There's tons of stuff. Back up game save is the biggest for me though. Such a needed feature.

Me too :shh:
Do you still actively play it? Or has it been laid to rest in a coffin?

EDIT: Nevermind, I've found you. Last played 16/12/2010

The Online Collector's Dealership is brilliant. Just loaded it up and there's a Formula GT sitting there for 4.9 million credits. I should be able to get the German Touring Car Champs done now.

UPDATE NOTICE:


Update Notice (1.05)

A new update has been released for Gran Turismo 5.
The main contents of the update are as follows:

Seasonal Events
[Seasonal Events] have been added to the upper left side of the [GT Mode] - [GT Life] screen. From here you can participate in official online events from the Polyphony Digital team. In these events, all participants under the same regulations, and if you complete the event you will win rewards and experience. In Time Trials and Drift Trials, compete on the leader boards with players around the world.

Online Dealership
An [Online Dealership] has been added to the left center of the screen. In here you will find popular and rare used cars. You might just come across that one car you've always been looking for, that you haven't been able to find in the used car dealership.

Online Race Rewards and Experience
When you complete a race in the open lobby or my lounge, you will now gain rewards and experience points. Therefore if you are focused more on playing online, you'll still be able to gain rewards and levels that you need to progress in GT Life.

Driving Distance and Number of wins in Online Races
The driving distance and number of wins you achieve when you complete a race in Open lobby or My lounge will now affect your stats in Profile and the Garage. Here again the results from your online play will cumulate within GT Life

Improved Rewards
The rewards for winning races in Both A-Spec and B-Spec in GT mode- GT Life have been increased for a limited time only. This applies until the end of January 2011. This is a great chance for those who were previously have difficulties getting ahead in the game, due to lack of funds for tuning and purchasing required cars.


Race Information Display
Is now available in the Start-Quick Options. You can also see this in Race Display in Options.

Save Data Backup
You can now copy and restore your save data. For details please refer to the in-game Manual

Personal BGM (menu)
From [options]-[hardware]-[Audio], it is now possible to set the Personal BGM (menu). This can also be accessed from the Music Library within GT Mode.

Car Name Change
The official name of the "Red Bull X1" has been changed to "Red Bull X2010"

Integration within the website
THe main features within GT Mode - Community can now be accessed through the "Gran-Turismo.com Official Website.

Important Note
We have made improvements to the Log within GT Mode - Community section,
in order to make its operation more stable. Please note that the information that was here before the update has been reset.

Some contents of the update will not be applied unless you sign into the Playstation Network when you play the game.
Going to find the highest paying ones and get some extra before it goes back down.

:yep: Just read that.

I would recommend the Daytona one in Like The Wind cup in Expert. Easy money for 4mins work, currently 70K for 1st place (not boosted yet).

I haven't done that one yet. I've progressed through expert very quickly, only have three events to do but one of those is the Historic Event :unsure:... which hopefuly with this new patch should be a bit easier to complete.

The best race for grinding money is the the Indy race in American Championships. It used to be 98k for 4 minutes work but has been upped to 117k for 4 minutes work.

Uncharted 2 and FIFA 11.
Thanks for the Playstation 3 game suggestions,Brotherhood.This months Ps3 magazine does say both games are highly regarded so i might decided to buy rather both games or buy Uncharted2.I also appreciate the advice

Look for the RX8 - 245-246bhp.

Don't do an oil change, get a rear spoiler, sports medium, stage 1 weight reduction.

And you're good to go.
