Gran Turismo 5 wheel revealed at GDC ’08

Logitech has finalled revealed the official wheel for Gran Turismo 5. Today at the Game Developer’s Conference, Logitech gave fans a first look at their newly titled, Logitech Driving Force GT. Release dates have also already been announced for the product as March 28 was given for Europe, while North America has a April 17 release.

"We’re excited to be working with Polyphony Digital again to deliver a wheel that will satisfy the needs of car enthusiasts, like me, around the world,” said Ruben Mookerjee, Logitech’s director of product marketing for gaming.

“People who love the striking realism of the Gran Turismo racing series will discover that Logitech’s latest wheel will allow them to experience the cars the way they were meant to be driven. With the Logitech Driving Force GT, you’re not playing games anymore – you’re racing!”

This will obviously be a must buy for real racing enthusiasts who can afford it, as the $149.99 USD price tag seems to be a steep price to expect from the consumer. Hopefully, they’ll discount it by a percentage if you’re buying it with Gran Turismo 5 down the road.
