GT5 Updated To Version 1.10

Update 1.10 for GT5 is now live, bringing with it a list of tweaks as long as your arm. They are as follows:

* Please update the PS3 system software to 3.65 before you update the game.


[Major Changes and New Features]
– Racing Gear Item
A new racing gear category consisting of the racing helmet and racing suit has been implemented. You can use these for yourself as the A-Spec driver or any of the “My Drivers” in B spec.
There are many variations to the racing gear, and in addition to several sets being given out as presents when you start GT Mode, you can also gain new ones when you win in online events. So you can now take a photo of your driver wearing your favourite gear, and use that custom photo for your driver profile.
For details, refer to “Racing Gear” under Top Menu – [Manual] – [GT Mode].

– Parts purchases through the settings screen
In the settings screen, parts you have not yet purchased will now have a shopping cart icon appear next to them. You can now purchase these parts on the spot. Purchased parts will immediately be equipped on your car.
For details, refer to Top Menu – [Manual] – [GT Life] – [Settings]

– Improved Opponent AI Algorithm
The search range of opponent AI has been expanded, and their intelligence algorithm has been improved.

– Interrupting and resuming championship races
In championship races of A-Spec and B-Spec within [GT Life], there is now an interrupt button in the quick menu which appears after completing individual races.
If the interrupt button is pressed, the event will be interrupted and your record up to that point will be saved, and the game will end. The next time you start the game, you can continue the championship race from where you left off.

– Additional music track
After playback of the ending movie (*short version), “Day To Live/daiki kasho” will be added as a bonus music track. 

[Other Changes]
– You can now check the physical endurance of drivers that are resting in the B-Spec endurance races.
– You can now sort the garage by [Last Car Driven] – In [Weight Adjustment] of [Settings], you can now see changes in the front to rear weight balance when the ballast position is changed.
– Your A spec driver is now displayed in the profile screen.
– In the pit menu of B-Spec, the time limit for being able to direct pit work has been changed from reaching “0” in the count down, to “Until the car comes to a complete stop”.
– The sorting order of the music album has been improved.
– When selecting a track created in course maker from the course album of Arcade Mode or GT Mode, you can now run single races with up to 16 cars. (Excluding some tracks such as those made before the update, and dirt tracks.)
– It is now possible to take 3D photographs even without connecting a 3D compatible TV.
– It is now possible to export 3D photographs to [Photo] on the XMB™. 

[Correction of Known Issues]
– We have corrected an issue where the maximum speed set in the transmission settings of the setting menu differed from the actual top speed of the car. This will affect cars equipped with the relevant transmission tuning part, and almost all racing cars. Cars for which each gear ratio was adjusted manually with a full customised transmission in versions 1.07 and earlier will not be affected. 
– An issue with the increase and decrease of the online log-on bonus has been corrected.
– An issue where the player’s car and opponent’s cars braked at the wrong timings in the pit lane during B-Spec has been corrected.
– A problem where racing sound effects were turned off after changing settings in the quick menu has been corrected.
– An issue has been corrected.where the dirtiness of the oil was not affected when purchasing a used car with high mileage. 
– An issue where some of the driver gear colours had changed after the 1.06 update has been corrected.
– An issue in the championships of GT Life where opponent cars kept using the same tyres in the second race and onwards has been corrected.
– An issue where the menu BGM was being played back during remote racing rather than the race BGM has been corrected.
– An issue of the program freezing when opening a garage containing nearly the maximum number of cars has been corrected.

[To Check Your Current Version]
To check the version of your software, press the “Manual” button at the bottom of the main menu screen. The version number will be located on the upper left of the index page in this manual.

If the number starts with “Ver. 1.10”, you are playing the latest version of the game.

Thanks, JamboGT



  1. Really like being able to buy parts and tyres from the setup menu, no more exiting an online lobby to buy new tyres!

  2. Really need to buy this again along with other stuff like Littlebigplanet 2 and Yakuza 4, Really excited for the new save stuff would be handy for long…….. races

  3. The championship interruption was a much needed addition, unfortunately too late for me as I’ve passed it on to my brother. One thing they haven’t fixed is the custom music I had set kept going back to the game soundtrack without me changing the setting

    • If that was on online then there is a reason for that, custom soundtracks only work online when chat is disabled. Don’t ask me why, must be some sort of audio bandwidth issue.

      • i imagine its a copyright issue if youre ‘broadcasting’ your own music perhaps? i.e. over your headset.

      • It is indeed a copyright issue as described by Mr black. This change would happen to me without even going online. I’d set my bgm to custom, next time I turned it on, it would’ve reverted back to game soundtrack (which is awful musak). It didn’t happen every time, but it happened at least 8-1030 times, enough to be irritating

  4. Glad to see you can buy parts through the settings screen and being able save after a race so you don’t have to do the full championship in one go.

  5. woohoo mid race saving. i might actually be able to complete the a spec endurance races now.

    • There is no mid race saving yet, only mis championship saving. Sorry.

      • *mid

      • This is the only thing that is stopping me playing really now, I don’t have the motivation to race for hours and hours around one track.

      • Mid championship is of use to one race for me, the Formula GT championship, the rest are just endurance races.

      • will start playing gt5 again when they put in mid race saves for endurance races.

  6. Glad they’ve been listening to the community :) a much needed update. Now, need some DLC ;)

  7. I dare say that this GT is just a bit too much for me, you really have to put alot of time into this game to get anything out of it personally. I tried and gave up. Its good to hear they are still updating the game with lots of new additions though

  8. Mind boggling update! :P + I got to a point in GT5 that it just got to hard for me now :-( I loved the game tho.

  9. Great that they are updating and so BUT this is the best selling ps3 exklusive game and yet they have not released a DLC. Why????Some new cars would be cool or some new tracks.

  10. That top speed gear ratio setting will take some getting used to, as it’s always been a case of set it to 192 and the car flatlines at 176’ish as an example…it’ll take time to trust it lol. Superb addition being able to buy parts from an online lobby settings menu…huge time saver!!
