As you can see from the homepage of the Team VVV website, there's been quite a lot of Gran Turismo 6 news as of late: the game's full track list has been confirmed, and at least a majority of the cars have all been announced in the latest roster update.
Whilst they're fascinating and interesting in their own right, the devoted racing game fans we - and, presumably, quite a lot of you as well - are means we've one last question to ask: what are all the compatible racing wheels?
Thankfully,Gran Turismo developer Polyphony Digital has confirmed all of the peripherals that will be officially supported on Gran Turismo 6, and (as expected) you'll only need to invest in a new wheel for the most part if you're planning on upgrading from what you used to race on Gran Turismo 5 with.

The change in technical regulations was always going to be a challenge, even more so for the teams that are not directly working with other automotive brands or sales, both in developing technology, sharing resources or in generating additional income from that research. It's a changing face of motorsport and a shame that teams now seem more reliant on pay drivers than ever before. Let's hope...
We must help the Marussia sponsors by checking out Lets Race in Horley some time soon...!
Happy Chilton! Daddy paid up!
