    If only fanatec would get off their asses and make a PS4 compatible wheel. I'm still running my CSR, won't be buying a new wheel until this one dies, or Fanatec makes a PS4 compatible wheel.

    Solid review though.

    wonders how much it differs from v2 base.for sim racing it would be ideal for rally not sure.i was quite a bit slower and didnt like the gearstick if im honest.

    Thnx for watching guys! 

    I do not own the CSW V2 so a direct comparison was not possible unfortunetaly :/
    Do you mean the Fanatec shifter? 

    And yea Darkredslayer i hope that Playstation provides Fanatec with the necessary licenses soon! :) It's up to PS and not Fanatec ;) 

    Bye!

    well its basically the same base almost identical.to V.2

    yes the shifter for rally is too slow or clunky in my opinion.as i told them in feedback.

    hopefully someone does make a fluid gearstick for rally and more hand brakes which are pretty rare unless you pay silly amounts.yes they do a nice one but not many other options.

    This wheel costs more than double what a PS4 costs, such a waste, why not just plug it into a PC where it belongs? :p

    I personally use the padels and have the shifter in sq mode and use down shift as a handbrake. I would get fanatecs handbrake but I need to mod something onto my rig to make it fit right.

    That's actually not the case, Fanatec made a deal with sony in 2016. They just haven't bothered to release a wheel yet.

    Narrow minded viewpoint. 

    I have a lot of friends who game on PS4 and don't game on PC, There are also games like Gran Turismo that will never hit PC.

    Besides that, I actually do game on PC, with a triple monitor set up and a Fanatec CSR. PC has a I7 4790k, R9 390 8gb and 16 gb of ram. But I want a wheel that works on both my primary platforms, that being PC and PS4.

    Not every one games on PC, not everyone can afford it, that doesn't mean I don't want to game with them still, but it does mean I need a wheel that works on their preferred platform because racing with a controller is like stabbing yourself in the eye with a pencil.

    Link? 

    All I could find was cross platform leaderboards, which are not at all the same as being able to race eachother.
