I absolutly hated consoles, but I bought a PS3 at the start of the school year for my apartment. At first I regretted it, but I installed Playstation Media Server on my computer, started playing NHL 11 online with a friend of mine and now I am so happy I bought the PS3 over a HTPC.

Now I know its not the greatest reason, I dont own GT5 nor do I play many racing games or console games in general, but this thing was great for me for all the little apps (Netflix, NHL Gamecenter and such). So if you are into those kind of things I would definetly recommend it!

to tell you the truth i am disappointed with gt5......5 years of waiting for so called polishing and making it "awesome" and all we got was some interiors on about 20% of the cars, a few more tracks, piss poor wheel selection that can be installed on same 20% of the cars(in gt4 you could instal on almost all of them and more wheels), prices are ridiculous(39,000,000 for a stupid GT40:wth:), almost all cars sound the same, redlines are off again and so are the gear ratios, cars classes are idiotic(97 Civic Type R is a premium car with interior and wheels can be installed but a 00 Integra Type R is a standard model:wth:)........overall definitely NOT what i expected from Polyphony after 5 years of promises frown.gif.........as for a ps3 it's worth having but get one cheap

I wouldn't listen to the people discouraging this. GT5 has been out for a month and there's already been about 1gb's worth of updates. The game was just too fresh when it came out, but now it looks like the game can only get better..MUCH better. If you like cars and/or want a ps3, then I say go for it man.

If you can justify paying that much for a PS3 just to play GT5 then go ahead. IMO getting it just for GT5 doesn't feel worth it, and i know how you feel because i was tempted by the same idea.

Yeah, that's true depending on the person. I bought mine for the sole reason of getting GT5, but went ahead and got Uncharted 2, MSG4, and God of War III because they were on sale. Needless to say, my mind was blown many times within the course of those games. I definitely plan on keeping my PS3 biggrin.gif

Get it! I bought GT5 before I even bought the PS3. For about a week, I stared at the GT5 game and imagined all the cars I can be racing. A week later, I bought a PS3 Move bundle, a 5.1 surround sound system for my room and a 42" 120hz LCD TV just to play GT5.

No regrets. Loving every minute of it.
