Gran Turismo 5 anyone?

Has any one played this yet? It's such a unique experience to race other people on the planet. I love it!

Then I saw this -a wireless Porsche Steering Wheel:

Where are the Porsches??

The game is great, have not tried playing on-line. Unfortunately no Porsches in this version. The Porsche wheel looks great. But $350?! Maybe, have to think about it.

Love GT4. Still play it when I feel the need to make a run around the Nürburgring.

GT4 had the RUF Porsches. Did they not include them in GT5?

May have to talk the wife into buying me a PS3 for my birthday.

This is just the prologue version with ~50 cars. It's kinda a demo of what's to come. The full version will certainly have more cars to choose from.

I actually was just playing GT4 the last two nights. I need to get the Logitech wheel though...

Ha, it's Porsche licensed. What'd you expect?

You'd be surprised how much better Gran Turismo is with wheel and pedals. That's why I would actually consider that Porsche steering wheel. Plus the features are pretty impressive.
  • supports wireless USB technology
  • force feedback from 3 motors
  • cordless pedals
  • automotive grade leather covering
  • key-shaped 1GB flash drive for storing settings
  • compatible with PS3 and PCs

i have the new logitech gt wheel with the red click wheel for changing settings on the fly. i think its worth the 150 bucks. especially when the full version comes out.
