So what’s the PS4 Wheel Edition?

PS4 Wheel Edition

The all new PS4 Wheel Edition is a brand new system for Logitech G25 and G27 racing wheels on the PS4 console using the CronusMAX PLUS.

The wheel is now detected by the game as an actual wheel and not a gamepad (specifically a Logitech G29 Wheel), giving tight, smooth, precise control and for the first time ever…..FULL FORCE FEEDBACK SUPPORT! Also includes full support for Gas, Brake and Clutch pedals and 6 Speed Shifter.

The Force Feedback feature is absolutely stunning. Feel your tires on every turn and type of terrain, sense under and oversteer drifting and more. With the PS4 Wheel Edition, you are also no longer required to have your computer connected to the console at all times!

You will never want to race with a regular controller again.

Recommended PS4 Games:

  • Project CARS
  • Drive Club
  • F1 2015
  • Dirt Rally
  • WRC 5: FIA World Rally Championship

How does it work?

It’s really very simple. You connect the two controllers to a compatible USB hub, plug in the USB Hub’s cable into the CronusMAX PLUS and then plug the CronusMAX PLUS into the console. Yup – that’s it.

The CronusMAX PLUS is in PS4 Wheel Edition Mode and waiting for the USB Hub & Controllers….


The controller is authenticated and you’re ready to race!


Then simply connect a DualShock 4 controller (via micro USB cable) and the Logitech G25/G27 racing Wheel to the USB Hub as per the instructions, then connect the USB Hub to the CronusMAX PLUS.

When you power cycle the PS4, the controller will automatically authenticate – the LED on the CronusMAX PLUS will change to 0, the wheel will calibrate itself – then you just sit back and race!

What about the Xbox One Elite Controller Paddle Support?

Xbox One Elite Controller Support inc Paddle Scripting

This is another much requested feature from our community. Normally you would have to use the Xbox One console, or the Xbox One App from the Windows Store to setup the paddles on your Elite controller. Not any more! You can now map your paddles using our own GPC scripting engine straight out of the box without the need to use any other tools or complicated setups.

Not only can you map your paddles to any buttons, triggers or analog sticks, but you can also map them to combos, macros or mods – the possibilities are endless!

Yet another incredible release from CronusMAX, None of this would be possible without your continued support and loyalty to our product. We also have some great GamePacks in the pipeline, and our team of engineers are working on some really exciting new products ready for this Holiday Season and 2017.
