Visually speaking, the products are very attractive: they all have a metallic finish that mixes shades of black and graphite, with some chrome parts to emphasize a contrast common to products made for games.
The flywheel itself is 10 inches in diameter and capable of 900 degrees (°) of rotation.
Strangely, though, the company has excluded the PlayStation 5 from the list of supported platforms — which may be a disappointment to anyone thinking about enjoying Gran Turismo 7 , slated for release on Sony's console on March 7, 2022. Xbox Series S/X , so the Forza franchise is more than assured.
In the past generation, all devices were contemplated by Monoprice: PlayStation 4 , Xbox One and Nintendo Switch , in addition, of course, to PC games .
At the fair, the company also unveiled a new mechanical keyboard and an aviation stick for high-fidelity simulators such as Flight Simulator . However, as well as the racing simulator kit, the company did not offer a launch forecast or price suggestion for any of them.
