G27 Racing Wheel Set

Logitech is one of the gaming peripheral industry’s leaders – its G25 racing wheel was an enormous hit among Playstation players. Now, fans of racing games will be revved up to hear about Logitech’s upgrade – the G27 Racing Wheel for the Playstation 3.

Gamers will love the added bits of functionality to their favorite racing wheel, which include:

  • Six buttons on the wheel face — that’s four more than the G25′s.
  • Diagonal-cut gears. The G25 only had straight-cut gear shifting capabilities, which means the G27 racing wheel offers faster game play and an even bigger adrenaline rush.
  • It’s now even easier to customize the pedals.
  • More lights! The G27 Racing Wheel will have 10 LED lights that are designed to warn the player about RPM, redline, or the need to shift gears.

The G27 Racing Wheel will come off market shelves at $300, which might be a little pricey for some gamers, but the upgraded bits of functionality makes it worth every penny. What’s more, the G27 is compatible with PC’s and the Playstation 2.

We’re also expecting prices of the G25 to drop sharply when the G27 starts shipping out.
