    I'm not sure. I'm confused on this Premium/Classic thing and if I only get 20 cars to start and have to pay for the rest then screw that. I'm not much a video gamer anyway, but I have always loved GT. I had planned on getting the PS3 just for GT5 but now I don't know. We will see I guess.

    Yes i will, just like getting a PS1 for GT and a PS2 for GT3.

    I would have bought a PS3 anyway, but only because i could safely say that a GT title would appear on the PS3 at some point ;)

    I'm pretty much in the same position as Team666, I'm not buying a PS3 for GT:HD, I was getting one anyway.

    I probably will get a PS3 when HD comes out. I'll get the complete version, whichever one that is, even though I can't utilize the HD graphics. I want the new physics and all that. It' going to suck having to buy cars with real money though.

    I've already started squirelling away money that Lady DA doesn't know about. Stock pile it so that I can pick it up when I want it.

    GT is the only reason why I have a PS2. In all seriousness, I have less than 10 PS2 titles. Never owned a PS1.

    Yes, Odd. Maybe a bit sad too.

    I only play racing games, so yes, I'm planning to buy the PS3 only when GT:HD will be released. Considering the news we read here, that will likely happen almost a year from now (PAL/European version)

    Call me a retard or fanboy (Dont forget I owned PGR3 and a Xbox 360 for about a month and half.) but GTHD sucked at E3 2006 this year and I planned to hold off then I heard about Ferrari! Made me think and now I want a PS3 at launch. (I already planned on getting one at launch long before) But this just makes me want it now. So I guess I can say yes?

    I bought a PS2 primarily for GT3.

    I'll be getting a PS3, but I'll wait for GT5 to get it I believe. Too expensive for my budget within the first one or two years.

    -> Well I'm still 50/50 on getting the PS3 at launch, but I've learned my lesson from PS2 for waiting for over a month getting it. But GTHD to me is so tempting, it make me wanna feel like "BUY IT NAW!!!!" kind of thing, but maybe waiting for GT5 is more worth it, I think. :indiff:

    Hey, there ain't anything wrong with waiting to get the PS3 only when GT 5 comes out. That's always been my plan for darn near every console that hit the market for the last decade. I wanted to get Virtua Fighter for the Sega Saturn, 20 games later I'm playing I'm playing Command & Conquer. With the PS1, I wanted only to play Final Fantasy VII . . . 20 games later . . . you get my drift.
    It's gonna be the same with the PS3 . . . GT5 only!! . . . Yeah, until Madden 2010 comes out . . . Virtua Fighter 8 . . . Metal Gear . . .

    Maaaybe. There's no other games I'm interested in on the PS3. If GT:HD turns out to be all that and more, then maybe.

    I'm just going to wait for GT5, then I'll buy a PS3.
    Not even GT5?

    If I had 9 Million dollars to spend on the PS3, then I would....

    I won't be getting a PS3 just because of GT5, after all, it is only just GT4 with on-line, and a GT5 Demo, not much in the way of a "wow, must buy that" factor. I'm actully more interested in the next Metal Gear Solid.. lol!

    I dont know yet... but id say im 70% sure ill get the PS3 when GTHD comes out. The online is tempting, very tempting, and I wouldnt have to buy one when GT5 comes out. While waiting for GT5 would save me 200-300 dollars, I think playing GT online and driving Ferrari's in HD for those 2 years until GT5 comes might be worth that money. Plus I could get the next MGS.

    Like some people here, GT is one the only video game I play (atleast 90% of the time ive played PS and PS2 was a GT title, id say, the rest going to MGS3 and a few other games), so It may be hard justifying the high price for 1 game series. But I did buy a PS2 for GT3, DFP and component cables for GT4, and GT1 has set up shop in my PS, so Im probably insane enough to do it. :lol:

    Probably so, if I don't already have one by the time GT:HD comes out. I haven't waited more than a couple weeks after a GT game was released to buy it, so why should I wait now? That's only rent for one month :D

    At this point the PS3 is just slacking off - Some mistakes were made in the main CPU design, for example. No DS because the put some kind of gyro in the controller, which won't be used by 99% of the games coming out. No actual improvement over previous game consoles except in graphics, and not even that much - and that's where GT:HD comes in.

    At this stage, HD looks to be GT4 with a HD resolution option, and nothing else. Even if it gets an online mode i'll be hardpressed to buy a PS3 just to play 1 game - it *is* 600 bucks we're talking about, along the already higher cost of games for it.

    I'll wait for GT5 (and Tekken 7) before i'll get a PS3 probably, there's no real reason to get one over the PS2 at this point - there's simply not enough new stuff to justify the cost, especially when looking at the state of my (now empty due to that icon below my name) bank account.

    I'll definitely get a PS3...but I will wait until AFTER GTHD comes out to pull trigger.

    OT: Not been able to confirm this as of yet but has anyone heard if the PS3 will be backwards compatible? I'm assuming it will be..actually I'm hoping it is just so I can see how good GT4 will look..but if not, then no biggie...

    Maybe, but my Gamestop informant said that their preorders at their stores sold out within 20 minutes of opening the other day.

    I might wait until the PS3's price drops to less than $200, and then buy it. My decision to purchase GT5 will then be decided on whether or not the physics are any good (EBGames demo console and/or rental can tell me that), although the PS3 will likely have other games I'll want (Ace Combat 6, Ridge Racer 7, etc...).
