Fulfill your virtual farming dreams with this $300 tractor controller

At one point or another, most of us have tried (and normally failed) to tackle a few laps in Gran Turismo or Forza Motorsport with a racing wheel. But have you ever used one to drive a tractor in Farming Simulator 15? Nope, didn't think so. Peripheral maker Saitek has designed a new, monster accessory that includes a steering wheel (with turn knob), foot pedals and a side console complete with over 25 programmable buttons and a loader stick. It's designed specifically for Windows and Mac, and the price alone means it'll only appeal to the most hardcore agriculture enthusiasts: the all-in bundle will set you back $299.99, or you can pay $149.99 for just the side panel or wheel/pedal combo.

The company expects to ship the first units this fall, and Polygon reports that a Farming Simulator Gold 15 bundle, which includes a copy of the game, will be coming to Europe later this year. It's a kooky peripheral, but after playing with bongo drums, maracas and a dual-stick "vertical tank" cockpit -- nothing seems out of the ordinary.
