it's the same way the wii, ps3 move, xbox camera bs all will never work, there is no physical feed back. even if a wheel has feed back there is none of the bumps and g forces to tell your brain what to do. even the best multi million dollar sims have that problem.

^ that's true, but you can attach a Buttkicker to the seat for road vibration and such.

AFAIK GT5 has never had an official release date, sure loads of over-enthusiastic jurno's have speculated on release dates and got it badly wrong, but there's never been an actual release date from PD.

I love the inexpensive cars in GT. If they don't have an NA miata i will be pissed. That has been my first purchase on every GT game. They need to do more with the lower priced cars. GT2 was the best in that segment. Shitty 90's cars FTW.

fanatec also has the only realistic peddles i have seen


and i'm sorry to say it but any xbox or ps3 racing game you have sucks with a wheel, i have never played a game with a wheel i liked. rather play forza and GT with a controller
g27 with reverse mounted pedals in a cockpit is way better than this "porsche racing wheel" by fanatec.

I want the used car market in GT5. I spent 90% of my time buying those shitty used cars and fixing them up. Or I would browse the lot every time a new shipment came in to look for rare cars, or rare colors. Made the game much more fun. If they don't have that I will be a bit pissed. I've heard rumor of black beauties in the game, so I suppose that would mean used car market or something like it, since that is where you got them in previous games. My favorite car of all time in GT was my black 787B.

Except for the elite Fanatec wheels, but they don't work with my xbox. I have two of them now. Winner winner chicken dinner.

no, that wheel is definitely not as good as a G27. It just is endorsed by ******* Porsche. Who wants the ******* Porsche insignia on their wheel? That's gay.

Me too, but it was more like 3 or 4 years ago for me, lol. I took up CoD in the meanwhile.

They always had fun **** like old volvo wagons and r30 skylines that were a blast. I had an odd colored griffith and a funky tealish miata too. The only thing i hated is that game acted like if your miata had more than 200 hp it was a fearsome burn out monster. One of my favorite cars was the c spec miata and the bp trueno race car.

#1: porsche logo on a videogame steering wheel = gay. If you're not driving a porsche 24/7 in a racing game, it makes you look foolish/toolish/gay in my eyes.

#2: difference between G25/G27: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rx8mZKspLj4

Congrats! I wouldn't have time to play it now anyway due to work, graduate school, my one year old son, and installing the slew of parts I received this month.
