Thrustmaster T500 RS Unboxed, First-Look Video with ISR

Hardware 98 January 4, 2011 by

The new “official” GT5 steering wheel, the Thrustmaster T500 RS, releases this Wednesday, and InsideSimRacing got their hands on an early unit to provide us with some much-needed details and first impressions.

As of right now, the wheel only works with GT5 on the PS3, but support for Codemasters and EA titles is reportedly coming soon. A Windows driver is also in the works, but with competitors such as the Fanatec GT2 already providing full PC and even Xbox 360 support out of the box, Thrustmaster would be wise to work as quickly as they can to support as many platforms as possible.

Though it’s still a bit too early to pass judgement on the T500, ISR’s first impressions seem to be very positive. With the wheel going on sale tomorrow, we’re sure to get even more reviews popping up here and around the web very soon. Stay tuned! Thanks to everyone who sent this in.
