    Gran Turismo 6

    This time of year I dust the PS3 off and play some games. Since I have owned a PS3 90% of the time I have played GT5x. As you may or may not know GT6 came out about a month ago. There are some nice new features in the game - a few new internet play features allow you to see your GT6 friends lap times on certain events, some controller/car setting information, and their lines around the track - in real time. Anyway, if anyone is playing GT6 feel free to look me up. My PS3 user name is evo8joey.

    The M4 is also included in GT6. They have had a couple "Seasonal Events" so far that include the M4. They just released an update that allows you to drive from the inside of the M4 as well. I have to say the M4 is feeling very good!

    The following BMWs are in GT6:

    BMW 120d '04
    BMW 120i '04
    BMW 135i Coupé '07
    BMW 2002 Turbo '73
    BMW 320i Touring Car '03
    BMW 330i '05
    BMW Concept 1 Series tii '07
    BMW M Coupé '98
    BMW M3 '04
    BMW M3 Coupé '07
    BMW M3 Coupé Chrome Line
    BMW M3 CSL '03
    BMW M3 GTR '03
    BMW M3 GTR Race Car '01
    BMW M5 '05
    BMW M5 '08
    BMW McLaren F1 GTR Race Car '97
    BMW V12 LMR '99
    BMW Z4 '03
    BMW Z4 M Coupé '08
    BMW 507 '57
    BMW E92 M3 (BMW Motorsport) '10
    BMW M3 GT (BMW Motorsport) '11
    BMW M3 GT2 Base Model '11
    BMW Z4 GT3 '11
    BMW Z8 '01
    BMW M4 Coupe '14

    I won PS3 and GT6 from a Facebook IHG promotion. Any recommendations on a wheel? I can't find any local.

    Fanatec makes good wheels. Just check compatibility with whatever you'll use it with.

    Wow! Very nice.

    I use a Logitech Driving Force GT Wheel - one of the most popular for PS3/4. It is a great wheel, has come down a lot in price as well. I am pretty sure I ordered it from Amazon although Best Buy has them. The only con against this wheel is manually shifting, some other wheels offer bigger shift paddles, which will help gain .10ths off a lap/segment easier. A wheel is the way to go, hand controllers are very tough, and pretty much turn you into a drift driver. You lose so much without having a wheel.

    I found a cheap wheel in all places, Staples.
    Since my attention span isn't very long I wanted to get something right away.

    I've read reviews of the logitech wheel. Don't always trust what I read.
    I'll place an order this week, thanks.

    I play a little forza 4 on the 360 every once in awhile if only I didn't dump so much into my car I could contemplate treating myself to a ps4 and GT6! My gamertag is "Private Match" feel free to add me, although the membership fee is no longer in my budget.
