GT5 Functionality Update 2.0

When Gran Turismo 5 launched almost a year ago now, Kazunori Yamauchi, the game’s creator, promised fans clutching their copies of the Real Driving Simulator, that the launch of the eagerly awaited title was not the end of the journey for the game but the start. (Gran Turismo 5, Kazunori Yamauchi, polyphony digital, PS3)

so...
would that make Forza 4:
The Simulated Driving Reality

I loved the part where he states that this update would be free. That is an obvious statement because it is being called a "functionality" update.

LOL^
Do you know how many things they are adding to the game? It isn't just a 'patch'. They are adding interior view for ALL the standard cars, meaning the age old "Well Forza has interior view for everything' argument will be moot

They are adding new NASCARs

Shortening loadtimes

Improving AI and physics

New features for online

and the best part, is that they aren't selling this all packaged as a sequel and calling it GT6. Its all FREE BABY!

And is it true it's coming on the 10th? And dlc is going to release shortly after

Take note developers, THIS is how you do downloadable content. Not selling "extra" content, half the time of which could have been available since release, and not putting a price on every little piece of content distributed. Glad to see Polyphony digital showing continuous support for the fanbase, and addressing their concerns to the fans' benefit, not theirs.

Is that how the charged you for the prolonge, i guess its okey to charge extra in advance but not afterwards that most devs do

GT5 Prologue was available a full TWO AND A HALF YEARS before GT5 was released. It was to provide a taste for GT fans for enduring the long wait, but was simply too small to be considered simply a demo. Actually, there was also free content given out in GT5:P in the form of a...drum roll please... Spec 2.0 update!! The update added over 40+ cars, infrastructure fixes and a few physics improvements. In fact, they added ANOTHER free update, which coincided with the announcement of Ferrari's California and Lotus' Evora. All content unlocked in GT5:P can be transferred over to the full GT5's arcade mode.

You can argue whether the price justifies the purchase or not, but for the fans it more than justified itself, which is why more than 5 million people bought this "demo." If you want an example of a game that didn't justify it's price, and is a clear case of DLC gone awry, then look no further than Halo: ODST. A game which added one new multiplayer mode, (which was good), and a lackluster 5 hour campaign for a full $60. MS simply wanted to milk Halo's fanbase because they know they would shell out for anything Halo.

I know that the prolonge was availible a long time prior to the game was actually released and i bought both the prolongue and the game itself but to me its kind of a prior game release dlc pack. I love both GT and Forza two games that oozes quality but i reacted to the way you said it in the way you said it.

Good I want that update now...

Sad thing is that people will STILL find something to complain about.

I'm very happy with the mid-save in the endurance races and with for the G25 racing wheel. This game is the sole reason for my purchase of a PS3.
