Logitech goes wireless with Wii racing wheel

Now racing aficionados who own a Nintendo Wii can get on the action and rejoice to see the newly announced Speed Force Wireless.

Logitech

Earlier this summer, Logitech debuted the Driving Force Wireless steering wheel for the PlayStation 3. It was essentially a streamlined, downsized version of the Logitech Driving Force GT, adding wireless connectivity to the console and dropping the gearshift--and making the whole rig a lot more living-room-friendly for casual gamers.

Now the company is applying that same basic design to the Wii. Except for the Nintendo-friendly color scheme, control setup, and built-in brake and gas controls, the Logitech Speed Force Wireless is a near doppelganger of the PS3 version: it utilizes the same sort of contoured, expandable lap (rest rather than a table clamp), and it's completely wireless except for the power cord. Look for the Speed Force Wireless to hit stores soon for $100.
