    I am trying to share my idea to gran truismo for the next update about having a better and more realistic sound and gear changes to the Lamborghini aventador and also have more cars such as the BMW m5 f10 the Ferrari FF the Ferrari f12 berlinetta and the new dodge viper but I am unable to do so because contacting gran truismo has been really difficult so please I would be grateful if someone did on my behalf :)

  2. Apr. 2, 7:22am

    Don’t like this one. :(
    I don’t care for drifting (to each their own, ‘ey) but the tires are way to slippery imo.
    Next time (hopefully) better.

  3. Mar. 28, 11:46pm

    1 new seasonal B-Spec event is available today, and the OCD has been updated. Unfortunately, the new OCD update is sloppy like the last one. I swear, I must of saw every standard BMW in the game right there.

  4. Mar. 28, 11:04pm

    There’s a new bspec and the online dealership has been refreshed.

  5. Mar. 28, 7:29pm

    What going on here? Everyday I check here and no news about DLC…….maybe I think some message are right wait for April because we got DLC early in Jan….maybe? I am hoping to scan Bathurst hehehe.

  6. Mar. 28, 5:14pm


    • Mar. 28, 5:25pm

      6 spots left! HURRY ENTRIES CLOSE 1 HOUR PRIOR RACE! THIS SUNDAY OR SATURDAY (for Americans/Canadians)

  7. Mar. 28, 3:27pm

    Why an I seeing people compre Forza 4 and GT5? You have to remember that Forza 4 came out in October 2011 and GT5 came out in early 2010. GT5 is still running off older technology and are trying to update it AND working on GT6. They are obviously cery busy. Also, Porsche just got free of thier contact with EA so they are possibly trying to scan some of their models like Turn10 studios is doing with Forza. Remember I said POSSIBLY so don’t get your hopes up. Gran Turismo has never had any Porsche models throughout their history, only RUF. So we may not see any in GT5 but you never know. Also, Kazunori Yamauchi, head of Gran Turismo said that DLC would be released approximately every 2 months. The first DLC was in October, second in December, following the 2 month schedule. The third DLC was released in January, ahead of schedule. So if there is no DLC this moth, we would be back on the original schedule, so I’m not surprised that there has been no DLC this month. It would be nice if we were more informed.

    • Mar. 28, 6:26pm

      GT5 didn’t come out early 2010… it came out in November of 2010… Forza 4 came out 11 months after GT5, so that isn’t a big difference from where you come from. It matters when the game’s development started; GT5 was started around 2005, and Forza 4 was started around 2008-2009… so yes, you could say new technology, but that doesn’t really matter… GT5 used a new engine or “technology”, and thats what took so long, plus PD’s much smaller (140ish people) development team. Forza 4 was using the same engine as its predecessors, and was therefore much easier to develop with familiar technology… not to mention Turn 10 has about 400 workers… Otherwise, most of what you said was correct…

    • Mar. 28, 6:58pm

      thank you for correcting those. I was accidentally referring to the propsed release date in March 2010 but Kaz said that was too early and the game wouldn’t of been completed in time in an interview with Auto Express in April 2010. Im just saying that people shouldn’t be comparing the 2 games because (and you mentioned this as well), that Turn10 studios has about 400 workers compared to PD’s 140ish. So Turn10 obviously had it easier to work on their game.

  8. Mar. 28, 2:22pm

    May be PD is too busy making Bathurst as a track DLC lol. who knows…

    • Mar. 28, 3:02pm

      No. GT6 has already been scanned fot GT6.

    • Mar. 28, 3:03pm

      I meant Bathurst has been scanned for GT6

  9. Mar. 28, 12:48pm

    I’m guessing the next Seasonals are gonna have something to do with Alfa Romeos… Just judging on whats currently in the OCD.

  10. Mar. 28, 7:39am

    Well I guess nothing won’t be said till April I suppose. :\ Uuuugh…. That’s on Sunday… l:\

    • Mar. 28, 9:08am

      I that a so bad thing? What if there is a HUGE DLC and update coming? ;) lol, just don’t build a lot of hype and everything will go nicely.

    • Mar. 28, 9:26am

      Okay. :) I just wished Kaz could reply back. XD It feels to quiet. I’ll try not to get to hyped.

    • Mar. 28, 10:06am

      I think they’ve learned a lesson. They don’t want to build up any hype because you know what happened with GT5s launch. HUGE hype, and huge disappointment for many people. So they keep everything quiet and calm until everythying is 100% sure.

    • Mar. 28, 10:17am

      Oh yeah. 0.0 At least they learned that lesson, maybe they’re quiet to show GT6 serectly at E3 this year *v*. They must learn more lessons. :) Thank you Uppmas. I feel a lot better.

    • Mar. 28, 1:39pm

      Always nice to help people :)

  11. Mar. 28, 4:26am

    ops +post sorry

  12. Mar. 28, 4:26am

    how hard can it be to update the A-spec

  13. Mar. 28, 4:25am

    how hard can it be to update the A-spec ?

  14. Mar. 27, 6:17pm

    Need a dispenser here.

    • Mar. 27, 10:22pm

      pootis penser here

      lol, wasn’t expecting a comment like that

  15. Mar. 27, 4:14pm

    I really find it astonishing that some people post comments bout how they can’t wait no longer for dlc WTF i played this game nearly every night since it came out and love the game as much as the next person but come on fellaz let them do there job sure they said march for the update but last time i checked there was still 4 days left. If April arrives with no update then its time to kick ass

  16. Mar. 27, 3:18pm

    Too much radiation. We have to go around.

  17. Mar. 27, 9:11am

    Yes, this is definitely taking too long for word on up coming news of any sort whether its for DLC or even something else. I’m done waiting! I’ll be moving on to something else for now. Seems like the only thing to look forward to would be GT6. Even if something relevant happens I will probably hear about it somewhere else. I’m just really bored of checking here everyday, for nothing !!!

  18. Mar. 27, 12:31am

    Cant wait anymore wake up PD!!!!!

    • Mar. 27, 7:35am

      If you wait patiently, you will eventually end up with something great.

    • Mar. 27, 7:54am

      Yeah, we sure wait a little long but it’s soooo painful. X( I remember before Kaz saying him and his team ran out of time, so this time they better use this time good. A little information would be nice though, they’re to quiet.

    • Mar. 27, 9:20am

      It’s a surprise I suppose ;)

    • Mar. 27, 3:18pm

      Patience laddie.

    • Mar. 27, 3:58pm

      Okay. Must be patient. Must be patient. Must be patient. “Takes deep breath to let out the pressure”

    • Mar. 28, 12:39am

      Like Toko said…. Just keep us informed. Alot of the negativity is based on lack of knowledge. If it’s going to be late tell us, if not tell us as well. It doesn’t take more than 5 min just to post an update once a week on the official site.

    • Mar. 28, 8:05am


  19. Mar. 26, 11:08pm

    its not just about cars DLC its about TRACKS and the game SHORT VERY SHORT >>A-SPEC<< MODE IS A JOKE

  20. Mar. 26, 8:01pm

    This really doesn’t pass as news nowadays.

  21. Mar. 26, 3:11pm

    why DLC is so important? u cant choose from 1000 car? u need +5?

    • Mar. 26, 3:42pm

      Yes, actually; theres many cars that people want but don’t have in GT5; Cadillacs, Bentleys, V8 Super cars, etc. They aren’t in the game, (Well, ONE Cadillac concept, and ONE Bentley race car) and there’s many MANY more cars missing. Porsche is an odd ball with EA’s licensing, but Audi’s R15 and R18 are major LMP cars that Forza now has, and PD has a good relation ship with Audi. Nissan and Toyota are entering Lemans this year, and there’s all sorts of Nissans being used by the GT Academy that aren’t in GT5. I’d like to see some Standard to Premium upgrades as well… PD just did that to the Jaguar XJR-9 Race Car. Plus, tracks; Bathurst, Silverstone, Classic GT tracks; don’t you want those?

    • Mar. 26, 4:13pm

      I’m starting to get tired of Nissans and Hondas.

    • Mar. 26, 4:18pm


      That’s right TRACKS TRACKS TRACKS

      and classic cars

    • Mar. 26, 5:03pm

      ^ I want more TRACKS TRACKS TRACKS, and need it NOW!

    • Mar. 26, 9:15pm

      I really only want Standard to Premiums….about 200 worth. Make it about 500 premiums, I’d be completely grateful and content with that until GT6

  22. Mar. 26, 11:52am

    Well, I went to Ireland, followed GTPlanet on my iPhone, an what do you know? I came back and didn’t miss any DLC!

    I’m a little disappointed that the DLC STILL hasn’t been announced, and no release date has been confirmed…

  23. Mar. 26, 11:23am

    imagine what gt5 is going to take for dlc when forza4 realises the porsche dlc……..

  24. Mar. 26, 10:06am


    • Mar. 26, 10:39am

      DLC is for April

    • Mar. 26, 10:59am

      ^ That means that’s a good thing right? Sweet. :D Why didn’t Kaz just say that, it’s okay. Maybe the GT classic tracks are planned to come on April along with some new cars. :) *Fingers crossed for GT4 track pack with A-spec expansion or old seasonal events returnal*. ;)

    • Mar. 26, 4:27pm

      The misterious Kaz
      3 months of silence must be a good thing

    • Mar. 26, 5:07pm

      Why can’t Kaz be more talkative like the other developers. It’s not fun when him and his team are so quite… Like unleash a big about GT6, updates and DLC about GT5, SAY SOMETHING!!! Dx Does he even come to this site?

    • Mar. 26, 5:35pm

      Hey Toko, you have spelled ‘quite’ instead of quiet.

    • Mar. 26, 5:51pm

      ^ Whoops. Thanks for telling me Dr.Frogg. I get “quite” over quiet at times. ^^’

  25. Mar. 26, 1:19am


    • Mar. 26, 1:23am

      Just heard from Ring bandits that there are only 9 spots left! It’s gonna be awesome, 2 weeks to go!

    • Mar. 27, 3:27am

      Not many spots left, 1 week to go! Please join! It will be better with a lot more people! :D

    • Mar. 27, 6:46am

      Please read this and suggest it to all gt5 friends to race!

  26. Mar. 25, 2:04pm

    DLC every 2 months
    DLC this month ? I don’t think so

    First DLC was december
    add 2 months that’s februari, ( but we got it early in januari)
    add 2 months…. April

    an update this month, i hope so

    also in 2 weeks the Geneva car show opens it’s doors, perfect time for new DLC imo.

    • Mar. 26, 11:49am

      Actually, the first DLC was in October, then the next was in December, then the third was released in January… A bit early. So, add two months to January, and you get March. The DLC was delayed, and I’m not sure if it’ll come out late March or early April. If it comes out in March, it will still be ahead of the “Every two month” release schedule, and if its released in April, it will be Net-2 months; right with the schedule. I don’t really mind, as long as the content is good, and isn’t delayed again.

    • Mar. 26, 4:11pm

      of course the first was in october, my mistake

      I just wanted to point out that imo PD is still on schedule
      They released the februari DLC early, maybe that was a bad move
      but if you use the 2 months pattern logic they are not late

      also it’s the NY car salon LOL not Geneva

  27. Mar. 25, 8:23am

    NO DLC!

  28. Mar. 24, 1:20pm

    I know it because I know we are going to have one sooner or later.and I m not looking for attention believe me. Some others might look for it

    • Mar. 24, 2:34pm

      Ohh. Okay, I believe you and sorry. You think it’ll come out next week hopefully?

  29. Mar. 24, 9:39am

    new dlc coming…..

    • Mar. 24, 10:16am

      How do you know?

    • Mar. 24, 12:37pm

      Don’t believe him. He’s only looking for attention and trick others. “Sigh” Also Kaz hasn’t said anything yet after March 19th ’12… -_-

  30. Mar. 24, 6:41am

    please! put a clutch in the game for a controller! this is a ”driving simulator” so you have got to put a clutch in the game!

    • Mar. 25, 3:07pm

      ^ I use a G25 but you have a very valid request here.

  31. Mar. 24, 5:17am

    I’ve never seen purple look so sexy.

  32. Mar. 24, 4:38am


    • Mar. 25, 11:09am

      Anch’io!! // Me too!!

  33. Mar. 23, 11:33pm

    i hop they bring the old A-spec mode back

  34. Mar. 23, 10:52pm

    I just hope they will bring the old tracks back…

  35. Mar. 23, 10:05pm

    Have you guys seen the Adventador J? That car needs to be in GT5.

    • Mar. 23, 10:44pm

      Its similar to the Gallardo Spyder concept a few years back… unfortunately we never saw that in GT5 :(

    • Mar. 23, 11:46pm

      It might be a DLC in GT6 or 7

    • Mar. 24, 10:05am

      I almost certain the Aventador was in GT4

    • Mar. 24, 7:48pm


      How dumb can u get? It wasn’t because the Aventador didnt exist back then.

    • Mar. 24, 9:01pm

      This the complaining center? Mmmm ok more rims more standard to premium cars like the spoon civic spoon integra supra mk4 mitsu gto premium japanese classics like the skyline more muscles please!! O oyea more rims and if possible more rims! Maybe more rims and if possible the yokohama 3 spoke rims from gt2!!! O yea more rims please! And can you make the initial d cars premium (all of them) and can we get a mountain pass please that would show what weight does to a car doing a downhill o yea and more rims rims make a car your car

    • Mar. 24, 11:13pm


      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!…you were born in 1996 weren’t you?

    • Mar. 25, 9:30pm

      Yes I was, and thats before GT4 and the Lamborghini Aventador so I should know. It also makes me more intelligent than you. Now I`ll leave you to write your irrelevant comeback but I wont be reading it because you aren`t worth my time. Thank You.

      SZRT Ice


    • Mar. 26, 10:40am

      But aren’t you just dying to know what I’m say in response to your 16 yr old rant?…..commooonn….you know you’re gonna read it,….and what are you think while reading this?…are you thinking, “why am I reading this?”….haha.

      But in all seriousness kid, I’m not retarded, tho I do admit to be trolling a little there with my sarcastic comment.

      @SZRT – guess you didn’t catch my sarcasm either…MAYBE NEXT TIME.

    • Mar. 26, 2:44pm

      You people have a TERRIBLE sense of humor. He was obviously joking. The Aventador came out less than a year ago, so obviously it wasn’t in GT4 lol

    • Mar. 27, 8:01am

      ^ I agree with HKSBro92. I too knew MyFavoriteGame was joking around. I dislike “THOSE” who think they’re higher then others when others were just joking around.

  36. Mar. 23, 9:20pm

    Just one more thing as anyone noticed on SSR5 when you come around the hairpin and down the hill, just as youre coming over the crest the car has vanished for a second with only the headlights showing?

    Its cool… in a back to the future kind of way!

    • Mar. 23, 9:33pm

      WOW! I guess I’m not the only who saw the car vanished after all.

    • Mar. 23, 9:39pm

      Nope at first I thought it might just be the aventador, but tried it with a whole range of cars both standard and premium and it happens with them all

      I also just did a free run on there to see if it was just the seasonal, but its not it seems to do it always…

      Maybe an update that would fix that could happen really soon, eh? ;)

    • Mar. 23, 9:47pm

      Indeed. :)

    • Mar. 24, 1:34am

      Yeah happened to my Mercielago SV….all I saw were the lights for a break moment.

    • Mar. 24, 4:12am
      mister dog

      I saw it too, apparently there was fog reported in the area at the moment (or mister dog smoking a doobie in his 458 italia could have been the reason also).

    • Mar. 24, 5:29am

      Yeah it happened to me too…i smiled and at the same time my eyes were like O_O…oh our beloved buggy Gran Turismo…we still love you…but still no DLC NEWS!!!

    • Mar. 24, 10:07am

      i thought I had accidentally pressed the stealth button my Lambo, but after further inspection I realized that that stealth feature was not tampered with

  37. Mar. 23, 9:03pm

    can u guys change back the physics of the driving in rain? its a joke even on rain tires its undriveable
    it was fun before but now its a pain in the @ss

  38. Mar. 23, 8:52pm

    If they do another seasonal with the really powerful cars on the wrong tyres I’m going to punch someone in the face…

    • Mar. 24, 1:36am

      what do you mean by “the wrong tyres”?

    • Mar. 24, 4:24am

      thats how you can test your driving skills my friend !

    • Mar. 24, 8:56pm

      650 pp with sh its not fun and my driving skills are tellint me this tires cannt handle this much power! There has to be a balance in a car between power and traction or else its not fun

    • Mar. 26, 6:46pm

      @ Enthusiastgt

      I used the GT-R TC and won it no problem but it was still 4wd driftingevery corner. It was fun though.

  39. Mar. 23, 8:16pm

    Everyday last two weeks I check here and I am tired waiting for new DLC of cars and track? What happen? Last was second week of January and now it more than two months? Are we getting very big new cars and track? I saw Audi R18 as I like that in the game and I heard 30 NEW porsche get in Forzea games in May? What going on here? I need to hear that please….More F1 like Mclaren Honda to Mclaren Mercedes, Williams Renualt, Brawn GP, Mercedes GP, Red Bull etc…..from 1970 to 2012? Yea I also love to see new BMW M5 or 7 series. Of course more Honda….1984 Honda Prelude race car……one the best japanese race car in that year.

    • Mar. 23, 8:46pm

      You do know some of Forza’s DLC cars are already in the game?

    • Mar. 24, 9:05pm

      Now you talking we need the senna f1 car

  40. Mar. 23, 6:01pm

    Another post regarding no updates etc ;)

  41. Mar. 23, 3:17pm

    One more day and no news about DLC…come on PD say something…

    • Mar. 23, 4:01pm

      They were really quite lately were they?

    • Mar. 23, 4:38pm

      Too much Toko…something big is coming.

    • Mar. 23, 4:42pm

      I agree Foxiol. I feel everyday that it’s gonna be big and exciting.

    • Mar. 23, 5:07pm

      Same here, at least I hope the waiting time will be worth it.

    • Mar. 23, 5:27pm

      Everybody seems to forgot that GT5 wasn’t ever going to have DLC? On the first thought, I mean. I guess they making money to have a big developement time for GT6. As long as GT brand is making success, Sony will let their developement going.

    • Mar. 23, 6:01pm

      ha ha ha Every day , He holds his words

    • Mar. 23, 7:17pm

      @foefke And that includes Saturdays and Sundays…lol

  42. Mar. 23, 10:16am

    This reminds me, I can use the Aventador for the Nordschleife Seasonal

    • Mar. 24, 4:32am

      Something big or maybe nothing ??
      I m really looking forward for the next DLC !! And a car that I want is the BMW E30 M3 EVO street and race car !!

  43. Mar. 23, 6:39am

    I like these seasonal events, they keep making GT5 fresh, but what I wish for is, make seasonal events more often, even with less money, just make more fun/ competitive races with more restrictions and car variables! Seasonal events saved short GT5 career mode, but still I hope GT6 will be more GT like with long and great career mode! more mature!

  44. Mar. 22, 9:28pm

    I’m looking forward to getting drifting my highend rides… Thanks PD and KaZ!!!

    • Mar. 22, 10:56pm

      I doubt they post 2012 cars in the middle of the 2012 season, because the HD graphic renderings give opossition a nice chance to zoom in and look around the aerodynamic components of your car. However, 2011 models would be more likely. Peugeot isn’t racing so last years 908 isn’t a far stretch. The 2011 Audi R18 TDI was added to Forza 4 already and is very different from the 2012 Audi R18 E-tron Quattro and the 2012 Audi R18 Ultra. A 2011 could happen and would be great. How about some Le Mans GT cars, that would be great. What better way to commemorate the 80th running of Le Mans then adding cars from the closest finish in the history of the race!

  45. Mar. 22, 7:27pm

    I dont care if the DLC comes in april or june, i just want some europeans cars like the new M5 and if god bless us porsches (i know it isnt happening). Maybe a few real world tracks would be nice too. Lets hope for the best

    • Mar. 22, 8:25pm

      What I’m thinking is maybe in the height of the 24 hours of Lemans they’ll have a DLC with cars like the R18, the Toyota Hybrid, and the Deltawing car. Hoping for anyway. And all 24 hour Lemans DLC would be pretty awesome.

    • Mar. 23, 1:57am

      They can already do that by looking at the real HD pictures of the cars. And somehow I highly doubt a computer image of the cars would give any opposition an advantage anywhere.

      @BubbleBelly542 That is a very helpful piece of advice. You should tell that to some people around my town. :D

  48. Mar. 22, 4:56pm

    PD is going to add something new to the game. Its a couple of reasons why. Im pretty sure pd is not going to keep giving us the game things. maybe just maybe this next Dlc can be it.

  49. Mar. 22, 3:34pm

    At this point there should be massive online tournaments orchestrated by Polyphony with 1000-level Car Tickets and DLC Cars as prizes. There should be an A-spec Event Creator with a wide-ranging checklist of options. The work it would take to do this would be akin to making programs for fun on my TI-85 calculator in high school. This isn’t like making another 20-million polygon Nissan. Seriously gies. You gies…

    Event Creator Choices:

    –Tracks for the series
    –Time of day including weather
    –Laps for each track
    –Standing / Rolling start
    –Your car
    –Field size (2-16 cars)
    –A.I. cars (choose individually or by class- Touring Cars, SuperGT, Kei Cars, Sports Cars, LMP, Multiclass, etc..)
    –A.I. individual tires
    –A.I. individual Difficulty (1-10 like arcade mode)
    –Tire wear, fuel depletion, Grip on wet/off track, slipstream on/weak, visible/mechanical damage

    –Points awarded for each finishing position

    –Prizes will be selected by a program that factors the total difficulty after all options are set.

    –GO RACE!

    • Mar. 22, 5:34pm

      I have the same idea!! It would be awsome to have an event creator!! :)

    • Mar. 22, 9:50pm

      The game also needs to fix the opponent selection, I am tired of upgrading my car with two new parts, and then have to race a bunch of Veyrons (sometimes 15 Veyrons). It is really annoying. :(

      Great idea by the way @researchALLwars

  50. Mar. 22, 1:51pm

    Great seasonal once again PD! On timetrials you really see how good you are behind the wheel when racing against others/friends. This kind of heals the pain that we don’t have those leaderboards which i certainly though would be from beginning of launch… but hopefuly on GT6 that’s corrected too.

  51. Mar. 22, 1:24pm

    When i saw that popup from hotmail ”You got a mail from ‘GTPlanet” i said, Oh my mother, then it was just another seasonal event.

    Well i think when i buy my Screen ill have much work to do

  52. Mar. 22, 1:02pm

    Does anyone else really want GP2/GP3 cars? I’ve been tuning my FGT to act like a GP2 and I kinda wish it was a bit smaller to match.

    • Mar. 22, 3:06pm

      hell to the yes.

      late-model dirt racer cars like you can see at Eldora Speedway in Ohio- we’d like those too.

    • Mar. 22, 11:13pm

      Hell, just give me some race cars! I don’t even care which league, just some real world league and no more street cars! Lol

    • Mar. 23, 4:35am

      I do that with my FGT too its awesome fun, been thinking about setting up a formula 3 style series on here.

  53. Mar. 22, 12:43pm

    Can gtplanet please let us know if the Update + DLC has been postponed for this month. Would appreciate it. Thank you.

      They did in the photo stream article. And if you fire up GT5 and head over to the news section for March’s update, you can read it for yourself.

    I wish they had a seasonal event for Route x. How fun will that be.

  55. Mar. 22, 11:49am

    What colour paint is the lambo ?

    • Mar. 22, 12:06pm

      It’s probably the “XJR-9 Purple”. Seems right.

    • Mar. 22, 2:17pm

      I really don’t think that’s Midnight Purple. If I’m not mistaken, Midnight Purple is like the color shifting type of paint. And it’s not Plum Crazy Metallic as I said before. I just looked at it and Plum Crazy is a bit more deeper.

      So who knows…

    • Mar. 22, 2:46pm

      MidNight purple is not a colour shift paint.

  56. Mar. 22, 11:42am

    This next GT5 update better be BIG!!! A lot of HIGH QUALITY cars like LMP and GT Le Mans cars I hope. New real world tracks or something, I don’t know. All I know is there better be some alot of great stuff, an some of it free!!!

  57. Mar. 22, 11:40am

    This reminds me, I can use the DLC Aventador in last weeks Nurburgring Seasonal! thanks for reminding PD!
    bring on A-Spec expansion! we are waiting for your March spicy gaming news too!

      Lol uppmas, we want a new DLC so we can complain, haha. I don’t care if it’s DLC, I just want something new to the game. I prefer free add ons but all you asked for DLC instead. Guess you all want to pay instead of get it free, learn negotiating world! Haha

  60. Mar. 22, 10:58am

    Hmm…more seasonal events, do you think maybe you should release more DLC? you think???

      Maddens Raiders

      How many other 1st party games on the PS3 or 360 games are supported as heavily? Answer: None. PD owes you & me nothing… their body of work is legendary. Now run along and fire up the iRacing prog. delta bravo over & out. Derp.

    • Mar. 22, 11:55am

      @Madden Raiders – Playing another game doesn’t mean we hate GT5, I play GTR2 all the time, more than GT5 sometimes. I prefer GT5, but it does get kinda blah sometimes. Also i really love Silverstone & Domington :). I also play F1 2011,

      Fortunately I have a up to date hardware on my PC

  61. Mar. 22, 10:36am

    Cool, now I have an excuse to break out my dlc Lambo.

    • Mar. 23, 6:43am

      I dont know where to put my money.. I always have 20 000 and I delete and buy same cars. For me problem is to get rid of the money.. PD should make less prize money, I completed every seasonal event since No.1 and I dont know what to buy anymore, I have everything I want.. still I will play new seasonals…

  63. Mar. 22, 9:32am

    It was first in PGR2 when you can go to a showroom in first person. Too bad they don’t make games like this anymore.

  64. Mar. 22, 8:50am

    My first suggestion was to integrate an virtual garage where i can walk through and see all my cars like they made it in PGR 3 this was soo fu** awesome to look at your cars and have this attractive ambience with the villa..ahh dreams… And how to manage 1000 cars – 1. make everything to premium and don´t call it premium just CAR !! Then have a SHEIK garage or two three hahha with different environment and put all ure cars on position u like to. Who wants to dream with me :D

    • Mar. 22, 9:31am

    • Mar. 22, 11:13am

      Yeah, this was very nice feature.. And graphics were also very nice for that time! GT has the physics but not the package like Forza.. unfortunately true ://

    • Mar. 22, 11:51am

      Yeah, theres alot more GT5 could’ve done visually…I always wanted a replay editor( something where we can control the cameras , music, etc), don’t think any game has done that yet….or to be able to merge replays like a montage.

      I think if GT5 got released when it was supposed to, around 2006/2007, then it would’ve been a lot more relevant and GT6 would already be here and be a much more complete game.

    • Mar. 22, 1:43pm
      SZRT Ice

      TDU2 has full on houses with garages that hold 3 – 9 cars. Physics suck until you go into the settings however, and if you don’t know this you’re screwed and probably won’t enjoy it. Cross island driving is epic. On & off road.

  65. Mar. 22, 8:41am

    This event gave me a good reason to tune up the California and earn some gold.

  66. Mar. 22, 8:37am

    The Photo looks awesome and the color, but bored of this always the same tracks… I want new tracks and cars, new BMW new AUDI new AMG the luxury class cars Bugatti SuperSport Premium – Excellent, there is so much to fix and do for GT5.. i have so many creative ideas for the PD Team they could make the most perfect game ever GT6 could break records – hmm guys how about a survey about what u would like to have in GT6 and than we collect and vote and send our wishes to PD ? :D

    • Mar. 22, 8:55am

      Bring A-spec race restrictions to the open lobby please

      At least an option for road cars or race cars…

      If the seasonals can filter your car choice, why not the open lobby?

  67. Mar. 22, 7:36am

    • Mar. 22, 9:29am

      GT5 is sooo boring I hardly ever play anymore. What a waste.

    • Mar. 22, 9:38am

      2 haters… lol.

    • Mar. 22, 10:41am

      The game is sooo boring yet you find time to get on gtp and waste time. Way to go, get a life. I “hate” forza but I don’t make time to go on any forza forums and say how much I hate it. Let’s be logical here…

      There are other titles you can play, ya know. It’s not a law that you have to play GT5.

    That Lambo looks amazing.

  73. Mar. 22, 3:54am

    NEED…….. DLC……. NEWS………… NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Seasonals should be fun. But these delays need to stop. If they’re not going to meet the deadline, then they just shouldn’t announce it in the first place. And I sure hope they don’t move the May DLC back to June just because we had to wait a little longer for this one, and not making us wait foor 2 months for the next.

    • Mar. 22, 9:21am

      Last DLC was in february. So april would be logical.

    • Mar. 22, 10:10am

      I remember purchasing th last dlc in january

    • Mar. 22, 10:38am

      Gotta check it then. Or actually, there came a DLC in both January and December, so maybe they are going with the original plan that the second DLC should be on april because the last DLC was supposed to be on February. And also, note that it’s APPROX every two months, so it’s not accurate.

    • Mar. 22, 12:00pm

      haha it was January 18. It’s been just over 2 months now since then.

  74. Mar. 22, 3:28am

    i luv my country, nice seasonalsss

  75. Mar. 22, 3:16am

    I think the 458 will be the car to have for SS R5 TT

  76. Mar. 22, 2:47am

    Is TokoTurismo sick? He should have been here already, telling how awesome the picture and these time trials and GT6 and Kaz and the colors on this page really are.

    • Mar. 22, 3:06am

      I’ll fill in for him… That picture is amazing, GT5 is, GT6 will be even more, the time trials are good and Kaz is awesome. By the way Toko is your name on here your PSNID? You seem to be the only logical person that appreciates thins we get.

    • Mar. 22, 12:01pm

      @aronh17 – hahaha, nice one….I really don’t understand why the guy gets picked on, Stop bullying, Speak up!

    • Mar. 22, 12:03pm

      A pointless GTP member making a pointless comment about another member that isn’t here to stir crap up.

      GOOOOOD for you.

      FYI, TokoTurismo is the baddest badass of all badasses :)

    • Mar. 22, 2:14pm

      @aronh17 I’m sure there are many more members like you that can fill in him for him, but he brings fanboyism to a whole new level. Wasn’t he the guy who wanted Kaz as his Valentine date – maybe it was another weirdo. In any case when a predictable, small TT event comes up, I’m looking forward to read how he turns this into the most awesome thing ever. It makes GTP more fun than GT5 currently is, and unfortunately that tells more about GT5 than it does about GTP. I wouldn’t call him badass though, I think he’s not older than 14 or so.

    • Mar. 22, 2:29pm

      Actually Kooboi, I’m 21 years old. :) I never knew you’d cared so much, thank you buddy.

      @aronh17 Thank you for filling in for me. I’m name here is TokoTurismo on GTP, and TokoTurbo as my PSNID. :)

      @MyFavoriteGame It’s okay if I get picked on. It just show that I’m loved here on GTP. ;)

      @another_jakhole You’re a badass too my friend. I remember before how cool you were when you told someone that this is the internet, and you can say almost anything. :)

      aronh17, MyFavoriteGame, and another_jakhole I haven’t gotten any friends on GTP yet. You three want to be my first friends of GTP? :)

    • Mar. 22, 4:21pm

      @TokoTurismo get a room

    • Mar. 22, 4:27pm

      ^ Okay. That was random…?

  77. Mar. 22, 2:37am

    Just before anyone goes on about how Turn 10 have gotten Porsche’s, etc and we’ve still not had DLC it has come to my attention that PD still “stall” this months update. Now, from a perspective let’s all think about this.

    Turn 10 not to long ago announced that Porsche was coming back, and Kaz a couple of days later says… “This months update will be postponed”. Has anyone but me clicked yet to think Kaz has went out of his way to perhaps secure some Porsche DLC? Now I’m no big Porsche fan, I do love the 964 but perhaps it could be coming? Perhaps this will be the last BIG update for GT5?

    Another thing that’s also came to my attention is that Ferrari announced the F12 Berlinetta, so I’m wondering if perhaps we’ll see it ingame? It didn’t take them long to model the Aventadore after it was announced, and because Ferrari & PD have such a good partnership with each other, I’m led to believe we could quite possibly see this happening.

    Whatever the outcome, let it be noted when the DLC does arrive and we get updated to Spec 2.x or 3.x GT5 will once again be even more awesome. :D

    • Mar. 22, 2:43am

      Or maybe they just delay because they’re PD and that’s what they do.

    • Mar. 22, 3:00am

      @Kobooi, PD don’t do delays.. Sony do delays.

    • Mar. 22, 3:17am

      Forza don’t get porsche till may 22nd,that is still 2 months awy.

    • Mar. 22, 3:28am

      Maybe premium Ruf’s???

    • Mar. 22, 12:04pm

      @wilde666 – Really?…I didn’t know Sony was responsible for the delay of GT5, is that why Kaz said he needed 2 more yrs? Although you’re prob right in that this DLCs delay is prob the doings of Sony Corp, PD has had their share of delays as well.

    • Mar. 22, 3:31pm

      Pardon but Forza is getting their DLC in May and they are paying 20 bucks for cars from Forza 3 and only 7 new Porsches.

  78. Mar. 22, 1:40am

    Great photo.

  79. Mar. 22, 1:37am

    What the hell? I painted my Aventador in Plum Crazy Metallic as well :D

    I’m a bit sad that there is no new A-Spec events. But these new trails will prove to be a lot of fun.

    • Mar. 22, 3:30am

      I was just thinking about drifting my Aventador. Time to create a new racing profile with 10/90 power transfer. Now if I can just get my friend to sell me his wheel for $50.

  80. Mar. 22, 1:26am

    It’s purple!

  81. Mar. 22, 1:11am

    OMG, Time trial and drift again!?

  82. Mar. 22, 1:09am

    Just other typical comment about DLC…last week PD updated the online car dealer with italian cars…now we have seasonal events with italian cars…Ferrari FF coming in next DLC.
    Remember my words…

    • Mar. 22, 1:10am

      And Ferrari F12 Berlinetta too.
      Remember my words…

    • Mar. 22, 1:42am

      I think they’ll be hard pushed to get the F12 modelled in time, as it was only first announced not long ago… unless PD has exclusive early access to the car like they did with the Merc SLS AMG

    • Mar. 22, 2:34am

      remember the NSX concept as well. PD showed the video of the car the day the real car was revealed to the public.

    • Mar. 22, 7:01am

      I would be pretty happy with one or both of those Ferraris… but PD isn’t known for giving us insane new cars as DLC. Exception, Aventador.

    • Mar. 22, 12:09pm

      I want race cars!! that Ferrari 599xx race car! The GT3 F430s, 458s, BMW MPower Racecar!!! Flying Lizard, Falken Porsche, DBR9.

  83. Mar. 22, 12:57am

    Nice events. It would be nice to see a Italian DLC and some stocked tuned events.

  85. Mar. 22, 12:44am

    • Mar. 22, 12:52am

      Glad to see it wasn’t just me lol. I’m REALLY wanting a Italian cars DLC :(

    • Mar. 22, 2:01am

      As far as italian cars, I really think we only need a bugatti veyron (german/ french/ italian, whatever), a few pagani premiums (huayra & zonda f roadster), a diablo, and a few classic ferrari’s (288 GTO, 60’s f1, 50’s f1, 125 s, 250 GTO, F50 GT, F50). Other than that we got a good selection of italian cars. I think we could use more of every brand of car outside of Japanese brands, we got more than enough japanese cars, yet you know there gonna be adding more anyway, they have no shame at all

  88. Mar. 22, 12:11am

    sports hard tires sucks, just my opinion, like the 600 Italian cars, need the same in A spec with no tire limits, Monza maybe? Eigar Nordwand Short Track? Liked the 650 Nordschleife :)

    • Mar. 22, 1:53am

      Sports hard tires suck? Let me guess, you use a controller right? I’m guessing you also use driver aids? I’m also guessing you don’t care about realism to a degree?

      Well that’s fine, but the only way sports hard tires “suck” is that they are the default tires for sports cars in gt5, and in general, they are grippier than the tires you’d get on supercars in real life. High performance road tires, the type you’d get on a REAL supercar, are actually closer to comfort soft in GT5. Polyphony digital knows this, that’s why all real world competitions they’ve done, including the David Coulthard live time trial event, they use comfort soft.

      So these tires you say “suck”, are actually quite easy to use, so I wouldn’t complain if I was you, and I wouldn’t call myself a sim racer, because you seem about as casual and noobish as they come

    • Mar. 22, 5:14am

      TomBrady speaks words of a wise old Tom. Slap racing shoes on for stern laps but to learn how to master your wheels knock the rubber down a notch or two, apply power and brakes progressively and start to revel in the delights this game chucks out in spades once you get out of the ‘arcade’ mindset.
      GT5 is the berries!

    • Mar. 22, 7:01am

      He did say it was his opinion though…

    • Mar. 22, 12:19pm

      @ImprezaAddict – Yes he did, and on the internet that nullifies any statement that was previous made.

      @TomBrady – You’re absolutely right, the pros love Sport tires, although I’m no “pro” myself, I understand the challenges and skill, thus the greater satisfaction that comes with Sport tires. I remember getting the GT-R Official Record trophy, 7:27….great sense of accomplishment.

  89. Mar. 22, 12:10am

    YES! DLC is soon will be here.

      I hear you man. I’m getting bumbed and really annoyed. Something tells me that the supposed 6 (once every 2 months for a year according to Kaz) DLC’s we’re supposed to get will probably only be 5 in the end, maybe 5 and a half if we’re lucky. This is reminding me of the terrible delays the game suffered in the first place.

      Let’s not forget why delays bother us so much, it’s because we love this game so much.

      PD do take there time, but you can’t rush perfection.
