  • Logitech announces Official Gran Turismo Racing Wheel for PS3

    Only the hardcore need apply:

    Want the perfect prologue to sim racing's most-distinguished brand? Tack another $150 onto that $40 download, as Logitech has unveiled the official, and pricey Driving Force GT racing wheel. Engineered specifically for Gran Turismo 5 Prologue (but compatible with GT4 and GT5 on PS2), the Driving Force features requisite force feedback, plus a new 24-position realtime adjustment dial (see -- it's red!), so you can fine-tune the brake bias, traction control and damper settings on-the-fly. Brake bias? Damper settings? Just point us to the boost button!

    The Driving Force GT wheel is "expected" to ship in May.

    Playing Gran Turismo single handedly made me a better driver. It's where I first got familiar with tuning, and learning about entry points, brake points, and other strategies I use whenever I head to the track or Karting at K1 or Dromo 1.

    Might have to pick this up whenever I decide to get a PS3!

      but these are all nothing when compared to those setups that use multiple flat panels set up around a Recaro racing seat. They use 4 360's in network to get you a true wraparound experience. The ones I've seen are a stupid amount of money.
