F1 2009 bundles free Wii wheel

Fantastic plastic deal Europe-only.

Codemasters will, for a limited time, give all Europeans buying F1 2009 on Wii a free racing wheel peripheral.

The plastic accessory is rectangular, just like the real thing, and will be sold with the game in a satisfying cardboard box.

North America will not be offered this, although we're not sure whether that means there will be a similar offer or nothing at all.

The announcement arrives alongside the first Wii F1 2009 gameplay trailer and screenshots. Both show off the Valencia street circuit, which appears in F1 2009 for the first time - and is being raced for real this weekend.

F1 2009 will be released on Wii this autumn. PC, PS3 and 360 versions will be out next year.

Look at all that!
