New Forza 3 Wheel Showing At E3

If for some reason you weren't expecting Microsoft to show off Forza Motorsport 3 for the Xbox 360 at this year's E3 expo, start expecting it.

German racing wheel maker Fanatec says its new Porsche 911 Turbo S wheel controller, the one built with Forza 3 in mind, has entered pre-production and will be shown at E3 next month. What's more interesting is why the wheel appears to have been slower in getting to production.

"It took a little bit longer than expected but Microsoft wanted us to support a new feature for Forza 3," writes Fanatec company rep Thomas. Wonder what that could be?

While the game hasn't yet been officially announced, its existence was not-so-subtly hinted at recently.

    A new wheel is nice, but will it be up to the standards of Logitech's (sadly non-compatible) offerings or another plastic piece of shifter-less junk?

    A clutch...? What else could there be to support, I wonder...

      Only other Forza-specific thing I can think of is designated buttons for the telemetry pages, but I doubt anyone would go gaga over that. I think 99.99999% of us would be absolutely ecstatic with a clutch and H-gate shifter. :)
