    It should have been Console compatible from the beginning.

    Blame MS and Sony for it. All they ever do is make you jump through hoops there is a reason why PC is the best if you want to pursue a hardcore sim racing hobby. Xbox and Playstation have always been restrictive unfortunately.

    I'm going to guess that this is going to be digital (on or off, no levels of intensity) ?

    They share the blame, and that's one of the reasons I primarily play on PC now. :D

    So... I paid $250 for my T300RS. I don't think I could justify paying $260 for one lever.

    Game changer for me this is - three of us are on warranty replacement G29s and lament being on console and having no handbrake.
    This coupled with the shift lights (albeit expensive) and leather wheel options means that when the inevitable failure happens again I'll ditch what's left of my setup and move to Thrustmaster.

    I only hope that Logitech give enough of a damn for their market to release something that'll compete on the G29 - but as it's a well established (read old) product I can't see them doing anything clever before a new model.

    Yeah, that's a tough price point. I imagined it would be more along the $150-$180 range. The PC one is $245. That's a big expense for an add on. Under $200 - I'd be all over it. For $250, it's going to have to be compatible with EVERY game I own. Still, it's awesome news. I've been waiting for Thrustmaster to make one of these for console.

    Real problem on console is quantity of usb port, if you have Wheel, shifter,handbrake, contrôler or buttonbox,headphone .
    Hub doesn't work well with GT or assetto
    I have 3 port on PS4 pro, that's not enough

    I use a generic powered 7-port hub. Haven’t had any problems yet...

    Also no problems here on normal 4port usb hub(8€). Wheel, keyboard, shifter & mouse(you can use in gt-s ^^). No problems in AC, PC2 and GT-s.
