This comes to us from the Fanatec website.  It looks liek the first stage of Xbox One Comaptible products are starting to come out of Fanatec.  With this wheel rim racers will be able to use their Clubsport V2 wheel base on the Xbox One.  It does however come at a pretty hefty price.

Here is the announcement from Fanatec


2.4.2015 - Fanatec is proud to announce the Universal Hub for Xbox One.
This controller takes modularity and realism to a whole new level.

This innovative device allows you choose between several styles of wheel rims to match your preferred racing category:
GT for supercars and road racing
Oval for NASCAR and similar series
Drift for rally, off-road and drift simulations
Classic for vintage race cars
Round1 for vintage open wheelers
Flat1 for modern open wheelers, F1, LMP1 or DTM seriesThese wheel rims have automotive quality and could be used in real race cars. They all are covered in genuine leather and come in different diameters.
But you can also purchase the Universal Hub for Xbox One without a wheel rim and use any wheel rim you want or already own. It is comparable to real car steering wheels from famous brands like SPARCO, MOMO or OMP.
With every Universal Hub for Xbox One, you have the option to configure the button layout to your preference and the position and angle of every button can also be adjusted. You can also take off some of the small button boxes without losing functionality as all buttons are also on top of the hub casing. You have the choice of two different sizes and styles of paddle shifters and even those are fully adjustable.
Just like many other Fanatec steering wheels, it also comes with a Tuning LED display (detachable) to show telemetry info or change wheel settings on the fly. It also comes with the genius 7-way FunkySwitch™ encoder.
The Universal Hub for Xbox One can be used on the ClubSport Wheel Base V1 and V2 and on upcoming wheel bases from Fanatec. As soon as you connect the Universal Hub for Xbox One, the base will be switched into Xbox One mode using force feedback protocol with the new and advanced equation system.
There is also a hot-key to use the Universal Hub for Xbox One on PC and other gaming platforms. It is the most compatible product on the market!
There are several more wheel bases at various price points planned to be released and there will also be another steering wheel for Xbox One to be announced later this year which will be targeted to a broader audience at a much lower price point.
The Universal Hub for Xbox One will be available on May 28th in Europe, USA, Australia and Japan.

TP needs some updating. It is not very intuitive for new users. Instructions are hard to follow at times. Support response is in need of someone's dedication. Having individual paints is a real attraction within iRacing. This needs to be done better or replaced! ​Interesting that without member support there would be no answers or help. It's a shame, the program is so popular not to have good management.

Hey Shaun:

I was hoping to participate in the next race and on Simracing System it says it's at Fuji. Which version of Fuji should I download.

Thanks!

Sean,
I am all signed up and ready to race in the Carrera Cup, except for one thing.  How do I obtain Road America?  I do not have it in AC as one of my tracks.  Where is it?
