I Have an Issue Regarding GT Academy 2012 Prizes.

9 replies 457 views Edited Jan 19, 2013

Hello everybody,

 

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,

 Koushiro_Izumi

The "Notwork" problems that PD / Sony are experiencing currently , is preventing any items form being received.

 

Maybe when and if they get around to fixing their Notwork ( in their own sweet time), this issue may be resolved. Hopefully for you, it is before the 25th.........

Storing things beyond about a month in the Gifts has been found to be a bad idea. I learned the hard way too, but my lesson was somewhat better than yours. At least all I lost was paint. I have 17 paints in my gifts inbos I can neither receive or delete... Oh, well.

Sorry I can't help, but "I share your pain" if that helps any.

Update: I just ran the latest Seasonal Events out of Boredom while I wait for things to get repaired better. After I ran all 5 Races (4 Gold, 1 Silver), I saved, Backed up , and restarted the game. The item from 3 days ago finally received. That's a marked improvement.........

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 hope those of you that have GT Academy coupons or tickets, have opened them as I have had to.

 

For to reasons: one so I will not lose any cars that worked so hard  on Closing day for the Academy data and for the othere I hit my item limit wall!  (Sorry for the fuzzy photos).

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.

I must ask have you been running both systems for you home on the same DSL or what ever line? Meaning the same IP Address.

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.
