    Xbox 360 Best 360 Steering Wheel?

    I'm tempted to get one as f1 is about to be released but wondering which wheel is the best? Wouldn't mind the full set with pedals etc

    I've seen the Fanatec Porche wheel which looks really good and looks like it's the one they're using in the f1 2010 videos. Heard it's pretty pricey though?

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks

    I'll second what neil said. For the 360 the M$ ones are the best I've tried.

    On other systems you cant beat the Logitec G25/G27's

    No disrespect to what the others have said, and I actually didnt mind the MS wheel when I had one, but there is absolutely no comparrison of the MS Wheel to that of the Fanatec Porsche Turbo S wheel.

    Just ask any of those that have a G25/G27, I think Prezzy and tips have them, to tell you how much difference those wheels are compared to the MS one.

    The Turbo S works on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, and comes with either standard pedals or alluminium "clubsport" pedals that are seriously serious kit!

    If you can still get hold of the Wheel on its own, you can use it with MS pedals or G25/G27 pedals with an adaptor, but I think they may have sold out of there limited run.

    It also makes use of a clutch and either sequential or 6 speed gearshift, although the paddles would probably be more suited to F1 obviously.

    Yes its by no means cheap, but worth every penny in my mind! Good luck with choosing whatever wheel you go with - all of them take driving games to another level over a pad

    Cheers lads, i've just had a quick look on ebay for the Fanatec. There's one on there thats up tomorrow, currently at £410! But it comes with the Gameracer wheel too which looks the dogs. A lot of money really, im tempted but i think it may be a bit out of my price range

    I can't find the MS wheel on any games websites. Have they stopped making it?
