Fanatec lancia il preordine del Podium Racing Wheel per Playstation 4
Dopo la delusione con l'annuncio del ritardo a fine aprile della versione per PC del Podium Racing Wheel direct drive, a causa di gravi problemi elettrici, la tedesca Fanatec lancia il preordine dello stesso prodotto ma in versione per Playstation 4, che sarà disponibile (in teoria), sempre per la fine di aprile. Il Fanatec Podium Racing Wheel direct drive è in preordine da subito al prezzo di 1,499.95€ ed oltre alla base include anche il nuovo volante con licenza Formula 1. Questo modello, oltre ad essere esplicitamente creato per PS4 con licenza, funziona anche con il PC.
Ci poniamo però a questo punto due domande: la tempistica di fine aprile, visti i problemi della versione per PC, sarà rispettata dalla Fanatec ? Ma soprattutto, può avere senso spendere per un volante ben sei volte di più che per comprare la stessa console da utilizzare ?
It's finally here! The first ever Direct Drive on PS4™! Take your racing experience to the ultimate level with the Fanatec Podium Racing Wheel F1® - Officially Licensed for PS4™
