Stunning Project CARS PS4 Screenshots Taken in Game with No Tricks; DualShock 4 to be Competitive

Today Sony Computer Entertainment and Slightly Mad Studios released a few screenshots of the PS4 version of the beautiful Project CARS, and many immediately wondered if they were real screenshots from the game, or if some kind of trick was used to get that kind of visual glitz.

Creative Director Andy Tudor confirmed that no tricks were used, and gave more information about the controls on PS4.

Project Cars and Driveclub later in the year....man, i really need to get me a steering wheel + pedals. But they're just so damn expensive.

Great to know it looks that good on PS4, very reassuring.

@Abriael

Even if i decided to spend the money on a good wheel+pedals, i wouldn't even know where to begin. I have next to zero knowledge about them. But to be honest, after playing Forza 5 with the X1 controller, i don't want to play Project Cars with the DS4. Not that there's anything wrong with either of those controllers, they're both fantastic, but i want the full experience, so i might start looking into it.

Abriael1268d ago (Edited 1268d ago )

They're a good investment tho.

My only big problem is that with Microsoft dumping fanatec there isn't a wheel that works with both my PS4 and my Xbox One. That has been a real bummer for me because I love my CSR and it caused me to trudge through Forza 5 with no wheel, because I simply don't have the money to buy two, or the space for them.

In any case, a wheel really enhances the enjoyment of racing games tenfold. To be more precise, the real kicker are the pedals. The precision they offer in braking and accelerating is unparaleled.

I'm actually quite intrigued by Slightly Mad saying they plan to make the DS4 competitive against wheels, because as much as the DS4 is awesome, I simply can't imagine how it could be possible.

Edit: it really depends on what you want. If you want to spend little a Driving Force GT is sufficient. If you want the full deal, a Logitech G25 or a Fanatec are the best there is.

Yeah, I'm equally skeptical of their claims regarding controller precision, and I have raced almost exclusively with controllers - and I've been very competitive (World Cyber Games, even)... but any hardcore console racer will acknowledge the undeniable advantage offered by a wheel.

The right person using the controller can make it "competitive", but that's not to say that the disadvantage will be eliminated - there is only so much you can do. My guess is that Slightly Mad is referring to either sensitivity customization options, or basic mechanics like turning modulation. Either way, I'm not expecting much.

I wouldn't be too hung up about their controller claims. As nice as their controls may be, a professional with a wheel will always be better. You just can't emulate a real wheel with a tiny thumbstick.

I'm really glad they're showing straight up, in game screenshots, instead of the fake GTX Titan crap that happened with Forza 5. Project Cars looks good and is honest.

@Abriael Too right, if you're serious about racing, you need a wheel! Fanatec makes excellent products - I love my CSR wheel and Clubsport pedals and shifter to death!

It's a real shame MS didn't go with Fanatec for the Xbox One but I'm sure Fanatec will release something down the road...

memots1268d ago

bought my G25 set years and years ago.

It was working with my ps2 ps3 and been using lot on my main gaming platform ( pc )

It is a great investment. Paid 300 bones back then and worth every penny.

OrangePowerz1268d ago (Edited 1268d ago )

The G27 is a good wheel with 3 pedal setup and it includes a gear shifter at an ok price.

If you don't mind spendind a serious amount of money the CSW and Clubsport V2 pedals are the best choice that is affordable for normal people.

Still have official GT4 Wheel - DF Pro.

kingPoS1268d ago

I do too, but mines retired, I use a DFGT now a days.

Gateway MT6706 2008

Magicite1268d ago

Theres also The Crew and Next Need for Speed coming soon, right?

GarrusVakarian1268d ago

Yeah...but meh. I'm not really interested by those. I want a good track sim and a good arcade track/point to point racer. PC and DC will fill those voids.

I'M glad i invested the 25 bucks 2 years ago to be a team member. It includes access to every build update and access to the full game when it launches on PC. Also I'm using the DS4 to play the game and it works good.

uth111268d ago

I know the DS4 has motion sensing, can it be used to make it act like a steering wheel similar to the way they did it on the Wii? It beats using the joypad for sure.

Qrphe1268d ago

>It beats using the joypad for sure.
>motion controls

Highly disagreed, but that's what opinions are I guess

OrangePowerz1268d ago (Edited 1268d ago )

Motorstorm was actually good with the motion controls and I played it mainly that way, except for the bikes. Most other games didn't use that well though.

level 3601268d ago (Edited 1268d ago )

October through December will be a game racers' delight.

Drive Club and Project CARS definite must-have here.

Impressive images of Project CARS posted there!

Speak_da_Truth1268d ago

This and driveclub I will be getting 60fps or not as long as the game is smooth and fun that's all I care for.
