Xbox 360 Wireless Speed Wheel: Perfect For Speed Freaks

Xbox 360 Wireless Speed Wheel: Perfect For Speed Freaks

Hope you're settled in for a long week of gaming news, because that's going to be dominating the airwaves with E3 ongoing in California. Microsoft, along with Sony and Nintendo, are certainly throwing news out left and right, and one thing that caught our eye in particular was this: a new Xbox 360 Wireless Speed Wheel. It's a very interesting take on a very old peripheral: the tried and true gaming wheel. Racers have been looking high and low for great accessories to give them that true-to-life feeling, and while we suspect this one won't be like sitting in the seat of a Ferrari, it's certainly a slick take.


It's 3/4 of a wheel, with the top open and the typical Xbox controls along the top edges of each side. There's a rumble motor inside for vibration feedback (smashing into walls much?), and a duo of triggers beneath each handle. Reportedly, the wheel will go on sale this October for $60, just in time to make your holiday wish list.

Very sleek design and if it picks up turning motions for gameplay it could be a real hit among racer fans.

If its not to heavy it looks alright better thin the 360 wheel

I'm guessing they took a page from those F1 racers.

In any case it is sleek but hey, what was wrong with the wheel in the first place?

I would doubt it is much heavier than the Wii wheel with Wii remote inserted into it. Personally I have never had fatigue from racing Mario carts with that wheel. Looks pretty sleek though since I don't have an Xbox it won't be on my wish list.

Will it work horizontally? Like could you set it on the table and use it if your arms get tired? That would make it more worthwhile to me.

Dorky!!!

Yeah let your girlfriend come home and catch you toggeling a smiley green thighmaster between your legs!

I have owned or tried almost every wheel and yoke out there, looking at this all I can think of is how tired your arms will get holding it up for more than an hour! For wheels, you have to have a sturdy mount and FF is always a fun option.
