Ferrari GT Online, Will it ever come?

It said directly in the description the next update would include online. The game came out in December 08' and several updates followed with no online game play yet. Has anyone heard anything in regards too the addition of an online mode to the game.

I beat the game and would really like another challenge, it's a really fun game.

Even if an online update came out, it would probably only be for local wifi.

Local Wi-Fi's possible. The reason online isn't is because everybody has different internet speeds. For example, I take the lead (I have fast internet). To you, it looks like I'm still behind you as you cross the finish line (you have slow internet). See the problem?

The difference in internet speed shouldn't be that large of a problem, other games on the iphone/ipod touch managed to pull off online without much of a problem. I mean I used to play Mario Kart on the DS all the time online without any issues what so ever.

Agree with you .Ever played online games on PC?. Counter strike for example. There is lag in online game but not so much that it makes it unplayable. Morever i play armagrddon squadron online in swedish servers. I only get lag but i still can play.

Currently Playing: N.O.V.A, Skater Nation, 33rd Division, 7 Cities, Karnival.
Looking Forward to: GTA: Chinatown Wars, Ravensword (update), 1112 ep 02 and yeah the hangover on 1st

Everyone has always had different online speeds, doesn't stop consoles and pc racing games. Unless they are on about using your mobile phone provider to use their wap or something.
