Re: Opinions from console afficianado's
If the PS3 F1 game had Force Feedback, I would have gotten a PS3 already. From my understanding, it doesn't have FFB for the north american version. I refuse to get a racing game that I will play with my wheel if it doesn't support FFB.
As for Forza 2, it is a very nice game, I've been playing it a lot online.
However, I should warn you, if you want to have a lot of fun with it and actually be competitive online, you better be a hardcore racer. I've had to tune a lot of cars to find particular good ones, and then I used online suspension calculator to fine tune all the settings, and then practice with them for several laps and get the gearing down correctly. Most of the people that play it online practice a lot and are very very good, so in order to fully enjoy the game, you need to be a hardcore racing guy.
