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.
The T500 RS is stuffed full of features that will make a driving sim nut squeal - force feedback driven by a 60W motor, a wheel capable of 1080 degrees of turning, and all-metal pedal construction. The whole set weighs over 11kg. Sounds pretty sturdy to us. And for $US600, it sure as hell better be. You'll be glad on those days you don't quite beat your best lap time - those of us who take our rage out on our controllers always appreciate a rugged build. [Thrustmaster]
