nice find
Supposed to be crap but I want one!!!
How do you use LB/ RB for clutch with this in Forza (IRC this has no LB/RB buttons)
Ordered 2 looks fun ...
I've got one. Only use auto gears though ....

Only downside for me is that the rumble's not strong enough. Other than that it's great
These are in our local Asda on Roll Back...


... to £39.97


Tempted to get one, £24 is the cheapest these have been so far I believe.
Poo!, no money, but I need one
Had one since they came out, sold it a couple of weeks ago. Was ok on some games, F1 2011/12 but couldn't get on with it all on Forza.

Overall prefer to stick with joypad (and it's certainly not as good as a proper wheel). Lack of bumper buttons is a pain.

Some might like it, for £20 may be worth a go. You could probably sell it for slightly more on ebay, or at least get your money back.
Tried this for the first time the other day at a Currys Megastore.. And what a bag of crap.

Why release a peripheral lacking all buttons?

I was playing Forza 4 on the screen and couldn't change view because of the button mapping set to LB RB. Also for some reason when in Manual I couldn't change gears. The left and right on the D Pad was unresponsive, I suppose due to wear and tear but still not good.

Not a fan of this considering this replaced the wireless official racing wheel. Be alright for kids and 'casual' gamers though.
Sorry stupid question, Will this work with PC windows 7?
my biggest complaint about this is where do you plug your mic in? YOU DONT! Can only be used with wireless mic.

not voting cold though as its a decent price (compared to normal)

Yes I too would like to know if this will work with Windows?

Yes if you have a wireless receiver connected to your PC. I picked one up off ebay for about £3 (obviously not genuine Microsoft) and it worked fine, used it on Pcars before selling the wheel. (That was with Win 7 64bit just for reference)

To save anyone else the trip, this is online only...
I didn't notice the Web page said ''was' price is current instore price' and tried to get one on my way home - d'oh
Hi! does anybody knows if this wheel work on an Imac?
thanks
got this last time when it was £25. much better than i expected. way easier than getting the proper wheel set up. now i need to get a wireless gaming receiver to worki ton the PC. not sure if i should chance a 3rd party one on ebay
Great price!!!....I have got them to match there OWN website price before, "No problem they have said" done it twice for me now, Worth a shot if you are going there anyway ???.....
Just to add shop to were selling this for £24.00 2 weeks ago and I brought it then and was really eager to use it.

After 24 hours of testing it I was not impressed at all.

ALSO it isn't rechargable and requires batteries. If anyone wants to buy one in the Basildon area for £10 which has hardly been used let me know lol.

If you bootcamp and buy a MS wireless adapter, yes.
Before you get one of these you have to be aware, as some people have already mentioned:

No LB/RB buttons, meaning you cant navigate some menus the way you should be able to
No headphone jack socket
No wireless battery option, just batteries
Some people are having problems with it disconnecting during play

I bought one myself for about £30 to use with F1 2012. TBH after tinkering around with the advanced settings, deadzones etc. its pretty good.

If you want a better experience than the pad but dont want to get a full steering set, and you can put up with the above issues, its not a bad buy. Could have been much better but voting hot
expired back to £34.99
grabbed 2 @ £19.99
will be playing ridge racer with the lad when it turns up
heat added
Yeah, expired on both sites, I've somehow missed this, despite wanting one for months!
back at £19.99
Cool!
looks like the checked shirt crew could have fun with this one...

Not so good then
These do look pants, you might as well stick a controller to a dinner plate and use it like that. probably fine if you're playing mariokart.
i wasn't convinced, waited a year then got one for this price a few weeks ago. You can remap all controls on all the games i have tried but not normally needed. This wheel has transformed forza 4 for me, the difference in all the cars and how they control, using this controller is amazing and i will never go back to controller. I agree using batteries can be annoying but still worth it.

Been using on Forza Horizon & I really like it, admittedly it does go through batteries quite quickly though (re-chargeable at least).

ordered for my brother.
Brilliant for Forza, provided you don't mind using automatic gearbox. You won't beat your best lap times, but you'll have more fun!
Woo, I missed the previous deal at £25 and was kicking myself, finally got one....

Now to find out if I'll be disappointed anyways.

UPDATE: Loving it, feels like being back in the arcades in the 90s
