Great. But I'm still pissed that my Logitech G27 isn't supported by either PS4 or XB1...

amnalehu1181d ago

You mean the Logitech G27 doesn't support the XB1 or PS4. They have to make the drivers.

esemce1181d ago (Edited 1181d ago )

It's not just a case of drivers, the wheels for xb1/ps4 need to contain certain chips that communicate with the console.

Dude4201181d ago (Edited 1181d ago )

Jdoki has it correct. The operating system of a computer is responsible for loading the drivers in order to communicate with internal and external devices. In this case, neither the PS4 or XB1 have the necessary drivers/hardware to communicate with the Logitech, therefore, the consoles don't support this peripheral.

NCAzrael1181d ago

Actually, they're both right. The PS4 and XB1 do not support the wheel, but it has nothing to do with drivers. As esemce said, it all comes down to the security chip that is required for high-polling devices (and in the XB1's case, certain hardware protocols). The driver issue is a simple matter to resolve, and would be resolved already if not for the lack of a security chip.

I keep annoying Logitech's customer service with update requests for when a security chip dongle will be made available (since they tweeted back in fall of last year that they were working on one) but have yet to get a straight answer.

Now people are unsure of exactly what is true now that Fanatec wheels (without the chip) are suddenly supported on the PS4 version of Project Cars.

I honestly believe for "all consoles" steering wheel future-proof compatibility issue is a very big problem.

Unless you have high paying job, or got the winning lotto numbers or can barely afford but very desperate and can't play without one - go ahead., but for the rest who have other important finances to contend and bills to pay - not really a good idea.

Bought A G25 a few years back and it only lasted a couple of years of usage and that's it. Almost tempted to buy a new one but my sanity prevailed.

I'd like the T80 for Driveclub as well as Project cars but I can't find anyone who's got one to give me a heads up if the wheel actually improves their times on DC or if it's any good. I just don't wanna waste my money. I had a wheel for PGR years ago & it was hopeless & my lap times were pathetic compared to my controller..

GordonKnight1179d ago

I've always played better with a controller. Then again I not really big on racing games, other then Mario Kart.
