This can't be new. They're still stating it's 35% done and Evolution promised they would have an updated version for Gamescom.

I want to see something...

windblowsagain3980d ago

It's not new.

They will be showing off updated visuals and new tracks tonight:)

nukeitall3980d ago (Edited 3980d ago )

A launch game at 35% done now?

Really?

No wonder Sony is giving this game away. It doesn't look good, isn't even close to being finished and likely will be rushed to completion. They should be polishing the game right around now and not building out core functionality.

I hope I'm wrong, but it seems dead *prior* to arrival.

If you want racing, get Forza 5 or GT6.

Minato-Namikaze3980d ago

You do know that this isnt the updated build?

christrules00413980d ago (Edited 3980d ago )

Really funny because Sony hasn't even had there conference yet and those games aren't playable yet either. This is old news from E3...... Not Gamescom.

TIER1xWOLFPACKx3980d ago

i think its an old article republished to get hits and hype people up tbh

IanVanCheese3980d ago

I've played it, it's pretty fun but it's no Forza, GT or GRID. Cool game but I can't see the full version selling that well, considerin a stripped down version is free on PS+.

Master-H3980d ago

Why post this now when we can get updated build preview in mere hours ?

christrules00413980d ago

Because those thoughts are well beyond some peoples comprehension. It shows who the Xbox fanboys are doing this article about E3.

medman3980d ago

Considering it will be free with psplus, people really shouldn't be complaining. I'm just hoping whatever they will charge for car packs and extra tracks for those who don't buy the retail version won't be exorbitant.

Gave you a bubble vote for making me learn a new word!

60FPS on PS5: Unofficial PS5 'FPS Boost' mods are radically improving PS4 back compat

Digital Foundry : Whether it's via FPS Boost or bespoke software upgrades, backwards compatibility on the current-gen consoles delivered an unexpected delight - the ability to liberate older console games from their 30fps limits, running them at 60 frames per second or even higher. FPS Boost did the business for Xbox Series consoles on an impressive range of titles, but there was always the sense that PS5 could do more. It's a hunch that checks out as a range of frame-rate unlocks are available for PS5, covering many must-have games - the major caveat being that only exploitable consoles running on older firmwares are invited to the party.

you love to see new life being breathed into older titles but damn the process to get there. It should be automatic that these work for everyone... not just those who exploit their systems. Really wish Sony and MS would keep this program going officially.

Psychonaut85183d ago

Damn this sucks. I want this shit so bad, but I’m not jailbreaking my console. And frankly I shouldn’t have to. I’m not a tech person, but is it really that hard for developers to unlock the framerate? Or would that have to be a large patch?

dveio182d ago (Edited 182d ago )

"but is it really that hard for developers to unlock the framerate?"

I guess it's not.

But it has become a profitable business if you do so.

So no one would pay for only the framerate patched to being unlocked. So studios need to offer more than that.

But this would take more time, polishing and would cost more money. So they shy away, but won't unlock the framerate, either.

That's just my personal assumption. But from what I can comprehend technically, it shouldn't be difficult to unlock framerates via a patch for older games.

... if it hadn't became a business.

RaidenBlack182d ago (Edited 182d ago )

frame-rate unlock should be free ...
We've seen many devs offer free patches and updates to pretty old PC titles, even bonuses ... so why can't devs offer the frame unlock patch for free (in consultation with the platform-producers) for a title from just a generation earlier?

Einhander1972182d ago

"frame-rate unlock should be free ..."

Obviously the result of that thinking is that developers aren't even going to do it.

If they had been allowed to charge $5-10 you would see incentivized developers doing it way more often.

People just always want everything for free, but it's not free to make the patch, people have to code it then other people have to test it, and there will always be other costs involved.

If people want dollar store gaming then expect to get what you pay for.

shinoff2183182d ago (Edited 182d ago )

Raiden I might be wrong but last I thought it cost money to put patches out on consoles.

As far as me paying for it, I'm not all that interested tbh. Not enough to pay for it with older games, and newer games have been pretty decent about it for the most part.

dumahim182d ago

Sounds like the modder has to go in to make changes to unlock it on a game by game basis. "Simple" enough to do it unofficially, but to have it done officially, they need someone to go in a make that change, put out a patch and put it through certification, which I believe is not necessarily a cheap thing to do. It's questionable if going through this would then give them enough sales to make it worthwhile.

Inverno182d ago

Many games still have physics tied to framerate, i think it's cause they wouldn't want to go in and do anything extra. Then there's the 10 dollar upgrades they rather charge. The problem is that there's no compromise, cause if I could mod my PS4 and all I'd lose is online play then id jailbreak it immediately. Mods have done so much for PC games and they could do the same for consoles, but manufacturers hafto be willing to compromise.

shinoff2183182d ago

It's not to hard to do and there's youtube videos that break it down really well. ANyway most of us here arent able to break are console anyway due to being up to date on firmware from playing

Chocoburger182d ago

Yep, this sucks having to require a jailbreak for something that should be standard in our industry by now. I learned my lesson when PS4 was jailbroken and I didn't keep a console on low firmware for years, but now I'm holding onto two low firmware PS5s specifically because there are features I'll be able to do that you can't do on official firmware, so this will pay off for me soon enough.

Jin_Sakai182d ago

It should be a sin to let these games sit and be stuck at 30fps.

EazyC182d ago

RDR 2 not getting a 60FPS patch for PS5 was a crime.

Driveclub - Brutal Backlog

Driveclub was a headline game at the start of the PS4’s life. A fabulous game – eventually - but what now, with the servers turned off? Is it worth your time? JDR starts its engines in today’s Brutal Backlog.

Bikes expansion might be one of the most underrated games of last gen. Incredible driver and bike animations + DC weather is craze.
