Best Buy selling Logitech Wheel for PS3 for $50. Should I buy?

#1 Posted by AndrewGaspar (2418 posts) -

Hey! Best Buy is selling this wheel for only $50. It supports these games. I own Burnout Paradise, Need for Speed Carbon, and Ridge Racer 7, and I would consider buying Gran Turismo 5 Prologue.

Does anybody own a driving wheel? Is it worth it? Is it more fun to play the game that way?

I've used a wheel before and personally I think it is a lot less fun and harder to control.

I wouldn't recommend a wheel for Burnout, or any super arcady racer. Need for Speed I'm not too sure of, but Gran Turismo would do well assuming the wheel is good. Either-way, it'll be a good gaming experience to just own a wheel and use it, and at that price you probably wont have a better chance.

 I'd only recommend getting if you do pick up GT5: Prologue and future Gran Turismo games. It's pretty useless in most other games.

Alright, I'll take your advice. I'll get this and pick up Gran Turismo 5 Prologue.
