Two photos of Fanatec’s steering wheel for PS5 dedicated to Sony’s historic IP have just emerged on Reddit, Gran Turismo. We can hardly define ourselves as amazed at the idea of a peripheral for driving games, especially on consoles of the PlayStation family, but the leak still anticipates every official announcement.
According to the packaging, which we remember is the only one to be visible in the images leaked online, the official name of the steering wheel is the GT DD Pro. The specifications appearing on the scale also list PS4 among the supported platforms, in addition to the Sony’s new flagship console. However, there is a detail that the Reddit users certainly did not miss.
In the era of fake news and baseless rumors, in fact, Fanatec’s steering wheel for PS5 themed Gran Turismo stands out for how photogenic the packaging is… without the peripheral itself being visible in any shot. This omission was all that Reddit users needed to unleash it skepticism.
All comments mentioned the hypothesis of photomontage, and one of them noticed what we said at the beginning of the article. The steering wheels are in fact a very common type of peripheral, and according to the comment in question “at least one comes out for each console generationSo we would not be surprised if it were true.
It’s not even the first leak we’ve recently reported for Gran Turismo. Contributing to the great excitement for fans of the franchise, in fact, it has recently emerged that the episode for PS5 could be the protagonist of a open beta, and in that case the source was Sony’s official portal for the automotive saga.
In favor of the leak we also have the dual format of the game. In fact, we recall that we talked in our recent article about the arrival on PS5 and PS4 of God of War Ragnarok and, in fact, Gran Turismo 7. Let’s just hope that the waits are not excessively long, both for the (alleged) periphery and for the game itself.
The title has in fact been subject to a postponement recently, extending the time necessary for its release. We will not fail to update you in case of novelty.
