I guess I should have pre-ordered this thing when I have the chance. It seems that Logitech's GT Force Wheel is sold out NATIONWIDE. If anyone knows of any online sites that have it, or retailers in California that actually have it in stock, please let me know. Here is what I know: Logitech has confirmed that they don't have any more. They won't be making any more or shipping any more to retailers. Instead they will be marketing a slightly different product that will sell for about the same price and be avail in late august/early sept. Electronics Boutique has said they are sold out nationwide. It is unavailable from: Bestbuy.com, CircuitCity.com, Amazon.com, 800.com, and just about everywhere else I could think of. The frustrating thing is that many websites say they have it, but they mean by that that they are assuming Logitech is sending them more, which they aren't. You have to actually be sure a website has them ON HAND, not just avail for order, and so far none I have called have. I guess still getting it with the free speakers is too much to hope for, at this point I'd settle for just the wheel. I've also heard that the Logitech's PC steering wheel will work with the game, and many have insisted that it is identical to the PS2 version except for the color. (there is a thread on DVDtalk.com that says this.) However, I saw that someone here on HTF was having trouble with it, and someone else said it will work, but doesn't have a control pad, so it requires that you still have one hooked up. If that's true, it would mean my friend and I wouldn't be able to both use a wheel and race 2 player. If someone can shed light on any of the above I would be grateful.
