Gran Turismo 5 update 2.08 detailed, three new cars
This should have came a long time ago. Too little too late since I already traded it in.
Its games like these that make me think, How can theu even improve on that!
Seriously they'll show a PS4 GT and I'll be like, GT5?

There are alot GT4 assets (both tracks and cars) in that game plus a boatload of PS2 cars aka standard cars. I expect the next GT on PS4 will be a purely next gen game graphically. Lots of room for improvement. The premium cars and the lighting are great though. But the standard cars and certain tracks like Laguna Seca and others look PS2 quality. The city tracks look the best. That whole game is a mixed bag with very inconsistent graphical quality. So definitely lots of room for improvement. I wont even get into what it lacks in features and customization/tuning options. GT5 feels very souless and barebones compared to the GTs before it.

Sweet update, cannot wait. Say what you will about GT5, but the developers worked their asses and continue to do so. Every 2 or 3 weeks we have a new race, drift and time trial in case anyone completed A-spec and B-spec or just don't wanna bother with them. They are still doing DLC and patch updates.
How many developers are that consistent? And it's almost 2 years since this game came out. They could have dropped the ball by just leaving it "as is" but they persist with updates and new refinements. The standard cars don't even bother me at this point. There's just too many good features that far outweigh the negatives, FOR ME.
And I drive a car, so naturally, this is my favourite racing sim/racer. And it's funny cause I've never been a fan of the series only until GT4.
