i'm in the same boat. I've had an xbox for awhile and bought Forza 3, but I felt that the game wasn't deserving enough for a new wheel. Now that Forza 4 is out...i'm DESPARATE for an Xbox wheel! The game is so good, I feel that playing it with a controller doesn't do it justice. Don't get me wrong, i'm still having alot of fun with the pad.
But anyway, i've been contemplating as to what wheel to get. If I should get the GT2 CLUBSPORT Edition from Fanatec, or just get the CSR Wheel + CSR Elite Pedals + CSR Shifter. Or should I hold out and wait for the CSR Elite?
Anyway, I think i'm going to eventually sell my G25 and buy a Fanatec wheel so I can enjoy both worlds!
Any of the wheels from fanatec are AMAZING!!!. I ordered the pwts when forza 3 released and while it was expensive it is worth every penny. There is nothing like the force feedback and tuning options that this wheel offers plus it spans all platforms.
I don't know who owns "Force Feedback" but as far as I know, Immersion Corporation is the company responsible for most Force Feedback technology. If you know your gaming, you would know this is the company that sued (and won) both MS and Sony for infringing on the use of rumble feedback in gamepads. It's the reason why there was no DS3 when PS3 was first release.
Also Logitech works closely with Immersion for most of their haptic based product including all their FF steering wheels. I don't what's behind MS decision to not use the same Directinput API (which it developed with Immersion) on the 360 instead of the more limiting Xinput. Actually, I do know: Money.
I heard that the new Madcatz wheel will be using the Immersion technology.If this is true Madcatz may actually have a decent wheel now.
