    My friend is looking for a wheel to go with GT5/ 6, so i told him to get a Driving Force GT as it's the improved version of my Driving Force Pro which I think is great. I bought my DFP when GT4 was launched. I couldn't believe it when he told me the DFGT was £120! I thought they might be £70, I remember my DFP was only £49. Has the DFGT always been that price? Have Logitech just put up the price becuase there is no real competition (PS3)? I can see why sales of GT6 are poor if wheels are so much and I assume people have tried GT5 with a pad and found it frustrating, as I did when my wheel wasn't setup.

    Has anyone got any recopmmendations of wheels or where to get a DFGT for a decent price?

    Cheers :)

    I really miss my NegCon, that was fantastic for driving games.

    Production cost and demand I would guess.
