project cars isn't next gen

Abriael1503d ago

Of course it's not mate. Keep telling yourself that :D

heisenberguk1503d ago

Technically it's current gen

Abriael1503d ago

@heisenberguk: almost everyone is still calling the PS4/Xbox One generation "next gen," considering that adoption is still limited.

SnotyTheRocket1503d ago

"Next Gen" refers to CONSOLE only, not PC. You can't say a PC is next gen, because PC doesn't have "Gens"

sigfredod1503d ago

The shots looks great, however there is a couple that they should not show, like the one on the tunnel the textures on the ceiling and beams are hideous

Zhipp1503d ago

Of course PC has gens. You get a new Gen of CPUs and GPUs every year. ;)

RumbleFish1502d ago

Next gen is when I buy a new GPU! pCARS is next gen, because there's nothing like it on the market yet.

psman0121502d ago

sigfredod, you're absolutely looks like the textures are toonish in that one scene, like it from Crackdown or something haha.

Computersaysno1502d ago

Maybe because it'll never look like this on any console currently?

No console version will match the PC version. So I guess that?

DOMination-1502d ago

A question I always wondered: is project cars a working title? It always sounded like that to me. Its quite a rubbish name if its not.

Gamer19821502d ago

Still gonna look 10X better on PC this game shame its limited to a handful of cars..

Technically it's "no gen" until it finally releases.

pc fanBoys Are so funny always bu..bu...but pc .Please no one cares look at the news or a national newspaper or magazines . The mainstream media don't even mention pc because it's a niche market and not mainstream. Fox business news CNBC CNN all they talk about is PS4 and xbone never hear them mention pc. Michael Pachter said that 85 to 95 present of the game industry sales comes from game consoles. Michael Pachter also said that game developers and game publishers prefer Game consoles. Because they're much more profitable than pc. Michael Pachter said that piracy is too high on PCs developers and game publishers can't make money on pc. PC fanBoys have middle children disease look at me look at me.

isn't next gen but it's running 2560*1440 60 fps on my pc and blow away racing games on ps4 and xbone one as far as how it looks and it's also a great racing game all around without any micro transaction.

gman_moose1502d ago

**Yawn** til I see in game looking that good, GTFO. Everyone can make static images and movies look amazing.

Lol didn't we already comment on this a few days back? Seems like an identical article to me, how did it get submitted again?

...anyway, since i'm here now, I'll say it does look good, but the racing genre is in danger of becoming over saturated on new gen.

I can see the benefit to the Wii U, and PC gamers will get the best version. As for me, I think my faith in Driveclub will not be misplaced. The next 'unrushed' Forza game should be a lot better for X1 owners.

Abriael1503d ago (Edited 1503d ago )

First time it gets submitted.

Edit: 14 of the 46 screenshots here were indeed in one posted a couple days ago, but 32 of the screens are new.

Slightly Mad Studios releases new screens quite often.

PS: Driveclub is not a sim. This is a simulator. They're two different sub-genres. And the next "unrushed" forza? Who knows when we'll get it. This looks way better than any other racing game on the market and on the foreseeable future, and it'll come out this year.

I might be wrong, but I think this is the first driving simulator scheduled for release on PS4, and calling Forza a simulator is a bit of a stretch too.

snookiegamer1503d ago (Edited 1503d ago )

Okies, thanks for clearing that up. I admit I hadn't memorized each image :)


SEMANTICS >Driving sim/racing..all the same to me. The objective is to come 1st or win. Therefore it's racing IMO. Sub-Genre it all you race in all these games.

On the subject of racing games...I'm driving the hell out of GT6 at the moment :))

dsswoosh1503d ago

With all the driving assists turned off, Forza turns into an amazing driving simulator.

They just set the assists up as default for a better casual experience.

There is a huge amount of depth to Forza that you can see after 10 minutes of peering into what that game can actually do. Dont underestimate the simulator side to it, its actually very very good.

mhunterjr1503d ago

It looks great, but I wonder what type of hardware will be required to pull of these visuals...

I also wonder about the physics and the AI. Imo graphics aren't the be-all-end-all of 'next gen'

ScuderiaPaul1503d ago

Looks fantastic. However, all the fancy graphics will mean nothing if they get the handling model wrong. I have not played any beta as I am not a PC gamer but if it handles like NFS Shift I'll give it a miss.

Maxor1503d ago

This is a hardcore racing sim so of course it won't handle like NFS. Duh.

Fluke_Skywalker1502d ago

Hopefully not, but it's made by the same guys who made NFS SHift, and they marketed that as a hardcore sim too!

Ck1x1503d ago

I'm actually wondering when we will see this game running on the consoles as well!

WickedLester1503d ago

If they can get Project CARS as close to PC graphics as DICE did with Battlefield 4 on PS4, I'll be a happy camper.
