November 20, 2010 // 10:09 am - 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.

about as long as that demo has been (late august-early september), its just they have not gotten into the right hands to be ripped and attempted yet.

Sheeks is a noob.. he hasn't been into the scene long enough to understand that once hackers are in.. they are IN. Just because they ran into a roadblock does not mean its done with.. this stuff takes time as always. GT5 will be playable on a JB ps3... the question is "when".

It's over? It hasn't even started yet

Get a grip fella. Be patient and you'll see what the near future unfolds.

There will be no more new games working on the ps3 with 3.5 and above. It ain't going to happen, the JB was good while it lasted but i'm afraid all we have to look forward to is game manger revisions, useless emulators and fake videos of 3.5 being hacked.

Just admit it guys, it's over we have been defeated at the first hurdle.

No, There isn't. Only Prologue does, and, now, as per the latest submission in the list, there's a demo version which does.

Saved $10 a week the last few weeks and bought the game myself for my 2nd unmodded ps3. Its well worth it, once we get this running i'll copy to my modded PS3 and race against myself

Waiting for a REVERSE ENGINEERED version of X3 Max's 3.50 Jailbreak...

I still think 3.50 Jailbreak is fake however until something shows/tells me otherwise.
