    Let's put the blame in the right part of the court here. It wouldn't be Fanatec making you buy a wheel specifically compatible with the PS4, it would be Sony making Fanatec release a PS4 licensed wheel (for you to buy or not buy, they are not making you do anything) after refusing to play ball with a licensed hub like Fanatec use for the XBone.

    This is almost as bad as the stupid licensing issue with sims and cars/tracks (when they get not only FREE advertising but some cash to boot, greedy sods). I bought a CSR because it worked not only on my PC but XB360 for Forza 3 and PS3 for GT5, do these spud wits think people are made of money to buy 3 wheels? Bottom line is they've shot themselves in the foot because there's no way in hell I'm getting a XBONE and PS4, especially since PCARS and AC have got the quality graphics and the proper simulation of older PC games.

    Well, the way to battle back against Sony is to not buy their hardware. Move to XB1 or PC. i.e. fight with your money. If not, deal with whatever Sony requires and move on.

    Agree. Still hurts small fish like Fanatec.

    They don't want you to buy three wheels, they want to lock you in to their platform

    Well, to be fair, you'd only be giving your money to Microsoft, who also requires that you use "licensed" hardware. There really is no escape.

    What sucks about the Sony situation is that they allowed it for so long, only to change direction.

    They all (consoles) dictate the way hardware can be supported. However, at least M$ hasn't changed direction in the middle of a generation. At some point, people have to vote/support with their money for the lesser evil or it will just keep happening.

    I will say, I doubt there are enough people wanting to use older Fanatec hardware on a PS4 to make a dent though..

    I know, but it had the opposite effect for me as this is the first generation of consoles I havn't bought since I started with the SNES and Megadrive. They can shove it up where the sun don't shine!

    Been away for awhile because of real life interfering but when I bought the Fanatec CSW stuff, I already made up my mind to go PC. Even though I bought the PS4 just before that. I am renovating my house so the rig in in storage but I will get a copy of PC2 and it is not going to be for PS4 ;-) The rig was in the livingroom and it cannot return there. Have to make room elswhere and that is not easy when your house is full of other 'stuff'. I am a Mac guy so I still have to get a PC fit for PC2.
    PS4 - Rseat RS1 with red chair - Main: CSW v2 - 918 Rim - F1 Rim - CSP v3 + BK - CSS SQ v1.5. Spare: Logitech G29 with shifter - PCars Dash - NB3LED Button Box.

    the new CSL Elite is compatible with all three platforms, albeit with a wheel swap for the Xbone
