Logitech has officially announced the much-discussed Logitech G29 G2920 Driving Force steering wheels.

The announcement clears up all of the rumors that have circulating lately on the wheel’s compatibility as both wheels are aimed at different platforms.

While the Logitech G29 is compatible to the Playstation 3 & 4, the G920 is the new wheel aimed at Xbox One, both wheels also work on PC as expected. Both wheels feature high-quality materials such as hand-stitched leather and are powered by a dual-motor force feedback system.

There are slight differences in terms of features though as the G29 comes with a LED-bar and additional buttons the G920 lacks.

As rumored before, the wheel comes with build-in shifting paddles but not a stick shifter, the Driving Force Shifter is available as optional addon, selling for 59,99€.

The Logitech G29 will be available in July, selling for 399, the G920 is planned to be available in October, retailing for the same price.

REALISTIC FORCE FEEDBACK
Engineered with dual-motor force feedback, both the G29 and G920 realistically simulate the feel of your car with weight shift, realistic road conditions and tire wear, so you can sense under- or over-steering, traction loss and more. With helical gears modeled after the gearing used in car transmissions, you get exceptionally smooth, quiet and precise steering action. Anti-backlash hardware also keeps the wheel and pedal input tight, to maximize control.

DURABLE DESIGN
Built to last, the wheels feature solid steel ball bearings in the wheel shaft, and stainless steel paddle shifters and pedals. High-quality, hand-stitched leather gives both the look and feel of a high-performance racecar wheel, and ensures a more comfortable and durable user experience. Additionally, built-in clamps and bolt points allow you to securely mount the wheel to a table or racing seat to minimize shifting or wobbling during aggressive maneuvers.

EASY TO ACCESS GAME CONTROLS
For seamless access to racing controls, the D-Pad, console buttons and semi-automatic paddle shifters are conveniently located. On the G29 Driving Force, LED indicator lights tell you exactly when to shift, so you can maintain maximum acceleration without taking your eyes off the track and a 24-point selection dial and plus/minus buttons let you also fine-tune your driving preferences.

RESPONSIVE PEDAL UNIT
A separate floor pedal unit lets you comfortably brake, accelerate and change gears, just as you would in an actual car, and also allows you to maintain a more realistic body position for driving. The nonlinear brake pedal mimics the performance of a pressure-sensitive brake system for a responsive, accurate braking feel. Additionally, both pedal units include a dedicated clutch, so gamers who want to test their abilities can have a truly immersive racing experience.

OPTIONAL DRIVING FORCE SHIFTER
Available as an optional add-on, the Driving Force Shifter is a six-speed manual gear stick with push-down reverse. The Driving Force Shifter features quality construction, with a solid steel gear shaft and hand-stitched leather boot and knob cover. Built-in clamps and bolt points also allow the Driving Force Shifter to be mounted securely.
