Multi-Monitor Support Comes to Gran Turismo 6 in Update 1.05

Gran Turismo 6 continues a steady stream of updates with their latest update, 1.05, going live today.  The most significant feature in Update 1.05 is the implementation of multi-monitor compatibility.  Three screens are always better than one.  Would not be surprised to see triple screens coming to the latest iteration of GT Academy later this year.

Other updates include additional features in the Open Lobby, Car Search feature added to the Cars section of My Home (should help sorting through the massive catalog), sale of racing gear in individual colors, additional adjustments, including brake balance, to the karts and increments of front-to-rear torque split has been changed from 5 to 1 for all cars.

You can view Update 1.05 in its entirety below:
