Polyphony Digital has something special planed if Sebastian Vettel manages to take the Formula One Driver's Championship for the second year in a row. Vettel made history by becoming the youngest driver to ever take the title last year, and if he pulls off a repeat performance, Polyphony says it will release the Red Bull X2010 in game to anyone who logs on to Gran Turismo 5. As anyone who's familiar with the franchise can tell you, the X2010 is ultimate prize in GT5, as vehicle is the award for completing every challenge in the game.

Currently, there are only five races left in the 2011 F1 season, and Vettel has an astounding 124-point lead in the Driver's Championship. He only needs to score one single point in any one of the remaining five races in order to win the title. That means pulling off a 10th-place-or-better finish. Looks like GT5 fans will be enjoying their own X2010 very soon.

In addition, Polyphony has announced a sweeping update for GT5 that includes interior views for all vehicles in the game, reduced load times, the ability to save mid-race and 11 new NASCAR vehicles from the current season. The game's price will also receive a big cut, dropping from $59.99 to $39.99... just as Forza 4 shows up.

      All it needs are new cars, removal of crap econoboxes, new tracks, maybe an F1 car or two, and some model year updates, like the new M5 or something.

      I don't really need a third RB X2010, but I'll take it. I also don't need 11 more stock cars. I would like to see the DLC car pack include current uhh, GT cars. How about all those GT3 cars from Mercedes, McLaren, Ferrari, etc? Or the current SuperGT cars, like the Honda HSV-10? I know a lot of it has to do with licensing rights, but PD should get Sony to leverage their might for this cause.

        I am a huge GT5 fan, but honestly seeing Forza 4 makes me want to get it and play my 360 for the first time in well over a year.

          actually Forza 4 is THE ONLY GAME which would make me buy a 360...that is sad in a way.

      I played the Forza 4 demo, it looked nice but the physics just aren't up to par still compared to GT 5. I just don't feel like I am driving a car in Forza 4 like I do with GT5. So glad they are putting out this update though, needs a new breath of life :) When is it supposed to release?

        the physics are better than GT5's by far...especially with the new tire compound simulator, that NO other game has.

        the 2.0 Update is scheduled for next Tuesday. The DLC will follow shortly after.

      How about an update to weed out the plethora of useless Japanese econo-crap-boxes and million different Civic variants and replace them w/ some exciting sportscars?? GT500, Boss 302, Camaro ZL1, Ferrari 599 GTO, ad infinitum. And make it so you can upgrade rolling stock on all cars. Make the prices realistic. No, instead we get a fantasy car that you can only use in a select few races. Great.

        No need having 1000 cars if there are 50 repeats of several snooze worthy crapboxes. If there is some crackhead collector out there who desires 100 variants of the Honda Civic, several JDM sport cars that differ only in the shade of paint, and premium detail Priuses and Daihatsu at the expense of underwhelmingly detailed standard definition supercars (and very few of them), PD should take a moment to consider that the rest of us want a driving game full of fast exotic fun to drive but impossible to own cars, not a freaking museum on the fantastic underperforming commuter cars of the Japanese Domestic Market.

      Funny how Polyphony recently stated they arent worried about Forza....looks like they are worried to me.

        don't know. they have the far more compelling lineup...no problem with people buying a 360 additional to their ps3...... oops...forgot this is an american site...i spoke for the rest of the world ;o)

      Just in time for Forza 4's release. Coincidence or dick move? Well at least they're closer to finishing the game now.

      Wow that's awesome, I better check it out...... but my PS3 is still loading....... Loading...... Loading........ I have both systems and track my car - Forza has better physics and tire feel than GT by far. Also better AI. I am still rooting for GT since it's the patriarch of modern racing sim, but Polyphony better get their acts together.

        Better physics? ya right. If your in a online race and your not using a leader board car, your not going to win. In GT5 pretty much any car can be competitive when tuned right, that can't be said for Forza 3. Now Forza 4 could be very different....can't wait to find out.

          that's why we boot people who try to use leaderboard cars.

        Better AI? I've played a lot of both and really like both for different reason, but feel that the AI in Forza (3) is flat out dumb and frustration. When I am side by side with an AI, with a bit of an edge, I have the inside line of the AI, but it insists that is the only line so it just hits me, at which point at take so much damage I cannot possibly win the race. I'm sorry, Forza really is a great game and I love competition cause really, we car guys can't get enough racing games, but neither are perfect. If only we could have a combination of the two. One can dream...

      I'd much prefer some DLC of cars than a freebie. Oh well if this does happen I guess I'll have to find my copy of Gt5 and pop it in my Ps3. Hopefully I won't have a allergy attack from all the dust on it.

        Nice, It works in my PS3? .... because otherwise I don't see the point.

      releasing this now isn't going to change the fact that 80% of the cars are from GT4 or earlier. Only way this will effect Forza would be if along w/ the interior views they remade their models. Unlikely... I would not want to know what the download size is for this. I'm guessing... 4gb?? Anyways Forza has a strong group just like GT. GT's not going to sway any buyers now. A little late for that.
