I'm a huge racing game fan and I've been playing DiRT 3 and F1 2011 a lot recently. I hear all the time that racing wheels are a must for people like me, that they are fun to use and improve race times. I'm looking for one to buy/get for Christmas that isn't too expensive (i.e. < £150), but performs very well for its price. I would like it to have an accelerator pedal, brake pedal, flappy paddle gears on the wheel, and good force feedback. I play racing games on both my laptop and Xbox360, so cross-compatibility would also be great.
I have very little knowledge on this topic and I don't know where to start, so any help would be great.
I didn't go for that one in the end but thanks for the reply anyway If anyone else is reading this thread then you might be interested in the Thrustmaster Ferrari F430 which is the wheel I've ordered. It is only £80 on amazon (add £19 for 3-year accidental cost cover) and has great force feedback and a good set of pedals, along with a flappy paddle gearbox. Not the best wheel but apparently very good for the price.
