Hype about TRUEFORCE
The key selling point of Logitech’s next-gen wheel is a new force feedback system called “TRUEFORCE”. World’s Fastest Gamer James Baldwin has already got his hands on the hardware and seems to be rather impressed.
I can confirm I’ve used this on ACC, it actually feels insane🔥 https://t.co/lFB4WefMx9— Jaaames (@JaaamesBaldwin) August 5, 2020
The full power of the TRUEFORCE system can only be used in Gran Turismo Sport, Assetto Corsa Competizione and GRID (2019). Esports commentator and former Nitro Nights guest Actrollvision is excited about the new feature nevertheless.
Had this for a few months. Have done endurance events on iracing, so definitely have the hours behind to give an opinion.— Luke Crane (@Actrollvision) August 5, 2020
A huge step in the right direction, Trueforce is only just beginning, the future is huge. The brake pedal is on par with my children in terms of importance. https://t.co/yVFFzGa8HW
The same wheel again?
Other voices from the community have been sceptical about the new release. A lot of users think that the G923 looks very similar to its predecessor, the Logitech G29. They assume there might be no significant differences between the wheels, and therefore can’t justify buying the new hardware.
“Never change a winning team and all, but Logitech should upgrade their tech for their wheels. Unless they changed to metal gearing and refined the meshing, which I highly doubt.”
Memes are simply the best way to express your point of view, as this example proves:
The discussion about whether they are same wheels or not is very spicy. A reddit thread about the topic has already received more than 300 comments so far.
“It’s basically the g29, which is basically the g27, which is basically the g25….which came out in 2006.”
“So pretty much not an upgrade in any way and more a direct replacement. Again. Only new feature is something that sounds like a more advanced version of the wheel vibration setting, but in return it makes your wheel loud again, negating the only reason to swap your G27 for a G29.”
Our Nitro Nights host Froskurinn is very excited about the G923:
I want one. Jesus that’s clean.— Froskurinn (@Froskurinn) August 5, 2020
The price of the wheel has become another big point of discussion in the community.
Our former Nitro Nights guest Danny Giusa does not seem to agree with the initial pricing.
“€399,- seems a bit steep. This “trueforce” thing better be an actual improvement.”
“The G29 is a good wheel when bundled at the $250-300 pricemark.. but $399 thats got to be a joke for a refreshed 5 year old product.”
Time to get an older product?
There are some smart shoppers already see their chance to grab an older-gen Logitech wheel for a good price.
“Hopefully the G920 drops in price and is actually available.”
Those who consider replacing their old wheel with the G923 have to get rid of their old hardware. This reddit user has found a very creative way to dispose of his Logitech G25.
