I hope this is true. I really want to give it a spin before spending 60 euros on the damn thing.

Been playing the beta for what feels like forever now. Glad more folks can try before they buy. Still not 100% sold on the game but I'll likely be there day 1 anyway.

I wish they let us test VR portion, the only reason to get GTS for me.
I mean, it's very easy to imagine what it would be like in VR. You just sit in the car cockpit.

VR is also the main selling point for me, but if I can just play the game itself and check out the handling, it'll be very easy for me to mentally extrapolate that to the VR experience. Essentially the same thing, except blurrier, more immersive and with only 1 other car on the track.

Cool, I've still got the Beta installed, hopefully they just update that and I don't have to download another version.

Seems like a decent demo and I'm guessing they want to do a last minute stress test on servers before launch, probably a good thing, as they don't need any online problems at launch, as it will hurt the game.

Closes beta was great.

I can't wait to play the full release, but sure, I'll play this also.

Having not got into the closed beta this is great. I've currently got the game ordered but I'm still a little unsure. Will be good to get my wheel out again.

Open Beta that will happen in just few days and this is still a rumour? I hope we won't need invitations for this secret open Beta.

I am angry because I waited so long to be invited in the closed beta but didn't get any invite.

Well this sucks. I won't be able to hop on my PlayStation for a few weeks and would love to check this out.
