Logitech G27 Racing Wheel Force Feedback, 6-Button Steering Wheel Buttons, Steel Pedals, Shift Indicator Lights

When it comes to playing racing-type games on your gaming console there
is nothing that adds to the realism like a well-made steering wheel
controller. Heading into the turns while gripping the leather-wrapped
wheel and clutching the shift knob with sweaty, expectant hands
transports you to a world of burning rubber and exhaust fumes faster
than a Grand Prix race. The purveyors of peripherals at Logitech have
just announced the release of their recently upgraded G27 Racing Wheel
controller and it's sure to have the speed freaks shaking with
anticipation.

The Logitech G27 Racing Wheel marks an upgrade to the popular G25 model.
It features a dual-motor force feedback mechanism with helical gearing
so you can actually experience traction loss, weight shift, and road
feel right through the steering wheel. One of the most significant
upgrades over the G25 is the addition of RPM/shift indicator LEDs.
They'll let you know just when to shift gears for maximum torque (in
supported games).

The Logitech G27 Racing Wheel has sixteen programmable buttons plus a
D-pad. You can map useful game functions to locations that make sense to
you-whether on the wheel itself or on the shift module. The
leather-wrapped wheel has 900-degree rotation so you can turn 2.5 times
around lock-to-lock, just as you would behind the wheel of many real cars.

The pedals of the G27 are constructed of realistic steel and feature
sturdy true-to-life action that delivers precise throttle, braking, and
shifting control for heightened realism. There are also retractable
teeth in the bottom of the pedal control box to prevent it from sliding
around on carpeted floors. The G27 works with PC, PlayStation2, and
PLAYSTATION3 racing games, including Gran Turismo 5 Prologue. It is
available for pre-order at www.logitech.com for $299.99.
