As most of you probably know, i really like Fanatec stuff.
They call it Germaneering. All about quality and providing the best possible solutions for your driving games.

Currently driving a Club Sport Wheel and Club Sport Pedals.

Soon® there will be a Club Sport Shifter as well.

They also have color kits now to customize your pedals, lol. I prefer the stock ones, but it is a nice feature 8-)

Fanatec on PS4

Post by MadManCK » Wed Aug 21, 2013 3:44 pm

Fanatec Wheels will work with the PS4. XBox ONE still unconfirmed. Maybe only with an adapter or new firmware.

:character-blues:


I am currently here at E3 and a lot of things are going on. It is exciting to see a new console generation coming up.

At the moment we still did not get a final confirmation whether our Xbox 360 wheels will work on Xbox One natively (USB) or with an adaper or upgrade kit or not at all. Therefore we cannot promise you anything other than that we are trying to find a solution and if MS allows it then we would certainly support any solution which increases the compatibility of your XBox 360 wheels.

You can be sure that we are working to make our wheels compatible with the next gen consoles or develop solutions which will provide compatibility but at this point it is too early to discuss it.

In any case our wheels will work with GT6 and after playing it, I am quite excited about the improvements of the physics.

So what is your opinion?

Xbox One or PS4?

Forza Motorsport 5 or GT6?

New Rims for the CSW wheelbase.

The Club Sport Weel is equipped with a quick release mechanism, allowing different rims to be mounted on the wheelbase.
Right now i have the BWM GT Rim and the Formula Rim.

There are a few new rims coming up and they look very cool. But the price is also very steep. Some cost about 350€ and that is just for an addon wheel. To compare: a brand new T500RS including everything will cost around 380€ and is a very good wheel.

I guess Thomas is now targeting the connoisseurs only.

Only wheel of the new batch that is really appealing to me is the classic rim. That will be awesome for driving the good old classics with the stick shift. And you can always hook up a controller next to it, to move around in games like TDU2. In fact i have done that numerous of times in the Casino as that works a lot better than with a wheel, lol.

Here some images of the new wheels for the Club Sport Wheelbase:

Post by MadManCK » Mon May 19, 2014 3:16 pm

Fanatec is involved with Vogel in creating a driving school rig. It includes driver training software and looks very rigid.
