Thrustmaster, the company which produces the T500RS – the “official” wheel for GT5 and GT6 – announced a new model today at the E3 game show in Los Angeles.
The new T300RS introduces full compatibility with the PlayStation 4 with the addition of the console’s new “Share” button, while retaining PS3 and PC compatibility as well. Angle rotation of up to 1080-degrees is supported, and the wheel is interchangeable with Thrustmaster’s Ferrari F1 Wheel, Ferrari GTE Wheel, and T500RS GT Wheels.
Unlike the T500, there is no clutch pedal, and the pedals themselves cannot be used in a top-hinged configuration. It is also worth noting the wheel does not display any Gran Turismo branding, with the PlayStation logo in its place at the center.
The generic branding likely means the wheel is targeted to buyers of Drive Club, Sony’s new first-party driving on the PS4, set for North American release on October 7, 2014.
The T300RS goes on sale August 15, 2014 for €369.99; pricing in other regions has yet to be released.
