"It really enhances the gaming experience. Say for instance you're driving a race car and you hit a patch of ice. The wheel would go loose just like it would in your car. If you're going over a bumpy road, you would feel that in the steering wheel."
The Microsoft wheel uses the typical joystick port, is big in performance and in price...at a suggested 199 dollars. InterAct is just out with a 129 dollar wheel. It's a solid performer for the money. If you want force feedback on a budget, there's also the new FX Force handheld wheel...
"And it's a handheld device that has a steering wheel on the side that has a trigger for gas and brake. It has six programmable buttons."
And, says, InterAct's Tim Patterson, it will sell for under forty dollars.
