SteelSeries Simraceway Steering Wheel released in the UK end of January

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:

  • iRacing
  • F1 2011
  • Simraceway
  • GTR
  • Live for Speed
  • DiRT
  • 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
  • Blur

The wheel looks fantastic as you can see from the images and video and we can’t wait to get our hands on one.

If you aren’t familiar with Simraceway, it’s an online racing world that offers live, person-to-person racing, utilising highly-accurate, simulation-grade driving physics and proprietary middleware for player skill quantification in order to match racers by skill level. It leverages a client-server model similar to those on popular online games such as World of Warcraft and features current and historic licensed content from a variety of auto and racing brands including Bentley, Bugatti, Mitsubishi and Saleen. Its continually-evolving racing environment will be constantly supplemented with new features and content to fully reflect the fast-moving, real-world motor racing scene.
