Wireless Speed Wheel for the Xbox 360
by Mark R
Considering all the things that Microsoft has already announced at E3 with the Kinect, you would think that they were “through for the week”. However, images of this particular racing wheel have been appearing on tech, gadget, and gaming blogs everywhere.
Just to let you know, it is an official annoucement, but there is no word in the Press Release about it being motion-controlled. I don’t know if that was just left out, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t be. I’m going to be on the E3 convention floor later today, so hopefully, I will get a chance to see it in motion. I will leave a comment here if it is, and something tells me that motion-contol will be a go.
It would appear that Microsoft wants to bring about a better steering wheel than the plastic attachment for Mario Kart. You’ve got to admire how it has all the buttons of a regular Xbox 360 controller, so I am guessing it could be used with a racing game or any other game.
The Wireless Speed Wheel will be on sale later this year, and I am guessing it will occur at the same time as Forza 4. The price will be about $59.99, and I don’t think that it is going to be coupled with any particular game.
