- in the land of stupidity
A PS version is in the works. I hope he means a PS5 version.
Also I hope the youtube reviews don't miss this it.
Fanatec will most likely be forced by Sony to include a wheel with the PS5 version, so expect the extra cost of a wheel plus the cost of the PS chip.
Sony has always required any wheelbase to include a wheel so far to be licensed to work as a plug n play unit for Playstation.Yeah, that definitely a possibility. Probably why it's not been released yet. Endor and Sony are probably still in negotiations. Expect a PS version to cost at least $150us more.
I think when I bought my PS4 compatible CSL Elite bundle here in the U.S. I think it was about $100 more than the comparable Xbox/PC bundle.The difference between CSL Elite base V1.1(without Sony Chip) and CSL Elite base +(with Sony Chip) was 50 Euro.
DSL DD with the boost kit is is $479.Based on the previews I'll stick to my CSW 2.5 for now.
Might consider upgrading if something like a CSW DD comes out. There is certainly room in Fanatec's product range for that.
But if they made a Clubsport DD with say around a 12nm power output to fill that gap then being DD and 12nm of torque would actually more than justify the price increase.So I guess there is a room for another wheelbase if maybe they split the difference around the $800 mark but that would be a big step up from the CSW v2.5 that sold for $549.
Well so far this dd "pre order" has not been much different than any other recent new product launch. Got the e-mail from Fanatac about 70 minutes ago and have been trying to get on the U.S.A. web site and sign in to place the order and either the web site says internal server error or it will let me onto the account sign in page and then say cannot assign information to a user.
Cannot access the web site to do the pre order.
Considering that I actually just signed into my Fanatec account less than 24 hours ago I do know my information to sign in is correct.
Will keep trying for a bit but if I am not successful shortly guess I will have to scrap the upgrade idea, really do not need to upgrade so not the end of the world, just keep the $500 in my account instead of theirs.
I really like Barry's reviews as he disassembles the products and really examines the components used and the build quality of the product. Really no one else does what he does on the Sim gear.I think I’m gonna wait for a bit to see what Barry has to say about it.
I agree on the power pack pricing to a point but the end result is still the 8nm is roughly a 60% or so increase in the power output of the wheelbase motor over the 5nm cheaper unit and in the end how they limit that output whether through a plug in torque key in the base or just in the different power supply really does not matter when it comes to the end result.Well after thinking about it I’m going to wait for proper reviews,I’m having a hard time justifying the power pack pricing as i would need the 8nm version to make it worthwhile,If the inevitable Clubsport version comes out for around 800 euros i would be kicking myself for jumping in
