The Best Steering Wheels for PS4 Gamers  April 30, 2016 – 10:37 am

PS4 Steering wheelThere’s nothing quite like the feel of a realistic steering wheel when you’re playing a racing game. Sure, you can use a controller (even the wonderful DualShock 4) to control the on-screen action, but the subtlety of control and immersion-factor of an actual wheel cannot be surpassed if you’re really into racing. Given the PS4’s relatively new status on the console scene, you might think that there aren’t that many options available for the serious Sony racing fan. In short, the options are rather sparse at the moment, nevertheless, there are some great options out there for those who want to take their simulation to the next level. Here are some of the best steering wheels that all PlayStation 4 gamers with an interest in driving titles should check out as quickly as possible…

Officially Licensed Compact Racing Wheel (PS4)In terms of features and licensing, Thrustmaster’s T80 Driveclub edition racing wheel is more or less (currently) at the top of the heap if we’re talking about the PS4. As its name clearly implies, this control device is meant to work in tandem with the upcoming release of the game “Driveclub” which is set to hit store shelves in October. Of course it’s not without its faults; for example, it doesn’t currently provide support for Need for Speed: Rivals.MS4R Home Racing Simulator (PS4) Whether or not that makes a difference, the unit is certainly of excellent quality and will most definitely support many of the upcoming releases headed our way. Of course you can always use it with your various PS3 racing games in the mean time.

In terms of features, the T80 wheel incorporates linear resistance as well as auto-centering, both of which help to ultimately increase driver control. The unit also comes with a clamping system which you can use to attach it to virtually any solid surface, like a desk. It’s also a comfortable-feeling device, with a rubber coating that helps to maintain control, even in tense, sweaty situations. In terms of controls, the T80 has no less than 11 buttons as well as a directional pad and of course the two large pedals for floor control. Speaking of which, there’s excellent detailed control with the floor unit, which is a must for precision-based driving. Furthermore, if you’re the type of racer who prefers manual shifting, there’s even a system for that built into the wheel itself.

  • avatar Need for speed rivals/ps4 Steering wheel support? | Yahoo Answers
    • No, it does not support steering wheels. The PS4 itself is compatible with all steering wheels that work with the PS3, as confirmed by DriveClub dev Col Rodgers.
      You're right, Joshua. I guess the only thing we can do is wait for a racing game to come out on the PS4 and try it for ourselves. Let's just hope they don't pull a Microsoft and make every single last-gen wheel incompatible.

  • avatar Is there a new steering wheel coming out for the xbox 360 for Need for Speed Shift
    • Yes. The wheels, which will be playable for the first time at the E3 Expo, introduce new features to the Xbox 360. It is developed by Fanatec in collaboration with Turn 10 Studios, a Redmond, Washington-based video game developer.
