Los Angeles, June 10, 2014 — Thrustmaster is proud to announce its brand-new Next-Gen racing simulator, officially licensed for PlayStation®4 (PS4) and PlayStation®3 (PS3): put the pedal to the metal this back-to-school season!
The very latest technologies available
Thrustmaster accompanies virtual racers through their learning curve in terms of experience with the T300 RS, as this simulator lets gamers really take the plunge into the world of racing, and hone their driving skills for better performance. To achieve this, under the hood there’s nothing less than a genuine brushless industrial Force Feedback motor (with frictionless action), combined with a new 1080° dual-belt system to deliver super-smooth and quiet Force Feedback with incredibly responsive, realistic Force effects. Thrustmaster’s development teams have added precision to the motor’s impressive capabilities by incorporating H.E.A.R.T HallEffect AccuRate Technology®, featuring a contactless magnetic sensor: this provides 16-bit resolution, for 65,536 values on the wheel’s steering. The T300 RS also features an internal memory, upgradable firmware so that users will always have access to the latest improvements via the wheel’s PC compatibility, and a PS4/PS3 sliding switch on its base for optimal compatibility with both systems.
Detachable wheel, adjustable pedal set and modular product ecosystem
The T300 RS includes a detachable wheel, featuring the Thrustmaster Quick Release system: the wheel measures 28 cm / 11 inches in diameter, with brushed metal central spokes. Its official PS4 buttons (PS, SHARE, OPTIONS) let users access the system’s new social functions at any time. The T300 RS weighs in at approximately 1.2 kg / 2.6 lbs, for ultra-realistic inertia and Force Feedback. The wheel’s entire circumference features reinforced textured rubber cladding, for the ultimate in comfort. 2 large sequential paddle shifters are attached to the wheel: they’re 13 cm / 5 inches in height for easy access, and 100% metal. The wheel’s angle of rotation can be adjusted from 270° to 1080°, depending on the type of vehicle being driven in the game! What’s more, the wheel is interchangable with other Thrustmaster wheels (the Ferrari F1 Wheel Add-on*, Ferrari GTE Wheel Add-on* and T500 RS* GT Wheel). The T300 RS’s pedal set features metal pedals with a long range of travel, which are fully adjustable in both height and spacing – with 6 different possible positions per pedal. The brake pedal even features progressive resistance.
The T300 RS is also compatible with the Base Fixed Paddle Shifters kit* (allowing users to install stationary paddle shifters on the wheel’s base), Thrustmaster’s 3-pedal pedal sets (T3PA* and T500 RS*), and the TH8A* and TH8RS* shifters.
• The T300 RS will be available from August 15, 2014, at a suggested retail price of €369.99 (taxes included).
