Best high end wheel for PS4, Xbox & PC

I see on fanatecís site they have a PS4, PC and XBOx ready but not sure what that means. Open to recommendations. Thank you.

Get the CSL Elite PS4 bundle that gets you the steering wheel base, a PS4 compatible steering wheel and the basic pedal assembly.

The base unit itself is compatible with all three, however a different steering wheel will be required for XBox. Not ideal, but better than needing a completely separate control system.

I just got mine today and after doing a very fast setup using all the defaults it is literally a night & day difference between it and my old Logitech Driving Force GT.

It literally went from feeling like I was playing a game to feeling like I was driving an actual car

Of course this is just their entry level model, so if you are truly looking for something high end they have many more options.

This is what I was considering.

So I can just snap on an Xbox steering wheel when needed?

Thank you all.

Yep, they are not cheap ($$$), but they also are not cheaply built.

Yeah it better than buying two totally different systems.

Bought all Fanatec for my new rig...pieces are amazing. The BMW GT2 wheel and 2.5 base is a great bundle.

+1 for Fanatec CSL elite

I bought the parts separately.

CSL base
BMW GT2 wheel, F1 Esports wheel
Elite pedals w/ Load cell.

Highly recommend the LC pedals. Whats nice is you can add the LC brake afterwards and its the same price.
