I've been searching for a new wheel now for a while to replace my old but trusty G25 which is still going strong and came across Thrustmasters new offering to the market, the TS-XW Racer which apparently is due to be released on the 14th September, so today, I believe it is going to retail at £699.99 (not too sure about other currencies) and as far as I am aware at this stage, this wheel ships with the well known T3PA pedal set which includes the conical brake mod. As far as I can tell so and from what I've read and seen review wise, it is pretty much the same wheel as the TS-PC Racer but it's now compatible with the Xbox One, presumably to take advantage of the likes of Forza Motorsport 7 and pCARS2 which are due out on the various platforms soon. My questions are as follows, has anyone pre-ordered/ordered one of these yet, if so why and also those of you who currently own the TS-PC Racer and have previously owned the likes of a Logitech G25 or G27, how does it compare? I'd love to go the Fanatec route but I'm looking at £1500+ to do it properly, the other option is Direct Drive, the units are becoming more reasonable in cost with some now coming in at just under £1000. I'm just finding that replacing my G25 is turning into a somewhat difficult choice. I would like a vast upgrade as I know technology has moved on a long long way since the G25 was released which is when I got mine. Are there any other options I could or should consider, I guess budget wise I'd like to stay somewhere inside £500-£600, however for a massive upgrade in every way I could be persuaded to spend a little more. In a nut shell I'm at a bit of a loss at the moment, there just seems so much choice, manufacturers are churning out wheel after wheel after wheel and not really making many changes or progress for the increase in which they are asking in terms of the cost. This might have been a bit of a heads up to those of you who haven't seen the details of this new Thrustmaster wheel yet (but probably not) and it's something I'm considering to be the upgrade from my G25 based on the fact that I could also use it on my Xbox One occasionally but predominantly and mostly on my PC. Anyhow any advise, information, personal experience anyone can throw my way to help my decision a little more would be greatly appreciated...I could go on using my G25 for months possibly years depending on how long it lasts out but I know there is better out there now and I want to make a change to something newer and better.
