For the car racing games such as "Need for Speed: Rivals" does Sony sell a "wheel" so to speak so that you can use that to move the vehicle or you use the regular controller and press the buttons? Just curious how car racing is on Play station. :)

There are a few companies that produce a steering wheel for the PS3 ....Logitech, Thrustmaster and Hori come to mind at the moment.

Wow. This generation console war is shaping up to be like the good old days with Sega and Nintendo! :)

Still, I'm undecided on which one to get. Both are excellent systems, both have excellent games. I won't use the Kinect, though, so I'm paying an extra $100 for no return. So, the PS4 looks to have my vote.... probably... Maybe?

I am leaning toward the Play Station 4 but to have full family approval, I will have to get the Nintendo Wii U as well since that console has more small kid games. Got to compromise, right?? :)

Count me as one of the pre-order statistics. Killzone bundle on launch day and can't wait. Also consider it as a new Blu-ray player that should be 3x's faster with load times.

I have had mine on amazon preorder since day one. Looking forward to it but wondering since in not a huge gamer if I should cancel preorder in favor of the oppo bd-103? Hmm......ps3 is my current blu-ray player. The faster speed of the ps4 is what kind of made me go for it but now I'm not so sure with the oppo getting such great reviews and at $499. What to do????

If you're not much into the games I would definitely go the Oppo route.

Gran turismo 5 is all I play and not much anymore. Gt6 is being released on ps3 and might be the only other game I'd care to play. I think I may need to reevaluate the blu-ray situation. Oppo is looking like a big possibility.
