Angry Anyone have a steering wheel for PC/Ps3??

Why has this shit gotten so expensive? Looking for a G25 or G27 wheel to replace my old G25 with (broken shifter) and all I see is used shit listed at like $400... WTF.

I bought a new shifter separately and might see if I can get my wheel to work but if anyone has any tips or equipment they want to sell (for less than the cost of a whole new console lol) I'd appreciate the help!

Like everything in life there's a lower tier and upper tier when it comes to wheels. The current budget wheel is the Logitech G29 which is about $330 with a shifter. The guy above is right when it comes to brands like Fanatec and Thrustmaster. These are a more premium option.

Yup, pulled the top notch trigger and bought a TM500R edition with Ferrari racing wheel. Is absolutely worth the price.

Where are you seeing a G29 with shifter for $330? I wouldn't be killing myself over that price. Do you guys not think these prices are absurd? The g25 and g27 were so much more reasonably priced. Consoles and games have been steady at cost with inflation and these things have skyrocketed for no reason. It's a bunch of plastic and servos, and the tech has barely changed in over a decade, there's no reason for these prices!

Wooow, just saw the offer at Amazon, that my T500 RS has passes the supersonic border of $1000,-
Thats indeed too much money for this stuff, bought it years ago for not more than 480,- with the Ferrari Driving wheel.

The G29 looks also nice and I think, the total package is worth a try. You have to live with the fact, that more plastic is present, but this should not affect the handling and function.
