Fixed! The Date and Time Settings Are Not Set Correctly for Gran Turismo 5 & GT5 Prologue

This ERROR also occurs in Gran Turismo (GT5) and the fix remains the same as it is with the Prologue


Gran Turismo 5 Prologue is finally here with great fanfare after an 18 month for most of us for this much anticipated release -- even if it is just a smaller release of GT5 Prologue. While we still wait for the full version, we can at least have a little fun with the version of Gran Turismo. While I just received my GT5 from Amazon.com, I am hopeful, the full version will be here for us next year.

Gran Turismo 5 Prologue - the date and time settings are not set correctly
Before I got started with my new game -- when I put my copy of Gran Turismo 5 Prologue into my Playstation 3 (PS3), I was greeted with an odd error on my console and GT5:
The date and time are not set correctly. Please check date and time settings
I was a little confused as to how it would be possible. Thinking the time was messed up on my Playstation 3 by hitting the PS Button, exiting the game and then going to Settings --> Date and time settings. Interesting, the time was set correctly, but Gran Turismo 5 still had the error.

I then went back into the game and again was greeted with the error:
The date and time are not set correctly. Please check date and time settings
After some checking, I figured out what the problem was. Gran Tursimo 5 Prologue requires that your PS3 gets it's date and time from the Internet. If your PS3 is not set to do this, then you will receive this error in GT5. Frustrating!

How do you fix it? Easy, just go to your Playstation's main menu by clicking on the PS button. Then browse to Settings. Next to Date and Time Settings. Then Date and Time. Now select 'Set via Internet', click 'ok' and then your date is set.

Now go back into your Gran Turismo 5 Prologue game and you will no longer get the error. Additionally, you will now see the Gran Turismo calendar appear on the left side of your screen with the date of April 4th, 2008.

Who knows why the folks at Polyphony Digital required this setting as it does cause some frustration. At least you know how to fix it. If this fix worked for you, please let me know below with a comment!
