Microsoft has announced the Xbox Wireless Speed Wheel for all the petrol heads out there who have tired of using regular controllers to navigate their way around tracks and streets. The new steering wheel, as you can see, sports a three-quarters design and includes most of the controls you’d get on a regular Xbox controller including four-way directional pad, action buttons and trigger buttons on the rear for accelerator and brake controls. While we’ll have to wait to see if the Speed Wheel will feel nice in the hand, the inclusion of a rumble pack for haptic feedback which will make sure you feel as if you are taking those high-speed corners yourself.
The Wireless Speed Wheel will cost $60 when it hits shops in October and will work with all racing games out of the box, but Microsoft add a caveat that there will be limited functionality with some games, which means you should probably look at the small print before thinking of investing. At the top of the Speed Wheel are green bands of lights on each handle to provide visual cues when necessary. The Wireless Speed Wheel will be shipping from 26 September and we are waiting to hear a UK price but will let you know as soon as we do.
