So it finally appears that GT5 will actually be released here in a few weeks and that is something to be happy out all by itself. Now you can play GT5 with a regular controller but after all this waiting you have done, that almost seems to be a let down. Well have no fear because we have just the thing, VisionRacer. What’s VisionRacer you say?
It’s pretty much the ultimate way to play any racing game on PS3. The VisionRacer VR3 is a polished stainless steel, racing simulator chassis system. It uses a Logitech steering wheel, pedals, gear lever and 5:1 audio system. Used along with PS3 (or PC) and LCD Screen the VR3 becomes a realistic racing simulator. The Gear shift mount can be mounted on the left or right hand side of the seat. Every VR3 has an individual serial number plate and a complimentary years membership to their community.
Now I don’t honestly know if I have the physical space in my home to house one of these babies, but I might give it a try, I mean if you use a normal DualShock or Sixaxis controller then it appears that you have never experienced anything like this. VisionRacer gives you more control over your racing experience than you have ever had before and that’s no laughing matter. Now we know that times are tough and we would never suggest you buy an accessory for one game, no that would be crazy. The VisionRacer supports any PlayStation 3 racing title that supports a wheel and pedals. As we said the VisionRacer currently supports the PS3 and PC, but for you Xbox guys all is not lost. The Fanatec wheel can be mounted to the VisionRacer, they will offer an adapter set when the wheel becomes freely available.
Check out the vid below to see the VisionRacer in action and if you are really impressed and want to pick one up then check out the details here. Before you click that link though, understand that at $1300 this is not just a toy its an investment. Check it out and let us know what you think. For those of you that have bought one, what do you think of it?
