PSN Issues Holding Back Next Gran Turismo 5 Update

Gran Turismo 5 164 May 23, 2011 by

Kazunori Yamauchi is back to posting messages on Twitter Sunday afternoon, and he offered a bit of information on what’s holding up the next Gran Turismo 5 update. According to translations by our own SHIRAKAWA Akira, Polyphony Digital is waiting until the PlayStation Network finally “settles down” before publishing the next revision of the game.

Though online gaming services have been restored in most areas, it is still offline in some parts of the world, including Japan. The delay appears to be related to issues with Japanese credit card companies, and it’s not clear when they will be resolved. Other parts of the network, including the PlayStation Store, remain offline for everyone, though it’s supposed to return on May 24th at the “end of May”.

Regardless, this is refreshing news for those of us eager to see what’s to come in the next GT5 update, though you would be wise to temper your expectations.
