Good choice for PC but abandoned by most PS3 developers

Summary: Formula 1 2007 for PS3, even with its limited steering lock and 720p resolution, is a ton of fun with this wheel and the main reason I bought the G25. This is a very nice wheel and way better than the XBox 360 wheel (the G25 wheel shaft does not wobble), but unless you play PC games, SAVE YOUR MONEY because XBox 360 will not support the G25 and most PS3 game developers are ignoring the G25.
Summary: If your a serious racer,this is your wheel.It works on the computer,PS3 and X box.What more do you want in a wheel? The controls are smooth,precise and solid. When I opened up the box it was obvious from looking at this it was serious hardware.
Summary: Let me get the flaws out of the way... The shifter is well known for feeling flimsy, having unnecessary clicking noises, and failing to delivery like the wheel and pedals do. This is an important aspect of racing just like the other accessories are. The shifter needs much improvement! The pedals COULD be stiffer and vary in pressure, but that is me nitpicking after many many hours. Additionally, the wheel grinds and is very noisy.
Summary: I had a Logitech Driving Force Pro for a while, but its lack of an H-pattern shifter and a clutch pedal gave me an excuse to turn to something better - the G25. When I first opened the infamous green Logitech box that housed the product and grabbed out the wheel, I was surprised by a few things: 1. The weight - The three items that consist of the G25 weigh markedly heavier than the Driving Force Pro. The pedal base seems much more sturdy.
Summary: I have been using Logi MOMO (the original red one) for the last 7 years, so I am immune to the "wow-factor" which seems to affect many people when they move to a nice wheel from a less than stellar one, or even a keyboard. Its a given that G25 is greatly superior to the vast hordes of me-too wheels out there, and comparison with using a keyboard is downright embarassing. So we wont even go there.

Summary: June 2009 - Ok I need to preface this now that I have had it for a while - this wheel was wonderful when I first got it, but it didn't last the way I had hoped. Particularly the paddle shifters - they definitely have been a pain to deal with over the hundreds of hours I've put into this rig.
Summary: After getting used to having a clutch(car dosen't stop pushing in a clutch) The wheel is great with good throttle and steeering control. The only fault that I have with it is I would have liked more of the buttons be on the wheel rather than the shifter. Running dirt and paved short tracks doesn't leave any time to look or fumble for a button. Being 64 doesn't help either.
Summary: First the good. The feedback is strong and prescise. Very smooth steering and it will immerse you into the game. NFS Most Wanted and GTR 2 are great with this wheel. The shifter is awesome, although you do not want to beat it up. A ginger approach makes it work best. The pedals are very solid with good tension, although you have to have very small feet if you are going to use all three. I use my clutch for the brake forgetting the middle pedal. Now for the bad.
Excerpt: "...in the racing world. With the Logitech G25 is clearly a couple of giant steps ahead in the Force Feedback. Force feedback implies that the steering controls are heavier in some situations what makes it more realistic. You can even adjust the amount of feedback in the menu of the game.
