Kaz Yamauchi Mentions GT5 DLC

Before you get overly excited let me warn you that tweets from the GT man himself @Kaz_Yamauchi can sometimes be hard to understand as they are written in Japanese and when translated can be hard to decipher.

K Yamauchi san posted this message on twitter........ (Gran Turismo 5, Kazunori Yamauchi, PS3)

Man the support for this game is unbelievable.

Awesome Support / GT6 as PS4 Launch Title
Yep. They've given us TONS of updates, all for free. Support like this is just unheard of these days. I hope they do release some dlc though for people who want some cool new cars that aren't in the game.

On a side note, I hope that GT6 comes out as a launch PS4 title. Imagine a 32SPU Cell processor with 4GB of RAM and a better Video Card/GPU running the next Gran Turismo title. The cars would simply be indistinguishable from their real counterparts.

Well we have been getting several updates+content for free since GT5 released.
Which is good. That's how you support a game! :)

That DLC may have some pretty good stuff.
Dee_91  +   1182d ago
the updates include alot of content just imagine what dlc will include

even with the events that happened in japan they still manage to support this game so much

i cant wait til they settle in at the new studio

very true awesome support...

Play this "game" everyday, have tournament races every tuesday, fun active community, and the game has evolved wonderfully since launch!

Just plain freakin awesome!

Should have more than 300 hours logged in to this game, and i still havn't scrached the surface!

Simply put -
this is the best title in the best console based racing series of ALL-TIME. GT5: All PS3 owners should own this "game".

ps - thanks for the incoming dlc Kaz. GT5 gets more updates than the PS3. 8D

very true, love this game

A GT5-A spec with full new circuits, more dynamic weather, new car sounds, a better online, a real tire degradation and better work on shadows would be great.
Hope Kazunori is working really hard on GT actually because this licence deserve it.
MintBerryCrunch  +   1182d ago
honestly i would like a LEGIT career in A-spec, there really is no sense of progression, you just level up and race, not much choice and freedom in my opinion, but the seasonal events are great, the more the better
MaxXAttaxX  +   1182d ago
I like it, but not as much as the map. There's something about the map in GT games that I liked :P
petko23  +   1182d ago

GT5 Prologue DLC coming soon
I bet it will be released in October to try to compete with Forza 4.

they don't need to compete with forza ... GT5 tooks years to get their status ..they are in better position ..they just release things "when it's done "..

Only forza fans are constantly bring it in GT5 articles .. this is what should matter ... new content is coming and fixes are coming .. MOre than likely is a new wheel support system that would prove especially usefull for newer cars .. And for that i'm just glad at KAz and polyphony for their work .

NOw escuse me i have this time trial rally on snow to get on GOLD...

Dam, can't wait Gran Turismo 5 is the best.
theonlylolking  +   1182d ago
The greatest racing game is soon to get even more amazing with DLC.
HOSe  +   1182d ago
itll be free!
TheColbertinator  +   1182d ago
I want a massive NASCAR update around the winter.

GT5 is already a massive game though,I've played for months an I still have only 2% complete.
Tachyon_Nova  +   1182d ago
BS mate, it 'only' takes a few hours to get to 2% complete, definetly not months.
TheColbertinator  +   1182d ago

Fine then


You happy?
Redempteur  +   1182d ago
well it depends what you're doing ...

you can play hours in arcade mode and have a small % completion rate ...
SAE  +   1182d ago
my brother will be happy ! :D ..
xtreampro_REVENGE!  +   1182d ago
So after almost 1 year they opened their mouths about DLC? I don't call that support, but at least they still want to finish the game AFTER it's been released. Anyways I got to about lvl 30 in A-spec and then got bored pretty quickly.

GT4 was much more entertaining.
Dee_91  +   1182d ago
so much fail ..
xtreampro_REVENGE!  +   1182d ago
Do you have the game? most likely not.
Dee_91  +   1181d ago
1. 7 months dont = almost a year
2. PD mentioned DLC back December and January
3.You dont call adding 5 new races a month for FREE your obviously trolling , most games would charge for that
4. Updating and Improving means finishing now ??
5. Getting to lvl 30 takes atleast a month putting in about 5hrs 5 days a week . Most games takes a week to complete . You said you got tired after reaching lvl 30 like it was a simple quick and easy task task .. hell i was tired after reaching 30 who wouldnt be . Thing is you try to twist it around into a bad thing. Either that or you never even played the game

You failed on so many levels
PS3Freak  +   1182d ago
2 things that I want:

ALL STANDARD CARS ARE PREMIUM!(obviously not going to happen)

Removal of the PP restrictions on the seasonal event.

I actually stopped playing this game becuase of the PP restrictions.

There is nothing worse then having a fully pimped out car, about to race it and get over 100 grand, only to find out that you have to cut the horsepower in half, or add another 1000 pounds of weight to the car.

Really sucked the motivation out of me.
CernaML  +   1182d ago
You must have really hated those seasonal events when they were first introduced then.

The restrictions were far more unforgivable than that silly PP limit.
kneon  +   1181d ago
So you're only motivated to play when you have a seriously overpowered car? I would rather they make the restrictions even tighter, as it is now most seasonal events are trivially easy to win if you pick a car with maximum PP.
CernaML  +   1182d ago
This game only gets that much more amazing with every update they release. I need to buy me a play seat NOW. Got no place to mount my wheel to in the living room atm. :( Oh how I miss cruising around in a 1:1 identical replica of the Nurburgring.
FalconR289  +   1182d ago
Great now I have to wait because my ps3 randomly dicided to implode on itself so now I have to wait forever.
felonycarclub  +   1182d ago
so they are moving to a new location, i really hope they are working on gt6 and i hope its for the ps4, so it should be come out as a launch title, i would like some dlc for gt5 but i would rather them work on gt6 and get all the cars as premiums thats all, everything else is perfect in gt5, i can only dream of how good gt6 would look on ps4, gt6 is gona rule the next gen just like gt5 did this gen
Pyscho_Mantis  +   1182d ago
*drools* gimme now!!!
VonBraunschweigg  +   1182d ago
Spa Francochamps
Brand's Hatch
& Spa Francochamps

That's all I need. Spa Francochamps mostly, the only game I have with that track is Shift and Shift is hardly a sim.
kneon  +   1181d ago
Good choices, and it would be great if we can get some of those great old race cars from the 30's to 60's to go along with these tracks
robgroove  +   1181d ago
hmmm, I wonder if we will see all the standard cars available as premiums. It would explain why DP gave us x3 credits on the seasonal events. now everyone has most of the used cars its time to start again and buy them all in premium.
just a thought.
mayberry  +   1181d ago
very good news about the dlc! polyphony always respects it's fans with lots of content for free! after the quakes and tsunami, it its a real shock to be getting more dlc!

coangrats to Yamauchi san on the 24h nurburgring class victory!
