Secondhand PS2 & GT4 package deal and Logitech Driving Force Pro wheel and pedals (for the 'Ring), all ordered from Amazon and awaiting delivery Smile

Also have a PC which has been used for gaming but although GT4 was released for PC it does not appear to be available anywhere now.

PS3 for me.. up until then it was PS2 - bought both of these for their respective GT versions...

GT3 was the reason for my PS1 upgrade to PS2 and bought PS3 a week before GT5 Prologue came out...

love it (though in truth don;t play it too often)

PS3 as I refused to buy an Xbox LOL! When GT5 (full version) comes out I may take a week off from work LOL! There are a couple scenery mistakes with GT5 Prologue. When it goes pass my place of work the shops are in the wrong order so is a section of road.

Like the above I donít really get time to play on the PS3.

As I now have an iPhone I will now be playing games on this as well. Pacman looks rather cool Wink Laughing

PC for me all the way, especially with a wheel and pedals. If anyone's after a good driving SIM for it, Live For Speed is by far the best.

My favourite console is the Nintendo 64 coupled with Goldeneye, still the best first person shooter ever in my eyes Laughing

PS2 and Wii - but I could only vote for one of them.

Both get used equally as much as the other - along with the various DS uits that the kids have

I thought I would just recommend a game that my son has bought. Its the new Beijing olympic 2008 game for the xbox 360 a goog competitive game for the family to play. I have allready broke the Javerlin record Laughing which my son was a little jealous at, joking, he didnt like me beating him at that event though Laughing. Great fun this game I think.

Rich, Iím shocked Ė most Linux Gurus that I known dislike the PS3 and consider the Xbox to be far superior Wink

We may not agree with operating systems, but we both agree on game consoles Wink Laughing

Have all of the above except the original XBox. IMO PC is the bset, but then it should be since

a) it cost more than all of the others put together
b) it involves far more "pain" and maintenance in terms of driver updates, BSODs etc

I bought mine initially for bluray playback (or so I explained to the Mrs) so, of course, if you want quality you need the PS3! Very Happy

Rich

ps. ...and yes, the thought of my game console / media centre crashing on me send shivers down my spine, so an M$ product was to be avoided!
