Compatible with PS3 and PC

The PC drivers required to operate the T500RS racing wheel on PC are available for free download on our technical support website.

Sony PlayStation4 compatibility:

This decision is upon each game developer and will therefore vary from racing game to racing game.
In the event of upward compatibility with PS4 racing games, the T500 RS racing wheel will only be recognized in the game, and not in the console’s menus. Please note that the “SHARE” and “PS” functions will not work on the wheel in PS4 racing games. Nevertheless you can still use your gamepad for these 2 specific functions.
