    Could you also ask him if we can have a patch for online leaderboards and most important one is please ask him to make a patch so we can win credits for online races otherwise online is for nothing tbh

      I think you will find it gets harder as you go up through the classes. Beginner and amateur will be relatively easy as the names suggest. also you could try turning off skid recovery for more authentic and challenging racing, if you have not already.

    Something is off… GT5 froze my PS3… Quarky menus 2. No invite feature so ur friends can’t invite theirs. Very elaborate game.

    Why does the last 50 seconds of install take 15 minutes. Jordan can you ask kaz about it.

    I’m from PR (US territory) and my disc is different than the one showed here. It features the Mercedes Benz in the disc cover not the wheel shown. Is it that the Mercedes disc cover is for US only? Japan and Europe got the wheel cover?

    Ask Yamauchi what he expects from the PS4.

    Augustosrv – you should buy a Playseatz from Amazon to go with your G27, that is what I use with my set up.

    Jordan, drink sangaria and chase latinas…post pics of the chicks! :-) Drive on, playa!!

    Peace.

    Ask him about the brakes Jordan. “So, since there is no option to upgrade the brakes, does that mean all cars come equipped with top of the line brake performance by default?”

      I was about 5 minutes ahead of you.

      Now I’m sitting through the 50 or so minute install on to my HDD.

    Guys, please help. Does anyone know if the Collector’s Edition was LIMITED? Because amazon.com says without stock!

    Or there will be others?

    Thanks!

      @Panchester; yes the Collectors Edition was limited. Try with retailers like Best Buy or Gamestop. Maybe they have Collectos Edition in stock.

      Let the Man know that there is a big community watching his every move!! He better keep us close to his PD team if he want ideas and critics :P

      But first of all, ENJOY THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE JORDAN! Let him know GTP is very much appreciative of PD’s work!

    For all the promotion GTP gives Sony, that Media Pass should be gold plated. Well done, Jordan.

      guys please help!

      I just picked up my collectors edition of GT5 from gamestop and I am installing it as we speak.. the question is though, where is the code for the gamestop cars? I know its a noob question but this is my first preorder ever and I seriously dont know…

    • Nov. 24, 11:55am
      VEYRON STANDARD? WTF

      Jordan you deserve this!!! I hope you have more fun then we are playing GT5. Hopefully they have an open bar right? lol free drinks taste the best!!!!

      to the person commenting about the gamestop cars, call them back, mine did the same thing, they didn’t give you the pre order bonus recipt, I had to call to get my code over the phone, after that go to gamestop.com/code and follow the instructions. code is case sensitive, enter ask him which are in caps or which ones aren’t. gamestop did this very unprofessionally, he said they “just” got the info to hand those out as of when I called back to get mine lol

      Skyline_77 the car code is on your gamestop receipt
