With various retail dates and insider info, it now seems apparent that Gran Turismo 5 will make it before mid-December.

There have also been a few leaked videos over the past few days, proving that GT5 is "out there." We have no idea what's legitimate and what's not, and we're not willing to guess; the official date is all that matters to us. Still, one particular video should be of interest to racing fanatics: it shows off the Trophy list for GT5, which sorta proves two things- 1. it looks real so GT5 should exist somewhere, and 2. Platinum-ing this bad boy is gonna be tough.

That Gold Standard trophy, where you have to land a Gold Trophy in every race event, license test and special event ought to be a challenge. Then there are the A-Spec and B-Spec levels (you need to reach Level 40 for each to nab the corresponding trophies), and of course, the different tiers- Extreme, Expert, Professional, Amateur, and Beginner. And if that S license is as impossible to master as it has been in past GTs…

I am in love.

The 1000 car bronze is by far one of my favorite trophies ever.

Rushing to a retail outlet to buy it, rushing back home, unpacking the game, flipping quickly through the manual and finally inserting the disc in my PS3 and firing up the game….

THAT is the real trophy for me

…And still no date. I'm getting a little pissed now. Delays are understandable, but for the love of god just tell me when i can buy the damn game already.

Theres a gameplay video on Kotaku. Its ok if you like watching an off-screen shot of an idiot who doesnt know how to drive a miata.

And this is one of those games that I will just let the trophies come as I play. I have no desire to get frustrated over getting that S Class license. Still that would be something to brag about…

LOL! it's something to brag about for the 100 people in the world with enough talent to get it and the other 10,000 who are obsessive enough to retry an unlimited number of times until they get it.

I'll be one of those who takes the game and trophies as they come and won't be worrying about the Platinum as I suspect it will be out of reach for all but a small fraction of one percent of players.

Sony is releasing a new official Bluetooth. It's 30% smaller & it's shinny. Set to release later this month. I'll be picking that up for some online GT5 fun!

Trophy hunters be warned, GT5 Platinum is impossible. I'd say about 300Hours of gameplay at least to get the Plat, i'm guessing. WOW
AC2 and Burnout Paradise took about a week to Plat. LOL

SvenMD

@Maxpontiac – some of us don't have 300 hrs PER GAME to Platinum a game. If it was THAT impossible to plat games, then I wouldn't even try for trophies like I do now….but since there are games that you can plat in 2 playthroughs I will spend a little extra time on a game to do it.

Resistance 2 is a fine example of a ridiculous platinum. Online trophies are SH!T!

daus26

Not so much trophy hunters beware, but to those who are new to racing simulators or GT. Granted I haven't played the game yet, but for every GT I've played, I've come to adapt it and so far perfecting every events and licenses doesn't seem impossible at all, and I know for sure there are a lot of others out there.

The trophies on this game is spot on so far. It relies on elite skills and not so much on luck or any of those lame online trophies. If you have the skills, it certainly wouldn't take 300 hours or even close to it. It's do or never.

Basically, I'm saying it's either you have the skills or you don't. If you don't have the skills, you can play 10,000 hours and still won't get it. To get it, it'll take as long as how fast you can master the game's physics.

On a side note
Is anyone who has a fat model having trouble since the latest update?? I'm getting the whole overheating notice but my system is cold. A firmware error is the only thing I can think of, that or karma for backing out of my deal with World.

Hmm…. if your heatsink/fan (HSF) wasn't running properly your system could overheat and still feel cool since the HSF wasn't removing any heat. But if you had that big of a problem, I don't think it would take more than a second or two to overheat and shut down.

main_event05

any suggestions? I'm trying to do everything I can before I send it in for service. I'm even tempted to give Worlds $25 to make amends for what happened?

TheHighlander

If your system stays on long enough to actually perform a firmware update you could try downloading the latest update to a USB stick and then booting the system into the service menu. Once there, select the option to upgrade the firmware and then put the USB stick into the USB port. It'll install, and if there was some weird glitch in the firmware load it will correct it.

That said, because the firmware is encrypted I don't actually think it would complete the update if there was any kind of corruption because if there was, the encryption wouldn't work right, and the process would abort.

It really sounds like you might have to send it in for service.

Does the fan come on at all? If so, but it's not kicking into high gear to remove the heat, you might have a heat sink problem. The other possible problem is a fault in the sensor that reads the system temperature. But both of those are things that need a service facility. Since your system is a phat, if it is one of the original 20 or 60 GB systems or 80GB systems with BC built in, I would personally recommend a Sony service instead of a third party simply because those systems are rare and special. I have one of them, as does my wife, and if one of them fails, Sony is getting a call that day.

that's what my next step was gonna be. And the fans are all working fine. The intakes are working and so is the exhaust Does it make any difference that it doesn't overheat in safe mode??
