There will be downloadable cars and tracks.

I hope these cars and tracks arnt needed to finish the game etc, lets hope its just an extra feature

I'm gonna' take a guess and say you are not referring to the character from Toy Story...

No, that's a line from "Short Circuit".

its taken them so long to develop this game lets hope it lives up to all our expectations
lets hope either i get a PS3 before then or it comes out for PSP or PS2

Not for xbox360?
Are you kidding? I mean, I'm a big 360 fan but you got to be kidding. Next, Halo will be on PS3 and then the next generation of video games will be one system put together by M$, Sony and Nintendo.

"There will be downloadable cars and tracks."

In other words were not going to finish everything for the game, rather were going to rush it to store shelves where it will be a shadow of what it could possibly be and those insane enough to buy it well milk them for more $ saying its new content!

Yeah, God forbid they use the full capabilites of a networked system and hang a carrot for users to download cars and tracks later and even, if they're that good, *gasp* try to make a profit from it.

somehow, more camera angles is a really big deal to me. My favorite camera angle from GT2 was absent from GT3. I just realized how sad this comment must seem, but I played a whole lot of GT
