Following up on the success of the launch of the Thrustmaster Force Feedback TX Racing Wheel, Thrustmaster is expanding its range of officially-licensed Xbox One products with the launch of a new wheel; the Ferrari 458 Spider Racing Wheel. Featuring an official license from Ferrari as well, this replica wheel will allow even more gamers to experience the joys of racing on Xbox One.

Creating the passionate racing game drivers of tomorrow
With the Ferrari 458 Spider, Thrustmaster is making it possible for everyone to have a realistic wheel to use in racing games on Xbox One, allowing gamers to experience an unrivaled driving experience, and all of the fun and excitement racing games provide, without the need to invest time to master a Force Feedback wheel. This was an ambitous choice, but one which Thrustmaster’s development teams accomplished with absolute success, thanks to their experience and expertise in creating the Ferrari 458 Italia wheel for Xbox 360. The Ferrari 458 Spider’s ease of use, high-performance onboard technologies and aggressive pricing mean that great things are expected from this latest release from Thrustmaster.

All options are standard!
This new wheel release offers features that are not only simple to use, but also original and effective. Thrustmaster has incorporated simplicity and ease of use into this 7/10 scale replica (at 11 inches/28 cm in diameter) of the wheel on the real Ferrari 458 Spider car with all gamers in mind. The first thing any user will notice is that this is a “sports-type” wheel – GT-style. What will really catch the eye is the sleek look of the wheel, thanks to its red, textured rubber Ferrari grip. Two wheel-mounted Up and Down sequential paddle shifters, crafted of metal, add to the product’s sporty look and design.

There aren’t many options with the Ferrari 458 Spider Racing Wheel, but that’s simply because everything that you could want already comes standard on the wheel! The wheel features nine action buttons (including “View” and “Menu” buttons), a two-position manettino dial, an ENGINE START D-pad and an Xbox Guide button. “Under the hood”, the wheel incorporates the Thrustmaster bungee cord mechanism, Thrustmaster’s patented wheel recentering system – delivering realistic linear resistance, no matter how far the wheel is turned. Featuring 240° of rotation, this system allows you to take the most efficient line on the track.

Designed to adapt to the driver
The Ferrari 458 Spider also lets users customize their wheel, which can always be adapted to meet the driver’s needs. The wheel’s steering sensitivity can be adjusted, and includes four presets – allowing users to optimize the wheel’s performance according to the type of track, the car being driven or their preferred driving styles. The pedal set, which incorporates a large foot rest, features pedals whose angle of inclination can be adjusted, and a brake pedal with progressive resistance.
Finally, the wheel includes a controller pairing LED for Kinect, along with a central clamping system which easily adapts to any type of support surface.

The Ferrari 458 Spider Racing Wheel will be available from April 18, 2014, at a suggested retail price of $99.99.

Konami has just announced their World Challenge DLC, an all-new mode for Pro Evolution Soccer 2014. Check out the press release below.

PES 2014: World Challenge DLC Warms Up
New Trailer Showcases New World Challenge which is Coming Later this Month

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. has announced new DLC content for PES 2014, with an all-new World Challenge mode featuring a new International Cup.

The new content is available for Xbox 360 and the PlayStation®3 system, and integrates an all-new International Cup competition into PES 2014. The mode charges the user with guiding their international team or player to glory in the International Cup competition. In ‘Team’ mode, the user governs every aspect of play, from team selection, to choosing offensive and defensive tactics, while ‘Player’ mode sees the player striving to earn selection and retain their place via their performances in a game.

The World Challenge mode runs the full gamut of a top-level competition, from qualifying rounds, through to the main tournament. Within the mode, players can adapt their squads in the run up to qualification, set up friendly matches to recruit new talent, and finally enter the group and knock out stages of the tournament. The mode features separate qualification competitions for European, African, American and Asian sides, with a set number from each continent allocated spaces.

The DLC features entirely new presentation and front-end elements, with options to view squad details down to the finest detail, while new AI elements see players responding to strong performances and raising their game, or suffering a crisis of confidence which can affect their playing levels. New cut scenes have also been added, presenting final squad selection once gamers qualify for the International Cup, following a successful regional qualification round. World Challenge mode also includes the official Brazilian national team and player likeness.

As part of the continued support of PES 2014, a free DLC and patch will be available on the same day, updating a whole host of features. It will update nine International team kits such as Italy, Portugal and Greece, as well as implementing 11 new boots from Nike, adidas, Puma and Umbro. Also included are over 60 player face updates and additions, with lifelike representations of England's Jack Wilshere, Spain's David Silva and Gerard Pique, and Germany's Mario Götze and Marco Reus. The new adidas Brazuca ball will also be added.

The patch will improve gameplay for a smoother experience, while bringing in new anti-cheating measures for online play, as well as the ability to select the World Challenge mode (purchase required to access).

World Challenge Mode will be available to download on March 26 via Xbox LIVE®, and April 1 via PlayStation®Network, priced at $4.99 with free DLC and patch released at same time.
