Gran Turismo 5 Racing Wheel Teased

Gran Turismo 5 has been in development since the late 1970s, so you'd think the official racing wheel for the game would already be out on shelves. But it isn't. Thrustmaster today teased its upcoming, force-feedback racing wheel on its website. The T500RS is the official GT5 wheel, and it boasts "HallEffects Accurate Technology" and "16-bit resolution with 65,536 valves on the steering." I don't know what any of that means, but here's a number we all can understand: $500. That's the rumored price of the device, and that's without the optional H-shifter.

So, you can have the ultimate driving experience for a total of $600, give or take, once this device is released. Conversely, you can go on Craigslist and find an actual car for $600 and drive that around. Sure, it won't be a Lamborghini, but on the other hand, you can use it to go get a pint of milk or go to the movies or something.

I'm having a good time with a much cheaper Logitech wheel, but maybe I'll feel the need to pick this up once the official details are revealed at CES this year. What about you guys? Any interest?
