the DLC was released in Japan only. I downloaded them and they don't work with my US version of the game even though it installs and is in English on Game Data folder. Sigh. I say oh well... not like i was going to use them anyways since i have my 2010 Camaro at nearly 700hp and going 203mph lol.
From what I read on N4G last week, it ended up being only on the Japanese PS Store, and as you can imagine lots of people were upset over Sony misleading people in not specifying that in their initial announcement.
i've been checking the store every day since christmas, and no free cars are to be found. i was looking forward to the jag that i need to use for a race or two. is there a code that we are supposed to enter to get the cars?
