A nifty peripheral for racing games has quietly emerged from Sony's Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) conference.
Hidden among the other Sony announcements at E3 2012, the PlayStation blog detailed an upcoming PlayStation Move racing wheel accessory set for debut on the PlayStation 3 soon.
While the wheel looks somewhat unusual, it actually boasts a few not-so-obvious features that make it worth looking at. For starters, the left and right grip normally sit downwards for normal car racing, but it can also fold forward, allowing the user to twist the stalks like a motorcycle throttle. The racing wheel, which serves as a dock for the PlayStation Move controller, also includes vibration feedback and paddle shifters.
Supported games include "Little Big Planet Karting, Gran Turismo 5, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, BurnOut Paradise, MotorStorm Apocalypse and more," according to a Sony representative.
