[Update: The PlayStation Blog has detailed the game updates, and now we see the reason for the size of the patch -- it adds a ton to the game. Check out the details here.]

There's nothing like popping on your game system, throwing in your favorite game and then waiting. Waiting. F*cking waiting. Just keep telling yourself that this particular patch is worth the wait. It is. 

With that out of the way, know that there's a 608mb patch for Gran Turismo 5 today. While I hate waiting, there seems to be some good stuff in this big bundle. NeoGAF has a thread on this patch 1.05 where they list some of what appears to have been fixed/changed in the update. Here's some of the highlights:

  • Online collector car dealerships
  • Online seasonal events
  • save backup/copy
  • totally HUDless racing
  • offline damage
  • rewinding in replay mode
  • custom music for menus

Very nice. I almost feel bad for complaining about the wait. Even more reports are coming in about some of the changes. I'm going to dig into this update. We'll update you when we hear more of what has been changed.
