Racing Games Never Looked This Good - New Project CARS Community Screenshots

DSOGaming writes: "Slightly Mad Studios has released a new set of screenshots and I’m currently drooling all over my monitor. It’s really hard to believe that Project CARS is still in alpha phase and looks this good. As always, all shots show purely in-game footage that has not been made in any special photo mode with no post-processing or filters that aren’t available during the actual gameplay." (PC, Project CARS, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Amazing looking game. Probably fry current consoles or limit them to 5 frames per second. If I can buy this and not do it through Steam I'll be buying for sure.

Project CARS is just SICK with the graphics!!!

Enjoy this on the PC TODAY!!!

Next gen consoles may get a port and should be able to produce the same quality as I predict most Next gen games should have Just Cause 2 PC or even Battlefield 3 PC type of graphical detail and fidelity!

I wanna see crytek make racing game..
Amazingmrbrock  +   1270d ago
It says it's releasing on current gen consoles xbox 360 ps3 and wii u. So yea it's actually probably not going to next gen consoles which haven't yet been announced btw.

Everyone here talks like they're already announced.

A couple of the images look current gen (the F1 races at least), but then you look at the best ones and it's clearly a step ahead.

Image 21 OMFG WOW
STONEY4  +   1271d ago
It's actually being planned for a 2013 release on PC, PS3, 360, and WiiU. It's obviously going to look nowhere near even the alpha version of the PC build though.

"If I can buy this and not do it through Steam I'll be buying for sure."

You can actually get in the development builds right now. It's completely community funded. You can pay for a full membership right now and get access to the weekly builds, and get a free copy when the full game releases.

*sigh* What's up with the idiotic snobby elitist PC gamer attitude? You make us look bad.
Perjoss  +   1271d ago
I don't think all PC gamers are like this, and the ones that are have not always been that way either. They are upset because most of the bigger studios choosing consoles as lead platforms and then porting onto PC. It wouldn't be such a problem if the ports were good, but in most cases PC gamers have to put up with retarded interfaces and very low quality textures, to name but a few issues.
Amazingmrbrock  +   1270d ago
It also has undeniably better graphics, drastically cheaper games if you buy through sales, and a huge variety of inspired indy games.

In exchange we have to deal with many different kinds of shitty drm, from games for windows live, to blizzards bs. Plus we are unable to trade old games, though if you buy them on a sale it's not a big deal at all. In some regards it's kinda even but pc is a bit more versatile and cheaper in the long run than console gaming. As long as your smart about your purchasing decisions.

^ Well, you must not be familiar with pre-existing sim racers like iRacing.

ProjectCars itself is highly community driven, so I'd figure it'll be succesful. I'm not expecting it to do GT5 numbers.

Interest is given to the visuals because the article is about screenshots, so obviously the talk will be about visuals.

Thanks for the tip. I'll check it out.
Ashunderfire86  +   1270d ago
Wow what a coincidence!!! I have that exact same specs on my HP Elite desktop. You should be able to this game from Medium to maybe(Bottleneck could be a factor) High settings. It might hiccup on Ultra settings.

I'm curious!!! Which PC Brand did you put those parts on to get those specs?
sak500  +   1271d ago
If there is a demo i'll try to max it out on my below rig:

core i7 760 @ 3.8ghz
DDR3 2 x 2gb @ 1700mhz
5870 1GB x 2 (xfire)
128GB SSD O/S + applications.

But my preferred setup
Xbox 360 on 50" Plasma @ 1080p LOL

lol....99% of ps3/360 games are sub-hd/720p max, covered in jaggies

next gen consoles ps4/720 wont do what this game and 100's of other pc games were yesterday

My rig:

Can I run this?
Dee_91  +   1271d ago
awesome rig sak500 !
im running

500 gigacore

78gb ram
Motherlode Motherboard
17xblueballs outlet tripod with 3! legs
8BD drives
12 dvd drives
2 vhs to BD and or DVD converters
and its all sealed in plutonium case with gold leafing and diamond encrusted lettering
all for 4 .. hundred.. dollars

those crappy 6 and 5 year old machines could neever run this.When the ps4 and nextbox come out next year (according to my crystal ball) they MIGHT be able to pull this off....

calm down folks it looks great.NFS Shift look great too so i was expecting this from them.
BitbyDeath  +   1271d ago
@taquito, you see this rumoured spec sheet for the PS4?

This would blow current PC's away if true
sak500  +   1271d ago
THERE YOU N00BS my rig results.


4 GB since my o/s is 32bit. Anything above 3.8gb is wasted there since system doesnt utilize it.

dirthurts  +   1271d ago
There is no benefit to having more than 4gb of ram. There is no performance increase. Actually in some games you lose performance. I've tested this myself.

Have you not played it? The game performs well at max settings with a GTX580. No problem doing 1080p and exceeding 50FPS

We need another racing simulator that is as close to pc only racing sims. They won't be found on console atm after all.
sak500  +   1271d ago
If you prefer simulator but not same level graphics you can check out forza 4.
wishingW3L  +   1271d ago
Forza is not a sim like GT. Forza is more about online community and cosmetics customization. The game even has a degree of driving assist that you cannot turn off no matter what, the over-steer works more like arcade racing, etc.

I can't find it right now but there's a video where they compare the lap times of a real life track on a real car to Forza's and GT5 and the lap times on GT5 were the closest to the real thing. And believe me, for a sim racing this is a huge deal!

Forza may have a higher metacritic score but that's all what it is. Just a score. Many of those points on GT5 scores were deducted for cluttered menu, standard cars and archaic online component but the physics of GT5 > Forza 4.
waltyftm  +   1271d ago
Oh dear, you seem to have put forza 4 instead of GT5.
Qrphe  +   1271d ago
>any forza game

does not compute
StreetsofRage  +   1271d ago
LOL! Still trying to defend your precious GT. Aye, when are you kids going to let it go. Forza is king just move on already.
Dmarc1  +   1271d ago
haha i know right
stupid people and their own opinions. what is this free thinking crap.the nerve of those people
dirthurts  +   1271d ago
I've always liked forza games, just my preference really.
GT are pretty solid games, but a little tough at times for my taste.
To each his own, but both are fantastic games.
GRID 2 has me excited, despite the lack of a cockpit view. Not a simulation, but balls to the wall fun. :)
BertlSenix  +   1270d ago
GT5 is the only REAL Simulator

Forza still has a somewhat Arcade Feeling to it.

But you Xbox Kids will never accept this.
Especially cause most of you don't have a clue how to drive with a Manual Transmission in Real Life.
GT5 is the most realistic driving game on consoles and especially if you drive with a racing seat and a perfect setup.Forza can't reach that depth.
Halochampian  +   1270d ago
Its appalling how many people consider the GT series to be a "true" simulator.

The game where you dont ruin your transmission by downshifting at too high RPM's.
STIKUP ARTIST  +   1271d ago
I still play forza 4 and gt once in a while. But after playing real sims like iracing and rfactor 2 they both feel wack.I prepaid for PCars so I play the weekly builds, My gtx 570 phenom x4 and 12g ram cant max it out but its prettier than any other sim pc or console.
Dee_91  +   1271d ago
how does the physics compare to iracing ?
ProjectDeputy  +   1271d ago
GT is a real sims get ur facts right
stop playing with everything auto

funny how ppl always trying to dethrones games just because a new fish is in town lol....guess what nap...IT wont happen,by the time 6 is out this game will be history.

Obviously very old screenshot. It even has placeholder textures. Nowhere near finished. Come one dude.
ShiftyLookingCow  +   1270d ago
IIRC Project Cars is a game you can support the dev directly and receive alphas and help them with testing. I remember reading this almost a year ago So that is a screenshot from an old version.
chukamachine  +   1271d ago
I wouldn't call those bad graphics. Maybe console?

A PS3/360 should run that fine at 720p fxaa.

Best textures so far in a racing game goes to dirt series, best lighting and car models to GT5.

This looks like a combination of those.

My pc will run that easily@60fps.

For all else, 30fps/ 360/PS3.
InTheZoneAC  +   1271d ago
looks good, but if the physics are off this game already fails. Same way Forza is garbage to me. Unrealistic drivetrain modifications with unrealistic handling characteristics after those changes make it cheap. Everyone's running around with AWD Vipers, RWD civics, how unreal is that?

And then to allow those cheaply modded cars to own all the lap records is even more stupid.

And I know there is a RWD civic, it also has a corvette engine. And I can promise you the weight balance and overall handling is garbage.

Look the same like every other Sim game out there. Nothing new. Same cars, tracks, ects. and they called it new.
