Engadget reports on Fanatec's announcement over Facebook that they will be releasing an adapter for their 360 racing wheels and will also soon release brand new wheels for the Xbox One as well. More information inside.
Great news for fans of Fanatec, both new purchasers and owners of the 360 wheel.
Yeah, I like their products.
If only Logitech is doing the same for theirs on the PS4. I hope Sony will come out with the adapter themaelves if Logitech refuse to come out with a solution.
There IS an adapter that allows the use of a g27 with the ps4. It's called Cronusmax. It allows the use of any controller with any console. Look it up.
@Sourav, Any console but the PS4. A PS4 apperently checks every 30 secs (or 10 mins, not sure) if the controller in use has a certain chip, no chip means no play. And the Cronusmax only has 1 input. Perhaps if someone builds an adapter for this adapter;) Bastards really thought this trough. Except one thing: there's a lot of PS racefans that haven't bought their PS4 yet because of this.
I remember last year before the consoles are released, there was uproar about the Xbone not gonna support 360's peripherals and the PS4 was gonna be the same. I tweeted Yoshida asking specifically about the Logitech wheels but never got any reply. Kinda sad to find out the answer like this.
dammit dammit dammit just recently sold my $600 csr setup for a g27 and the adapter.
Amen. That really made me mad that they weren't compatible.
Son of a b!#ch! I gave my fanatec setup to my son!
Now that's the way to do it. Good work. You paying attention Logitech and Sony? You're really sourring my anticipation for racing games this gen.
Amen to that. DriveClub will be out this week, supporting not 1 but 2 wheels...the TS300 no one has and the T80 no one wants, because it's utter garbage. The official DriveClub wheel. Next month we see Project Cars. It supports all our Logitechs, but only on PC. And not a single word from Sony, Evolution, Shuhei Yoshida, nobody. Like it doesn't matter. It matters everything for racingfans.
It also supports the T500, BTW. Interestingly enough, that also goes to show the "security chip" story is at least partly BS because those came out before the PS4 was even announced.
Now only if they could do the same for ps3 to ps4 wheels.
Can someone send me a link to this? I am a little confused. It says a adapter to use current fanatec, but the story says a base unit. This sounds more like another pricey wheel base. I only ask as i own a fanatec forza csr, elite pedals and 6 shifter. I also received an email 2 weeks ago saying as i am a previous customer, i am invited to have a special pre order price for there new line of brushless wheel that will be available to work with next gen consoles. All you do to interchange between consoles is buy the wheel on its own that is compatible with your version. I hope there is a simple adapter instead of a new wheel base as mines perfect and got no intention of selling.
I'm also curious about this since reading. I am mixed just as you are since it says an adapter but seems to only mention the new v2 wheel base. If you find out please post it here or msg me, since my csr elite is sitting here not in use and i'd love to use it for the xb1 and the ps4. one can dream.....
Yeah. Will do m8. Im digging some info. Does your elite csr remove from base? Mine is the standard csr. I believe mine don't. Im keeping mine incase. However i have got the t300rs for ps4/3 so i can do driveclub and project cars. An adapter for fanatec on xbox one would cover all consoles.
i wish microsoft would make an adapter so i could use the original xbox racing force feedback wheel with their racers.
The sales man in game said the exact same thing to me whilst i was purchasing the xbox one.
