An Amazing Racing Game Cockpit
OpenWheeler - a low-priced game seat simulator for GT game maniacs.
Compatible with PlayStation™, Xbox™, Wii™ & PC/MAC.
GT racing is a tough motor sport for both driver and machinery. Great test for man's body and mind, for car's strength and performance. Some races last for 24 hours. A very long time when the slightest mistake can ruin the hard work of many. Drivers need optimal body position and the best possible comfort in their cockpits. A clockwork settings to the very last detail.
It might not be as real we all want, but GT video game racing simulation can be as thrilling and hard as the real race. There is no compromising with driver's comfort and game controls. Playing with normal game controller from the sofa is not an option. Having the steering wheel attached to the top of the coffee table, as well. No matter how good and expensive the wheel is, the table is simply not a solution, not even a temporary one. Especially when the game is really good.
Games like Gran Turismo are simply the only way of getting closer to the challenging world of GT motor sport racing. But in order to experience the real racing characteristics, a complete racing simulation needs to be established.
OpenWheeler gaming chair together with Logitech GT Driving Force are a simple but very effective home racing simulation solution. With the cockpit's seat been taken out of a real racing car (not literally, but seat was originally designed and made for racing cars) and the wheel been the official Gran Turismo steering control, are the right choice for completing the perfect GT cockpit. And this is when and how gamers become drivers.
OpenWheeler's cockpit can even be used as a training instrument. The skills drivers acquire can be priceless in real road situations. The is game seat for any racing game, from GT to a full Formula One Championship season.
GranTurismo is the ultimate racing simulation. An indisputable fact. No other video racing game offers better game engine and overall driving experience. Every new editions is better than the previous. The game evolves all the time. Features like Data Logger Visualization Technology, are introducing more and more realism into this already tremendous game engine.
There is only two more steps to completing the best driving simulation. The right steering wheel and a racing seat cockpit simulator.
Finding the right wheel for GT5 is not that much of a problem, because the game only runs on PlayStation3. Gamers only need to search for whats most compatible. Logitech delivers great choice of steering wheels which are 100% compatible with PS3. Everything from £30 up to £370. But there is one particular model that features everything needed for proper race simulation. Force feedback effect, 900 degree rotation angle, gear changing buttons on the back of the wheel and what is greatest - a special GT5 button for real time car settings adjustments during race. Logitech Driving Force GT, on the price of under £100, this wheel is the best GT5 steering solution. All drivers need on a very reasonable price indeed.
Every game will admit that steering wheel is a compulsory accessory for any above average driving game. The standard controller will never deliver the effects and car response, so needed for simulating a real race. The true potential of GT5 game engine will never be unleashed without the wheel’s hardware features.
But what some are still trying to deny in the necessary requirement for a race seat cockpit as well. Because all the brilliance of the game and steering wheel are just not fully “seen” without the stability and comfort of the racing seat simulator. Some are driving form their coffee table, others are moving furniture in front of the telly, gathering chairs, desks and other household appliances around in order to get the wheel fixed, the pedals supported etc, etc. These are all a very very unnecessary operations. There is only one right way of doing it - a racing seat cockpit.
This is the only way of getting close to real life driving. Body, arms and legs positions are in perfect harmony. There is nothing disturbing drivers attention. Comfort and stability and perfect driving. Nothing else. OpenWheeler is all this. A racing cockpit simulator designed around and specifically games like GranTurismo. With its total steering wheel support, games can install any system onto it. Depending on their platform and games choice OpenWheeler can become the racing seat of whatever car they like. Anything form little Ford Fiesta, thought Bugatti Veyron or a FormulaOne cockpit.
