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."

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.

Pintheshadows980d ago

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!!!

spaceg0st980d ago

Seriously, why buy a wheel without force feedback?!? Crazy

thedon8982z980d ago

@spaceg0st : exactly what I was thinking!!!!

WeAreLegion980d 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_980d 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.

thedon8982z980d ago

Kool, when the time comes I will keep that in mind!!!

Enemy980d ago

Oh man I would love to play Driveclub with this.

zeroskie979d 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.

NaughtyGods980d ago (Edited 980d 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.

aLucidMind980d ago

Place the thrustmaster between your legs.

TIER1xWOLFPACKx980d 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

NaughtyGods979d 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.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney980d ago (Edited 980d ago )

I am gonna use this to play infamous!

Sharingan_no_Kakashi980d ago

Please give this man some bubbles lol.

Skate-AK980d ago

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_980d ago

I'm going to play infamous with the power glove.

_FantasmA_980d 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.
