Maybe you need to update to the newest version. 2.05.

GT5 needs to be updated... is what the above poster is referring to. Not the PS3 itself.

If GT5 does need updating, I'm suprised it's not telling you that.

EDIT:

Taken from the 2.05 notes:

To Check Your Current version...

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. 2.05", you are playing the latest version of the game.

It not, please press the PS button and quit the game. The game will be updated automatically when you restart it with your PS3 system connected to the internet.

Race how you expect to be raced.

Which version of GT5 are u referring to...Prologue or the or the full game - which was released in November of 2010? The servers for GT5 Prologue were taken down months ago, which means u can no longer play Prologue online. Hope this helps.

That's not possible. GT5 is not at version 3.0 yet.

Rojovo might be on to something though. Do you have GT5 Prologue?

I moused over rhodes' username, which shows his threads...apparently he posted two threads regarding the same issue and the word prologue is included in the title of one of the threads, which is what brought his issue to my attention. So...I'm thinking that is the problem he's dealing with.

How do you update to the 2.05 update, if your internet service isn't fast enough for the PS3 ? I have been downloading my updates through my home computer, onto a memory stick, but I can't find any way to do it with the GT5 updates !!

You should be able to do it through a proxie, but far be it from me to explain how it is done.

You need the URLs of the updates, which you seem to have figured out, and you need to set up the proxie through the PC.

If you search this forum for "update" and "proxie", in the GT sub-forum, then you should find a couple of posts that explain how others did it to handle corrupted update files.

A simpler way may be to just take your console to another site (of a relative, friend, school, work) and update there.
