Play Gran Turismo PSP with a Steering Wheel

Gran Turismo PSP 33 October 4, 2009 by

If you’ve played Gran Turismo PSP, the thought of hooking up a steering wheel to the little handheld console has probably crossed your mind. The only problem, of course, is that the PSP isn’t compatible with any wheel on the market – or so we thought. GTPlanet user tingri discovered the above clip created by YouTuber RacerS2, who’s done the impossible with a hacked PSP and a collection of other software programs. Although he doesn’t provide a tutorial on how to get this working yourself, you might want to consider the one big caveat before taking on a project like this: GT PSP doesn’t support analog gas or brake controls, so it’s all or nothing when you press the pedals.

Of course, don’t forget: you can use a PS3 controller with the new PSP Go and use its TV-Out functionality if you’re craving a ‘bigger’ experience. For now, though, RacerS2’s project may be the closest anyone can ever get to being ‘behind the wheel’ in Polyphony Digital’s portable racer.
