The G25 also gets very hot during gaming!
Thats because you play on it for 14 hours straight. :p

Doesnīt have plastic internals that can melt though. ;) IIRC, The G25 runs cooler when you reduce the strength of the ForceFeedback. Maybe MS should have mounted weaker FFB motors that donīt produce so much heat or simply lower the strength setting.

I don't blame MS too much for this, since they don't actually manufacture the products. Atleast they are admiting to this issue...

who makes the wheel?

I know gamepads are made by Foxconn

even if it is not MS who designs/makes the hardware, they are the one who gets the black eye for it because it's their name all over it.
