[MUSIC] Hey everyone, so I'm checking out Logitech G920 driving force wheel that they designed for Xbox One, it also works on PC, there's a few games it works with right now, I think Project Cars is one game, Forza Motorsport 6, which is the game I'm going to be trying out with this now, it's also compatible. And this thing is kind of amazing, now The gear shift is sold separately for $60. So that doesn't come with the wheel. But the wheel and the pedals go for $400. But this is some high quality stuff. I mean, we're talking about a leather wrapped steering wheel. This gives you force feedback. It vibrates. It auto turns to get you [UNKNOWN] out on the road. It is fully featured. It's got stainless steel features The pedals, it's got a gas, brake, and a clutch. Everything is adjustable. We don't obviously have a gaming chair here, but if you had a gaming chair you could actually mount this and the pedals into the frame of the chair. So I'm going to start this race. I have not been playing this game for a while so you're probably going to laugh a little bit at my skills. Or lack thereof. But let's start. While I'm using this for the first time in four to six, I'm noticing the wheel is super sensitive, like the amount of resistance on this wheel, as you can see, is crazy. It feels like the car is really struggling to turn. And the wheel is letting you know just how tight these turns can be as I skid off the road and into the grass. But that's fine. So the wheel will automatically adjust itself to 12 o'clock. Aside from my apparently awful racecar driving skills This thing feels awesome. This product, along with its $400 price tag, is probably best suited for somebody who is a hardcore race car driving simulator gamer. Man, I'm really frustrated with the controls on the, maybe I'm just not good at this. But it seems like I'm doing okay. Oh, and I just got lapped. I really do think this is a high quality product from Logitech. I'm just not very good at it. But if you love racing and racing is your passion, you're gonna love it. It's a lot of money, though, so just keep that in mind. And it only really works with But it works for PC as well, so there you have it. [MUSIC]
