Like a few others, these days I really dont need another Rally game that wont provide VR as an option. I have Dirt Rally 1 and 2 that does provide VR and I have WRC 6 and 7. All these games fill my needs to do Rally racing and most the time I just do trial single runs, not career mode. I dont need the latest and greatest every year of this type of game since I do not follow Rally racing. They are just for entertainment to pass my time away. For those that want the latest and greatest in any game, have fun and hope you enjoy the game. take care.
So what was the point of your message?

Assumption is the mother of all ****ups.... VR is still a niche, as triple screens and even having a wheel... people should stop beeing self entitled. You are free to not like the fact it doesnt support VR, the rest of the comment is just non sense.. i have VR since HTC Vive was launched before you burn my soul...
Amen!

They have polished WRC8. What the **** do you expect, it's an official yearly game. Do you think Codemasters would "polish" F1 2019 for 2 years instead of releasing F1 2020?!
^^Ok, so when u are happy about it, its cool. Im not. Nevermind.
But.... as the title says its just Wrc8 and not Wrc2019..... so they could indeed polish it better.
In my opinion this game was not like it should be.

Then how do you explain that probably the most awaited video game in the entire history of gaming is being released on Monday as a VR only title?
Silly Kojak, Cyberpunk 2077 isn't getting VR! :p

OT: This series is the racing equivalent of Call of Duty. Fool me once/twice/thrice...ok 4 times now, shame on you. Fool me the fifth time, shame on me. I stopped @ 7 and unless I hear screaming from the rooftops that RBR has finally been dethroned, this is getting no play.

But what about device support? I don't know how it was for wrc 8 but any respectable racing game these days must have complete Fanatec/Logitech/Thrustmaster wheels support.
I don't think there were any real issues with WRC8 outside of the usual issues of the game having some problems with various obscure direct drive setups (at launch?).

TBH I didn't have any issues with Loeb either.
SLRE doesn't support multiple controllers well, if at all. If you have pedals connected to the base, you should be fine. If not, you're likely out of luck. I had to make an adapter to be able to play it with my current setup to be able to connect my pedals directly to the wheel base.

What tools are you missing in Epic Store? I can't think of one thing that would be different to me if WRC8 was in Steam instead. So Epic charges the developer/publisher less than Steam, that's great. What's not to like? I wouldn't mind having everything in Steam since I have most games there, but it really is a huge non-issue to use Epic to launch another game.
Yep. Really don't understand why so many people are so much against the Epic Store. Especially since Epic takes a noticeably lower cut from the sales than Valve.

Why do a trailer with almost no in game video? Embarrassed by the graphics?
That's how teasers work. It's not a trailer.

It's about the fact that Epic buys the developers for exclusivity. And exclusivity is never a good thing. We should be able to choose where to buy our games. Like I can choose to which market I go for buying my food. You don't want to be able to buy groceries only at Walmart and not in other stores, do you?

IF the groceries are exactly the same and price are
very same... then I see no reason why it's different.

However... regular groceries usually not the same
and the games are so I believe this is just another
classic case of




bad comparison. :alien:

Seeing so many "no VR no buy" comments reminds me of why I don't visit this place too much anymore. Simracing elitism has gone way beyond just steering wheels. Meanwhile the VAST majority of gamers do well without fancy headsets and triple screens. My five year old PC is starting to struggle with modern games, and I cannot afford to upgrade it right now. Especially during these troublesome times where every penny counts. But people are still saying "no VR no buy".

Laugh at my comment if you want, I don't care. I'm in quarantine, and having a blast with Tony Stewart's game.

You can buy groceries in any grocery store. But if you have a favorite brand, you might not be able to get it in every grocery store, because not every grocery store sells every brand available. Some brands are even exclusive to specific stores. That's the equivalent of the Epic Store "exclusivity".

People complaining about Epic Store "exclusivity" are literally complaining about the fact that they don't want to go to a different store to buy their favorite brand of food, they demand to be able to buy it in the store they normally shop in. Well, maybe if your favorite store offered the same deal to the brand, it would sell in your favorite store too. But it didn't, so it doesn't. Stop complaining about made up issues* and go to the shop at the other side of the street, it sells the brand you like. Or don't go if you're really so against the idea of going to a different shop, but stop complaining about "exclusivity" or "anti-consumerism" or whatever you decided to currently call the minor inconvenience of having to visit a different store to get what you want. It's neither, it really is just a minor inconvenience of you having to go to a different shop to buy certain specific items, and it's a perfectly normal thing that happens every day.

(* Not necessarily meaning "you" as in "you specifically", just to make it clear.)

So because not everyone can afford it, the rest of the world should not move forward??
The first PC was crazy expensive, luckily someone bought it, and then it got cheaper, so more people bought it, then even a newer version came along, and it got even cheaper. With your mindset, we wouldn’t have any hardware at all, because no one needed to push the technology forward. We would still play on a green 10” screen, with a few dots coming against us. Be HAPPY that people want more, because then you get more, cheaper..

At the end of day, I've said it a million times. A racing sim without VR is not a better product than it including VR Support. There is literally zero reason why anyone would argue to NOT implement VR support in a genre that specifically makes perfect sense for it. Same goes for game exclusivity. As a customer, there is ZERO benefit for a game to be available on only one platform, be it a single console, or a particular store on PC. It might not bother you. You might buy a PS4 to play RDR2, or God of War, and not care. But that doesn't change the fact that there is absolutely no benefit to a customer that these practices exist. None. It's purely business decisions that dictate how we purchase and use our entertainment products and as such, should be of no concern to the end user whether they support them or not.

I use the word 'customer' rather than 'consumer' for a very specific reason. I understand people might not care about using Epic game store for certain titles. Would you buy from there by CHOICE, or is it simply a matter of no bother because you are forced to do so? I wonder what the answer to that question is for the majority of people who support it. Just like when I have to go to multiple supermarkets to get the items I wish to buy, it's annoying, time consuming and in no way makes my shopping experience more enjoyable.

Sim racing titles should by now include VR support as standard. Any person that has even the slightest interest in driving games in general should not point their frustration at people voicing their opinion on others who choose not to support titles without VR support. Instead, ask developers why they continually attempt to do as little as possible and still expect to earn your money.
