Sony unveils new PS3 peripheral, the Move Racing Wheel
At E3, Sony premiered an all-new peripheral called the PlayStation Move Racing Wheel.
The peripheral "transforms your PlayStation Move motion controller into the ultimate racing experience, supporting any vehicle you choose to drive" — which seems to mean that users must already own a Move controller to take advantage of the device. In other words, anyone who doesn't have one needs to shell out money for a Move and a PlayStation Eye and now the Racing Wheel. It's uncertain whether Sony will package in a free controller.
Sony has listed some highlights for the peripheral:
- Precise motion tracking for responsive handling of your vehicle
- An innovative folding grip design will allow you to switch between racing a sports bike to a high-octane supercar
- Feel the intense vibration feedback of your vehicle as you trade paint with the competition
- Experience realistic gameplay action using the race car paddle shifters and motorcycle twist throttle controls
The PlayStation Move Racing Wheel will go on sale this fall for $39.99. It will support upcoming games such as Little Big Planet Karting as well as past titles like Gran Turismo 5, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, and BurnOut Paradise.
