May 6, 2008 The Gamer Gene recently got their hands on a Logitech Driving Force GT, the official wheel of Gran Turismo for the PlayStation 3, and are reporting significant improvements in fun factor and immersion, and a decline in the brutal learning curve of Gran Turismo 5 Prologue.

"I'd all but given up on the thought of beating the game [Gran Turismo 5 Prologue] until Logitech told me they were sending over a Driving Force GT. [...] All of a sudden I could actually compete. Not only could I reliably take someone under heavy brakes, I could gently guide a car around the High Speed Ring without losing traction on the corners and losing valuable speed. A couple of hours later I'd beaten the game and was going back through the B and C Class races taking first place where my prior best was second or third."

If you're of the belief that Gran Turismo 5 Prologue is the PlayStation 3's killer app, and you're still racing with the dual-analogs of a Sixaxis or DualShock 3, do yourself a favor and let The Gamer Gene convince you to spend some money.
