Had Logitech's G940 "Flight System" been released in the mid-90s, it would have been the most desirable thing on the planet. Now, though, in 2009, it just feels a little...wasted.
I mean, don't get me wrong. As a long-time fan of the ol' flight sim, the concept of a $300 setup including a stick, throttle and pedals appeals to my love of all things expensive and pointless. But as a human who knows flight sims have been a niche market for most of this decade? Surely Logitech could have spent their money on something more than 4 people will buy.
The G940 will support most recent flight sims, and goes on sale in September. For, yes, $300 (which gets you the whole kit).
