    I think I read in another thread mention of a FF wheel + pedals - can't find it for the life of me!! Is there one available? A Google throws up hope but mostly leads to PS2 gear :(

    The Speedster isn't a force feedback wheel - think it's called force shock or something along those lines (although I stand to be corrected if someone knows better :hiya: )

    Ok reading more about it it may be force feedback - anyone got or tried one who can comment on the quality of the feedback (or feedback on the feedback :rotfl: )?

    Unfortunately, Xbox doesn't support force feedback natively. The Fanatec wheel (I think that's the Speedster 3 you mention) does have 'feedback effects' however, and this is the closest you'll ever get to FF on an Xbox. I have one, and it's a great piece of kit - really well built, and the feedback effects are done well.

    Playing a supported game (it was designed with Forza in mind mostly), it does pull against you when you take a corner (and you feel this pull decrease as you lose traction), and shudders when you go off-road. It is a bit pricy, but I don't regret getting mine. It has slots to plug a Live headset in too so you can use it online.

    Cheers for the info....I didn't think it was true Force Feedback. I find it hard to believe that MS didn't include support for FF in the XBox - this must be possible with an add on or something...saying that, if it was I suppose it would have happened by now.

    I was pretty interested in this wheel a while back, read a load of fantastic reviews :thumbsup: The only thing that stopped me buying it was the lack of connectivity for the Xbox360, at £74.99 I didn't like the idea of putting it into retirement in just a few months :suicide:

    What's the story with Force Feeback on the 360 then?
    The inputs are usb (or WiFi) so hopefully they've added support for PC based FF wheels.

    Anybody heard anything?
