Game Idealist takes a look at the best race wheels, pedals, shifters and wheel stands to buy for Forza Motorsport 6 on the Xbox One.
Best race wheels, seriously? No mention of the Fanatec Clubsport Wheel Base V2 or the Fanatec Clubsport Pedals V3? The MadCatz wheel is junk, its a truly awful wheel from a company that makes cheap controllers that fall apart. The only wheel worth buying in that list is the Thrustmaster TX, its a quality wheel and has plenty of scope for upgrading the setup with the T3PA pro pedals and the shifter unit as well as other wheel rims which can be attached to the base. The Logitech G920 is sadly just a rinse and repeat of the G27 which itself was a minor upgrade on the G25, adding helical gears for a slightly smoother quieter wheel rotation but its not a match for the belt driven Thrustmaster TX or Fanatec CSW V2 wheels as its going to feel very notchy across the wheel rotation compared to those wheels. If you buy the MadCatz wheel prepare for disappointment and the dent in your wallet when in 12 months time it falls apart. If you can't afford the Fanatec CSW V2 the Thrustmaster TX wheel is a great second choice.
You can get the Thrustmaster TX with the 3PA pedal set for the same price as the other two wheels. While Fanatec may set the bar, the price is such a barrier to entry.
Game idealist obviously didn't do their homework. The best wheel to play Forza 6 with is the Fanatec CSW V2. It's has a steep price tag but well worth the money. The runner up to that is the Thrusmaster TX 458. Every other wheel I wouldn't play Forza 6 with if you gave it to me. The CSW V2 is in a class of it's own but the TX 458 is a really decent wheel for the price. As Revvin stated above. The Logitech wheel is the G27 in new clothing. The Madcatz wheel? Well my momma always said if you don't have anything nice to say....
Yeah the fact I saw no mention of Fanatec makes that article a joke. Madcatz wheel is a joke.
Its like they did a quick search on Amazon for XBOX wheels and wrote a quick article on it.
Need to get that H-shifter.
Is there going to be a way to flash the g920 software to the g27 so we can race with forza. I mean they're basically the same wheel just recognized different. If someone can make a software to make the Xbox think that the g27 is a g920 that'll be nice
Just wonder if this would work? http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA...
