Xbox 360 Wireless Speed Wheel debuts at E3 2011

I have mentioned before that we have all three of the major game consoles in my house. We tend to play the PS3 more than anything else. The big reason for that is that we like driving and racing games around here and on the PS3 I have the Logitech G27 and a racing seat that makes Gran Turismo 5 some of the most realistic racing action to be had anywhere. I have wished on more than one occasion that Logitech would make the G27 work on the Xbox 360.

Forza 4 to get head tracking tech and improved realism

Head tracking has been around for a long time. Honestly, it never really made much sense in some games. I can see the benefit of head tracking if you are playing a flight simulator for instance. I have even tried changing views in flight games before and honestly, it didn’t work that well for me.

PSN outage bites as angry gamers defect to Xbox

Gamers are not generally a patient lot, and they are unforgiving when it comes to errors and issues with a game.
