It seems that it’s not just the standard version of Gran Turismo 5 that has suffered from launch glitches because fans that went the extra mile to buy the GT5 Signature edition are also having problems. The worst thing is it’s with the exclusive content they were supposed to receive such as exclusive cars showing as invalid.
Users have been mobbing the Playstation Forums today complaining that their Signature Edition of GT5 is giving an ‘invalid’ notification when trying to retrieve the five collector’s edition cars. Understandably they are a bit miffed with having such trouble after splashing out £150 for the game.
Sony has yet to comment on the problems with the Signature edition, unlike the loading and slow play glitches that have marred the launch. A patch is due to be released on Saturday 27th November for the loading problems but no known update for Signature owners yet.
Signature owners can at least enjoy the designer metallic case, Branded Mercedes SLS model, GT5 embossed wallet and video content whilst waiting for an update. They can also subtlety show off to their mates with a branded key ring, coffee table book and even an exclusive drivers guide. It’s still got to be pretty annoying not being able to use the exclusive cars, designs and performance updates.
Have you had any trouble with either GT5 or the Signature edition?
