Flight simulators are likely to be in quite popular demand on PlayStation VR, with two titles already confirmed for the head-mounted display (HMD). Gaijin Entertainment were quick to jump on-board with the popular free-to-play War Thunder announcing support for the device early on, while Bandai Namco Games’ Ace Combat 7 has also been confirmed for PlayStation VR, but it yet to deliver information on how deep the support will run. Either way, to get the most out of your virtual reality (VR) flight experience you’ll need a Flight Control Stick.
Sadly, at present your options for investment in a PlayStation 4 compatible Flight Control Stick are decidedly limited. That being said, the quality of the singular offering available is pleasing high – but so too is that price tag.
Thrustmaster T.Flight Hotas 4 Flight Stick
The one and only Flight Control Stick officially endorsed by Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) for PlayStation 4 is the Thrustmaster T.Flight Hotas 4 Flight Stick. The device features adjustable stick resistance, real-size detachable throttle, dual rudder system and built-in PlayStation 4/PC sliding switch. Furthermore, the Thrustmaster T.Flight Hotas 4 Flight Stick is brought to market specifically with the aforementioned War Thunder in mind, offering newcomers to the videogame a number of bonus items through the War Thunder Starter Pack included free.
Thrustmaster TFRP Flight Rudder Pedals
Not put off buy the cost of the Thrustmaster T.Flight Hotas 4 Flight Stick? Want to go deeper still? Look no further than the Thrustmaster TFRP Flight Rudder Pedals. Built to be compatible with the Thrustmaster T.Flight Hotas 4 Flight Stick on PlayStation 4 (and also for PC), the Thrustmaster TFRP Flight Rudder Pedals are the first to feature the S.M.A.R.T slide rails system for smooth steering. The ergonomic design allows you to put your entire foot on the pedal thanks to the heel-rests which are removable, for alternative ergonomic configurations. An additional system of four slide rails crafted of industrial-grade aluminium offer smooth sliding motion with a self-centring rudder axis for adjustable balance between smoothness and resistance.
