MS Steering Wheel
« on: March 09, 2010, 10:40:37 AM »
Anyone have any experience with this product?  I use the Logitech Drive Force GT with my PS3 race games, and that's because I'm not very good with the hand controller  :'(

My brother-in-law is a big racing fan.  I bought him the 360 racing wheel last year for his birthday.  He loves it.

I tried it out a few times.  I'm not a fan of racing games, but it did make it more fun.  The Force Feedback is awesome, but crazy frustrating at the same time.

I guess it all depends on the view you use while driving.  I don't see how people can play the game viewing the car from behind, it changes everything that comes natural to driving.

I played some GRID in first-person / driver view.  The crash physics were so real, they made me cringe.  I have to play racing games in third-person / aerial view or I get dizzy.   :-\

LOL dizzy.  Seems like that's the way it was for me initially.

Shift is kinda cool in that the harder you crash the more blurred the vision is, like you lost focus and color turns to black/white, the effect lasts longer the harder you crash too.
