You are welcome.

For all GT fans, GTPlanet dot net is highly recommended. This forum eats drinks and sleeps Gran Turismo.

I got answers to all my questions from here itself.

I heard somewhere that GT5P will be getting the much awaited "Damage" patch in the near future.

I really hope GT5 comes out with some really interesting tracks like Cadwell Park, Oulton Park, Brands Hatch, Willow Springs etc.

Any idea if the Veyron will be included in the car list?

Woweeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! The graphics are truly out of this world.

The car control is a bit strange though. I guess will have to look up the proper settings for it.

GT5P FTW!!!!

Default A review!

Got my copy on 17th and have been hooked, literally hook line and sinker!

Being a Prologue version, gameplay is limited but it's not a cake walk as some are saying on GTPlanet dot net. The mission style races are fairly challenging. The other races are too short and comparitively easy to win.

The Car List again is limited but I'm satisfied w.r.t to the quality and spectrum of cars available.

The graphics are IMO the best for any genre of games. The replication of cars, tracks and the game physics are really stunning.

Online play is a bit of a let down because you cannot choose whom you race against. The online server decides that for you and currently there is a truck load of loosers and rammers online. No fun at all!!

The racing line feature is really helpful and allows you to learn the limited number of tracks fairly quickly.

I've completed the Class 'C' and 'B' races and am currently racing at level 'A'.
Will have enough credits soon to splurge on the F430 and the F40.

Will update if find anything worthy of mentioning.

GT5P FTW!!

I guess the easiest way (if you're not sure where to pick one up from) is to go online and purchase from the PlayStation store.


Has ANYONE here been able to download the update patch yet? I've been trying for nearly 3 weeks now - no can do!

I don't know because I didn't get a chance to play the game pre-update.
Whatever it is, killer game!!

I'm just on the last race of A class. The F430 challenge is left to complete.

EDIT: Yeah, you could say that again . Just completed the last A class race. Skyline Coupe got delivered and as they, let the fun begin.

I'm still waiting for my copy. Damn these Sony guys, they're taking ages. Think i'd better source a copy myself.

Which the best place to buy it?
