[Amazon.co.uk] [PS3/PS4/PC] Logitech G29 Racing Wheel + Pedal ($267 CDN all in, $200 off reg.)

Deal quick hits:
  • All in is $267.22 Canadian after conversion
  • Use card without foreign transaction fee (ex. Chase Amazon)
  • Use global priority shipping. Faster and cheaper
  • Logitech does not do International warranty. At the mercy of Amazon or your own to fix problems
  • Power adapter has removable cord with UK plug ends. Just swap cord if you have one, or get plug adapter (see rest of OP link for replacement adapter if needed)
  • Manual shifter does not come standard with Logitech G29. It does have paddle shifters on wheel though
  • Enjoy the full racing experience at almost half the cost!

**Edit : Pick global priority shipping for increased discount (faster and cheaper) - thanks to user Taurine for heads up.**

Since getting a PSVR and the recent add on to Dirt Rally adding VR mode, it is time to buy a PS4 racing wheel.

I decided to get the Logitech G29 designed for PS4. Reviews on the wheel are great, regardless of how it is considered a rebranding of a G27.

This wheel can currently be bought at Amazon.ca for $399.99 ($451.98 all in)

I wasn't ready to pay that so I went digging for a better deal.

Amazon.co.uk has it significantly cheaper even after conversion and fees.

The only thing you need to do to make this work in North America is swap out the cable for one that works in Canada. If you're like me you've collected endless amounts of cables where you will likely find one that works.

The power brick is the same regardless of country, only the cord changes.

If you don't have a cable suitable, you can always snag this replacement adapter.

Hope it helps anyone looking for a wheel like me.

Logitech does not offer International Warranty. You are on your own if it breaks down. Amazon will likely cover you if it arrives not working. - thanks to NoCountry4RFDer for bringing up the question.

Does it have the same problems as the G27? IE: The gears that crap out after 3 months, like how it happened to me?

Ouch, did Logitech replace it? Their warranty has always been good for me, at least with things like mice.

No idea. I haven't read any complaints about consistent problems. Logitech is usually good at replacing things, especially only 3 months in. How was your customer service in getting it replaced/fixed.

Not according to the website:
Is my warranty valid if I move out of the country in which I purchased my product?

No, your product’s warranty is only valid in the country in which you purchased your product.
Amazon is usually good about that kind of thing, so I guess it depends on the issue and how long it takes to notice.

But in this case, still good to know that going in. Im willing to take the risk to save $200 :)

Nice. Big companies are usually good about that. Did you get a different wheel you suggest? Or get the same wheel again?

Good deal.
While I'm admittedly not much of a fan of the Logi stuff after being burned on the G25/G27 PS4 fiasco, if I were starting from scratch this is a fantastic deal, nice find OP.
Be forewarned though, the description clearly states that it ships with a UK plug.
You may need to factor in the price of a converter.
Happy racing folks!!!!

Those Logi shifters show up regularly for around $50 or so as open-box items from NCIX & Amazon.
Or, the older G25/G27 shifter still work with these G29/G920 wheels.

Do the math.
Thrustmaster T300/TX's + T3PA Pedals & a TH8A shifter will be closer to $700-$800'ish.
Better stuff, but some people may just wanna race for sub-$400.

probably doesn't add to the discussion but I'm so glad I paid $150 for my new G25 ages ago.
still works great.

funny how it's practically the same product 9 years later...
Man I used to have Logitech everything...they're barely relevant any more. Especially since I gave up on console racing (was really into GT series)...PC for racing is infinitely better.

Yup, I put that in the OP with a link to buy a new adapter if you don't have the means to swap the cable or buy a plug converter. The power brick itself handles the voltage coming in so only the cable needs swapping.

Im very excited. I haven't had a wheel since this crappy madcatz xbox360 I got from NCIX like 8 years ago.. which wasn't fun.

The wheel has paddle shifters for those that care to shift manually. But the add on won't break the bank if you want a side shifter. To be honest I will likely buy one when I find a deal, but for now I just really want the wheel for Dirt Rally VR :)

Does it work now on PS4 without using any sort of adapter? I thought all the old wheels required an adapter or rewriting to allow them to work on PS4.

Or do you just mean it still works in general?

I was going to buy an old used one but everything I read said it wouldn't work. I am buying specifically for PS4 to use with VR.

Anyone else remember when the G27 would go on sale for $200? That was when they had the shifter included.

I would assume he means, still works great in general, as he said he has gave up console racing for PC.

yes Sony didn't want to support existing wheels on their latest console
their loss as there's no must-have racing exclusives for me
My Gran Turismo 6 on PS3 is still sealed...PC is the way to go if you have resources to get create a good setup

That's the other thing too, wheel is only part of the equation. Unless you're at the desk, you'll want a racing stand or a rig/cockpit....you'll soon realize the wheel is not even the major cost in a sim setup :)
So if one's going the VR route, wheel, cockpit, you'll need not only a pretty penny but the space for it too!

I am a casual race fan. Mainly getting it for the immersive PSVR style.

I actually plan on having some fun making a setup with a parts car I was going to scrap this summer. Going to take the dash off and use the drivers seat. Will be a fun project. Hoping to integrate the power seat, audio system, and working blower to keep cool (no air conditioning though)

Tell me about it!!!!
Last night I've added several tactile transducers (Buttkickers) to my rig.
My "quick test" soon became 6hrs of racing. Face Screaming In Fear

Played some PSVR DriveClub VR, then some Dirt Rally VR.....then switched over to the PC for some Assetto Corsa & Project CARS using the Oculus.
I can't say enough about how awesome this new sense of immersion is (really loving the one mounted beneath the pedals!), especially in VR.
Next step will be to download Simvibe and have all of the transducers running in a combination of chassis-mode & extentions-mode.

This all started around 10 years ago when I picked up a G25 for the PS3.
Since then it has, shall we say "blossomed" into a two Playseat setup, around 6 different wheel bases, 8 Thrustmaster rims, 4 sets of pedals, dual shifters, several button boxes, a Fanatec CSR setup, RGB backlit keyboards, etc, etc.
Now that VR is here, all of this equipment is really coming into play as far as immersion goes.

There's nothing more fun than screaming past an AI driver on Brands Hatch and turning my head to see their side profile and yelling "Hahahaha.....F U Slowpoke!!!!"....as I crash into the next wall. Astonished Face
