Project CARS Trailer Shows Maxed Out Gameplay At 1440p

Gaming Blend "It's already been established that at this point we won't be getting true next-generation visuals from the PS4 or Xbox One that comes anywhere near what many PC games are capable of doing. That last statement is made even more apparent when trailers for Project CARS are released that showcases the game in all its 1440p glory." (PC, Project CARS, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Wow, lol_wut. I've never seen someone so bitter at Nintendo that you have to drag a console you hate into a conversation just to throw mud at it.

Ideally, if I wasn't getting the PC version I would get the Wii U version solely for the game pad support.

PC version owns everything though, expecially your PS4. We rule this place. go back to waiting for your games that fail to live up to all of your hype. (900p, lol, what?!)

I love gaming at resolutions over 2k.

Man, this shows how offended you are for a console^^ Instead of calling others being idiots, you should try and get a life. If it were coming to PS4, it would still be inferior to a PC, live with it, it is how it is. You PS4 fans always make fun of the performance of the Wii U, we point out PC is way more powerful, you are offended as hell, but you do the same thing^^

And your beloved PS exclusives are a mere joke, if you compare it to the PC exclusives you are missing out^^


You simply cant let it be, probably the most immature around here, even though some may take his first place.


Actually he didnt drag it in, because the word PS4 was already mentioned in this conversation and he used it again, Lol_Wut on the other hand, couldnt take it and had to drag the Wii U into this discussion. You guys go around this board, always troll on others consoles articles, but be offended, when someone shows you, there is actually an even better way, especially since you guys always, I repead, ALWAYS complain about the other console, just because of the inferior hardware, that is basically your only argument against the other consoles, but that argument looks really dumb in front of PCs and you guys cant take that simple fact.

@lilbrorx and chrischi1988

The two best games (as in received the highest acclaim and review scores within the gaming industry) this year are "the last of us" and "grand theft auto 5", its reasons, like these 2 games as examples, why people game on consoles. Not to mention the entry fee.

I have enjoyed both games very much and they both ran beautifully on my PS3, Have you played either of those on your PC? Oh... Wait...

The PS3 is 8 year old hardware, it has 512mb of RAM, there is no PC on earth with 512mb of RAM and an eight year old processor that could run either of these games. You need to stop comparing consoles and PC's, they are not the same.

You carry on with your PC pal comparing resolution differences between between your PC abilities with all your PC buddy's... "Hey I just got a new $400 GPU, now bioshock infinite runs at 65fps instead of 62fps"

I can sum up in 2 words why people choose consoles over PC's: Value, exclusives!

Also how exactly do you suppose anyone games in their living room, in front of their tv (a lot of people don't like to sit at a desk), on PC or console and enjoy games at anything higher than 1080p when that is all most tv's support? Then again knowing you and your uber powerful uber expensive PC you probably own a $10,000 4k TV too. If not, why not? Surely that would be the ultimate gaming experience? Affordability right? RIGHT!

boneso82  +   772d ago

You mean downgrade to using a HDTV as opposed to a PC monitor. What's the point of PS4/X1 games running at a higher res than 1080p (not saying they could or couldn't) when most people don't own a TV that could display 1440p or higher?

Unless people have a spare £10,000 to buy a 4k TV this resolution argument against console gaming is completely irrelevant.

If you can find me a 60" TV or PC monitor that can display 1440p or higher resolutions for under £1200 (what my 60" plasma was), oh and a PC capable of running battlefield 4 at mid to high settings @ 60fps for under £349, then this whole article (including your comment) might make sense.

chrischi 1988, so why is my post incorrect? he said that the PC version owned everything especially the PS4 one, how is that possible when:
1. there is no fucking ps4 version
2. if there was then the "especially" part would be incorrect because the worst version wouldnt be the ps4 version.It would probably be the WiiU one.

ps exclusives mere jokes? xD what about TLOU? Ni no Kuni? Pupeeter? GT6? Beyond? Sly 4? and that is just this year.Come on, pc games may haver better graphics but PS exclusives are better than most pc exclusives in every other way , you are either blind or way too stupid not to see this.

I like car racing games but wasn't most of this trailer a CG movie? When you play you don't get to see your car with all those cinematic views only after the game is over. Regardless, the in the car view with the rain looks great. I wonder if they downgrade it for the XB1. If it's an online only game it could work. I don't have a gaming PC.

on races against 20 cars, and even on rain/storm, i can assure you all video is ingame, as i can have access to all cameras even on race time. i even share some videos on facebook and youtube so this game will be fantastic. btw, theyll release on consoles to finish financing and make some money out of it.
thisismyaccount  +   773d ago
Technically a "masterpiece", looks clean and sharp at 1440p. Well.. tbh every game does at that many pixel per inch.

Aesthetically though, it´s utter garbage. Hence why PC games tend to look more like "games" and console games -developer- are more into getting the cinematic experience.

This .gif via NeoGaf is over 6 years old and beat´s the crap out of this game (visually, aesthetically ) easily. http://www.abload.de/img/pg...

This one is from GT5, great look, nearly realistic until both cars enter the corner (blue car looks unrealistic, too shiny). http://i.minus.com/i76qSbqF...

And finally another GT5 .gif
proving that, you should put some emphasis on more than just adding higher reso. textures and what not...; (i know, reduced gif size = higher IQ..)


anyway this and the first (360 dev-kit PGR?) .gif show how bad PC Cars actually really looks like. Those debug-shots from dsogaming.... yeah, im still waiting to see that level of detail and visual fidelity on any video from the pcars community.

I think thisismyaccount makes an excellent point.

PC Elitists (not calling all PC gamers elitists, mind you) only really care about how high res and sharp everything is. But sharp does not equal an aesthetically pleasing looking game.

Console games tend to look more aesthetically pleasing because there's a much heavier focus on post processing effects that make the game more visually engaging, like smoke/particle/blur/DOF effects or subtle things like windshield reflections from the in-car view (PGR3 FTW!!!)

Oh the ignorance in the comment section. First of all, let's erase the myth that PC gaming is expensive. You could easily build a PC capable of medium to high settings and a 1080p resolution with 30+ FPS in recent games (let's face it, most games run on the equivalent of low settings on console) for about $500-600. Yes, it's $200 more expensive than the PS4, but you'll be saving money in the long term because of Steam sales and Humble Bundles + free online gaming.

Second, yes no PC can run current gen games on 512 MB RAM, but you do know that the consoles are heavily optimized and pushed to the brink in order to the run these games (quite poorly in fact). Have you seen what BF4 and GTAV looks like? Sub-30 FPS with 720p resolution, low textures and particle effects, with shit tons of jaggies.

Third, we don't really care about a few console exclusives. Last of Us is really more of a movie than a game. GTAV is gonna come to PC anyway (thanks for beta testing it). And while we're missing a few games here and there, you guys are missing out on whole GENRES: RTS, MOBA, MMO, and turn based strategy (Civ 5). Not to mention the superior multiplats (Skyrim, BF series), emulators, and mods.

Consoles are also dragging down the quality of games as a whole. Games would be so much more better if the devs didn't have to limit themselves in order to put out games on inferior hardware. Fortunately, PS4 and X1 have PC architectures (easier to co-develop and port), but they are still limiting games from their true potential by quite a margin.

Btw, you can use your PC with your home TV, and you can use console controllers on PC. So the excuses of how consoles are better because of the controller and how can you play on the couch are void.

watch dogs look better on PC(first two vids were much better than those ps4 vids), BF4 will look better on PC, Ryse 900p, deep down downgraded, CoD ghosts having better textures on PC(as IW said)

i mean you'll buy a system and that's it, stuck for an eternity, at least make it as good as this era's PC

In actual power and what can be done with the hardware they are closer to PC than you think. I don't know why people still compare hardware speccs 1:1 between PC and consoles because it doesn't work that way. It's every generation the same PC gamers going about you can have a more powerful PC simply going by speccs.
ape007  +   773d ago

another problem that people do damage control on ( i do too) is saying wait until they get utilized, im really doubting this theory

im no tech geek but both ps4 and X1 are X86 systems which makes them so easy to get power out of

i have a strong feeling that KZ SF, Ryse, BF4 and especially Watch Dogs are going to max them out almost completely Day 1

if watch dogs looked worse on consoles (it will) this will mean that it's already maxed out, an X86 PC game ported to an X86 consoles(basically PCs) and looked worse means it maxed out 100%, it's true LoL

PC will always be better in terms of graphics&power. You can't release a console in the 400-500$ price range that somehow magically outperforms PCs that cost 600-1000$. Not while making a profit at least, it's just simple math :)

If you have the money/time and are interested in building your own PC, it's something that is a lot of fun ;) It's not for everyone of course, but once you know how to set everything up and have it connected to your TV it's the best thing ever.
OrangePowerz  +   773d ago

Because they use X86 doesn`t make them the same as PC. It makes it easy to get a game running on it, but not to get the best out of it. Easy to learn hard to master. Unlike PC`s there are more things in the consoles to get more power out and it will take time for devs to find the best solution on how to max it out. You couldn`t be more wrong if you think that the launch games will be close to maxing out the systems, I know what I`m talking about.


Those are the meaningless comparisons I was talking about. The GTX already looses a huge amount of the power advantage by the fact that PC games are not optimized for a fixed hardware configuration. Another one being that the next gen consoles run on an APU that is a lot more efficient compared to a setup that has a separate CPU and GPU and I could go on for quite some time to point out why the disadvantage isn`t as big as people might think.


I didn`t say they outperform high end PC`s just that they are closer to them than what people think by just comparing speccs. I built my own PC and it`s also connected to the TV, but it has advantages and disadvantages just like consoles and I still buy certain multiplatform games for consoles although they don`t look as nice on console but play better on it compared to PC.

@orangepowerz As long as there is the possibility to strap 4 Titans together via Sli, then the consoles have no chance when comparing possible graphics. The consoles graphics will be awesome, don't get me wrong, but the margin between the top gaming PC and the consoles is HUGE. ENORMOUS. GARGANTUAS. Also, not debatable, because it is fact.

The developers on the exclusive content behind the consoles is why I buy them.

ABizzel1  +   773d ago

Technically speaking the PS4 is at it's near max. The only thing more they could do was upgrade to 8970m, which is only a few notches above what they already have.


and they're all in the same ballpark. There's nothing more they could do without building custom hardware, which would be hard to develop for and increase the price more than $100.
H0RSE  +   773d ago

"It's every generation the same PC gamers going about you can have a more powerful PC simply going by speccs."

I found this line particularly ironic, because this is exactly what is happening in the PS4/X1 console wars right now.
OrangePowerz  +   773d ago
A system with 4 Titans would be a prime example of one of the disadvantages of PCs. 4 Titans would be a huge waste of money because you would get far less actual performance out of it compared to what it would be able to do in theory because there will be no game that`s optimized for such a setup. If you take a super computer it would outperform high end gaming PC`s for many many years in theoretical power, but obviously no game would ever be optimized for that.


I`m aware that happens between consoles and while you can`t translated specs 1:1 between consoles because of small difference in how it is built and what extra processors are on it and so on it is more valid than comparing specs directly between PC and consoles.

Chrischi1988  +   772d ago

Since they are X86 makes them work pretty much like a PC and if they dont use much custom hardware it is like it is. Only the API which will be used on the PS4 can make a difference, but since AMD is about to release Mantle API and Nvidia is also working on their own API, all that made consoles great, will be not a console exclusiv anymore, so in other words, PS4 has no real chance against PCs, it is even funny that people try to compare it. Compare PS4 and Xbox1 if you want, but PC is and will always be, in a league of its own.
AKR  +   772d ago
Dude, stop - just stop.

You CANNOT, let me repeat that ~ C A N N O T, compare PCs and consoles. Why? Because they are built DIFFERENTLY.

Consoles are closed systems - meaning, they can't be upgraded. Their designed with the 1st-priority of playing games. Because of that; they have a streamlined OS and their games are optimized to run specifically on their specs.

PCs on the other hand are open. You can open it up, put in a new GPU, put in some more RAM, etc. PCs need the extra power because they are multipurpose systems. They are running different processes at the same time, as well as a full-scale OS.

The PS3 and 360 only matched the PCs of THEIR TIME. Meaning; the time they were released. After about 2 years, PCs started taking off farther than them. Why? Because once again; you can't build a console that will forever match PCs unless you can upgrade that console, which in effect, would technically classify it as being a PC.

AsimLeonheart  +   773d ago
I agree. PC fans rarely consider the differences between consoles and PCs before claiming PC superiority. New and better PC hardware is released throughout the year while new consoles are released 4 to 6 years later. Console manufacturers have to ensure that the console is affordable for the masses and design them accordingly. On the other hand, PC hardware manufacturers can just release a variety of hardware that caters to all the demographics ranging from budget to enthusiast. IMO consoles cannot compete with PCs in terms of performance for two reasons:

2) Consoles are released after half a decade unlike PC hardware.

It's not all about graphics though. The game has to be good. PC games can look better than any console game but I'd take Naughty Dog games over any better looking game. It's about the talent of the Developers and the overall quality of the games themselves.
webeblazing  +   772d ago
this is the most favorite and dumbest comment I always see on this site.

Question if you have a great looking game and it play great with great devs?

what is your point on saying that like theyre the only devs in the biz. bias yes
Hellbringer  +   772d ago
Games of Naughty Dog are not particularly good. These are boring corridor shooters. Nothing that you absolutely must have played.
clouds5  +   773d ago
I agree. Many PC gamers are just sick of getting lame ass console ports that use about 20% of the power their PCs have... it sucks ;)

I'm a PC gamer and I hope the new consoles are AS POWERFUL as possible. Because the PC games we get will mostly be limited by what the consoles can do. So i actually hoped that ps4/xb1 would have a bit more power under the hood.
But I'm very happy nevertheless. x86, big RAM pool (NO MORE TUNNEL LVLS PLZ) and 8 cores. XB1/PS4 is the best thing that happened to PC gaming in the last 10 years :)

@The_Infected: You are right, but I'd take Blizzard games over Naughty Dogs any day (and yes I've played TLOU). PC has amazing exclusives and will continue to get them (Star Citizen!), and you can always borrow a console for those 2-3 exclusives that you really want to play.

It is just a matter of taste. Taste decides which platform is the best for a certain person and people buy accordingly. I cannot get MGS, Final Fantasy, Uncharted, Tales of series, Ni no kuni and many others on a PC so a gaming PC is useless for me even if it produces the best graphics in the world. I have to buy a Playstation console for those games. If those games were on the PC then I would have bought a PC instead of PS.
OrangePowerz  +   773d ago
Not sure for you, but I played way more than 10 exclusives this generation that I wouldn`t want to miss out while I played only a small amount of PC exclusive games in the last years.

Chris Roberts said he might bring Star Citizen to consoles and the system requirements are below the power of current gen consoles to allow him to port the game.
clouds5  +   773d ago
Yeah well I'm not an exclusive PC gamer, I'm just a gamer ;) I had a Wii, now replaced by the Wii U. And I spent alot of time with both of them, and still do of course. Donkey Kong Country Returns is of my favorite titles from the last few years and Tropical Freeze is incoming :)))

Those few titles that I missed on the 360/ps3 don't really matter all that much to me, except maybe RedDeadRedemption. It all depends on taste of course, but I'm a pretty big fan of ActionRPG and Real Time Strategy games, while i dislike 3rd person shooters like Gears of War etc.
Those 2 genres I like are basically non existent on consoles and there is another thing that keeps me from getting xb or ps (true with next gen as well): They do not offer anything special that sets them apart from the experience on PC. I don't play alot of multiplayer (and when I do it's an ActionRPG or Starcraft 2, and a bit of CoD once in a while) and other than that gameplay is 100% the same thing on the 360/ps3 as when I plug my PC into my TV and play with a controller on the couch (it's set up like that anyway).
The only differences I see for my particular situation: worse graphics, subscription fee for online play and limited controller options. As much as I would like to try RDR and maybe the Forza series, it's just not worth it.

And I don't see any of that changing with the xb1/ps4... To me they are just little custom PC-boxes... PCs with a custom OS and a branding, nothing more.

well Orangeade no matter what pc will out preform consoles. so you talk about development time but what happen when there the same later on and pc looks way better. they could of locked with 1080p/60fps and then improve on gfx. whats going to happen when pc parts drop and you can do console level of gfx easily. and the no change in architecture going to apply to ps4 and xbone too, because x84 there not much to get use to just optimize.

like you said theres a people out there like me without a high end pc but we don't deny or run and cry with the fact. we don't brag about our system is better while trash people with a lower level pc like console exclusive gamers do. a lot of pc elitists is defensive because well look at any article on this site. most of the time they are making a point when people bring up gfx to bash another console. like I said take a look around.

and AsimL console came out 7-8 yrs later. they probably would of released early but the economy is F#cked up.

in the end its about the games and and a lot wouldn't mind playing at lower settings which people seem to forget. its clear pc gamers is not respected on this site like I said the reason some are defensive. look at top pc article pc gamer says about his rig and what happens.

Gster  +   773d ago
anyone know if this is coming to next gen consoles, I know they were considering it a few months ago. Haven't heard much about it since though. Would really love to see this coming to PS4. Main reason being that there is no real sim racer expected on PS4 for I don't know how long. Drive Club is the only racer coming onto PS4, then there's The Crew. Both great looking games and a lot of fun I reckon, but not sim racers.

Was really hoping SMS get the funding for this to be ported onto next gen consoles. I mean, it will be less expensive to port games over now considering how easy it is. It would be a very good financial investment for them too, with it having a probable Q2 release in 2014, there's gonna be quite a big install base on the new consoles, and it's only going to get a lot bigger within the first year. Would be terrific aswell if there was cross platform play with PC and NG consoles.

CyrusLemont  +   773d ago
Chances are, all the hardware we have now could easily run future PS4/X1 games. However, due to horrible ports and no optimisations, the hardware requirements are going to get higher and higher just to run them, thus draining the PC gamer of money. This f*****g pisses me off, and is why I always go with a console. Not because I have a choice, but because financially, I have to if I want to keep enjoying future titles.


PS Looking at everything individually on a technical point visually with this game, looks far superior to any console racers. With that said, it's horribly ugly looking at the visuals collectively. I don't know what it is, but it doesn't look unified or has a unique style. That is where console racers with these companies big budgets succeed I believe. Forza and Drive Club may not look better on a technical point, but they're synergetically stronger and consistently connected in all aspects visually.

PC gamers attack PS4 fanboys because you gloat and attack Xbox One and Wii U fans, because their consoles are weaker than yours.

They're the weak kids in the playground, and you're the bully bullying them for no reason.

Yet when someone bigger and badder and more powerful (PC) comes and bullies you, you don't like it! It's a hilarious hypocrisy.

Maybe if you were nice to Wii U and Xbox One fans, PC fans wouldn't feel the need to destroy you everytime and put you in your place.

If I/we wanted a PC to game on. We'd just go get one. But many do not even care to sit on a PC to game. So it makes zero difference to millions what a person games on. Get what you like. Get one, get both, get all... no big deal. But when you want to play exclusives that matter. See you are the source.

I think the reason Sony/Microsoft hasn't jumped real quick to get this onto the PS4/XBox ONE ( still up for consideration ) is because the timing of this game ( 2014 release ) is too early for Sony/Microsoft to fully prepare to get the game to the level benefiting their next-gen consoles.

Do hope it does make the switch to PS4/XBox ONE soon.

"Different" is not the same as "new." It hardly matters when "old" PC parts outperform it anyway. Nvidia is dropping new cards just a few months after the new consoles come.

DomceM  +   772d ago
I would agree if this was last gen but the "next gen" consoles (that cant even do 1080p), have PC specs. Same arch.

So why cant we compare? Its actually very apples to apples now.
Hicken  +   771d ago
Optimization, among other things. The fact that PC is and always has been- as far as gaming is concerned- modular in its design.

If you ARE comparing PC to consoles, you have to compare either similar specs, or similar prices. And you know what?

Consoles win in either case.

A PC with the same specs as the PS4 or XB1 wouldn't be able to keep up because of the better optimization of consoles, and it would cost a considerable amount more.

And a PC that cost $400-500? Forget it, it probably wouldn't be able to keep up with the PS3 and 360.

Project CARS looks great, but if it's running at 1440p, then it's not doing so on a rig with the same specs as the next gen consoles.

So, STILL not apples to apples.

Nice try, though.
DomceM  +   771d ago
You just got owned on the other thread and you are going to post the same argument over and over again?

Consoles = low specs, higher price. End of story.

And your incessant focus on "launch price" is just a way to admit defeat because you know that long term (which is the only thing that makes sense to focus on because that is the REAL price you pay for owning something) it is better to own a pc.

"And a PC that cost $400-500? Forget it, it probably wouldn't be able to keep up with the PS3 and 360. "

And with this you reveal why you make such stupid comments all the time. It is clear you have no understanding of what powers your games, so how about you stay out of the conversation until you are more informed?

Oh and Ps... enjoy your 900p or whatever. PC gamers are already leaving 1080p behind and are going to 1440p+.

Yay for your next gen console not even keeping up with last gen PCs.

Higher price?

By all means, build a PC with the specs of the PS4 for less than the PS4's price. I'd love to see what you come up with.

It's not an incessant focus, you dolt. I haven't mentioned it at all here, and it was mentioned in the other thread because it was relevant.

"8 Reasons Why You Should Not Buy a PS4 or XB1 at Launch"

No, I guess I shouldn't talk about the price at launch, but the overall cost six years from now. Cuz that makes PERFECT sense in an article talking about CONSOLE LAUNCHES.

You know the worst part of all this? You don't actually make any points. You just pull a bunch of stuff out of air and act like it's written in stone. Wanna bet the rig that ran Project CARS at 1440p cost two, three times more than next-gen consoles? No, you probably won't.

PC CAN BE cheaper in the long run. It's not a given, as the number of games and desired level of performance varies by individual. You're basing your conclusion on the erroneous assumption that every console gamer will buy the same number of games, and will pay full price for all of them; at the same time, you're assuming every PC gamer will buy the same number of games, and get discounts and sales for all of them.

That's not biased in any way at all. /s

What you call an argument fails because it's based entirely on your personal bias, and and such, leaves out significant factors that would be detrimental to your case. If, rather than glossing over the things you don't want to hear, you can logically address them and prove that it is either irrelevant or a point in PC's favor, then you'll be getting somewhere.

As it stands, you're just an ignorant PC fanboy who doesn't even know enough about the subject to even begin talking about it.

So, to save me the headache of reading your drivel, and to save you the embarrassment of looking like a complete idiot, I advise you to stop.
DomceM  +   770d ago
@ Hicken

No point to explain price to someone who does not understand that paying a yearly fee is part of the cost of device stretched out over a time period.

I can borrow money from someone as a pc gamer, buy my pc, and then give it back over time. You are doing the same thing, and I am tired of trying to explain basic math to a dude who cant stop riding sony's d**k.

Your console isnt $400. You pay a yearly fee for Online. And you pay $10 extra per game.

Get over it.

I can easily build a PC for 800-900 that will smash your ps4 to bits in any comparison. Which is fine b/c your ps4 is actually a $1000+ machine. For a lot of you its actually closer to $1200+.

The only difference is that my money goes into making my games look better, while your goes to Sony for "online" (lol pay for internet twice), and an extra fee to sony directly for every game sold on the system

Stop being an obvious fanboy and keep parading that your system costs 1/3 of what it actually costs.

Sony is selling the console at a loss you dunce. How could they make money if you didn't give them more in the long run? Morons like you shouldn't be allowed to post.

bu bu omg its only 400$ at launch!. What a dumb statement. Sony could sell it for $1 at launch and charge you drones the remaining cost over time. its the same thing.

Stop posting if you cannot do addition.
