    So. . .

    I am looking to get myself a racing wheel, but have no idea whatsoever what hardware is any good.

    What would be the wheel of choice these days?
    Preferably one that works both on the PS3 and the PC. (In case they don't do that anyway)

    Thanks for the tip.
    There seem to be a lot of CSR models though ranging from expensive to ridiculous in price. Anything I should keep in mind? At what price point do the wheels become decent and when do I start to pay for the name?

    So I guess the previous advice still stands?

    I've finally moved into a place where I have space for a wheel so want to pick one up, it seems they've actually gotten rarer and more expensive with time though, and not too keen on picking up a used one on ebay.

    I guess there'll be a bunch of new ones announced for GT6, should probably stay patient...

    I second the Fanatec CSR. Works with both PC, PS3 and 360. Wirelessly on the 360 even.

    The precision is outstanding and the force feedback is incredible. In Forza 4 even small things like driving over road stripes can be felt. It really is worth the money if you play a lot of driving games.

    I have had 3 wheels and I have used them all at some point for a large amount of time.

    Logitech Driving Force Pro.
    Slow/Weak/Small/Loud, Don't bother with this. Really, don't.

    Logitech Driving Force GT
    Massive step up on the DFP. Quicker, stronger, far more definition in what you feel. Much quieter and enjoyable to use.

    I'd recommend this if you want a simple very easy to use wheel that is near enough perfect for any racing game.

    It also only costs about 100, so it's reasonably affordable too. I've had mine for 3 years now and not a single thing is wrong with it.

    Thrustmaster T500RS

    Recently got this one. Quite honestly it's not a gigantic step up from the DFGT, but it does everything better. The pedals are much better than those of the DFGT and the FFB is so much stronger. The wheel is quieter too.

    Personally I'd recommend the Driving Force GT. It's easily the best price / performance wheel. It will last ages, FFB is well defined and there are plently of buttons on it.

    Another recommendation for the CSR (with Elite Pedals + H Shifter + stand), I got a bundle which was well worth it if they still do it.

    I went through 3 wheels originally (1 bricked, 2nd DOA) and am now on 2nd power supply but still willing to recommend as Fanatec support have been superb. With each wheel they sent a new wheel before I returned the dead one and then arranged a courier to pick up the 2 dead wheels. Just recently I sent a video to support showing my power supply had died, emailed on Sunday, new power supply arrived Wednesday, not bad for Germany to UK.

    Looks like my old but perfectly functional Formla force EX is destined for obscurity then, works on pc, Ps2 and occasionally supported on ps3 games. 😞
