I'm looking for a decent, reasonably priced steering wheel for my sons pc. I've read some forums on steering wheels and momo and G25 looked to be popular, however, G27 has come out after 2011. I would like to keep the price around or under $100.00. I have limited room for the steering wheel on my desk, so I would prefer a vice or clamp to secure to desk, rather than suction cups. I was also wondering, if these steering wheels would be
compatable with my XBox 360. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

There really are only 2 companies (Like Coca Cola & Pepsi, the other soda companies are too small to mention) and then it comes down to your budget, preference:

Thrustmaster & Logitech and a few ones that just made 1 wheel
http://www.thrustmaster.com/products

Here's my personal recommendation what I think is best for you:

http://www.amazon.com/Thrustmaster-Ferrari-Racing-Xbox-...

First off it's Ferrari so your son will love it, secondly it's not too big and not too bulky so it can be moved with ease (not sure about cables ect. but the wheel, pedals themselves will be easy to move)
It is compatible with BOTH pc (for your son) and the Xbox 360 (for yourself)

For the budget you listed I believe this is the best buy ALTHOUGH it's black Friday soon and if you live in the U.S. you can get some decent deals 10-1 so you might want to look out for that.

I am not sure if you have checked but the G27 is FAR FAR out of your budget, light years away...

Amazon usually have a huge sale and if I lived there I would probably spend all my savings in 1 go.

Here's a list of other steering wheels to check out:
Mad Catz force feedback wheel
Logitech Driving Force Pro, Driving Force GT or G27 (G27 is for the PS3 though so I wouldn't advise it)
Microsoft Force Feedback Wheel

If your budget allows it try the:

Forza Motorsport CSR Wheel

Check this out:

Or just buy a Xbox exclusive steering wheel and buy this along with it:

A little out of your price range:
http://shop.fanatec.com/ (just posting this for fun)

http://eu.fanatec.com/RacingWheels/Porsche%20911%20GT2%... I mean look how sexy that is (Note this one is also PC , PS3 exclusively just an example)]

That Porsche 1 is a really nice buy I am considering that one or the :
Ferrari Vibration GT Cockpit 458 Italia Edition or the 430 Scuderia Cockpit

I realise the cockpit seems out of reach and out of reality because you are a grown man and this is allot of money for some toy, but think of it this way:

It is the closest you will ever get to driving a Ferrari on a regular basis. Your kid might love it, you can always donate it to him (in his room) when he gets older and your wife complains.

BUT I am not a home wrecker so to alleviate confusion just go with my initial recommendation for you.
