Gran Turismo 5 for PlayStation 3 Arrives, GT5 PS3 JailBreak WIP

Sponsored Links
209w ago - Today Polyphony Digital's Gran Turismo 5 is making its rounds on the Internet by release group DComics, while PS3 JailBreak users are working on how to get it running without updating the PlayStation 3 console to 3.50 Firmware as required by the title.

The full US release name is Gran.Turismo.5.PS3-DComics and the game weighs in at 19.4GB (20,882,698,502 bytes) in size unpacked for those wondering (packed at 19515.8MB), with the leaked European version coming in at 13.72GB in size.

According to the NFO File, the following important note states: "To play the game you need to spoof your fw as 3.5 with one of the payloads available in net."

There is also now another scene release named Gran.Turismo.5.EUR.JB.PS3-PEMA in which the NFO File states the following: "Spoofed firmware 3.5 required" and under Install Notes: "Unrar files and copy gamedir dir to external harddrive or use some PS3 FTP server. Files must be placed in the GAMEZ folder."

Although there have been a few reports of it working they are unconfirmed thus far, with most currently reporting getting a black screen or error 80028F08 that the data is corrupted when editing the PARAM.SFO file and using various PS3 payloads and Open Managers applications.

The US release version (BCUS-98114) was compiled with PS3 SDK 3.50 while the Euro leaked version (BCES-00569) of the game was compiled with PS3 SDK version 3.30, however, many users believe until a Debug Patch Update surfaces (as opposed to a 403/404 error) PS3 JailBreak users may have to hold off playing it.

As always, we'll update this article when a JailBroken PS3 GT5 fix or work-around arrives.

100% correct. I'm just seeking a work around approach rather than a per game specific patch that will be necessary to play GT5, as we understand it now.

All will come in time, we barely have a usable open SDK, 3-4 months old is this 'hacked' PS3 scene, I expect a lot more to come for sure.

yes and you obviously know if the eboot.bin from the demo can be used in the full retail version to make it playable?

EVERYONE KNOWS IT EXISTS AND IT WORKS ON 3.41!! The point is if it can be used to make the full version playable.
