    Termination of the Remaining Online Services for Gran Turismo 5

    http://eu.gran-turismo.com/us/news/00_4372104.html

    More info on GT5 online being terminated. At least some of the content will be available after online is gone.

    As previously mentioned in past announcements, the remaining online services for Gran Turismo 5, including Online Lobby, Seasonal Events, Museum, News, Community, Remote Race, Log in Bonus, Online Dealership and DLC purchase, will no longer be available after 03:00 EDT, 30 May, 2014.

    We would like to thank everyone for their passion in supporting Gran Turismo 5’s online services, and we look forward to providing even better online services for Gran Turismo 6.



    Regarding DLC availability after end of service

    All DLC for Gran Turismo 5 will be removed from the PS Store on 30 April 2014. Please take note of the following precautions regarding the items listed below.

    "Racing Car Pack" and "Course Pack" (including those purchased as part of the "Complete Pack")
    After you have purchased those items, please complete the following steps before the online services are terminated.

    1. Select the Downloadable Content icon on the GT5 home screen and install the purchased items.
    2. Access the PlayStationŽStore from the XMB and enter the "Gran Turismo 5" section. Purchase the [Family Upgrade] for the items in question (free of charge).

    By following the above 2 steps, you’ll be able to use the items even after the termination of the online services. If you delete the GT5 Game Data after the termination date of the online services , you’ll be able to download and install them again. You can find the instructions in the “How to download the DLCs when you deleted the Game Data” section on this page.
    You can find more details about the "Family Upgrade" item following the corresponding FAQ page in the Related Link section below.

    "Paint Pack" and "Racing Gear Pack" (including those purchased as part of the "Complete Pack")
    After you have purchased those items, select the Downloadable Content icon on the GT5 home screen and install the purchased items before the online services end.

    You will be able to use the items even after the termination of the online services; however, you will NOT be able to install them again if you delete the GT5 Save Data after the online services end.

    Any other DLC items
    You can use the items even after the online services are terminated without any special operation. After you have purchased those items, select the Downloadable Content icon on the GT5 home screen and install the purchased items before the online services end. If you delete the GT5 Game Data after the termination date of the online services, you’ll be able to download and install them again. You can find the instructions in the “How to download the DLCs when you deleted the Game Data” section on this page.

    How to download the DLCs when you deleted the Game Data
    In case you deleted the GT5 Game Data and the DLC is removed from the game, you can download them again from the [Download List], accessible in the PlayStationŽStore or by selecting [PSN] > [Account Management] > [Transaction Management] from the PS3™ XMB.

    Regarding Gran Turismo TV

    Distribution of all programs on Gran Turismo TV within Gran Turismo 5 will cease on 14 March 2014. The programs you have purchased will be available for viewing and downloading from [My List] during the availability period.

    The services for Gran Turismo TV within Gran Turismo 5 will be terminated completely on 14 March 2015. All programs after this date will not be available except the opening and the ending movies.

    Maybe it is because I have had a few drinks but to me it seems like they contradict themselves

    As previously mentioned in past announcements, the remaining online services for Gran Turismo 5, including Online Lobby, Seasonal Events, Museum, News, Community, Remote Race, Log in Bonus, Online Dealership and DLC purchase, will no longer be available after 03:00 EDT, 30 May, 2014.
    Then

    All DLC for Gran Turismo 5 will be removed from the PS Store on 30 April 2014.
    30 May is after 30 April right?
    So that means you can't buy DLC after April but they say in the first part it is end of May.

    anyone else confused?

    I assume they're both meant to be either April or May.

    And why are they removing the dlc? I assume it's cars and tracks that can be used in single player? I don't see why taking the servers offline would mean they have to stop people from being able to buy them....
