    well, its nothing special accutaly, it just gives you more of a feel to driving, it can be used with any racing game that used the hold sideways tilt thing, its just a thing that helps you expenience the game better and will be shipped with that monster 4x4 games and gt pro racing

    Anyone else thinking we're gonna get flooded with molded plastic attachments to house the wiimote. Maybe a tennis racket, golf club or plastic sword :p

    Here's another pic of it:

    (click to enlarge)
    gt-pro-series-20060908114551109.jpg

    It almost looks like it's made out of foam tubing from that pic, but maybe that would make it more comfortable.

    While I'm glad it comes with the game, I'm afraid like you guys are, that now were gonna see tons of these cheaply-made shells, but I bet as time goes by, they'll add things like extra rumble packs, extra buttons (like Turbo, Macro, etc) and they'll get more and more ergonomic.

    Looking at the game itself, it reminds me of a game called Auto Modellista, which I heard was a good looking but terrible playing game.

    Here's some pics to compare:

    GT Pro Series

    I'm sure this game will have MUCH better controls and I think it does the whole cel-shaded style better than Auto Modellista, aswell.

    That looks sick, but why would UBISOFT make hardware? I dont think they have. Yes, it says thrustmaster which makes sense.. but ubisoft? And i dont no if im being very negative or anything but when u look at the picture closely, the inside edges of the place where u slot the wiimote look a bit 'fake'. I dunno, still i reckon it is real besides all that and dont ask me why.

    perhaps its a mock up, which is most likley, its not really hardware, its just a holder to give you a better driving experience

    Basically thats what the design of the Wii-mote is supposed to do, make it possible for developers to create cheap attachments since no wireing is really needed, hopefully we don't get saturated with a bunch of junk though I think as long as they are included for no extra cost and you can still play without having to use the attachment then it shouldn't matter, maybe developers should offer the game with and without the special attachments for people who don't want it, or like a mail-away card for registration and you get the attachment returned if you want it.

    I want something to keep the wheel firm rather than holding it, whats at the bottom of that? I think i'll wait for the official Nintendo one.

    Erm, it's got UK under his avatar.

    Hope it doesn't flood the console with unneccessary plastic attachments like iOn said. Although I do like the idea of a wireless steering wheel... Wasn't Sonic meant to be using that kind of control as well? Would that mean that you could drive Sonic? :idea: :ihih:
