231w 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.

i still think the UK PROMO copies are a better bet.

Could just make a brief site news like "Speculation: GT5 Best Buy demo disk may allow GT5 to be played. Dev's are interested in looking into this, but the 'leaked' image has yet to make its way to the main channels."

I'm sure some Best Buy employee or the original poster would be interested in helping out.

As for this, probably better left anonymous, wouldn't want to hear about some subpoena for some mass private that could be lurking in our forums... and ps3news actually having it on file.

just curious... does Best Buy receive their demo's on disc to play on a kiosk ps3?

or do they receive the kiosk ps3 with gt5 already on it?

At the moment there is no way of knowing who the submitter was though... of course we could add a field that automatically includes the Submitter's UserName on the Forum, but that wouldn't help with past submissions unless they specifically credited themselves in the Notes section. For that entry it says "Mark" although as you can guess that doesn't help much.

CJPC or who ever manages the PS3 Jailbreak compatibility list should contact the 'tester'... otherwise... wasn't there a PSN demo for GT5? (not prologue)

Most likely when the x3Max 3.50 jailbreak gets reversed/leaked and ported to other devices, then we can all jump up to v3.50 and GT5 should work without any issues.
