    Gran Turismo HD online time leaderboard still working since december 2006. But GT5 and GT6 servers are off.
    :/

    That would be some amazing news. What is your opinion on Course Maker Tracks? They might be accessible too. I mean I can still watch replays of races on these, so …

    (I mean IF a hidden LAN mode in GT6 could be accessed in the future)

    If you mean Gran Turismo 6's Course Maker courses, you can still drive on them. A means and a method does exist as shown here.

    As for LAN Mode in GT6, I still haven't found any obvious clues. And the clues I have found didn't lead anywhere. GT5 however was just a freak accident on discovery, I could say. The icon for "Online Race" has been there forever in the top menu, as you can put it on the top menu with the use of the game's Secret Settings. The "LAN Battle" option has also been there since Version 2.08 of the game, but it never worked...up until know, where the fix was just changing the configuration of the game.

    GT6 is not quite the same as GT5 internally. While there are traces of a "LAN Party" icon in GT6, I haven't found a way to make it show itself...yet.

    On the part about GT Sport having a hidden LAN mode for World Tour events, how does this make it fully independent of internet? As of right now, there is no way to save the game or access brand central without an internet connection. In fact, the consumer version released in stores is wholly dependent on an internet connection just to save. To save! I can't even save in Arcade or Campaign mode after winning credits or winning endurance league races. No buying cars from brand central either. Personally I think its a joke how most games require internet for solo play. I bought the game, let me access everything and leave the internet stuff optional.

    Thing is they could've keep it running for close to 0$.. So if ther are players whod still like to play they could even charge some money (not much obviously). For me 5 is better than sport in many ways so what do you even doing on forum of hundred year old game?
