    I am looking at PS3's and wondering if I should pony up the extra for more storage capacity. I plan on using it primarily for GT5 and maybe adding the thing so I can use it like a Wii (I can't remember what Sony calls their system for this.) Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Depends on if you plan to download entire games from online or need to store large files like movies or extensive MP3 collections for use as a media server, honestly. If you're just planning on using it as a Blu-ray player and gaming console, even the smaller unit can hold about a bazillion save-game files.

    I would have to agree with Matt unless you are doing insane amounts of downloading you don't really need a ton of space. Also I have the older style and the hard drive is super easy to upgrade down the road...however I am not sure about the newer ones.

    :cornut: Man I'm glad that you guys answered this. My 38yo son still hasn't been able to drag me kicking and screaming into the 21st century yet. I was going to say that PS3 was Public School #3 in NYC(completely ruining our public image:lol:).:Thumbsup:

    I liked my PS3 until the bluray drive died. Replaced it with an Xbox and spend a lot of time on Black Ops and occasionaly Forza. The PS3 is now used for streaming Netflix in the play room. I don't think that you will need too much storage though.

    Thanks I just ordered the lower memory one, GT5 and a G27 wheel. Anybody have a spare seat with rails sitting around? I would like to build a nice race rig in my basement.

    If you were closer to Knoxville I'd *give* you a second-gen Miata seat *and* a Vehicross Recaro. No rails, but they'd be free.

    Vehicross tell me more, there are two within a mile of my house thouse are one of the weirdest cars sold in the past 20 years. Cool, but just really weird.

    Miata seat is actually what I hope to find as I have seen their rails attached to plywood to make a rig and it was a pretty clean looking setup.

    2011 is not out yet. 2010 is pretty good, but I prefer 2008.

    Vehicross tribute page. The seat is a short way down. This one is red and black. It's a little dirty and missing the recline dial, but it's in good shape otherwise.
