  • For those of us who own both PS4 and Xbox One, if you put an Xbox One universal hub on the PS4 compatible DD1, can you use It on Xbox too?
    Would like to know that too. Can one put an Elite Wheel P1 for example on the PS4 version of the DD1 and have both Xbox and PS4 compatibility then?
    I guess this will work the same way it does on the CSL Elite PS4. PS4 compatibility through the base and the Xbox One compatibility through the rim. So yes, with the right rim you you should be able to use both consoles.

    Yup, that's my guess as well, seems logical. Would like some confirmation from Fanatec though.

    Thanks found it. I did a search on one page only which is why I missed it. Awesome!

    I have the V2, its awesome,and they were reasonably priced, but for me to upgrade to your ridiculous priced DD is insane.I know you need to charge more as its DD, but come on, $2500.00 Aus, for the DD2, its the most ridiculous price I've ever seen, do you guys actually want to sell a lot of them or only a handful, because with those prices, you wont sell what you think you will, sim racers out there are not as stupid as you think, and I know of at least 10 sim racers who were all waiting for the podium pricing to come out, and out of those 10, none now will even go near them, so that's just 10 I know, you times that by a few 100 people that know 10 that wont buy, all of a sudden , its getting into the 1000 mark of potential sales that went down the drain due to greed , I will wait until you guys come back down to planet earth with reasonable pricing, not this Ludacris pricing you have now.

    I wonder if Fanatec will respond to my post, and explain in detail why they are charging so much for the DD2 , as the pricing on the DD1 isn't out yet, i cant say if that's ridiculous, but I gather the DD1 pricing will be just as ridiculous as the DD2.

    Valid customer, but not stupid.

    If you do not like the price then don't buy it, if you don't like an auction then don't participate, it's that simple. People on here are always just bitching and moaning and threatening to buy other products. You aren't entitled to anything so please just either buy the product or do not buy the product it is afterall up to you and your budget. The price came in a little lower than I expected actually so I am pleased with that however it is still a bit out of my budget range too but maybe later this year I can try to get the DD2. Point is I really can't afford one just yet either but you can't take it out on the manufacturer because it's out of your price range. I mean I'd love a Ferrari but I can't complain to them that they're too expensive for me now can I?

    How can you even start to think that there pricing is just and fair, for them to make a good profit, they don't need to charge that much.Its ridiculous what there going to charge for the DD2,greed can be the downfall of any company.
    I have the V2, its awesome, and I consider the pricing on the V2 and V2.5 are reasonable and fair ,but for me to upgrade to the ridiculous prices for DD's is insane. I know they need to charge more as its DD, but come on, $2500.00 Aus for the DD2, its the most ridiculous price I've ever seen for a DD, do the guys at Fanatec corporate actually want to sell a lot of them or only a handful, because with those prices, they wont sell what they think they will ,perhaps to gullible people like yourself, but  sim racers out there are not as stupid as you think, and I know of at least 10 sim racers who were all waiting for the podium pricing to come out, and out of those 10, none now will even go near them, so that's just 10 I know, you times that by a few 100 people that know 10 that wont buy, all of a sudden , its getting into the 1000 mark of potential sales that went down the drain due to greed,I will wait until Fanatec come back down to planet earth with reasonable pricing, not the Ludacris prices they have now.

    In my opinion it's quite o.k., compared to the market. It's a little bit more expensive than the two other well known DD wheels out there and I hoped it would be a little bit cheaper, too. But you have to keep in mind, that you get a complete all in one plug and play pakage with a quick release system, a powerful software and a specially for sim racing engineered overall system. And it's Fanatecs first DD wheel. So you also have to pay a little bit for the research and development of it. I know, nobody wants to hear that, but that's the business. Maybe, just maybe, the second version is gonna be a little bit cheaper.
    So yes, it's maybe a little bit more expensive than most of us thought or hoped. But for me that's o.k. (even if that's the limit for me), presumed the quality is there and the wheel respectively Fanatec hold its promises.
    And btw., without saying a name, there is a DD wheel out there that's round about 2.5 times as expensive as the DD2 ;-)

    Maybe you should wait until the DD1 is on the "free market" and have a look back then.

    A fair point and view. I don't agree with you but  a fair comment non the less......

    I think the price is exactly where it needs to be... For now. Having a DD base that requires no additional parts/accessories and "just works" with my entire sim racing eco system is definitely worth a few extra €s for me (personally).

    For example, if I was to buy an alternative DD base, I would be required to either manufacture / buy a new set of QRs, Rims, etc. And I would lose support for my consoles, and possibly some of my games library.
    So to have a DD base that will allow me to use all my existing rims seamlessly, all my existing hardware, and be fully compatible with my entire games library and consoles and up to 5yr warranty etc is truly invaluable to me.
    Many other sim racers who already don't have this kind of support end up buying 3rd party devices, and/or making quick releases etc to resolve these issues, that can end up costing them more, aren't as integrated, reliable and or functional.

    I am very excited for this, and the Official F1 branded rims! Great time ahead :smile: it also means I don't have to sell my V2, that can now become a second rig and can share the rims and get the hand me downs from it's bigger DD brothers rig :smiley:

    If the silhouette of Podium Racing wheel is real , the design should come from CS formula wheel ..

    Blue circles sth like encoders for adjusting brake bias or TCS ,etc

    Yellow circle seem refined the led rev light bigger? Lighter?

    Green circles are the buttons, same position as CSFW does

    Come on people... First the Sim Community Begs Fanatec to Make a DD wheel... Fanatec finally said they would do it but Thomas/Fanatec always said it wont be cheap!!! They Do Research and development and Create a DD motor that is specific to Sim Racing Needs <-- Not a Hybrid/ Stepper motor but a True Sim Racing DD Motor!!! No external Boxes, No USB cord but wireless Power and Data transmission to give us Fully functional on Rim Button and Data screen with the Fanatec trade mark on Wheel Tuning Menu!!! also there is a Data Display on the wheel base its self to display FFB input Graph and all sorts of other stuff <--What other DD wheel has any of this??? What did you think it would Cost??? The Day that Fanatec Annouced a DD wheel was in the works i started Planning and saving So I would be Ready!!! <--- Keep in mind the DD2 is the Big Boy Wheel and any time you get the top tier Model for any product line it cost more.... So again i wonder what did you think it would cost??? Especially Long Term Fanatec Customers because if you have wheel and pedals then it cost the same as any other DD wheel out there because you Only Need the wheel base but the Fanatec Base Does Much more than the rest of them because again what other DD wheel Has a on the Base Data, Telemetry, tuning Screen??? also with other DD bases you have to buy QR and Button Boxes for the wheel rims so other DD options may even cost more $$$ to get them 100% up and running.... For Me after owning and using the 911 gt2, CSR Elite, CSW v2, CSW v2.5 each New wheel has gotten better and better there is No way i would Miss the chance to Own a Fanatec DD base!!! it seems that instead of complaining the DD was taking to long to be launched that Many should have focused on Saving all the extra $$$ that could be saved because Now the Fanatec DD wheels are here and seems many are Not Ready. .. These are the Facts and My thoughts So No Need for Debates.
  • how do we pre order without paying total up front? i want to order but am not paying 6 mths infront
    you don't lol.... it's fanatec we're talking about....... 
  • Not enthusiastic with price point for the smaller market this will attract. I represent 90% or of your fan base that can't afford or justify this price perhaps. Will wait a few years and get one second hand possibly. A stronger 20nm OSW is 500$ cheaper :/. bummer I was really hoping DD was ready to go mainstream. I make good money but I just can't see this making sense for myself anyway. Cheers Thomas! your still the man and i wish you great success...sincerily think prices will get better for us all in the future when you can afford to sell these at more consumer friendly price. (I am very impressed with this seemingly very refined DD tech though)
  • What this supposed to mean??? Why is this article relevant???.... There is a Date set for the Podium DD2 wheel base... The other wheel bases can Not be pre ordered yet... So this article is Moot.... and by the way the delay with the McClaren Rim Fanatec gave a Free QR or the Value of the QR to those that Pre Ordered the Rim as a Compensation for the delay --> I was Very Satisfied with that and I knew that I would use the Compensation Code when i ordered My Podium wheel base... Which i did and i am Very Satisfied.... there is No Need to trash talk Fanatec if you like then you Buy... You No Like Then You No Buy Very Simple.
  • I suppose it's out of the question that Fanatec might offer a payment plan?? Like 12 months interest-free credit for previous good customers?
    If only! Just dreaming @-)

    Well Sir if your gullible enough to think that there pricing is fine, and that we have to pay out more because of there research and development, WHY,  its not like DDs haven't been around for a long time, and they certainly do NOT  need to make them that expensive, yes great it all comes in a neat box and no need for anything else, so lets pay a ridiculous amount just because they come up with some different way to present a DD, that's just rude marketing, all my gear is Fanatec, because in the past all gear has been at a reasonable price, a little high perhaps but fine with most consumers, but if they insist on making sim racers look like fools buying gear that is way over priced, they will lose cliental.

  • hello!!! the price of the ps4?
  • Are all sim racers whiny little girls?;-) 

    I do think DD wheels are expensive, but the Fanatec version is a no brainer, if your already invested, and I for on plan on getting a few wheels while i wait for the DD1 and/or ps4 edition, McLaren and Porsche.

    Will the current ps4 compatible wheels, be ps4 compatible with the DD1PS4 base?

    Do we need an emergency stop button, if we don't use the torque key?

    German humor is an acquired taste, and is a lot better after a few beers;-) but for gamers a little gamble on an auction, might be fun.
    I want it yesterday as well, but now I have time to upgrade the rest of my rig.
  • Hopefully the shifters will not be built like the McLaren rim like the wip principle. It would be great, as with the clubsport steering wheels, that you can replace the shifter with higher quality magnet shifters.

  • I just want to Know more info on the PS4 DD base like price and pre order dates, don’t really have any need for the DD2 since I already have the Bodnar 54 system for my PC sims
  • Is there a table mounting bracket for the DD? or could just use the clubsport table clamp?

    Hard mounting is highly recommended due to the high torque

    Yeah, it seems pretty bad.
    It's a toy steering wheel to play video games, and people have completely lost their minds.


  • I missed the facebook stream as I was traveling and it hasn't been posted anywhere.

    We know the DD2 is going to ship in december, do we know when the DD1 is going to ship?
  • For those of us who own both PS4 and Xbox One, if you put an Xbox One universal hub on the PS4 compatible DD1, can you use It on Xbox too?
    Would like to know that too. Can one put an Elite Wheel P1 for example on the PS4 version of the DD1 and have both Xbox and PS4 compatibility then?
    Thomas says, YES you can.....
  • According to video jackermeier interview, the torque is automatically lowered when a p1 is mounted to protect the plastic from breakage
  • Will the auctions stop and a price be put on DD1? If so, then when will that be? I want to order it.
  • Please give us the dimensions of the base, width, height, depth & length of shaft if possible. And more info about "All-Aluminium housing & Exchangeable brushed aluminium cover plates." On the DD2, is it real carbon fibre and can it be replaced by these aluminium cover plates, thanks
  • Silly that the PS4 version ships with a rim again. Drives up the price and almost impossible to sell the PS4 rims.
    I find the dedicated PS4 rims pretty useless, I always use my P1 Elite or McLaren since these can be used on PS4, Xbox and PC.
    The PS4 rims can't be used on Xbox.
    Hoping for a nice wheel like the Porsche 918 with Xbox compatibility that I can use on all three platforms.

    Silly that the PS4 version ships with a rim again. 
    This is most likely a requirement from SONY,but I would say that one year after the release there will be stand-alone Podium PS4 base just like with the CSL Elite PS4.
  • If the current wheels can be used on the DD will the upcoming Podium Wheels be compatable with the CSW base V2.5?

  • Will the auctions stop and a price be put on DD1? If so, then when will that be? I want to order it.
    Yes there will be a set price. You will be able to order it like normal after the December launch.

    Lorrell Waddell, yes there is a very simple solution, if your silly enough to pay that ridiculous price, then fine go ahead, yes your not the only one pre ordering, its because of the stupidness of people like yourselves that Fanatec get away with these sort of prices, and I will be laughing at you when the prices do drop, due to minimal sales, and that will be a fact as the coming months will show, good luck on your very overpriced piece of equipment, I will stick to my V2.5, buying the V2.5 was certainly reasonable and it doesn't make you look like a fool buying it. And to pre order the DD2 this far back being so expensive is a very rookie thing to do, obviously you have more money than brains.

    Good god you're one of those people...who does everything right, and anyone who doesn't do things the way you do is "stupid". 

    Do you know there are people that would call you stupid for thinking a v2.5 is also reasonably priced? I also own a v2.5...and I've met such people. Doesn't make them right.

    Also, some people may be calling you stupid for not knowing how to reply properly in a forum (hint: don't type in the gray box; I fixed it for you in my reply)...point is, you need to grow up mentally. You're not the absolute authority on what is right and wrong in the world, so get off your high horse and stop judging everyone so harshly. 

    I can't afford a DD1 or DD2, obviously you can't either, but that doesn't mean others like Lorrell can't afford it comfortably, nor should they have to explain themselves to anyone. Live and let live.

    I think we all get your point of view. But seriously, just because you disagree, it's no reason to insult people who pre ordered it. If someone think it's worth the money, than it's his opinion and his money.

    Thats Not My Original Post thats Quoted.. the Quoted post are Mixed up some how... I Pre Orderd at 4pm Ny time on Day 1!!! ... You should Go Read My Post and you would see that i was responding to some one who was saying the wheel will Not sell due to its price.

    There is no need for the kill switch if used with the torque key as it will reduce the torque to a level of the CSW V2.5

      I have no dubt it will be a fine wheel but I use Xbox and PC mainly and PS only for PS exclusives. So for me a rim like the McLaren I have is more intersting since it can cover all 3 platforms. A PS4 rim with no Xbox compatibility usually stays in the closet like the one that came with my CSL Elite for PS4, I simply use the P1 Elite rim or McLaren.
    And selling it is not really an option as it can only be used with the PS4 bases and most people have bought those as a package with the same rim. People who bought the base only at a later date probably won't want it either else they would have bought the kit.

    But not much can be done about it since Sony requires it. Xbox for the win!  :)
    And Kudos to Fanatec for having the only system with compatibility for 3 platforms!  :)

    Hard to know without a concrete price on the DD1. Given that the difference between DD1 and DD2 sounds like it's limited to the motor, it's hard to anticipate anything more than a $200 difference. Specifically I'd guess the DD1 will be priced at $1295.

    That puts the DD1 at the same price point in the US for just the base against the Accuforce V2 complete package.The fanatec ecosystem is amazing and I love all the quality rim options, on the other hand the Accuforce V2 is on sale for $150 off and is available right now. I'm interested to see how the auctions go, but I'm really aching to upgrade my wheel soon.
  • Don't forget that DD2 has 3 years warranty instead of 2 for DD1.
    If additional 2 years cost 300€ for the DD2, we can consider 150€ per warranty year to substract.
    Also, there will no kill switch in the package (see DD1's features page)...
