GTPlanet confirms new PS3 steering wheel, which could hit shelves the same time as Gran Turismo 5.
But I guess the G25 is old now... 3 years sheesh. My only complaint is the direction of the cord on the pedals.. it should be like the DFPRO iirc and tuck under just incase you flush it close to a wall.
The g25 is a great wheel, only complaint on it is the piss poor shifter. I prefer the fanatec wheels though the force feedback is so sweeter.
Considering you still cant buy one until October, since they are backlogged with orders.. and no 360 titles support the wheel except forza3? Or are you buying another fantec for forza, or hoping they will convert it if you ship it to germany? I have both, the FFB on the g25 is miles above the fantec, and theh build quality is loose compared to the heavy g25. The FFB is debatable its really to taste, but the G25 is more responsive than the fantec. Try GTR2/LiveForSpeed/Gtlegends out. I mean the Fantec has a battery powered pedal base ffs.
I mean..they do exist lol..
FRIENDS COUSIN HAS THE PC FANATEC, IT GOT A FIRMWARE UPGRADE AND I TRIED IT WITH GRANT TURISMO PROLOGUE.
I've said it before and I will say it again ~ Hhmm lets see, use a no name company (Fanatec) who is relatively quite new to the scene or a LARGE World Wide renowned company (Logitech) who has been around longer, has vast knowledge and MUCH MORE experience in gaming & with peripherals? Yeah, I'll stick with my G25 http://img388.imageshack.us... And now it looks I will be upgrading to the G27 real soon...
Maybe, if I save up enough money. >_< I hope the steering wheel is slightly bigger though, longer in diameter.
YES! i knew this would happen.. GT5 FTW
A MUST BUY for GT Enthusiasts like me. Def gona pick up either this or the G25 when GT5 drops.
Another terrific accesory for the only real driving simulator,Gran Turismo. I don't think that wheel is suited for arcade racers unfortunately like Mario Kart Wii and Forza 3
This wheel suck so hard that cant be on 360 since it SUCKS ...LOL Real Gamers : http://forzamotorsport.net/... Kart Gamer : G27. R.I.P GayStation 3....lulz!
if you don't know ALL fanatec wheels are compatible with my PS3 where as ONLY ONE is compatible with yours! We also get support for many other great wheels whereas you get none! My old PC has better sim games than your console and Forza 3 is just another arcade game in sim clothing!
Real Gamer: NFS/PSP GT Real Driver: GT5 R.I.P. 360
The only way I'd want to purchase this wheel is if the pedals come with force feedback and rumble. Also, if the gear shift was more study and realistic and the wheel going lifesize. Now THAT would be the ultimate wheel!
im in!!!! yes!!!!!
hopefully they make a special GT5 version for it. there are alot of hardcore GT players out there that want this to happen. the GT wheel they recently released does not compare to the G25.
Yeah but that's meant for those who want a cheap alternative. I've been eying the Logitech Driving Force GT because I don't have the cash to blow. Hopefully this will drive the price for G25 down.
who knows how much this will cost. but i don't care. i'll be getting it when my tax return rolls in. i can't justify buying it until i get a nice bonus check like tax returns. i love it.
boy the mods are in full force tonight huh. i got my second post deleted of the night. just for calling an obvious fanboy, a fanboy. nothing else just a fanboy. oh well it's good to know their out i guess.
In the future, just leave them alone and report them as necessary. Thanks.
The wheel in your pic is rubbish, the Logitech steering wheel is the best in the world and nearly everyone who loves playing racing sims has the G25. You bashing the Logitechs steering wheels just shows how dumb and ignorant You are. You haven't been around much have You? By the way the Logitech G27 wheel has nothing to do with the PS3, talk about owning ones self. and I don't really understand where You're coming from but using Your logic the 360 is also doomed because Logitech even make Wheels for the 360.
THE XBOT IS REALLY TRYING HARD LOL! HE'S COVERING HIS EARS AND SAYING LALALALALALA
I thought that was the drumbeat for the year... or have we moved on already.
Can't afford to spend on another steering wheel when Forza3 comes-out which is a bummer ( slightly pessimistic nothing's gonna happen with that on-going petition... ) but at least my G25 would still be compatible for GranTurismo 5.
