Is this the new PS4 Logitech G29 racing wheel?

This could be the new PS4 Logitech G29 racing wheel perfect for giving us the racing experience on Sony’s latest console.
 
Thanks to leaked photos and documentation, we could be getting our first look at the new Logitech wheel for PS4.
 
This could be the first of Logitech’s new steering wheels for the latest generation of consoles and the replacement for its popular Logitech G27.
 
The leaked documentation and photos came courtesy of website MaxConsole via a tipster, who suggests that the Logitech G29 Driving Force is real and is coming soon.
 
The documentation states that the approval certification came through on May 7, 2015 for the Logitech G29 after it has undergone the final testing.
 
As you can see from the images above and below, the wheel carries Logitech branding and a prominent Playstation button near the bottom of the wheel’s central hub.

It looks to have the same high quality feel of the previous high-end Logitech wheels, but the front has many of the features found on the Driving Force GT.
 
The Driving Force GT was a special model introduced for console owners, so this might be a PlayStation exclusive with Xbox One and PC versions to come at a later date.
 
At present there are very limited options for Xbox One and PS4 owners looking to buy a new racing wheel.
 
The PS4 has the Thrustmaster T80, Thrustmaster T300 GTE and Thrustmaster T300 RS and it’s also compatible with select older wheels from the manufacturer.
 
You can’t get any for the Xbox One at the moment, which is partly down to the fact Microsoft created a brand new protocol for game controllers and input devices.
 
Microsoft’s latest console isn’t compatible with any of the devices that use the XInput protocol for the Xbox 360.
