Forza does sound good
The PS3 works fine with any logitech wheel, and probably works well with others. I don't think any games support the G25 natively, but you can always set it as a DFP and everything works good. There aren't any games I'm aware of that will use the clutch + h-gate though. This will probably change in the future since everything is still new. I can check the demo of DiRT and see if it is listed or not. Nope, I don't even see a wheel setting in DiRT.

I probably use my PS3 for a BD / DVD player more than gaming since the HD movies look great, and there is a noticeable difference in upscaled dvd's. You probably already have a player for that though.

I also like the ability to use the KB and mouse with it. I have a logitech MX5000 bluetooth setup and you can pair both of them directly with the PS3 so you don't need the dongle. This makes it a lot easier to send a message to someone or if you want to surf the net really quick, you can do so.

Halo 3 would be a good reason to pick the 360 over the PS3, but with UT3, COD4, and a few other games right around the corner you might use the PS3 more. I've also heard that Forza is a pretty good game, so that would be a plus for the 360.

My other question is did you have a console before or still do? Otherwise it might make a difference if there are some older games for either one that you'd love to try out.
