Could it be?
Another no FFB device?
Actually, I think they can reproduce ffb. Supposedly they plan to support the g27 and then the fanatec csr.
It will only be FFB emulation via rumble I predict. Fanatec can't even convert the two types FFB protocols and they spend their lives looking at the coding. It different and more complex than sending button pushes into a box and then forwarding those commands to the console.
We'll see though. The new XID for Xbox one and HID share a bit more in common now but I'm not convinced it's enough to make conversions any simpler because its still the same base code..... I think.
Here's the first known footage of this device working with a wheel. No FFB or even rumble yet.
I still don't think it will ever be a worthwhile purchase for anyone serious about FFB.
Well, still somewhat better than a $400 non working wheel....
Since the Xbox wheel works and is wireless the Fanatec wheels should work too since they use the same wireless protocol. No FF probably but if they get the force feedback working via an update I may have to get an Xbox one. I do have to wonder if Microsoft can disable the device via and update. I am sure they will if they can.
If it stays without real FFB that $500 investment is worth about $150 in realistic value, since I'm sure there will be non-ffb wheels retailing for that price soon. I really just can't see the point in chasing this, even though I own a fanatec.
If they can and do it will be because of the macro capabilities of the device.
Seeing that MS did a deal with Fanatec releasing the CSR with FM4 only a year or 2 back; i hope they won't be about it and do their best to make it compatible with the Xbone if they can.
It will pull a lot of CSR owners over to buy a Xbone (myself included).
