DriveHub Allows You to Use (Almost) Any Driving Wheel on Any Console

Hardware 910 August 19, 2017 by

One of the great bugbears for driving game fans is wheel compatibility. Unless you’re willing to spend huge sums, one wheel won’t work on both major consoles. And, it seems, old wheels are obsoleted every time a new console comes out anyway.

The CronusMax DriveHub, created by Collective Minds, aims to change all that.

CronusMax describes the DriveHub as a “revolutionary, industry first cross over gaming adapter”. It allows the user to plug in virtually any racing wheel and connect it to an XBox One or PlayStation 4. The DriveHub detects the type of wheel and configures it to the console automatically. It’s a plug and play system, so there’s no need to connect the DriveHub to a PC.

The system supports just about any wheel with Force Feedback, dating back even to PlayStation 2 wheels. The full list of currently supported wheels is below:

Fanatec

ClubSport Wheel Base (and V2 & V2.5), CSL Elite, CSR, CSR Elite, Porsche Carrera, Porsche 911 Turbo/Turbo S, Porsche 911 GT2, Porsche 911 GT3 RS/GT3 RS v2

Logitech

Driving Force EX, Driving Force GT, Driving Force Pro, G25, G27, G29, G920, MOMO Force, MOMO Racing

Microsoft

Xbox 360 Wireless Racing Wheel

Thrustmaster

Ferrari 458 Spider, T80, T150 Ferrari/Pro, T300 Ferrari GTE/RS, T500RS, TMX Force Feedback, TMX Pro, TX Ferrari 458 Italia Edition

According to the documentation, the DriveHub supports all standard force feedback protocols, which it says includes, but is not limited to, spring force, dampers, collision force, road, surface and airborne effects.

The CronusMax store prices the DriveHub at $89.99/£69.96, with a release date set as the end of August 2017. Handily, that’s just in time for this fall’s bumper crop of racing games, including Forza Motorsport 7, Project CARS 2, GT Sport, F1 2017 and WRC7.
