Looking to get into racing games again and I just wanted to know what's a decent wheel I can get that's not too expensive but not crap too. I am also looking for one that can work with the PS3 and the 360, if there is one.
As far as I know, nope. USB-racing wheels don't work with the Xbox 360 (except the actual licensed one from Microsoft). Many PC racing wheels are compatible with the PS3, but none of them work for the 360. Obviously the official Microsoft racing wheel wouldn't work with the PS3.
Your best bet is to wait for a good price on two different racing wheels (i.e. Microsoft's and a second one). Sorry. Unless of course, somebody happens to find one (and I wouldn't mind retracting this post, if so).

My friend just bought the Microsoft wheel and it's fine. The pedals were slipping around on the floor a bit while we played Forza 2 but the wheel itself was pretty good. I think playing with the wheel--even being a lot harder--is way more fun. Even when I spin out and crash, it's still a good time.
" @Diamond: No. It just seems to me it will be more natural to play with a racing wheel. "
The only wheel I know of that works with the 360 and the PS£ is the Porsche GT3 RS Fanatec wheel, and i'm not sure that's even out yet. It's the only decent wheel for the 360 since Microsoft didn't make the Logitech G25 compatable with it. It costs a bomb though, over £200. ($300ish I think). G25's you can get for £125 now and they work with PS3 and PC. It's a great wheel, i'm typing this over one right now.
" @clubsandwich said:It's not very effective, it actually makes the games harder to play." I wouldn't recomment the wheel too much, especially for the 360, it's fun but completely useless. "Ok, I'll take your word for it. Just for curiosity, what's wrong with the 360 wheel? "
