Playstation 4: PLEASE make an official racing wheel!

5 replies 2128 views Edited May 2, 2013

Please make a official genuine Sony racing wheel compatible with DriveClub and all future racing games on the PS4. There is a HUGE racing fan base out there that are losing interest from this specific genre over the last few years due to the same racing experience in every game. Its the 21st Century! Lets change the way we play racing games! We need a OFFICIAL racing wheel, with realistic feedback! One that imitates driving a real car, with stick shift, and clutch pedal for all those that are up for the challenge. One we can clamp to a sturdy coffee table. Not one of those flimsy cheap feeling logitechs.

 

Id love to see at least some of these ideas:

- Vibration when driving off track, (gravel, bumping into other vehicles)

- Paddle Shifters, Clutch, Shift Stick.

- Maybe a compatible Racing seat? for those who are willing to put out the extra dollars for the extreme experience.

 

Im sure this can all be done with todays technology. Thank you for DriveClub. That game makes my mouth water. I cant wait.

 

- From a lifelong Sony Fan. Please take the time to consider this idea. Thanks again.

I agree, a realistic racing wheel would sweet. I must say, though, that Gran Turismo 6 will probably be better than Drive Club Smiley Tongue 2,000 cars, maybe? *Drools*

But to be honest, there's plenty of options already for racing wheels, and they have just about all the features you listed.

Funny, I was talking with my son when he was going to bed about my GT3 steering wheel after he asked if it was better to have a stick shift or automatic, and then after that I was just chatting with a buddy I haven't played with in awhile. He was talking about getting a Ferrari Steering Wheel for his PC he just built. Then I come on here and there's this thread. lol. Weird.

 

I loved my Gran Turismo 3 A-Spec Steering Wheel I got when it came out. Force feedback, felt solid, clamped to a table, F1 shifters on the back of the wheel. Very nice. I liked that I could tell from the feedback of the wheel that I was losing grip and could adjust using the analog pedals. Wish I would have never sold it to my brother in law.

 

Think I'll get this one next. Wonder if it'll work with my Vita. lol.
