Even though Logitech’s upcoming G29 has not been officially announced or even confirmed to be existing yet, the upcoming new wheel is probably the worst-kept secret in the virtual racing world right now.
As we’re low on solid facts ahead of the wheel’s expected late June announcement, various rumors are circulating around the net right now, including yesterday’s story about the G29 supposed not coming with PC compatibility.
Now, a few hard facts have surfaced as the G29 already has a temporary listing on Amazon, including some product details.
- The definitive sim racing wheel for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3
- Dual-motor force feedback to simulate realistic driving
- Smooth, quiet and precise steering action
- Durable leather/metal components
While the feature list specifically only mentions Playstation support (in accordance with yesterday’s news), there’s a mention of PC compatibility in the included product description:
G29 Driving Force is the definitive sim racing hardware for the latest PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PC titles. Feature dual-motor force feedback and helical gearing for quiet, smooth steering. Stainless steel paddle shifters and RPM/Shift indicator LEDs help you make crisp, fluid gear transitions without taking your eyes off the track. The separate pedal unit gives you natural, responsive control with a nonlinear brake pedal. Driving Force is built for comfort and durability with hand-stitched leather and stainless steel components. Built-in clamps and bolt points allow the wheel to be mounted securely to a table or racing rig, minimising shifting or wobbling during aggressive manoeuvres.
The wheel is rumored to retail for 189€, coming without a stick shifter that is due to be available as an addon purchase.
