    Hi guys, I´m new here, and to be honest, I don´t understand anything about this. I just want a good system who gives me fun, and of course, the reliability is important, and also the (future) support and warranty.

    Actually, I use the ps4. (These systems will work on a ps5?)

    I have 3000€ to spend and I can reach 5000€ if it worths.

    I've seen these systems and I don't know if they work with ps4. Some of them seem old to me because they have videos from 2016 and we are in 2019, that gives me a bad feeling.

    - Vector GT1 (DOF2) - I don't see any news about this system, seems old.

    - Prosimu T1000 3M (Its French and I live in France).

    - Simxperience Stage 4

    - Next Level Racing Motion Platform V3

    - Motion Gear 4S Motion Simulator System (GT gear)

    - Atomic A3 - This one seems great, and I don't mind to spend 7000€, but seems that does not work with the ps4, I'm not sure.

    What is your opinion? Should I wait?

    Sorry about my grammar, I'm not English.

    Thank you in advance.

    Buying sim racing stuff for console is like putting 355 wide racing tyres on your 40ps fiat uno :)
    It dosnt make sense-there is no support for all the cool things.
    Ps4 isnt for simracing, compared to pc you have only half ffb update rate, poor performance/framerates and almost zero support for sim racing equipment. There is no vr, no multiscreen, no mod support.
    Forget ps4/ps5/xbox if you want join simracing. You need to buy or build a PC then the big world of simracing opens the door.
    Ps4 is only for gt-sport, which dosnt even support changing the FoV :)

    Usually, I play more ps4, than pc, I have the new Alienware 51m, and I also have 1 tower.
    It is possible to connect these systems in Alienware 51m?

    Vesaro is impossible for me, I love them, but I can't spend that so much.
    I checked the IMSIM and the simulator seems great (DOF3), what a design! I hope the price could be also good!

    Yes 20-50K is beyond my reach, their rigs are insane.

    Back on planet earth...
    Good PC (tower)
    Next Level Racing Motion Platform V3
    Direct Drive wheel
    80/20 Rig
    All are attainable within your budget by far.

    My personal opinion? Don't waste money on motion rigs.

    First you need to pay for the PC-build. Motion rigs should be the last investment if you want a complete simrig in my opinion.

    - pedals
    - rig
    - wheel
    - shifters
    - steering wheels
    - PC
    - screens/vr
    - various accesories (wind, button boxes etc.)
    - Motion

    Hello, and thank you for your opinions and to help me.
    Actually, I have the Alienware 51m, and I bought yesterday the Thrustmaster t-gt, without the shift.
    I start to think to buy a normal cockpit, I don't know... There is any system who works with ps4 and pc? I also have the ps4 VR, and the TV Q8C, that's why the PC isn't my priority... I don't know what to do.

    Are you going for VR or not?

    There is no motion platform for PS4 that works well. There is:
    https://www.caniseng.com/

    But it uses steering inputs to simulate motion and not directly from the sim. I suspect it will never work as well then PC-based systems. Also it requires you to send in your wheel, because it needs to be modded.

    Since your French, like yourself already listed, I suggest:

    http://www.prosimu-shop.com/

    They are based in France, so shippingcost should be minimal compared to others. You can see a review here:



    So for motion you should be concentrating on PC based racing.

    Prosimu t1000 seems great, but if I buy the vesaro gamer stage 1? If I change my mind, and I decide to use the PC I can upgrade it. I'm not sure if I can upgrade the Prosimu.
    What do you think?

    Try a motion system before you buy one. I always wanted a motion platform until I got to try one and was immediately sold on the idea that I don't want one at all.

    Hi, guys! I don't have the option to try it...
    I'm between the vesaro gamer version and I can upgrade it in the future, or the new rseat s1.
    Which one would you choose? I'm more inclined to choose the vesaro, their rig in from 2013, but aesthetically I like it more than rseat.
    Which do you think it would be better? What do you prefer, and why?

    Hmmm.. the Vesaro seems less comfortable, but it wouldn't be a big deal, I think.
    The problem that concerns me more is, I don't know if it would be possible to upgrade the Rseat S1 to a sim rig. I can upgrade the Vesaro to a simRig, but I'm not sure about the S1. I've seen the DOF3 in S1, it seems a cube, aesthetically is horrible, horrible, horrible... Link here

    Get a PC or laptop, dude. Both of them are more flexible than a console system if you want variety gaming and the fact that you already have a ps4.

    You could ask these guys to build you your own motion platform.

    https://motionsystems.eu/how-to-choose-a-motion-platform/


    :D


    It is my personal opinion that oversteer (180° lock to lock)/understeer and probably roll are the only DoF's you really need. This in combination with the correct FFB and a tactile rig (like the buttkicker) could be the perfect cockpit.
