i'm not the biggest Scumi or Ferrari fan regarding F1, but i am disappointed to find out that the Malboro decal wont be there. its just a trademark look, and IMO, takes away (albeit very little) from the authenticity and continuity of the presentation. the first thing i thought when i saw that picture was theres something missing on the car, its too noticable.
Hello 01ferrari-fan how are you? You seem to be the resident Formual One '06 fan here on the forums so I need to ask you something. Have you got any information whatsoever on whether Studio Liverpool will put force feedback support for Logitech's steering wheels in the PS3 version of game? I have been trying to get an answer from people on this subject but no one knows. What are the chances we'll be able to use the Driving Force Pro or the new G25 FF wheel with F1 '06?
"Logitech uses licensed Immersion technology, which means they can make third party controllers and wheels with rumble and force feedback if they want, and they probably will. Furthermore, it's very likely that Logitechs Driving Force Pro will work through one of the PS3's USB ports. It's an excellent wheel with great force feedback and a 900 degree mode, and doesn't cost that much anymore.
I'm almost 100% sure games like F1 and GT:HD support force feedback wheels. It would be almost ludicrous if GT:HD wouldn't be allowed to support force feedback on the very wheel that's developed especially for the series."
I've asked this question many times, and it normally results in the above reply
Thanks for the reply. Just a reminder, Polyphony had GTHD running at TGS with a Logitech DFP wheel setup at their booth. So it's absolutely 100% certain that the game will support the FF wheel.
However, there were no wheels in site at Studio Liverpools F1 game setup, just the dual shake pad. I also find it concerning that they have not mentioned FF steering wheel support AT ALL in any of their interviews, nor has it been mentioned in any previews/articles I've read. THAT is what has me worried!
"Supporting the FF wheel, doesn't meant FFBack in game, sadly."
Huh? Supporting the FF wheel DOES in fact mean FF will be in the game. How could it not? The wheel is an FFB wheel and an FFB wheel only! There is no way the game could support the DFP wheel without the game having FFB effects. Or did you mean to say something else?
Logitech has introduced the Logitech ChillStream controller for PlayStation 3, Logitech's first product designed specifically for Sony's next-generation gaming platform. With an innovative built-in fan-based cooling system designed to keep the hands of gamers cool and dry, the ChillStream controller will be the only gamepad for the platform to offer this exclusive, patented technology. Logitech also announced that several of its products already on the market will be fully compatible with the new PlayStation 3 console.
Logitech's patented ChillStream technology includes a built-in 40 mm fan that circulates up to 3.41 cubic feet of air every minute, while generating very little noise. Three narrow vents on each side of the controller push air directly onto the four fingers, the base of the thumb and the palm of the hand. The air stream can be used in one of three settings ? high, low, or off. Designed to complement the sophisticated styling of Sony's new console, the Logitech ChillStream controller for PlayStation 3 comes in two finishes ? metallic silver or glossy black ? and features metal detailing on the mesh intake cover. In addition to the ChillStream technology, the controller's rubber grips make holding the controller exceptionally comfortable ? even during intense action. The controller will be available in the U.S., Japan and Asia when the PlayStation 3 launches in November.
Several of Logitech currently available game controllers are also compatible with the new PlayStation 3 console, including the award-winning Logitech Driving Force Pro wheel. The Driving Force Pro wheel ensures that gamers can enjoy advanced racing features ? including force feedback and 900 degrees of steering wheel rotation ? with their favorite racing titles. The Logitech Driving Force EX wheel and the Logitech USB headset for PlayStation will also work with PlayStation 3 games in addition to legacy PlayStation 2 titles.
