Gamer: Thrustmaster Releases Ferrari Wireless Cockpit For PC And PS3

Lifestyle, News I By John Beltz Snyder I May 27, 2010

Thrustmaster has released the newest helm for diving sim fans, the Ferrari Wireless GT Cockpit 430 Scuderia Edition for the PC and PlayStation 3. Rather than having multiple pieces, the wheel and pedals are all part of one single adjustable unit.

For $250, the 23-pound wireless cockpit, licensed by Ferrari, sports a metal structure for optimum stability. The standalone unit requires no clamping, or, what we usually end up doing, resting the wheel clumsily on our lap. When not in use, the programmable wheel detaches, and the unit folds for easy storage.

We haven’t had the chance to try it out, but the idea of a standalone unit is a great one. Especially for console gamers, it’s difficult to find a surface the proper height and with to mount the steering wheel while still being able to place the pedals in a comfortable position. This setup from Thrustmaster could eliminate this problem altogether, with its adjustability.

Now, if only Gran Turismo 5 would hurry up and make its debut.
