It's the Little Things: Immersing in Shift 2

Every racer has a cockpit view now. Shift 2 raises the immersion bar with a view mode that puts you inside a professional racer's helmet.

The story is too old to be commented.

I'd like to see it for myself. Sounds pretty damn cool.

Cool? Definitely.
Practical for a game? Hell no.

I think the helmet would get in the way. Sometimes I wear a chinless helmet because the buckets are unwieldly. I've never driven with a helmet on but I would think that your FOV would be decreased dramatically, and in a game where it's harder to have depth perception than in real life, a narrow FOV would be awful.

Oh.. and chinless helmet is like a Cromwell Spitfire helmet without the chin guard, while a bucket is full face helmet covering the jawline and chin. I'm a rider.

Umm...wtf?

Why does it matter whether your helmet is chinless or not? its a game...not real life, you don't wear a helmet...to play this game

GT5 may be The Real Driving Simulator, but SHIFT 2 seems like The Real Racing Simulator!

Can't wait.

It looks very interesting. Looking forward to this one.

Was Shift (1) a sim? No. Was it fun? Yes. Skeptical this one will be any more of a simulator.
