I got one of these during the first shipments and I absolutely love it. It has a slight edge over Logitech's racing wheel but that's just my opinion.

Whoa didnt know it was that good. I always run with logitech. Will this be 100% compatible with GT5? I would hate to get it and then it turns out crappy. Whoa this $hit looks amazing. Says its fully compatible with PS3 but how about Gran Turismo. GT usually throw their support behind logitech. I plan to get a new wheel for prologue but it costs 350 dollars lol thats like another ps3 right there

I played it with the GT5 Prologue and it worked perfectly. I'm shelving my G25 for awhile.

The main thing that interests me about this wheel is the wireless capability though I'm not sure how long the batteries would last on a force feedback wheel. I own a G25 at the moment and the review is totally wrong when it says that all three pedals feel the same - there is a distinct difference in each one. Having just bought a Gameracer Pro seat the wireless would be a big benefit to me but the G25 is tried and tested. I'm a long time user of Logitech wheels and know they are very durable so we'll have to wait and see how the Fanatec wheel turns out. The G25 has built in support in most of the PS3 driving games I wonder if the same will be true of the 911 wheel.

Very convincing indeed... especially it being wireless and sturdy plus it looks good and realistic enough.
Hope they make a few other wheels that resemble other famous car brands - since it is made in Germany why not release a Merc, BMW or even an *Audi ( my fave ) and Volkswagen... just a thought.
