Here is a question and answer that I have been waiting for since I have been gaming. No offense, but when I see controllers keeping up or surpassing wheels (in the same hands) in any racing game, I automatically discount the game as not being a SIM (e.g. there has never been a SIM on the console). I understand the marketing and logic behind wanting to make pad users happy, but I have been longing for at least ONE game to be a real SIM. Here is a question and answer from Yorkie (a PC user, who has played on the console, and has played many many multiplayer games in pCARS). This is the answer to my prayers, at least if he is right. Q: Nick Roberts 16 hours ago Hi Yorkie great racing you are very fair to the other drivers my question is I know driving with a wheel is more realistic as I have had a few but I am more comfortable with a controller do you think people using the console editions will compete with the PCs version when on track together ie Xbox One. A: Yorkie065 12 hours ago +Nick Roberts I'm going to assume you mean playing with a controller on PC rather than consoles and PC's playing together, as you can't do the latter. It will be very very tough. The amount of fidelity and accuracy you can get in this sim with a wheel over the controller is big, you can probably keep up for a bit if you're good, but you're potentially going to run into issues with tyre temperatures and tyre wear. This game is designed for the wheel with the functionality there for controllers. Your speed and driving experience will be limited compared to a wheel. ___________________ So, you may be thinking "well, they will change this for the consoles and make it easier to control the cars with the pad." However, having played both versions, Yorkie thinks otherwise: Q: Dougla Don 8 hours ago Yorkie. Quick question mate. Will the PS4 version have the same features and quality as it's PC counterpart? Have not seen any recent footage of an example. Only PC. A: Yorkie065 7 hours ago consoles and pc versions are identical. Only difference is grid sizes in mp (maybe sp too but still very big grid sizes) and wheel support. obviously slightly lower graphics but that's expected, and both consoles are apparently running 1080p @ 60fps.
