Gran Turismo 5 DLC Releases in North America Today [UPDATE]

Though there’s still been no explanation from Sony regarding the delay of Gran Turismo 5’s first batch of DLC in North America, its release date of October 25th is finally here. The exact time the new content will become available in the PlayStation Store is not known, though it will likely be in the afternoon, Eastern Time (Edit: Confirmed as 14.00PST through Twitter).

As you’ve probably heard by now, the new content includes two new tracks (most notably, Spa Francorchamps), 15 new cars, 100 new paint colors, and new suits and helmets. Each pack can be purchased separately or together in one bundle for $11.99.

For all the details, read our complete set of Gran Turismo 5 DLC Frequently Asked Questions, which includes information on how to buy it, how to install it, and everything in between. See you at Eau Rouge!

*** UPDATE ***

Though the content has been officially released, as you’ve probably seen in the comments below and in our forums, there is a problem with the North American GT5 DLC packs. Though you can complete the purchase from the PlayStation Store, the content itself does not actually appear in the game.

If it’s any consolation, everyone is currently experiencing this issue, so it’s best to just sit tight until SCEA can correct the problem. As always, stay tuned to GTPlanet’s blog and forums as this story develops.

*** UPDATE 2 ***

The North American DLC installation issues appear to have been resolved. Be sure to click the round “DLC” icon in GT5’s main menu after purchasing the content to activate it. As mentioned, read our DLC FAQ for more help.

    any canada psn get their DLC? Why mine still says”no purchased content found” its 2 days already!! whats worry??? I got the 2.01 but it still not work

    1. lldantell

      You have to buy it from the playstation store and wait for like an hour or just buy it right now if it shows up in the dlc button

    2. pspwsh

      I have bought the DLC on Oct 25, and I can see the DLC in the service list only, but in the game it still says”no purchased content found” i

    3. gneius

      I’ve got the same problem as you. Called Sony and they cannot resolve it either. It appears to be a problem if you have your system and disk from different regions. My PS3 is region 1 and my disk was brought back from Hongkong (region 3). So I borrowed my friend’s region 1 disk and those content start to show up. The only problem is it won’t allow me load the saved progress from my other install. I am not going to start from scratch again. Those stupid restrictions. Looks like our hard earned $12 just got wasted!

    4. pspwsh

      but I got the ps3 and gt5 all in canada, I even start a new canada psn account just for this the DLC this time. I don’t why all my stuffs are form the same region, it still not work. by the way I have got in touch with sony, they said they need more time, and If the DLC still no work for me then they will try to refund the money back to my psn wallet.

  2. panjandrum

    Mine eventually showed up. It took somewhere around 5 hours for that to happen, but in the end everything worked properly.

  3. Renan GTRedKim

    I’m from Brazil and I don’t get DLC unless I create an US account, with 0% progression in GT5. Thx, PD! =(

  4. saturn01

    My little girls like to “play dress-up” with my cars so they much appreciated the two hott pink and purple flourescent colors. I (we) are now the proud owner of a hot pink Nissan March. They were screaming that high pitched girl scream like it was a Disney Princess birthday party or something. Thanks PD! I think… :)

  5. Rphilip

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU KAZ! The DLC is much appreciated. The cars are awesome, the detail on the cars is awesome , thanks for letting us change the wheels and colors on the new cars too!In photo mode the new cars look stunning! Spa is SPECTACULAR! The karting track is cool, fun and different. This first batch of DLC is great! Looking forward to other DLC packs… please think about for the future packs maybe giving us exotic cars, or legendary race cars, etc. Even iconic race cars such as the Speed Source Mazda RX-8 that won the famed 24 hour Rolex race not once, but twice! A great victory to all Mazda fans and brand since the 787B won Le mans.

    Also consider adding the classic tracks or even some famed race circuits like Bathhurst , Silverstone, Sebring. Whatever you do we the true GT fans wilkl support and appreciate your hard working efforts! Been here since the first Gt and will be there till you say your done! Thanks KAZ!!!!

  6. erik1127

    I bought it twice and thirty cars showed up. Two of each , I am going to keep. Tune 1 and keep one stock. Anyone else have this happen?

    1. Watain

      nope, i was smart and waited a few hours after the DLC just came out, so 8:45 or so, then purchased the pack, went the GT main page, clicked the DLC button, and everything was there
      too many people freaked out to early
      patience can be your best friend

    2. gt5fanatec

      I purchased it and it gave me a stealth nsx and theme but nothing else then a while later the option came up in the DLC icon in gt5 to install what I actually paid for. Thank goodness for that I didn’t want to pay twice.

    3. R1SHORT

      yes i ended up buying it twice also(complete pack), i got two of each car( that can’t be given) but i wonder why i didn’t get two of each color? I couldn’t give the colors either.

    4. civic_hybrid

      I bought it twice too thinking it hadnt worked the first time. IT would be nice if PSN knew I was buying the same freakin thing more than once…oh well early bird gets two worms…

  7. Saltypnut

    I think that last update was completely stupid. Use common sense did no one see the DLC button on the home screen. Duh

    1. eric1971

      People were going to the DLC button. The problem was, there was nothing there. Even after purchasing it from the PSN Store. For at least an hour, people were purchasing the content and getting nothing.

  8. SeaWall

    ****************people who did not get their DLC, should do a PS3 SYSTEM ACTIVATION under Account Management, after doing different things to get the DLC the system activation worked for me. so try it. P.S. i made a separet thread because i wanted people to see this quick solution to the problem.***************

  9. to500mo

    For all of u who have accidentally bought the DLC twice good news!
    I got a positive reply from PSN saying that they may be able to give me a full refund for the accidentally bought one!

    1. 3card

      Great news! I ALSO received positive feedback from PSN as to refunding my accidental double DLC purchase… Huzzah!!!

      Sony USA PSN- 800-345-7669, option 0

  10. HatmanTC

    has anyone tried taking any photos on SPA? i ran a few laps, then went to take pictures and they all came out all black..

  11. vabeach311

    It took mine nearly an hour from time of purchase until it showed up in the DLC button inside the game. If there was going to be a delay they should of said so ahead of time.

  12. slick1ru2

    Everyone gets the same color cars. :( And the GT-R 35, can’t change the number on it.

    And if you bought the DLC early and have plus, call Sony, they will give you a $3 credit to your wallet.

  13. SeaWall

    extremely irritated still have not received the DLC and i called 1800 SONY bla bla bla and they told me they will investigate up to 7 business days

    1. cdanolo

      I know a bunch of us bought the DLC real early (when they were apparently having tons of problems) and later folks started getting their DLC but, I’m trying to find out if most of those early guys (like me) did finally get their DLC or if many others (like me) are still without! I keep thinking that it’s going to be available ‘this time’ when I go in there but unfortunately, I keep trying (and turning the system completely off and back on) and nothing changes. I got the NSX Blk Racer and no more.
      Come on Sony! Am I going to have to call these turkeys?

    2. RabidShark

      forgive me if it has been said but after buying it at the ps store did you check the download button at the gt5 main menu i had to get it there after buying.

    3. A_Higher_Place

      Yes we did. I bought mine literally @ 5:01pm and have had issues since. Still haven’t seen anything under that DLC button.

    4. RabidShark

      they should shut down the store update it then bring it back up i noticed they updated real time meaning stuff was popping up over time which is odd.

    5. SeaWall

      i bought the DLC at 5:00CST and then i checked Service List the course car suit paint packs are all there but when i checked the Download List no course car suit paint pack which i bought. and then i check the main GT5 menu Downloaded Content says “No Content Purchased”. and i keep turning on and off the ps3 to see if the damn DLC is there but no DLC so far. called the 1800 number they said that they are looking into it may take up to 7 days to fix. WOW i just hope they give it to me by tonight or i’ll be pissed. going to call them tomorrow if i don’t get it tonight.

  14. Watain

    ive raced alot on the new kart tracks so far (yes you get two) one has an extra little bit of couse two it – same track, 2 different variations
    and all i have to say is that its freaking awesome
    i love the colours, i love how the track handles
    by far, the best kart tack, no question!

  15. TeamCZRRacing

    Am I the only one who thinks that the new cars should be available in the dealerships as well as as gift cars? Personally I was a bit disappointed when I went to the GT dealership and discovered that the two new karts weren’t there.

  16. Castlevania1979

    Having read all the posts from earlier tonight made me a bit reluctant to purchase the DLC today but since the last few posts were success stories I decided to give it a shot; well once I went to the PS Store and got the full pack for $11.99 the only 2 items you could download right then and there were the stealth car & the theme (major bummer or so I thought) but when you actually start up the game and go to the DLC button there I found all the other features of the pack (racing cars, racing gear, paint & courses). In summation I went from being all upset that I too got burned to straight up happiness for getting everything that I paid for with no issues at all! Now I’m off to the races! Salud!

  17. elston87

    Downloaded the DLC;

    I don’t care about the X2011 really; it bores the hell outta me. They just added a wing to the chassis and made the car corner in a snappier fashion, and so it’s nothing special to brag about. Really, it’s another toy for all of those wallbanging kids out there to pester legitimate racers with…

    The other cars (and karts) look very interesting to drive. In particular, the hybrid touring cars look like a thrill to drive about on ‘Ring.

    As for the new circuits, I have yet to try them out; well I did try out Spa. It’s not too shabby, and it’s definitely a challenge to master…

    The other items? Haven’t looked into them as of yet, but I plan to. I don’t know what to do with my other $8 left over on PSN though. Oh well…

    I hope you’re happy with my money PD… :|

  18. MoTK70

    No problems downloading / installing in AZ. 6:10pm local time. Looks like you can’t personalize the number on the GTR-R35 TC.

  19. sebby10100

    It is out in canada. i got it like an hour ago. type Gran Turismo 5 in the search and scroll down if you havent found it :)

  20. fitftw

    The Miata has 197hp/143tq and weighs 1,753lbs and 472pp.

    Tunable to 264hp/182tq turbo. 257hp/204tq supercharged. Both 515pp.

    I prefer supercharged for the extra 22tq and zero lag.

    1. TeamCZRRacing

      What you get when you download it is an unlock code. Basically, the item that you actually downloaded sends a code to the game saying “OK, I’ve been downloaded, now unlock all this stuff for regular play.” It’s a tactic everyone who develops a DLC-compatible game uses. BioWare, Bethesda Softworks, EA Black Box, Polyphony Digital…they all do it.

  21. armydude

    anybody having issues adding money to the wallet? it like charging me $1 every time i try to put my information, and then it says that the information is not valid. but at my account info of my credit card, it says “$1 pending for playstation network…” what the hell???

    1. pspwsh

      it might be your address problems, your credit card bill address have to be the same address on your psn ithink

    1. gravydavy35

      I bought it twice can someone give me the Sony number for a refund? It worked on the second try. I wonder how many ppl paid $22 for this stupid thing.

  22. Primus Ortus

    Mine came with a Audi R18! Just kidding. No really! No, I’m just kidding. This thread has been very funny to read. Thanks for the entertainment, now I’ll get back to work… :(

    1. 30psi

      i feel your pain, i did the same thing after buying the complete pack. it was only showing i bought the track pack. they better give another BONUS!!

  23. TeamCZRRacing

    Patience pays. I’m in the process of redeeming all my gift car coupons as we speak. :D
    +1 to Sony for getting the problem fixed so quickly!

    1. TeamCZRRacing

      @gravydavy35 Well, keep trying. That’s all I can say. If nothing else works, you’ll have to buy it again. :(

  24. cdanolo

    my son just now got home, went in and bought the full pack and it worked fine when he went in to the game! Can you believe that?!


  25. masaki7026

    Load up GT5, then go to the Downloaded Content button. It’ll be there if you bought it!

    Hopefully they don’t have these problems in the future.

  26. RamRod003

    I am so glad that I am in the middle of a 24 hour race otherwise I would have bought the dlc the second it came out and been screwed. I hope everything works out for everyone else.

  27. Ramosis

    Just connect in GT5, and the itens are appearing inside DLC button (just installed Racing Car Pack).

    Yes, here we go!!!

    1. GTP_Willis

      Is that the “official” solution? Or are some people still being told it’ll be fixed (today, tomorrow, next week)?

    2. gravydavy35

      Is anyone getting it .I purchasced it but nothing .Should I wait or should i call for refund and where is my proof of purchace

  28. ismellbacon611

    idk if you guys know. but you can join races online that are at spa even tho you dont have the map pack.. i raced there yesterday, just go to open lobby and select any region.. then a few spa races should pop up!! :D hope it takes some stress off of people…

  29. WJHMH

    Still waiting, but I’m finding out other people said they already downloaded but not showing up as a saved file. SONY/PD love f#cking over their customers, don’t they?

  30. HPUnleashed

    Wow I’m glad I haven’t bought it. I think they’re hiding it from the download list that way it can only be tied to one account by going downloading the content through the actual game.

  31. Fraley27

    called lady she was really nice she refunded my money and she said it was a bad download and it will be a complete new one and it will be in 10 to 12 busiess days

  32. Maddens Raiders

    I’m on the on the phone with SNE tech support as I type this. They are going to refund my money and told me it might take 7 – 10 days to correct the issue. I lol’d.

  33. slytube

    I just called PSN customer service they set me up with a refund and they said to try again later today or tomorrow. Refund will take from 5 to 10 days.

  34. Caio

    Correcting the information above, the DLC is not available in Brazil yet. And, sincerely, I do not have faith it will be one day.

  35. blue night

    LMAO!! Thank God I come to this site every day before going to PSN. I was about to buy it and not get anything. I know it will be fixed eventually but that would pissed me so off. Don’t forget to rate it One Star to warn people.

  36. HPUnleashed

    Has anyone checked for the DLC by starting the game and going to the DLC button on the main menu? I’m pretty sure that’s how you get the DLC after purchasing it in the store, not by going to your download list. I have gotten it yet, or I would check it myself.

    1. GTP_Willis

      We’ve done it. The problem is that there’s no option to download it on the PS store after you actually buy it. Just, “here’s an NSX! Thanks for the $12!”

  37. GRAFX21

    the other thing i question is…why would they just release the NSX? Why not all the f**** content!?????

    Bet you cant answer that huh PD? niether can anyone of you. And that is straight BS!

    1. TeamCZRRacing

      For God’s sake man, lay off PD. All they did was make it and give it to Sony. Whatever happens now, it’s out of PD’s hands. Besides, as I said above, it’s humanly impossible to upgrade an entire server farm of 1,000 servers to deal with 9,000,000 people logging on all at once in one week. Just give it an hour.

  38. Revnne

    Well then why doesn’t Sony get Osimo to do it, robots don’t make mistakes, Oh wait they fall down steps tho. Haha

    1. cdanolo

      Bottom line is; haven’t seen a single post by anyone who’s actually gotten their content soooo, whatever the problem is, it’ll be taken care of. I was much more freaked out when I thought I was the only unlucky bas_ard and I would be forever fighting with Sony to get my dlc. The problem appears to be across the board gents so, as horrible as it sounds, at least we’re all waiting together (ducking ;-)

      Hank in there!

    1. It's me

      Yeah they make mistakes but mistakes that pay the millions of dollars and be fine with ripping people off. O sent them and email and they replied “oh well”

    1. Spork

      WTF does a completely unrelated game from a different genre has to do with GT5 DLC? Everywhere else got the DLC a week before us.

  39. GRAFX21

    no server is overloaded. use common sense. if that were the case. they would of randomly released DLC when they wanted…not tellingus what time and then expecting a crashed server..doosh

    1. XxTH3_ST1GxX

      you are a troll sent by sony. lol jk. but in all seriousness, the data was never added to the DLC “premium package”. i’m pretty sure its in the individual but not the whole.

  40. TeamCZRRacing

    Jesus, guys, it’s not Polyphony’s fault (or Sony’s, for that matter), it’s ours. The reason we’re unable to download it at the moment is because the servers are overloaded with users trying to download this stuff. Try again in an hour; if that doesn’t work, try again in another hour. Agonizing, but simple.

    1. lilmann73

      Thank you! Finally someone understands. I don’t see how people can be so dumb in the head to not be able to wrap their heads around the concept of waiting.

    2. XxTH3_ST1GxX

      i’m not one complaining around here, but the content isn’t even in the pack. i’m gonna leave it at that. don’t defend sony, they messed up… but i’m not going to condemn them either because people make mistakes.

    3. TeamCZRRacing

      @XxTH3_STGxX Well, Gran Turismo 5 has sold probably about 10-12,000,000 copies to date, and if I had to take a guess, there are probably 9,000,000 people trying to download this DLC. It doesn’t matter if you’ve got a week to do it, it’s impossible to upgrade an entire server farm of probably 1,000 servers to deal with a sudden influx of 9,000,000 users, especially in such a short amount of time. Wait and try again at 6:15 (or 5:15, or whatever time it is where you live). Like I said, agonizing, but simple.

      BTW: I’m not trying to be argumentative, just factual, so don’t take me the wrong way. :)

    4. TokoTurismo

      @TeamCZRRacing and lilmann73
      Thank you guys. :) Those words should teach the complainers a thing or two. Waiting is the key, rushing you won’t get anything… That is all. I’ve also heard from the comments the DLC is working now. See when you wait, good things happen. + never blame PD and Sony, ever…

  41. It's me

    I say we sue them! Have all of our lawyers against their 98 lawyers… I already have them beat cause I have 128 lawyers hahahahaha!

    1. Diatribe777

      You can’t anymore..well at least a class action lawsuit. When you agreed to the ToS a month ago, you, (we) lost the right.

  42. Spork

    As a PAYING customer I have every right to complain about receiving inadequate service on Sony’s part. I paid for a product that I SHOULD have received immediately after transaction. You Sony apologists are annoying.

    1. fwaldman

      so lets say you were buying a product off amazon or ebay, and you paid for it and it has to be shipped to you, do you complain then as well?

    2. Spork

      No. Something I buy on Amazon or eBay is physical. Expecting to receive it instantaneously is unreasonable.

      But the product at question here is something we ALREADY downloaded and only needs a few kb of data to UNLOCK IT. Big difference.

    3. 050999742

      Calm down you spoiled brat, learn patience and self control. People like you make all Americans look like complete morons.

  43. tazj_7

    Ok now I’m pissed, first we had to wait a week for one extra car that could have been unlocked at any time and a theme that no one will probably use and we still have to wait. This sucks, Sony needs to handle things better next time because this doesn’t make any sense

    1. lilmann73

      Server overload maybe? Sony is probably trying to get servers to handle this many brats trying to download the DLC.

  44. lilmann73

    I find it a bit rude how many comments are being shot at Sony and PD making them seem inhumane.
    Here’s how I see it: Sony is trying to get the DLC up and running, and is probably having major server issues because of all of the people trying to download it. Wait for them to get the servers adjusted, and you can get your DLC.
    IT IS NOT POLYPHONY DIGITAL’S FAULT! All PD did was make the DLC and hand it off to Sony. Stop calling them out.
    I had no idea people could be such brats that they think the world revolves around them. “WTF! Where DLC is?!?!1 I bought it an isn’t showed up!!11!”
    Seriously guys, shutup. I think you have the capability to sustain life long enough to see the DLC in an hour or so.

    1. spapadillion

      If it was free I’d tend to agree with you, but we’re being offered a service for a fee and recieving nothing once that fee is paid.

    2. masaki7026

      I agree on Polyphony Digital-it isn’t their fault. I bet Kaz would be a little pissed if he found this out, and if it had to be delayed even further.

  45. XxTH3_ST1GxX

    yea whats the worse that could happen… worst case scenario is we get a refund, and we don’t get the original content and most likely will be delayed. but hey, look at it this way, we got the theme and GT500 NSX for free. most likely there will be another bonus… How about another stealth car?

  46. Rcrcool

    You all should be lucky you can at least buy the DLC right now. I have to wait until I am done with a Marching Band Exhibition (9 PM CMT) to purchase the content. By then you should all have the content so STFU!!!

  47. JasonMann

    whats worse is there is supposed to be more in the pack, and how are we going to get the stuff if we already bought it?

  48. JasonMann

    why couldnt pd be civilized humans and just make us download the actual cars rather than the unlock key? Its worse knowing that everything is already on the game, and we have to purchase 1200kb for 1200 cents

  49. Nissan Lover


    This happened to me on TDU2 when i bought some DLCs from them.

    Wait until tomorrow for the DLC to load up

  50. XxTH3_ST1GxX

    the content for the package simply isn’t in the download… 2 items when it should have been like 7 items in our cart. NSX GT500, Theme, Tracks, Paint, Cars, Gear.

  51. jtwraj

    Sony customer support: 800-345-7669. But they have no answers and the guy I spoke to had no idea this was a widespread problem. Clueless!!!

  52. jomama2010


    Poly….Ummm….yeah……if it was ready at original date…how come it isn’t ready now?

  53. speedracer*

    same thing happened to me. bought the complete pack, got the NSX and thats it. wish i had read this first! where do i go from here?

    1. Maddens Raiders

      Nice way to insult this guy guys. He’s not the only one. When you purchased this stuff the first time it just shows up as the NSX and a theme in your download list, so you think to yourself that it must not have gotten everything and you only paid for something less. Sad thing is that you DID pay full price and are getting ripped off straight away, but if you don’t know, then you’ll go purchase it again thinking that you’ll get the paints, maps, etc. I did and promise you, I’m not a dope.

  54. JasonMann

    You guys, to get this straight. If ALL of us bought it, and we didnt get it, PD will be forced to refund us. So whatever, if we dont get it, they will have to do something about it. So now we wait. Oh nvm its 6:01

  55. jtwraj

    Currently talking to Sony customer support and they have no answers for why it’s happening but they are telling me to wait until the end of the day tomorrow to see if my content magically appears before calling them back!!! So much for the support!!!

    1. Maddens Raiders

      Yep I should’ve warned you mate:

      The people working for Sony in California are about as informed about the PS3 and it’s games as the poor sap sitting underneath the overpass downtown (learned from years of personal experience). Only thing is the homeless guy has one hell of an excuse!

  56. GregTheStig

    The amount of people raging in this section is hilarious. If you bought the stuff already it will show up in like 2 mins.

  57. masaki7026

    On a random note to break this worthless tension, how do you feel about seeing DAYTONA USA on PlayStation Store? I haven’t played that game in a long time!

  58. MoparPit

    The crap does not work!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF!!!! You buy the items but the game can’t find your items!!! What a Fing JOKE!!!

  59. panjandrum

    Yeah, I would hold off on your purchases. I happened to actually have a few spare minutes today (rare) and decided to purchase this. I was aware of the single-account issue and purchased the full bundle, being sure the use the account I play GT5 in. No luck. I got the NSX and the theme but nothing else. Something is wrong with their system currently I would guess. Maybe just overloaded I hope and it might just magically show up later. But either way, you are probably better off waiting until it’s working properly.

  60. WanderingSoul

    Just bought the complete pack, but the PSN thinks I got only the track pack. So… I just bought the track pack for 12 bucks… Trying to contact Sony about the issue.

    1. WanderingSoul

      Hoping they can fix this… I have the email receipt proving I purchased the complete pack and not the track pack like the store says I did.

  61. Maddens Raiders

    Bought the freaking bundle TWICE and only got the NSX and the theme. When I go into GT5a and push the downloadable content it just says “No purchased content found.” Blood pressure rising….

  62. Sez6

    I have the same error. I really hope that PD fix this issue, i never had problems buying from the PSN store before.

    hmmm, that’s weird, now the DLC is shown under GT5 in the add-ons, but i paid for the COMPLETE PACK and it shows the red bag next to the COURSE PACK???? and i got the email confirmation of the 12 bucks………….damn you PD! and PS STORE!

  64. 88FoxBodyFan

    I have never had so much trouble with DLC in my entire life. If SCEA & PD can’t do crap any better than this they shouldn’t even bother.

  65. MKLINGS1994

    my theory is that whoever paid for the DLC pack (including myself) will have it downloaded by 6 pm after everything is updated, so we spent the money already, got our NSX Stealth already, but hopefully it will download once 6 pm comes……….what an annoying day, courtesy of PD

  66. GTP_Willis

    Well if I ran the world… :-D I’d actually program the download before I put the icon up for purchase on PSN. You’ve gotta figure people wouldn’t be too happy when they think they paid $12 for a little blue bag on the icon. Whoopie!

  67. Nastradamus87

    The western United States and Canada are observing PDT right now not PST.
    PSD = PST + (1 hour), meaning the PSN store doesn’t update for another 45 minutes.
    I think you guys are all an hour early to the party.
    The DLC hasn’t been released yet despite it letting us purchase it. We will get it in 30 minutes, which is actually the time they promised us it would be up. Don’t be mad at other people because you jumped the gun and it’s not working.

    I already downloaded the complete pack. Only the theme and stealth NSX are appearing right now. The TC cars, tracks, and everything else should arrive soon.

    i dont give a crap what time zone im in…25th is the 25th…release the beast already! USA been waiting forever. plus im paying for the DLC…so why must i wait more? this should release at midnight

    1. Nastradamus87

      You’re right. A team of Sony techs and managers should work through the night so we can have the DLC at EXXXXXACTLY midnight. Are you people deranged, or what? You would really have people work through the night and be away from their families so you can play a game a few hours earlier. You’re perspective or how the world should work is frightening.

  69. masaki7026

    Don’t blame PD on everything-they only MAKE the DLC content. I think they rely on Sony to distribute it via the PlayStation Store. I think Kaz would be not impressed if it was Sony’s work-he’d come straight away with an answer if it was his and PD’s fault.

  70. Skyline_77

    jeez people can be so stupid with timezones.

    as for people who actually got it early, how on earth is this polyphonys fault that you’re not recieving it?

    But try this, go to account management > transaction management > download list. if you really did buy it then your content should be there.

    1. Skyline_77

      and if nothing, then wait until it actually officially releases.. which is in 29 minutes I believe? then check again.

  71. Ix-M0NTANA-xI

    why cant we get a straight falken answer? beyond ridiculous now . how can such a large company who relies on loyal happy custmers have such poor communication with us? twitter?? really? lol … never been accurate either. disappointment is an undestatement.

  72. JasonMann


  73. GregTheStig

    Is everyone here ignoring the posts that say “It’s coming at 6, not 5 because the PS Store is on daylight time, not standard time”?

    It will be here in 30 minutes, and those who already paid for it will probably get it at 6 when it actually goes live.

  74. GRAFX21

    this sucks…here come the f**** wait game yet again. Glad im not at home or i would of smashed my 70″inch bravia

  75. It's me

    So I paid 11dollars and it doesn’t even say I bought it and it still took my money all I have left is 3 dollars and so now it’s saying I need to buy it again

  76. Blood*Specter

    Might want to wait until 5:30 or 6:00. Cant hit all USA regions at once. Sometimes the image shows, but content is not all loaded yet. Give some more time. It’s almost here……..have a drink, do some of your homework, or go play with the old lady.
    Just chill. No use getting angry, it wont help.

  77. GTP_Willis

    Yeah, I’m having the same issue. Bought the whole pack, got the theme and NSX but nothing else. Checked my transaction history, download list, tried the in game DLC button. Nothin…damn you PD

  78. LR-MR-Cole

    I dont see it in the store how do you get to it i just go to view by title and go to gt5 but i see nothing. who has seen it?

    1. MKLINGS1994

      found the complete pack, paid for it, but only got the NSX Stealth from it, not showing any DLC on GT5 :(

  79. Supertom14

    i found the complete pack on the PSN and i bought it, i got the NSX and a theme, now there is a blue Play Station bag right beside the picture what does that mean?

  80. masaki7026

    You have to search “Gran Turismo 5” and scroll down until you find it.

    But I already bought it, and it won’t show in the game! I still have the GT Academy theme and the NSX, but not the DLC…What now?

  81. PiranhaZ06

    you guys do realize that 14:00 PST is not 17:00 EDT (eastern daylight time)… We are currently still in Eastern Daylight Time which is to say… 14:00 Pacific Standard Time = 17:00 Eastern Standard Time = 18:00 Eastern Daylight Time… 41 more minutes

    1. jtwraj

      Took my money twice and no DLC. Did get my NSX but that is all!!! Great job Sony and PD!!! Waited a week for this?

  82. MKLINGS1994

    great, still us Americans can’t take advantage of that great DLC pack, very unfair that all you europeans have been playing with all the new stuff for a week, we STILL, even on the release date, have to wait longer and longer………… -_-

    GT-R (I MEANT) Stealth is a beast. I love it. Mine is tuned very well for the SPA track especially with the kink turn. Petal to the Metal. I dont even lift or brake. I bet you guys do. suckaaaaaa. lol

      Even if someone where to say, “yes, exactly 5:00pm EST,” would you believe them? Why would you? The announcement said that is when it will be released. It might come several minutes early or late. Who knows.

  89. It's me

    Ooooooh pizza I think I’m gonna order that for dinner if the dlc is delayed again if not and it goes up for grabs…..screw dinner!

  90. It's me

    I’m just sitting in front of a clock and my tv at the playstation store and it just doesn’t get any better than this

  91. GRAFX21

    I hope after this update, the next update would be to have all used cars/standard cars, except nascar, lmp’s or touring cars already made to be able to put RIMS on every standard car. That would add so much more detail to the game and users. Lets show some creativity..and Better body kits and wings. Some of those wings look like dog poop.

  92. GRAFX21

    yeah, I have a feeling it wont be 2pm…but I am hoping it will be though. iT WILL PROBABLY BE AROUND 2:30 just to make us wait that much longer…this is like watching paint dry. hahaha

  93. IzzyDoom

    I can’t wait for it to.become available finally got the money for it. Now I wait……………………..and wait…………….(repeat untill its downloaded)

  94. 84GTB

    At least all of you guys are lucky to wait real soon. Gotta wait for my PSN gift card I won at the giveaway here some time this week, then I can get the DLC…

  95. ZDUPH

    45 minutes to go! Sorry I’m extremely bored. Just watching B-Spec run laps around Monza in the DC Championship.

    1. slashfan7964

      Same, I wanted it to update around 1PM EST so when I got home at 4 it would be ready to buy, guess I have to wait another hour.

  96. madmarc2001

    pd and ps and crazy they should have sneeked the dlc codes out at 3 am this morning …… there just asking for trouble at 5pm est everyone is going to log on at the same time …. tech issues ? maybe maybe not but still crazy . hopefuly next dlc december? they wont make such a big deal out of it … kaz said he wanted all the fim gt cars in the game . wonder if he will save those for gt 6?

    1. madmarc2001

      NEXT TIME PS RELEASE 5am not 5PM sure PD could see you problems coming .
      blind man could see PS store crash at 5 pm est … duh

  97. It's me

    Ahhhh I want it now!! I was just disappointed to find out I can’t get it when I get out of school and to find out I had to wait 2 more hours…just no…… Instead of giving us a free car they should make the add ons cheaper

  98. volracer

    Face it, if anything fro Gran Turismo happened on schedule, the universe would come to a screeching halt in amazement. Is it not ironic that a game series based on people trying to win by shaving a fraction of a second here or there has to force its customers to practice so much patience.

  99. GRAFX21

    TICK TICK TICK….damn, I am inpatiently waiting and I already have BF3! Got it last night at midnight like they said it wuld be released! At least there good at that. PD, sucks at giving info. There always late on the follow ups.

  100. GRAFX21

    Your right the world is nt wrecked. The problem is USA does not have a clue why it was delayed is my point and why it takes a while. Why can it not just drop n the 25th? When there was a delay for 1week to purchase while half of the globe already got there content. What are you still talking for, must I keep elaborating my point? Obviously you just found money to purchase it Thursday and not Tues. Good for you. USA didnt!!!! Thats why im ranting! And we still dont while I type this!!!!

    1. tika

      I agrea its strange that you guys had to wait this long on the DLC and I dont no why it is to.
      Mabay it has something to do that youre continent is so big and over populated that the where afraid of losing control our overload there severs.! I dont no

    2. HPUnleashed

      I hate it when something goes wrong and there’s no explanation for why it happened too. I’ve tried to find out what happened, but Sony seems to refuse to give us an explanation, which the conspiracy side of my brain going.

    3. tika

      I heard from friends that tryd to download the content in the first hours in europ was a mes as wel and the sever where overloaded for hours.

  101. tika

    I just dont understand the fuz over some DLC and the delay
    The DLC came out here on Tuesday and I didendt have the time until Thursday to purchase it.
    and the world is not wrecked by it and I was stil able to play the game as I used to.
    in the mean whille I was able to try out the trachk online

  102. GRAFX21

    I have been Online on SPA already. Ive been racing there since the first night the world but USA recieved it. Trust me I dont live under a rock. I work alot. So I am tempted to play. People who do not have my schedule wouldnt under stand. lol.

    I alreay mastered SPA…However I would like to host my own room using SPA. I already mastered my GT-R Stealth Model and am eager to play with friends. Add me if you want. Thats my PSN screen name.

    1. tika

      oke I wil do that then, dont get al mestup about my psn name its dutch and i have A dutch acount as well for i,am dutch from brith and we live in Finland ..

      if there is anybody else outhere ho wants to drive Adlc car but dont have them yet here is my psn name.
      the cars are online to use.

      PSN NAME IS laatmaargaan

  103. MKLINGS1994

    5………….very funny PD, so because this is Gran Turismo 5, the DLC has to be unveiled at ” 5 “, strange tactics PD, very strange indeed

  104. HPUnleashed

    Geez, everyone just needs to take a chill pill! We know it’s coming at 5pm EST, so telling them to “Hurry up!”, isn’t going to change anything. Just find something else to do until 5!

    1. tika

      @ GRAFX21
      I understand that, but if you want to drive on SPA go online and try the track.
      i will keep you going for a whille and if you have friends online in Europe our elsewear the wil borrow you A car as well.
      i did the same with my DLC cars and the are being driveing by friends like the stool them.

  105. GRAFX21

    exactly…u posting in ranting just as much, your just trying to sound cool about it. Content is taking way to long. They already had a week. I want it now! Especially if im paying! Not them. It aint free. So stfu.

    1. Chad D.

      They had to pay the workers to make them you know, lol, so your not entirely correct there, but yeah, I can’t wait for it.

  106. tika

    Come on boys don’t start crying over when the DLC comes to you if not today, then tomorrow..
    Welcome to the real world cry baby’s and screamers, where things sometime go wrong our don’t go the way you want

    1. ykiki

      Welcome to the real world tika where you don’t have to scold everyone who doesn’t behave in the manner in which you think they should…. Ha! I just did it too! ;)

    2. tika

      @ ykiki

      Come one you very well this message is to those ho are screaming for there download content.
      and almost go nuts over it.
      And I didn’t mean to scold, but I our we over here in Finland like to call people how act like litle childeren cry baby`s our screamers.
      I did not know that you in the U.S. have such delicate souls

    3. tika

      Spoild maby, arogant no
      Well-educated and fit with a mind that is able to think relative, yes

    4. SZRT Ice

      If only you typed as intelligently as you believe you speak. Let people speak. It’s what “Comment Boxes” are made for. Or request Jordan/GTPlanet moderate comments or to remove comment boxes altogether. The only people you should be telling what to do are your kids, emloyees, students, staff, or citizens. But if you aren’t a parent, boss, teacher, pricipal, CEO, CO, or President…, then shutting tfu might be in your best interest.

  107. Nautical

    On the home screen there is a button on the far left, its for DLC. When the DLC is ready you will be able to download it from there, its linked to the PSN Store.

  108. GRAFX21

    I have BF3 and I am still waiting to D/L this stuff…mann they really do squeeze every drop of the lemon. My goodness!

  109. bigfoot217

    Can someone clear something up for me?

    I have an EU version of GT5 but am playing on a US PSN account (I also have EU and JP accounts)

    If I purchase the DLC on the US PSN will it work with my EU game?


  110. GRAFX21

    The least thing they could of done was given a time. I got up early this morning before work just to D/L the content but couldnt fined it. I was going to come at lunch too and right after work. Just give me a time zone when it is releasing..I already have my CC ready!!!! Hurry PD. This is annoying because of the 1 week extra wait already! Why cant they just release it at midnight Eastern time. So I can dictate when it will come out in California. sheeesh!

  111. yugondie

    both which is why you guys need new hobbies to kill some time. geez wait like everyone else here and its about 20mins till 2 est

  112. pyru

    Today when!???? Yesterday I stay up till 1am, now I came from lunch break to check and there’s nothing still…. The DLC should be more accurate and if the say oct 25 it should be out at exactly the first hour of the day I mean 12am.

    1. Badhornet

      “The DLC should do this…. They should do that….”
      Come on, you sound like your life depend on it !!!
      Live the real life first, the rest can wait until you come home tonight………

    1. Watain

      yes it is the truth!! :)
      its sony america’s for the delay for dlc
      so not only do we get the wonderful DLC packs, but the steal car aswell
      aint it great?

    1. tika

      I work and studie, but i work at my dad firm and only 20 hours so there is room for studie, and free time.
      free time to ride rally’s and banger races and in the winter ride my snowmobile as well.
      And then just for the fun play GT5 specially in the winter time, I live in Finland and we have long and dark winters over here.
      In the hard of winter we only have 4 hours daylight and it is very, very cold then over here around -30a-35 degree Celsius so you want to stay in home and amuse you’re self..

    2. pasigiri

      -35C (~ -20F)!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOW THAT’S COLD. I’ve only been in that kind of weather a few times. Yeah, staying indoors and enjoying GT5 (other stuff too) by the fire, heater, and anything else to keep warm is the ONLY thing to do.

    3. tika


      well there are enough things to beside playing on the PS3 to stay warm.
      spending time with family & friends, going to the sauna. our read A book.
      but the ps3 makes long hours in the winter..

      question : are like me A girl and if so are we the only girls our woman out here…in this male dominated world ?

  113. granddriver

    My patience is wearing thin, I know we are closer than ever but come on already!! To make matters worse my car is having brake issues so I have no way to get to the store to get my paid copy of BF3. Patinece Granddriver, patience!!

  114. 7945GT57945

    its 9AM now here the 25th and no DLC well its good i was going to get a PSN card over the weekend anyway lol BUT YOU NEED TO KNOW THIS:

    2. DLC CAN NOT BE SENT (not even suits/paints)
    3. DLC paints is a 1 time use and can NOT be got back like some races give you paint but you can NOT win these after buying them.
    4. DLC has to have the same USA PS3/User/Game DATA or it cant be downloaded

    this all sucks for fam’s if there kid wants to use there DLC he cant because its locked to the user…
    PD great job AGIAN

  115. SZRT Ice

    Ok, questions:

    1. Are there more than one copy of each paint chip? Or is it a one time use for each color?

    2. Can Street Cars hit the “Kart Space I” & “II” for drift sessions?

    3. Are the DLC Cars paintable? Or do we all have to run around in uniformed painted cars again? (Chrome lined)

    4. Are the rims changeable?

    Thanks to whoever takes the time…

    1. GregTheStig

      From what I understand,

      1: You only get 1 paint chip each unless you buy it multiple times

      2: Not sure, haven’t tried it and haven’t really been able to (US)

      3: From what I’ve seen, you can definitely paint them whatever you want

      4: Not sure because I don’t have them yet (US), but I would assume they are.

    2. tika


      1. It’s a one time use for each color, you only get one paint chip of each color.

      2 NO you can not take street car our race car to the kart track.

      3 Yes DLC cars are paint able, so do want you want with the car.

      4 Yes they are

    3. RACECAR

      1. Each chip are 1 time use

      2. No street cars allowed on those tracks (doesn’t seem dimentionally possible anyway)

      3. DLC cars are definately paintable, though the burnt titanium decals on the R35 GT-R TC Stay after color change

      4. From what has been shown so fa (at least that I’ve seen), They can only be painted, not changed.


      1: Only 1 paint chip of each paint, Unless you buy the DLC Paint Pack multiple times.

      2: Only Karts are allowed on the Kart Space tracks.

      3: Yes you can paint the DLC car’s as well as number change (Expect R35 TC).

      4: Rim’s are paintable & can be changed

    5. SZRT Ice


      Also, If I buy the DLC, paint a car, suit up a B-Spec Bob, then re-download the DLC, do I keep the painted cars & suits already used? Like Paint> Back Up GT5> uninstall> re-install, re-D/L DLC?

    1. Watain

      5pm? im pretty sure that i can wait until then
      thank god im on reading week
      study had home, order pizza, let Bob grind away until its released
      i like

  116. madmarc2001

    iiiiiiiii waaaaant myyyy ………. i wantttt myyyyy DDDDDLLLL cccccccccccccc !!!!! ( Loud drums and guitar e chord)

  117. Blood*Specter

    I hear some of the cars will not allow you to adjust the LSD. What’s up with that PD???????

    Also, after the PSN blackout some months ago, (due to possiable cyber theft) my password will not work.
    When I attempted to change it to update my credit card information for use the PSN was down for maintenance.
    So I will not be able to get the DLC. At least for now.

    But after the LSD crap, not sure I want the “Car Pack” anyway. I mean come on, cars with no LSD adjustment….please.
    Hopefully it’s not every car in the download. I think I would like SPA and the cart track looks like it would be fun.

    Finally, when will GT1, GT2 and GT3 type Race Mods and color schemes find their way to GT5?
    You should be able to Race Mod whatever car you want provided the car actually runs in a legit racing event.

    1. tika

      I believe there is not one car in the DLC that you can put A lsd on, that indeed is A shame
      So far I can see but I dont no if thats right for A have some DLC car online to share with friends and I cant lok in to them right now.
      But so far as I can see there is no LSD possible on DLC cars.

    2. gt5fanatec

      YES! FINALLY someone is looking for the same thing I do. Sometimes I want to modify a normal car and make it a raceing machine and put raceing schemes on it.

  118. Tommy_861

    Anyone freaking out… its friggin 9 am EST…. When does anything ever release on PSN before the late afternoon or evening? Ive never ever seen it. Wait for tonight. Its not delayed.

    1. HPUnleashed

      It’s not delayed, it just takes Sony a long time to get their store updated. Last week it took them until 11:00pm EST to finally update the store. So expect to wait a while. Unfortunately…

  119. HPUnleashed

    I’m still sitting on the fence about this DLC. It looks really good, but if they end up coming out with a “Classics Track Pack”, I’d much rather spend my money on that.

    1. SpeedinIan

      Amen to that, I’ve been missing Grindelwald ever since GT2 and always wondered what those uneven roads would be like with force feedback wheels. Sure to be a wrist breaker!

    2. SpeedinIan

      And where is Sears Point? I’d it’s a long shot but I’d love to drive Austin’s Circuit of the Americas!

  120. tika

    Since A week we have our DLC over here And I, am overall happy with it.
    But there are some downsides on it to, especially with the paint DLC, you get 100 different colors in 10 different paint scheme`s.
    The problem is you gan not schoose wcich color scheme you want to buy, so you get paint colors you dont want.
    I bought 2 extra sets of paint for the reason that you only get 1 paint chip of each color.
    And I had to throw the half away for that were collors i will never use.
    The need to fix that. i want to be able to choose wcich color scheme i want and dont want.

  121. Projectoutlaw

    Ugh, I go into work at 1pm on Tuesdays so I have all morning to game. I was more than dissapointed last week when it got delayed but once again I still can’t play it because it has to release in the afternoon. That’s so stupid. /shakesfist

    1. another_jakhole

      It’s been available everywhere else in the world, besides North America. The cars can’t be gifted.

      If you haven’t checked the PS Store for the DLC, it might be there. If not, it WILL be there.

    2. tika

      No you can not give cars our helmets and suits even as paint away to A friend.
      That, that is not possible for Cars and suits was to expected there, PD wants to sell those items.
      that it is not possible for paint is A strange think for it is only A paint chip.

    3. rottenatomy

      I’m from Brazil. someone said that it will not be available in the brazilian store due to car licensing. now, does it make any sense?

    1. another_jakhole

      The CHASER’S!!! That’s where I heard the “unAustralian” term. Good stuff, that Australian show. I saw the first 2 seasons.

  122. PIGBOY

    the wait part 2…hears jaws music…..another delay………..har har…hope i can pay via a playstation card,cant register me aussie credit card on US account…need to practice spa for fgt racin series on the weekend….i think the seasonal/special events are new content every week !!

    1. groundedGT

      Calling people idiot just cause they try to get DLC when their is no official time release given. Don t know who is the bigger idiot.

    2. another_jakhole

      Pretty much. There’s no reason to be acting like that, person with letters, underscores, and numbers. I just have the underscores and letters.

    3. RACECAR

      Calling him an idiot was not at all called for. There are ways of correcting people with being a outright asshat and insulting them.

      Wow, you live in Hawaii?

      Have you explored the island, seen the LOST sets? Beautifull place man hawaii, i hope one day i’ll be able to afford a boat / yacht and go there, without all the tourists and stuff, and enjoy the beautiful beaches, woods, mountains and all.

    Wish I had known this earlier. I wouldn’t have waited around for midnight like a loon. Gonna be a long day tomorrow.

    2AM CST right? I think that’s when it’s supposed to hit the playstation store but I’m not sure, anyone know the facts?

    I figured since it’s not a global release like Spec 2 was, then it would center more around the middle of the day, since it’s a more specific region.

    BOOO!!! I am waiting till a minute ago and it’s not yet in the PS Store!!! Hahahaha I’m in Canada. I guess i’ll download it tomorrow when I come at home from school :D

      Its even cheaper for PSN Plus members for the first two weeks after release. Since its 12 bucks for it in bulk, I bet it would be 9.99 for Plus members.

      No, our Gov’t is trillions in debt. I’m doing just fine! If they go down in flames we’ll all be Chinese anyway. Then we can export all of our goods to ourselves! $$$!

      The US GDP is second only to the EU and our corporations are making record profits. The thing is that we have a system that prevents ordinary people from reaping the benefit from their productivity.

      At least PD allows people to race on Spa without buying the DLC. Been racing it daily on EU lobbies since last week.

      I have had the same problem, I got the NSX and nothing else. I called PSN and apparently there are some “issues” hopefully our DLC will show up soon.
