  • Considering there's Playstation buttons on it I assume it will be compatible on PS4...which I guess is great for CSW users. Like I said in a previous post, so far all the Porsches wheel users are pretty much screwed.
  • Xbox rim next? or even a new base :)

    Stephen and all Xbox users, please stop asking for XBone wheels, it's super annoying to see it mentioned everywhere. Read their blog post here as to why you don't have a wheel: http://us.fanatec.com/forum/discussion/85/xbox-one-compatibility-faq-and-poll#latest

    According to that post, Fanatec hasn't even started development on a new wheel because Microsoft is currently focused on large volume 3rd party vendors like Mad Catz. While it will likely be a while until they are ready to announce something, when the time comes it will be announced on this blog and on Facebook.

    With Fanatec's recent ridiculous prices, I just don't understand why any console gamers would drop more than the cost of an XBone to play the only racing game you currently have access to.
  • You've got my attention now Thomas. Don't really want those Playstation buttons if I'm using PC though, I take it they're removable or you can order it without them?
  • This is a wheel I will get when it's ready for sale - well done Thomas :)

In the meantime, sit tight and play the only racing game that you have, Forza 5.

    lol..one second...
    Fanatec posted this wheel and said 'what do you think is next?'
    As this wheel is clearly a PS4 rim then my guess would be something for Xbox One or a completely new base.
    Just because Thomas has previously said nothing is on the cards for Xbox One, doesn't mean it isn't..there are such things as NDA's ;)

    I'm not a console racer thanks :) I got rid of Forza 5 after a few weeks as it was naff ;)

    The buttons dont look great IMO, but then I dont think I'd want a wheel this small personally
  • Wenn die PS4 das CSW unterstützt, is das Teil gekauft. Erneute Glanzleistung Thomas! Alcantara würde mir zwar noch besser gefallen, aber auf jeden Fall ist es auch so ein geiles Teil. Haben will...  :D
  • Maybe we can swap the rim out, which is why the button cluster is separate :)
  • :)>-  Come to daddy!  :O)
  • @Stephen
    Fair enough. My apologies.

    As insinuated by the picture the next announcement will likely be PS3/4 related. I'm guessing that more information will be posted on what it is that is hidden behind the wheel.
  • So can you remove the buttons? I would not want playstation buttons adding weight and looking arcady...OR...can you perhapse remove the wheel rim itself?
  • Looks great, PS4 announcement soon?

    Come on - Round "1" with a  detachable console button module.....hmmmmm.......I think an Xbox "One" button module  is next!
  • finally something practical how long till the summer and when is it for sale in australia ?

    Your a more dedicated Fanatec User than I am Frans. Sadly enough none of the new rims are appealing enough for me to buy at this moment in time.

    Next rim will be a lightweight authentic Rally rim .............   :-?
  • C'mon Thomas, please tell us if our CSR Elite will work with PS4?? It's very important for us to know. After all if it doesn't work will need to sell it, and that will to tough if it's not working with PS4.
  • Nice wheel....but very expensive
    :-??
  • Yes! That's more like it.

    If you'd said you were producing wheels for all occasions we may have been more patient in earlier criticisms (for the Classic, Carbon Formula & NASCAR wheels)

    Now it's all making sense!

    Prices are a bit sharp though it has to be said... In this company the original GT rim looks like great value and I never thought I would say that...
  • And why do we have to pay quite a bit more in Europe (EUR prive vs Dollar price)?

    A bit strange considering you are a Eurpean company....

    As soon as information is available it will be shared. No information now means there is nothing definitve yet, and these things are usually under heavy NDA until finished.

    Thx Remco, I am just trying to figure out what my next move will be, selling CSR Elite (which I adore), buying T500 instead, or something new from Fanatec. I don't have that much money to send in once, so I need to plan my purchases ahead.

    The only problem I have with that is where those buttons are behind the wheel. They wouldnt be easily accessable while driving.


    Please at least have one new wheel (not just a rim) announcement soon.

    The dollar price excludes tax (VAT)

    Now we are talking! That's a 100% buy for me when it is out. I just don't like the PlayStation buttons on the top, since I recently only play on PC...but that's a pity.

    I love the buttons on the front and the small paddle shifters.
  • Das ist mal eine coole Idee. 
  • clients csr, csr elite and porsche have been abandoned?
  • clients csr, csr elite and porsche have been abandoned?
    Not sure what you mean? They still get support if needed and you can still buy all wheels except the CSRE which has been discontinued some time ago already. Porsche and CSR wheels are not going to get new rims (never were), so I'm not sure where the impression of abandonment comes from?
  • edited May 2014
    Looking at that design you could put any 3rd party rim you wanted on and still have the buttons, first wheel which has made me sit up and take notice :-) imagine the wheel missing and that is your universal Fanatec base QR Hub with electronics built in. Now some SLI type fitment on the hub as an add on .........

    we realized that the possesori csr elite, porsche and csr will not have the compatible Xbox1 but at least let's see whether they will be compatible with ps4 doing some baking-pan or some adapter

    Looks like a nice wheel.

    Compatibility with consoles is not for Fanatec to decide unfortunately.
  • Thomas / Remco

    Ik would like the know the weight of the rim, so i can comparte it to the weight of my BMW rim.

    This is definitely in the right ballpark. It looks awesome and makes me very curious to how the controls and display will work on these new wheels. 
    All I am hoping for now is a similar rim with a diameter of 29 or 30 cm. If the controls/buttons/display are good, I would probably buy a wheel like that, even though I still think the price is a bit steep.
  • My wife gets mostly Apple products phones and iPad's and I get fanatec club sport products I'm just having a ball right now thank Fanatec.

    Sounds like a great marrige. I´m divorced, so I get both :D

  • hello thomas since I do not know if the csr or csr elite porsche will be compatible for xbox or ps4 will do one or adapters, but you can not do a recycling program for old steering wheels for the new steering wheel and make a difference? thanks

     

  • Pls admin. Make a separate thread for Xbox and PS postings.

    Très joli volant.
    J'aimerais un volant Porsche GT3RS pour le CSW, ça serait le top pour moi. 

    mon anglais est très mauvais, c'est pour ça que j'écrit en français.
    Je suis Suisse et je parle que le français.
    My English is very bad, this is why I wrote in French. 
    I am Swiss and I speak French.

    Frans Brink did you leave youtube for a while?. 
    I loved your videos.
  • Är det OK om vi skriver på svenska också?
  • Is it possible that this wheel, the Classic and the Oval rims are all using a common, modular quick release?  Is this why the price of all three are the same, even though the classic and oval lack bells and whistles?  Is the next release the modular quick release itself? 
  • edited May 2014
    Well looks like I made the right choice choosing to change to a clubsport set up, all the new wheel announcements have me spoilt for choice on what rim to get first.

    [EDIT]

    I also think that coming next from you guys is an adapter for any wheel, given that this pic seems to be the clue.


  • With Fanatec's recent ridiculous prices, I just don't understand why any console gamers would drop more than the cost of an XBone to play the only racing game you currently have access to.



    The same reason any gamer would. To have fun. I have purchased 5 different wheels and 2 sets of pedals and shifters from Fanatec over the years which I use mainly for console gaming. I have a decent PC rig but I prefer consoles. Simpler / plug and play. I currently have the CSRE but if Fanatec announces the CSW will become compatible with the PS4 (I purchased a TX458 for the X1 already) I will sell off my CSRE and purchase the base and a couple rims from the ASAP.
