Logitech "Driving Force Pro Wheel" Brings Unmatched Racing Realism to Gran Turismo 4

FREMONT, Calif. - February 22, 2005 - Now that the much-anticipated Gran Turismo® 4 racing simulation game for PlayStation®2 has arrived, gamers should consider optimizing their experience with the most realistic, most advanced steering wheel ever made for gaming: the Logitech® Driving Force Pro™ force feedback wheel.

Designed specifically for Gran Turismo 4 from Sony Computer Entertainment America, the Logitech Driving Force Pro wheel helps racers negotiate hairpin turns with the same 900-degree rotation they would experience in a real performance streetcar. The leather-textured 10-inch wheel, weighted pedals, sequential shift knob, and paddle shifters help to deliver an unmatched level of driving realism. And with state-of-the-art force feedback technology, drivers can feel the tires as they grab for traction on different surfaces on the way to victory lane - without ever leaving the living room.

"We've worked very closely with Sony and Polyphony Digital to develop the premier driving wheel for the premier racing game," said Jef Holove, director of product marketing for Logitech's Audio and Interactive Business Unit. "The innovative features of the Driving Force Pro coupled with its premium performance will make owners of Gran Turismo 4 the most accomplished race drivers this side of a TV screen."

The award-winning Logitech Driving Force Pro wheel is the only force feedback wheel currently on the market that features 900 degrees of rotation. While optimized for Gran Turismo 4, the Logitech Driving Force Pro also works with all force feedback-enabled PlayStation 2 racing games - allowing gamers to use one wheel for all their games. The Logitech Driving Force Pro wheel has an automatic legacy mode for older games that support 200 degrees of rotation. More information on the Logitech Driving Force Pro wheel is available at www.logitech.com. The wheel is now available at retailers and at www.logitech.com for a suggested retail price of $149.99 in the U.S.
