Logitech Unveils the G29 Driving Force Racing Wheel for PS4 and PS3
No matter how well-designed and developed racing games are, you simply would not be able to enjoy them to the fullest just by using a conventional DualShock controller – which is where Logitech’s G29 Driving Force racing wheel comes in.
Logitech says that the G29 racing wheel is able to simulate and replicate the sensations you would feel while driving a car, including that of oversteering and understeering. As a matter of fact, even the virtual potholes and the weight of your car shifting mid-corner are also accurately accounted for.
All the necessary controls you will need in and out of your race are conveniently placed on and around the face of the G29 Driving Force racing wheel, and it includes a directional pad, a semi-automatic paddle shifter and the familiar suite of console controller buttons. The full-bodied racing experience is further supplemented by the presence of LED indicator lights placed right above the center of the G29, which visually tells you the best time to shift gears.
Rounding off the Logitech G29 is a separate floor pedal unit that consists of a clutch, brake and accelerator pedal. They work and feel exactly how like a real car’s does, especially the brake pedal, which is said to adopt the performance of a real-life pressuresensitive brake system to make the simple act of breaking as realistic as possible.
You won’t have to worry about wrecking the G29 either, as placed within its wheel shaft are solid steel ball bearings, and its pedals and paddle shifters are made entirely out of stainless steel. Furthermore, the G29 can be fastened onto a table or racing seat to hold it in place while you pull off the most reckless and jarring of racing maneuvers.
The Logitech G29 Driving Force will be available in September for the PS4 and PS3. Its price will only be announced as its release date draws closer.
