Could this be because Sony pays Logitech to not include Xbox360 support in their high end wheels? I guess that kind of limiting of competition is not illegal, but it sure is annoying and doesn't make me feel like buying Logitech products for platforms that they do support either.
Funny how people see it differently, I'm pretty **bleep** sure this Microsoft's doing and not Sony's
Microsoft are the tight bastards with restrictive licensing on their peripherals.

Charles is this a dead end avenue? These factors have prevented you thus far from doing so, is it still in negotioation or being looked at in the future or is this simply a dead end?
Be honest, Microsoft are at fault, aren't they?

So Charles, what's the deal? Is this completely a dead end thing or is there at least attemps hapenning to get this going at the moment?
Fanatecs is a 10,000 limited run, do you know why?

I've owned a G25 for acouple of years now and I'm still blown away with it. I got it when I bought a PS3, I had an xbox360 prior to this and had played xbox live since the very start in 2003, and its amounted on a racing cockpit. Not being able to use the G25 on the xbox has over the last year or so meant I stopped playing my 360 and have now sold my 360 and all the bits ( including the awfull wireless steering wheel).
There is no way I was gonna pay £400 on a wheel from a little company in Germany, what happens if it breaks? ( read fanatecs own forum and see the horror stories for yourself) At least when you purchase something from logitech you have peace of mind for 2 years, not that I've ever needed it.
I can see that most people want a multi-format logitech wheel but its not going to happen thanks to microsoft. When playing racing/ driving games its not just about the "high end graphics" but the overall experience you get from playing them. The G25 really does make all the difference for me to the pont where now i don't own a 360 and wont be getting forza3. I've hedged my bets on the PS3 and G25 with GT5, supercar challenge, Need for speed shift etc. coming out I doubt I'll be missing the the fact you can't use the G25 on the 360, If microsofts attitude is " let them eat cake" then so be it and I'll have loads.

Don't make me worry about reliability, I was thinking about getting the Fanatec (I'm in Australia)
I agree with you though, someone, somewhere is holding up the multiplatform wheel, according to Logitech it's not them, so it's Sony or MS and I'm voting MS
This is really sad and ridiculous :/ very annoying.

I dont even need a multi-platform wheel. Just make a sole wheel for the 360 and everyones happy.... there is obviously a big market for this type of wheel on the 360(fanatecs are always sold out at $400 and are not in any huge retail stores...) and its wide open. The g25 or 27 for 360 would fly off the shelves. They say its a licensing issue? how do other companies get around it? fanatec, madcatz... It just doesn't make any sense. I am desperately hoping someone soon gets off their **bleep** and does something to get this rolling.

I have not, and will not purchase any racing games for the XBOX 360 that will not support the G25 racing wheel that I have come to know and enjoy. It is as simple as that
