Oh no not another GT5 Thread.... didnt find anything discussing gameplay so on as it is offically out 2moro but some will get there copies today.

Just got my copy of GT5 from Bestbuy delivered by the post man

Loading it on to the PS3 taking its sweet time.

Thought I would create a topic for online ID's and people can play add, play each other and maybe even a big group race (16 users)

Thoughts so far?

Mine does not work as I cannot get any response through main menu after install... Have u driven yet?

Psn: beri00

I got my copy this morning, but can't seem to use it. It is taking ages to load up (about 4-5 minutes), it pauses for a couple of minutes at the black screen with GT5 text in the middle, then says it can't connect to the servers. Then it pauses again for another couple of minutes after the intro video (when the driver is walking around the pits) before it says the same thing again.

I'm signed into PSN Is this because it arrived before the release date? Is anyone else having this problem?

Ta,

Chris

the online is not switch on yet, tomorrow I think

They probably won't turn the servers on until the release day. You should be able to play the offline modes though right?

No I can't dark knight I feel like crying !

Have you tried playing it when not connected to the internet (turn off wireless / unplug Ethernet cable)?

Seems very strange that even offline mode doesn't work... Maybe try setting the date to tomorrow (could be locked down to only work at all from tmrw onwards!!)

That or it's just faulty. 100 years in the making and people can't even install it lol

Ahh, yes. It's JUST gone to GT life now. So that's nearly 2 hours since the postie came to install it all and wait for it to try and connect to the servers 3 times and then let me in!

I've chosen to disable my internet connection and not install locally and its working fine offline for me

Thanks will try that now

I'm just doing the first licences now.
version update took about 10 minutes. Local install took about 40 minutes (not 20 as it said). It then took about 10 minutes to get to the first proper screen.. at that point I thought I'd done something wrong and exited and re-started it.

As oldmanhouse suggests, the way to stop it taking ages is to turn the internet connection off, otherwise it'll take about 5 minutes to go from each different menu screen while it times out waiting to contact the server

Turn the internet off / unplug the network cable and it won't pause while it tries to find the servers. It works as normal then... it's still a bit slow to load races but probably faster than prologue which was painfully slow sometimes.

Play off-line! :D...Damn, can't fit snow tyres to the Civic SiR-II

damn that top gear track is hard (but looks superb!).

S.O.B.!!!!!!!!! SCREAAAAAAAAAAM !!!! Been waiting 5 years for this game and after all this waiting damn thing does not work. What a massive disappointment. The grin on my son's face (massive xbox 360 fan) this morning when I couldn't get it to work. Screen just froze after update waited ages and nothing. Took kids to school and came back 40 minutes later still nothing. Now its 1:52 pm and still can't get it to do anything. However's to blame... hope you get what's coming to you...Pile of sH.t for your dinner/s. I'm well and truly gutted. SONY + POLYPHONY I WILL NEVER EVER AGAIN STICK UP FOR YOU. EVER. SONY + POLYPHONY = SOPHONY.

HI Thanks for comms. No haven't tried that yet as I can't get anything on screen when I restart manually. I have tried everything I know but can't get it to display anything now. I'm seriously contemplating buying a new ps3 (perhaps that's just what sony want!!;) cunning plan, NICE ONE!!). I'm still using my original ps3 from day of release and has original 60gb hard drive. WOuld the fact that my hard drive is almost full have anything to do with it? Anywayz cheers harmzz. will let you know what happens.

Possible but think you only need min 256mb might be wise to clear some space up, or try offline without been on the network

Are the servers up yet? I've not been able to play a single mp game yet, now and then I get connection to the server could not be established. If they're not on yet then it's an absolute joke, if they are on then wtf is the problem?

ps.. I ensured I had the latest standard PS3 updates patches downloaded and install before putting the game in. then took 2 hours to install, hung for 30 mins on the 133mb download showing 40 seconds left, but i just left it.
