DriveClub Playstation Plus Edition was finally released after being delayed by more than a year (the special version of the videogame was initially slated to launch aside the PlayStation 4 in late 2013). The PS4 exclusive is considered one of the best-looking racing games in the genre. With that said, you won’t be fully immerse in the experience without a proper racing wheel.

Thrustmaster T80 RS
The cheapest option in terms of a widely-available natively-supported PS4 wheel and pedal sets is the Thrustmaster T80 RS. The wheel is made of leather for improved grip in addition to a bungee cord mechanism in order to provide four different levels of linear resistance. Last but not least, it has a directional-pad, paddle shifters in addition to 11 action buttons.
In terms of pedals, both are placed on a wide foot rest while the brake pedal also provides progressive resistance. You can also adjust the pedals.
With that said, the Thrustmaster T80 RS wheel can only be turned 240 degrees while there is no force feedback rumble. Still, you will get a lot of features for its price tag. If you are interested, you can buy the T80 RS on Amazon with this link.
