Automotive simulators for home video-game consoles like the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 have become extremely sophisticated. In fact, the digital interface of Nissan’s GT-R sports car was designed with the help of racing game architects.

Get your racing game enthusiasts to the next level with a steering wheel and pedal set for their console and help them turn their couch into a cockpit.

Though several brands sell such devices, the most impressive offering seems to be from Fanatac, a German company that replicates Porsche and other car designs in their products, which start at around $200.
