Sony Set To Release Move-Compatible PS3 Racing Wheel

THE BUZZ: As part of the Destination PlayStation announcements, word has come out that Sony is working on a Move-compatible racing wheel.

EGM’s TAKE: As revealed by Future Shop’s Twitter feed (man, they’ve been very chatty lately haven’t they), we now know that Sony is working on some sort of racing wheel which will be powered by the PlayStation Move controller, and which will not only be “3D capable” (whatever that means), but also fully supported by the also-just-announced LittleBigPlanet Cart Racing game.

And—that’s about all we know at this point. What kind of racing wheel will this be? Given that it’s somehow Move-related, will it basically be a plastic case ala Nintendo’s Wii Remote-powered racing wheel? Or will this be a more fully-featured peripheral?

In the pic below, you can see CTA Digital’s Racing Wheel With Stand, which itself is Move-powered. Could Sony’s device be similar to this, or will it indeed be less complex like Nintendo’s effort?

What do you think? Do you have any interest in a Move-powered racing wheel for the PS3? What kind of design do you think it would be?
