Thrustmaster Ferrari 458 Spider Racing Wheel
Worth the money
I just purchased this wheel on Black Friday for 79.99... and it's worth every bit of that... even at the 99.99 price it's a bargain. Like mentioned it doesn't offer any force feedback but you get use to it quick. The one thing I wish it would do is retain it's sensitivity settings after you save it. You have to use it on lower settings for Forza and it has to be adjusted before each use. It's a simple process but one I think they could've done a little better on. Other than that... it's a great setup for the money and I would suggest any novice game racer to get it.
Awesome for the value! Great buy.
First off let me start by addressing the weight issue. it being light does not make it bad as long as you have a tv tray that you can set up to clamp it down on or any table that is not incredibly thick. while it does not have feed back it does have very strong bands in it for resistance that work great. The wheel its self has 4 settings for sensitivity and 3,4 our recommended for Forza. great buy and i would defiantly recommend it to a friend or family member.
Great handling racing wheel!
This wheel works great with the Forza games! Need For Speed doesn't support it for some reason. I have had a racing wheel for every generation of Xbox and this is the best I've used! It only mounts on a table, a TV tray works great, 4 sensitivity settings you can change while driving is fast and easy. No plug for a headset but you can use a regular controller at the same time so I'm sure you can plug a headset in there. I was unsure when buying it but glad I did. Worth the money and my racing is better than a normal controller. Higold recommended!
I wish I didnt buy it
The steering wheel is so tight to turn its rediculous.
The adjusting pedals are a joke.
In order to really enjoy it you will have to buy their stand that costs hundreds
Wish I never bought it
Excited for a cheaper wheel for the xbox one instead of $399 for all of the other ones. I really dont wan't to spend the same for the wheel as the xbox.
99 dollars? Would have paid 200. Wheel looks amazing out of the box. VERY SOLID. SIMPLE to set up. Incredibly accurate. Zero lag. 4 sensitivity settings makes any car remarkably realistic to handle. Been gaming for 12 years and will scrutinize any game/accessory to the fullest. Easily one of the best gaming purchases I have ever made. Good for you guys.
Uncompatible~Need For Speed/Xbox1
Right now only works on Forza. Couple games coming out later. I can make due w/out shifter or clutch but i need steering wheel for Need4Speed but it isn't supported. I dont have forza so I cant say much about it because i cant drive anything. May work on watchDogs or battlefield 4 cars, I dont know.
WORKS VERY GOOD!!
I wrote my review in the wrong section. This is a bear bones setup like the ads and gamestop said there is no forcefeed back no rumble and no chat hookup. For chat you need to use the standard controller. The controller and the wheel will work together with out a problem. This racing wheel works better than expected. The one I have looks and feels well constructed. Only one thing for some reason the wheel will turn my xbox on by its self. You have to unplug the usb cable after you turn off your xbox. If your on a tight budgit and you want a wheel then this is the one to get. When you think about it. It only costs $40 more than a standard controller and it works really! well! just as good as the exspensive wheels do.
It Sucked, Don't buy
It has no force feedback, which I don't mind, but that's not the problem. It doesn't weigh enough to stay put. This ruins it. I would maybe pay $15 because of this problem. The only good this about it is that it has a return policy.
Glad this is coming.
I started playing forza at the tail end of the 360s life before Xbox One released. I was more of a PGR fan on 360. I am really excited for this cheaper option for a racing wheel but my one question is that is it wireless to the console itself.
