    So it is for PS4, but it is funky alright, worth a mention. Thrustmaster is releasing a Bluetooth LED display unit, which competitive racers can position wherever they like in order to have all vital ...

    making it in an hour, and making it work (with the console) isnt the same ;-)

    i am wondering how long the company/maker willing to support this product ?
    without product support (updated with new games), this display is just cheap-junk

    as this product is more for racing-game-bigfan... i dont think most racing-gamer that maniac to buy these ... so i am guessing it just sell some...
    will it be "poor-sales but good product support" ?
    never hear a company that generous before

    You have got to be f*cking kidding me, not withstanding the fact that you could just look at the screen and see ALL the info this thing displays anyone who can drive for sh*t is going to know what gear they are in, it's a fundamental part of driving craft to know what gear you should be in at what point on a course, even that is basic driving craft you should know braking points and acceleration points without having to look at some five buck 5th grade tech class project knock off.

    It should be built into the wheel itself.

    It's clearly aimed at the racing simulator crowd where there's a market for this kind of gear, strange that it's PS4 only tho, personally I wouldn't bother with something like this, i'm happy with my Thrustmaster T300 and T3PA pedals and my Next Level Racing stand, only thing I plan on picking up is a decent gear stick, currently using the paddles on the back of the wheel.

    I don't understand why they wouldn't support PC.

    I'm actually interested in it. It looks like it supports RGB but the article did not say RGB. Anyone know?

    @stereoman
    a stick? what for?
    i dont see a use beyond a simulator with cars that are over 10-20 y old,
    and/or were only available as (non automated) manuals.

    I bought the wheel and pedals about a month ago as I finally decided to start taking driving lessons and I figured I could use them to practise on outside of lessons, that and I was really getting into Dirt Rally in VR so I figured it was high time I got a wheel setup, I play some Euro Truck simulator as well but yeah the gear stick is more just to practise with :)
