The upcoming Racing Wheel Apex (RWA) racing wheel by Hori, compatible with the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC, will be available to purchase on November 21.
Priced at just £79.99, the officially licensed Sony product features a range of rotation between 180-270 degrees and the sensitively of the foot pedals can be adjusted too to suit your style. A neat feature is the retractable foot rest to ensure no “slipping and sliding”.
At this price point though don't expect any force feedback of any kind, indeed this product will no doubt compete against Thrustmaster's own budget T80 racing wheel which is also compatible with the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PC platforms.
It's surprisingly then when you factor in the low cost, that the racing wheel itself looks head and shoulders above the T80 in terms of looks. Although it's hard to tell from pictures, the wheel does give a sturdy and well built appearance which makes the T80 look like a toy in comparison.
If you are looking to dip your toes in to the racing wheel market for the first time and don't care about force feedback than this may just be what you need. You can view the technical specs below.
