    Project Cars 2 charts at #2 - But UK sales down 72%

    I've just noticed a few snippets of information filtering through that if true is a huge shame for both SMS and a the future of the Xbox online community. But you know, gamers aren't as compulsive as they used to be when purchasing games nowadays and SMS didn't exactly make it a difficult decision when presenting people with the choice of which racing game to take forward, so if truth be told those figures (if correct) aren't entirely unexpected.
    I suppose the only saving grace is that now FMS7 is upon us news is also filtering out that it too isn't exactly the game people were expecting so if nothing else we can all smile wryly at those who thought the grass would be greener on the other side. But let's not escape the fact that October is now upon us and all that hope and expectation of the previous few months has pretty much descended into a choice between commercialised nonsense that lacks key features or a game that doesn't work properly.

    Deep down did we really expect it to any different?

    I would imagine that a lot of people are holding off and waiting for a more stable product, and not sucking it and seeing after the initial problems we had with PC1. However I still went for it on day one and so far pleased with purchase.

    I for one am chips in for PCARS2. FM7 was the first game not preordered limited/ultimate edition since FM4 for me including the horizons. It was clear which way franchise is going since FM4. I made excuses, I equivocated... this year after putting in PCAR1 and giving it a whirl in August that SMS is moving in the right direction and that I would support them instead.
    It's hard leaving your favorite game in the dust. But honestly... after some fixes this game is everything I want in Motorsports game -tracks, racecars, Indy, PWC it's brilliant. Just not working best on Xbox yet.

    Since I am moving away from T10 might move to Computer and ditch the other issues. I don't really need Xbox if not doing Forza or halo anymore.

    The daft thing is after the debacle launch of pc1 you would have thought the launch of pc2 given it was a week from.forza should have been perfect (not that any launch is ) but as perfect as it could be
    Forza by all accounts isn't perfect and SMS had a chance ableit a slim one of really.making In roads on forza sales but they didn't

    I preordered the limited edition pc2 and after an hour or so on launch day for personal reasons I missed a week and currently don't have the heart to play at least until a patch comes out or my one x comes (which ever comes first )

    If there is a pc3 it may be pc only

    Well after a full week of PC2 I can honestly say it’s the best racing game I’ve ever owned and played. So those people waiting and not playing it are simply just missing out.
    This is coming from someone who’s lost all his career after 4 days of graft getting to the last tier, but the games that good, it just meant I could do it all again.
    Even the 2nd time around it was still as awesome as the 1st time.
    The games got absolutely everything you could want in a racing game and should definitely come with an addiction warning.
    Happy days!!

    I am not 'missing out'. I have both FM7 and PC2 and I like both.
    Only PC2 deletes my career progress and FM7 doesn't. So bye bye PC2 with all its bugs.

    I've actually uninstalled PC2 because the more i played it the more i realised i shouldn't be playing it. FMS7 isn't an option since finding out T10 have completely removed the class leaderboards in rivals (Ultimate pre launch edition) so for the time being i'm quite happy thundering around the ovals in Heat 2 until something more concrete emerges from Team SMS

    Forza 7 has some minor issues that need patching and the online public lobbies are a demolition derby, ATM. And there are many aspects of PC2 that absolutely trump a Forza game.

    Albeit, there is a vast difference between a game with minor issues and a game that cannot even be played. I can at least play the first while waiting for patches. The other would just sit on the electronic shelf and not do anyone any good. As I said, this is a very unfortunate situation for all of us. Nobody is the winner here.

    I see to remember seeing this one earlier. Wasn't this only based on physical copies sold?

    I almost did the same thing - ie: abandon xbox for pc. Only thing that kept me for at least another year is the xbox one X. I wanted to go to 4k but cost of video card alone is the price of the X and I'd like an X anyways so figured I'd stay with Xbox another year. I do wish they would allow PCars cross play between Xbox and PC. Maybe we'll get lucky and see that happen.
