    2 pedals…? Also if PC compatible why not PS3/4 compatible?

      The third pedal and H-shifter are of course paid addons. I presume for PS3 use they want you to buy a T500RS too.

      Probably is but Microsoft won’t allow them to say this? LOL

      in a french shop yesterday, i saw a Thrustmaster TX80 wheel (blue pack box) only for ps3/ps4, and a TX100 (black pack box) for pc, i think its this one no?

      • oxia

        my bad, im wrong sorry the wheels i saw are T80 & T100 Wheels…not the same thing^^

  • John Krisfalusci

    Wait a minute, T3PA pedals and Th8A shifter?!?! I WANT REVIEWS FOR THIS ASAP!!! I wonder if the Th8A will be better than the Th8 RS shifter and possibly better than the new fanatec Clubsport Shifter?! I can’t wait!! ^^

      Better than the new, switchable Fanatec Clubsport Shifter? Almost a guaranteed NO.

    H.E.A.R.T HallEffect AccuRate Technology™ …. lol

  • Andy Thompson

    Looks nice. Hopefully someone will test one side by side with a CSW.

  • Vedster

    Looks ok, but not at price they want for it. They are cashing in on Xbox one compatibility. I watched unboxing video, for the most part it looks cheap, loads of cheap looking plastic.

  • Ghoults

    Hmm so is this better or worse wheel than the t500rs (if we ignore the pedals)??

    • Vedster

      I think it will not be as good, we will not know for sure until some proper reviews.

      • Smithaz

        I read a review on amazon saying it wasnt as strong as the T500.

  • Josh Desotell

    I own it. It’s pretty good. Better than the 360 wheel with the 458 wheel. You HAVE to get the firmware updates if you want it to run properly.
    However one issue I have is that there seems to be no connector for the Xbox One microphone/headset. Forced to use Kinect to talk to friends. Other than that, pretty happy with it. Can’t wait to see what F1, DiRT, and Project CARS are like with it.

    • Vedster

      Have you tried on PC?

      • Josh Desotell

        No. Not yet. Having PC problems
