Take The Tech Demo Tour Of The New PlayStation Move Wheel

There are lots of expensive racing wheels out there but if you've got the precise PlayStation Move, there's another intriguing option.

Sony Computer Entertainment Research and Development staffer Anton Mikhailov takes you through a great demonstration of the new Move Racing Wheel, which works with all sorts of racing games (it isn't just limited to simulators, as we understand it).

Supposedly offering "second-to-none mechanics to control all aspects" of your most-loved racing title, you'll be able to use this peripheral for cars, MX vehicles, and even motorcycles. You can pick up the Wheel when it hits store shelves this fall for $39.99, and we know it'll be compatible with the likes of Gran Turismo 5, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, Burnout Paradise, MotorStorm: Apocalypse, and even the upcoming LittleBigPlanet Karting. A real wheel for Sackboy!

It seems like a fantastic idea and should offer pinpoint precision; that's really what the Move does best, even if sometimes it does this too well. I'm guessing you're gonna need a light touch with this thing, and I wonder if it'd be better braced against something...you know, like how most racing wheels go under your legs.

Talk about your oversteering. I just got my first home steering wheel and I'm surprised at how much more fun it makes racing games. I think if I ever get a wheel for my PS3 it would have to be something solid that I can grab onto in front of me with gas pedals instead of something I've got to hold up to the camera.

For your DC, right?

Which one did you wind up getting?

Yup for the Dreamcast, there are TONS of racing games. Feels like I'm at the old arcade.

I got the Interact V3FX. I have no reference point but it is a solid piece of hardware with all the bells n whistles.

Also Saint I found a decent price on that arcade joystick so you can all off your hounds :) DC also seems to be the home of dozens of amazing fighting games.

So I'm set, got the 1080p upscaler, the wheel, and the stick. When the games are all free online now it's hard not to indulge.

World,
Cool, glad you were able to get everything you wanted.

Free games? You got like a homebrew setup on your DC?
Damn, I've only got 53 games in my DC collection, so I could certainly use some more games myself, LOL

Sites like "TheIsoZone dot com" and "Emuparadise dot me" have the image files for download, just follow the burning instructions onto a regular CD and bang you got a game. No console modding required.

I have to admit, the motorcycle shifting looks cool, but in the end, I'm gonna have to hold this thing up in the air. I can only hold it up for so long till my arms starts to break.

That's my concern about the Wii U tablet.

Nice idea, but I'm not willing to hold my hands in the air in front of me for any length of time when playing a video game. And no pedals?

I love Sony's ingenuity, but this is a miss for me.

Driving wheels need to offer resistance when you turn them, and stop when you reach the max turn. They need to return to center when you let go of the grip. They need to feel attached to something.

In short, they need to be everything this product is not. :D

this is SO stupid!
WHOLE point of having a racing wheel setup is to have allot more control over the car.
this does not though, its restricted movement 180 degrees, theres no resistance, no re alignment, no pedals, about as point full and useful as a cup of water on a oil rig fire!
plus it requires the move, so that and this would cost what around 100 bucks?
why spend 100 bucks on this when you can get the logitech GT racing wheel for 100 bucks!?
i know, ill go spend 100000 on a 20 year old VW beetle what do you want a brand new Ferrari for!?
and $ony wonders why their stock is at the LOWEST rate in the companies HISTORY..............
stupid decisions like this, its a miracle the company is not bankrupt yet!
