Racing Wheel Discussion (PS4 | PC)
« on: June 10, 2014, 05:25:46 pm »



Thrustmaster T300RS

YEAHHH! Thrustmaster made the first force feedback wheel which will be compatible with PS4, PS3 and PC! WOW enough?

The extra parts for the T500RS will be compatible with this wheel which is nice i believe and it's like the 'young brother' of that monster T500RS!

I can't write everything here, you can find many interesting informations here: http://www.thrustmaster.com/en_UK/press/t300-rs-first-official-force-feedback-wheel-playstation-4

Thats nice, but there needs to be a wheel/pedal set at the 100 to 150 price point. That price quote is simply not affrodable to most people. They have a chance to hoover the market up after Logitech's withdrawel, but they need a wheel as good as the DFGT, at as good a price point.

yn i completely agree, it's very expensive but i think they're not 'targeting' the DFGT wheel, but the G27. which is already a loss as it's totally wrong to come up with a wheel at 300+ euros with 2 pedals! it's a criminal!

and also it has many features and since it's the first one i guess they want to go for the best they can get.

but indeed there has to be a new wheel as good as the DFGT for the new gen. and in the same price.

those pedals look about as useful as a chocolate tea pot.

haha yeah indeed it's a bad combination with the wheel, they could have done a better job on them. however these are the same pedals with those they have with the T80 and T100 wheels. and i've tested them a few months before and they're not that bad. the throttle pedal was very accurate and deep and the brake resistance was fine. better than the DFGT ones.

Ha! Only PS4, PS3, and PC?

pffff.
I'm still waiting for PS2 support.  :24:

On topic though, that'll set you back a couple of pennies.

360, so around 300 I assume. I thought they already had that 500 GT wheel. I don't see the point in this? If you have enough money to buy thus, you more than likely can afford the 500 one.

But is the 500 one supported by PS4?

I believe so, they have talked about it in Driveclub videos. Thrustmaster have up to date PS4 drivers it seems, Logitech don't.

However i have read somewhere that ALL the ps3 wheels will work in the ps4 as long as the game producers include them in their games. If i find the page where i read it i'll post it here.

That's the problem, the devs of Driveclub (a Sony studio no less) have said they would like to include all wheels, but it depends on the manufacturers making drivers for the PS4. I won't pretend to understand it, but it does seem very stupid.

Personally i would rather not spend 300 on a wheel, I could put it to better needs else where. I would pay 150 max for a wheel. To be honest i'd rather just stick with my GTDF, Yes i have a problem with the brake pedal with it but the feel of it for the price is very good. I hope i can use it for my PS4 as i dont fancy splashing out on a new one. But saying that i dont think i would ever go back to using the pad for league races.

I agree with you fish, They should release a wheel in the 150 price range. The wheel that is posted doesn't look like it's worth 300. G27 build quality looks better. The pedals dont look great but you never know!

I been thinking about picking up the T80 entry level model up, ready for project cars. Its priced around 80 - 90 in the uk.
Only use it for ps4 so i don't need anything more expensive.

It looks good, but from what I remember reading it doesn't have force feedback which is a little odd.

I'm banking on either Sony or Logitech pulling their fingers out for legacy wheel support.

How bloody difficult could it be.

Having never raced with a wheel, I suppose I don't feel the same anger.  It does seem a bit retarded though.  At least I know now if I do ever get a wheel I need to choose carefully.
