    Good on him. :tup:

    He should be remembered when people complain of the unfair disadvantage that DS4 or cockpit mode users have.

    I'll keep my eye out for this guy. Would be a pleasure to compete against him!

    Shows what we take for granted when it comes to gaming. Kudos to him still enjoying the game.

    It actually looks more intuitive than using hands.

    Highly demotivating actually. You put in all this effort to be as fast as you can, then get beaten by a guy who can't use his arms or legs :banghead: :lol:

    Seriously though, awesome and great for him :tup:
    Kudos to the controller makers :bowdown:

    Yeah it's a shame. Especially Microsoft who have more money than both, proclaim inclusiveness and all that. It's good to see how Sony and Polyphony treat their fans of all stripes. Kudos to them for being innovative and caring.

    Microsoft makes a controller for those with handicaps. It's even a part of a current marketing program.



    Edit: It also appears the device he is using isn't made by Sony or PD, so not really sure why they are getting credit for anything besides highlighting his dedication to GT (which is certainly admirable and worthy of recognition).

    I thought I had it hard as a disabled GT Sport player... Obviously not because I can still use my hands:boggled: What a guy; honestly. To still be able to play the game he loves despite the terrible circumstances is great.

    He finds his own way to play (and be good!) even if he can't play.
    What's your excuse?

    My comment was based on a meme.
    Meaning that everything's possible. What's your excuse on I can't do that?

    For example there was a pic with a man with only one leg, working out and being a beast. Under the pic was this what's your excuse text.

    Depends on the size of your screen, a 50" 4K in cockpit is a big advantage IMO

    This is really great to see. My son has hemipelgia on the right side of his body. He can't really use his right hand at all nor move his right ankle/toes yet. He suffered a stroke at birth and we do PT almost every day. Great to see this tho!

    Microsoft is thinking about it, especially with racing games: https://www.gtplanet.net/special-olympics-announces-first-esport-tournament-features-forza-7/

    It also has this specially built controller too: https://www.gtplanet.net/microsoft-offers-maximum-accessibility-with-xbox-adaptive-controller/
