Sony’s gone into detail overload on the Thrustmaster T500 RS, the second steering wheel to be officially supported for Gran Turismo 5.

Polyphony boss Kazunori Yamauchi said he challenged the lot behind the peripheral to give an experience that suited users with Gran Turismo 5.

“The goal that I set for the Thrustmaster team was to design for me the most precise wheel ever developed, without any latency, to accurately reproduce the sensations of GT5, and let users truly feel the emotions experienced by drivers on real racing circuits.”

There’s a video of it from the EU PS Blog below.

The wheel launches today in Europe for £449.99/€499.99.

There’s a video here of Inside Sim Racing unboxing it from yesterday.
