    Third week of October? Seriously?

    That's absolutely great (if true), but it's all a bit too late for me as I'll be occupied with a certain other game and F1 '11.

    Yyyyeeeeaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!

    I'm hoping for those classic GT tracks spotted so long ago on the website for "spec 2.0" and premium cars for the DLC... Unfortunately, this will be me for the next month...

    Hopefully if they use common sense, they will revise arcade mode so you can drive all cars in stock form for leaderboard purposes. Better replay features would be good. It will be good if they improve the physics slightly and add support for wheels such as the G27 fully. They should add a 30FPS mode for people who want better graphics and 3D trees. Switchable graphics a bit like PC.

    Pikes Peak for DLC tracks will be likely and hopefully tracks like Spa and old GT tracks missing will be added. Cars might include the likes of HSV-010 GT .

    I'm hoping for a big update to the game as really the game part does not take that long to make in comparison to other parts. I think PD ran out of time just making the base components so this should hopefully be a good expansion.

    I have to say that I'm not very excited at the perspective of potentially having to pay for new tracks.
    I hope pricing won't get ridiculous (for example all DLC together "worth" more than the game at launch).

    I hope so too and logic suggests it should be if I go by the nature of game developing. That is if PD have not switched resources to GT6 yet fully. In-race saves should help me finally complete the game so I'm looking forward to that the most. Hopefully for the race admins for the WRS, they get their request.

    I will get it if it is reasonably priced. Kaz probably would have given it away for free but Sony must remind him that he is running a business :sly:. The spec updates in GT5P had free content added which was good. I think PD were thinking about giving the game away for free as well back then.

    Anyway beats paying for content that should really have been included in the game that other game developers do. Content PD will be providing will most likely be the latest stuff they have.

    Would you rather face the prospect of no new tracks at all, then? ;)

    I expect a massive overhaul of the both A/B-Spec modes, new tracks, new vehicles and new functionalities.

    This is not an ordinary update, Yamauchi himself said it is "Spec 2.0" update.

    It will be glorious.

    All I want....

    New Race Mod cars:
    Aston Martin DB9 ----> DBR9 GT1
    Ferrari F430 ----> F430 GT2
    Ferrari F458 ----> F458 GTE
    Ferrari F40 ----> F40 GTE
    McLaren F1 ----> '95/96 style F1 GTR
    Lotus Esprit ----> '96 V8 GT1
    Lamborghini Murcielago SV ----> R-SV GT1
    Lamborghini Gallardo ----> LP600 GT3
    Jaguar XKR ----> XKRR GTE
    BMW M3 ----> M3 GTE
    Audi R8 5.2 ----> R8 LMS
    McLaren MP4-12C ----> MP4-12C GT3
    Ford GT ----> Matech GT GT1
    Mercedes Benz SLS AMG ----> SLS GT3

    Tracks:

    If Spec 2 just covers the above and includes features already asked for (livery editor, improvement of features, mid race saves, etc) then I'll be happy.

    People who did not like the game would have already dropped / stopped playing it long time ago. The update can just increase the time people who enjoy the game stay playing it. I won't drop it for it getting better than its current state.
    That is an interesting question, but I would not mind no DLC depending on plans for GT6. Soon as we are getting DLC, it will be interesting to see how much extra content will be made available to buy. Might make GT6 if it is released on PS3 have not much extra content than GT5.
    I'm expecting the same although overhaul of A Spec and B Spec I'm not that sure on. Maybe extra special events and such and overhaul of arcade mode and online. I wonder if they include stunt arenas and also a free roam mode that I heard Kaz said he was interested in doing but that probably is for future games.
