Thrustmaster T500RS – First Videos & Release Date
Thrustmaster has released the first videos of their upcoming high-end T500RS steering wheel, showing us the first footage of the impressive unit.
The first has been shown on Gran Turismo 5’s GT TV feature, the second video shows the wheel’s Force Feedback motors in action during a test run.
The T500RS comes with plenty of impressive features such as 1080 degree steering, double-belt driven Force Feedback, a seven-kilo pedal unit that can be used both with hanging and standing pedals and more. Right now, it’s unsure whether or not the T500RS will be PC-compatible, Thrustmaster’s info-material is strictly talking about Playstation 3 usage due to the wheel being endorsed by Gran Turismo.
All the features come with quite a hefty price tag as the wheel will sell for $599 in the United States and 499€ in Europe – The T500RS will be available starting January 5.
