F-1 Converter Gets Xbox 360 Gamers Support for Logitech G25 and G27 Racing Wheels
 
 

When it comes to playing games on a console, I stick to racing and driving games. I am a huge Gran Turismo 5 fan and play the game quite a bit on the PS3 using my Logitech G27 racing wheel. That wheel is the only way to go for playing GT5. Logitech doesn't support the Xbox 360 with these racing wheels despite there being some cool racing games for the Xbox.

If you have a G25 or G27 and you want to get the wheel onto your Xbox, you need to pick up the new F-1 Converter. The device is a little box that sits between the racing wheel and the console and allows the wheel to work with driving games. The only catch I see is that most of the games won't be made to use the force feedback effects the G25 and G27 offer making things nowhere near as cool as they could be.

The converter will also allow you to get some automated macros for activating combos in fighting games that will work on both the PS3 and the Xbox. Once you program then you can hit one button on the converter and execute combos that require multiple button presses.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
