Gran Turismo 5 Mega-Patch Is Racing To Your PS3

Gran Turismo 5 Mega-Patch Is Racing To Your PS3

When you release a game of the scope of Gran Turismo 5, there are bound to be hiccups. And GT5 had some hiccups. A massive patch issued overnight will hopefully remedy many of those!

Taking the game to version 1.06, it adds a ton of fixes and new features to the game. Most important is probably the fact you can start and monitor B-Spec races from a browser, even if you’re away from home, though AI tweaks and additional features for online races are also appreciated.

There’s also support for multi-monitor setups and, mercifully, the removal of one of the game’s startup messages, making the agonising wait from XMB to starting grid just that little bit shorter.

You can see the full list of updates – many of which will improve our everyday experience with the game – at the link below.

  • I don’t know why people are so bothered about non-premium cars. The only difference I notice is the in-car view, which I don’t use anyway. People just always want something to whine about.

    • I ONLY drive premium cars, and always using the in-car view. Except in events where there are no premium cars that meet the entry requirements. But even so I haven’t driven anywhere near half of them. 200 is a hell of a lot of cars.

      If they just had the 200 premiums and left out the “standard” ones people wouldn’t have cared. But including the standard ones provides an opportunity to piss and moan like old women, and that’s an opportunity some people can never pass up.
