If you are serious about your racing simulators, then you probably already own a game wheel. Heck, if you are like some hard core race sim gamers we know you own MULTIPLE wheels. Well you might as well add another one on to your “gotta have” list. The all new Porsche 911 GT2 from Fanatec not only is a faithful recreation of the iconic Porsche 911 GT2 wheel it is also platform agnostic and will work equally well on XBox 360 (in wireless configuration no less. ), PS3 or even you PC. While the XBox users get wireless abilities, you will have to plug it in to a free USB port on your PlayStation or PC.
Some other nifty features which will help get your game on is the fact that it will work with your Logitech G25 / G27 pedals. Add in support for 5 unique wheel set-ups, leather wrapped steering wheel and three force feedback for added realism and you have the makings of one killer gaming peripheral. While the gaming wheel is available for purchase right now, you may want to save up your pennies as the base Fanatec Porsche 911 GT2 goes for a cool $250 and the deluxe “Porsche 911 GT2 Clubsport edition” (which comes with numerous extra goodies) goes for a staggering $450.
