If you have 700 euros left over, you have what it takes for Gran Turismo DD Pro, the first officially licensed PS5 steering wheel

If Microsoft already has the latest installment of its flagship racing game ( Forza Horizon 5 ), Sony has its replica almost ready. Because Gran Turismo 7 is just around the corner as its date is set for March 7, 2022 , both on the new PS5 and on the veteran PS4, which refuses to die.

Logically, for an event of this caliber (Polyphony Digital has to come back after not satisfying everyone with Gran Turismo Sport , despite its clear commitment to eSports) a new officially licensed steering wheel was needed to debut on PS5 . And it comes to us from the Fanatec house. Your name? Grand Touring DD Pro . And beware, your reservation is activated tomorrow from 699.95 euros .

As can be seen from its official website or the trailer above, this is a steering wheel with Direct Drive technology to guarantee the most dynamic and smoothest force feedback on the market. Or at least that is what its creators claim. In addition, they have collaborated with Polyphony Digital for its design…

Much has happened since Gran Turismo 3 implemented precisely the force feedback technology (2001, to be exact), being two decades later before its evolution thanks to the aforementioned Direct Drive, with much more professional features. Without going any further, its engine has been developed in Germany specifically for driving simulators and with FluxBarrier technology.

All this translated into a clearer language means that there will be more precision, a greater sense of realism and where any minimum detail will be noticed much more clearly. Apart from that it has been designed so that its use is comfortable without the response being affected with each turn.

Fanatec has announced several editions of this wheel, starting from the basic model (699.95 euros) with a torque of 5 Nm, a wheel, the Direct Drive base, two pedals and the relevant connections; shooting up to 849.95 euros if we want a torque of 8 Nm (with larger power). There will even be a Premium bundle with an additional pedal and other extras for 969.85 euros. All with reservation from November 26 and with a launch scheduled for March 2022, the month in which this Gran Turismo 7 will be released on the market .

And what about compatibility? Its creators make it clear that it will be compatible with PS5 and PS4, apart from many racing video games published on PC.
