Logitech G29 Force Feedback Racing Wheel Announced for PS4, PS3

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.
