Sony: New racing wheel peripheral has "double the accuracy of a DualShock"

Directional rumble too.

Update: Sony has confirmed to us that the PlayStation Move Racing Wheel is coming to Europe, though no release date or price has been announced.

Original Story: The PlayStation Move Racing Wheel peripheral for PS3 will have "basically double the accuracy of a DualShock," Sony has announced.

This information comes from the US PlayStation Blog, where SCEA research and development engineer Anton Mikhailov detailed the bizarre spaceship-shaped controller in the video below.

Each handle has a "DualShock-style motor" for directional rumble. The Move itself can also vibrate for various degrees of sensory feedback. Since the device is powered entirely by the Move, it won't require any additional batteries.

For motorcycle-based games, the grips expand until the whole thing resembles motorcycle handlebars. The right grip has a twist throttle in it working in tandem with the rumble.

In addition to racing games, Sony explains the contraption's added precision would make a nice fit for flying games too.

Titles that support the peripheral include the upcoming LittleBigPlanet Karting, Gran Turismo 5 and MotorStorm Apocalypse.

The PlayStation Move Racing Wheel is coming this autumn to North America where it will retail for $39.99 . No European release has been announced.
