    Anyone else get the 90 second looked at the screen the wrong way penalty? The penalty system better be better in 6 because this is unacceptable and someone should be punched multiple times for this complete lack of competence.

  2. I want this prizes in GT6.

    There’s a fairly beefy OCD update this time around! 32 cars.

    Can’t wait for these “latest” to be last… And then on 6

      ^ Agreed.

    • I really doubt that GT5 Seasonal events are a problem for Seasonal Events in GT6. My opinion is that to create a racing event in the GT6 is currently the biggest problem is the stupid AI. With this AI Poliphony simply can not make a good event. Also, there are other problems that Gran Turismo 6 have; tire wear, entries in the pit, problems with sounds and graphics on some tracks, etc.

      Today we get a new GT5 A-Spec NASCAR event with four races (other they have five races), and 3 Time Trial event for GT6, a total of seven individual events, the usual eighth.
      Next week we will receive only one Time and Drift Trial event in GT5, and Gran Turismo 6 is unlikely to be nothing, then only two events. Why?

      OK, maybe the problem partly lies in the fact that GT5 still have 40 active A and B-Spec Events, plus TT and DT. But I think it’s not the only reason

      That doesn’t change the fact that in 5 you make nearly 100x more credits (with 200% login and pp) than we currently can in 6
