Will driving wheels that are compatible with the PS3 also work with the PS4?

Number6

One of my more fun Christmas presents was a copy of Gran Turismo 6 and a Logitech Driving Force wheel for my PS3. I’m also planning on getting a PS4 soon, and now that I’ve learned how much fun driving games are with a wheel, I’m a wheel devotee. The Logitech wheel was pretty expensive, I think it was almost $200 (thanks dear), and it says that it is compatible with the PS3 and PS2. Does anyone know if it will also work with a PS4 when I make the upgrade?

"Will PS3 peripherals such as fighting sticks and steering wheels work with PS4?
Generally speaking, no. However, at launch, users will be able to use these controllers if a specific game title allows it to be used within the game. This decision is upon the game developer and will vary from game to game."

From what I understand, it depends on the software developers, and whether they include support for an older wheel that was designed for the PS3. You have a popular (and good) wheel, so if any wheel is going to have PS4 developer support, I would bet it would be the Logitech Driving Force. Wheels are a big investment, and there are some $250 options out there, so I would hope that developers support the older wheels for a while.  

 

Here is the direct quote from Sony:  “Generally speaking, no. However, at launch, users will be able to use these controllers if a specific game title allows it to be used within the game. This decision is upon the game developer and will vary from game to game.”
