In occasione della Game Developer's Conference (GDC) Logitech ha presentato il Driving Force GT, il volante ufficiale della serie Gran Turismo - titolo PS3 atteso il 28 marzo in Europa. Equipaggiato con tecnologia Force Feedback e comando a 24 posizioni che regola in tempo reale reazione di frenata, trazione e damper, la nuova periferica per Playstation 3 sarà disponibile da maggio al prezzo suggerito al pubblico di 149,99 euro IVA inclusa.

Logitech e Polyphony Digital Inc., sviluppatore della serie Gran Turismo, hanno collaborato per tutto il processo di sviluppo, integrando un esclusivo comando di regolazione in tempo reale, novità assoluta nei volanti Force Feedback, che permette di configurare con estrema accuratezza gli assetti della vettura modificando i parametri di frenata, trazione e damper. Ora i piloti di Gran Turismo possono controllare con precisione la messa a punto della propria auto e ottenere le massime prestazioni.

Il volante Force Feedback di Logitech, con un diametro di 28cm circa, presenta un rivestimento in gomma che assicura un'impugnatura comoda e riproduce in modo accurato le caratteristiche di sottosterzo, sovrasterzo e perdita di trazione della vettura. I pedali del freno e dell'acceleratore, di dimensioni reali, assicurano il totale controllo sul gas e sulla frenata e, per scalare le marce, è possibile utilizzare la leva del cambio sequenziale oppure i pulsanti integrati nello sterzo.

Logitech Driving Force GT ha un raggio di rotazione di 900 gradi e al centro del volante è posizionato il clacson, fedele al suono originale dell'auto che si sta guidando, illuminato con il logo ufficiale Gran Turismo e ideale per avvisare le altre vetture che si avvicinano velocemente oppure, come nella versione online, suonarlo per salutare i giocatori delle auto sorpassate.

PRESS RELEASE:

Today at the Game Developer’s Conference (GDC), Logitech, the world’s leading developer of force feedback gaming wheels, announced the Logitech Driving Force™ GT racing wheel, the official wheel of Gran Turismo™. Featuring powerful force feedback and an innovative 24-position real-time adjustment dial for on-the-fly control of brake bias, traction and damper settings, the Logitech Driving Force GT gives gamers the most accurate and authentic PLAYSTATION3 (PS3) racing experience.

“We’re excited to be working with Polyphony Digital again to deliver a wheel that will satisfy the needs of car enthusiasts, like me, around the world,” said Ruben Mookerjee, Logitech’s director of product marketing for gaming. “People who love the striking realism of the Gran Turismo racing series will discover that Logitech’s latest wheel will allow them to experience the cars the way they were meant to be driven. With the Logitech Driving Force GT, you’re not playing games anymore – you’re racing!”

Logitech’s latest racing wheel was meticulously designed by Logitech and Polyphony Digital, Inc., the developer of the Gran Turismo series. The companies worked together to add the unique real-time adjustment dial, a first for force feedback wheels, allowing people to fine tune the car’s balance by adjusting the brake bias, traction control and damper settings. Now Gran Turismo drivers can have precise control over the car’s setup to achieve maximum performance.

“The Gran Turismo series has always been designed for racing enthusiasts,” said Kazunori Yamauchi, President of Polyphony Digital. “The Driving Force GT racing wheel was designed to perfection by our team, specifically for the next generation of Gran Turismo.”

Logitech’s newest force feedback wheel simulates understeer, oversteer, and traction loss with frightening accuracy. While the full-size gas and brake pedals deliver precise throttle and brake response, racers can use either the sequential stick shift or the wheel-mounted paddles to race through gears. The wheel also features a large 27.9 cm (11-inch) wheel with rubber-overmould rim, providing exceptional comfort and control.

The Logitech Driving Force GT turns 900 degrees lock-to-lock allowing drivers to navigate hairpin turns with greater accuracy. And with anti-backlash gearing, there is no slack in the steering response, making any race a smooth, realistic experience. In the centre of the 27.9 cm (11-inch) wheel, the Driving Force GT features an illuminated horn button with the official Gran Turismo logo. Using the authentic sounds of the car being driven, racers can quickly alert other cars when they are approaching fast. Or when playing online, people can simply use the horn to taunt other players as they speed by.

The Logitech Driving Force GT wheel is engineered for use with Gran Turismo 5 Prologue on PS3, which will be available on Blu-ray Disc™ (BD) and as a download on the PLAYSTATION®Network in North America on April 17 and in Europe on March 28. The Logitech Driving Force GT wheel is also compatible with Gran Turismo™3 and Gran Turismo™4 on the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system.

Pricing and Availability

The Logitech Driving Force GT wheel is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning in May. The suggested retail price is 149.99 (U.S.).
