In yet another overwhelmingly short-sighted maneuver, Sony have required that PS4 dedicated racing titles developers no longer include support for Fanatec products. What?? Yep, remember the BetaMax, or the "$599 US Dollars" PS3 debacle? Well, they've done it again! Essentially, what Sony have done is to gather up a rather large portion of the already niche market of console sim-racers, corralled them and unceremoniously screwed them! In their inimitably myopic style, they seem to truly believe that sim-racers will go out and buy yet another >$350 toy wheel just to play their games on their platform. Really? The "we're too big to care/fail" attitude that leads them into thinking that those of us who did the research, spent the time, saved the money to buy our beloved Clubsport Wheel and Pedal set will just abandon it in favor of a $300 games console... Just wow! Another head-scratcher is why in the world would Sony want to wage an unnecessary war among constituents, thereby further alienating an already dubious segment? Did they stop getting emails from their marketing department? With Fanatec set to launch the undoubtedly Thrustmaster-killing new platform in the CSL, naturally aimed at the burgeoning console market, this just seems really stupid. In another ironic turn of events, it's perfect timing for two upcoming major launches. With Assetto Corsa and Gran Turismo Sport on the horizon, I think Sony are in for a rude awakening. When sales of GTS come in at 2/3 of projected market penetration, I wonder if Sony will wake up and smell the FAIL. I wonder if the payola Thrustmaster must have slipped them not to use their competitor's gear will offset the losses. I'm betting not. As for my former PS4? Well, that recouped $250 is going straight into my XBox Scorpio savings fund. This is JMHO and YMMV.
