Shouldn't this have a steering wheel with it? Seems a bit sparse.
I've never been a big fan of differently coloured consoles, but something about this blue really speaks to me.And I don't know about a steering wheel, but no HDMI cable in a GT5 bundle must be some sort of crime.

I like the look of the new coloured consoles, except when you look at the dualshock 3 it's actually 2 tone isn't it. C'mon Sony couldn't you have coloured in the buttons and sticks as well? I agree with El Stefio it should have an HDMI cable - these are so cheap now (unless you buy one in Sony packaging then it'll cost you 18 quid!)SO I wonder if this game really will be the system seller that Sony are hoping for.Tone I'm mostly jealous of your polyphony dynamic theme! :p
