There’s very little happening in the way of gaming news right now, what with everyone being drunk, hungover, or too stuffed with turkey to type, so I guess I’ll touch on smaller stories I’ve overlooked. Stories like the arrival of the latest update for Polyphony’s lovely Gran Turismo Sport, which brings some proper single-player content to bolster the meagre offering available at launch.

Patch 1.10 is the answer for those of you who yearn for more of the classic Gran Turismo experience, thanks to a selection of race series’ based on those from the earlier games. You’ve got your Sunday Cup, your MR Challenge, your Clubman Cup, and many more – race events which have eaten countless hours over the years. This sort of thing is a franchise staple, and has been sorely missed.

The first mentor video has been released too, staring Lewis Hamilton. Here’s a teaser to get you in the mood, via the official PlayStation blog.

Elsewhere, 12 new cars have been added to the roster. It’s a nicely varied selection, and adds a new manufacturer too, Austrian speed-machine creator KTM. Here’s that list in full:

  • Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible (C3)
  • Chris Holstrom Concepts 1967 Chevy Nova
  • Ferrari Enzo Ferrari
  • Ferrari F40
  • Ford F-150 SVT Raptor
  • KTM X-BOW R
  • Lamborghini Countach LP400
  • Mazda RX-7 Spirit R Type A (FD)
  • Nissan Skyline GT-R V・spec II (R32)
  • Nissan Skyline GT-R V・spec II Nür (R34)
  • Suzuki Swift Sport
  • Volkswagen Samba Bus Type 2 (T1)

It feels like most of what I’m writing about at the moment is patches, release dates, and open beta announcements. Hopefully there will be some excitement in the gaming industry soon, so we can sharpen our pencils and get the new year started.
