As Polyphony Digital gears up to launch the Gran Turismo series on the PlayStation 4, Thrustmaster is releasing an upgraded version of the T300RS racing wheel, dubbed T300RS GT Edition. The T300RS GT Edition comes with an industrial brushless motor, offering full Force Feedback and 1080 degrees of rotation.
The dual-belt system used on the T300RS GT Edition gives it great flexibility, so racers can enjoy the wheel’s silent turns and swerves. While the brushless motor delivers great flexibility and silent maneuverability, the H.E.A.R.T (HallEffect AccuRate Technology), gives it incredible precision thanks to contactless magnetic sensors delivering long-lasting 16-bit precision. The T300RS GT Edition includes internal memory as well as upgradeable firmware, which means you can keep up-to-date with the most recent upgrades and improvements.
The T300RS GT Edition comes with a 3-pedal set including clutch, brake and accelerator. The 3-pdeal set helps deliver greater immersion and realism, with adjustable, long-travel metal pedals where the height and spacing position of the accelerator and clutch pedals can be adjusted. To simulate racing authenticity, the brake pedal offers progressive resistance as well. The pedal heads were designed specifically for this controller and are not similar to the ones that come with the regular T300RS.
The racing wheel is made from metal and comes with a rubber trim. The whole wheel can be fully detached, courtesy of the Thrustmaster Quick Release system. It includes the official PlayStation 4 buttons (PS, SHARE, OPTIONS), giving racers instant access to the system menus and special features. With a 28cm diameter and a metal central hub, the steering wheel has been designed to provide to deliver maximum realism.
The T300RS GT Edition is now available in the US for a suggested retail price of $399.99
