Microsoft Launches the Xbox 360 Wireless Speed Wheel

Any motorsports enthusiast out there will for sure feel the adrenaline rushing through their veins when the news of a new gaming accessory, which has just been announced, reaches their ears. We are talking here about Microsoft’s newly launched Wireless Speed Wheel for the Xbox 360, set to go on sale in early October.

According to its manufacturer, the product is completely wireless and controlled intuitively with precise steering, standard controller buttons/triggers, and haptic feedback with rumble.

The device, which is compatible with all racing games will be available for $59.99, which we might say it’s pretty affordable, and will ship to retailers worldwide beginning September 26, 2011.

The new Xbox 360 Wireless Speed Wheel includes buttons for game specific functions including triggers, ABXY and D-pad along with green bands of lights on each handle to provide visual cues when necessary.

“With trigger buttons for gas and brake, combined with a rumble feedback, the Xbox 360 Wireless Speed Wheel provides intuitive standard controller buttons that immerse the driver into the game, whether you like to white knuckle it down the race track with your hands at “10 and 2” or “9 and 3.”

The new Xbox 360 Wireless Speed Wheel balances the realism of a wheel with the feel of a controller for greater user edge in game play,” a company statement reads.

One racing video game that is set to launch this October, at about the same time with the Xbox 360 Wireless Speed Wheel, is the much awaited Forza Motorsport 4, with over 80 auto brands featured. The game also makes use of the Kinect system, a fact confirmed by Microsoft at the E3 2011 earlier this week.
