Logitech intros G27 wheel

Logitech on Monday announced the upcoming launch of its G27 Racing Wheel. Designed as a higher-end controller meant to replicate conventional cars, it replaces the sequential shifter from some previous Logitech wheels with a traditional six-speed H-pattern and a clutch pedal in the pedal box. Moreover, a new shift indicator cluster with LEDs let users know when to up- or downshift.

Force feedback is delivered thanks to two motors that both avoid unintentional vibration but which are advanced enough to signal a shift in a car's weight during a turn or its loss of grip.

Made to work with Sony's PlayStation 2 and 3 as well as PCs, the wheel has 900-degree rotation that translates to 2.5 turns lock-to-lock. There are sixteen programmable buttons between the shift cluster and steering wheel, plus the D-pad. Logitech's G27 will ship in Europe and the US in September with a price of $300.
