    So, has anybody picked up the MC2 racing wheel for XBox and if so, what games have you tried it on and what are you thoughts on the wheel?

    Thanks, Patrick

    I'm personally holding off on picking it up for gotham until I read a review for the thing. Although I msut say the more I play project gotham w/ the regular controller, the more I must say that it's quite easy to just jump right into the game and get going...the learning curve isn't as aggravating as other racing games I've owned in the past

    I may be picking up a wheel for the Xbox, since I love racing games, but I'm going to wait and see if Logitech releases a wheel for the console. I've always liked their stuff. (sorry, didn't answer your question, just talking to myself)

    I can't find the link now, but yesterday I was reading a review on another wheel (I think offered from Xbox, not a 3rd party???) on xbox.com and they said it was a little better than the MC2 wheel. It retailed for $59.99 and it sounded nice. Search around xbox.com and you might find it.

    David,

    I did see that wheel on Xbox.com before but I haven't seen it for sale yet here in Canada. I'll take a look again.

    DavidAM, you thinking of the Thrustmaster Wheel for the Xbox? I'm not sure, but I think I saw the review at GameSpot. Or maybe it was XboxAddict.com. Hmmm, can't remember. However, I dont' recall a comparison with the MadCatz MC2 though.

    I looked on xbox.com and I can't find the review I read so I'm not sure which wheel it was. They basically said they liked it better than the Madcatz wheel because it has some clips so you can clip it onto a table so it won't slide away from you. I was registering on the site and a new page opened and I saw the review on there. I'll look again later....I'm just walking out of the door. I'll post the name of the wheel if I find it.
