If you're a real racing fan, go for the PC version. The console versions won't look anything like that probably. I'll be upgrading my PC right before release!

Wow, both of you Belking & CmonBeReal have no clue huh?
Real racing sim enthusiast play their racing sim games on PC. Games like GT5 and Forza are child's play. I'm not saying PC racing sims are better all around games, but it's more realistic and are real sims.

Sure, you could play your GT5 on a 50inch screen with your steering wheel setup attached to your coffee table sitting 6 feet away, but that's really nothing.

Here's a video of how PC racing sim players play, and this 3 monitor/racing chair/steering wheel is not uncommon or extreme either:


This video below is extreme. Resolution 9600x1080. Immersive enough?

"Im going to have to agree...I play GT5 on a 50 inch big screen with my steering wheel set up rihgt in front so it feels like im IN the game. Very awesome. "

So then what is my PC doing hooked up to my 52" tv?

PC gaming is awesome!

@cmonbereal, Too bad you couldnt follow the advice of your name.
1%? way to pull numbers out of thin air.

You say its awesome to play a racing game on a 50inch screen using a racing wheel? I can do that using my PC and it didnt cost me a million to do so..In fact it didnt cost me any more than it did you.

I'm sure many people feel their Kia is great but they wouldnt argue that its better than a Ferrari simply because they cannot afford a Ferrari.

"Its all about immersion"
Someone points out a deeper experience on another platform
"It's all about cost."

What it really is is someone needs to justify their limited experience.

It's like someone who never went to anywhere but Mcdonalds yet thinks they are getting the ultimate in fine dining.

dumb comment.. pc has about 5 upcomming racing sims and xbox has 1 & ps3 has 1.. Don't talk if you don't know anything..

pc has more racing sims than consoles so if you like racing sims console are not the best to play on. Monitor or hdtv. 360, ps3 or wheel controller. Take your pick. Oh yeah you can't..

PiccoloGR  +   1206d ago
nope, it's not the final game. They might keep it though as most people already know it as pCars

they say FORZA is better compare to PROJECT CARS im sure it is not.
Bonerrr  +   1206d ago
I play the Beta almost every day and it's still not a patch on Forza. It's physics suffer the same problem at GT5, over exaggerated over steer.... turning the car into a car and the back end slides no matter what. It feels like NFS Shift.
Oh wait, same studio............

Forza is definitely not the "go to" sim for comparison. GT is not only highly recommended by sim enthusiasts, but actual racers as well, just based on the feel of the cars.

That said, I'm thinking the PC version of Project CARS is going to be something very special!
Lvl_up_gamer  +   1205d ago
GT5 has a very limited amount of cars that have an interior view. If you are looking for a "true sim-like" experience, the first thing you MUST have is an interior view. It's not "sim" if you are driving out of your car.

Only reason I end up playing more Forza 4 than my GT5 is simply I don't have an interior view for some of the cars in my garage.

No Interior View in the Bugatti Veyron? That right there is a crime.

Physics wise GT5 and Forza 4 are ever so similar to each other. Both games run off of outdated hardware where numbers and formulas are suppose to equal real life physics. Both have their strong points but to say GT5 is the "go to" game for sim racing....I would have to disagree simply because if I want to truly submerge myself into a sim, there better be an interior view in the car I am racing with.

You just proved my point as to why people don't wanna play racing games on the PC with that video. How many people do you know with that type of setup? Probably none. Sorry, but more people prefer to play their games on consoles nowadays. Plus, you don't need that ridiculous setup to enjoy the game. That video was not even close to an average PC gamers setup...but nice try though. This is the reason why console games are so popular. You only have to buy hardware once and not keep adding like you have to for the PC.

There is also the option to just hook up the PC to the bigscreen. Computers are capable of that you know. I don't even PC game, but the arguments against it are pretty pathetic.
Puddlejumper75  +   1205d ago
PS3 fanboys... They are constantly proving that they are swimming on the shallow end of the gene pool.
Seriously both of them got owned yet rather than admit it, this kid is like " See thats proof nobody wants to do that." If nobody wanted to do it then that video wouldnt exist.

Just poor people with limited funding trying to justify their limited lifestyle..

If he owned a bicycle he'd argue its better in every way than a Harley simply because he cant afford a Harley so it must be inferior to what he can afford.

Good graphics don't make a good game.
Nexgensensation  +   1206d ago
no way i agree but
graphics make a good game look good! =]

anyway since they're taking about having "the most advance graphics" its always good to expect "the most advance critics" to put your game on a much higher pedistol.

Don't expect praises from me until l like the game.
Lvl_up_gamer  +   1205d ago
There is no way that the stated features will be in the console version of the game.

Detailed 3D trees? Not a chance. Unless they are planning on having 1 tree in the background.

This game will be best played on the PC, just like BF3. The console versions will be good, but the PC versions will be great.

We could argue all day about it, but most people into driving sims recommend GT over anything else. Our own opinions on it are irrelevant.

*reply from above quote.
Lvl_up_gamer  +   1205d ago
@ cgi-quality

You are only looking at it from a physics point of view where most people would agree. Even I agree physics wise I would give the slight edge to gt5 but you are saying gt5 is the " go to" game for simulation. This is where the issue is. You have to consider the whole package of the game to determine which is the better "go to" game for the best emmersive driving sim and that is where Forza 4 has now been widely acclaimed as the best driving sim this gen on consoles. Forza 4 overall package just offers more to the user on a sim level and not just physics.

I agree we could argue this all day, either way I still enjoy both games for what they offer, I just feel that forza offers me more when it comes to being the "go to" sim this gen as well as the reviewing industry also seems to agree with me.

Not sure why me reply to you was down here.....
