Bonus or Not. I own all the GT Titles, (Including GT1, a JPN Copy of which I had to Mod Chip Installed in my PS1 to Play it.) One week is not going to kill me. At least it’s not 4 years. What you should be worried about is if there’s going to be a price change with the bonus, don’t rule that out.

    Red Bull X2011 Protytpe ’11, Honda CR-Z Touring Car, Subaru Impreza Touring Car, Mazda Roadster Touring Car, Spa Francorchamps and the Helmet and Suit Package are the things that I’m looking forward to.

    I can wait another week for that. I can do other things on GT5 by then. Is it the end of the F***ing World? No. The Aussie Bloaks were Bitchin about North America getting it before we were suppose to get it. Ya Happy Now Mate?

    The Fact of the Matter is, Be Patient, Work on other Parts of the Game, Go online with other People in the game. It’s Not the end of the World. If it’s still Bothering you, Tune off the PS3, Put the Contoller Down , Then GO OUTSIDE!

    Somehow this “Delay” seems to be because of Dan Wheldon… maybe they wanted to include some racing suit or something of Dan and thats why they might have delayed the DLC here in the US….

      As appropriate as that would be, i do have doubts whether this this the reason. Remember, Kaza-whatever-his-name-is didn’t know himself until not long ago, so if it was extra content, he’d be one of the first to know.
      Then again, I could be completely wrong :)

    ya that sucks big but ill play something else or race. the new patch is amazing 10th patch too they know how to stand beside there game i think it’s PSN they did this with the red dead redemption dlc too PSN office (america) is a separate laziness do try to keep this in mind people and lets show our respect for making an awsome game and PATCHES.

    It’s pretty safe to say that the ‘special bonus’ will most likely be a Ray Gun mounted to the back of all Bugatti Veyrons…. anyone want to second that?? :P

    For all you Americans and other people saying to make an alt account from either EU, or Australia, or any other region just to get the DLC, that content WON’T WORK if you have an American version of GT5.
    If for some reason you have an Australian copy of the game then yes, download it from the Aussie store and it’ll work, but the content will not work if your game doesn’t match the region of the DLC.
    I’m from Australia and got a code for the Edge Camero, downloaded it from my US account and it wasn’t in the game, neither was it in my US account of GT5 either, that’s cos I had an Australian/PAL version of GT5

    I live in Tokyo so I should not care, but I share North American players’ frustration. And to a further extent, it will be very frustrating for players from the rest of the world to see American and Canadian players enjoy an exclusive bonus on the 25th(?).
    Bad move from Sony and PD…

    Im not from North America but totally understand how frustrating this is for the guys who are, the only thing i can think of to make your day better is that only the room host needs to own the dlc and use Spa for the other guys in the room to be able to race there, not sure thats much consolation but im sure 90% of rooms will be using Spa for a while.

    • Oct. 18, 12:03am
      xNeroZero

      Do you know how dumb you sound right now. Anyone from North America can make an alt PSN and download it that way if their credit card matches that regions credit card system.

    • Oct. 18, 12:08am

      LOL every major credit card is accepted worldwide, how old are you?

    • Oct. 18, 12:13am
      Nastradamus87

      lalaurentide, how ignorant are you?
      To download from a region’s PSN you have to have a registered account with that PSN. To have a registered account with a region’s PSN you have to have a credit card which has a billing address in the region you buying from.

    • Oct. 18, 12:17am
      xNeroZero

      or couldn’t you just got out an buy a $20 psn card?

    • Oct. 18, 12:20am
      Nastradamus87

      Ya, it’s that easy. We can all walk to our local store and buy a pre-paid PSN card for a different region. Online retailers add markup on the pre-paid cards they sell. On top of this the majority do not send you the code immediately; you have to wait for the card to be shipped to you. What you two are suggesting here is NOT A FEASIBLE solution, so stop talking down to other people like they are missing an obvious solution.

    • Oct. 18, 12:51am
      lalaurentide

      @Nastradamus87
      The billing address doesn’t need to be in that region.

    • Oct. 18, 12:59am
      Nastradamus87

      Proof?
      If you’re right then I’ll be glad, but I don’t believe you are. You can download free items simply by creating at account for another region, but you cannot BUY items without a credit card registered to the account or a PSN pre-paid card for the region.

      I think I saw an earlier post of yours where you said your friend in one region downloads stuff from another region. If that is your only proof then that isn’t good enough. No one else is backing you up, I searched online and everything I read disagreed with what you are saying, and I find it very hard to believe that the other hundred or so people posting on this page don’t have this obvious knowledge that you can simply by the DLC from another region.

      While I may be wrong, I have some good reasons for believing what I believe. What are you reasons exactly?

    • Oct. 18, 9:46pm
      lalaurentide

      You can add any credit card to any PSN account, I can use my credit card for my US, UK and Japanes PSN accounts, your PSN account is region locked that is true, but you can attach any credit card to any PSN account. I don’t know if you can use the same credit card for more than one account, then you’d have to delete it from the payment setting. Anyway, as I said GT5 is region locked, only the BCUS PSN Store have the BCUS compatible dlc.

  49. Oct. 17, 11:58pm
    Adrian5

    Now if I don’t see a freaking Polestar Volvo C30 as the “special bonus” I’m going to flip a bitch.

  50. Oct. 17, 11:58pm
    xNeroZero

    People, stop overreacting. Make a different PSN buy it from the Australian store if you North American people want it so bad.

    • Oct. 18, 12:07am
      lalaurentide

      Doesn’t the Australians have the “PAL” version, GT5 DLC is region locked, I got the free chromelines from the UK store and cannot use them with my BCUS game disc, don’t say that unless you tested yourself whether or not it will work.

      The strange thing about the delay is that the DLC is complete, there is NO reason for it to be delayed, especially in a specific region?

      Anyway, one track won’t bring me back to the game that much, especially with the removal of 3X credits on seasonal, if at least there was seasonal endurance events.

    • Oct. 18, 12:15am
      xNeroZero

      I was assuming that you could download it from a different store. I have a friend that downloads Japanese stuff from their store and he’s from USA.

    • Oct. 18, 12:55am
      lalaurentide

      I know, I do too, but some games’ DLC are locked to their respective region, my Assassin Creed 2 DLC is only compatible with the BCUS disc, some games have region free DLC and can be install on any version, which isn’t the case with GT5.

      If that’s what the bonus turns out to be, I’ll be sincerely disappointed, no, make that DISGUSTED with PD for doing that. To release something like that is fine, IF it were FREE. However, to delay the release of DLC so they can add that to increase sales and to in some way profit from his death is downright unconscionable.

    • Oct. 18, 11:50am
      dmz_bean

      I did the same exact thing Sunday. I ended up returning both the Xbox and Forza already though. It was really nicely polished, the car and track models looked really good and there were a few features it has that I wish GT5 had like the livery editor but the driving physics killed it for me. It was nearly impossible for me to keep a smooth line with any car. Even with all the driving aids set to simulation.

      The problem was the steering and braking. There was subtlety to them. Making minor corrections while going around turns or straights wasn’t happening. Either there was no input, or it was on full lock. I couldn’t take it. So I returned them both.

      It was definitely worth checking out though. I’d just recommend that you rent it instead of outright buying it.
