LONG BLOG

The most expensive gaming peripheral I've bought.

   0
Rather recently, one of my close friends, purchased a Logitech g27 racing wheel, one of the top-o-the-line gadgets, that is designed for racing games on P.C, or ps3. It was rather neat, but the problem was how he had it set up to play. It was on a light table, and nothing stopped the pedals from getting pushed as you brake and hammer on the gas and what not. Suffice to say it was not easy to play with this Ďhandy mansí set up. It was clear, you needed something designed to hold everything together nicely.

Enter the playseat. A seat and frame combo, specifically designed to house the Logitech wheel. And boy does it work well. The two paired together create an entirely new experience as opposed to the controller. It brings a whole new level of difficulty to games, having to systematically hit the clutch, put the gear shifter into the next gear, let go of the clutch, and back on the gas, is that extra something that just was missing completely before. The paddle shifters are a fun fast way to do things to. Itís that whole physical element of racing, that you just donít get with a controller. The set is very sturdy and stable. Itís not come cheap piece of plastic that is going to break in a month, itís a solid metal frame.You can crank the wheel left and right, and the set well stay in one place. Itís brilliant. The seat is leather, the wheel is leather, the frame is metal(probably aluminium), everything looks nice, and feels stable.

But the question is should you be interested in one of these things? Well that depends on what you playÖ


Yes, that is my super nintendo in the upper left hand corner, and no, that isn't my entire game collection
