Thrustmaster has announced their first officially licensed Xbox One product, the Thrustmaster TMX Force Feedback Xbox One racing wheel. The racing wheel, also compatible with Windows machines (and not just Windows 10), is also affordably priced with an MSRP of $199.99USD.
Equipped with a high-performance force feedback motor offering adjustable intensity and a rotation angle ranging from 270° to 900°, the TMX Force Feedback delivers a realistic and versatile racing experience. The controller’s versatility benefits all players, whether beginners or seasoned pilots, with all types of tracks, cars and races.
Another example of this racing wheel’s versatility is its force feedback motor, designed by Thrustmaster’s development teams to offer performance suited to demanding players, while also remaining accessible to less experienced drivers. The motor features a mixed belt-pulley and gears system with metal ball-bearing axle. The result is a balanced combination of performance, robustness and precision. With 12-bit resolution – i.e. 4096 values on the wheel’s steering axis – provided by an optical sensor, this racing wheel also offers extreme precision, delivering highly realistic racing sensations.
Pedals are also included, and gamers will be able to change the inclination angle of each pedal, and the brake pedal features progressive resistance for added realism. The wheel has an 11″ (28cm) diameter, rubber-coated wheel grips to offer perfect comfort, and has been designed to ensure that the two large, 5”/13 cm tall, 100% metal wheel-mounted sequential paddle shifters are within easy reach, along with the 12 action buttons and the directional pad.
The Thrustmaster TMX Force Feedback is also compatible with the T3PA and T3PA-Pro (Thrustmaster 3 Pedals Add-on) pedal sets and with the Thrustmaster TH8A shifter should you want to upgrade it. As mentioned previously, the racing wheel has a suggested retail price of $199.99USD and will be available in May.
