Mad Catz has just announced yet another gaming peripheral for the masses, where this one will take the wireless route just like many other devices these days. Known as the Mad Catz Wireless Force Feedback Wheel, it will be available for the Xbox 360 console, being compatible with just about all racing titles on that particular platform. Of course, you can’t quite get it in the market just yet since it is being prepared to ship for the coming holiday season, giving you at least five more months or so to save up for one of these puppies.
Darren Richardson, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. says, “Our new licensed Wireless Force Feedback Wheel is a further example of our ability to introduce high quality gaming controllers which offer great appeal to core gamers. Games like Forza Motorsport 4 offer highly realistic driving simulation and we believe that our fully licensed Wireless Force Feedback Wheel will appeal to gamers wishing to replicate an authentic racing experience. Our new licensed Wireless Force Feedback Wheel is a further example of our ability to introduce high quality gaming controllers which offer great appeal to core gamers.”
You will be able to take full advantage of both powerful Force Feedback and Dual Vibration Feedback motors that can be used in tandem with each other, where the wheel will be accompanied by twin accelerator and brake racing pedals, while a ‘tiptronic’ style gear shift paddles will work alongside a unique interchangeable, re-designed gear shift. This means that even southpaws will be able to play in comfort. [Press Release]
