postheadericon XCM’s F-1 Converter lets XBox 360 players get behind G25, G27 racing wheels (video)

We’ve never been shy about our affection for Logitech’s G25 and G27 steering wheels, and now we can share our love with our friends of the Xbox 360 persuasion. With the brand new F-1 converter from XCM, die hard Xbox 360 and Xbox 360 Slim fans can get behind the same wheels we’ve been behind since 2006. If that wasn’t reward enough, the F-1 also sports a built-in combo-attack memory function for fighting games, and rumble support is baked in for good measure. So go ahead, ye of the XBox 360 ilk, plug her in, caress the contours of her beautiful leather-wrapped curves, feel the way she kicks — we’ll try not to get jealous. Video game voyeurs can check out the F-1 in action after the jump.

[Thanks, Roadography]

postheadericon Thrustmaster T500RS steering wheel unveiled: $599 of Gran Turismo perfection

First the tease, now the payoff. Thrustmaster has officially announced the full specs and price for its T500RS steering wheel and pedal set, otherwise known as the official driving simulator for Gran Turismo 5. The T500RS purportedly lets “users truly feel the emotions experienced by drivers on real racing circuits,” though whether this includes feelings of unquenchable anger from being put into the wall at Daytona is unclear. A contactless magnetic sensor system known as HallEffect AccuRate Technology gives gamers sixteen-bit precision input that represents a significant upgrade over the twelve-bit version in the Ferrari Wireless GT Cockpit 430 Scuderia Edition. Additionally, 1080 degree wheel rotation gives drivers a half-turn more than Logitech’s Driving Force GT, and the system comes with fully adjustable pedals configurable for floor mounted (F1-style) and suspended (GT-style) positions. Slated for a late December or mid January release, depending on your location, the T500RS has a hefty list price of $599.99 MSRP, but how else will you find out what a Bugatti Veyron really handles like on the ‘ring?

postheadericon Fanatec Porsche 911 GT2 racing wheel steers its way into online availability

For some of you, it wouldn’t be Gran Turismo 5 unless there’s a force-feedback steering wheel at the helm, but which one to choose? If history’s any judge, that depends on how just how badly you want to feel like you’re driving a Porsche. $250 buys you the Fanatec Porsche 911 GT2, another officially-licensed Xbox 360 wireless wheel, which features fourteen hidden buttons, a 900° steering angle, and the exact same soft Alacantra leather you’ll find on the real deal. (R.I.P, Khan.) Like its oh-so-similar predecessors, the controller also plays nice with PS3 and PC via USB cable, and an extra $250 for the Clubsport Edition gets you a stick shift, carbon fiber paddle shifters, and some seriously high-end adjustable aluminum pedals. Read up on all the details at our source link. You’ll want to be prepared for that heart-to-heart with your wallet.
