Since the forum doesn't seem to support polls I will make a manual one since I'm curious what system people here will play Project CARS 2 on. Please select an option from below and copy/paste it in a reply without more comments. No offtopic chitchat at all please, just copy/paste and go.

note: If you switch systems shortly after the release of Project CARS 2 then only mention the system you plan to switch to. For example since the XBox One X is only available from November on I will either play it on my standard XBox One or my PS4 Pro for the first 2 months (not decided yet). Once the X is available that will be my main (and only) Project CARS 2 system.


Q: which system do you plan to play Project CARS on?

1 - high end PC
2 - mid range PC
3 - low end PC
4 - PS4 standard
5 - PS4 Pro
6 - XBox One standard / XBox One S
7 - XBox One X (formerly known as XBox Scorpio)


Poll results :

* updated until post 140 *

high end PC - 27
mid range PC - 23
low end PC - 4
PS4 standard - 21
PS4 Pro - 15
XBox One standard / XBox One S - 4

Well this was more about how capable is a system to run the game. You could split up consoles also into controller or wheel but that is more peripherals, like the VR and multiple screens. Could be another poll though, feel free. :)

The poll I made is more about the game versions, obviously there are 3 versions for the 3 systems but SMS already hinted the PS4 Pro and XBox One X will have a different version than the base consoles. I just split PC into 3 parts also based on performance out of curiosity.

Well, #2 implies #3...

Whichever the case I can do all of them.

In reality though, I don't think I can go back to anything but VR wrt to sim racing. I just can't (except for testing pC2 - when I have the time... :( )

I started PC1 on the XBox One and eventually switched to the PS4 and haven't looked back. Very happy with the overall experience and better wheel/pedal selection. I'm sure PC2 will meet and probably exceed my experience found in PC1.

breyzipp

Updated until here. Some remarks:

- I have no clue what PC specs are anno 2017 so its best that you decide yourself if your machine is low/mid/high end! Of the 3 spec lists posted I put 2 in high end and 1 in mid range.
- If it's undecided between 2 different platforms I'll not add anything.

Still a bit early to make conclusions. In a nutshell it's 11 players on PC, 5 on PS4 and 5 on XBox.

I'm planning to build a gaming PC, so I guess that fits into your high end class? Seems like the user experience for PCars1 was much better on the PC so I'm going to reserve the Xbox for stuff like Madden.

Once started with VR you won't go back anymore. Same for me. I do love VR so much. Racing in VR is much nicer to do. And I'm on Farpoint atm with the Aim Controller. A shooter is so much more fum this way compared to the old fashion way with the dualshock controller in 2D..
VR rules....

I wish a could say the same. I had the Oculus Rift CV1 and sold it after a few weeks of testing. The feeling and immersion is absolute stunning.

But i have to major problems with VR. The first and biggest is that it gets very uncomfortable the more i play. 3 Laps Nordschleife and i was sweating like a pig under the glasses because it becomes very hot. This is my main reason for reselling. The second is the poor resolution. The details in the far distance are really bad and because of that i had also problems to hit the apex.

Conclusion: VR now is a nice experience but not really sophisticated. Maybe i will give it a try with the next level of evolution.

To bad to hear.. In the beginning I suffered some motion sickness but I grew over it. No more motion sickness for me. The lower res is not a big deal for me. Dirt vr is so much fun.

Ok since we're a bit off topic with the VR.
How does that work with a controller? I think it would be a bit awkward no?
Might consider it at some point if I can play it that way.
PS - reason for not with a wheel is a knee injury in case you wonder.

Works like a dream. You use the controller just like in any driving game but you are seeing a full 3D world. You can place the car EXACTLY where you wish it to go. Look at the apex and steer. It is so natural.

Good racer I met recently and raced with several times has had a shoulder reco (iirc) or some arm/shoulder injury.
Doctor has prescribed him many months off work and sim racing as rehabilitation and recovering strength.
Spends long days on pcars tracks on ps4.

For me, this is a tricky one. I will be getting an xbox one x on launch so that i have the best version of the game on a console. But on release of the game i shall have to put up with the worst version of the game on Xbox one. So i may not buy the game until the xbox one x appears.

PS4 also for me... it came out so well in ProjC1 and runs extremely well

I think that there still is a target of 60fps however certain things probably bog it down a bit like last time.

breyzipp

updated until here

Interesting to see that most PS4 users will be standard, most XBox users will be X1X. But then the difference between XBox One and X is also far bigger than that of PS4 and PS4 Pro. Probably the reason most XBox One users plan to upgrade.

The format diversity is roughly estimated about 50% PC and 25% for PS4 (both) and 25% XBox One (both).

Remember that if you start playing like me on the XBox One but switch to the XBox One X once that is out, I only add you to the XBox One X.

People who play on both PC and a console I added twice since they will also be buying the game twice (or getting it via WMD).

Can I change my votes if I already posted before?

Yes but reply also with the info of what I need to deduct your previous vote from. For example "switch me from PS4 to XBox One".

PC. Dunno if its considered High end or Not but its a Beast. See sig for PC specs.

also will play on XBox1

Can any 1 tell Me what would be the diff if i buy Pcars 2 through Steam VS buying it through MS??? I like that Steam updates the Games and the Steam friends list.... I dunno if i can use My steam friends list or how Pcars updates will work if i get it from MS --> Ex: Will i have to wait for MS to release Console updates on PC as well??? Steam game Updates are usually released long before console updates .. But getting it through MS i get PC and XB1 copy....Im trying to be cheap and Not buy 2 copies:p

This won't be possible with Project CARS 2 for sure.

Microsoft's "Play Anywhere" only works with a select number of games, mostly in-house developers. For example I bought Forza Horizon 3 digital from the XBox Store and then I could also freely install and play it on my Windows 10 PC. And my account synced between both platforms, pretty nice to see. But the Windows 10 version is just an "app" for Windows 10 then, it has nothing to do with Steam for PC.

Project CARS 2 is not multi-platform in any way. You have the 3 main versions for PC, XBox One and PS4. If you buy it digitally from the XBox Store, you don't get the PC version for free with it. Also, if you buy PCARS 2 through steam then there is no affiliation with Microsoft whatsoever. I don't even know if you can buy it for PC from the Microsoft Store.

So if you want to play it on XBox and PC, you will need to buy the game twice and your progression on one platform doesn't carry over to the other, it will be 2 completely separated games.

^^Thanks for clearing that up, that's exactly what I originally thought. Then I read that post and thought maybe there was some announcement that I missed.

Going to the MS Store, PCARS 2 shows "Available for: Xbox One". So it looks like if you want the PC version, Steam is your only option.

Interested to know whether this time will be more players on PC. I know many folks are already making the transition to compatibles , because they either ended up tired of paying xboxlive or the always terrible playstation network, or for the other many reasons that in the end make of the console version the poorest choice.

I don't think so. The numbers of players on PC will be higher than in Project Cars 1, but I think the share in the overall amount of player will get even smaller due to even more sales on PS4, PS4 pro, X-Box one, X-box one S and X-box one X.

So many systems. Cross play is the way to go. Problem is the companies may think otherwise. Look at $ony persistent negatives to adopt it, and M$ forcing you to go W10 in order to play crossed, and this on windows games only for now.. the heck

In fairness, Sony has done cross platform in the past. Specific examples are the Portal games and at least 1 edition of Final Fantasy.

They really clamped down on it after the 2011 hack that took down PSN for a week. That cost them a LOT of money, and is also what triggered their hardline approach towards preipheral devices.

Can't really blame them for their desire to protect their infrastructure, customers, and profits.

This is the same reason why MS is limiting their support to W10 platforms and apps from their Windows store. They are taking the same approach as Apple has taken with iOS. It's a "closed" ecosystem which they can control. Thereby they reduce their risk to their infrastructure, and therefore risks to their revenue/profits.

Any time one of these services suffers an outage due to a hack, customers demand compensation. That costs the service provider millions and even billions. As a result, they lock it down. You and I would both do exactly the same thing if it directly impacted our wallets.
