    Logitech support but no Fanatec support? Hope this isn’t a sign of what we’ve got to look forward to from first party studios!

      When has Fanatec ever been a licensed peripheral maker for PS or MS by the way? To my knowledge I have never seen that and they usually ride on having comparable drivers as Logitech G25/27 wheels. Honestly I have never seen any Fanatec wheels that have been licensed for use on PS3/360.

      Fanatec has written drivers for the PS4, it’s up to the developer to add support in game. So far Fanatec support on PS4 extends to Project CARS, and F1 2015. Hopefully more future racing games follow suit.

    Look at all of those new cars. Take a whiff of that new car smell, Kaz. What was that? You don’t know anything?

      Driveclub, (nice game).. I wish they would create Motorstorm instead anyway.. or something even more insane, stunt game or offroad rally “DAKAR”…

      @Craze63AMG The Crew has the R34 which is another GT-R model. I’m pretty sure you’re confusing the R34 with the R35 which is what the whole topic is about and the R35 isn’t in The Crew.
