The definitive sim racing wheel for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3. The Logitech G29 Driving Force Racing Wheel is designed for the most recent racing game titles for your PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 3 console. You can also add the Driving Force Shifter (sold separately) to your wheel for manual shifting. The G29 features dual-motor force feedback, helical gearing, on-wheel controls and responsive pedals.

Logitech Racing Wheels

This is not the first wheel made by Logitech (they have been making wheels for years), but the G29 is the first steering wheel they have made for PlayStation 4 compatibility. The other wheel they made recently was the G920 for the Xbox One.

6 years ago Logitech proclaimed they were done with racing peripherals. This wheel is a follow up to the Logitech G27 wheel, which is one of the highest rated and best selling steering wheels on Amazon (4.5 stars and 1200 customer reviews).

Let’s get into the Logitech G29 Driving Force Steering Wheel. This is a mid to high end driving wheel for anyone looking for a simulated and immersive racing experience. The price point is set competitively based on the features and other similar racing wheels on the market.

G29 Specs:

3 Stainless Steel pedals (gas, brake, clutch), Hand stitched leather wheel, duel motor force feedback, semi- automatic paddle shifters, d-pad and on wheel controls, and helical gearing.

What you get in the box is the wheel and pedals, a USB power supply, and the user manuals.

Similar To The G27 Steering Wheel

The wheel itself looks completely different than the G27 and of course it doesn’t have the shifter, but pedal set feels exactly like the Logitech G27. Truth be told the brake pedal is much improved over the G27 version. If you ever owned or played with a Logitech G27, then this wheel offers a similar experience with quality and build.

You can actually use a G27 shifter with this wheel (the shifter will work correctly, but the buttons will be disabled).

Logitech G29 Racing Wheel Review

Logitech G29 Pros:

    Built tough: Made with durable solid steel ball bearings
    Quality materials: Stainless steel pedals and hand-stitched leather wheel grip
    Dual-motor force feedback: Smooth, quiet, helical gearing – decent force feedback
    Easy to access controls: D-pad, paddle shifters, and console buttons
    Simulation: Delivers a solid simulation experience
    PS4 compatible: Works with the latest Play Station console

Logitech G29 Cons:

    Pedals: The pedals are only 8 bit resolution and brake feels real stiff
    Looks: This racing wheel looks a bit toyish

Compatibility

The G29 is compatible on the Playstation 3 and Play Station 4 only. No Xbox One and no PC compatibility

Mounting The Wheel

The G29 comes standard with table clamps for securing your wheel to a table or desk. The only downside to desk clamping is that there is nothing to help your pedals in place. The G29 pedals do hold pretty well on a carpet, but mounting on a cockpit or wheel stand is a much better solution.

To mount the G29 racing wheel on a cockpit your best options are the Playseat Evolution or the OpenWheeler Advanced Racing Seat. For Wheel stand options checkout the Wheel Stand Pro.

Logitech G29 Review- Wrap up

While the G29 has it’s flaws especially compared to the G920 for Xbox One, this is a decent racing wheel. The one thing that stood out to me is how quite and smooth this wheel is. The Logitech G29 has been heavily reviewed at Amazon and you can see in the G29 reviews below consumers rate it well.

I think the wheel delivers a pretty good simulation experience. I personally think it could feature a bit heavier force feedback and the pedals should be more responsive, but that is my personal preference. I think what bothers meet most about this wheel are the looks, I prefer a wheel that is more of a replica style. The hand stitched leather is a nice touch and feels like a high performance racing wheel in your hands…just doesn’t look like one. The nice thing about this set is that comes standard with 3 pedals and you can also pick up the add on shifter.

Logitech has announced though there will be no additional peripherals made for the G29 driving wheels though.

If you are in the market for your first racing wheel for the Playstation then the G29 will make you never want to play with a controller again. I rate this wheel at a solid 3.5 may be even a 3.7.

Hey guys, just wanted to put out a few words reviewing the new Logitech G29 racing wheel. I am not sure what the rest of 1 star reviewers are talking about, but that wheel is absolutely awesome. Yes, it is pricey and yes it is more money than the old G27 and yes it does not come with gear shifter anymore which you would have to buy separate for another 60 bux. BUT let me tell you something, that wheel is as sweet as it gets. Brake pedal feedback is huge improvement. All buttons now are on the actual wheel so who needs a shifter anyway when you have the paddle shifters. Use the gear shifter mount to hold your beer can or something. As usual Logitech did not disappoint me as far as quality and looks. Leather stitching, wheel all anodized aluminum or stainless steel components. Beautiful design over all. Noise is undetected; wheel turns smooth and very quiet… Wheel response and feedback are on point and pretty realistic. I am sorry for the negative fellow racing sim gamers, but I can confidently give the new G29 a 5 star review. Go ahead and check out some of the pics I took of it so you have a better idea how it fits on my 

Fine work and great gaming experience

The material feels like real car’s wheel (at least, comparing with my Audi S5 but much smaller obviously). Smooth force feedback. Button layout is the best in wheels that I ever found, feeling better than TMs. Fine work, the wheel, shifter, and the pedals. The pedals are reality (also comparing with S5, except the max depth of the break). Works for PCs, and also has a switch for changing between PS3 or PS4 mode. The shift light also works for PC if the game supports it (like PCars). If the game is old but compatible with G27, G29 will also works fine. Just more expensive than expected.

I am very happy with this wheel

I received my G29 yesterday and immediately plugged it into my PS4 ans started playing Project Cars. I am very happy with this wheel. I had a Driving Force GT for years, and it is still going strong. I gave it to my daughter’s boyfriend. Although I never owned a G27, I am certain this is an improvement. They have stiffened up the pedals and the wheel shifters to give it a more authentic feel. I actually have to put my weight down on the break to get full breaks applied, much like a real car. This gives you more realistic and precise breaking. The clutch, which I have not used yet as I am waiting on the shifter has a nice medium spring load which feels good as does the gas pedal. The wheel is smooth and quiet with virtually no dead zone. I have yet to adjust any setting in the game, and I don’t think I will need to. The buttons are all programmable within Project Cars, including the dial which can be used as two buttons, one clockwise, and the other counter clockwise. This really has all of the positive attributes of the Driving Force GT and the G27 as well as some additional improvements. It is likely to be as reliable as both previous wheels which is why I chose this over the Thrustmaster. If I were to suggest an improvement it would be to make the wheel larger, but it ultimately does not detract from the experience, so no deduction in points on that. A+

One of the First Actual Owners – It’s Great!

Before Pre-ordering this wheel, the low reviews had me a bit concerned. Then after reading, I saw that it was mostly people crying about the old wheel not being compatible with PS4. Well that sucks, but it’s no reflection on this wheel, and for the record it’s Sony that didn’t make the PS4 compatible. The G27 may physically never be compatible and Logitech would never be able to anticipate what to expect in the PS4…Anyway, end soapbox.

A solid "B-" that could easily be made an "A-"

I will not comment on the G27 to PS4 issue that prior owners are talking about – I never owned one so I have no comment.
