Mad Catz making Force Feedback Wheel exclusively for Xbox One

Thursday, 22nd August 2013 16:58 GMT By Dave Owen

It’s another Xbox One exclusive, but this time it’s not a game. Leading peripheral maker Mad Catz has announced that it’ll producing the Force Feedback Wheel only for Microsoft’s next-gen console. Good news for Forza fans.

The wheel includes two force feedback motors, and its anodized aluminium wheel face is removeable from the base, which will give users the option to upgrade the peripheral at a later date. It’ll be fully equipped with adjustable pedals, allowing you to customise height, resistance, and spacing for both the brake and accelerator.

“We have previously commented on how the enhanced performance of Xbox One opens up additional scope for innovation and believe that the precision engineering and customization of the Force Feedback Racing Wheel will appeal to the passionate racing gamer,” said Darren Richardson, president and CEO of Mad Catz, in a press release that announced the wheel.

The company has worked with Forza 5 developer Turn 10 Studios in designing the wheel, which is handy, because Forza 5 launches with Xbox One this November. Racers will also be able to get their hands on Need for Speed Rivals at launch, although we don’t know yet if that will support the wheel.

There’s no price just yet, but it should be out at around the same time as Xbox One.

Thanks, Polygon.

    Take my money. That looks ace, but it seriously had better be available on launch date.

    Can you use the old MS Force feedback 360 wheel with Xbone?

    Also, how much is this one going to cost?

    One of those things I probably can’t afford to buy, but will want from afar forever.

    Lol, Mad Catz is one of the worst third party accessory companies out there, and their making a racing wheel for the X1, this should be good.

    No mention of a clutch. Forza games have always supported a clutch and the hard core players won’t touch it if it doesn’t have one. Does anyone know if this is the case?
