I don't know the answer to your questions but I'm anxiously awaiting a response. I just bought my XBox 360 yesterday at Target. Microsoft dropped the 20GB Pro model by $50 to 299 and Target offered a $25 gift card on top of that so, I finally took the plunge.
Just ordered Forza 2 on Amazon so, I'm almost ready to roll.
I thought about buying GRID but I heard there's no practice or qualifying and that the AI sucks. Supposedly your teammate will try and crash you on the last lap if you are leading. The graphics look good but that sounds childish to me.

Forza is OK, but the PS2 and 3 steering wheels are far more realistic than anything compatible with xbox IMO. I have both( Uh, I mean my son has both ) The PS is way better IMO, when complete PS3 version comes out, it will be awesome. Or is Forza comes out with a decent steering wheel. Jim

GTR2 is a PC simulator and WAYYY better than ANY console!! You play games on the consoles (XBox and PS3) but if you want to drive a SIMULATOR the PC is the ONLY way to go! The logitech G25 wheel and pedal is the setup for the money ($225) but there are some serious stuff up in the $1500.00 range
