Fanatec – Xbox One Compatability News
A few months ago when news broke that Microsoft’s Xbox One would not support Xbox 360 controllers such as Fanatec’s Porsche & CSR wheels, the German hardware maker announced to look into the possibility of providing existing customers with an adapter to make their wheels work with the new platform.
Things seem to be even more complicated than that though as Fanatec has now announced that the adapter is most likely not going to materialize:
So far there is no adapter solution to make an Xbox360 wheels compatible with Xbox One and it is unsure if this will be possible.
It’s not all lost for existing customers wanting to switch to the Xbox One though as Fanatec is working on a new Xbox One wheel that will most likely allow users to at least make use of their existing peripherals such as shifters and pedals:
But there is a high chance that you can use your pedals, rims and shifters with a potential new Fanatec wheel for Xbox One although we cannot confirm a launch date yet. This will save you a lot of money and you can keep using the equipment you prefer.
The mentioning of wheel rims indicates that the new Xbox One wheel will be a farily high-end affair, supporting detachable rims like the current Clubsport top of the line model for the PC & Playstation 3.
