See that bad boy? That's the Arcade Game, Initial D. I first discovered this thing in 2007 or so, in an Arcade at a Mall in Richmond, VA. I noticed it used ID Cards (of sorts) to save data, and took an immediate interest in it. I sat down and played this thing...

For 2 Hours, if I recall correctly! While I did suck at it, it was still fun, and I would love to play it again. Sadly, I don't think any Arcades around here have it, and buying the thing is impossible for me. Even if I did have the funds, I doubt any company would ship it. Also, no Emulator that I'm aware of will play this game. I could be wrong though. If I am, please correct me. Smiley

Anyway, I'm left with buying the Console Version of it on PS3, which leads me to my question: What's a good PS3 Steering Wheel with Pedals? If anyone can suggest one, I'd appreciate it.

But wait! There's more to this post!

Wangan Midnight is another Illegal Japanese Street Racing game for the PS3. Shadow Kisuragi pointed me towards it. If anyone has played this game, could you please tell me about your experience playing it? I'd like to know more before I just go and import it.

Thanks for reading!

Logitech makes a pretty decent wheel/pedal setup.
 
I have a Logitech Driving Force Steering Wheel with Force Feedback and pedals for sale (for PS2, not 100% sure if it's compatible, but I think it is).  Needs a power adapter.  Selling it for a coworker, so I can make you a good deal if interested.  Send me a PM and let me know.

You also need to make a decision on the kind of racing title you want. There's touge racing, which is the style that Initial D uses (Mountain Pass racing) or highway racing, which is the style that Wangan Midnight and Import Tuner Challenge (formerly of Tokyo Extreme Racer fame) employ.
 
I have a Logitech G25. It's pretty good, especially when combined with the SEGA Model 2 emulator.
The Logitech G27 doesn't make as much noise when turning the wheel.
