Gran Turismo 5 or GTV, call it what you may has recently had its Spec 2.0 update, this has added better content and many enhancements to the table. The new update allows standard cars cockpit viewing now, as well as the game supporting DLC etc.

All standard cars within the game now contains the basic silhouette cockpit view, the update now shows the open-wheel on the standard cars, which is a great addition that should have been there from the beginning.

GTV now supports DLC, this means that you can now visit the PSN store to purchase, thanks to this new update you can now buy new features such as the new Spa Francorchamps track, you can also have a pick of 15 new vehicles, as well as racing gear and a new paint pack. Spunwicked has mentioned that the new track is brilliant, especially the Eau Rouge section of the track, go get it and have a look.

You can now receive new additional content thanks to the Gran Turismo 5 Spec 2.0 update, you can now purchase the 2011 season Nascars via the GT Life car dealerships, and these can be played in arcade mode as well that replaces the 2010 models.

What other improvements will I notice?

You will notice enhanced AI and a new introduction movie, gamers did not particularly like the original movie’s soundtrack, you will also see refined online functionality, time of day options for track settings, replay fast forward/rewind and Logitech G25/G27 support, and endurance race save points.

Now that the Gran Turismo 5 Spec 2.0 update has been released, what can we expect to see in the Spec 3.0 update? This next instalment should be released late 2012, what would you like to see?

Improvements for Spec 3.0 update will be brilliant; we will keep a very close eye on this.
