    Logitech releases direct drive wheels.

    I'm curious about this.

    Having lusted for Fanatec, and loving my trusty old G29, I like the proposition of a Logitech DD.

    I was interested until I saw the price. With the pedals, it's going to be nearly 1300 and that makes it a very tough sell IMHO. Hopefully the price will come down and Logitech release more wheels for it, which should help it shift some units.

    Ye au$1500 for the wheel + $600 for the pedal set is a big ask.

    Costs way more than Fanatec DD bundles now just based off RRP on their homepage.

    Fanatec gear looks the biz too. But Fanatec's reputation for after-sales support and delivery times are the big turn off for me.

    It's going to take a LONG time before I buy another Logitech gaming device. Regardless of how good the hardware is, their QA in software is beyond terrible. They also like to deprecate products with no notice.

    I'm a console pleb. Still.

    But I did have a quick crack at r3e on a pc. Had to download g-hub and all that jazz. It's a bit clunky.

    My little old G29 is still going strong after 6 years and if that (almost) plug-play and compatibility is there, it's tempting.

    Not likely that the DD is compatible with ps4 or pcars2. I wouldn't want to buy the wheel then have it get dusty while I upgrade everything else.

    Might just stick with a csl for the trouble!
