PS3 Steering Wheel (GS)
Great buy for the money
First off, I was only looking for a steering wheel for Midnight Club LA and I only play that game every-so-often. Not many, if any, reviews were for a steering wheel for MC-LA. Next, setting this up was not as easy as a "plug in and play" wheel. I did have to go to the settings of the game and set each pedal and button but it only took about 15 minutes. Most knocks against this wheel was that after a while, the buttons won't work. I figured out that it was the "telephone" connection between the steering wheel and pedals. If you just unplug it and plug it back in, everything works fine. Also, when you turn off the game/system, make sure that the LED light in the middle is on Player 1. It won't turn on the PS3 so after turning on the system and the game, turn off the controller and switch the wheel over. Even though this wheel has some quirks, for $59.99, this wheel is definitely worth it if you are looking for a more authentic feeling to a racing game without breaking the bank. Hopefully this helps!!!!
As others have said there is a huge dead spot in the wheel. This wouldn't be a big deal if games would actually recognize it as a steering wheel(so you could adjust settings.) Unfortunately I have tried the wheel on GT5 and F1 2012 and both of them treat the wheel as if it were a regular controller. I cant speak to the durability as I quit using it pretty quickly. Not worth sixty dollars.
PLEASE DONT BUY
this thing sucks i had this thing for a WEEK and it already broke the gas pedals are gud but the steering wheel sucks u have to turn it about three inches to get the car to turn a little i tryed this with midnight club L.A at first it was gud then it got worst everyday i kept it i am going to return this tommorow and i am mad so if they dont give me my money back im going to be even madder this thing suck and if u buy it it will seem gud at first but it will get worst everyday I WORNED U
This is a review for the gamestop racing wheel I got yesterday and think is better than the logitech. Awesome performance good hand grips.Works with driver san Francisco,grand truism 5,need for speed shift. Good job gamestop This is my third wheel trying out by far this wheel is the best of all two i have tried.
PLEASSSEEEEEE DONT WAIST YOUR MONEY ON THIS
This steering wheel is made to suck you in with the cheap price but let me explain something to anyone looking for a good wheel for a good price.... THERE IS NO SUCH THING.... this wheel is the cheapest piece of junk i have ever had. i have had this thing for 3 weeks i have used it 3 or 4 times and the gas is stuck and the wheel dont work. i would return it but i was so frustrated that i waisted 80 dollars on this junk that i broke it in 5 pieces. anyone thinking about buying this thing please take note that you have been warned and i would be willing to make a personal bet that it will be broke withen 2 months at the most. ill never buy anything else made by gamestop again
50% dead on hi sensitivity mode
have to turn the wheel with the triangle facing the air or the O facing the air to get it to turn. It will not pick you moving it until you reach that part. It not pick up your turn half the time and other times it over corrects. Leading you to spin in GT5 . I do not notice a difference between hi mid or lo sensitivity mode. all of it is about the same more then 50% wide open to turn.
Help M :( Its Killing Me!
When I bought this steering wheel I thought it was a good steering wheel. After a week or so it wont turn on it flashes (green and red) over and over again somone pease hellp! I really dont want to be wasting my money on stupid things like this shipload of sh**t
PIECE OF GRAP!!!!!!!!!
I bought the wheel and when I was playing GT5 the shifter broke right off under my hand
HORRIBLE!! DO NOT BUY!!
I had bought this wheel for Gran Turismo 5 thinking I was getting a good deal.... but I was wrong. I plugged it in and the first thing I noticed was the massive dead zone on the wheel and pedals. You can turn the wheel 3 inches in either direction and nothing will happen, and the pedals can be pressed down about an inch and nothing will happen. DO NOT BUY THIS WHEEL!!! GET A DRIVING FORCE GT!!!
Not Bad For Price $$$80.00
I got it for my b day it was working perfect and the built quality was not bad for 80 bucks... But i could not afford Logitech DFGT so got this,It may not be really responsive but its fun to play games, Pedals are sort of bad and squeek but over all 7/10
