If anyone is interested in the new Driver game, just realize that they are using that always online DRM crap. Another thing you may want to know is that there will be no steering wheel support....

Hmmm, a game primarily about driving and no wheel support. Add in a little always on DRM and what do you get = no purchase.

Wow even console guys have wheels. Strange that they skipped that.

For the life of me, I can't play a driving game without a wheel.

Why would you want to? Joysticks are ok at best, keyboard = fail.

I like using my G25. I am not intending to playing this new crappy driver game.

It's harder to race with a keyboard than a joystick or wheel. You will be slower. Having a wheel is simply better because it's more fun, realistic and enjoyable.

G25/G27 with a 6 speed shifter is where it's at.

That is your opinion. I found it harder to drive with my xbox 360 controller than a keyboard in DiRT 2.

However I agree it is stupid to have a driving game and not support wheels.

Did you try Driver SF? I'm about to pull the trigger on it since it's the daily deal today.
