Logitech revealed at the GDC 2008 the Official Wheel of Gran Turismo for the Sony PS3.

The Logitech Driving Force GT racing wheel, the official wheel of Gran Turismo is featuring powerful force feedback and a 24-position realtime adjustment dial for on-the-fly control of brake bias, traction and damper settings.
"We're excited to be working with Polyphony Digital again to deliver a wheel that will satisfy the needs of car enthusiasts, like me, around the world," said Ruben Mookerjee, Logitech's director of product marketing for gaming. "People who love the striking realism of the Gran Turismo racing series will discover that Logitech's latest wheel will allow them to experience the cars the way they were meant to be driven. With the Logitech Driving Force GT, you're not playing games anymore - you're racing!"

Logitech's latest racing wheel was meticulously designed by Logitech and Polyphony Digital, Inc., the developer of the Gran Turismo series. The companies worked together to add the unique realtime adjustment dial, a first for force feedback wheels, allowing people to fine tune the car's balance by adjusting the brake bias, traction control and damper settings. Now Gran Turismo drivers can have precise control over the car's setup to achieve maximum performance.

The Logitech Driving Force GT wheel is engineered for use with Gran Turismo 5 Prologue on PS3, which will be available on Blu-ray Disc and as a download on the PLAYSTATION Network in North America on April 17th and in Europe on March 28th.

The Logitech Driving Force GT wheel is also compatible with Gran Turismo(TM)3 and Gran Turismo 4 on the PlayStation(R)2 computer entertainment system.
The Logitech Driving Force GT wheel is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning in May. The suggested retail price is $149.99 (U.S.).
