GT5 online services shutting down

Last chance to get your online racing in GT5 in, as on May 31st the servers are getting shut down, after a mere 4 years of operation. If you partake in the Online Event Finale that's running for the remainder of the time you'll be rewarded with some free cars for GT6, so it's something of a bittersweet goodbye.

Dick move by Polyphony to force people to move to GT6. GT5 still has a huge playerbase.

Worst thing about this is the removal of the login bonus (which granted up to 2x exp). The game will go back to become a huge grindfest.

A bit unrelated but what comes on disc differently between GT5 and GT5 XL?
Also, if you have a GT5 save can you use GT5 XL with it?

IIRC, XL edition comes with a few DLCs and is already pre-patched. If you were to use the vanilla GT5 disc, you'd need to spend a couple hours downloading patches. Other than that, it's the same game and saves are compatible.
