    Looking to buy steering wheel setup for PS3.

    I dont own a PS3 but my friend does, he has forza 3 and I really want to play it with a real $#@!ing steering wheel im tired of this controller bull$#@!.

    I am looking not to spend a ton of money, just a basic setup that is fun and reliable.

    Has to have gas pedal, brake and clutch too. Gamers please chime in.

    there are no good options. i got one last x-mas and it sucks, all the car does is turn in cirlces, even after recalibrating, and this one cost $250, so one that works and one thats cheap are not gonna be in the same sentance..

    Logitech G27. The best wheel in that price range, period.

    Not looking to spend 300 on a wheel. I heard about the G27, it looks badass but im not gonna need something that crazy.

    Do you have any experience with any of the cheaper models that just 'work' ?


    Forza 3 isnt even on this list of supported games for the G27.

    Oh, you said PS3. For Forza, you are $#@!ed. Guess what? The Microsoft wheel IS A $#@!ING JOKE! You don't understand how useless of a creation that thing is. It pisses me off just thinking about how many customers the tricked into buying that piece of $#@!.

    To be honest man, you aren't going to get anything worth-wile below a used G25, but that won't work on 360 anyway. (at least not that I know of.)

    For 360, your cheapest option that is worth anything is Fanatec.

    Actually, I just found out there is a option that will allow you to use a PS3 controller (G27) on 360. The XCM Crossfire adapter.


    Ok, new best solution for Xbox360. For the cheapest route, buy a used G25 and buy a XCM Crossfire adapter. If you are PS3, the G25 or G27 will plug straight in.

    I am not using a 360, I am using a PS3 with Forza 3.

    And on the logitech website it shows that Forza 3 is not supported in the list of games.

    Wait nevermind, it is an xbox 360. LOL it's my friends, I forgot what it was for a second.

    In that case..

    The fanatec is nice, but still pricey. Is there anything cheaper?

    lol WOW, I had a complete mind$#@! there for a second......

    XCM Crossfire + used G25. Although, if it was me, I'd get the G27.

    Do some research on that combo though, not sure how well it works. The Logitech G25 and G27 are the BEST wheels for the money though. Anything cheaper doesn't have force feedback (absolutely needed) or a clutch pedal.

    I just hope if i get the XCM it doesnt $#@! up the signal to the G25 and make the steering wheel do weird things, these signal converters always $#@! up somehow.

    That's what I'm worried about as well and why I'm skeptical of recommending it to you. I say do some research of people who have actually used it and see if they say it works great.

    If not, go Fanatec.

    The controller pisses me off.

    The steering on the left stick is like on/off. I dont know how to adjust the sensitivity either, its like it wants to turn in and do donuts or go straight. There is no modulation and its pissing me the $#@! off. Im trying to win this A-class Euro championship with my twin turbo M5 and FUUUUU....

    They had a demo where a guy was driving "Forza 4" using Kinect, with a virtual wheel, but it was kind of retarded.

    Using this to allow you to walk around your garage and look around in cockpit view would be AWESOME though!

    I agree, I need to have the feedback of a steering wheel.

    Too much for the G27. I dont even own the xbox, its my friends and i only play it when i visit him. I just wanted the wheel temporarily because that $#@!ing controller is impossible to drive with.
