Amazon has leaked the Logitech G29 PS4 racing wheel with a selection of images.

If you’re looking for a new high-level racing wheel for your PS4, the Logitech G29 is coming closer and closer to being a reality.

There have been a fair few leaks about a new Logitech racing wheel, but now Amazon Germany has published what seem to be the wheel’s official images.

The images show off the wheel in its entirety, complete with accompanying pedals and rather obvious PlayStation branding.

Amazon Germany’s listing also revealed a few details about the wheel, which was priced at €399 (£294).

Here’s everything from the listing:

- The ultimate racing simulator steering wheel for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3

- Force feedback with two motors for realistic driving simulation

- Smooth, quiet and precise steering manoeuvres

- Durable components made of leather and metal

- Product weight: 5KG

- Product Dimensions: 43.7 x 32.3 x 30cm

Of course, the Amazon Germany listing has now been pulled, but it gave us a first semi-official look at Logitech’s upcoming racing wheel.

The Logitech G29 racing wheel appeared in a leak in late May that showcased the wheel itself and the internal documentation showing the approval certification came through on May 7.

Currently there are very limited racing wheel options for Xbox One and PS4 owners, with only the Thrustmaster T300 GTE, Thrustmaster T80 and Thurstmaster T300 RS for PS4 at present.

The Xbox One is sadly bereft of racing wheels at present, which is sad because there are certainly superior racing titles on Microsoft’s latest console.

We have reached out to Logitech for comment on the authenticity of the leak.

You stated, 'there are certainly superior racing titles on Microsoft’s latest console'.
I'm curious to know what they are.
Project CARS seems to be the superior racing title at the moment, and that's available on both consoles. Surely you're not referring to Forza?

It's a clone of the G27 (PC version) with playstation control added.

In the x-ray pic you can see an Interesting change to how the motors are now applying direct force to a large cog attached to the steering column, which is different to how the G27 works. That should fix the dead zone issue of the G25/G27 and possibly reduce the the notchy force feedback and noise you get from them.

Looks like the shell housing is the same as the G27 and the pedals haven't changed. Overall everything appears to be refinements to the last model. I'm quite interesting in finding how these changes have improved the wheel.

All editions will work on PC. Logitech confirmed this.
