For this particular writer, it’s the PlayStation 4 version that has my attention. Even more so because since moving on from the PS3, there just hasn’t been a racing simulator worthy of living up to the untouchable standards set by Gran Turismo 6 – The Real Racing Simulator.
Plainly, I want something realistic: a proper simulator, so to speak. And I’m sure many of you do too, craving for some real-life Nurburging action, and some arcadey frenzy like NFS: Rivals or the over-hyped Driveclub. I miss being able to play GT6 with my G27, but until Gran Turismo 7 comes along for the PS4, it looks like Project Cars will have to do.
Admittedly, it’s also no easy purchase. After only just securing Dying Light, spending another RM199 on a video game you can’t test for yourself beforehand is more of a gamble than I’d personally enjoy taking.
Which makes it rather fortunate then, that we’ve stumbled across this YouTube video. GameSpot has taken the trouble to ask a few real-life pro drivers what their impressions were of the promising video game.
After watching XCar’s “track-trained” drivers take on the PS4 preview of the game and a proper driving rig, I think I might be making a stop to the closest gaming store I can find, tonight.
“There was definite promise to make Gran Turismo look a little bit like child’s play” – them fighting words!
Here’s the vid:
