GT Omega Racing simulator rig - £390

Racing games are no longer simple, pixelated approximations of driving – they are seriously realistic. The most advanced driving games simulate everything down to suspension stiffness and tyre deformation. So using a handheld controller isn’t much good if you want the true experience.

A wheel with Force Feedback lets you feel the virtual potholes in the road, but what’s really needed is a rig like this, which provides a realistic driving position and seat. This one costs £390 before you add a wheel, games console and TV screen. All in, a good set up with everything needed will set you back around £1000.
