    Fanatec CSL DD: Entry Level, $350 Direct Drive Wheel

    As above, Mclaren rim cannot be used with this base according to the fanatec site and you'd also need pedals, so we're up to 801 euro + VAT. 801 euro is 690 GBP + VAT = 828, not including shipping or duty. Its going to be cheaper to buy from the UK site. I didn't say it was an entry level gear...

    Fanatec CSL DD: Entry Level, $350 Direct Drive Wheel

    According to the product page, it isn't compatible with the Mclaren wheel - Podium, Clubsport and CSL wheels only. My point was that this isn't really a competitor for the logitechs/thrustmasters as was discussed earlier in the thread. imho they need a product at around half the price of this...

    Fanatec CSL DD: Entry Level, $350 Direct Drive Wheel

    So for all the fanfare about low prices this is still more or less a grands worth of kit I think? Base & 8nm power suply £480 Cheapest wheel £350 CSL pedals £80 Load cell for the above £TBC So maybe £950. Add to that the playstation tax for that version. If fanatec want to tempt people away...

    Gran Turismo 7 Confirmed to also launch on PlayStation 4, is a cross-gen title

    Oh in the wider world there are shortages. But in the case of the PS5, they've outsold the PS4 and demand is still huge. Ignoring chips do they (and their suppliers) have the capacity to fulfil that demand ? I'm dubious. Either way, its clear that the PS5 doesn't need "console seller" games...

    Gran Turismo 7 Confirmed to also launch on PlayStation 4, is a cross-gen title

    Reality is there is no shortage of chips for PS5. What they have is huge demand for the thing, far far more demand than there was for PS4 (which PS5 has outsold, even with the apparently limited supplies). My guess is that ignoring shortages they probably don't have the manufacturing capacity...

    Fanatec CSL DD: Entry Level, $350 Direct Drive Wheel

    I'd wait and see what appears for the PS5 version, given that all controllers/wheels on PS4 work on PS5 I'd say there is a reasonable chance it'll work on a PS4.

    Gran Turismo 7 Confirmed to also launch on PlayStation 4, is a cross-gen title

    Its quite funny when you think about it. For years people here have been bitching about PD and GT Sport not being a "proper" GT and how terrible it is that PD/Sony didn't make a "proper" GT game for PS4 generation just like the old games. Then GT7 for PS5 gets announced and there's a whole...

    Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online to Launch on PlayStation 5/Xbox Series November 11

    I offered an alternative viewpoint than "hurr durr game is dead" and suggested that it is still quite social if you play in a certain way. Hanging around in freeroam has never been sociable, ever. So now you're going to claim I was looking for an argument ? really ? its you thats been tryng to...

    Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online to Launch on PlayStation 5/Xbox Series November 11

    Christ you've got some ego haven't you ? I couldn't give a toss how many events you've run. All I said is that my recent and current experience of the game doesn't match your assertions, somehow you've turned that in to arguing with you and doing it wrong ? Maybe if you weren't so pompus you'd...

    Fanatec CSL DD: Entry Level, $350 Direct Drive Wheel

    Starting to feel like by the time you've bought the base, wheel, the new pedals + brake load cell upgrade and the uprated power supply this isn't really going to be any cheaper than other DD wheels - at least not significantly so ? It'd be interesting to know the cost difference between the...

    Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online to Launch on PlayStation 5/Xbox Series November 11

    What I've been trying to point out to Marcus that he seems totally unable or unwiling to understand is that the game can be socialable. As I said I've got a group of friends I play with regularly and we also regularly play against other individuals and crews. Freeroam has always been a warzone...

    Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online to Launch on PlayStation 5/Xbox Series November 11

    I don't see whats funny. I've got a small group of friends that make up a crew (incidentally, I met them through the game), there are a few other people as well that we regularly do race playlists with. But if you're determined to hate the game, thats up to you - just trying to point out that...

    Gran Turismo 7: Latest news and discussion thread (Delayed)

    I'd love to know how you know what PD/Kaz think and that they took action on that. I still don't understand the aloof, smarmy attitude to GT that some people around here have.

    Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online to Launch on PlayStation 5/Xbox Series November 11

    It was ever thus though, on PS3 people were using hacks to give players millions, shoot them and disappear, wall glitches to hide in and kill others, people roaming around in tanks etc. Whenever I venture in to public sessions (usually to find an empty one to sell stuff) there are always lots...

    Did SPORT ruin Gran Turismo?

    If GT Sport had been another GT6 esque release but updated for PS4 hardware there would have been a whole bunch of bitching. Lets be honest, 6 was pretty dire and 5 wasn't much better. GT Sport was a decent step up from those imho.
