Xbox 360 Racing Wheels Not That Broken, Return Boxes Coming In

The Xbox 360 Racing Wheel Retrofit program that Microsoft instituted back in August is well underway, with people getting letters like the one above that we personally received.

If you signed up for a "retrofit", you'll be eventually sent a shipping container that you can shove your wheel for Microsoft to repair and ship back to you about 2-4 weeks later (an eternity in game time). However, if you want to take your chances, Microsoft's said there have only been 70 "incidents" in the field, which taken out of 230,000 sold units, isn't all that many. So it's up to you: a house slightly on fire or a month of having to play Forza 2 and PGR4 with a regular controller. [Next-Gen Biz via Kotaku]

I would like to know when they are going to sell the wheel again. I would love to get a few racing games for my 360, but the reviews for the 3rd party wheels seem to show they all suck in comparison to the MS one.
