Despite original planning (see below), GT5: Prologue servers and Prologue online services will be prolonged to September 30, 2011.

Initial January plan was to shut down Prologue servers tomorrow, on June 30, as can be seen here:

While abroad GT sites are just reporting September closure, Japanese site gives the whole news.

ORIGINAL POST FROM JANUARY:

Note on Japanese site, probably valid for all regions.

"'Continuing on the start of the sale of of Gran Turismo 5, online service of Gran Turismo 5: Prologue Spec III will be closed 2011 June 30th (Thursday).

We thank you for your support in last years. Please continue to enjoy online experience of Gran Turismo 5 and Gran Turismo 5".

I was taking advantage of the extension to get some gametime in online with it, and I have to admit, there's quite a few jerks on there anymore, it seems.

Okay, I'm new here, and I just bought GT5P; does this mean that I'll get MAYBE a day of online play? That would be truly depressing.

Did you buy a digital or physical copy mate?

Just a couple days left. :(
On the bright side maybe the new servers will benefit GT5 in proper online leader boards or something.
New content is supposed to be coming to GT5 next month so is the servers linked to this?

You won't be able to play online, but the offline content will work just fine.

I was asking because in the description of the PSN it says that the game will work only if you're online, but if I still can play offline mode in the digital copy would be fine. Do you have the digital copy?

All that description means is that you need to be signed in to PSN to play, which is separate from PD's servers for online play.

Can't connect to the servers today at all. Quite annoyed, as I had to reinstall the game data on mine and now only have spec 1 prologue, with seemingly no way to get back to spec 3!
