Logitech G27 Wheel £99.97 @ PCWorld In-store

Found 22nd Oct 2015
Everyone knows about this wheel. For some reason some stores are desperate to clear the space. Managed to pick this up at £99.97 from PC World in Southgate, Bath.

Ring your local store and ask them about stock BEFORE running out like a pack of geese. Unless you enjoy the chase that is

now that's a great deal. would love to find one at this price
think it is being discontinued as there are now G29 & G920's available
Hotter than a very hot thing

... if you can find one.
Newport Cardiff Road has one on the shelf.

these in all effect have been discontinued from logitech for about 5 years, as they refuse to add it to thier gaming software. But a great wheel, and even better for £99 there is no way anybody should buy the updated/sidedated G29 Old (very old) technology compared to competition. But the G27 is a great wheel still

Most likely selling them off because Logitech won't make them compatible with PS4. The words I have for that company I'm not allowed to type.
I had the G25 an, at least for me it has been a great racing wheeel and a great experience with Gran Turismo 5 & 6 on PS3 and other games on PC.
Unfortunately after a while I started playing less and less and it kept gethering dust - it is a big item, so think twice before buying...

Someone has got a workaround for getting Logitech wheels working on PS4
Yep, this model is about to be discontinued, as a newer model is comping out. G29 for PS4/PC and G920 for XBOX One/PC. Apparently, the shifter is being sold separately too now.

It's funny because the G29 is essentially the same, it's just got a brake mod as standard now but no shifter...

The G27 is defo worth this price, brake mods are so cheap to do.

However I would spend the extra and get the Thrustmaster instead as it does feel that much better.
I bought the g29 as I couldn't find the g27 anywhereee for a decent price. Thought I may as well spend the extra 60-70 to get one I can use with ps4 instead of overpaying for the g27 from Logitech which as mentioned above is going to be discontinued. Would have preferred to pick this up at this price though as I definitely won't be using the g29 with the ps4 anytime soon. Already own drive club for PC so no value in buying it for ps4 too. And their isn't anything else worthy a wheel for console yet
I bought ther G29 about a month ago and am really happy with it. Works fine on both PS3 and PS4. However if I was going to stick with the PS3 I would definitely buy this. At minus £100 it really is a bargain. The only problem people will have, I think, is actually finding one. Voted hot.
Just checked my local store as it's close and no stock but their search showed up 1 in Llandudno and Liverpool @ £99.97. Good luck to those who get one, bargain!!!

Driveclub for the PC?
The newer wheels are exactly the same inside, just support PS4 and have more buttons. Such a con
Flock or skein of geese cos they are moving.
Cracking price. I used to love using mine on PS3 & Gran Turismo.

Lol was just wondering.
My advice is to just buy one at this price, don't debate, don't think just buy it. Even if you decide it's not for you you'll get about £150 for it on ebay.

I bought my G25 about 5 years ago for £99 on offer, after 5 years of use if I stick it on ebay today I'm still going to get at least £80 for it.

They aren't the absolute best devices but they nicely fit in that category above being a cheap toy but still affordable for someone who takes playing racing games a bit more seriously. So they are always in demand second hand and thanks to the lack of progress on them really even the old ones like the G25 and G27 are still desirable today because the more up to date models don't really offer anything new.

So again, you see one at this price just buy it. If you don't have the room for it, or the misses isn't happy about a £100 vibrating toy she can't use you'll happily recoup your money on ebay.
insane price!
I paid £130 for mine about a year ago and I thought that was a bargain.
Superb piece of kit.
G27 at £99.97, also likened to finding rocking horse ****.
It would be nice to get one at this price
i just phoned and they said "it's only coming up with the G29"

i'm sure she just checked the website *puts face into palms*
None in PC World/Currys Norwich :-(
Dont suppose anyone knows if they have one in Macclesfield or Stockport branches?

Are there any in the Coventry or Leamington Spa stores? Phoning them up … Are there any in the Coventry or Leamington Spa stores? Phoning them up is a complete waste of time, they simply check on the computer and then say there's none available, offering the G29 as an alternative.



​anybody who finds one is going to buy it. only way your going to find out, is going to the shop and asking yourself
Checked in newcastle - no stock

So Logitech g27 is a wheel that is perfectly compatible with the PS3. Sony releases a new console that is incompatible with hardware that worked with the PS3 but according to you the company that is to blame is Logitech.

Are you sure you got that the right way round? Why did Sony break compatibility in the first place?
I've had one of these for years on ps3.brilliant wheel.some.times I use the stick but normally the paddles.
it would be helpful if someone provided the pcworld product code !

It's sonys fault not logitech. they put some usb encryption crap in the ps4 so only certified accessories can be used.. you want logitech to come round to your house and solder a chip into your steering wheel? address your complaints to sony for blocking it.

The G27 was released long before I the PS4, in which case it must be a Sony issue.
By your logic dinosaurs went extinct because man discovered fire.
Thrust master wheels may work but that is probably a Sony code change to allow it, probably under licence.

Some of them do work, not completely, but they work. Most others won't work at all without the chip or sony to release a FW update that allows them.
