Well, it's official: https://www.fanatec.com/us-en/racing-wheels/podium-racing-wheel-f1-usa.html

It's the DD1 wheel (15Nm holding torque) as expected
Comes with the new F1 wheel (similar to recently announced) but with PS4 branding and colors
Only available with the F1 wheel; no bare base option (of course)
$1,500 for US market
Pre-order now, available May 2019

Officially, it's available Apr 30 2019, but mkay Fanatec :rolleyes: I suspect this is so they can say "April" of next year in press releases.

I'm so tired of Sony's garbage. I'm 100% convinced they're the reason this announcement took so long. If there's an upside, it looks like you'll be able to use Fanatec's other wheels with this base, because compatibility is in the base, not the wheel (unlike XB).
