Which platform is better for racing games, between the 360 and PS3? - Sep 15, 2008 19:43
The reason I ask is because I'm buying Baja and this game has me so impressed that I've decided to buy a wheel for it.  I have both a PS3 and 360 so I can get the game on either console.  I've narrowed down my choice of wheels for each console.  The choices are the Wireless racing wheel for 360 (there wasn't much choice) or the Logitech Driving force GT for PS3. 

Which console has and/or will have the best racing games?  Specifically which ones are best with these wheels?  Most racing games don't even support force feedback.  I don't care about games that don't support the wheels properly.  Each console really only has a handful of games that support their respective wheels. 

360 notably has Forza, Test Drive, PGR, all work brilliantly with the wireless wheel, the latter being my favorite racing series. 

PS3 has Motorstorm, F1, Gran Tourismo.  I know the first Motorstorm does not support force feedback (the upcoming sequel should), I don't know about F1 but Gran Tourismo 5 will (the DFGT is designed for the game) but I'm not a big fan of the series.  However, apparently the game is far more enjoyable and playable with the wheel.  Playing Gran Tourismo with a traditional controller is actually pretty retarded.

Another thing to consider is which wheel is actually better.  Both are pretty good wheels that received high praises.  I trust compatibility of the 360 wheel with other games more as its the only serious wheel for the console.  The DFGT on the other hand has a sequential stick where the 360 wheel only has the paddles to shift gears.  Other than that they both seem to be in the same league.

This can all be for nothing as I likely won't even find the DFGT at EB games tomorrow, 360 may win by default.

Whatever, what do you guys think?  Which console is the best racing platform with the use of a wheel?
