Is the Podium Racing Wheel Formula compatible with PS Systems?
No, this racing wheel is not compatible with your PS4 or PS5 Console, and cannot be upgraded to achieve compatibility. it’s just native compatible with Xbox systems and your persona computer.
Ultimate simracing experience with the Direct Drive technology this racing wheel has, what think you have to be aware of is, the compatibility with new coming PS5 and the current PS4. There is not, you can’t use this product with any PlayStation® console and cannot be upgraded to achieve compatibility.
Beyond that, the combination with the ClubSport Steering Wheel Formula V2 and Podium Advanced Paddle Module is very good, Two very good products that complement very well with the DD1 Base, well mention if you buy all three product separately you will need to pay 100$ more. not seems a lot of money but it’s.
At the end for what type of racer is this product for? I think was create for professionals racers in mind, but can be used as well for anyone in the transition state from the Clubsport series to the Podium series.
