Apparently, the car handling isn't quite there with Grid, according to this article:
Play.com Live - article - play™

With it being a PC game, it's bound to have some limitations because the average PC doesn't have the processing power of a PS3 Cell processor for handling realistic physics for every car on the track.

Yea, having a Cell chip behind it couldn't hurt.

Would have liked to drop in EB to pick it up tomorrow but as it is i'll only have about 5 minutes to spare getting home in time for raiding Sunwell Plateau. Kalecgos must die.

Quit playing with those toy dolls, and get yourself an M3...

Na man... New M3 is for posing. The old school M3, the E30, that was serious. Four cylinders, none of that forced induction rubbish, 5 speed, limited slip diff, and nothing else to get in the way. From an era when M3 were bought for lap times, rather than poontang.

So I bought it and its fine, but the update for GT5P fails consistanly while downloading "an error occured during the download".

Reading various news sites and forums, it looks like people are taking an average of 5-20 attempts to get the update downloaded. That's just pathetic.

As luck would have it, it finally worked, on about the 10th try.

Where is the GT-TV stuff though? nothing in there for me besides the intro movie.

And wow, the M3 with traction control off, active steering off, and professional driving physics.

GT5P just came out on the 15th here in the states, so I went and picked it up today along with a DualShock 3 controller that came out on the same date. GT5P is fine, but it feels like what it is: an unfinished portion of a game. I love what is there, but the content just feels lacking.

The DualShock 3 feels like what we should have gotten originally with the PS3. It's got more heft and just feels more solid than the Sixaxxis controller. Rumble is, of course, appreciated. Wal-Mart had it for $50, which is the same price as the normal PS3 controller (which is still at least $5 overpriced if you ask me.)
