Thrustmaster Xbox 360 Wheel Sneak Peek
A few days ago, Thrustmaster released a mysterious teaser video, hinting at a new product.
Some watchful VirtualR readers instantly picked up on the garage number 360 in the video, reasoning that it has to be Xbox 360 related and it is!
Thrustmaster has just released a second video, giving us a sneak peek at the new wheel. The shown off wheel resembles the F458 Italia wheel that was released a year ago, unfortunately while adding Xbox 360 compatibility, this wheel came without Force Feedback, bumping it instantly off the wish list of most more serious racing gamers.
The video mentions “totally new sensations” which could be a hint of FFB having been added to the new version. We also get to see a medal-plate pedal set while the F48 Italia wheel had all-plastic pedals.
Thrustmaster will reveal the product in full on August 15th, hopefully this wheel will be a full-scale replacement to the F430 FFB wheel that did offer great quality and value, selling for way under 100 Euros.
