No don't be; I should try to be more precise in my posts. But GT is indeed the king of driving games!

That isn't true. MS allows 3rd party wireless devices, so long as the 3rd party pays the industry standard attachment fee. Don't blame MS, blame your cheap 3rd party.

Has their policy changed? The last I heard MS wouldn't allow third party wireless devices.

That article is from 2006, but I don't remember reading about them changing their minds.

GT is the king of racers and these additions will solidify it. Just look at how some of the most recent racers like Forza 2 and even Dirt cant match up to GT4 release nearly two years ago.

Care to elaborate?

IMO, looks like GT is having to play catch-up and finally offer up some damage and online capability. Don't get me wrong, I was a HUGE GT fan, but beyond that nothing was really added to the series. I liked GT2 the best, with 3/4 tied. 4 would have been my favorite if I didn't have to go through the same licensing bull**** with every game and not just transfer off of my 3 saved game.

Is the ?g25? racing wheel wireless?

Doesn't look like it http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/pr...11867#Features

Logitech simply doesn't want to pay MS to get it to work on their console.

The whole damage thing wasn't under their control IIRC because they couldn't get the car licenses if they allowed damage, so they didn't have damage. Personally I prefer no damage because it takes away from game if you mess up a corner your basically screwed or if the computer rear ends your car that might cause an issue as well. It will be interesting to see how they set that aspect up.

I really hope that Logitech has plans for a Bluetooth PS3 wheel that crosses the extra buttons on the DFP with the G25. It would be the king of wheels.
