London, September 3, 2015 — The T150 Force Feedback from Thrustmaster, like its Ferrari-licensed alter ego the T150 Ferrari Wheel Force Feedback, definitely delivers the goods when it comes to quality-price ratio and versatility. This versatility is reflected in the fact that not only do both wheels feature dual official licenses for both PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®3 and are also compatible with PC, they are also versatile enough to be used and appreciated by gamers of all levels – from beginners to experienced racers – and on all types of racing circuits.
The T150 Force Feedback and T150 Ferrari Wheel Force Feedback have been designed with total versatility in mind. This versatility starts with PlayStation®4-certified embedded software (allowing the wheels to be automatically recognized by the PS4™ console) and a built-in PS4™/PS3™ sliding switch, making it simple to instantly play on either of the two consoles for which the wheels are officially licensed. In addition, the wheels are also compatible with PC (Windows® 10/8/7/Vista/XP) thanks to the Thrustmaster drivers available for download from the http://ts.thrustmaster.com/ website: the drivers allow users to make sure that they always have the latest firmware version available for the racing wheels’ base and internal memory.
Another aspect of the wheels’ versatility is Force Feedback designed by Thrustmaster’s development teams to a high-performance standard for demanding racers, while remaining controllable for less experienced gamers as well. Both T150 editions are very aggressively priced at less than €200, and are the ideal wheels to accompany gamers through a progressive experience curve – during which time they can upgrade their setup by purchasing a T3PA or T3PA-PRO 3-pedal pedal set or the Thrustmaster TH8A shifter, both of which the T150 wheels are compatible with.
The wheels’ rim has also been fully designed with versatility in mind for easy handling – at 11”/28 cm in diameter – and mastery of any type of circuit, car or racing style! An emphasis has been placed on ergonomic design, with quick and easy access to the 13 action buttons, the D-Pad, the official PlayStation®4 buttons, and the 2 large, 100% metal wheel-mounted sequential paddle shifters (5”/13 cm tall). The wheels’ grip surfaces are clad in textured rubber for maximum comfort. The included 2-pedal pedal set features an adjustable angle of inclination for each pedal, as well as progressive resistance on the brake pedal.
All of the ingredients for true performance
This versatility comes alongside some very impressive technical specs: 1080° Force Feedback featuring Immersion TouchSense® technology, rotation angle adjustable from 270° to 1080°, optical position reading with 12-bit resolution (4096 values on the wheel’s steering axis), mixed belt-pulley and gears transmission system, and metal ball-bearing axle. The end result is high-performance wheels that are both solidly-built and precise.
• The T150 Force Feedback will be available in October, at a suggested retail price of £169.99 (taxes included). The T150 Ferrari Wheel Force Feedback version will be available at the same time and at the same price
