    advice needed

    morning pertrol heads, I'm thinking of buying a wheel and poss a rig. Any advice appreciated. Cheap as buttons, works on PC and PS would be good, but not show stopper. Had a look at the second hand market and seems to be about £150 all in.

    I'm not sure how much use it will get but I want to dip my toe. I blame Worlds Fastest Gamer on Ginx!

    Hi Benny,
    Have a look at this: https://www.windowscentral.com/logit...9-racing-wheel The G920 is not compatible with the PS, as far as I can tell.
    I'd recommend the G29 according to that article, although they both are very similar, The G29 has more features and PS compatible. I don't have experience with either though. I use the Predecessor, the G27 (which is very good and has lasted years with much, much use ) .

    I think if you could get a second hand G27 for cheap that would also be cool (although PS4 compatibility is not straight forward, see below). One big advantage of the G27 is that it comes with a H-Pattern Shifter. However, you can now buy separate shifters too, i.e. Logitech do a nice one for about £35 https://www.scan.co.uk/products/logi...SABEgJfqfD_BwE

    Amazon G29: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Logitech-Dr...08&sr=8-2&th=1
    Worth shopping around especially this time of year or January. I think prices and deals will vary greatly on the G29 as it is a few years old now.

    Article about G27 compatibility with PS4 : https://www.psu.com/news/does-logite...work-with-ps4/

    Wheel options for less than the G29/920 will most likely only have a brake and throttle, no clutch. Lots of sims support the use of the Clutch these days, which I think adds a large amount of fun and options to the driving experience. Also, a lot of the cheaper wheel sets will have cheaper plastic pedals, which wont feel as nice.

    was going to pipe in with some helpful comment, but as the ones above answer the question, so my 5p is

    had a g27 then went to a g29, never played it on the console, but it is epic on the PC.

    Also for whatever game you play with it on the pc, there will be a guide on youtube about how to get the best out of it for said game


    I came into this world with nothing,
    through careful management I've got most of it left.

    I have the G27, I found it on warehouse repair from Amazon for cheap, sometimes they pop up. The G29 is prepbably better value than the G27 was originally, as the 27 was way over priced.
