Man if only the xbox1 had triple screen abilities this seems like it would crush all. I do hope there are some boring FWD cars though.

I have my doubts that this will ever be released. Been hearing about it for almost two years now! And it appears that it will not be released on the 360, so, I probably won't get it at all.

Yeah, from what I read, you need a really high end PC to get the most out of the game. I'm not sure that will be an option for me. It does look to be a premo game though.

you always need a high end PC for gaming, prob more than you would spend on a next gen console

True, but you can do iracing with a moderately priced PC. You may not get the most out of it, but it is sufficient. If all else fails, that is probably the direction I will go. Hopefully FM4 will live on for a while. I still enjoy it!!

Mako some of us will be running FM4 for quite some time as its all still pretty new to me. We need another weekday evening series again so we can battle it out some more.

Sure you can do iRacing but you have to pay £10 for a track or car. That's a lot of money, most decent series want you to pay to enter. The money you'd save on upgrading a PC (Which is nowhere near as much as people assume) would easily disappear into iRacing instead and you wouldn't even have the power to run beautiful games like P Cars. If this is a viable option for XB1 may tempt me into it.

Which is why I haven't moved to iracing. I already pay for Xbox live, I don't want to pay for anything else.

And yes JVan, I look forward to meeting you on the track again. I enjoyed our battles in the rivals series, brief as they were......

To be honest if the game is even half as good as it looks I will be going PC for this game. I have been slowly piecing together a triple screen PC setup from Pawnshops and thrift stores. I need a new TV and don't have an XBOX1 so its either $1100 on a new TV, XB1 and crappy wheel setup. or put that towards a triple screen PC with a proper proven wheel and pedal combo. If you take your time and keep your eyes peeled you can build a used PC for dirt. Only thing to spend big bucks on are the graphics cards.

Let me get this clear. The main reason for not getting FM5 is because Project Cars is coming? This seems to have passed down to a PC V Console debate. Back around the days of a PS2 one had to make a decision whether to stick with a PC simply because logically it was more superior to a console back then (and I certainly had some heated discussions on the topic) Then however the graphics cards and memory plus the knowledge on how to utilise this power was below most peoples understanding of a PC thus it was simplified by newer consoles. Once they added simplicity to the power everything went up a notch, this is why a console now can give you as good if not better graphics than a PC. Keep in mind that a budget PC these days is $500 with amd graphics now upgrade to be suitable (Best High-End Graphics Cards: $500 To $800. ) plus extra memory then the controls as a keyboard and mouse is useless for racing. At a minimum your looking at $2500 for a DECENT set up. With most homes having a large flat screen in the lounge most with a whoop de do 7 channel sound system attatched it just seems simpler to spend $700 on a console and bring all that power together for an amazing system that the whole family can enjoy. But if you still live at home in the safe confines of your bedroom and the folks are backing your spending habits, by all means go for the PC triple screen set up,that you can't really share because your room is off limits to the rest of the family or you have a flat by yourself. It's not a lot of fun watching someone in a simulator set up unless your in line for a go yourself, but the owners are scared you'll bugger up their set up so often visitors are off limits. I'm still a controller racer simply because even a wheel is out of my budget let alone a shifter or TRIPLE screen. I stick with my console and eagerly await Project Cars. Is the site name going to change so that lobby's can be created for members here to race in or will we have to join yet another site just to race?

well xbox one is the way forward for me.

Im enjoying playing FM5, until Project CARS comes out. Yeah, you can't gift, but it's easy to get around that problem.

It's still the same racing, The cars go forward when you hold the RT in etc etc lol

Forza 5 is sick game the only thing I think that lets it down is some of the tracks that ant in it but defo project cars guna be good 2 but just guna be like forza good and bad points but I think people should come xbox and stay away from ps4 and p.c not for bad resons just so we can all play xbox together cuz think majoritie of people dont quote me but have xbox if you see where I comin from Smile)))) mad dog loves road america haha :Smile)))))
