The best-ever time sink is out again!
I'm a huge fan of the GT-series, have been that since the first Gran Turismo was published for PlayStation in 1997. Because the PSX doesn't support racing wheels, I played the game with a NeGcon-controller. Most of you have never heard of it, because it supported only PSX and was discontinued around the time when PS2 was released in year 2000. PS2 has USB-port, which made generic USB 1.1 wheels available to PlayStation/Gran Turismo -world too. NeGcon is one of the weirdest game controllers anybody has ever seen. Its like a normal game controller with swivel in the middle. Twisting the controller makes it possible to act as a steering wheel. It also had three analog buttons in it making throttle and break control reasonable accurate for race gaming.
Fast forward trough GTs 2-6 to GT Sport, which is the latest, best, brighest and first GT for a PS4. The controller I'm using on my PS4 Pro is a Logitech G29, but I'd definitely like to give my NeGcon a go, if the game would support it somehow. Now I'm wasting space for a Wheel Stand Pro, a NeGcon wouldn't require that!
Of course I have to put some miles to my GT Sport, so, not much happening here in my blogosphere.
