Looking for more reasons to pick up Gran Turismo five this fall? Futureshop is bundling a free racing wheel to those who pre-order...
This is the best pre order bonus yet. It's something that improves the game experience...
I've actually been looking into finding a cheap, decent racing wheel in time for Gran Turismo. This looks to be a match made in heaven deal for me.
Stupid idea. Buy a Digital Force Pro. The older one... works fine, cant be more than 40(usd) and is quality. Was 160 when new. http://cgi.ebay.com/Logitec... Dont waste it on this garbage.
How is that a bad idea?
Invest in a solid Logitech wheel. That wheel in the picture looks cheaper then mad catz wheels. Does anyone know if GT5 even supports that unnamed wheel?
waste what? its FREE with the game you dumb goober.
Feel free to do the following: Put 87 low grade fuel in your v12 ferrari. Eat your filet mignon well done. Water down your 50 year old aged scotch Get a spray tan. Build a Mansion with no back yard. and play GT5 with a sh)t ass wheel. Its cheapening the experience. the DFpro provides amazing force input\feedback, and has pedals. Enjoy your cooked sushi :)
how could a free wheel be a bad thing
How can a wheel cheapen the experience when all you have as an alternative is a dual shock. Your logic does not compute.
lol. it had huge preorder last month. http://thesilentchief.com/2... amazing how you still have all your bubbles after trolling every ps3 article plz keep your stupid fanboy conspiracy theory to yourself
OMG im getting this, I already have a wheel, but having 2 to play with my friends in splitscreen would be amazing.
You completely missed the point. A lot of people I know aren't going to spend ANY money on a wheel so for them, cheap or not, this is a better option than just the DualShock. Also for the record, I eat deep fried sushi rolls and they are amazing.
its NOT a stupid idea just pointless because i had a cheap wheel like that and trust me when i say the ds3 is better im not saying dont get it but itl just be extra stuff in your storage because u will never use it lol best and only wheel that will feel better than a ds3 is a g27, force pro etc. nothing cheaper than 50 usd bassically its like mcdonalds giving you FREE fried roaches with your smoothie lol but i have a feeling some of u would get it anyway because its free BUT !! i never used this particular wheel befor so i really dont know im just speaking on ny experience with a cheap wheel
They ship to the U.S.?
OR you could pre-order the game and get a free gaming wheel with it. Then when you have money to upgrade (you know, not all of us are rich), get a new wheel. I never knew that someone would actually complain about getting something absolutely free.
Pretty sure it's free because the game is probably WORSE with it. Playing with the controller is better than playing with a garbage wheel.
GT5 might support, it but it won't be recognised as a wheel, just a much more variable analog controller.
Who cares if it's a sub par wheel, at worst you could use a better one yourself, and save this wheel for second player for friends, which is better than a DS3. It's amazing that people are bitching because the wheel isn't top of the line... Usually you get a fuckin rinky dink art book with preorders or something, now that you get something actually useful and above and beyond the norm, you bitch because your FREE racing wheel isn't expensive enough?
whos bitching ?? its a cheap wheel . and judging by other cheap wheel i had ( even had pedals ) its not better than ds3 nobody bitching im just saying it will be a disappointment if you think it will actually further enhance the driving experience than a ds3 so im more of .. informing than bitching
I don't recall singling you out... There are other comments in case you haven't noticed. And good for you, that's your opinion, I would be happy to get a free wheel regardless. But again, I wasn't talking about you in the first place. And as for your question "Who's bitching?" well, plenty of people, it's up to you to read the comments, I can't do that for you.
well the fact that you pointed out that its better than a ds3 and im the only one who said its not better .. and im pretty sure u considered me part of the"bitching crowd" any free wheel is better than no wheel i guess id perfer limited edition cars :p
like...really cheap yet decent? otherwise I'll stick to dualshock. dno, smt about buying a racing wheel and pedals for one game seems overkill to me =|
Look at my post below. That's about as cheap as you can get to a really good wheel.
helpful bubs comin' your way!
ok,now im going to pre-order this
EBAY or Craiglist free wheel. Then buy a good wheel like the GT one. It's $100 best wheel for money!!
That this wheel would "explode" out of sheer awesomeness of GT5. -End statement
I take it you can't "import" this to the US? I've tried my postal code and it keeps saying invalid. Damn :(
Same here! I was so upset when it wouldn't let me put my zip code in. I must have tried at least 15 times. You win this time Canada.
if this is also true in the uk? ive preordered from game. any help would be appreciated
IN SOVIET RUSSIA, CRAPPY WHEEL DRIVES YOU!
Not too sure I'd go for that, I'd probally go for a nice Logitech wheel, I've got no idea what brand that wheel is.
But hey free is free. If you had a choice of pre-ordering the game why not go for a deal that tosses something like this for free?
yea by the look of that picture, it looks pretty cheap and it may break immediately after few days of gameplay.
ya but you paid 0$ for it
Agreed, I just bought a logitech for this, And although at first I thought I missed something here, I wouldnt have personally gone for it anyway. It is still a great deal for anyone who may want it though Wrong country for me anyway, many many miles away lol
yea its free, but how do you plan to gas/brake while turning? it has no pedals! this thing isn't worth the plastic is was molded from.
1. Wired 2. No Pedals 3. Intec! http://www.futureshop.ca/en...
But who cares. If you don't have any wheel whatsoever this deal is perfect and if you do it's still not bad either. You're getting more for the price of a game.
I would have pre ordered this game but who knows when I'd get it
how have you got 5 bubbles? troll!
Lighten up, it's a goddamn joke
I c what you did there >.>
:( Australia you should learn from this.. If I lived i'n Canada I would soo get this.
Nice to see a fellow aussie on this site. Cheers mate.
Damn you lucky guys o well am getting mine for £32 since i pre ordered my game few years back
Driving Force GT Dented Box - New for $77. So for those who want a better wheel. It's on sale at the moment. I've gotten a dent box and it's new, just a dent box. http://slickdeals.net/forum...
great price for this wheel. i've used the g25 my friend has and it's awesome, but for $77 i might have to bite on this one. big difference between force feedback and non, although you can't argue with $0. the only negative to me are bulk and where to mount it (that's what she said)
thats a great deal I want one but just got laid off but anyone who thinks not getting the best wheel you can for this game is nutz
the major benefit of a wheel is the feedback it provides. if this doesnt have force feedback then you may as well be using a mouse tied to a turn table. a little more control but no actual benifit. and no pedals. yeah its free but i have a feeling it will be broken in a week or youll opt for your ds3 rather than playing with a big wheel that prally dosent turn past 80 degrees. The Dfgt that i use for gaming which was designed for GT turns 900 degrees so no matter what i have 1:1 linear steering. It seems nice but you may run into more problems than you bargained for.
You need something to make up for the delays.
some sort of plastic wheel which the move sticks on to yeah, great deal by the way
But I love your profile pick. : ) I will however add that I've not tried move so I guess I should give that a go first.
you mean like the Mario cart wheel for wii why not.. if its free. but i wouldnt count on it. Imagine what would happen with another delay because of move
Logitech MOMO is the best for those on a budget.
Gt5 should come with a steering wheel after all the delays it should be part if the package ! Stop disappointing your customers sony your embarrasing your fan base. You might not care but reallity is your gt5 is looking like a myth make it happen ..period
this is the FIRST time GT5 has been delayed. If you WERE a 'fan' you would know this.
Sony hasn't disappointed with all the great exclusives, prick.
Free is free. I would sell this on ebay though and would upgrade to much better wheel.
Um no I don't need a reason to pick it up ... Its Grand Turismo for God sakes !!! But yea nice racing wheel
Does it come with pedals? if not how do you use the gas while driving, because if it is one of the buttons that is located near the inner part of the stearing wheel while driving it will be pretty hard to steer while using the gas to go. Regardless of whether I get a racing wheel or not when I get gt5 it still will probably be a great game.
Refer to Pedobear Rock's post. But if you're too lazy to look. It does not have pedals and it's pretty bulky with a suction cup design. Clamp is better. Also it doesn't have 900 degree and no force feedback.
Awesome deal. Great game and a free racing wheel? Hook a brotha UP! even though i already have a racing wheel, I will order this from futureshop anyways. Free baby.
can you preorder from the store or is it online only?
I think it's online only, not sure.
I just called the nearest Future shop in my area and they said that it's available in store as well.
wow this might be the first game i've pre-ordered in about 4 years
holy shit! a racing wheel!?!?!?! wow,that's the best preorder deal i've seen in a while
