"As a final treat, Rustchynsky shared that players will be able to actually manually control the KERS and DRS"

Nice, that is really cool. What an awesome little addition. For anyone that doesn't know what those things are -

KERS - "A kinetic energy recovery system (often known simply as KERS, on lowercase letters: kers) is an automotive system for recovering a moving vehicle's kinetic energy under braking. The recovered energy is stored in a reservoir (for example a flywheel or high voltage batteries) for later use under acceleration."

DRS - "The drag reduction system (or DRS) is a form of driver adjustable bodywork aimed at reducing aerodynamic drag in order to increase top speed and promote overtaking. It is an adjustable rear wing of the car, which moves in response to driver commands".

Yes, i used Wiki, and yes, i already knew what they were (i promise). Getting a little boost of speed after heavy breaking should be really fun to control yourself.

Yep, that's F1 systems that were built into the McLaren P-1, because it's cool as hell :D

GarrusVakarian1474d ago (Edited 1474d ago )

It is. Shame they didn't include it with all the cars just for the heck of it, even if it doesn't make sense, lol.

I think the P1 will be getting a lot of use from me. It's one of my favourite cars anyway, even without these features.


Lol, yeah. But it's such a shame to restrict it to one car only, talk about unfair advantage, lol! *Let me just use my speed boost via stored kinect enegery to overtake you on this straight!*.

Abriael1474d ago

Haha well, it'd be weird to give them to cars that don't have it.

Akuma2K1473d ago

I'll feel right home with those features, used them in the Formula 1 racing games.....can't wait to play Driveclub.

Aceman181474d ago

I was F1 religiously Lol, hear this terms every race. Pretty damn cool that it will be in the game.

GarrusVakarian1473d ago (Edited 1473d ago )

Haha, yesterday you gave me the link to Sunset Overdrive gameplay, now you give me this! *Bows down*

The sense of speed is very good indeed. This looks amazing, just the right type of racer ive wanted this gen. Loving the night racing, the track in the 2nd video looks great also, lots of high speed, windy roads.

waltyftm1473d ago

Stunning stuff, amazing visuals, awesome sense of speed, quality sounds, mere words don't do this game justice.

MasterCornholio1473d ago

Wow looks like they went insane with the detail in this game. Knowing that I can forgive for only having 50 cars if they are insanely detailed.

hellzsupernova1473d ago

Yeah at first I was like is that all? but then when you think about it you don't need a ton of cars you would only ever drive a selected handful and as long as they have the best super cars in the world who am i to complain. ALthough I do like me some oldschool Australian and American muscle cars.

Does anybody have a full car list?

hellzsupernova1473d ago (Edited 1473d ago )

I had no idea what they meant thank you.

However I have a couple of concerns coming from this interview, he states that drivers will not be fully able to wreck their cars which is a shame because I feel like if people make a mistake they need to be punished for that mistake, hopefully he was talking in general terms about the standard settings cause I would like to be able to push it as close to real as possible.

EDIT: also the interviewer mentioned GT6 driving on the moon and asked if they had anything special and he clearly hinted that they do have something crazy that players will discover after release

Ugh Mircotransactions really? Man oh well I just hope they don't get too bad.

Activemessiah1473d ago

Including Mircotransactions in a game is like baking a delicious cake then use excrement as the icing.
