    This may sound bad, but when I saw this my first thought was “There’s a Gran Turismo 6?”

    I got a PS3 pretty late and bought a GT5 XL edition with the console. Then I found out most of the DLC codes with the game didn’t work because Sony removed them. The cars are already in the game I just need a 100kb file to unlock them. Guess they didn’t want people playing GT5 when GT6 is released.

    Now they got GTS and no longer want people playing GT6.
