Thrustmaster today introduced its Ferrari Wireless GT Cockpit 430 Scuderia Edition gaming controller cockpit for PCs and the PS3. The 11-inch steering wheel is a smaller scale replica of that found in the lightweight F430 Scuderia supercar, and includes the 5-position Manettino dial that can change the car's performance characteristics during a race. Metal gearshift paddles and a rubber textured grip of the wheel are more authentic touches. The brake pedal has magnetic resistance for a more realistic feel as well.
