First official PS4 racing wheel announced: the Thrustmaster T80 DriveClub Edition

VVV: "When Evolution Studios declared that Drive Club will support all PS4 wheels, it was surely only a matter of time before a wheel designed specifically for the PS4 would be announced. And now here it is: the Thrustmaster T80 Drive Club Edition." (Driveclub, Next-Gen, PS4, Thrustmaster)

Hmm never had a racing wheel because I never really liked racing games that much. But lately I have been interested in them an I want to see if a wheel will make the games more immersive while still being easy to use. Is a wheel really worth it or is a controller just as good? I may also condider the PS4 gun if the shooters support it like Move was supported by quite a few games that I have.

A wheel is most definitely worth for a game like GT5. The difference is night and day but don't get a cheap one.

You are so right, I have never been a big racing fan except for BURNOUT....but since PS4 has been announced I have a day 1 purchase, I feel for some reason inclined to want one for all my next-gen games that are racers, and that I do decide to purchase..So after looking at this one I like it but will wait until something like this comes along with force-feed back,I don't really care about the clutch..just give me everything this wheel has with force-feedback!!!
spaceg0st  +   824d ago
Seriously, why buy a wheel without force feedback?!? Crazy
thedon8982z  +   824d ago
@spaceg0st : exactly what I was thinking!!!!
WeAreLegion  +   824d ago
Agreed. Force feedback makes the game so much better.

Have either of you played Burnout: Paradise with a wheel? It's awesome! Better yet, have you played it with the Move racing wheel? Go try it, if you can. It's the most fun way to play the game!
_FantasmA_  +   823d ago
My first racing game was Midnight Club 2 and I still haven't found a better racing series. I have all the games except the first one. Burnout was okay, but I hated the time trials that some of them had, I just like taking down people and the crash events. The fist NFS Underground was good also, but too bad EA started sucking after that. Hopefully Midnight Club 5 will support this wheel.

When you start with a wheel, you probably will feel uncomfortable, but once you get the hang of it, it's pretty sweet.
thedon8982z  +   824d ago
Kool, when the time comes I will keep that in mind!!!
Enemy  +   824d ago
Oh man I would love to play Driveclub with this.
zeroskie  +   823d ago
if this wheel doesn't have force feedback, I would recommend buying a Logitech wheel for the PS3/PC. The difference is night and day.
NaughtyGods  +   824d ago
A stupid question: how do you handle with this? I know that on PC you just mount the wheel on a table and the gas under your table, but thats not the case with a console. Help.

Place the thrustmaster between your legs.
TIER1xWOLFPACKx  +   823d ago
It's exactly the same with console you mount it to a table, there is no difference between pc and console wheels they both mount the same
NaughtyGods  +   823d ago
my point is that i don't have a table at my livingroom, only a couch and the tv standing on a table far away.
I am gonna use this to play infamous!

On PS2 I played Mortal Kombat 3 with a Guitar Hero guitar. You couldn't move but the frets work for punching and kicking.
_QQ_  +   824d ago
I'm going to play infamous with the power glove.
_FantasmA_  +   823d ago
I'm going to use to pwn people in Killzone Shadowfall. I'm going to murder some PC elitists also in Battlefield 4 because wheel>mouse and keyboard. LOL jk.

Is that thing a steering wheel or a sex toy?
HammadTheBeast  +   824d ago
Ever heard of the song "No Lie" by 2chainz? There's a line in it that fits nicely with your comment.

Keyword steering wheel.

Does anyone know yet if Logitech PS3 wheels will work on the PS4? I have one and would like to play Drive Club with it, and don't really care to purchase a new wheel until I can get a really nice one.
Rhythmattic  +   824d ago
As for drive club supporting PS3 wheels.. Yes.


Edit: I guess its up to the developer...

I hope so, love my G25...

Not exactly confirmation.:( The article says that it has DS4 support, and some of the DS4 features aren't going to be in the PS3 wheels.

Maybe it'll work though. I know that wheels have their own API in games, and don't use standard controller mapping. If Logitech has a backwardly compatible driver for the devs, then it should be OK, sans specific DS4 features of course.

Thanks for posting.:)
Rhythmattic  +   823d ago
This is another link I found..


Knushwood Butt  +   823d ago
Yeah, hope I can use the G25 on PS4.
itisallaboutps  +   824d ago
I have my thrustmaster 500 and I love it. I just need a proper set up because I get back pains from a wooden chair haha
strigoi814  +   824d ago
I will buy this steering wheel if only GT6 is on PS4
WeAreLegion  +   824d ago
No force feedback?!? Nope. Definitely not getting it. I have a great Logitech wheel that will work just fine. ^_^ So excited for Driveclub!
AutoCad  +   823d ago
lol thats what i thought ..
NO force dfeedback steering wheels are a waste of money..I wonder if i will be able to use a CSR wheel on it though.
TheFutureIsBlue  +   823d ago
I'm using that as the nickname for my penis from now on. *thumbs up*
SniperControl  +   823d ago
I have a Logitech Driving Force EX wheel, does anybody know if it will work on PS4?

Hopefully it will work on Driveclub.
zeroskie  +   823d ago
They've said that PS3 wheels will work on PS4. And by 'they' i mean the developers of DriveClub.
SniperControl  +   822d ago
Thanks Zero, good to know.
pennywhyz  +   823d ago
They should start telling us what wheels are compatible with the PS4.
NateCole  +   823d ago
Sorry but i can't stop smiling about the name.
diehllane  +   822d ago
Only wheel I ever used was the Sega Saturn Arcade Racewheel.
Still have it.

I would consider a wheel for PS4 with the driving games coming out, but I would want a nice wheel that has the force feedback, just from the comments I'm reading on here.
Aztec_MC  +   815d ago
Hey that looks really cool, plus it's not that much especially for a next-gen wheel.
