Problems downloading Gran Turismo 6 update 1.03? Follow these steps


As expected, update 1.03 was released for Gran Turismo 6 on PlayStation 3 today; however, some unexpected issues have arisen, with some users unable to download the update. Over on the Gran Turismo website, a workaround is being offered though it requires some fast fingers. 

Steps to reproduce:

1.When Gran Turismo 6 is launched while connected to PSN, a message will appear on screen informing the users that "the latest update data for this software has been found (Version 1.03)".

2.Once accepted (by pressing the X button while selecting [OK]), a “Please wait...” message will be displayed. After a few seconds, the PlayStation®3 system will emit 3 acoustic signals and restarts automatically.

3.At this point, some users may receive a message stating that the system was not shut down correctly last time. The system will ask then to perform a system file check and then the reboot is completed.

4.Users will be prompted again to download Update 1.03, whether they received the message in step 3 or not.

Procedure to avoid this issue:

To avoid this issue, please accept to download the Update by selecting [OK] within 2 seconds of its appearance on screen when prompted. This will update the game properly.

If you wait longer than 2 seconds, please decline the Update by pressing the Circle button when the message in step 1 is displayed, then select [Back] in the subsequent "Sign-In to PSN" screen. The game will start, quit the game using the PS button while in the [My Home] screen and follow the procedure described above.


In step 3 you may also receive a message “Report this problem to Sony Computer Entertainment?”. You can select either [Yes] or [No] to proceed.

If you do manage to get the update to work, you can expect to find the newly revealed Toyota FT1 Concept coupe available for purchase in the dealership. If you don't want to spend the cash you can earn the car as a prize by obtaining a Bronze award or better in the Seasonal Event at Laguna Seca. The patch also updates the BMW M4 Coupé whiich has been updated with a full interior.
