XBOX 360 Wireless Headset - $59.99

XBOX 360 Wireless Racing Wheel - $149.99

XBOX 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver - $19.99
Still no word on the XBOX 360 HD DVD drive

Although many were expecting for Microsoft to announce pricing on its highly anticipated external HD DVD drive for the XBOX 360 at the 2007 Games Convention in Leipzig, it was not to be. As a consolation prize, however, Microsoft has announced pricing and package details for a number of other peripherals for the XBOX 360 gaming platforms -- many of which were first announced at E3.

First up is Microsoft’s $19.99 XBOX 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver for Windows. This unit plugs into a USB 2.0 port on your PC and allows you to use your XBOX 360's wireless peripherals in Windows-based games. It will be available in late December.

Next is the XBOX Live Vision camera which will be available in two separate packages. The first package, which will be available for $39.99, will include the Live Vision camera, one month of XBOX Live Gold and full versions of UNO and TotemBall. The $79.99 XBOX Live Video Chat Gold Kit will include a Live Vision camera, one year of XBOX Live Gold, 200 Microsoft Points, an XBOX 360 headset, and full versions of UNO, TotemBall and Robotron. That is quite a deal considering that one year of XBOX Live Gold is $50 by itself.

Also on tap is the $149.99 XBOX 360 Wireless Racing Wheel which comes with a limited edition force feedback version of Project Gotham Racing 3 and the $59.99 XBOX 360 Wireless Headset. Both will be available in November.

Na, I think this control should have both that and pedals, get the full experience.

It looks like there are paddle shifters. Close, but not quite what you're asking for. Maybe it will be a $50 wireless add-on later. ;)

Logitech is coming out for one with a shifter for the PC.

It's a Logitech G25; here's a pic:

Well, the mad catz wheel for the original XBOX had a stick on the side for shifting. Sadly the precision on the wheel was astonishingly bad--nothing like the old, and considerably cheaper microsoft sidewinder wheel.

I look forward to real force feedback (as opposed to random vibration), and hopefully precision that at least approaches what I expect of my own car.
