    Does it sucker onto a desk or do you hold it in the air?

    Yeah, it's a Kinect toy meant for the input>output cretins; if its implementation in 2011 is anything like that planned for Forza 4, it'll be very much a casual option and no substitute for a proper wheel setup.

    Its lame and MS should put more effort into designing a new proper steering wheel. For motor racing games that Kinect wheel is a massive step backward imo.

    That thing is junk, just like the regular MS wheel.

    There's a new Fanatec wheel coming for Forza 4 that looks really good, so they haven't forgotten about us entirely.

    In fact there are 2 new Fanatec wheels which are Forza branded (one has GT2 internals with a new outer shell, the other is higher end and looks awesome). There's also a "Mad Catz" wheel coming which will probably be XBox only.
    There's also a Fanatec F1 wheel which looks to be tied in with F1 2011 launch. Not sure which platforms it'll support but I would assume all 3 since F1 2011 is due out on PS3/X360/PC.

    Yeah, I saw two Fanatec wheels but wasn't sure if they were two different products or just a higher-budget option for the same basic wheel. I've only seen very brief glimpses of the F1-style wheel but I'm hoping it's going to live up to expectations, and have a decent set of pedals too.
