The community has been crying out for it since WRC3 was released some six months ago, Milestone has finally answered your prayers and released a long-awaited patch that addresses many issues, bringing the game up to version 1.01. The PS3 patch was released earlier this month, but now the PC and Xbox 360 versions have been brought up to date as of today. 

You have to wonder why it took Milestone half a year to release such an incremental update, but better late than never, right? Then again, it may come as a disappointment that, while it does fix a host of bugs and refines the force feedback on Logitech wheels, the belated patch doesn't add any significant updates to the core game. Sadly, it doesn't unlock every car for the WRC Experience and online multiplayer either, despite the frequently requests from fans.    

Here's the official changelog of bug fixes for each version:

Those tyres on the Lotus are really not suited to the extremely wet track, lol.

Surely SMS can kit it out with some wet weather rubber?

I'll look forward to it and for once I'm not bothered wether its DLC or not because in terms of racing sims, Assetto Corsa is definitely more friendly on your pocket - free multiplayer etc. I hope that doesn't change when it leaves early access.

Its nice to see that they're not using lens flare, it really annoys me when its used in cockpit view because cockpit view is often for a more realistic driving experience yet it can be ruined by lens flare which is an effect only present on lenses (unsurprisingly). *ehem* Next Car Game *ehem*.

Yes this certainly has huge potential and mixing bikes with cars could be a good thing in terms of investment. Bike games have often been a mixed bag in terms of reception, so perhaps we'll see some bikes in GT7 and then if that works out, a full blown Tourist Trophy 2 further down the line.

I'm not going to get my hopes up because there have been too many rumors for far to long.  But after GT6 the only thing that would make me buy another GT title would be the addition of bikes (and a good selection of those at that).

In regards to Tourist Trophy, that game still holds up today.   Not perfect (bikes a tad to floatly) but over all it gave me the closest sense of how it feels to...
