I'm interested, as it's one of the first Next Gen racers I've heard about, but I'm curious what they'll do with team racing. It wasn't all that in PGR4, and doesn't bring the same satisfaction solo racing does.

Something about how it looks looks.. off.. to me. It almost looked like the lighting didn't do the rest of the game's detail justice. Looks really real in some places and gamey in others.

BAC Mono in a game though :3

It was nice to see the guy being so enthusiastic about this.

I thought these graphics were just too much. I'd get this game just to look at it. I liked the weather/time/season thing.

BAC Mono is also in the latest Need for Speed game, too. :p

Before the guy hopped on the car I thought that the head movement was very realistic, obviously it went static once inside but I hope that they change this.

Really enjoyed this (and dude's enthusiasm). Love that they're going full first-person too, hope it works out for them. The core racing fan should love that at least, and that will be the target early on, I suppose.

The stopgap game till GT6 comes out.

This kinda reminds what Test Drive Unlimited was trying to do, but just did not work due to poor netcode and car handling / gameplay mechanics overall.

Must agree with everyone else who said it does look fantastic though. Will wait to see the announcement of what cars will be in the game though.

Shame, I would have preferred another Motorstorm. Not a fan of racing sims. Anyways, isn't this too similar to GT? Cannibalizing fans and all that.

Love that attention to detail and ability to open everything in the car. Koenigsegg engine bay moment, with all those closing animations and proper hand placing on things...

But I'm still not sure, if it's going to be more on pure arcade side or closer to something like PGR?

He obviously likes cars. Kaz would be like that too if he didn't have translator san.

This is the best thing for me that was shown at the press conference. A racing game from Evo using licensed cars with extreme detail sounds great to me. This game is giving me a lot of PGR 3 vibe back when the 360 was being announced and I played the hell out PGR 3. Hopefully this will be a launch title for the PS4 because I really want to play this game.

It looks as good as Project CARS... and this is just the start of the generation.

GT6 is going to be absolutely insane as long as they don't pull that standard/premium thing again.

As i've said before, this is what Need for Speed should have been a long time ago. Of course it's too early to call it, but it feels like it captures the old NFS feel from the 90's. Arcade racers are still viable, if done right.

This will be a great game if they nail the handling of it.

I like GT a lot, and i can surely like a game like this.

Loved the presentation.

The presenter had a car fetish that scared me. Otherwise I can get behind the idea of the game, expanding the autolog feature set EA has came to use and built in the 'team' aspect a lot of racing fans had to do themselves outside of the game world on other titles like Forza.

I'll wait to see more of the actual gameplay though, see how much effort went into the racing compared to the structure. Seems as though Sony doesn't repeat the GT5-delay situation so held off announcing GT6 for now, and filled the gap with Drive Club.

Aesthetically wise it looked good but I was slightly disappointed when you consider how much racing titles often push the visuals... I cannot wait to see what Turn 10 and Polyphonic especially have to offer us next gen.

I was secretly hoping this was a Midnight Club iteration.

The surroundings are amazing!

Sweet IQ, though i have to admit its not far removed when compared to pcars in its current state.

But, just show me GT6 already!

Spotted a RUF logo so Porsche is out. Promising selection of cars, nice to have an alternative taste of roster on the PS platform.

Fantastic variety of car sounds, Evolution delivers where PD flurps. Curious to know if any asset sharing has taken place. Models, shaders etc…

The road marking around the corner is kinda low poly.

But urm, yep looks nice enough.

Well I'd hope so, it would be absurd not to. But you never know what kind of silly pride issues and infighting might arise. Then again, some in house competition could be a good thing.
