Damn it... I want this game so bad. Checking out the screenshots and videos makes it even worse . I am the current owner of an abandoned PS3 and a custom rig with G27. I ain't planning on getting GT 5 spec 3 unless it sells for like 20 euro max . Since my mind is on Forza I don't think there is a point in keeping the PS3. No more GT coming after GT6 and even this one is definitely not worth my time. Thinking on the future my only choices are Forza and PC (having a very decent PC). The problem is I like to play offline and the GT-like career modes. I don't like to hotlap all the time nor can I show the commitment to join an online league (very busy with kids, work and dogs). It seems the only trully good choice for me will be FORZA long term (even though I have joined Project CARS i can't stand playing it since there is no AI, Career yet and customization choices will never be included *that was a bad choice but for another topic*) and their constant desire to perfect physics, customizing, drivatar make me feel that it will be totally worth it. I totally dislike Microsoft and their wheel policy with XB ONE, but on the other hand Turn10 balances it by giving me a good feeling on how better the game will become! My plan is to get an XBOX ONE and a wheel since I don't intend to play without it. So far I heard the only choice is Thrustmaster TX? Are there any more wheels coming out? I've never tried that wheel shape that is on the TX and I don't like it, I prefer the round shape. I feel that this shape is mostly for vehicles with out many degrees on steering (like carts and open wheel), which is not the case for me as I prefer normal cars mostly. If someone is informed on the matter please shed some light in case I have a totally wrong impression. The bill so far that I have in mind: XB one 400 euro Forza 5 60-70 euro and the 1 year online membership for around 50 euro. The Thrustmaster TX is for 300 euro around on ebay. That makes it a bit more than 800 euro which I hope I can lower to 500 by selling my G27 and the PS3. Of course I like the TH8 shifter and the clutch but it can wait for later. Since I am new in this (Forza) please help me out if I have missed some news on my choices. I need to plan things correctly in order so that maybe until Spring I will be ready to go for it! One of the few drawbacks in FM5 is weather and night which I hardly care about since I never bothered with them in GT5 also. The biggest problem for me is career races are only 2 laps but I can live with that since you can make custom races that count and are not considered like arcade mode in GT. How big is the career mode? Gt5 or GT4 like? That's all for now, thanks guys for reading this.
