Turtle Beach announced a Direct Drive wheel and pedal set for PC, XBox X|S and XBox One a couple of weeks ago that releases a month from today. It seems over-priced to me, for what it is and how ‘gamey’ it looks, but it’s always nice to see another brand entering the market. Check out the images and video below.
DROP THE HAMMER & SHIFT INTO A NEW LEVEL OF REALISM WITH TURTLE BEACH’S VELOCITYONE RACE FOR XBOX & WINDOWS PC
White Plains, NY – January 16, 2024 – Best-selling gaming headset and accessory maker Turtle Beach Corporation (Nasdaq: HEAR), today announced the latest addition to the brand’s esteemed line of gaming simulation gear with the Turtle Beach® VelocityOne™ Race. Designed for Xbox and Windows PCs by Turtle Beach’s multi-award-winning VelocityOne simulation group, this groundbreaking universal wheel & pedal system is engineered to take the pole position and checkered flag as it resets the bar in racing simulation performance.
“Our VelocityOne gaming simulation products have already dominated the flight sim accessory market, and we’re excited to expand Turtle Beach’s catalog further by bringing this same level of ultra-realism and premium simulation performance to the world of racing,” said Cris Keirn, Interim CEO and SVP of Global Sales, Turtle Beach Corporation.
Racing sim fans who want to go fast will experience high-fidelity direct-drive force feedback through VelocityOne Race’s custom K: Drive™ motor that delivers ultra-realistic, powerful response while maintaining smooth steering and detailed reactions to in-race events. At racers’ feet, VelocityOne Race’s aluminum pedals and Dynamic Brake Tek™ load-cell brakes simulate true-to-life braking performance. Drivers will also be able to monitor real-time race telemetry data in supported racing games, as well as customize controls using the integrated Race Management Display™. VelocityOne Race’s Tuner companion app and remappable buttons offer even more customization. A hand-stitched leather wheel provides enhanced realism and improved grip while banging through gears using Mag-Shift™ paddle shifters that deliver fast, reliable, and consistent shifts. Plus, two additional analog paddles with magnetic Hall Effect sensors provide precise clutch and handbrake control.
VelocityOne Race is available for pre-order today for $649.99 MSRP at www.turtlebeach.com and participating retailers worldwide and launches February 26, 2024.
