      This is the best we have for PS3 until GT5 comes out. I do wish EA would stop charging people for packs when we have already spent $60 on the game. Doesn't seem right.

      No Audi R8 V10? Mercedes SLS?

        I dunno. One of the newest trends going around these days is called "Hype". I've noticed this alot with various things ranging from Movies to Cars.
        But I guess that is to be expected in a world driven by media & advertising.
