Default racing Wheel

What is a good racing wheel for the 360?
Do any work on both PS3 and 360?

The Microsoft wheel has been very good for me.

I don't know if there are any that are cross console wheels?

The Logitech one is very good on the PS3.

I thought about getting one for the PS3.
Then I realised I'd probably destroy it the first time I played Burnout with it


Any USB wheel should work on PS2/PS3 and PC, but not many of them do XBox as well, but you CAN get them.(these are not endorsements, they're merely results I found from googling: )

that would make for an ineresting warranty claim....

I am not sure if any USB will work on the PS3. I could be wrong, but I think the games are programed to work with only a couple of wheels.

For XBOX I think there is only 2 decent ones.

I've never really got on with wheels, but then again i never got on with the analogue stick when they came out. I preferred the D pad for racing. Now I don't think i could go back to the D pad.

When you get one let us know, as i may be converted

The MS wheel works fine for me, yet I don't have a lot of experience with other wheels for XBOX 360. There's Fanatec wheels for a bit more enthusiastic people, but after reading some reports about failing Fanatec wheels, I guess it's a bit like high end hifi, must own at least 3 of those, one in repair, one coming from repair and one going to repair. Can still be very great stuff, not tried even one of those. But looks so damn good I have problems to control my OCD with wheels.

Attached to a table, the MS wheel has taken a lot of punish from other people in a short time, but still works. I personally drive like a zen monk just because I'm so utterly lazy to use more force than is enough, but that does not apply to former truck drivers or kids. Actually this is pretty important thing with wheels, one needs just one kid to see a wheel, and guess what happens. Go and explain he/she can't try it, because it's a limited edition 10000$ Porsche-style wheel, covered with real leather torn from the seats of a real Lamborghini Miura Roadster 1968 ...

Logitech DriveFX should work with XBOX 360 too, yet I don't know anything about it, is a special model needed for XBOX 360 or is it cross console. It's a bit cheaper than the MS Wireless racing wheel. Anyone have it? I don't know, had some experience with Logitech wheels from my previous life, but no idea where they go today with a XBOX 360...

Would be very nice to hear about experiences with other racing wheels, as of course these kind of issues are of the most importance.
