  • So, Fanatec confirms they are kinda in the hurt financially right now(EU market atleast)? I guess that means it's time to open up pre-orders for a new product, and start taking people's money immediately for something that will eventually be released months away..

    Thomas, are you guys ok over there? Have you dug a hole and are now constantly trying to play catchup by robbing Peter to pay Paul? What gives? Fanatec is the only company I know that has these business practices.

    I'm tired of paying months in advance, wake me up when we get there.


    I was just gonna ask if we will be charged up front for the preorder or when it actually ships?
    As allways...pay upfront or the product ain't gonna be shipped around the 28/05/2015
  • little more expensive then expected.... what ever happened to multiple wheel options for different budgets? what gives???
    Maybe like next year looking at announcements and actual availability in the past...LOL
  • http://www.fanatec.com/us-en/steering-wheels/clubsport-steering-wheel-gt-xbox-one-usa.html

    Is the date here accurate? All the others are 5/31, this one (that I already pre-ordered) says 8/31. I'm hoping it is a typo? :)
  • Even though a Universal Hub is Not What i Want I think Thomas/Fanatec Made the Right Choice by Releasing a Universal Hub First!!! it Has apeal to More People PC, XB1, PS3 & PS4!!!

    I Believe that Thomas/Fanatec will Offer a Line of More Expensive Stand alone wheel Rims Similar to the Porsche & F1 for those that want to Buy them and also Offer less Expensive options for those that want to Save some $$$.

    This is the First XB1 or Multi Platform Rim/Hub for this Console Generation. Lets All Be Happy That Progress has been Made... I Myself am Not Thrilled about a Universal Wheel Hub but i am Happy it is Here and i am Looking forward because i Believe better things will come. I would have prefered a Stand alone wheel because i own the Porsche & F1 Rim already and i dont want to Have to take a Hub apart every time i want to Change GT to F1... thats just my preference...

    And This News is Better than Most Hoped For...That the Hub will wirk on XB1,PC, PS4 & PS3!!! I was Hoping for XB360 also but i/We Cant have everything so i will just be Happy that orogress Has Been Made and wait Patiently for the Stand alone Rims to be Released.
  • Im think im going to wait to order this Hub/Rim because i want to Read the Reviews about PCars FFB on PC, PS4 vs XB1 with M$ saying that tbey have a New FFB System if thats True then the FFB should Feel Better with PCars on XB1 than it Does on PCars for PS4...If Both Feels the Same then whats the point of the New M$ FFB??? Besides making every 1 order New stuff and Spend More $$$...jmt
  • My tipp: buy for the money a PS4 and use the fanatec stuff you already have !

    Most of the games you can play on all platforms, except "The Crew", but this is typically not the game for gamers with Fanatec equipement.
  • LOL!!! The Day it was announced that PS4 will work with the V2 as is i went and bought a PS4!!!

    it still does suck my porshe rim will work on ps4 (currently using it on pc obviously) but not on xbox. I mean yay for $400 rim that can't be used in forza.  it is what it is unfortunately.  
  • Any idea if the PS4 Wheels will support drive club?
  • Any more info on the additional 5 button box?

    As stated in details

    ◾ An additional 5th button box unit can be attached (not included)

    Cant seem to find it in the store.

  • Bit gutted there isn't a F1 rim. but like this universal hub. Knew it wasn't going to be cheap because of previous post about price increases. but if it proves to be solid and they eventually release a F1 rim then ill be happy. pre ordered with the gt rim which should do most cars apart from F1 . shame theres no rev lights

    not gonna get rev lights on a console. 
  • it will be more than just pcars. no way gt7 won't get the support
    Plenty of games before that that we don't know about F1 2015? will driveclub or the crew be patched for support.  it requires the developer to add the driver to the game. 

    Sony never officially supported Fanatec last gen, and since they need to have the driver in the game, we don't know at this point. GT7 hasn't even been announced yet, estimates are a 2017 release. 

    @thomas does this X1 compatibility work for all X1 games(the Crew), or just Forza, Project cars?


    anything else other than gt7, should be played on pc...so nothing else matters but gt7 in this case
    Good luck playing driveclub on PC. Even if it wasn't a great game, they are going to improve for DC2. Plenty of people on here are only on console, other games F1 2015, isn't going to be a big difference on PC vs PS4, unlike SMS other devs are releasing games that don't have tons of PC optimizations and improvements over console. 

    If PC is all you are going to play there are way better options than Fanatec. Buy a direct drive wheel and hydraulic pedals.  

    I have made plenty of arguments for PC over console on here, but maximizing console compatibility absolutely matters.  
  • Will there be an F1 Wheel Rim for the XboxOne in the future and if yes, roughly how long??

    I just received my Invite Code and now I have to put off buying the new ClubSport Base V2 because the F1 Rim isn't available for XboxOne :(

    Whatever timeframe they tell you add six months.

    So just to be sure there is no formula one rim? The flat 1 or GT rim is the best option?




    » show previous quotes

    He did, but he also mentioned "more wheel bases" which will mean more rims for those bases too.



    For now yes...
    But he mentions another rim coming later in the year, lower price, aimed at a bigger audience. I think it'll be something akin to the CSR-E F1 "RIM" with XBO compatibility...

    A cheaper plastic F1 style rim (like the 99€ CSR-E Version) In fact... Im so sure of it, I'm not ordering this as it's not right for me.

    £350 (+ delivery) for 1 rim for Xbox is not right for me at all when PS4 is "free" for me. This 1 non quick release, single rim, screw attached xbo supported wheel would cost me MORE than a PS4 or an XBO with games and change :-0 ... I can't justify that when all the games I need will be on PS4 and comparable with the quick release porche rim and F1 carbon (hot swap in game)

    Considering the rim is technically not even quick release either, as I will need to sit with a screw driver and unscrew 5 hex screws from the rim, remove it and then re screw in 5 more to the alternate rim if I want to change cars.

    I like the current quick release system and I think that suits my needs far more than this.

    Great idea and concept... But not for me I don't think...

    Plus what's with the strange ambiguity re: the pricing? Why is it €50 more expensive to buy it in a bundle? Bundles are supposed to be cheaper AND they don't match the price posted by Thomas?

    I see on the sim forums there are a few bitter views from current universal hub Owners... Early adoption is a bummer sometimes


    He didn't hint at a rim, it's a whole new cheaper base.




    Yes you are correct, he did mention a new base as you say..
    But that's not the point were talking about, he also mentioned "several more bases" too and at varying price points.
    Which will mean more rims for those bases... And as they have a standardised QR system... And no one buying a €249 base (as an example of price) will buy a €499 rim he will need to create cheaper rims for these cheaper bases.

    "There are several more wheel bases at various price points planned to be released and there will also be another steering wheel for Xbox One to be announced later this year which will be targeted to a broader audience at a much lower price point"



    I have no doubt he'll make a cheap plastic rim and a CSW style mould base that is made of plastic and most likely a more expensive Direct Drive base as well. The people that bought a V2 are not the type to want a cheap plastic rim to mount on it so what he did with releasing a Universal Hub is exactly what was expected. Down the road he can make a rim for the unwashed.




    Yea I agree. I think a cheaper plastic style CSW will make an appearance, however as a current V2 owner myself (and F1 Carbon and Porshe Rim user) I can say that as one of those users, I would welcome a cheap xbox wheel ;)

    I can absolute see why the hub has been used, it's great for compatibility and a fast release. I'm going to hang on until they incorporate the electronics into a complete wheel. A little cheap Xbox rim would suit me to play Forza, while I use my Porsche and F1 Carbon rims on PCars, Dirt 4, F1 2015, GT7 etc etc etc ;)

    Here's hoping we dont have to wait too long :)

    Special Note
    ClubSport Wheel Base with firmware 076 (or higher) needed for operation.

    Highest version available now is 065.

    Is the firmware specific for XB1 or are there also other enhancements?

    Ordered my ClubSport steering wheel GT Xbox One EU.
    When it arrives i'm will be selling my ClubSport steering wheel GT EU.
    One wheel to play on PC, PS3, PS4 en XB1.
  • This is awesome. Just placed my order. Thank you very much

  • woah, just seen the date for the GT rim bundle and its 31-08-2015. my order still says 28-05-2015

    Fanatec CSW Universal Hub Review:

    --
    Sent from Fast notepad
  • Europe store Landon
  • since this is not going to be out until a few weeks after Pcars, i am debating buying a F1 or bmw rim and playing pcars on PC first. 
  • Hi Thomas
    It is possible to send back the Universal hub and you make the upgrade for Xbox one.With my surcharge?
  • I just bought the new Xbox One GT Wheel package but was a little disappointed that expected shipping date is not till Aug 30th. I have had the v2 base since last fall and it's still in the box waiting for this rim and now with a 5 month wait from today's wait 1about a year of warranty is gone before I even get to try it. And that is if it ships when it's supposed to. Will they work with me on the warranty issue if I have problems? Until I get the wheel there is no way to tell. I guess I could turn it on but how would you tell if the force feedback is working properly without a wheel on the base?. I hope this is not going to go on a direction that is unpleasant for me. I feel like I am really sticking my neck out a long ways here. If there are issues I could really get hosed on the warranty.

    see if they will ship you the hub and just buy a real car wheel separatly.

    why are earth do you have a v2 sitting in a box and not playing it on pc?
  • One Rim to rule them all,
    One Rim to find them,
    One Rim to bring them all
    and in the darkness bind them.

    :)
  • A little disappointed....  But I may still order it...  To be clear it is XBOX ONE, PC, PS3 and PS4 Compatible , correct?




    Correct :)



    I have 2 of the Uni-Hubs and while they might be a pain in the butt to assemble they are quite nice.

    However a big problem is Fanatec has not tried to keep button mappings relatively similar between the different offerings and you change your rim you need to remap your buttons every time.  I am aware that the BMW and Formula Rim have different button configurations but they could have gotten the button mappings 80% similar securing the mappings of the more important functions. These guys are suppose to be rocket scientists but fall way short with the small details.

    As for the difference between the Uni-Hub and the Xbox Hub an added chip I could assume that costs way less than 50 bucks. I think they could have easily priced them the same since they can expect reduced sales in Europe with the price increases. There has to be some kind of balance so the overall package deals are not grossly increased in price because of the currency manipulation from Zentralbank

    I am sure they could straiten things out if they could eliminate 80% of the RMA's killing their profits. Fanatec needs to kick China to the curb and go to Korea to get things built for them.

    save money from buying 2 rims
  • Sorry for all the multiple posts. Not real good at navigating on this and it shows, again sorry
  • Landon I have no PC exept and old one for my wifi at home. Just have an Xbox One to play with
  • Thanks Josha Craig for the idea
  • I don't understand this...  The shipping date for the Universal hub for Xbox One is 5/28 the GT Rim shows in stock....  But you order the combo the shipping date is 8/31st?   What am I missing here?
  • Landon I have no PC exept and old one for my wifi at home. Just have an Xbox One to play with
    but yet you can spend assload of money on fanatec gear to play on a console? lo

    get a pc if you got that type of money for this high end stuff. this aint some madcatz stuff 
  • I don't understand this...  The shipping date for the Universal hub for Xbox One is 5/28 the GT Rim shows in stock....  But you order the combo the shipping date is 8/31st?   What am I missing here?



    Maybe the fact by the time the hub is ready they will have expected sales of the GT rim to be sold out separately to people. So having to wait for more stock for the bundled kit???

    Other than that ..I have no idea. What happens if you order separately rather than the bundle. Is the delivery for the rim still 8/31st?


  • That is my question...   :)


  • not gonna get rev lights on a console. 


    The Rev Lights work just fine in GT6.

  • My tipp: buy for the money a PS4 and use the fanatec stuff you already have !

    Most of the games you can play on all platforms, except "The Crew", but this is typically not the game for gamers with Fanatec equipement.
    ps4 has junk driving titles like driveclub and XO has Forza so my advice is race on PC/XO for the best experience. The Crew is on all platforms btw

    I cant wait that Long!!! i Bought a Porsche and a F1 Rim and ive been Playing on PS3 since Dec 26th... and Rather than to wait for the XB1 Rim I Bought a PS4 and will be playing PCars and F1 on it until probably around Sept when the Adapter Should be Easily Available... or they Bring out their Next Line up of Hopefully Stand Alone Wheel Rims...The Holiday season will be almost upon us so i Know that they will be launching a New Line up... There Will Be $$$ to be Made!!!! and i will be here waiting to Spend!!!

    PS...Even with all the Complaining the Hub is Selling Out Quickly!!! and its probably the people that complained the most that were the First to Order!!! LOL... Rejoyce and be happy People the XB1 wheel is Here and i Bet that there are even more Goodies on the way!!!

    save money from buying 2 rims
    You're not saving if you burn off your warranty with no play. I simply bought a Formula Rim for mine for $142.50 brand new from Fanatec on eBay. I had a feeling the XO rim would be a universal hub that would work on PC as well so I waited for that and just raced on PC with the Formula instead. The V2 base is so awesome I even won a NASCAR race in iRacing on the oval using the Formula rim!
  • To be clear it is XBOX ONE, PC, PS3 and PS4 Compatible , correct?

    Alfonso, my apologies. I missinformed you about the PS4 compatibility. It is in fact compatible. Cheers!
  • Ok, so I'm still a little confused...

    I own the CSR wheel (not the elite, The forza one), clubsport pedals, and the standard sequential shift and H-pattern. 

    This hub will attach to my csr base and work with the xbox one?

    No. This hub is for the Fanatec bases that have a quick release system, the CSW and CSW V2 and whatever future bases that also have QR will work with this on XO.
  • Hey guys I have a question regarding this hub. Will it have mic support for xbox one headsets??
