    Gran Turismo 5 or Forza? Also general PS3 info

    Which is the better one? I have GT5 prologue and love it (the limited goes I have had) and find it hard too see how Forza could be loads better?

    Gen me up on the differances please

    I have now got my PS3 set up and working, done the update and its all going well

    Any tips of things I need to know that can make my experiance better? I am looing at getting a couple of wireless controllers (best place to buy these?) and thinking of getting a keyboard. Is it best to get the PS one or will any bluetooth keyboard work? Can you get USB hubs for the PS3?

    I am looking to use the media PC functionalities on it, music, films, pictures etc. Any info that I should know? Any cables or gadgets that can make it more accessable or easier to use?

    cheers :mrgeen:

    Forza's only for the xBox, so if you only have a PS3, you're better off with GT5 Prologue.

    (GT is only for the PS3)

    You're into your music.

    Go to the PS store and download VidZone (it's free)
    Music Videos at your finger tips.

    If you want a keyboard any USB one will work, and will be about 20x cheaper than a bluetooth keyboard

    If you only have a PS3 there's not much point in asking about Forza

    For media playback on the PS3, install this on your computer

    and you should be able to view videos/music on the PS3

    Im not serious

    Cool but would never get through the door in my house, I have enough toys that take up space - so I am told

    Looks very cool! I have used a set up like that before or similar as Sarahs Brother has one, it is very cool! Nice present!

    Dunno, the mrs bought it for me for crimbo. She got the seat from playseats.com. She bought the optional gearshift holder, seat slider and floormat so it doesn't scratch the wooden floor. and god knows where she got the wheel set from.
