The Xbox Compatible MOZA R3 Makes Its Grand Launch!

Sim Racer

E-sport driver & Sim Racing enthusiast, I decided to share my passion on this website.

Chinese sim-racing device manufacturer Moza has become popular in less than 4 years, and that’s quite a feat in such a competitive industry. We have other players who have taken years (over 10 years) to make their mark and be considered for possible setup racing.

However, this rise in the charts did not happen by chance. No, far from it. Moza’s teams are not only skilled in their respective fields, but also possess a great passion for motor racing, and a wealth of experience in the manufacture of engines and electronics. Moza Racing is a division of a company that has been manufacturing camera stabilizers for over 10 years.

Currently, the Moza range includes 6 Direct Drive chainstays, several steering wheels and pedals, plus other peripherals such as dashboards, shifters, handbrakes and more. Even if in absolute terms it’s not much compared to the competition, especially for steering wheels, it’s still enough for any average rider.

As a young company, you’ll have to imagine that its products are purely PC-compatible. And this is the case for the brand’s basics. The tiny DD R3 base is PC-compatible, of course, but it’s licensed for Xbox, and I really don’t know how Moza got hold of chips for Microsoft’s consoles. Some players have been in the game for a long time and still can’t achieve console compatibility. But that’s not the point.

Moza’s R3 was announced months ago, with the famous “soon available” still on the brand’s website. Well, the wait is finally over, and the R3 bundle is available. This includes the R3 base, which develops 3.9 nm of peak torque, an Xbox-specific ES steering wheel (which is really just a cheaper derivative of the standard PC steering wheel), an SR-P Lite pedalboard and a table clamp for attaching everything to furniture.

The R3 base represents Moza Racing’s first entry into the Microsoft ecosystem, thanks to its Xbox One and Series X/S compatibility. If you have the latest console, or even the one before that, from the American giant, you’ll be able to enjoy a host of sim-racing titles, including Forza Horizon and Motorosport, AC, ACC and many others.

I should point out that the R3 bundle is entry-level, so you shouldn’t expect superb transcriptions of effects and other physics engine details. In absolute terms, the base is pretty good, and will easily keep you happy in sim-racing. What’s more, the bundle sells for around €400, which is a very attractive price for Direct Drive.
