No one has mentioned this yet, so I figure I'd start a thread.

Now is a great time to get a Force Feedback wheel, now that they're $100. You've already got a slew of racing games that are compatible, and Forza 2 absolutely kicks ass with it. Not to mention, Burnout Paradise is coming soon, and might make the sandbox aspect a little less tedious....

Is this a new, lower MSRP, or is it a sale? If it's the new MSRP, then that means that Costco and Sam's Club will have them even cheaper. I might actually have to consider getting one at that point.

That's pretty lame. It really should come with Forza 2 by now anyways. Kinda weak that it doesn't come with anything.

Isn't Forza 2 still $60? I doubt they would include that it in a $100 wheel.

I've had it since the day it came out. I like it but have a few gripes.

The place to put your feet on the petals is a bit small and awkward at first. Likes to slide around.

No shifter, only paddle shifting. The reasoning was it would cost too much.

Only thing anyone is missing out on with PGR3 is a variant. The game and wheel perform like crap together.

The Force feedback is awesome and Forza 2 is truly a different game with the wheel. I also like NASCAR 08 and Burnout revenge somewhat with the wheel. Haven't had a chance to play any other games with it yet.

if anyone had the opertunity to compare the old wheel to the new wheel id be interested to know if the feedback is any different

they revamped the wheel becasue of a hazard and im wondering if they made the feedback weaker
