Los Angeles, August 28, 2013 — Following its Xbox One third-party peripheral official partnership announcement, Thrustmaster is thrilled to announce its first Xbox One peripheral: the TX Racing Wheel, Ferrari 458 Italia Edition, launched for D-Day of “Forza Motorsport 5.”

 

With over 20 years of expertise in simulation gear, and a close development relationship with Microsoft, Thrustmaster is excited to announce a racing wheel to the Xbox One marketplace.

 

The challenge faced by both teams was to create a new generation of racing wheels never before seen on the Xbox platform. The TX Racing Wheel, Ferrari 458 Italia Edition will be a 7:10 scale replica of the emblematic Ferrari 458 Italia wheel, and will feature a rubber grip for maximum comfort. The wheel has been developed in collaboration with Microsoft and will be fully dedicated to the Xbox One, including all of the related distinct features: Binder ID, Xbox One guide button, View & App button.

 

Thanks to Thrustmaster’s unique experience and passion for racing, the wheel has been optimized to provide jaw-droppingly lifelike sensations in “Forza Motorsport 5” on Xbox One, by way of metal gas and brake pedals and wheel-mounted, die-cast paddle shifters.

 

 

Details and specifics for this cutting-edge racing wheel will be released in the coming weeks on the Thrustmaster website and the brand new Facebook page; The Thrustmaster X Team.
