After waiting so long for Gran Turismo 5, are you really going to use your dinky Dual Shock? A game with such great (insane?) attention to detail deserves an equally hardcore peripheral. Thrustmaster's new T500 RS looks like a contender.

If you need a bit more control in your games, the Thrustmaster Run'N'Drive 3 in 1 controller purports to give you just that. Featuring an optical wheel surrounding the left-hand d-pad, it gives you extra nuance in driving games and in situations like zooming with a sniper rifle in FPS games.
Joining the $30 Nyko Wiimote charging stand, this $24 Thrustmaster T-Charge NW gies you space enough to charge one controller and even comes with a silicone Wiimote protector. The protector is pretty useless unless you're one of those people who engage in extracurricular activities your wife, but the charger itself is…
