I'd try a racing wheel, but I'm not gonna spend $100 on one. There are other things that I actually want waiting for that money.

It would be worth it though, i played forza 3 with my cousin on one and it was the balls. However i do see where you're coming from, if i weren't saving for an apartment, I'd have bought one long ago.

I own one but I found it usless when im done playing a racing game so its not very good. In my opinion dont get it your wasting money get a analouge controller.

Well being a car fanatic, im sure SuperSkyline has more than one driving game.

The biggest thing for me right now is that the 360 is already pretty old and I don't want to buy a racing wheel that might not work on the next version. I might buy a wheel when the next Xbox comes out.

but then the games woulkd be the problem, unless 360 games can work.
Im thinking of making my own one.

That won't be a problem, when the next Xbox comes out I'm never gonna play a 360 game again. I'd just sell off whatever I have and move onto the next generation of games.

It's going to be quite a few years before any new consoles are released.

They're too costly to design, too likely to fail in the short term, there's no point in making a new one when the current ones are only fractionally utilized, and too expensive for game developers to adopt yet another format to create games for (what if they gave a console and nobody came?).

It's also way too early to give up on the current gen. All the consoles have been selling really well. Nintendo is probably the only one that could pull off a new console, and even then it would take a bit of luck.

Well I'm not expecting one to come out in a year or anything but the 360's almost 5 years old, which I think is about as old as the original was when it was discontinued.

But I think the 360 definitely has another 2 or 3 years past the 5 year point in it judging by how game developers are talking about still finding ways to better use its graphical capabilities. I just want to get a full console lifespan out of any racing wheel I buy, a good 7 or 8 years hopefully. If I buy one now I might get half that.

I don't think I'd get the full value game-wise either. I already got rid of my Midnight Club LA, I'm done the Forza 3 career, and I'm still on the fence as far as NFS Shift goes. Even if I do get Shift I'll only have that and half of Forza to enjoy.

The only way I can see myself getting a wheel is if I get a placement at an engineering firm this summer (which will literally double my normal summer earnings) and I've satisfied my LEGO Technic and Model car want lists.

Console updates have been released in 5-6 year intervals for the past five console generations (dating back to the 8-bit days). People have come to expect the updates. As soon as one company releases the first next gen console, the other two will follow suit within a year (and you better believe they're working on updates as we speak >_>). Nobody wants to fall behind, because in the long run they'll pay for it. Plus in most cases companies continue to support their former consoles to some extent, at least until the newer ones get their bearings (note the strong PS2 sales due to the poor PS3 ones, sony didn't want to put all its eggs in one basket until they were sure people liked their... basket... this is a terrible analogy.)

Remember the Gamecube and the PS3? Ralph Nader got more third party support than those two.

The PS3 is coming back in a big way. Like heroin.

This is true, but it still had a weak start. Nobody wanted to switch from the PS2 to the PS3 and all the baggage that came with it when it first came out.

I for one didn't get one at launch because 600 dollars is dumb and not worth it.
