You Really Want Those Updates, Trust Me
on 16 June 2015
Take advantage of the online seasonal events whilst they are there. Logging on daily will build up a win bonus of up to double your race winnings, the combination of the two mean a lot of credits can be earned in a short space of time. You will need to download the updates first though and it took me hours to do. The updates will add cars tracks and B Spec game mode as well as patch some problems. Expect more updates with awesome cars and events for the time being. There will come a day when this is no longer supported, like GT5.
I wish i had known beforehand that I didn't have to do all of the updates at once. The suggested method is to download updates 1-7, let update 7 finish "installing" then hit circle button to cancel the download of update 8. Start the game and the game will unpack the downloads and integrate them. Quit the game and then download update 8, let it install, cancel download 9, start the game, let it unpack, quit game and repeat until all the updates are finished. Doing all 18 that were waiting for me took I don't know how long: i started at 7pm and went to bed at 1am with the gaming having only unpacked about 25% of the updates.
The game itself is an upgrade to GT5 however i have noticed a few graphical glitches here and there. Having said that, there are moments where the graphics are brilliant, the paint work on the GT Vision Lexus is stunning, the silver stripes change colour.
I use a Logitech Driving Force Pro, which was the wheel made for GT4 on the PS2. I did experience some unusual wheel behaviour in two player split screen arcade mode against a friend who was using a standard controller. I was having far too much fun to care at the time (and I'm so tempted to get a G27 now...)
My top tip for a 60k credits car that will do well on sports tyres and pretty much monster any event it's eligible for under 600PP is the Tommy Kaira ZZii (you can turn down the engine output to lower Perfomance Points). Before you drive a car for the very first time, changing the oil will give a small percentage power boost.
