    Cool,

    Are you updated with latest update, 1.05? came out a month a go 608mb to download..

    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 race 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 [GT Mode]-[GT Life] 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 Dealer]

    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 the 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 having difficulties getting ahead in the game, due to a lack of funds for tuning and purchasing required cars.

    Race Information Display
    [Race Information Display] is now available in [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 "Red Bull X1" has been changed to "Red Bull X2010".

    Integration with the Website
    The main features within [GT Mode]-[Community] can now also be accessed through the "gran-turismo.com" official website.

    Good news, theres another update next month

    Formally known as "Gran Turismo Anywhere," Remote Races allow you to control B-Spec races from a PC or mobile device by logging onto the official Gran Turismo website. You won't be able drive, but you will be able to issue commands during the race to a virtual racer that levels up (and down) over time. While not particularly engaging, it is a good way of earning money to use towards better cars in-game.

    With the update arriving in early February, it seems Polyphony Digital is making good on its plans to release near-monthly updates for the PS3 driving sim. Update 1.05 came out in late December, and added 608MB of new features and tweaks. What else could be in store for 1.06?

    Hopefully not as big.. i dont do b-spec races, find them boring.
