Fanatec and Polyphony Digital have announced a great steering wheel for PS5 and PS4. It is dedicated to fans of the Gran Turismo series.
The kit includes a steering wheel on the motor shaft and pedals. The rest depends on the version we choose.
PS5 and PS4 with next generation steering wheel
Fanatec and Polyphon Digital have announced an extremely attractive steering wheel for the PS5 and PS4 consoles. Interestingly, the set is also expected to work with PC and support “most essential racing games.” However, I have to admit that this is all going to be really fantastic, and if the developers live up to their intentions and provide “real simulation equipment,” the steering wheel could turn out to be really good equipment.
There is little such equipment designed for specific consoles and games. Gran Turismo fans may already be rubbing their hands, as they will be able to purchase the GT DD Pro, a set of steering wheel pedals that should present us as realistically as possible.
When the steering wheel is mounted directly to the motor shaft, there is no belt or gears to diminish the feedback effect. Direct Drive is the obvious choice for all professional simulator drivers and racing enthusiasts and is now available to a wider audience.
Description of the device on the official website
The creators do not hide that they used ideas suitable for the periphery, dedicated to the greatest veterans of the car simulator. The steering wheel itself has a small screen that displays speed information and a full set of the most important buttons, but its design is what stands out above all.
You will find more detailed information on the official website , pre-order has also started. Interestingly, the hardware cost was “pretty good” because the cheapest base version costs about $ 700. Its premiere is scheduled for March 2022.
