Popular on PC in terms of sales vs. GT6? Not a chance, not even in the same ballpark. If they make several hundred thousand sales on pc it'll be huge. The online community on the other hand would probably rival or exceed GT6 as it's a highly focused racing game and most of the lobbies will be focused strictly on circuit racing. In Assetto Corsa for example, I've never seen a drag/drift/cruise room ever in the 4 months I've had the game, every single room is circuit racing. People who buy Project Cars on pc are buying it to race and the entire community is focused on that one thing. There will be leagues galore on various sim racing communities.I have some thinking to do. Do I buy a PS4 and a new wheel or a gaming PC and drive the G27. I really want a Clubsport V2 wheel and pedals set. I do not have time for any other video games. I pretty much race in real life, watch real life racing or play Gran Turismo. So I really don't need a PS4 for other games.
Do you think that Project Cars will be as popular on PC as GT6 is on PS3? Will I be able to log on and easily find a room of people to race with?
I think there's a huge opporunity for tuning as well as I've read many times over that the stock tunes on cars are very safe and conservative and that tuning a car to race will pay huge dividends. I know in Assetto Corsa fine tuning pays off in spades and you can really make cars suit your driving style. And if the driving experience is as rewarding as Assetto Corsa or even in the same ballpark, it's light years ahead of GT6. Another bonus is that the PC and console version of the game are supposed to be identical except for a couple of different features like the livery editor, but the physics are the same. So tunes that work on PC should work on console and vice versa. A PC tune in theory also works on XBone and PS4.
Tuning is also real world, there are no upgrades or parts to add, no PP targets to hit, no unrealistic tires to slap on, no detuning etc. If you can tune it on the real car it's in the game. Street car tuning is relatively limited, race car tuning is extremely complicated. It's really a whole different world from the GT series.
Love the Glitch Tuning For Super Heroes by the way
