NissanUrge.jpgMicrosoft and Nissan North America have teamed up to deploy what is possibly the most expensive game peripheral in history. According to an official announcement that explains initial reports in more detail, Nissan's "Urge" concept car doubles as a controller for an embedded Xbox 360, allowing parked gamers to use the vehicle's real steering wheel and pedals to operate Project Gotham Racing 3. (There are pics of the car in action at MPH Magazine's website.)

The Urge will be displayed at an upcoming auto show, allowing eager PGR fans a chance to get behind the wheel and fire up the Xbox 360's stunning graphics on the car's 7-inch rear-view video screen. At this size, does it even matter whether or not the screen supports the 360's High Definition output?
