When the road gives you curves, traffic, pileups, raging drivers, and dead-heats, Thrustmaster gives you an exacting solution: the Ferrari GT Experience Racing Wheel. Officially licensed by Ferrari and as a controller for virtual racing games on your PC and PS3, the Racing Wheel showcases numerous features to give you the competitive edge. Beyond the steering wheel, there are two pedals, two gearshift levers, a D-Pad, 10 buttons, and a home button for your Playstation 3.
Many of these controls are adjustable or reprogrammable in some way. You can reprogram the functions for the two levers, the D-Pad, the home button, and 10 action buttons between each other. You can also move the functions of all these controls onto the pedals. With the wheel, you can adjust its responsiveness between two modes, "normal sensitivity" and "high sensitivity." As an aid, the steering wheel also features an LED light that will blink, turn green, turn red, remain on, or remain off to communicate various programming-related messages to you. For instance, if you've switched to "high sensitivity" mode on your wheel, the LED will flash slowly.
For connecting the unit, insert the built-in USB cable into a USB port on your PS3 or PC. You can start immediately once you connect any of these. Although to note, if you're playing on your PC, you might first want to install the "Vibration Feedback" drivers via CD-ROM. That way, you'll have the added benefit of feeling the rumble of the road during game play. Whether you're playing through your PC or PS3, the Thrustmaster Ferrari GT Experience Racing Wheel is a racing controller sure to immerse you in the game and keep in you the thick of the race.
