Recommended Posts

VELOCIPEDE
Kazunori Yamauchi has announced Gran Turismo 5‘s next software update and new downloadable content will be coming on December 20, 2011. Via Twitter:

[Japanese tweet, translated:] GT5 next update, DLC, Christmas is one week later. On December 20. Tomorrow is going to be a press release.

[English tweet:] The release of the next GT5 update, DLC, and Christmas present is coming next week.

Polyphony Digital has already posted an online service maintenance notice for the date, between the hours of 03:00-04:00 GMT, so the new material should become available at that specific time.

UPDATE: Sony has jumped the gun a bit, posting all the information about the new content on their blog. Here’s a complete listing of all the new changes coming in GT5 2.02:

  • Users can now change wheels on Standard cars
  • The settings sheets will include a new ‘copy’ feature
  • In GT Auto, players will be able to see how the oil changes, aerodynamic parts, engine overhauls, and racing modifications will affect performance points and engine power, before and after their application
  • Free coupons have been added that allow you to wash cars, change oil, overhaul your engine, or refresh the car body in GT Auto (10 coupons will be distributed for free to each of those who have downloaded the 2.02 update)
  • Pressing the Square button in the car coupon selection screen of the Car Delivery will now allow you to exchange all car coupons at once, rather than doing one at a time
  • In screens where the [Garage] and [Driver List] buttons are displayed in the A/B Spec events, Special Events, and Seasonal Events, pressing the Square button will now show the [Garage], and pressing the Triangle button will bring up the drivers list
  • In My Lounge, the room settings will feature a new ‘Max. number of participants’ setting
  • In the event selection screen of seasonal events, there are now ☆(star) marks that show the number of Gold Trophies attained in each event
  • Improved racing sound effects
  • Elements of the steering assist controls (used when using certain controllers on Racing Karts) have been tweaked.

These new cars will also be available as DLC for $3.99:

  • 2011 Mini Cooper S
  • 2010 Volkswagen Golf VI R
  • 2010 Volkswagen Scirocco R
  • 2012 Nissan GT-R Black edition R35.

The blog post also confirms the Toyota 86 will be available for free in the 2.02 update, and the previous batch of DLC will now be available on all the user accounts of a PlayStation 3 console (they can be purchased from their respective dealers within the game).

Finally, anyone who purchased the first batch of DLC will receive a free “Gran Turismo Racing Kart 125 SP” along with five free “New Car Refresh” cards that reset any car in the game back to as-new condition, without losing any modifications that have been performed to it.

ciao a tutti, avrei alcune domande su GT5, spero possiate aiutarmi e scusatemi se vi sembrerò ignorante:

- nella demo delle vetture si alternano due tracciati di solito: uno l'ho individuato nella Toscana asfalto, mentre l'altro immerso nel verde con staccionate in legno, non riesco a capire che tracciato sia. sapreste aiutarmi?

- come metodi poco ortodossi sono arrivato a sbloccare la 24 ore di LeMans, ma mio malgrado ho verificato che anche qui non c'è possibilità di inserire i danni come invece si può fare nelle gare Arcade.

Nelle gare Arcade però non c'è la possibilità di inserire le gare a tempo (nel mio caso 24 ore) e tanto meno di salvare/sospendere la gara entrando ai box...

Qualcuno sa come correre dunque la 24 ore di Lemans anche con i danni e salvare la partita per correrla in più sessioni?

Grazie a tutti.

In previsione del nuovo DLC che dovrebbe uscire domani anche in Europa, Polyphony ha pubblicato la nuova patch per aggiornare Gran Turismo 5 alla versione 2.02 (soli 246 MB di upgrade). Tra le novità, il cambio gomme anche per le auto standard, la possibilità di ricomprare le auto del DLC dai concessionari, miglioramenti al consumo dei pneumatici e agli effetti sonori in pista, nuovi settaggi per i volanti e sopratutto un'auto bonus: la Toyota FT86 (versione 2012) come omaggio ai fan della serie. La Sony comunica inoltre che nel solo 2011 è stato venduto un altro milione di copie di GT5, per un totale di 7,3 milioni dal lancio.

Major Changes and New Features

  • Wheels can now be changed on Standard cars.
  • Downloadable contents can now be shared by multiple users with the Family Upgrade.
    (See Polyphony’s complete FAQ for more details.)
  • Cars purchased through DLC will now appear in the Car Dealerships. You can purchase additional versions of the same vehicles within the game using earned race credits.
  • A copy button has been added to the lower left of the settings screen. A settings sheet saved in either A/B/C can now be copied to A, B or C.

Gifts

  • Toyota 86 GT ’12 will be available to all players who install the 2.02 update.
  • Free coupons have been added that allow you to wash cars, change oil, overhaul your engine, or restore chassis rigidity in GT Auto. 10 coupons will be distributed for free to each of those who have downloaded the 2.02 update.
  • The Gran Turismo Racing Kart 125 SPL. and five New Car Refresh cards will be provided to customers purchasing any DLC packs released in October 2011. The New Car Refresh can be used from the Special Coupons option in the items list, and will return your car to its brand new condition (before breaking-in the car’s engine). Equipped parts and current paint on the car will not be affected by this card.

Other Improvements

  • Pressing the □ button in the car coupon selection screen of the Car Delivery, will now allow you to exchange all car coupons at once (maximum number of coupons you can receive at once is 100).
  • Tire-wear speed adjustment
  • In GT Auto you can now see how the oil changes, aerodynamic parts, engine overhauls, and racing modifications will affect performance points and engine power, before and after their application.
  • In screens where the [Garage] and [Driver List] buttons are displayed in the A/B Spec events, Special Events, and Seasonal Events, pressing the □ button will now show the [Garage], and pressing the △ button will show the drivers list.
  • An option has now been added for ‘Max. number of participants – this is featured in the room settings of My Lounge.
  • Added ☆ marks which show the number of Gold Trophies attained in each event, in the event selection screen of seasonal events.
  • Racing sound effect adjustment
  • Steering assist controls (used when using certain controllers on Racing Karts) have been adjusted. This applies to steering wheels with a 200 degree turning radius. The [steering Type] (Amateur/Professional) settings in the Game Options will be ignored, and the controller’s steering angle will now directly affect the tire turning angle of the car.

Correction of Known Issues

  • Fixed issue where you would overrun without resetting, when entering pit lane at low speed on some tracks.
  • Fixed issue with Performance Points calculations for the Red Bull X2010 and the X2011.
  • Fixed issue where the rear wing/aerodynamic settings were reset when switching between setting sheets.
  • An issue was corrected where the car would become stuck in autopilot from the pit lane if a certain condition is met in an endurance race on the Tsukuba Circuit. Also revised the entry route during pit stops and speed judgement.
  • Improved multi-monitor stability

In a Christmas Day surprise, Newegg, Amazon, and Buy.com have revealed a mysterious new game: Gran Turismo 5 XL Edition. Both Amazon and Newegg list a release date of January 17, 2012 and a price of $39.99 USD, but offer no further details on what this “XL Edition“ will actually contain.

This actually isn’t the first time the “Gran Turismo 5 XL” name has surfaced; it was originally included in a brief Sony FAQ about their “PlayStation Rewards Program” earlier this month, but didn’t garner much attention without any other supporting evidence or rumors of its existence. With three major U.S. retailers now officially listing the product, however, it is all but confirmed.

XL will – most likely – be the North American version of the Gran Turismo 5 Spec 2.0 disc update recently announced for Japan, which includes all of GT5‘s software updates and DLC out-of-the-box. As you may recall, Sony Europe has already downplayed the chance of Spec 2.0 discs for the Old World.

Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
