Following on from the recently released Y-300 CPX headset, gaming accessory manufacturer Thrustmaster have revealed the new and awesome looking TMX Force Feedback racing wheel. This new wheel is officially licensed and designed for Xbox One and Windows for cross-platform fun.
This stonking new hardware is equipped with a high-performance force feedback motor which offers adjustable intensity and a rotation angle form 270 to 900 degrees. Thrustmaster’s TMX Force Feedback wheel is promising to deliver a realistic and versatile racing experience. Thrustmaster want the controller’s versatility to benefit all players, whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned pilot with all types of tracks, cars and races.
The mixed belt-pulley and gears of the force feedback motor offers the gamer a balanced combination or performance, robustness and precision. Steering won’t suffer either. The steering axis has 12-bit resolution. This means 4086 values on the wheel’s steering sensitivity. This will be delivered by an optical sensor, giving extreme precision and a highly realistic racing sensation.
The controller will be attachable to pretty much all mount types. Desks, tables, your own custom-built cockpit in your petrol-head man-cave, the TMX should offer a sturdy connection to them all.
The certification for Xbox One is important. This means that the controller is automatically recognised by the console. Subsequently, this means that it will be compatible with the menu systems in all racing games supporting racing wheels.
Got a Windows 10 machine? No problem whatsoever. The TMX is also Windows 10, 8, 7 and Vista compatible so you won’t be confined to just playing with it on the Xbox.
The wheel will cost somewhere in the region of $199.99 or your local currency equivalent, but for that you’re not just getting the 13cm, all metal wheel. Oh, no. You’ll also be getting a wide two-pedal set that delivers efficient acceleration and braking. Each pedal’s incline can be adjusted, for greater comfort and realism. The brake pedal will also offer progressive resistance.
Thrustmaster have announced that the TMX Force Feedback will be available in May this year.
