Thrustmaster: TX Racing Wheel, Ferrari 458 Italia Edition
The best racing wheel
The update was not fun to do but once I got the update loaded on the wheel it worked just like it's supposed to I have been using it everyday 2-4 hours a day and no problems. I'm glad I bought one it's the best accessory for the XBOX ONE so fun to use.
Received, Installed, Played secs, burnt out quit
The wheel was installed and updated. Played for about 1/4 lap in Forza on an Xbox One. The wheel died and hasn't worked since.
Not usual Thrustmaster quality for a product.
Will wait to see how quickly Gamestop reacts and replaces the Wheel.
The price is a reflection of quality
For those complaining about the price, there is reasoning behind it. The wheel itself is built with quality motors, is modular, and also can be used with a PC. Thrustmaster plans on releasing more wheels, petals with clutch, and gated shifter in the future. (see here https://www.facebook.com/ThrustmasterXTeam). For comparison, if you think this is high priced merch, check out Fanatec wheel systems. Sim racing isn't a cheap hobby but I'm glad they're hitting the ground running with a quality wheel for Forza.
of course it's expensive ...
it's a racing simulation wheel. it is also very well built. just because its price point falls outside of the typical gamer demographic's affordability, does not mean it isn't worth the money. perhaps to you, it is not worth the price. however, to me, it is. will they sell very many as a result? not likely. i cannot imagine thrustmaster didn't do their market research when deciding on materials, labor, scalability, and subsequent price point. therefore, i would venture that thrustmaster knows they will not sell as many, "tx racing wheels" as they would if they made a less expensive product. in other words, your response is somewhat expected, but also obnoxious when it ventures to the territory of, "it's too expensive so it sucks!" please, kids, think a little bit before you post.
Way too expensive
I can get a PS4 for that price...! It doesnt even have leather wrap just some rubber garbage........ugh!
Why so expensive?
Looks cool but way over priced for a piece of plastic and some wires. Maybe if it was a real Ferrari steering wheel I would pay that.
Looks cool, but the wheel just seems...
I see that the wheel is pretty cool but the price is just too much. If it was like half the price I could maybe do that.
Too much money
dont need this stuff anyways just use the controller you dont need this wheel that will be igsignifcant in a year
