Just curious to findout how much people have spent on peripherals since the confirmed release of GT5. Wheels, seats etc etc

I purchased a Sony eye cam from Asda for £20 at the weekend - for the head tracking feature on GT5.

Spoke to the local game shop today and he said I can have my preordered copy tomorrow morning (Oh my missus will be pleased) :smashin:

What makes me laugh is the pitiful little amount spent on the game itself AND you bought two copies. :D

I'm not going to play this game as it's a scary number too, seeing those cold hard (large) numbers like that is just positively terrifying. :rolleyes: :D

I feel i should spend £10,000 on the game to make it make since. :blush:

Who started this stupid thread anyway? :(

Please play this game too or someone beat my amount. :lease:

Must not show the missus this or she will kill me. :D

£29.99 GT5 from BestBuy.
£24.99 Logitech Driving Force Wireless from Maplin.

I would have bought the Driving Force GT but I don't have enough room in my bedroom.

Ain't even bought the game yet!!

Will probably hold off the peripherals until it's confirmed it's not a let down.

That way, if it is, i'll still play it, save some money and Lee will top himself. (or his mrs' will do it for him)

All I've spent is £32.95 for the game.

I've already got a Driving Force Pro wheel that I got when Prologue first came out, so that's me done.

Just need to work out a cheap/diy upgrade from the ironing board as a wheel stand now :)

GT5 £35, WSP £120, G27 £190. I had the US collectors edition and signature edition on preorder as well, but cancelled them both this weekend after realising I have already spent £350 just for GT5 and also after seeing my recent bank statement.

This quote made me laugh.

Looks like alot of people have spent a fair amount of cash on kitting themselves out (Logitech must be smiling all the way to the bank)
