      Yeah, sadly there is a bigger push for console gaming over computer gaming these days. If it was on PC it would have just been a port, and creating an individual game for pc takes up development resources and money which these companies don't want to spend. Look at f1 2010 and dirt. The menus are terrible to navigate, and the only difference between the two's counterparts are higher graphics settings.

      Good news though, rFactor 2 is coming out soon and modders are already working on stock car racing for it alongside what is being released with the game. There is a current stock car mod called VHR for rFactor 1 which I am told is pretty good.

              Yes it is kind of offensive that these game developers forget the PC users and just cater to the console crowd!!!

                Oh. :icon_eek:

                In that case, I am sorry and apologize for "kind of" being offensive to you.

                The next time you have a problem with my choice of words (this has happened twice now), please feel free to PM me. I am a reasonable person and have no desire to overtly offend my fellow TG'ers. If you would prefer to not directly interact with me, feel free to contact the TG Administration and I am sure they will have no problem with dealing with my "offensive" words or manners.

                By the way, you insinuating that I am immature is offensive to me.

                With all of that said, let me rephrase my original reply to this thread:

                It's not going to be released for the PC?!

                Well, thats disappointing.


                Better? Can we now get back to the topic at hand?

                    Ok, moving on...

                    Codemasters is a big part of the reason we keep seeing more and more ports ever since Dirt came out, now other companies are copying the scheme. Though, i would do anything for a PC port of GT5.

                      A mod-able pc port of GT5 would be a dream come true.

                        Re: NASCAR 2011 Delayed

                        Yeah, for me the biggest shame about something like GT5 is that after they go to all the trouble of modeling and configuring the physics for, say, a BMW 330i, they don't see the obvious step of making a 325i, a 320i, a 320d, etc. The models are virtually identical, as is the handling, all they need is a different torque map.
                        Same thing for all the cars. Every Gran Turismo I've played, I always end up wanting to race my Camry against my coworker's Trailblazer and my mother-in-law's Mazda3, y'know?

                        Pretty off topic by now, sorry :)

                            I don't know if that license would give them total access to their brand. I think NASCAR teams might sell iRacing content, much like the Williams F1 Team did by releasing their car.

                            There will always be a market for arcade style racing games, they know that you can't expect the general population to go and subscribe to iRacing, or to play stock cars in rFactor because of the amount of detail both games have related to driving and tire physics. Currently doesn't GT5 have a license to use NASCAR content?

                              Yes, complete with ridiculously over effective slip streaming
