Haptic Steering Wheels Could Save You From The Blinding Sun

Let’s say you’re flying down the road at high speed, listening to some tunes and having a grand old time. And then, Mr Sun just happens to peek out from behind a distant building/mountain/hill and punches you straight in the eyes. You’re blinded by the light. Whatchu gonna do?

Gran Turismo Wheel And Pedal Set Is Prettier Than The Game

After waiting so long for Gran Turismo 5, are you really going to use your dinky Dual Shock? A game with such great (insane?) attention to detail deserves an equally hardcore peripheral. Thrustmaster’s new T500 RS looks like a contender.


Thrustmaster's T500RS Is The Official Gran Turismo 5 Steering Wheel Controller

The perpetually delayed but now available Gran Turismo 5 probably doesn’t need anymore teases associated with its namesake, but nevertheless here we go again. Thrustmaster, you see, has the “official steering wheel” rights this time around, and recently tased this:
