*Carless* Waaahhh
I will admit that GT5 does sound a lot better with a proper set of head phones. I tried a pair of AKG K702 and the sound improved a huge amount.

But, the same thing happened with Forza Motorsport, and comparing them both on head phones GT5 was still bad.

is there a list somewhere with all the cars in GT5 that don?t sound like complete crap? If there isn?t, someone should make one...

Yeah, but the Enzo sounds like the 458 and the Aventador sounds like a Gallardo (I remember the Enzo sounding like a V12 before, so maybe they messed it up in a patch). :(

I can't imagine the speakers in my TV are all that great. Still, the premium '69 Camaro Z/28 with full engine mods (No supercharger. "All motor, no blower.") and racing exhaust sounds pretty good.

Indy 500

In both A-Spec and B-Spec, I'm ready to do the Indy 500. I'm more eager to do it in A-Spec, so I can win the XJ13. But I don't have any cars capable of keeping up, much less winning. I'm at 3,300,000 credits now. Should I buy the Peugeot 908 at 4,000,000 credits, or should I keep saving and get a Ferrari F1 car for 10,000,000?

GT5 is just one of those games with enough sound to provide feedback. There is no joy in just the sound itself. Even with my 10" subwoofer and 3.1, really disappointing.

My perspective is that the sounds in Gran Turismo are just too real. With the recording method we use, we use a dyno and put the load on, and the sound we produce is just too accurate. I think it would be a good thing to sort of design the sound a little bit, and so that is something I would like to challenge ourselves with in the future. (...)
I think the man speakes the truth, and here's why: he believes that if you put actual recorded sounds into the game, it is the real deal, so technically it must sound as real as it gets. What he is missing is that it doesn't matter where sound samples come from if the end result doesn't sound real. Sound design is mandatory. It is a good example of how far out of the world this man lives.

What doesn't come across is the volume of the sound cars produce. When you have an AMG Merc or a Ferrari go past at WOT, it's not just loud, which it very much is. There is a real volume of sound coming your direction. You feel the explosive force produced and the air sort of getting thicker because of the noise. GT5 is bad at getting that to the player. Not that that's easy.

The Ferrari F1 car cannot compete except for the special Ferrari F1-only events.

Last night, I was working my way through the rally special. The game was loading up SS7, but it never loaded. The bar went all the way across, the music ran out, but the stage never loaded. A bummer, but I figured I could drive it all over and win again. So I shut the PS3 down and restarted. Went into photo mode and took some pictures of my Gallardo. While doing that, the PS3 went BEEP and shut down. Figured it might be a bit hot (ran the European championship in B-Spec again before the rally series), so I let it rest and put a fan on it. Restarted, exported my images so I could move them to a flash drive later and before I could get out, the PS3 shut down hard again. So I turned everything off for the night. Went back this afternoon, and it won't start. It acts like it's about to come on, but then it beeps three times quickly and shuts back off. Can't even eject my GT5 disc.

Now what?

Basically, you take it apart down to the motherboard, heat that up so the solder liquefies, then spread it and re-coat it.

Sounds like a lot of trouble. :|
My other options are:

1) Paying Playstation $200 to "service it" (replace it with another unit), or

2) Buying a new one for $300.

I'll try to fix it myself. Only bought the thing for $125.

You were rather unlucky. The online car dealer had a bunch of the LMS cars in December for half price :(

I did my A-spec 500 in the Nissan R89C. It's actually a decent car, even with stock settings. It's easy to break traction obviously, so you can't go full throttle until you're in 3rd or 4th :lol:
