Not bad $399 at Bing Lee and seems the cheapest.
I dont get how this hasnt had a deep discount in ages, I remember I got the G920 near launch years ago at this price, frustrating as mine recently died

Is the cost of making this wheel and pedals higher than making a PS4? Just curious on why the accessories are more expensive than the console itself.
Economy of scale probably. How many people are going to buy a racing wheel? Not many I'd imagine.
But that is just a lazy g27 wheel renamed to g29 isn't it? Sure they will call it g31 or something when PS5 is out.
Its more like a Driving force GT wheel which retailed for $150 before logitech pulled it and replaced it with this hugely marked up one.
lol, you should check out the expensive wheels then. This is a toy in comparison to Thrustmaster which is around $600 and then you get to Fanatec which makes Thrustmaster look and feel cheap which starts at around $800 and goes as far as $2500 for just a wheel.
Hell I've paid more for just a rim or a set of pedals than the PS4 Pro costs. You get what you pay for.
I'm glad I only paid $200 second hand, as it now sits in the garage. Everyone was telling me to buy Thrustmaster for hundreds more lol.
Sim racing isn't for everyone, it's much more difficult than many people expect coming into it. Takes a lot of practice.
@Where's_That_Cake: Yea I enjoy track days IRL, but don't have enough time to learn how to use a steering controller in a game. I got decent at Dirt Rally, but then found it impossible to learn GT Sport, and MAN Project Cars takes so much time haha - having to learn the track, each corner and it's optimal line/speed etc, then do it perfectly for like 15 laps….
@OnlinePred: GT Sport is trash imho
@Where's_That_Cake: It is, it's why I can't get used to it
Are these things any good to have some casual fanging around in arcade style drivers like FH3/4?
Nope, I still use controllers on Horizon, because it's too arcade-like. steering input from the wheel feels disconnected to the car compared to racing sims.
I'm a bit the opposite.. after getting used to using a wheel, I find it difficult to use a controller in any racing/driving game. It's probably because I do most of my gaming on a PC so don't tend to use a controller much.
I like using the wheel in Horizon, although I don't have a dedicated chair so can be annoying to set up each time.
The Xbox controller is pretty great for casual racing games. I hate the PS4 controller though. I often go for the Xbox controller over my wheel for horizon, but grab the wheel for games like Dirt Rally or Project Cars
Just consider having to store it, pull it out, put it away etc. For the casual ones I prefer just starting the game and getting into it. You will enjoy it a little more, but you will have to get used to using a steering controller as it will be different.
Not worth the price even with this discount imho…
But its a nice change from a controller. They're horrible to use in games like The crew 2 and NFS series. Forza horizon is closer to physics than those 2 although still pretty null on handling.
Any recommendations for a mount? Is it worth getting the more portable style or just get one with a seat?
