I need a wheel for GT6!
Yeah. I plan on buying it to have a fun experience playing all my racing games.
Buying a wheel for GT6 is a great idea. But I think buying this particular wheel for GT6 isn't a great idea. This wheel doesn't seem very good. They don't advertise the degree of steering, which means it's probably a 200 degrees or less cheap wheel. And they say "manual shifter", but it's just a simple up and down sequential. Meaning quality wise, it's along the lines of a $60 Mad Katz wheel, you know.....the ones that have been around since the early PS2 days. It's not something you're going to get much realism out of To spend $90 for that quality level is really a waste of money, when for $30 or $40 more you can get a pretty high quality wheel in the Driving Force GT. It's full 900 degrees of motion, with great force feedback. great build quality that doesn't feel like a toy. It's bar none the best wheel for the money. Not as high end as the rediculously expensive (but man, I wish I could afford one) ThrustMaster, but I'd say it's equivilent to the G series quality wise, it's just doesn't have the awesome H pattern shifter or fancy design. But it's steering and feedback is right there with the G25/27 for less than half the price.
You should get the logitech its expensive but wow is it worth it.
It's $200. Ugh. I can't afford that and another console. It looks cool though. >.<
The Logitech Driving Force GT can be had new at retail for $129-$149. Bit of an investment but it's worth it if you want a realistic driving simulator experience. And better than paying $300 for a G27 or $500 (+$400 for the Hshifter!!) for the ThrustMaster.
Eh... no thanks. I'll keep my Driving Force GT till it doesn't work anymore. If it ever did die I'd just buy another Logitech wheel. They're dependable!!! Heck even my driving force pro to day still works perfectly.
Love the grammar.
