Default What to get? DVD/NAV for my car OR a PS3?

I am a bit undecided although I am leaning towards the DVD/NAV headunit for my car with is the Kenwood DDX512 with a 6.1" touchscreen. I think it will look badass and it fits quite well in my car. Although I do want a PS3 it would be nice since GT5 is coming out soon and im dying for that game

Headunit Kenwood DDX512


+

My car!



Interior shot, imagine that head unit in teh center



Opinions there about the same price, headunit is about $500-600 and PS3 would be around that range too. NAV/DVD or PS3?

Get your computer's monitor and a PS3. Then mount the PS3 and the monitor in your car. Hack the PS3 to display ubuntu and use 3G. Then install a GPS into your PS3. Once done, you're good2go.

GTP5 is not crap. It's an ok game considering it's only the PROLOGUE. All it's doing is showing some cars and courses that will be in the actual game.
