July 21, 2008 Following the release of the Driving Force GT, the official wheel of Gran Turismo for the PS3 just a couple of months ago, Logitech have followed up with the one-piece Driving Force Wireless force feedback racing wheel for the PS3. The one-piece design includes controls for gas, brake, shifting and menu navigation as well as an expandable lap rest, so it doesn’t need to be mounted to a table.

The one-piece design includes controls for gas, brake, shifting and menu navigation as well as an expandable lap rest, so it doesn’t need to be mounted to a table. The wheel eliminates the mess of a cable to the console thanks to a USB receiver utilizing 2.4 GHz wireless technology to provide a lag-free range of up to 30 feet, however Logitech haven’t been able to overcome the pesky requirement of a power cord.

The Logitech Driving Force wireless force feedback wheel is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning in August with a suggested retail price of US$99.99.
