Let it never be said that I fanboy for the sake of fanboyism. If the alternative looks better to me, I switch.

If I could use the Xbox controller on the PS4, and it had Forza as well, then I'd probably switch too if I'm honest.

I must admit that the prospect of starting from zero in Destiny is slightly terrifying. To the point where I'm considering just not bothering.

You can transfer between generations but not between families. So 360>Xbone and PS3>PS4 only.

And no, I'm not getting an Xbone just to keep my Destiny progress intact.

Really? I think it's looking terrible.

I don't mean the graphics, which are a lovely set of pretty (being able to have the in-car view but from the middle of the car is a brilliant idea!) and the weather looks great, but I'm getting more and more concerned about the physics and the amount of cars.

The single seaters in that demo seem to be skating around like it's 1980 and we're playing OutRun again, regardless of in the wet or dry. The car at the end on the soaking wet Brands looks borderline uncontrollable, which just seems odd.

There's only a handful of cars too, less than half what F5 had when it launched last year, but at least there's a good bunch of tracks available.


I dunno, I want this to be amazing and shake up T10 and Polyphony in a big way, but I have some serious concerns that aren't getting eased the closer we get to launch. I'm hoping for a demo or 9s and 10s from every outlet, else I'm not sure I'll spend money on this.

:lol: Do you not think they look odd at all? More arcadey than either Forza or GT?

What I mean is I didn't see single-seaters or Brands or even any rain in the video I posted.

Show me the thing you've seen plz.


Also this may please you.

I assumed you'd posted the exact same video I'd watched about 5 mins earlier as it had just been released, oops :oops: No idea where that video is now, I've seen loads of the buggers since then.

I'm a little more excited about it now I have my awesome wheel/pedals/stick combo though. I think it'll still suffer from lack of content, but if it can deliver a more sim experience then I'm in. I just hope the DLC will be plentiful and cheap.

That goes someway to explaining my point: The human car has waaaaay too much grip for those conditions, and the CPU cars seem to be treating the grass like tarmac.
