Today Thrustmaster unveils the T300RS GT Edition racing wheel, a device that takes full advantage of its official Gran Turismo license on PS4™ and PS3™. Available on the Thrustmaster website, the device is designed for optimized use with Gran Turismo titles, both past and upcoming.
Thrustmaster is bringing this new and world class racing wheel to the market ahead of the release of Playstation’s highly anticipated racing game Gran Turismo Sport. The T300RS GT Edition, an officially Gran Turismo licensed racing wheel, is built around perfectly harnessed technologies developed by Thrustmaster – including an industrial brushless motor offering full Force Feedback and 1080° degrees of rotation.
The dual-belt system allows for the T300RS GT Edition’s flexibility. In addition to the flexibility and silent maneuverability offered by the brushless motor, the racing wheel boasts incredible precision delivered by the H.E.A.R.T (HallEffect AccuRate Technology™*), which features contactless magnetic sensors delivering long-lasting 16-bit precision (i.e. 65,536 values). The T300RS GT Edition features internal memory and upgradable firmware, allowing users to keep up-to-date with the most recent upgrades and improvements.
The T300RS GT Edition features a metal 3-pedal set including clutch, brake and accelerator. Designed to offer even greater immersion and realism, the pedal set ensures exceptional stability, meaning even the heaviest foot movements during the most intense racing maneuvers will not dislodge these pedals. The set also features adjustable, long-travel metal pedals where the height and spacing position of the accelerator and clutch pedals can be adjusted. To simulate racing authenticity, the brake pedal offers progressive resistance. Brand new pedal heads were created specifically for this controller, featuring a unique design, exclusive to this special edition.
The T300RS GT Edition will allow racers to hone their skills with a brand new racing wheel, officially licensed by the world class Gran Turismo franchise, before the release of the highly anticipated newest entry in the series Gran Turismo Sport. In addition to the T300RS GT Edition, a new very high-end racing wheel positioned above the T500RS, designed for competitive eSports in close collaboration with the game’s creator, Mr. Kazunori Yamauchi, will be available at Gran Turismo Sport’s launch.
