Fanatec Porsche 911 Carrera Racing Wheel for PS3 and PC

by



There is just something about men and sports, how the former loves the latter to the death up to a point where even though the missus needs some help, pronto, around the home, he will just sit in his La-Z-Boy chair while enjoying the game. Motorsports also has a large following, since this adrenaline pumping spectator sport allows us to escape into a world where speed wins, and there are enough thrills and spills in each race to keep the excitement level up at all times. There are bound to be moments when we think that we’re good enough to enter the NASCAR or Formula 1 circuit, but sadly, reality bites. Well, good thing there is this thing called computer games, and technology has advanced to such a point where you’ll be able to get a pretty realistic look and feel of how car racing works in the comfort of your home, and with peripherals like Fanatec’s Porsche 911 Carrera Racing Wheel for PS3 and PC, you won’t come away with a bitter taste in your mouth where hardware is concerned.

Licensed by Porsche Lizenz- und Handelsgesellschaft mbH, the Fanatec Porsche 911 Carrera Racing Wheel features an interchangeable gear stick (6 + 1 Speed) that can be mounted on either side of the wheel, realistic clutch pedal with declining resistance, a powerful Mabuchi RS 550 force feedback motor, an adjustable turning angle (up to 900°), a tuning function that allows gamers to change force feedback during gameplay, and an extra large wheel rim of 300mm in diameter crafted from high-quality TPE rubber. Add in unique mechanics for each pedal and an authentic metal Porsche logo and it’s just like being on the road…gamers truly get the feeling they are playing with the real thing!

Fanatec is no stranger when it comes to gaming peripherals, and you can be sure that the Porsche 911 Carrera Racing Wheel for PS3 and PC is able to deliver an authentic car racing experience, but then again that is largely subjective since it depends more on the game than the hardware at this moment. Even if you can’t afford a real Porsche to park in your garage, surely asking for $129.95 for this steering wheel is not too much to ask? At the very least, you’ll be able to own something that has a Porsche badge on it, in a legit manner, too. This steering wheel will begin to ship just a day after Valentine’s next year, but you can place your pre-order today. Sorry girls, you can’t surprise your man with this next year – perhaps a belated present idea will do?
