Thrustmaster Debuts Ferrari and Microsoft Licensed Xbox 360 Racing Wheel
August 21st, 2011
There are tons of racing wheels out there for PS3 racing games and some of them have Force Feedback tech inside to make them more realistic. There are racing wheels for the Xbox 360 as well, but many of them just aren’t that good. Thrustmaster has announced the pending launch of a new racing wheel for the Xbox 360 that is licensed by Microsoft and Ferrari.
The racing wheel is called the Ferrari 458 Italia Racing Wheel for Xbox 360 and it may be the perfect racing wheel for the coming Forza 4 game. The racing wheel is a replica of the one from inside an actual 458 Italia and has a bunch of buttons on it to control the racing action.
The wheel is 11-inches in diameter and has paddles for gear shifting. It uses an automatic centering system with bungee cords rather than motors and has a brake and gas pedal system as well. The racing wheel will launch this October for $89.99 (USD).
