A leak of Logitech's new wheel for gamers has shown up, designed to be compatible with the PS4 but also of interest to PC gamers who have picked up one or more of the recently released driving games. It looks to be based on the Driving Force GT and in the leaked pictures is a box for a shifter which could be good news for those who already own Logitech pedals and shifters as the are likely compatible with the new wheel. If your steering wheel is getting a bit beat up hold off on picking up a new one as the G29 could be out very soon.

"The pictures first surfaced on Maxconsole.com, along with a copy of a certificate of approval, written in what appears to be Russian. There’s nothing to determine a launch date for the G29, but sometime during 2015 would be a reasonable expectation – people, including myself, have been vexing for a decent yet affordable setup for the Playstation 4 for some time now."

Im very excited about this.
Im very excited about this. Hopefully it addresses the shortcomings of the G27 and takes things a notch or two closer to the competition (Fanatec & Thrustmaster).
My G27 is less than 2 years old but I’d upgrade to this if the reviews are favorable. Was thinking about a Club Sport upgrade as I was under the impression that Logitech was out of the gaming peripheral business.
Hopefully Logitech has done their homework and executed on all fronts.
Dont get your hopes high, its
Dont get your hopes high, its Logitech. Their products and after sales service both are crap at best. They have burned me enough times in last 10 years that a loyal fan like me has started to despise logitech. I would really love to see this company go bankrupt soon.
I never thought I’d ever see
I never thought I’d ever see one of my articles linked in these news pieces. Awesome!
Also, I totally expect that the G29 will have all of the same innards as the G27, just with a few things updated for compatibility. Unless Logitech moves to a belt mechanism, there’s not much reason to change anything internally, as the G27 is still a good wheel.
