Logitech Introduces Force Feedback Wheel for Wii

Posted by at 2:29 am on August 21, 2008

If you own a Wii and are planning on buying EA’s  Need for Speed Undercover, Logitech’s Speed Force Wireless Racing Wheel is a must have.  While the name is unruly, it is the first force feedback wheel for the Wii, and it will help  give you a more realistic driving experience.

The wheel uses 2.4 GHz wireless technology, letting you play from up to 30 feet away from the console. Just connect the USB receiver to the Wii console, plug in the wheel’s power cord, adjust the lap rest to a comfortable position and wait for the race flag to drop.  There’s no assembly involved.  The  gas and brake controls are located on the wheel itself and the USB receiver can be stowed in a convenient compartment on the bottom of the wheel,  making storage easy when not racing.

“As the world’s most popular racing franchise, Need for Speed is committed to delivering players superior racing experiences,” said Larry LaPierre, Vice President at Black Box, developer of Need for Speed. “This November, Wii gamers can fully experience the thrill of the chase in Need for Speed Undercover with Logitech’s force feedback realism.”

The Logitech Speed Force Wireless racing wheel is expected to be available in the beginning of November for a suggested retail price of $99.99.

Here’s hoping this paves the way for more force feedback racing titles on the Wii console.
