I dont own an Xbox, Gamer tag is OneZero5ive though
:vtec:gamertag: AIRITEOkay so no one wants to set up a RSX 500 class race?
Racing games is what got me into the jdm cars with Tokyo extreme racer and the preview for the first Fast and Furious and real Tokyo racer movies that were in the game(rent it if you don't know what im talking about). Real life I was rolling GM Cadillac and Pontiac. then I saw the rsx in 2002 commercial and I was like that's sweet looking. So I stopped reading magazines about car stereos and started in on super street and import tuner and modified mag. then I was like I love this fast and furious lifestyle, JDM, HIN ect. and when I needed a car with good gas mileage in 08 after I got a job with Hustler 40 miles from my house I was looking at 350's and G35's and Subaru and more. playing games and reading LOTS of articles lead me to want the rsx over all others. I drove my rsx for 2 years with no mods "learning to drive" x 2. then a guy was selling a greddy midpipe only on craigslist. when I met up with him he said two things that changed my life forever. 1- he had to sell his parts because he had a family to pay for. 2- go online to Clubrsx.com and I could find answers there. So I knew 2 things 1-dont ever sell your passion off because that's no example for your kids!! 2- Go to clubrsx.com. I raced video game versions of the rsx in every game that had one. I read and read and read on clubrsx never saying much of anything to anybody not wanting to be flamed and still learning and deciding what I wanted to change. I would go and make fake builds and see what the competitive result in game was compared to what people were saying online. I used games to try out different parts, looks, and styles. Reaction time is a link between your brain to your body. your can quicken this link using muscle memory and repetition. I Used a racing wheel in games since before the rsx was made. Professional drivers do it so its probably helping anyone else who does.hahahaha bet you guys are hella pro racers in real life too
What are your guy's gamer tag?
this guy gets it.The manual with clutch shifts substantially faster then regular manual mode. Makes for quicker laps
i've seen people using wheels for fighting games. it's pretty funny.I don't how software works, but I imagine there are compatibility issues, licensing issues, and also profit incentives.
It's maybe similar to why you can't use a PS4 controller with an Xbox One and vice versa. Also Xbox One controllers have actual software inside that can be updated. I'm not sure about the PS4 controllers, but it certainly means that there's more going on than just a standard input signal.
It's probably possible to make steering wheel set-ups for both, but you have to consider that these consoles are still relatively young and don't have a decent library, not to mention racing games, so perhaps the demand isn't there.
When you look at racing games for Xbone and PS4, the only games I can think of as "Simulators" are Forza 5 & 6, Drive Club, Project Cars. I wouldn't even call Forza 5 a sim because it's really lacking in content, but it's close enough. The rest are Arcade racers. NFS, Horizon 2, The Crew, they don't really have a way of utilizing a steering wheel. Sure, you could use a wheel for Horizon 2 because the handling is quite good, but you're not really going to be chasing lap times in that game. That's on top of PS4 not having a GT game yet.
I just don't think there are enough people who want those wheels to really warrant a mass production. When you look at PC, then yeah, it's easy. There are tons of racing sims on PC and because of how shitty keyboard controls are, you almost have to use some sort of controller for racing games. Plus it's really easy to re-bind keys. And wheels can work for many different set-ups as long as you download drivers. So when you buy a good wheel setup for a PC, you can use it for a long time. Once you buy a wheel for a PS3 or a PS4, you usually can't use it for both.
