Racing Wheels for PS5/Series X

I’m looking for a solid racing wheel but I want to be able to use it on both my PS5 and Series X.

I found something from a company called Creative Minds called the Drive Hub but it doesn’t seem to work with PS5.

Anyone have any solutions or a wheel that would work? I want force feedback so I know it won’t be cheap.

Thanks!

    How much you wanna spend?

    Fanatec has a few options that might work, this one is advertised as PS/PC/“Xbox Ready”

    I was thinking you'd have to look at a Fanatec as well, but I don't think that particular combo is Xbox capable out of the box.

    Fanatic has a dedicated page explaining their compatibility. TL;DR is that the Sony support is in the base, and the Microsoft support is in the wheel. So you need to get a specific combo of wheel base + wheel to get compatibility.

    Damn, not that much that’s for sure. Woof! I’ll just get one for the PS5 so I can play Gran Turismo.

    the wheel market has gone stupid and enthusiast scene has taken off.

    logitech g29 is probably the cheapest wheel you can get that wont disintegrate after plugging it in...

    you might be able to find a thrustmaster at this price point too.... but i doubt you'll find anything cross platform

    The thrustmaster 248 is the direct competition to the G29 though the wheel itself is not as nice as the G29, the pedals it comes with are much nicer.

    However: I think there isn't a wheel that is both Ps5 and XSX compatible. That's why there is a G29 and a G920 from Logitech.

    Why would you put wheels on an Xbox? Just pick it up bro.

    I have that G920 and I think it’s a great wheel and the pedals feel fantastic. However, there seems to be a problem when using it with Forza Horizon Games. In that If you are in Automatic you can’t reverse. Holding down the brake stops you and it never changes to reverse. The only way I’ve found to go into reverse is when I’m using manual and I shift to reverse. It’s not the pedals because even when I switch the controls for reverse to be a button on the wheel I can’t go in reverse. This happens on both the PC and Xbox Series X, but only when this wheel is connected. It detects the wheel perfectly, but reverse in automatic just doesn’t exist. It works fine in the Crew and any other racing game I tried, but Forza Horizon 4&5 both at this way. Anyone else have this wheel and experience this issue? I know about the attachment in the pedals that makes it harder to press down. I plan on removing that… but it doesn’t keep it from working in the Crew, that reverses just fine. Forza Horizon is the only game that does this - across PC and Xbox.

    As per tradition Microsoft are robbers when it comes anything for their consoles. So generally gear that works with their consoles has to be special which mean it doesn't work with anything else, by contrast Sony allows you to use industry standard gear so fx. most wheels working with a PC also works with a PlayStation. Rant over :)

    I think the best you can do is to pick a main platform and get a good wheel for that, then perhaps make due with a cheap one for the other platform. Only I would suggest making PlayStation that platform, since more than likely that wheel will also be good for PC and also when one day there is a PS6.
