Logitech puts out force feedback Wii wheel

Logitech Speed Force Wii

Logitech started Thursday by introducing the Speed Force Wireless, a wheel controller it boasts as the first to support force feedback on Nintendo's Wii console. The feature is officially sanctioned by Nintendo and will first see use in EA's Need for Speed Undercover, which will rumble the wheel based on road conditions and other in-game events. More games should support the feature soon, Logitech promises.

The wheel is also designed to be as comfortable as possible with both the 2.4GHz, RF-based wireless eliminating a cable and an extendable lap board fitting most users without special tricks. All the controls, including the gas/brake controls and normal Wii input, are built into the one unit instead of relying on a separate pedal add-on.

Logitech ships the Speed Force Wireless in time for the Need for Speed sequel's launch and will sell it for $100 in November.
