Question About The Fanatec CSW.

Discussion in 'Sim Racing Hardware' started by thomascats, Jan 20, 2013.

  1. Hello,
    I want to by the Fanatec CSW Wheel with formula rim in the next three months.
    I have a PC, But also a Xbox360, So, the wheel in not compatible with it.
    There is any chance that it would work. - I do not care about the display and the leds, just the Axes.

    Thanks,
    Thomas.
     
  2. Xbox 360 will never work you want the elite if so. However 360 is a dying console. New version of it and ps4 will be announced this year
     
  3. Thanks for the replay.
    There is a chance that the new platform will support?
    What prevent from the Xbox support the well?

    Thanks.
     
  4. Xbox 360 use a XID interface I believe. and PS3 HID. XID work with more canned ffb effects.
    I believe you need a chip to make it compatible and also pay some license fee to Microsoft.

    I have no clue about how MS will go about it with the next version. Always a chance until proven otherwise. I am not to impressed with Forza nor GT and I doubt they will ever go for a more hardcore approach so personally I don´t care much about them :).
     
  5. If we're lucky they will quit the proprietary crap, and switch to a standard USB connection like the PS3 and PC
