I, too, am posting here because I'd love to upgrade from the Microsoft Wireless Racing Wheel to the Logitech G25 setup. Especially now with Forza 3 around the corner. The Fanatec system would do but it's more than I was hoping to spend.

I would like to just point out to the thread the following facts as a final, definitive answer:
To make a wheel for a platform requires the cooperation of many companies. That being said, we like selling products, and would always like to sell more products to new markets. Unfortunately, not all of the requirements lined up, and we were unable to pursue this product.

If you are not technically competent, speak to someone who understands how controller boards and the USB VID/PID for different platforms work; then and ask them how they can be integrated or switched with a simple toggle switch using a fairly simple hardware mod.

Charles: if some tinpot little company like Fanatec can produce a multi-platform wheel, surely Logitech has the clout to also be able to make such a product, even if it's a G26 or G27 or G30.
When is it hapenning? Make it so.

Surely now Logitech have a case to claim that the product exists from another manufactuer and there is high demand for it - so you can buy both licenses or whatever needs to be done?
The whole thing is outrageous

There already is a Logitech wheel for Xbox360 - The DriveFX wheel. I don't get how that plastic cheapo wheel could be released, if the high quality wheel can't be released. Very annoying with Forza 3 coming out soon.
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.

I know I have already posted on this forum already but I still feel that I need to write some more.
Forza 2 is a simply outstanding console game. Forza 3 looks even better. However can you imagine how good it would be behind the wheel of a G25?
Anyone used a Logitech wheel for Richard Burns Rally will know how good they are.
Perhpas we should all get together and protest somewhere. Harness gamer power. But where? Outside Logitech? Outside Microsoft or outside sony?
No logitech wheel for Forza 3 is simply an injustice! Can you not set up a shadow company and rebadge the wheels something else?

Ha, while that would be cool, I'm sure the legal ramifications would come back and bite us in the **bleep**.
That being said, we would have, and would, like to produce a wheel for this market. Unfortunately there are non-Logitech factors that have prevented us from doing so. Saying any more would either be repeating myself or violating my NDA.
