I got prizes that earned from the GT Academy 2012 event from last year. I remember redeeming one of the cars but I put the rest to the side and forgot about them. Now I want to redeem them and apparently I'm having some trouble with the "gifts". I tried selecting each and and tried to add them to my "items" list but nothing happens. The gifts should still be valid because, according to gran-turismo.com, they should still be valid until the 25th of January 2013.
-Thank You for taking this time for reading about my problem,
Sorry I can't help, but "I share your pain" if that helps any.
Ok something weard just happond. I thought I lost the coupon my girl sent me just before The service cut out. Ok just now I used her acc and sent my self that coupon once again and not only did the old one pop up but more than one. An all the color chips as well. I should only be seeing 2 car coupons and 8 color chips. What I got was 10 things. one more coupon and color chip. Weard!! but I'll taking it.
So it looks as if the online service it really back up now I'll try an old GTA 2012 coupon. Ok I have opened it and yep it works.
The thing is I've tried to redeem the rest of my cars on my US version of GT5 since last month and despite closing day for Academy data or not, it's still supposed to be redeemable until today (the 25th).
The funny thing is, it wasn't just the U.S. version I did GT Academy 2012 for. I also did the Japanese regional version of the game ( I also own a Japanese market version of GT5 as well as the American one) and all the cars I earned for the GT Academy 2012 on my JPN account I was able to redeem just last month.
Even though it's past the deadline, I'll still answer.
Actually I've running them one at a time. My own internet is too slow but my neighbor actually let me use his wireless internet.
I've been starting to think recently that PD only cares about fixes problems for their home market.
