Thrustmaster has revealed their latest toy for the racing fanatics, the T500 RS Gran Turismo 5 Controller. The whole thing weighs almost 12kg and is priced at $600. The wheel can be used to do a 1080 degree rotation or three full turns. The gear shift levers, wheel spokes and pedals are made entirely from metal for extensive durability. The wheel will also give 65W of motorized force feedback.
The goal that I set for the Thrustmaster team was to design for me the most precise wheel ever developed, without any latency – to accurately reproduce the sensations of GT5, and let users truly feel the emotions experienced by drivers on real racing circuits
The controller will be shipped out in January of 2011.
