Engineered specifically for Gran Turismo 5 Prologue (but compatible with GT4 and GT5 on PS2), the Driving Force features requisite force feedback, plus a new 24-position realtime adjustment dial (see -- it's red!), so you can fine-tune the brake bias, traction control and damper settings on-the-fly. Brake bias? Damper settings? Just point us to the boost button!

    The Driving Force GT wheel is "expected" to ship in May.

    Playing Gran Turismo single handedly made me a better driver. It's where I first got familiar with tuning, and learning about entry points, brake points, and other strategies I use whenever I head to the track or Karting at K1 or Dromo 1.

    Might have to pick this up whenever I decide to get a PS3!

    Control

    • Dual-motor force feedback transmission: Experience quiet, powerful force feedback effects. You'll feel every bump, bank, and curb, recreated with remarkable fidelity.
    • Six-speed stick shift: Quickly select between six forward gears and a push-down reverse gear. Or switch to sequential shifting mode.
    • 900 degree wheel rotation: Turns 2 times, lock-to-lock, to accurately replicate real steering dynamics.
    • Metal gas, brake, and clutch pedals: Control your car intuitively with sturdy, true-to-life pedals.
    • Two paddle shifters: Keep both hands on the wheel while changing gears.
    • 12 programmable buttons plus D-pad: Easily map game functions to your preference with the powerful software.
    • Comfort
    • Hand-Stitched Leather: The 11-inch wheel is wrapped in real leather to help keep your hands comfortable during long racing sessions.

    but these are all nothing when compared to those setups that use multiple flat panels set up around a Recaro racing seat. They use 4 360's in network to get you a true wraparound experience. The ones I've seen are a stupid amount of money.
