No! FM3 is 360 only. The G27 isn't 360 compatible...

But I do have access to delicious Gran Turismo

He he.

Forza is pretty fun. I've heard good things about it's physics from racing sim people, but with that it also has some rather arcadey things like a vast majority of the cars being AWD swappable and tag as a game mode. Still, I think it's very very fun.

Of course the main reason I play forza is because you can paint the cars however you like.

Enjoy your spiffy graphics there with GT5. Game looks p.cool, to say the least.

Fanatec makes a nice wheel for the XBOX 360 that rivals the G27 quality:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRtJSbTcC2g
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AtUgH0Ttwpw&NR=1


plus they make a model that works with either console & the PC
http://www.fanatec.de/webshop/new_us...950f16b125cc6f

It's one of the things I asked for for Christmas, but my wife got me the guitar instead...I can't complain though

It looks really nice though. How do you like the feel?

A grill and some grill accessories from my father.
A few hundred $$ from random family members which will go towards recovering from spending hundreds of $$ on other people.
Most stuff from my fiance, some movies, a few seasons of South Park, DJ Hero for my 360, and

Futurama: The Complete Collection.
19 disks, all 4 seasons and 4 movies, storeable in a giant Bender head. Which, will now make 3 copies of all 4 seasons I own, and 2 copies of all 4 movies.

Went to get me my first snowblower and I got one hell of a deal.

26'' wide path, 208cc and Electric Start are normally features on $800+ machines. This one was tagged at $599, with 4 year extended warranties normally $169. I got em both for $700 before taxes. Even better considering how hard a 2stage is to find right now.

Wife got me clothes. Mom got me clothes and a Home Depot gift card. In-laws got me clothes.... and 2 Rapala shadraps and a filleting board that attaches to a tree. It allows you to put a 5 gallon bucket under it to catch the 'extra' stuff.

Honestly I dislike getting clothes.
