Gran Turismo 5 Should Have DLC (RunDLC)

This November, Sony will rock the racing world with Gran Turismo 5, without question one of 2010’s biggest and most gorgeous video games. This highly anticipated title ships with well over 950 cars, tracks covering a wide variety of locations, extensive online features and full damage modeling, a first for the series. What it won’t have, however, is downloadable content. GT franchise creator Kazunori Yamauchi publicly stated that there is no plan to add new items to the game, and we think that’s a shortsighted decision. Here now, are a few reasons why GT5 should include some good old-fashioned DLC.

i wouldnt mind DLC but the game has so much to offer out of the box that most people will take months to finish the game and get the cars that they wish....but what i think should happen first is for PD to patch GT5 and all of its 1000 cars over time and make them premium like the 200 or so that they have done already with

GT5 and LBP2 are the reason I`ll be getting PSN+. Free DLC for GT5 and LBP2 through PSN+ will sell ALOT of subscriptions. Make it happen Sony.

There is already some type of DLC:

"Voucher for five (5) DLC cars with custom livery and tuning upgrades"

http://www.amazon.com/Gran-...

"Voucher for five (5) exclusive high-end cars with custom Gran Turismo livery and performance upgrades"

These are in the Collector's edition. I think it is common sense that more courses and cars will be made available.

Yeah, I rather they do what they did with GT5:P. Patch it for free with new cars and features instead of DLC unless the DLC is free from the start.

You have a great point...at the same time, the DLC seemed to work great for Forza. Of course, Forza doesn't have as many rides.

DLC really gets a bad rap, especially here on N4G. It has nothing to do with "content that should have been included to begin with", as I hear quite often.

DLC keeps a game fresh by offering content that didn't exist when the game was released. Forza 3 was released in 2009, but there have already been 2010 model cars released via DLC. I'm glad that in the coming years, as new model cars are released, I can add them to my game via DLC if I choose to.

Driving sims are a genre that should always be open to the possibility of DLC because of the yearly release of new car models.

good dlc :
-wipeout hd fury
-burnout paradise island
-lbp mgs & water packs

bad dlc :
-mw2 dlc ( recycled old maps )
-soul calibur 4 dlc
-assasin creed 2 dlc
-resident evil 5 versus dlc

simple as that .
why these are good dlc ? because it's content that was devellopped POST release in order to please fans/ increase community and isn't a dlc key at 100 kb

why these are bad dlc ?
Because this is content cut from the disc or cut from the release disc even though it should have been included from the start and of course it wasn't devellopped post release .

feel free to disagree with me but please tell me why .( if you can )

Why say it should have DLC?

The game will have soo much packed into it, would we need anything more in the near future once the game releases.

The game isnt even released yet and we are giving reasons why we should have DLC for it.

I wouldnt want DLC for atleast a year once the game releases, because i would want everything to be in the game!...and im pretty sure everything will be in it!
