    If it plays even on mobile devices then they should port it to PS VR and make real racing game for it.

    I'm guessing it will be a straight port, which means no Toyota.

    Even without Toyota though I would highly recommend the game so long as it runs well on the Switch. It's like playing GT or Forza with a proper career mode.

    GRID Autosport is pretty solid. Codemasters went back to basics after GRID 2's more arcadey handling and more glitz and glamor presentation did put me off a little bit. I find it interesting that this game got ported to i0S and Switch, but the PS4 and Xbox One never got a current gen iteration or even a remaster.

    I would liked to see a how a PS4 GRID would be like but Codemasters did put their focus on F1 and DiRT in this generation. Maybe a GRID for current gen consoles would've been falling to the wayside against the likes of GT Sport, Forza, and sims like Assetto Corsa and Project C.A.R.S

    Kinda hilarious on how they prioritize mobile device first than Switch.

    Just to show how far the mobile tech goes.

    Nah. Wasnt impressive back in the day and sure isnt today. Without wheel support, the Switch isnt meant to be for racing anyway.

    I like Grid Autosport a lot, played it a bit recently as it’s now backwards compatible on Xbox. Still looks and plays very good.

    I would buy a Switch for this but isn’t Switch missing analogue sticks buttons needed for racing?

    PSVR would be brilliant

    Last great thing from Codemasters was TOCA.

    Not my cup of tea, but nice to hear that Switch owners will get a decent racing game.

    Pretty cool game, MUCH better than Grid 2.
    With that said, I feel like this game has the slowest progression of any racing game I’ve ever play: and I BEAT Metropolis Street Racer AND Enthusia.

    Posted these in the Switch thread the other day.

    First Grid Autosport screenshots! Looks pretty good visually.

    There are no analog triggers -- though I have no idea if Autosport would support the Gamecube controller adapter. But that's not the problem it's made out to be if you ask me. Few racing games even demand careful throttle control, and the ones that do could still be played with the dampening you'll get with digital button inputs. Having played this game on XB360, I know it certainly would not be a problem.

    If you like, you could play using the right stick for the throttle and brake. The analog sticks on the included Joy-cons are a bit small and weird as a sacrifice for portability (and presumably sturdiness), but the Pro controller is excellent and a must-have depending on how big your hands are. :)

    It was an okay game, but it never really did rise above that level. A solid C+.

    I might get it if it's less than $30 CAD. I doubt it though, what with Switch games being way more expensive than games on other platforms.
