As another thread pointed out. How does anyone know the car slides around too much? Have all of you guys drivin this car to see what happens when you only drive with the throttle all the way down? That's what you have to remember unless you're really adept at the right analog stick configuration. Anybody who's drivin a car with comparable horse power will tell you when you slam the gas down, the car is gonna slide all over the place. The fastest thing I've been in is a G8 GT and can vouvh for this phenomenon. I think the vast majority of people are using the dualshock controller and the x button for gas. The x button isn't much of gas pedal. You're either stopped or you have the pedal to the proverbial floor. That isn't realistic in terms of how one would drive. It IS hyper realistic in terms of how the car should perform with that type of throttle input.
All that said. I don't think Polyphony picked the best way to demo the up coming game. With just a dualshock it definately is difficult to control. If that is representative of the difficulty of the game I'm not sure how excited I can get about actually having fun playing it.
PS: Gar like someone else said, enjoy the Indy500.
Lord D2, i agree totally with your post but as a 6Axis user i just have onething to say. The X button can't substitute for a pedal totally but with careful tapping, and with varying force of the each tap, the throttle can be manipulated, it just takes some feeling to. This isn't only to you but to all control users, a wheel is always better but a control can offer very sophisticated driving ability, just ask Gar
And I agree with you sir. I've played all of the GT's and they are all very fine tuned games. I have grown accustomed to using that very method to gain more precise control. It is the 'realistic driving simulator'. I think that's how it goes. On the face of it though a controler is not the most realistic method of controlling a car.
My point was simply in addressing all the gripes of everyone saying the steering is lousy or the steering is wrong. You and I know it isn't. The reality is that this is as hyper realistic as a driving game has ever been from a control stand point.
Five+ years and they still have the same gamy sounding screeching tire sound the had in GT4?!?!?!?! Give me a break, Grid and NFS Shift have better sound effects.
The environment looks "dead", flat and sterile. Yes, great looking, but fake. I don't know, it doesn't look much better than GT5p.
