Project Cars Xbox One Stand At Egx London 2014 Is Demoing The PC Version?

"Since we weren’t able to secure a Press Pass for EGX London 2014, I took it upon myself to buy a regular visitor ticket and have a stroll around to see what upcoming games are in a playable state".

"A lot of interesting contenders out there and by far Project CARS was the best Racing experience this year, however I want to note something rather unsettling about their Xbox One Stand".

The story is too old to be commented.

I can tell you that Dead Island 2 had a PS4 controller but was running on Windows 7 because it was the only way to restart the demo. (the game exited to the windows 7 desktop and rebooted back to the demo start screen.

But Dead Island 2 is a couple of months away, Project CARS is releasing in a few weeks. They should have a X1 build up and running if you ask me.

"But Dead Island 2 is a couple of months away, Project CARS is releasing in a few weeks. They should have a X1 build up and running if you ask me."

Why does the time away from release factor into this? Because I believe everyone lost their s**t when this happened at E3 2013 with Ryse, and that was about 4-5 months away from release.

Also I think your release dates are wrong, which makes it even funnier since Project Cars releases in just under 2 months from now, which technically means you're ok with this right?

In all honesty though this is clearly becoming common practice among devs and I'm not sure what to think of it.

nX1481d ago

"Why does the time away from release factor into this?"

I guess you don't know how game development works, games are being developed on PC and ported to consoles. The closer you get to the console release, the more you need to have a finished build for that console.

"Also I think your release dates are wrong"

Orly? Project CARS releases in only 45 days while DI2 doesn't even have a date yet. They are in full development so they can't create a demo for every event or tradeshow so submitting the PC version is kinda understandable.

TekoIie1481d ago (Edited 1481d ago )

"I guess you don't know how game development works, games are being developed on PC and ported to consoles."

Thats actually not entirely true. You can make a game on PC but have it ported it to the PC if it was primarily developed for another platform.

Just because it's developed on PC doesn't means it's necessarily made FOR PC as a platform. I guess you never wondered why the term "Bad PC port" exists hmm?

"Orly? Project CARS releases in only 45 days while DI2 doesn't even have a date yet.".

So Project CARS releases in 1.5 months, (not a few weeks as you wrote) and I think I'll simply copy and paste this from your original comment:

"But Dead Island 2 is a couple of months away".

nX1481d ago

"So Project CARS releases in 1.5 months, (not a few weeks as you wrote)"

You really have no idea what you're talking about, if the game releases in 45 days it has to go gold about 30 days before that to even make it into stores in time. The X1 version of Project CARS needs to be 99% finished already to keep it's release date so it is simply misleading to still use the PC version on X1 demo stations.
Now please... don't make another uninformed comment as I don't have anymore bubbles to explain you how the world works.

That's ok, you were already ignoring most of what I was typing anyway which shows you have no interest in honest discussion.

Well this would be embarrassing for me because the ps4 version and Xbox One versions were right next to each other and I said that the ps4 version looked better with less jaggies.

So... PS4 > Pc? :O

Ladies and gentlemen. We have entered the twilight zone. Tooodaadeedootoodaadeedoo

Or I just need to get my eyes testes

Fishy Fingers1482d ago (Edited 1482d ago )

Or, if it were PC it could of been running the proposed XB1 settings?

This is nothing new, we've seen it on MS stands, Sony stands, 3rd party stands (demoed as if console).

Games are built on PC, if the PC build is more stabilised, more convenient, I see no problems demoing that build as long as it's reflecting the console specs as best they can and not falsely advertising the product.

aftershock1481d ago

But it wasn't running at Xbox one specs. The article said it was running in 4k which the Xbox one or ps4 cannot do. It's definitely still misleading and false

ravensly1482d ago (Edited 1482d ago )

Sorry to burst your bubble but ps4 will never be better than pc. pc hardware always evolves while ps4 will be the same

ps3 used to be powerful at release but now you know.

maybe for the price ps4 is powerful at present .

TKCMuzzer1482d ago

Bit generic. My PS4 will always be more powerful than my PC as I have no intention of upgrading my PC. It's amazing how 'PC' can be used so loosely when people want to make comparisons.
The simple fact is, no PC evolves without user intervention to add upgrades where as in general, console games usually advance visually over it's life cycle due developer knowledge.

I never really like PC players butting in with 'superior' comments, as I said 'PC' is such a loose term. Your PC may be better than a PS4 but millions of peoples won't and they never will be until they effectively buy a new PC, which is like Sony releasing a new console every other year.

ravensly1482d ago (Edited 1482d ago )

i am not taking about "your pc". i dont care about other millions of people who dont have better pc. i care about me who has a better pc than millions of other ps4 users.

upgrading the parts are better and cheaper than buying a new console.

1.paying for playing online
2.no steam sales.
3.multi genres and free non cloud bullshit backward compatiblity.

these are facts and you are too blind to see in the fogs of your fanboyism

Septic1482d ago (Edited 1482d ago )

@ravensly

I'm not saying that. I was just pointing out how my observation was flawed. There were two different levels being played. The PS4 one had a simpler stadium style race track whereas the one on X1 (pc?) had more detail on the side.

Anyway, don't read too much into my post. I'm not suggesting that a PS4 is more powerful than the average gaming PC.

[edit] also I note that I said:

"Or I just need to get my eyes testes"

That's supposed to say tested. ¬¬

I really do need to get them tested.

TKCMuzzer1481d ago (Edited 1481d ago )

You back up my point, the guy stated he thought the PS4 version looked better than what was running on the Xbox one. Seeing it may be confirmed the xbox one version was running on a PC , it could have been on medium settings. The trouble is your PC eliteness came rushing to the top as you automatically assumed he was ditching PC's which he wasn't. My point is, PC gamers are so quick to defend PC graphics that they always use 'PC 's will always be better'. My point is they won't, because it's PC specific to that user, not in general.
PC users should always say, "my PC will always produce better graphics than a PS4" instead of using the generic term 'PC', because it's just not correct.

Your reaction backs it all up, then you went onto a list of why your PC is better, making you look worse than the fanboys you then tried to ditch.

Not this again, do you guys really believe that this isn't up to the developers? that they don't choose what ever is most convenient? or do you believe that Major Nelson is creeping around unplugging wires and plugging in PC's in his underwear while laughing at all the stupid gamers on N4G?

"haha this will fool them" "beat this resolution Sony"
"they will never find out Phil"

Why would they do that? so stupid if you think its some conspiracy

Kingdomcome2471482d ago

That made me laugh pretty hard.

98xpresent1482d ago (Edited 1482d ago )

I honestly don't have a problem with this . Have a problem with False advertisement

Hellsvacancy1481d ago

Well, it IS false advertising, it doesn't matter if Sony or MS do it, it's plain wrong

DLConspiracy1481d ago

No, this rumor article is just trying to have a point. In other words if there is no fire create smoke to make it look like there is fire.

theXtReMe11482d ago

Yea, all games are built using PCs... so what is the issue using PCs to demo the games using settings that emulate those of the console they are demoing the game on? As per the 4k set... Most 4k sets upscale 1080p images to 4k. So I am guessing that is what you were seeing and not true 4k gameplay.

I could care less what system they demo the game on, as long as it is emulating 1:1 what I will see when I play it at home.
