Does anyone know how to adapt a Logitech Pro steering wheel (for Playstation) to connect to an XBox 360?
The wheel that Microsoft used to sell is pretty poor. The only alternative is a German wheel selling for over 500 Euros.
Forza4 deserves a decent wheel.

There aren't many options - you can get a converter box (http://www.xcm.cc/xcm_cross_fire_converter.htm or the recently announced Raptorfire Cronus) which allows you to emulate a XBox 360 controller, but it's a bit of a kludge:

AFAIK you lose force feedback if run through a convertor.

Thank MS for their proprietary wireless connection, you're pretty well stuck with "certified" devices if you want full functionality.

The original wheel they did was actually pretty good I thought, especially given how cheap it was. Yeah, it was a bit plasticy, but ok for the price. The new Kinect wheel they do is completely worthless.
