|Ferrari GT Experience 3-in-1 Racing Wheel for PC & PS3|
Customer Reviews of Guillemot Thrustmaster Ferrari GT Experience Racing Wheel - Cable - PC, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3
This is a great wheel for the ps3. I have burnout paradise, blur, split second, need for speed shift, and motorstorm. It works great with all of them. It has a feature to where you can map any of the buttons to different buttons. The gas pedal is automatically mapped to the R2 button as the brake button is automatically mapped to the L2 button by default. It has different sensitivity settings and a great feel as well as button placement. I also have the logitech gt wheel which is also a great wheel but I find myself using this wheel more. Mainly because it works on all racing games, the gt wheel only works with some games. It doesn't have force feedback which is the only real drawback I have to say about this wheel. I bought this wheel before I bought the gt wheel and I'm glad I did. I have never had any problems with this wheel so far, just make sure you plug it in before you turn on your ps3 with the wheel switched to the ps3 instead of pc. With that said I have plugged it in after I turned on my playstation in the middle of a game while paused and it still worked. Overall great wheel, very universal as far as compatablility with other games, and wheel and pedal unit just feels great while driving.
Great While it Lasted3/22/2012
Which was about 30 days before the paddle shifter quit working. The shifter is not physically broken, it just quit working. For less than 40 bucks this seems to be a pretty fair wheel assuming the replacement wheel lasts. Certainly this is not an expensive high quality, and accurate wheel but it looks and feels to be pretty good overall quality. You get used to the only 180 degree wheel turning radius. Sent it back to buy.com for exchange / replacement so we'll see how well Buy.com's 45 day return policy works out.
Great Product & Excellent Service1/4/2011
This is a great product for someone who is looking for something that replaces dual shock to play racing games. I have used this for over a week now and I would definitely recommend this product. Took few minutes to figure out how to use to use this control for the Formula1 game as it was only recognizing dual shock and I had to turn it off for the wheel to work. Once done and changing the sensitivity it worked great. The buy.com service was outstanding as the product was delivered within 3 days of ordering (even with budget shipping)
Wife bought me this for Christmas. Connected easily, software downloaded quickly and I have been racing ever since. I have been using this with Dirt 2 and love the feel of the road through the vibration. I have had absolutely no trouble getting this working and using it.
