Jesse and I visited the Xbox buildings again this week, this time to check out the soon-to-be-released Xbox wheel
. Dennis Tom is the Program Manager for the wheel and he told us everything there was to know, including some neat info about the automotive design cues that went into it.
This new controller is sweet... and I've got to say... once you've tried it, going back to driving in Need for Speed: Most Wanted
last night without a wheel was truly a disappointing experience (not that I didn't have fun... I beat #10 on the blacklist last night!). I've already started the process of convincing my wife that we need
this wheel in our family room, so perhaps by the time it comes out (Dennis talks timelines in the video, but I believe it is in the second half of November) I'll be able to make it happen.
And just like the wireless headset
... this will work with your PC as a wireless wheel if you get the wireless receiver
