I have the Turbo S wheel and clubsport pedals on order because its the only one compatible across the 3 formats I use - PC, PS3 and 360.Had a GT3 RS on order since June so should be getting it fairly soon. Didn't go for the pedals though as I think they would be too big for my stand and a bit much moneys. Seems like a decent review though
Fanatec used to have a forum here but I think it was removed
I'd be surprised if the G27 is 360 compatibility. I don't know if its Logitech of Microsoft who are the reason behind the lack of support but I do recall a post by a Logitech rep on their forums almost a year ago IIRC saying it was a licensing issue which stopped compatibility and something with the electronics and the way devices interface with the 360 meant making some sort of adaptor for the G25 was not possible either.Danny great link, thanks m8. MIght aswell get the Turbo S once pocket permits, all depends on what Logitech come up with the G27.
I think its a bit unfair to say only insidesimracing are hyping it, there are a number of other reviews out there as well as YouTube video's from users. With the cost being quite high I've thought long and hard over my purchase and I don't give much weight to the insidesimracing reviews anyway. I'd be happy to post my comparison between my current G25 and the 911 Turbo S when it arrives but then I generally don't put much stock in those either because often people post glowing reviews because its their shiny new toy Suffice to say I need a wheel compatible across the three formats I use and to my knowledge the Fanatec offering is the only one. I've tried the official Microsoft 360 wheel and for me it doesn't give me a satisfactory experience though others may disagree I wanted something closer in spec to my G25.Click here for the Logitech G27 discussion
About that Porsche wheel, why is everybody so thrilled with it? The only guys reviewing/hyping it are insidesimracing in every episode. Apart from them i hardly see any reviews of that product, that make me want to buy it.
Best thing is that it is compatible with pc and xbox and their pedals look good. Would be nice to get a test set and write a review of it and judge it ourselves.
The GT3 doesn't have the shifter AFAIK (can be bought separately) but the 911 Turbo S does, sequential and H-pattern though I think the way Logitech has their gearshift able to be separately clamped is a better solution than the rods used on the Fanatec but I may reconsider once I've actually got my hands on one and see how sturdy it is.but the g25 has a big advantage over the fanatec wheel
it has a shifter while the fanatec doesn't have one

And the Fanatec has h-pattern AND seq. shifter.
