    GT 5 update 2.16 is up and online play is down

    http://us.gran-turismo.com/us/news/00_1576414.html

    In line with the online services of Gran Turismo 5 coming to an end as of May 31, 2014, the following update will be released:


    Update Server Maintenance

    May 30th/31st, 2014 from 11:00PM to 1:00AM EDT

    An update will be released during this server maintenance period. Please note that after the start of the maintenance, all online services will become inaccessible.

    Main Contents of the Update

    - All online services will become disabled at this time. This includes the DLC’s from the top screen, the login bonus for GT Life, Open Lobby, Seasonal Events, Online Dealerships, Car Delivery, and all features within the “Community” menu.

    - The Gran Turismo TV section accessible from the top screen is part of the online services, but previously purchased programs will still be accessible during the set viewable period for each program.

    Thank you all for playing Gran Turismo 5 over the years.
    Hereafter we hope you will join us in playing the current PlayStationR3 exclusive title, Gran Turismo 6.
    .... and there she goes.

    What a shame. I'll never get to experience it, as buying it without online at this point while there is a superior option(GT6) seems pointless. Gt6 should get me to drive club though.

    well, that all depends. i wouldn't be surprised if GT5 was going for $10 or even less at some places. but yeah, not much content there if you don't play online.

    Well, GT6 was heavily discounted recently where I live, so I'm giving 5 away to a relative.

    Never played 5 that much. Hope the menus are faster/more intuitive this time.

    Wishlist: Jade Cocoon Reboot, Oni Reboot, the next JRPG, Wasteland 2 [coming soon!]
    SotC 2, Fallout 4, next Obsidian Fallout, Project Eternity, Uncharted 4, Divinity [NEW!]
    ...
    [South Park: Stick of Truth is pure gaming bliss!]

    newbie here,

    just bought a PS3 and GT6 - a little disappointed by the graphics. thought they would be soo much better. read someplace that the update from previous versions (gt5 or gt4 ...) was only to the newer cars and tracks, the old stuff stayed the same. since i just started, i am on the novice level racing the honda fit, i see shadows skipping and some strange flickers in the racetracks.

    i'm cheap so i bought the ps3 rather than ps4 or xbox one. do the graphics get better with new tracks and cars?

    i posted in a previous thread to get my minimum post to start a new one about this subject
