Although there are no good racing games avail. for the PS3, and GT5 is a year away, i would still like to play a good game of GT4 on my PS3.
Does anyone know if the Logitech G25 Racing Wheel for PC will work on the PS3? I'm assuming its USB, and so is the PS3. Has anyone heard of this working?
I contacted Logitech, but they have not wrote me back.
The G25 is avail for the PS2, but the PS2 and PS3 controllers are no where near compatible.
Any idea's are appreciated!

It works,used mine on NFS:carbon (has name logitech G25 in controller options and everything) I've heard it works on RR . I'm not sure if the force feedback was supportedI set it up quick just to see if it worked ,H gate shifter was supported.

Thanks Skidz. Was it the PC unit that you were using on the PS3. Does NFS:carbon support force feedback?
Great to hear. How do you like the wheel, how is the H-gate shifter? Is the clutch pedal functional?

The wheel is great but the shifter is definitely the weak point it feels loose and cheap compared to the pedals and wheel.I guess I lied, it doesn't actually say G25 but it shows a picture of the wheel. I'll post the rest of the answers to your questions a little later. http://img300.imageshack.us/img300/5117/picture044eu5.th.jpg (http://img300.imageshack.us/my.php?image=picture044eu5.jpg)

Clutch is not supported but there is no neutral in the game degrees of rotation is not supported :( H gate shifting is supported as well as sequential shifter on both wheel and/or shifterforce feedback is also supportedIt is a PC G25 (pretty sure they all are)

Force Feedback is the wheel providing turning resistance and jerking the wheel in your hands in response to actions in-game like hitting a wall or curb. IT is not to be mistaken by rumble (the cell-phone-like vibration on PS2 controller's), which I believe that even the anonymous Sony respresentative did in that quote. We know that NFS:C supports Force Feedback fully. But we also know that Motorstorm, F1, and the GT-HD demo do not support Force Feedback. It's possibly because they are Sony games and Immersion's lawsuit prevents them from supporting it. But while that is certianly true for rumble, I haven't read anything fully credible stating that Force Feedback isn't able to be supported by Sony. It's an ominous sign for GT5 though, which is basically useless as far as I'm concerned if it doesn't have Force Feedback. It would also mark the end of my favourite driving series of all time. :(
Anyways... Keeping all this in mind I'm no longer recommending the Driving Force Pro. What would work better for F1 and motorstorm would be a non-FF wheel that just has an internal spring system that provides increasing resistance as the wheel is turned further. And then that same system would also spring the wheel back to center if you let go. Right now the DFP just sits limp and it's pretty easy to get one full turn off-center and be off the road by the time you realize that your wheel is still turned.
I have no experience with non-FF wheels, but if they make them to at least return to center it would provide at least 'some' sense of fighting resistance when turning into a corner, and would be more realistic just relaxing as you come out of the corner. For F1, that'd be my preference right now.

I don't play arcade racers like NFS and RR, so it will be a really sad day if the next GT has to be without force feedback. :( I may have to jump over to something like Forza or try whatever upcoming rally sim there is.

My money goes towards a nVidia 8800 if GT5 is confirmed to have no FF. At least my Driving Force Pro will work with PC still. :)
P.S. Yeah, arcade racers are terrible.
