Various reports are coming in about Gran Turismo 5's unique "phone home" approach to various game modes, even single player games.

Players are reporting extreme lag between menu transitions, sometimes taking up to ten minutes before players can get from an end-of-game screen back to the GT5 home screen.

Part of the problem, according to Sony, is that the game is experiencing record levels of network traffic (wow, the biggest PS3 release of the year and you didn't see that coming? Wow. Just wow) and this is stuffing up the single player modes (that still need to talk to online servers to update your Home Profile and time challenge scores).

Sony is looking into the problem. Perhaps they need to invest in a couple more Pentium IIs to use as game servers and stick 'em online on something a little quicker than a 1200/75 Baud Acoustic Modem.
