Racing wheel with 6-speed shifter

Well they finally did it! I remember a while back I had a debate with another member about computer/console racing wheels, whether they could make one with a real manual shifter, as opposed to the usual sequential shifter.

And I stand corrected. They did!

It looks awesome, I would love to have one if it wasn't so expensive...it would add a whole new level of awesomeness to Gran Turismo 4....

That is awesome, but for half the price of a PS3, I think I'll pass.

It'll happen...But who would have thought that it would cost $10,000 for an engine to mount to my back with enough thrust to lift me

You can buy it at NCIX.com, which is a fairly big Canadian online computer store for $256 CAD...so thats a little better than $299 USD.

I know this thread has been quiet for a while, but I was wondering since the Logitech G25 uses USB, could you take an USB to Xbox adapter and use the Logitech G25 on the Xbox? I don't know if it will work, but I don't want to waste $300 if it doesn't work. Thanks for your replies/answers
