Can anyone suggest a cheap wheel for pc/360?


Really wish I could experience an SSD but of course my bank tells me that I can not.

If you can't shell out enough for a good one such as the various Logitech wheels, I'd suggest using a controller.

Probably not much right now, but as soon as the Xbox One comes out you'll probably see a large influx of old racing wheels on ebay and amazon. They are going to have a Forza 5 on release day which means pretty much any hardcore racer will be buying a new wheel to upgrade (since xbone will be incompatible with old wheels.)

 

On the other hand, it appears that all PS3 wheels will work with the PS4 so if you were going to shell out a bunch of cash you'd want to buy a PS3 wheel.

Buying a cheap wheel and pedals will only frustrate you after you realize the limitations. Much like buying a cheap flight stick and pedals will.
