SteelSeries, the leading manufacturer of premium-quality, competitive gaming peripherals announced last November they were designing a handheld hybrid racing controller that combines the features and function of a high-end wheel with the portability and convenience of a joypad.
The wheel will not only be able to be used in the online racing world of Simraceway, but also with a list of other games including the following, but remember some features, including the assists dials and the shift indicator LEDs may not be compatible with certain titles:
- F1 2011
- Live for Speed
- DiRT 2
- GTR 2
- Test Drive Unlimited
- Need for Speed Shift
- Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit
- Need For Speed Underground
- Midnight Club 3 Dub Edition
The wheel looks fantastic as you can see from the images and video and we can’t wait to get our hands on one.
