The lights are on
And you'll be able to download it on November 27. Keep in mind, this is the update's first release date. If the update follows the same release strategy as Gran Turismo 5, it will likely be delayed several times, and then will vanish for a year before being announced and delayed again. If it follows this path, I'm going to guess that its actual release date will be in 2014.
Kazunori Yamauchi tells Eurogamer that Gran Turismo 5 is like a "living creature, dynamically growing as we speak," and that the update will "refine the usability of the game to make it a better experience." This includes weight and power restrictions for online play. Hopefully, the update will also address the online traffic congestion problems that are affecting both online and single player. Since the game's design integrates online functionality into all aspects of the game, single player is being affected. Yamauchi says that they are experiencing more connections than they thought they would. Until they can get this aspect of the game under control, simply disconnect from PSN while playing single player.

The problems sound kind of bad. Not too bad though. Stop having problems in games.
Yeah, the online races can be really buggy but I haven't had any problems with single player. The patch is going to be ready tomorrow? Too good to be true, it'll come out "early December."
Even if it gets delayed a lot, at least they're already working on it.
ok cool but im half finished with the game and the only problem i ran into is it being slow at times.
And this game has been in development for how long? Seriously, I think this is a form of laziness on Polyphony if NFS:HP is more critically acclaimed.
the only mistake i see is in anticipating only half a million connections to their server at any given time. they should've known that this game would be an international deal.
You would think a game like Grand Turismo would not have these problems.
wow they might need a big patch to fix this... hopefully not the GBs area...
This is surprising to say the least. After how many years they've worked on this, I would have thought that problems like these wouldn't be an issue.
It's too realistic too handle.
im sorry gt5 best racing game ive ever played should have recieved no less than 9.5
I love the screenshot used for this game in most articles... I think it does a great job of encapsulating the wow-factor and breath of the title... or maybe I just read into things too much.
Why not fix the games completely before releasing it? Is that to much to ask?
