So it's been out since Oct, I'm looking at picking one up for myself within the month or sooner. Who's got one, what do you think? It looks likes it's much higher quality than the MOMO. Is it worth $299 though?

I don't have one, but I want one. I also want to know if it will work with the PS3. I'd like to add that the reviews of that model sounded a lot better. Apparently the older ones had problems with the pedals becoming worn after being depressed too many times. They would only go to about 90% of their range.

The G25 has a new gas shock type setup, so it sounds like it might fix that problem. If anyone has actually used it, I would like to know what you think as well.

Price is the only holding me back from upgrading from my Momo. How many games support the manual/clutch setup though? I know Carbon does.

Yup price is the only thing holding me back right now. I remember when the momo first came out, I think I paid $199 for it. I know GTR2, Richard Burns Rally, Carbon junk, rFactor, LFS all support 900deg wheel and the clutch and shifter. I think GTR and GTL patches are on the way or they already support it. The only complaint I've heard of so far is the wheel only has two buttons on it, the other 8 are on the shifter section so you have to take a hand off the wheel to hit some buttons, but that really doesn't bother me. I got huge bonus today. I could pay bills or buy xmas stuff, rrrrrigghhttt, Mmmm hope I'll have enough left for it. Well see, time to call public service and check the damage$.

Yea I've got a Logitech G25. It's a very very sweet piece of machinery.

The games I've used it with:

Live For Speed
GTR 2
rFactor

Those are the ones I play most often. I've tried it with GT Legends and Richard Burns Rally as well and it was pretty good with that too.

Take it from a guy that loves racing sims and I've owned 2 FF wheels previously, this thing is just too awesome. I got mine for only $220 + shipping too.

I got mine from NCIX.com, pre-ordered back in September and got it on like November 15th or something. Here you go:

http://www.us.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=20923&vpn=963416-0403&manufacture=Logitech

They're in Canada though (i'm in canada), so i'm not sure how much shipping to US would be.
