Wow, are people still crying over this? Things really are getting desperate when you start comparing to games like Ace Combat and FIFA... To be quite honest, I'd rather they didn't bother with cockpits at all, but there you go, not every game is going to be to my exacting standards.I already knew GTA4 had modelled cockpits...especially the police cruiser.insane that it does.yip,Ace Combat also has cockpits haha.I bet,theres a higher chance Fifa 12 is going to have cockpit view than those standards.frankly,if time was an issue and they couldnt include the black frame one,I wouldve rather them not make go karts and do 800 black frame interiors.
Ultimately, this game is going to suffer somewhat because of this disproportionate (in terms of car count) Standard/Premium split, and I do understand how people are "upset" by the lack of generic black frame/cockpit view. If one isn't there at launch, one will become available via DLC I'm sure, that way the "ugly duckling" can be adopted only by those who want it! I can think of loads of negatives that this split introduces, but I just look at the positives:
- Think of the 800 standards as bonus cars on top of the already large number of 200 premiums. These represent the history of GT and I'm sure we'll all find some of our old favourites in there to make us smile.
- All cars have the same physics engine
- All cars use the same audio engine (a debatable benefit!)
- All cars have mechanical damage
- All cars have basic superficial damage
- I always race using Bumper Cam or Hood Cam, so lack of cockpits and visible damage is of little consequence to me (at least while racing)
