On your marks get set and go! Calling all fans of racing
games, Xbox 360 has a surprise for you. On July 22nd Microsoft
confirmed that they have a wireless speed wheel in the works. The price of the
wheel will be around $45, a lot cheaper than what we would
expect. The thing about this wireless wheel is its relationship to Kinect. Would it make sense
for you to go out and buy a wireless wheel when Kinect should allow you to steer with just your hands? It appears Microsoft has gone the same route as
Nintendo, releasing a wheel peripheral that should (in theory) be unnecessary along with an anticipated racing game.
The usually innovative Mircosoft may hit the dumps with
this new wheel. I mean think about it; Kinect was made in order to play games
hands free - seperating it from the motion control of the Wii. First they want to be
different, and now following in the footsteps of the Wii wheel? Not a good look for Microsoft.
This new wireless speed is coming to a store near you alongside the release of Forza Motorsport 4 on October 14th, 2011.
