Has the Low Cost Steering Wheel Broken Online Racing?

With steering wheels dropping in price, and more gamers choosing to use them with games such as F1 2010 and GT5, is this putting controller users at such a disadvantage that they'll avoid playing online all together?

Lower cost wheels means... just get a low cost wheel.

What a ridiculous crybaby article.

Let me guess - buh....but that means people who can afford a wheel go faster. Yep that's right, just like real F1 - the teams that invest in the equipment go faster.

Although I respect your approach, I still reckon that it will piss off some mature gamers.
I mean, if im playing with a 6 speed gear stick G25 on Manual with clutch, it would be much more fun if the other online players were also using it.

It would feel much more authentic.

juniordee3339d ago

Don't feel gimped from using a clutch, because it's proven that you can shift gears faster with a clutch in GT5P than without. That's why the clutch was disabled in GT5TT so it was fair for people that weren't using it.

nycredude3339d ago

It's a freaking driving game. it should be played on a wheel. That being said does Gt5 support the clutch on the G25 cause I have one and would to use the clutch.

Ryuzu did you even read the article? It concludes by saying they haven't ruined online racing but makes a point that developers might want to consider to level the playing field.

Read the full story before making stupid comments.

Defend your own site much?

PoisonedMonkey3339d ago (Edited 3339d ago )

Look, if you don't even read the article then there's no point having a paddy about it. The intro here clearly suggests it's a two sided article.

boodybandit3339d ago (Edited 3339d ago )

Then write, submit it and move on.
Don't sit here and defend it unless you don't believe in it.

Anybody with webspace is now a critic.
So be it, but learn how to take the critcism like a man.
Don't rush here up in arms to defend it. I don't agree with your opinion.
Deal with it!

Blaine3339d ago

then maybe you should consider giving it a less misleading title.

Boody-Bandit3339d ago (Edited 3339d ago )

Stop using sensationalist headlines before posting your stories.
The content should merit the hits and not the title.

I've got to get me one of those! Just one thing. Anyone got €20,000 I can borrow for a while?

DlocDaBudSmoka3339d ago

it reminded me of the Days of Thunder ride at Kings Island. imagine getting all that just watching a movie. that looked sooo fun. i want one now.

alphakennybody3339d ago

Playing motorstorm with that would be the best!

cobraagent3339d ago

Do you know how mauch it costs?

nix3339d ago

buying a car would be cheaper, i think. q:

alphakennybody3339d ago

it's less cheaper than byuing a real f1 though :)

Boody-Bandit3339d ago (Edited 3339d ago )

It makes me want to walk over to my rig and take a sledge to it. LOL!
That simracer is insane sick. It's better than the setup they had at gamescon.
fast forward to 19:30 or so.

Holeran3339d ago

I would have to install a toilet on that thing because I would never leave.

Boody-Bandit3339d ago (Edited 3339d ago )

My racing setup is a joke compared to that but I have it set up right next to my bathroom for that very reason. I can go quick between races while it's loading the next track. It's also set up 6 feet from the fridge and micorwave. ;)

Some of the setups you guys are linking are sick! I just wish I could bankroll a VRX racer. It's a racing cockpit built on dbo and imotion technology. Those setups start at 5k and are upwards of 30k. I love racing games but that's too rich for my blood.

Guess I will stick to my G27 and 911 S for now.
