Official GT5 Steering Wheel: Thrustmaster T500RS Not Logitech

Even before Gran Turismo 5 was released we have been wondering what will be the official steering wheel for the game. Well the recent v1.02 update might have just answered that question for us; the Thrustmaster T500 RS. The thing that has surprised fans of the franchise the most is the fact that Logitech did not get the nod from Sony or Polyphony Digital.

The reason why gamers have been coming to the assumption that the Thrustmaster T500 RS is the official steering wheel is because it now shows in the game’s setting, that’s according to a GTPlanet forum member. Some of features of this new wheel include built-in H.E.A.R.T (HallEffect AccuRate Technology).

Not much else is known about the new wheel, but one would assume that Logitech will be baffled if this did turn out to be true. The reason for this is because the Logitech Driving Force GT has had the GT logo on the device since 2008 — this would be a stab in the back for the device then.

I have never been one for these steering wheels, not unless it is a complete set-up with seat and TV mount as well — much like those I saw at Euro Gamer 2010.
