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.


The T500 RS is stuffed full of features that will make a driving sim nut squeal—force feedback driven by a 60W motor, a wheel capable of 1080 degrees of turning, and all-metal pedal construction. The whole set weighs over 25 pounds. Sounds pretty sturdy to us. And for $600, it sure as hell better be. You'll be glad on those days you don't quite beat your best lap time—those of us who take our rage out on our controllers always appreciate a rugged build. [Thrustmaster]
