Logitech G923 racing wheelLogitech

If you like your racing games serious, you know that the only “real” way to play is with a wheel. Those who prefer to simulate rather than merely play can pour thousands of dollars into an advanced gaming setup, and Logitech is here for them, with the $400 G923 Racing Wheel. It’s up for pre-order now and shipping later in August.

The wheel comes in Xbox and PlayStation varieties, with both of them boasting compatibility for the PC. (If you’re primarily a PC player, I’d go with the Xbox version.) The wheel uses a steel and aluminum construction covered with hand-stitched leather, complemented with steel pedals and steel racing-style shifter pedals. That wheel can turn a total of 900 degrees with a hall-effect sensor.

But the star of the show is the force feedback system, what elevates this from merely a controller to a wheel simulation. Its internal motors continually adjust their electrical current for precision simulated feedback, which is fancy talk for “it really feels like you’re driving a car.” Other notable functions include an LED rev indicator and dual-clutch launch assist in supported games, and full Xbox/PlayStation controller inputs on the inner wheel for easy game navigation.

Players can either use automatic, developer-supplied profiles from supported games (like Farming Simulator—yes, really!) or customize their own in Logitech’s G software. The long list of supported titles mostly includes dual clutch functionality, though only a few take full advantage of Logitech’s TrueForce feedback system, including GRID 2019, Assetto Corsa Competitzione, and Gran Turismo Sport on the PS4.
