• Playseat F1 Red Bull Racing Game Simulator is your ticket to the next level of gaming experience

You could use a steering wheel console with its own pedals, but no matter how you go around it, strapping it on a kitchen table doesn’t do much in the way of realism. What you need, if you’re really after the virtual racing experience, is a racing seat simulator. And not just any seat simulator; it should be one that will not only give you the feel of real-world driving, but is also pretty damn cool. This is the F1 Red Bull Race Game Racing Simulator, or shall we say, your ticket to one of the best possible virtual racing experiences you’ll ever find.

Designed and built by Playseat in collaboration with Red Bull Racing,, the F1 seat was made to take motor sport gaming to a whole new level. It’s a patented racing seat that was built to give the gamer the feeling of sitting in a real cockpit. It has a fully-adjustable Black coated steel framework, a seat that has been upholstered with high-quality leather that’s complemented by black vinyl and a red double stitching design with a matching G27 gearshift support that’s also included.

According to Fernando Smit, the founder of Playseat, the Red Bull Race Game Simulator is the next step in taking realism of virtual racing to new heights. “The time that people raced, perched on a kitchen chair with a racing wheel clamped to the table, have been gone for some time now,” he said.

“But the new Playseat formula takes virtual racing to a completely new level. The interaction with the racing game is unrivaled. The user feels every bump in the road surface. People will experience the race as if they are real racing drivers.”

The simulator is compatible with a number of game consoles, including Playstation2, Playstation3, Xbox, Xbox 360, Wii, and PC and sells for 949 Euros, which is about $1,300 based on current exchange rates.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

Is this one a must have? Not. It is likely going to be expensive that even the game geeks won’t buy it. They should have just made a simpler system that can be easily used.

Tsk, another one of those expensive contraptions that only does one thing. Why can’t they just stick with the good old game controller for this one.

Considering the expected price tag on this thing, it would definitely be much better to stick with chair and steering wheel on table setup. Heck, I could probably buy another PS3 and a dozen other games with the money I will be using on this one.

Well now, this is definitely one sweet looking toy. Now, you only need to to get three high def flat screen TV’s to complete the whole experience. Time to break your gy banks kids.

Wow! that’s pretty amazing! I think it has the same concept with "arcade car racing" but here you can plug-in it into your PSP or xbox!I’m just wondering what’s better regular or this one?
