    I'm after a steering wheel for games like GTP,Grid,Burnout paradise and cant decide which one to get.

    Options are the G25 (£160), Driving Force Pro (£65) or the Driving Force GT(£120).

    Do all these work with both the PC and PS3? A few people have advised me to go for the Force Pro as the GT just has the extra dial and the G25 is abit expensive.

    I have the G25 mate, pricey but worth the extra bucks IMO.

    It's a solid bit of kit, the only one with duel feeback motors and it's very well made with a good finish.

    Nip over to the GT forums for more info, Bad Robot posts some good details on this week and I think it's the benchmark.

    Spend the extra, go on you know you wanna!

    Just to add a bit of balance, I've got a Driving Force Pro and would recommend it if you can't justify the cost of a G25. I have used it with games such as GT5P and Dirt on the PS3 and Grid and GTR2 on PC. It's a good solid wheel, especially if you don't need a clutch pedal.

    I find the force feedback to be very dependent on the game - GT5P and GTR2 are excellent whereas Dirt and Grid are rather less precise.

    Any of these wheels will be way better than no wheel at all :)

    im looking for a wheel too, but if im gonna get one its gonna be the g25, it does not drop in value much and could see for £30-£40 less than you paid for it on eBay. And i do not think i will buy another wheel in my life so may as well go for the big one.
    cheapest i can find it is £149.20 at microdirect, was £145 at ebuyer a week back but out of stock now.

    I managed to get a brand new G25 from Logitech about a month ago using some discount code for 40% off and only paid £126.99 delivered and thought if I didn't like it could've sold it on ebay for around same price. Am really happy with it so am going to keep it and would definitely recommend!!!

    I ended up getting a Force GT for £99.99 from game. I had £40 of vouchers for there and they dont sell the G25 but i'm happy as i'm not an extreme racing sim driver. I'm going to need lots of practice though as im not very good with the wheel.

    Found something on the landing to use as a stand, not sure what else its used for. :confused:

    Theres a carpet grip that folds out but i have wooden floors. The rubber grips on the bottom keep it in place though and it doesnt move around for me.

    There is also the less complicated wireless wheel from logitech which is coming out end of September over here

    http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/gaming/playstation_3/devices/4565&cl=us,en

    You still have to plug the wheel into a mains if you require forcefeedback but everything else is wireless...and there are no pedals either...and a wheel clamp or table isn't necessary.

    This wheel is really for the more casual of gamers who just want a bit more than just a joypad for their driving kicks...

    I think it's gonna retail here for around £50

    I use some of that rubber mesh sheeting, the kind you can put on dashboards to stop things rolling around in your car. Just put a square of that underneath pedals and it seems to grip perfectly.

    U can get rubbery grip style mats from any carpet retailer or even B&Q they will keep tem for people with large rugs on laminate flooring. I have some under my rugs, stops them slipping full stop
