So many buttons: SteelSeries' new PC Racing controller


11:00 PM on 11.17.2011



If you're a fan of high-end PC racing simulations you probably scoff at us poor serfs with our DualShock controllers and Need for Speed: The Run. But maybe you're not too keen on a cumbersome steering wheel and foot petal setup on your desk. Well then, the Danish peripheral manufacturers at SteelSeries have something that's a little more up your alley: the SRW-S1 Steering Wheel.

The SRW-S1 is a hybrid controller that aims to combine the functionality of a high-end wheel with the convenience of a gamepad. In addition to motion controlled turning, the SRW-S1 features a lot of other buttons. Come on, look at this thing. Among the intimidating configuration of dials and d-pads are throttle and brake paddles that apparently help create an authentic experience without the use of floor pedals.

While it was specifically designed with Ignite Technology's Simraceway in mind, the device should be compatible with all major PC releases. And if they're not you'll just have to customize them until they do. So if you're interested just head over to the SteelSeries online store and fork over the $119.99 that this thing costs. Yeah, I think I'll just dig that old Sega Saturn wheel out of my closet and fire up a game of Daytona USA instead.
