    The only thing I hope is that the full game allows proper offline saving of the game so that one can have access to the gained content when servers are in maintenance or the inet is offline!

    I too noticed this in the demo information on the PS4. The dollar sign confused me a bit. Haven't Polyphony always used credits as the in-game currency?

    Wondering if this is something new to be refered to as dollars or dollar credits or something.

    Credits have a somewhat direct correlation (1:1 ratio) to dollars (and later on to euros).

    In Asia the ratio is higher because PD uses the Yen as a base. Probably in Japan they will be able to transfer more than 1.000.000 credits - I'd guess 100.000.000 Cr.

    You haven't played always online games have you? You cannot save offline. The warning in the demo when it loads says so. Specifically. No online title I play allows any kind of offline save. At. All. Why do you think the last Need For Speed got so much stick for requiring an always on connection? Why do you think the dev's of the new one were so very quick to point out no compulsory online requirement for the new one?

    As the warning says. No online means Arcade Mode and NO SAVE.

    Hmmm,this is why I kept it vague in the article. Seems to be differing information in various places.

    We'll find out soon enough! :D

    Correct. No Save unless online. So if the servers are in maintenance, and in Destiny 2 that's once a week, you can't save. (Although in Destiny 2 that means you can't even play.)

    Wasn't it also confirmed in the blog for the game? The reasoning given that they had to be fair to all players?

    Not as far as I'm aware. It certainly said that being online was a requirement for "the majority of functionality" (for the stated reason of "fair racing for all"), which included keeping driver ratings, progress and 'car availability' updated - but nothing about being unable to save the game when offline.

    It may come to pass that you will need to be online to save the game, and the demo certainly seems to represent the finished game less a few items of content and structure, but for now all we know is that the demo requires it.

    Yes, I'm absolutely sure that in the demo you have to be online to save.

    Just as I'm sure you just made another absolutely thoughtless double-post.

    No you are not. You can hit reply. Copy the text in the reply box and then edit your existing post to include the new reply. Simples.

    This was my first thought, that it's a way to ensure everyone starts at the same time inasmuch as it's possible. A small patch can change that message and activate the save mode once the actual demo period starts.

    Is this demo a separate entity from the closed beta? Just want to delete the beta if it is, since its not playable anymore.

    this makes no sense releasing a demo so you can’t play it 2 days early for ps plus members and except watching random cars

    Are you saying you must be a PS plus member to play the arcade mode? This might explain why I can't even access that part of the demo

    It helps to spread the load on servers of people downloading. It also means that people can be ready to play as soon as the game servers get switched on. I don't see an issue really.

    Everything is seemingly under maintenance.
