very expensive for what it is. It's a premium price purely for xbox one from what I can see. A comparible wheel spec wise would be the driving force gt on PS3 and PC and it's around £70 I think.

This may be slightly better but if you want a wheel for PC then there are better for the price. For Xbox one, you may be stuck with this.

An honest good review here - goes through the pros and cons of this wheel

Not complete BS. I have researched many wheels for use on PC. The T500 from Thrustmaster being my best choice but failing that the G27 from Logitech. The G27 is the same price as this from PC World and also has the clutch and shifter. This is similar in spec to the Driving force GT except the motor / force feedback mechanism, which of course would be different as it's by Thrustmaster, not logitech.

It may be a good wheel but without the clutch or shifter, you are paying £200 for not much

I don't like the wheel either, it looks very tacky and cheap like it's £70 version.
But that doesn't mean it is, please check the review posted above. Totally different wheels.

Ok, I watched the video review and I stand corrected about the quality of the steering and force feedback. It does sound impressive. For the money though I'm suprised you dont get a better quality wheel, clutch and shifter. I only say this comparing the product to the Logitech G27.

That said though, Thrustmaster do have the T500 so probably dont want you to get too much for your money otherwise the T500 would be redundant.

I may keep this on my radar in case it drops lower in price.

It is a weak market at the moment (on the Xbox One side). Largely because of lack of wheels and games that use them!

The console is only 3 months old though and the advantage of this is you can upgrade/change parts as you go. For the enthusiast this is the best sort of thing available for the Xbox One today. I am sure in time better things will come though

Any T500RS rim will fit on the TX, the GTE rim is a very good replacement, but it is another £80 from Ebuyer.
