Am I reading this right and getting the impression Logitech are announcing a new wheel? For a moment I initially thought it was a compatibility announcement, hence the #KeepPlaying line, but then Sony have now done that themselves. Very curious to see what it is

So, it is confirmed the G29 will work on Ps5 right??
Just double checking before buying it.
Thanks!

it's not confirmed, wait for Logitech word, they will launch a new wheel also,

my bet is that the g29 will not work with the ps5, which you will need to buy the new wheel they will announce this week.

So no actual answer yet as their blog includes this "Please note, not all PlayStation officially licensed or third-party peripherals/accessories may work on PS5. We recommend checking with the manufacturer to confirm whether a product will work on PS5 and specific titles. "

Yeah, basically they are giving responsability for the compatibility to the manufacturers.
The next announcement from logitech should confirm that.

Good luck anyone trying to sell their second hand G29 if Logitech announce tomorrow that its not compatible with PS5. Ive been watching the prices on Ebay, crazy high prices for 2nd hand this year. Sometimes its cheaper to buy it new!!!

Great news, so for example for GT7 should work, unless GT7 rules it out for some reason

Well we of course have to still work with Polyphony to ensure support, but they have the G29 and the newly announced G923 already (they already support the G923's new Trueforce feature in GT Sport).

So the G923 is a replacement for the separate PC/PS and Xbox wheels. Meaning one wheel will support both consoles and PC? Thats how a read the ad.

Hi LOGI_RICH,

I just had a conversation with the support from Logitech, but they can't confirm yet that the G29 will work on PS5.

Can you give some more info on how you know and they don't?

Can we contact you on your Logitech mail? Just to be sure the info is correct and no people are buying a not compatible wheel.

Thanks.

Support were operating off messaging that meant that we couldn't confirm things either way with regards to PS5. I suspect the updated note that resulted from Sony's announcement on Monday hasn't filtered through to everyone yet so I'll check on that.

The info is correct though - that official wording is precisely that: official.

It would be great if we could see it on an official Twitter/Facebook account or website
If you don't believe the "Global Product Manager for Simulation at Logitech G," who exactly will you believe?

I can confirm he's using a Logitech email.

It's a fair comment and you will start to see the messaging on social. The social team are based on West Coast US though so not just yet!

That's because it is ultimately Sony's call and not Logitech's, as was explained earlier.

Thanks for your input into the situation @LOGI_Rich.

Fantastic news, can't wait to try GT7 and should the reviews of the new wheel sound like it is a significant upgrade I can't wait to support Logitech again!

@LOGI_Rich Thankyou!

Its all good new for G29 and the newer G923 for compatibility with older and up coming consoles.... but .... its still on final approval of Sony.
I would be very surprised now if its not all approved ok , but its still not definite.. yet.
