Lightyears more sexy looking than Forza5
**bleep** where they thinking releasing that garbage. it's like upscaled PS2
So looking forward to Driveclub!
To be fair, you picked some of the worst FM5 photos imaginable. I just took two photos without really even trying to get something worthwhile:
Don't interpret this as me endorsing FM5 by any means. I can't really tell much of a difference between it and FM4, and greatly dislike almost every facet of the game. I just don't think we should start off the thread by comparing DriveClub to its competition by using photos that look like they were taken with a potatoe, since I have high hopes for DriveClub and fully expect it to blow FM5 out of the water due to the PS4's better specs.
Anyway... Yay for next gen racers, and I'm particularly happy I'll get to try DC out with the PS+ edition.
Comparisons between DRIVECLUB and Forza, or even Gran Turismo, are moot. Forza and Gran Turismo are racing simulators, while DRIVECLUB is more of an arcade racer, similar to GRiD.
If you think otherwise, consider this: do you think Sony would allow an exclusive game to be geared as a racing simulator when it will only be overshadowed and outperformed by Gran Turismo? Doing so would cause DRIVECLUB to be a massive flop, thus losing Sony a lot of money. Gran Turismo has brand power; DRIVECLUB does not because it's a new intellectual property.
