Really?!?! Last I heard Logitech was done with gaming peripherals. Looks awesome! Love all the buttons on the wheel my G25 has a whopping 2 buttons!

Guessing it's made for PS4 but hopefully works for PC too.

I'm not a fan of the buttons on the wheel... I hope it unclips for ultimate customisation. If it's legit that is.

It is totally related to the game. Wheels that work with the game are nowhere to be seen with US retailers, we need alternative.

My guess is it's being deleted because SMS has a deal with Thrustmaster and this kind of news kinda ruins their business as they want as many as possible Thrustmaster wheels to be sold before Logitech joins the party.

In my zone Thrustmaster T300 was selling for 250€ before pCARS came out, now it's 350€ everywhere.

The G27 was 349,- euro's when it was brought to light. If it sells for that, including the pedals and shifter, is is going to be one hell of a competitor!

I did want the G27, then logitech said they were supporting consoles because they said there's no profit over there (people forgot about that), then the PS4 & Xbox One came out, then logitech tried to make sony the bad guy about this security authorization for the PS4 for the G27 even though they said they weren't supporting consoles in the past, now here comes the G29, hope its as great as the G27, hope people like it, but I'll stick with my T300RS

The blue botton placements are so odd, and the buttons on the top doesn't look practical with the rest of the wheel. I'd call shenanigans on this, and last I heard Logitech was done with these things.

I had a G25 and it was a great wheel, never got around to buying a G27 but if a G29 ever does come out, I'll be picking it up... which seems quite unlikely right now, Thrustmaster has too much traction in this department right now.

HarryHoodlum
22-05-2015, 16:30
Logitech was done with these things until Sony sold 25 million PS4s without any proper wheels to go with it. Money talks.

This product is 110% real and is releasing in 2 months. Mark it.

Also that design looks like a complete regression for Logitech and doesn't fit G series lineage. That's just my opinion.

I hope so bro, I'm dying for a wheel, and Thrustmaster horror stories are shying me away from the $300+ ranged ones, won't invest in a expensive wheel like the Fanatec ones until I can play this game with a entry level FFB wheel and make sure it feels right.

But why wouldn't Logitech at least tease it to the public? Even if it's not ready yet? It's not like it would kill g27 sales or anything and they must know about the situation in a wheel world at the moment. It would be in their best interest to tease it, show something to us. Making secret out of it is the stupidest think Logitech can do at the moment.

Maybe it was Logitech themselves that leaked the the info and photo to get the hype up, and maybe they staged the whole picture takedown from virtualr.net to show it was legit. Companies have done it before. Usually if something is fake its left alone on the net.

Or maybe it was a true leak and the company didnt have anything to do with it (someone breached their NDA agreement/contract), and that takedown was a real deal on trying to stop the leak. But the same thing still applies, Usually if something is fake its left alone on the net.

Maybe Logitech are thinking on selling the wheel rim apart, without the base for the owners of a G27? I don't believe too much on this, but who knows... I still have my G27, if they release a new rim, maybe I give it a chance.

I know the G27 don't have a "quick release" like Thrustmaster, but it can be a possibility. I disassembled my G27 time ago, and it's not easy, but nothing super complicated. What do you think guys?

I see Ian Bell answering to a guy on this forum, about of Logitech future on PS4. And Ian said that he can't say nothing about. I think if he can't say nothing, makes me think there will be a new wheel from Logitech for PS4.

Hope my english was enough. Peace for all.

Because they want people to buy G27 for as long as possible. Why that? Because G29 will be Win10/Xbone(Dx12+) and PS4 only.
Or maybe it all an hoax. Just like all the different iPhone hoaxes that was 100% real :rolleyes:

The G29 is for Real.
It will Use the same Motor Base as the G27
It's an Updated version of the DFGT Wheel. Fully Leather Wrapped.
Fully PS4 compliant ( PS, Share, Option buttons )
It sports the red RA( real time Adjustment wheel. ( this Means it will Be an Official wheel for the PS4 for a different title )
Share, Option, and PS buttons
The Shifter is sold Separately
Rumored pricing:
Wheel and Pedals prices around $399
Shifter will be $99

The Logo in the Center is from Logitech's partnership with Playseat.
It's Logitech's Gaming Logo

I'm liking the look of it but I'm going to wait. Looking to buy another wheel but I'll wait to see what the verdict is on this before I buy. It will probably have bugs and faults upon release like most things these days. Then, I'll make my decision from there. Its a toss up between this and a Thrustmaster atm....

So the G29 will not be brushless like the T300? If it is like G27, no interest, G27 is an old technology.

Most people would prefer Logitech with it's legendary G25 and G27. Logitech knows this and now most people will buy the Logitech, once it releases, because of that. Fuck that. I'll go with a second hand good G27, knowing Logitech, it will most likely have the same base anyway. Plus, because everyone will be drooling over the G29 most poeple will put they're G27's online, at bargain prices.

I've heard good things about the G27. Never used one though with me originally racing on Xbox 360's Forza. So that's why I went with Fanatec. Glad I did though as it's awesome! When it works right obviously lol. Would love the latest version with all the club sport attachments but no way can I afford it. Nor would I be able to give it the time it would deserve.

Like i've said, wait for the official announcement duders. I don't think logitech is foolish enough to release this wheel above 299 usd. They know competitive price is one of their real strong points and i don't think they're so willing to let that advantage go.

If you ask my opinion(i don't think you do but whatever :D) this will be 249 usd. Without shifter of course.

Just sold my G27 and replaced it with a T300. I still love the G27, it is a remarkable good wheel in terms of features and pricing (bought new for around €230 some years ago). I used it for two years, it never let me down. The force feedback on it (with GT) was also very good. The new layout and features look promising. Selling the shifter separately wouldn't be an issue I guess, never really used it anyway.

Boston77Bruins
25-05-2015, 16:46
Ive had several Logitech wheels over the years. From the Driving Force pro, the DFGT and finally the G27 (which is several years old). NOT ONCE have I ever had an issue with reliability. They always ran as they should. Plug it in and play.

I haven't bought a new wheel for the next gen consoles, and I'm glad I haven't. I've been holding out for Logitech. This rumor has me a tad excited.

Several factors come into play when buying a wheel (For me). 1. Economics. How much wheel can I afford? 2. Reliability- is this investment going to last? 3. Performance- does the wheel do what I want it to do?
Logitech checks off all the boxes for me.

Cheers fellas

That red dial looks very suspect.

The DFGT had that red Dial. It was used by One Game that I know of. GT5
It was for the Real time Adjustments. ( during a Race you could tweak, ABS, TC, Brake Bias, Front/Rear Torque on 4wd, press the center of the wheel, to access the RA menu
use the + and - buttons to move up and down the menu, rotate the red wheel to make the adjustment.

Since this wheel sports the RA dial, it will be backward compatible with PS3 and GT5, GT6, and maybe it also hints at targeting GT7 with RA capability.

The G27 is still priced at $299.00
http://gaming.logitech.com/en-us/gaming-controllers

This will not be an Entry level wheel, so the rumored price of $399.00 sounds about right for the current Mid Level wheel market.

Thrustmaster T300 - $399 Wheel and Pedals
Logitech G29 - $399 Wheel and Pedals

Edit: added lnk
http://www.discoazul.co.uk/logitech-g29-racing-wheel.html
293 quid is about $450 us - so $399 us sounds right.

While the G29 will use the same motor Base as the G27, it's not yet known if it will use the same internals.
Probably will keep the same quite Helical Gearing, but maybe more powerful motors. ( the G27 used 2 )

The G25 had the noisy Gears. I see so many posts about how noisy the G27 is.
I've Now owned 3 of them, the G27 Helical gears are very Quiet, never had any issues with them.
( had 3 separate PS3's each with it's own Wheel, started with the DFGT, then updated one by one to G27's, Now I'm using a T300 )

Ugh I hate hearing that. Noise is a huge concern of mine with wheels. It's already annoying me how loud the paddle shifters are on the T80/T100, I can hear the sound going into my headset and coming out of people's speaker systems a second later. Force feedback sounds plus the clicking of shifters would drive me nuts.

I know what the dial is for, own a DFGT and all the GTs as well. Currently the dial is recessed with the back end a semicircular shape to follow the shape of the dial. The "g29" has a straight edged spoke and the dial looks mighty close to it like there could be interference. Hence looks suspect to me.

Why change something when it works just fine? 9/10 people chose the G27 for a reason.

Why change something when it works just fine? 9/10 people chose the G27 for a reason.

All I know is I refuse to pay $579 for a T300 that has the same cheap plastic base as a T80.

293 quid is about $450 us - so $399 us sounds right.

WTF! It says "OPTON" instead of "OPTIONS"? :disillusionment:

On the Dualshock 4 Says OPTIONS (plural)

And the "SHARE" letters are not well centered :p

For me, the displacement of the "Playstation", "Share" and "Options" buttons are not well designed. Too near. If you need to push Options, it is easy to touch the Share button accidentally and... voila, the console menu to share something. Or the PS button etc... This can be annoying.

The Thrustmaster wheels are sold out everywhere. Supply cannot meet demand. This is a huge opportunity for Logitech.

Gran Turismo insider Amar212 said on neogaf: "New owner decided to return into gaming as a core after bad results made by 2012 refocus. This is the start. Finally unveield, they really made a great job with keeping it under wraps. This is 100% production unit IMO"

I hate to burst everyone's bubble but I think that this is a marketing ploy to sell more games like DriveClub, the crew and even project cars. Both drive club and the crew were both disappointments compared to the hype they were given and the delays before being released. It may be in the works but if Logitech was to come back into the console market then don't you think it would be in their best interest to supply Sony with the drivers for their existing wheels for the ps4 to keep their current customers happy. By not doing that they are having customers jump ship by spending 300 bucks and up for a t300 or t500. With the success of pcars there is finally a game where a ffb wheel adds to the experience. Now that this new wheel is fresh in everyone's mind there will be many more people buying these games and using their controllers holding on to hope Logitech will release the new wheel or drivers so their wheels will work on the PS4. I hope I am wrong because I would love to play this game with a wheel.

Keep that in mind and think about the waiting lists because they couldn't manufacture the DFGT wheels fast enough for gt5, if this is a new wheel, you would probably be lucky to get one before Christmas.

I don't know if it is Sony or Logitech are at fault but they seem to point the finger at each other, and the fact that the Thrustmaster wheels are Sony's official wheel, there are way too much politics for me. As I own a perfectly good DFGT wheel, I cant justify the price for t300 let alone a t500 so I think I will go the route of Logitech leave the console gaming, sell my PS4 along with all my games and playstation plus subscription and I should be able to use the money and build a gaming computer and go back to gaming on my PC.

My ps3 logitech wheel is gathering dust in the loft. Regardless of whether its logitech or sony (or some software company with a draconian stand on use) who screwed us over by killing compatibility, logitech lost me as a customer. If the logitech and thrustmaster wheels were side by side on a shelf and i were in the market for a wheel, i would pick up the thrustmaster every time. The ps3 wheel would always remind me how logitech let us down. As someone else said, when the ps4 market was small they had no interest, when the problem of compatibility for old wheels arose they again publicly showed no interest, instead falling back on the 'we dont make wheels for ps4, so tough shit' approach. Now suddenly they are allegedly coming back for another bite at the cherry. I say feck em. Stay with the people who didnt leave you with a gamepad as your only route to driving.

Incidentally, i dont like how the wheel looks in the pictures. Looks somehow cluttered

If they hit that price point they're gonna kill Thrustmaster.

T80/T100 (I have the T80) are very cheap in a lot of ways, though I think they represent a pretty good value. They cut the right corners on these for the most part (the loud, clicky shifters are obnoxious though).

T300/500 are just absurdly priced. You're paying more for wheels/pedals than a PS4 retailed for at launch. While I'm sure the T300 is great, I'm personally not paying that kind of money for an accessory like this. The pedals/base look identical to that of the $99 T80 (which isn't too bad, but doesn't command a premium price at all). If there were some real differantiating features like an LCD screen, or a built in speaker or soemthing like that I'd say "ok maybe $400 isn't so bad it does this, that and the other thing". But it appears to be a really expensive minor upgrade over the $150 T100 overall. Not sure where that extra $250 went, at least from what I can see on paper.

A $200 option with FFB, leather wrap, PS interface buttons, LED tachometer, all from a trusted brand is a godsend at this point. There is nothing sitting in between the budget/premium Thrustmaster product lines right now (maybe the Fanatec wheels?). The market is there for the taking.

Most of the money for the T300 went into the wheel base. The wheel base is huge compared to the T100, or even the G27. It uses a rather large high quality motor. Nothing else is really worth writing home about honestly. If the G29 were to sell for $200, I can't imagine it being much if any better than the G27 in terms of FFB. The T300 base is simply much much better than the G27 base, in terms of performance at least, reliability is another matter. Is it worth $450? Maybe not, depending on your criteria. But I think Thrustmaster is a much smaller company than Logitech, and simply cannot produce products at the same scale to drive the cost of production down. If Thrustmaster had the resources of Logitech, they might be able to sell the T300 for $350-$400, and at that price it would be well worth the upgrade over a G27.

I used a G27 for like 5 years, and loved it. Never had a single problem with it. The T300 is much more finicky. When I had the G27 I thought the T300 was a joke. How does it warrant that ridiculous price, especially when it doesn't come with a clutch pedal set, shifter, and leather rim. I thought, the G27 is already quite good, the T300 can't be that much better. But it actually is quite a bit better. More than I thought it would be. Is it $200 better than the G27? Perhaps not, but in the grand scheme of things, I'm not going to miss a couple hundred dollars after a while. I also got my T300 on sale for $50 off.

The G27 and T300 are both great for their own reasons, but if you don't look at price the T300 is by far the better performing wheel. It would be disingenuous to say otherwise, in my opinion. Honestly though, if the G27 worked for the PS4 I would not have bought the T300, even having experienced first hand how much better the T300 is. But I'm still happy that I bought the T300 though. The G27 works just fine and its feel and performance is more than adequate. The T300 just takes it to another level.

Comparing the $250 G27 to the $450 T300 is also not quite correct. In order to bring the T300 onto the G27's level of features, you'd have to add the TH8A shifter, T3PA pedals, and TM 28 leather rim. That would easily double the original $450 of the wheel. So we're now talking a $250 G27 vs a $900 T300, but everything in that $900 T300 is going to be of significantly higher quality than in the $250 G27. Might not be worth almost 4 times the price, but higher quality nonetheless. I bought a $20 adapter to use the G27 pedals, so I don't have to get the T3PA, but I'm still on course to spend $700 for my T300 setup.

They look the same but they are not. The T300 pedals have relatively better quality/feel/functionality. That said the T300 cost did not go into the pedals because the internals are pretty shoddy. I can only imagine what the internals of the T80 pedals look like.

The Base is not remotely similar. I can probably use the t300 base to smash the t80 into tiny pieces.

The new box photo is the worse mock up yet and clearly fake. Look how the lower spoke bleeds into the grip. Not to mention the rim is a completely different shape. So What? Cobble together the prototype from the parts bin; Keep everything from the parts bin and use a new rim for production. Move from prototype to production with not a peep from Logitech or Sony (whose "officially licensed" product it is I might add) in less than a week. Then there is Sony officially licensing a race wheel without the GT logo (not likely), and GT 7 is nowhere in sight.

If the g29 exists and comes with three pedals, it wouldnt matter if it was the same price as a t300, people would buy it. Thrustmasters only mistake in my eyes is that you can only get it in two pedal setup and the rest is an upgrade. I would have preferred they did a boxed setup with no pedals so you could buy the others seperately.

"The T300RS provides an unrivalled immersion, for a pure connection with the road. A genuine brushless servo industrial Force Feedback motor (with frictionless action), combined with a new 1080 degree dual-belt system delivers super-smooth and quiet Force Feedback with incredibly responsive, realistic Force effects to really feel the road. The silence of the motor allows you to really focus on what matters - premium performance on the road. "

This servo motor is same in fanatec wheels. So T300 is a cheaper option for more expensive Fanatec. It is this reason why I may still buy the T300 over the G29. I hv always enjoyed my Logitech wheels, mainly for their durability. It would be the main reason why I may buy the G29 instead.

- a certificate issued by Novocert in Russia this month;
- virtualr.net said photo removed on Logitech’s request;
- amar the GT insider said: "Finally unveield, they really made a great job with keeping it under wraps. This is 100% production unit IMO";
- Ian Bell said on this forum on a Logitech PS4 support topic: "Be calm and wait for some good news here.";
- Game Director of Project Cars - Stephen Viljoen says on this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=888&v=1b8s0IxRFoU) "Logitech looking to expand their range, and we will be supporting that as well".;
- Logitech will have a booth at E3 2015.

This wheel looking good althrough I own Thrustmaster wheel. I drove many years with my old Logitech Driving Force (that very old one from 2003). Because missing Logitech wheel support I decide to buy Thrustmaster but this wheel looks interesting. Last month I tested G27 at store and hope that in future when they release G29 I can test it.

More Leaked Details on the Logitech G29 Driving Force Wheel

As you may have heard, news of Logitech’s return to the sim racing hardware market recently hit the web, with pictures of what appeared to be the G29 Driving Force. Now, more details and a new photo of the wheel’s packaging have leaked, via a report recently published by GameReactor.

According to their “sources close to Logitech”, the wheel will only be compatible with the PS3 and PS4. That leaves out the PC, which was famously well supported by the wheel’s predecessors, the G25 and G27.

It will reportedly be sold for €180 (that’s roughly $212 USD at current exchange rates), including a pedal set which closely resembles those shipped with the G25/G27. A shifter will be available as a separate add-on.

GameReactor’s source cites a full reveal of the wheel later this month, which would be expected, considering E3 – the gaming industry’s largest show – kicks off on June 16th.

Not new details, but yeah. I'm still a bit skeptical about the $200 price tag, despite Logitech's history of great value. But $200 would position it right in between cheap, bare bones options (like the T80/T100) and seemingly overpriced options like the T300 and Fanatec wheels.

“G29 Driving Force is the definitive sim racing hardware for the latest PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PC titles. Feature dual-motor force feedback and helical gearing for quiet, smooth steering. Stainless steel paddle shifters and RPM/Shift indicator LEDs help you make crisp, fluid gear transitions without taking your eyes off the track. The separate pedal unit gives you natural, responsive control with a nonlinear brake pedal. Driving Force is built for comfort and durability with hand-stitched leather and stainless steel components. Built-in clamps and bolt points allow the wheel to be mounted securely to a table or racing rig, minimising shifting or wobbling during aggressive manoeuvres.”

If Thrustmaster had the resources of Logitech, they might be able to sell the T300 for $350-$400, and at that price it would be well worth the upgrade over a G27.[/QUOTE]

Where did you get your pricing from? T300 are going to as low as $350 right now. Yes most are around $399, but you just have to hit it at the right time. Got mine for $342 on ebay, and it's worth every penny. If the price point of the G29 IS $200, and it has relative FFB between the G27 and the T300, then it's definitely well worth the price tag. It's an inbetween wheel, which most budget minded customers are looking for something that is strong enough (which it looks to be), Cheap enough (at $200 it is), and gives the FFB needed for the enjoyment of racing and driving.

From what I've read the G29 is for consoles only and not mainly for PCs. So this would be a plus for PS4 owners, or those wanting to get the PS4 and waiting for a cheaper wheel to come along aside from a 150.00 or higher bump in price to the T300.

$200 is the perfect price, even $250 for the G29 would be acceptable.

"G29 Driving Force is the ultimate racing simulator hardware that has been developed exclusively for the latest titles on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PC. The steering wheel impresses with force feedback with two motors and helical gears for smooth and silent steering maneuvers. The shifter and pedals in stainless steel as well as speed / shift indicator LEDs support quick and smooth gear changes, without you having to take your eyes off the track. The separate pedal unit with a non-linear brake pedal provides realistic and responsive control. Driving Force is due to the components of hand-stitched leather and stainless steel for comfort and durability. The integrated mounting brackets and mounting points, the steering wheel can be sure of a table or Racing Rig mount so it can not slip or wobble during aggressive driving maneuvers."

Looks like heaps of buttons, leather rim, metal 3 pedal setup. Like the sound of the gear change LEDs. Interestingly, my TX has some leds on it, I bet TM could re-appropriate those with a firmware update.

Upgrading a thrustmaster setup to this level costs hundreds extra. (I know, I've done it!)

I hope so but I have doubts because it only recently started and is worsening . I may Crack it open to see if I can optimize cooling. Funny thing is the reviews say the fan is loud as hell when it kicks in but I can hear both my projector and PS over the wheel. And they aren't particularly loud.

Yep, Amazon removed the page. Must be fake.

For me the solid proof is this pic taken from the new Need for Speed devs:

http://www.speedhunters.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Ghost-Games-01.jpg

It looks exactly like the other leaked pics.

I am hoping this is in the pipeline but why would a prototype wheel be in new packaging like that if the wheel or the packaging haven't made it to production yet?

It's real. pCARS Dev team has at least one in their studio. But because of NDA they can't talk about it.

If the fading issues continue mine could end up in the garbage. I'm willing to pay for reliability.


Pretty sure that's a software issue. I'm waiting till after the first patch to decide whether the T300 threads will slow down or if it's actually that big of a headache.


I hope so but I have doubts because it only recently started and is worsening . I may Crack it open to see if I can optimize cooling. Funny thing is the reviews say the fan is loud as hell when it kicks in but I can hear both my projector and PS over the wheel. And they aren't particularly loud. Then I don't have any of the other issues people talk about. I think those are user and setup related

once wheel centering is turned off, the fading should go away..
as it is now, the motors are ALWAYS trying to re-center the wheel. If you have your FFB set so it's strong, the Motors are getting too hot, and the strength fades.
Some T300's are actually Shutting Down, total loss of FFB, it comes back after they cool down...

For now the workaround is to reduce the FFB, or just wait for the patch. hopefully this is fixed in 1.4

But a G29 is till on my list. plus I'll add the Load cell Kit, and Spring Mods to the Pedals.

My vision of this G29 :
- Seems to be an old (but good) G27 system inside, just able to be compatible with PS4 but not at the same price...
- Too much buttons for me, not enough realistic like Fanatec wheels
- And that i can see from here, everybody will spend all is money into this new G29 to see few months later that the old G27 will be announced compatible on PS4 !

not possible..
the G27 does not have the PS, Share, or Option buttons, These are all required to be "PS4 Compatible"
so it can never be PS4 Compatible.

But it will be support in the Game, legacy peripheral support is left up to the developers.

just the like the Legacy Thrustmaster T500, and the PS3's T100 wheels are supported in the Game.

none of this will be officially announce until after the E3 introduction of the G29.

So while, we all know it's true, everyone in the know, is under a NDA, or Take down order from logitech,
( that's why we are seeing Vendors put up a web site for the G29, only to be taken down in the next days. "take it down or else!"

Logitech doesn't want anyone to spill the Beans and take away their Thunder..
plus, there are most likely some contractual and legal issues that Logitech is bound to with Sony.

Sony might have imposed a Time Specific date that Logitech can make the Unveiling and Announcement, and until then, everything released or leaked so far, is unofficial.

E3 will unveil the G29, and that Legacy Wheels will be support in the game on the PS4.

why do you think Logitech G has a booth at E3?

I would love a new Logitech wheel to be announced, but lets calm down a bit.

"Why do you think Logitech G has a booth at E3?"

Because its (one of) the biggest electronics expo year? They had one last year under their gaming brand (hence the G). Now it would make sense for them to announce any new products when they're there next week, but lets not overhype ourselves as if its set in stone.

By "compatible" i was meaning supported in games of course (sorry, French inside !)

Well according to http://www.projectcarsgame.com/beyond-reality.html the G27 will still not be supported on PS4 or X. Kind of understandable since this definitely would hurt sales.

299??? WTHeck?? They confirmed It's just a G27 with more buttons and compatible with the PS4, without a gear, and It's double the price of the G27?? With this money I would rather buy a T300, at least this Wheel has a reason for being expensive. Logitech lost a great opportunity to sell this Wheel at the same price of the G27 and dominate the Wheel market. Now I don't know if I will ever have a Wheel to play PCars. And I'm totally sure there will be no support for DFGT/G27, who would buy this crazy expensive G29 with equal Wheels at a much lower price?

Platy
11-06-2015, 12:03
The Logitech site lists the G27 for 290, but you can get it much cheaper elsewhere. Have to check sites when tht G29 is launched but I expect it to be cheaper than, well I hppe it is.

400$, plus more for the shifter and it only works on ps3 and ps4. Weird that it's not compatible with a pc. I was thinking of getting one even though I already have a fanatec gt3 but I think I'll pass now.

My bad, I read more and it is

It was confusing because on the logitech website it has the g29 for the ps3 and ps4 and the g920 for the Xbox one and pc. Plus I read on another site that it said it wasn't compatible on pc, but they updated it saying that it was now

They need to actually make some pedals first lol. If you're talking about the pro version that is?

Does anyone reckon there will be rim mods for this though?

It does look pretty awful. But, if it offers the reliability like the previous G series wheels, then this should make a fine addition to my setup.
C'mon E3!

The Thrustmaster has a couple of red flags for me. First of all, it sounds like something for exercising the pelvis to increase bedroom performance, and secondly the parent company Guillemot Corporation are French - a friend recently reminded me of a Clarkson quote that seems appropriate here, 'there are good cars, and there are French cars'.

madmax2069

At $399 USD I would have expected a H gate shifter as well to go along with that clutch pedal. The G29 seems like it should be $250-$299 USD max.

Looks like I'll have to look elsewhere for a wheel.

I'll stick with the T80 from here on out, $400 for one game is hilariously expensive.

I don't see it mentioned on the G29 website, so does anybody know what the diameter of the wheel is? It looks gigantic in the video, or they used a child/midget in the video.

LoBridge
11-06-2015, 15:07
I was holding out hope for this to be under $250 but $400 is way too much for me. I guess I will try to find a T100 but may just stick with the DS4. Shame.
