I've been a big fan of GT for a long time. GT5 is the game that finally made me buy a G27 racing wheel, and I haven't looked back. Now all my excitement for Gran Turismo PS4 is cut short by the fact that I'm going to have to buy a properly expensive new racing wheel for it. Y'know, so I get the same experience I had in GT5 and GT6 with my G27. #31

Once again I must ask, why can't the taser be a thing in multiplayer? I realize it could be a griefing weapon, but measures could be put in place to make sure it is only used for hilarity. #8

I don't understand the sheer amount of hate. Having played in three of four closed betas for The Crew, I had a lot of fun every time. Sure, the handling isn't the best, perhaps, and the graphics aren't as 'next-gen' as everyone seems to want, but the gameplay was very fun to me.

My only misgiving is that by buying it, I'm giving money to Ubisoft who doesn't even have the foresight to pretend that they care about the consumer. #2.1.2

I really wanted to play online so I decided to risk the update. Now I can't access GTA Online at all, and single player works for about one minute before crashing with the CE-34878-0 error. Currently re-downloading the game from scratch to see if that fixes the problem. #15

It's a driver conflict that causes the BSOD. I found I couldn't have Dualshock 3 drivers and 360 controller drivers installed at the same time because it would cause my computer to BSOD as soon as I plugged in the 360 controller. Solution was simply to remove the DS3 drivers. #4.1.2

Call me when there's a Thrustmaster wheel with shifter and clutch for that price. #1.1

Having only previously played the PC beta, this PS4 version feels less polished. I have missions freezing on me and black screens during gameplay (only HUD visible). The engine sounds feel like they've been lowered substantially in volume; they need a separate slider to general sound effects (a plane flying miles overhead shouldn't completely drown out a roaring V8 when you're sitting IN THE CAR). Also, sequential manual transmission on the Dualshock 4 is REALLY hard to get used t... #4

"59 tracks from the soundtrack including cuts from $AP Rocky, Tyler, The Creator, Twin Shadow, Wavves, Flying Lotus, Yeasayer and more"
"Additionally, the entire original score composed by Tangerine Dream, Woody Jackson, The Alchemist & Oh No, mixed by DJ Shadow will be included."

You mean that supposed 20 movies' worth of score? You're telling me that and 59 songs is supposed to fit on six LPs? Call me skeptical. #6

Yeah, Oblivion's levelling system is its biggest flaw. I only play it with a traditional XP system modded in as a result. #2.1

@opoikl I'm in the same boat, bought a 360 around the same time (about a year and a half ago) and grabbed every Halo game (even though I have Halo 1 and 2 on PC, wanted to FINISH THE FIGHT!). I have also finished each campaign several times, both solo and with a partner.

However, aside from shinier Halo 2 graphics, I'm not entirely sure this article gives any reasons why one would buy the MCC if they already have all the Halo games.

I'm tempted to an... #1.1.4

It's very depressing that the G27 is not supported by either new-gen console. I've yet to see a wheel for PS4 or XBO that matches the features and quality of the G27 for the price. Most of these wheels are much more expensive and yet they do not include a clutch pedal and shifter.

Guess I'm moving to PC for racing games from now on. #4.2

It's also worth noting that said Ubisoft rep said it would take about an hour and a half in a fast car on roads, while it only took me around 40 minutes from coast-to-coast in a stock Dodge Challenger. It's a big map, but they're really exaggerating the size.

Nonetheless, I'm still getting it. The beta proved to be a lot of fun. #1.1.1

I could save, but then my G27 will just sit in its box gathering dust.

Also, Boody-Bandit, I considered the T500RS, except for the awfully huge asking price. For comparison, I bought my G27 during a boxing day sale in CANADA and got it for $150. Compare that to a T500RS which is $500 and doesn't come with the shifter, an optional add-on that has a price of another couple hundred dollars. So yes, maybe Thrustmaster's products are superior, but at that price they're... #6.1.2

It's hard to justify buying another wheel that doesn't have a clutch or H-shifter when my G27 would end up gathering dust. Until they make a patch to make Logitech and Fanatec wheels work on the PS4, I'll be sticking with PC for racing games. #6

What wheel do you use? I tried my G27 in the first beta; had to tweak the settings a bit and the FFB was a tad on the jerky side. However, it was still miles above using my 360 controller. #3.1

Racing games (especially Driveclub and eventually GT7) are a big reason why I bought a PS4. As a G27 owner, it really saddens me that all my future racing game purchases will have to be on PC. #24

As a G27 owner, I can confirm that I'm very pissed right now. #1.6.1

Not a buy until it works with wheels. I don't care whether it's Sony's problem or Logitech's problem. All it should take is for one of them to contact the other and make it happen. I find it infuriating that this hasn't happened yet. #23

Agreed. Chances of my buying something not as good as my G27 just for Driveclub? Never going to happen. #8.1
