Default I'm deliriously happy!

I went over to Walmart and got the PS2 online bundle (I get a 10% discount *woot woot*) Ran over to my local gaming supply store and grabbed GT3 and a Logitech Driving Force Pro, You know the one, It'* got 900* rotation only supported by GT4. I spent 22 hours playing yesterday, And I've realized I need to build myself a video arcade type thing in the closet to get the full effect. So far I've gotten like 25% of arcade and B-1 to B-7 Gold. And I get off work in two hours to play more too!!!

My neighbor has a wheel and i may get it from him next time he goes home. I saw on techTV where they have a thing you can buy with a car seat and a place for the pedals and wheel. You're making me think...

Buy it? I meant build it... With my 27" TV on a swivel so I can still watch it in the room, and the PS2, VCR, DVD on shevles that are accesable from the room so the remotes still work. And of course with my IROC seat in there too.

You need a steering wheel for GT3, and the one I have is the top of the line (perk of living at home) Whatever you do don't get a MadCatz Universal MC2, the one that works for PS2, Xbox, and whatever that little square system is, they die in the first week, if they work at all for PS2.

Oh i know to build the one. I'd do it but it wouldn't be so hot in the dorm this year, maybe next year in the apt. I'd never buy one of them things, although they did have speakers too.

I found this nice little 5.1 surround system with a vertical sub, That'd be nice to build into the base of the seat. Then laminate everything for the real arcade feel.

you'd be suprised, most games are only "dolby pro logic II (stereo)." i would imagine a game with the budget of GT4 would have 5.1... at least
