I’m curious how you gas and brake with this thing? I understand gas for bikes with the throttle, but how when in car mode? And braking? Or are there triggers behind the handles that I can’t see in the pics?

Looks incredibly stupid. Are you supposed to hold it out in the air? Rest it on your lap?

It needs to be attached to something but that would make it a standard racing wheel, which is the only thing that makes sense if you’re going to use a wheel in a racing game.

It does shock the hell out of me that it will be compatible with GT5. So much for racing realism…Polyphony Digital can’t be happy about it…

Make for ModNation Racers!

I thought what tustin was thinking. no stand or mount for this is gonna be awkard. And how soon will patches for the few listed games actually appear?

This thing looks really really silly. :\

I can’t wait to try this out when LittleBigPlanet Karting releases. That’s awesome that those other racing games are getting Move updates.

But…. why? Anything other than LBP Karting supporting this at all? Thought that we were done with Move after Sorcery didn’t get any support.

I love you Sony, but it looks like you went off the deep end. This thing looks more like a high-tech dowsing rod.

It looks like something a foreign power will attach to my scrotum and twist to try and get information out of me!

I love move, but I’ll pass thanks!

That’s not a wheel, it’s a bow. Come on, look at it open. I’ld bet they “invented” this for Sports Champions, decided nobody would use it b/c it’s too big and clunky, and salvaged it as a wheel.
And no, I haven’t seen The Hunger Games, but if they make a game for it, this peripheral will be sold for it.

Seems cool, i guess, however $40 is overpriced.

@16…. Yeah, thats what happened (moron).

How is this a racing “wheel”?

Hooligantuan said:

There’s a circular sorta shape in there. That’s kinda wheel.

More handlebars than anything, though.

I can ride my bike without those. Pass.

Thanks for the heads up Anand.

I read about this a while back and wondered if Sony dropped the idea.

I will be getting it for sure…love racing games !

I keep thinking it looks like some sort of BATARANG. Looks cool but need to try it out!

GGCAN said:

June 5th, 9:33 am

@ 19 Hooligantuan…..

The handle bars look great for riding motorbikes in Burnout or GT 5 !

WellSeeYouLater said:

June 5th, 9:54 am

Will there be a comprehensive list of games that can use it?

WhatIsUpdog said:

June 5th, 10:27 am

That looks even more like a sex toy than just the move controller!

StarFoxMania said:

please STOP! Do not turn this great entertainment system into another nintendo crap. Encourage people to buy Logitech wheels, not this …… urggghhhhhhh…. hungry marketing move… sell plastic, make money!

$40? Haha And GT5 does not support move.

dragonlord72 said:

Not a chance already spent more than 200 bucks on a Logitech racing wheel. This little move add-on gimmick can’t compete with that. The wheel works flawlessly on every game i’ve played with it,should be interesting to see if the move can perform as good.

@ ThreeLeggedFreak

PD will most likely release an update to support this Move Racing Wheel.
