Logitech G29 Force Feedback Racing Wheel Announced for PS4, PS3

June 11, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

Leaked last month, Logitech officially confirmed the G29 Force Feedback Racing Wheel, which is priced at $399.99 USD and compatible with the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC.

Shipping in July, the G29 includes dual-motor force feedback, 900-degree steering, helical gearing with anti-backlash, and more:

Dual-Motor Force Feedback

  • Feel Every Weight Shift, Brake Fade, or Tire Slip: Feel your tires on every turn and type of terrain, sense under- or over-steer drifting and more. Powerful dual-motor force feedback realistically simulates force effects so you can respond with precision.

Quality Construction

  • Race-Ready Materials That Can Handle it All: Driving Force handles the stress of racing action and is built for long-lasting reliability. G29 has solid steel ball bearings in the wheel shaft and stainless steel paddle shifters and pedals. The race wheel is covered in high-quality, hand-stitched leather, giving it the look and feel of a high-performance racecar wheel and giving you a more comfortable, durable experience.

Helical Gearing With Anti-Backlash

  • Tight, Smooth, Precise Control: You get an exceptionally smooth, quiet steering action. Helical gears are modeled after gears used in automotive transmissions to reduce unwanted noise and vibration. Anti-backlash keeps the wheel and pedals tight, maximizing your control.

Easy-Access Game Controls

  • Control Right at Your Fingertips: All your controls are where you can reach them. The D-Pad, buttons and paddle shifters are incorporated into the racing wheel. LED indicator lights positioned just above the center of the wheel tell you exactly when to up- or down-shift. You maintain maximum acceleration without taking your eyes off the track. A 24-point selection dial and the +/- buttons on the front of the wheel let you further fine-tune your driving preferences.

900-Degree Steering

  • For Realistic Turns on the Track: The 900-degree lock-to-lock rotation of the G29 Driving Force means you can turn the wheel two and a half times. It’s the same degree of motion as a steering wheel inside a car.

You can check out full details, specifications, and pre-order information for the G29 over on Logitech’s website.

Ujesh Desai, VP and GM of the Logitech gaming business, said, “Our fans have been asking for a PS4 wheel since launch of the system. For the past 18 months we have been working with Sony to deliver a fully-licensed racing wheel and I am excited to announce it today.”

In a couple tweets, Paul Rustchynsky confirmed the G29 will work with DriveClub and Slightly Mad Studios confirmed the G29 will work with Project CARS.
