Logitech is launching two new high-end racing wheels

Logitech has announced that it is launching two new force feedback racing wheel peripherals soon for both PC and consoles. One appears to be PlayStation branded and intended for use with the PS4 while the other brandishes the Xbox logo, although both will work with the PC anyway.

The PS4 model is called the G29 Driving Force, which also works on the last generation PS3 and the PC. It features dual motor force feedback, steel pedals and a leather wrapped steering wheel. The wheel features lots of dials and buttons for mapping different controls.

The second wheel announced today is the G920 Driving Force, which comes with Xbox branding. Unlike the PS4 wheel, this one won’t be compatible with the last generation Xbox 360, sticking to the One, although it will work on PC as well. It has similar features, although this model comes with an optional driving force shifter, which is a manual gear stick.

However, the G920 won’t come with LEDs on-board or driving dial tweakers in order to customize the handling of the wheel, unlike the G29 so there is a trade off. In the UK, both wheels will cost £299, which is pretty expensive. In the US it costs $399.

KitGuru Says: I’m not a big racer myself but I imagine the experience is pretty good with a dedicated wheel peripheral. Are any of you guys serious about your racing sims? Looking for a new wheel any time soon?

Briony goes POSTAL – and cuts up GAMING CHAIRS!

Briony has reviewed a lot of gaming chairs in her time with KitGuru and she has always wanted to see what was inside them. She wanted to cut up her OWN 18 month old Noblechair - and we asked Noblechairs if they would like to come along when we cut the hell out of it with a stanley knife. They said 'sure no problem' we will bring you a new one too and watch you cut it up. We also bought a no name 'cheap' gaming chair from Amazon - just to see if there was any difference at all. Is it all a CON?
