Wii U more than capable of providing the Project CARS core experience

Project-CARS-07

Creative director Andy Tudor over at Slightly Mad had the following to say in regards to the Project CARS title currently in development at his studio.

 “The Wii U is more than capable of providing the core Project CARS experience.

Sure, some super-high-level graphical effects may not be possible but in comparison it also offers a unique interaction experience via the GamePad controller, with the second screen potentially becoming your track map overview, rear-view mirror, telemetry, or simply mimicking a real race car steering wheel whilst you use the gyroscope to drive.

Plus there are great possibilities to extend our existing WMD community into the Mii Community with discussion and sharing of content and ideas. There’s no realistic racing game on the Wii U currently yet, and we hear the fans crying out for one.

Project CARS provides a Forza or Gran Turismo-like experience for those gamers and it’ll be something to really show off what the system is capable of. From our internal playing, it’s looking extremely promising.”

Well, thats definitely some positive things being said in terms of the Wii U’s graphical capability as well as the innovation that this system has brought with it.

Andy Tudor seems to be honest about the Wii U and its graphical limitations, as well as highlighting the potential of the second screen, which is something we’ve all been dying to see used creatively in more games!

For those who don’t know much about this game, it’s definitely worth checking out (in 720p) the following video:

    Can’t wait for this game on Wiiu! The unique features sound brilliant and are exactly what makes the Wiiu so good.

    It’s just taking ages to come out…

    Edit- Notice he only says SOME SUPER HIGH LEVEL effects won’t be possible. To me that implies that SOME are capable and the high level effects are all capable, unlike PS3 and 360…. which is probably why they were canceled.

    They have the installed base advantage…

    • sharlo galmo

      Yesterday they say that they got problems with the PS4 CPU, it is to slow compared with a high end PC, that’s a proof that the WiiU CPU is not weak like someones thinks. Cause they never say that about the WiiU CPU. What i read about the WiiU version, is that they use direct x 11 features, shaders….

      • CEObrainz

        Do you have a source for that?

        • sharlo galmo

          What do you want? About the PS4 CPU? It was on a dutch site, can you read dutch? Maybe you can google it, cause it is on dutch what i have read.

          Or do you want to see what they say about the WiiU? That one you can read it hear http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Project-CARS-Wii-U-Features-Particle-Shadows-Multi-Threaded-Shadowing-59659.html

          • CEObrainz

            Both are very interesting reads, if you could link to the dutch one, I’ll see how far Google’s web page translations can take me. Thanks for the other link anyway.

          • sharlo galmo

            Youre welcome, her is the other site..http://www.gamed.nl/view/109686

            You can also translations this, this is what they say,

            Slighty Mad Studios werkt op dit moment aan Project CARS, een auto simulator die op het oog weg heeft van Forza en Gran Turismo. Vandaag heeft Creative Director Andy Tudor het over het werken met de PlayStation 4.Zo stelt hij dat het overzetten van de code naar de PlayStation zo zijn eigen problemen heeft, waaronder het moeten splitsen van al kleine taken naar nog kleinere taken. Dit zou volgens hem liggen aan de processor van de PlayStation 4. Hij vertelt dat 1 enkele processor kern van de PlayStation 4 nogal traag vergeleken is met een high end PC. Ook zou het kopieren van data naar het geheugen problemen opleveren.

          • CEObrainz

            Thanks, the page translated just fine I think:

            “He states that the transfer of the code to the PlayStation has its own problems, including the need to split all the little jobs to smaller tasks. This, according to him, are on the processor of the PlayStation 4. He says that one single processor core of the PlayStation 4 is rather slow compared to a high end PC. It would also copy data to memory cause problems. Project CARS is scheduled for 2014 for PC, Wii, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and SteamOS.”

            At any rate, I don’t think PS4 users will have anything to worry about, after all that’s why the PS4 has so many processors to share the load and have a fast collective speed.

          • sharlo galmo

            The PS4 is gonna doing fine, butyou can not compare it with high end PC, like some peeps do. And the PS4 only use 6 core for games, i have read that a couple month ago. The WiiU CPU is faster if you use it with the very fast EDRAM, that’s why they don’t have problem with the WiiU.

            Some peeps thinks that the WiiU is weak, but Iwata say it a couple times no it is not underpowered. Do you know Shin’en? I mail them, and the mail me back, they say about the WiiU CPU, that it is very very fast with the EDRAM, next year we gonna see what they can do. Fast Racing Neo with hyperreal graphics, can’t wait to see that game…..

          • CEObrainz

            Very true, I’ve known people that thought the PS3 was on par with PC’s. Most gamers are not always as informed as some of the more knowledgeable people you can find on this site. I can’t wait for that racing game either, if it looks anything like the current game they have on the eShop, it will be amazing.

          • sharlo galmo

            Indeed Nano assault is a beatyfull game, and that game only used the main CPU from the WiiU. Did you know that the WiiU got 2 different CPU’s? One for the operation system, and three for games etc. With Nano they only used the main CPU, and they did’nt need to make the game better, cause it looks good enough.

            And that’s why i am hype with the next game from them, 4 to 8k texture, gonna be awsome.

            Problem with lot of peeps are, that they believe everything they read, if you read8 gig ram and 8core CPU bla bla bla, the most peeps thinks woooow powerfull, but it is not that powerfull, but it is more easy to creat games for that kind of console. And peeps from those days hate Nintendo, so they never do research to now the treu.

          • DragonSilths

            Wii??? You meant Wii U.

          • CEObrainz

            It was a quote from the website mentioned above, it should say Wii U but doesn’t, a simple mistake.

      • Josiah Parsons

        Some devs were having trouble getting XBone/PS4 up to 1080p. Ouch.

        • DragonSilths

          Xbox One has issues, 1 main big issue is the damn 3 operating systems it has.

      • DragonSilths

        PS4 is harder to program for then the Wii U. Not as bad as the PS3 was. Though Xbox One is a disaster to program for. Seriously 3 operating systems for a console…stupidest decision ever.

        • James060394

          I’m surprised, apart from the OS they shouldn’t have any problems due to the PC architecture. The Wii U shouldn’t be too hard either, since it’s Gamecube/Wii hardware upgraded with more cores and higher clock speeds. But i don’t know how this industry works and i’m sure there’s more to it than that.

          • DragonSilths

            Wii U isn’t just a supped up Gamecube/Wii. It has its challenges. But if you can get Nintendo to give you a crash course on it then its not bad. A lot of indie devs have been assisted by Nintendo to learn how to make the most of the system.

      • Rich Garriques

        this has already been covered , wii u actually uses the best processor out of the bunch. ps4 and xbox one uses a laptop processor.

    • RecheDiazrivarola

      grand turismo 6 looks better,

      I am sure that wiiu can do better, much better.

      • Junior117

        This is pre-alpha build, so it’s going to be better overtime. Pre-alphas are never pushed for graphics but for the gameplay (including whatever engine they are using). But even for a pre-alpha, the graphics look great.

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        Wishful thinking never hurts.

  • Jack5221

    Forza and Grand Turismo have gone downhill for me, especially since their newest installments are gated by expensive micro transactions. Hopefully this game won’t have that because it looks like a lot of fun. I love the experience of racing games, flashy cars etc, but please no micro transactions. Paying to win sucks.

    • Josiah Parsons

      I think they said that you could sell other people custom racing liveries for real money or in-game currencies, and I doubt people will buy them for real money. I can’t wait to organize a team! *so epic*
      (Also, who downvoted this? Someone likes Microtransactions?)

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        Micro transactions work fine for some games, like free to plays. They can work in games like this if done right. For example, perhaps just for customizing cars and such. As long as it’s not pay to win. :P

  • Brandon

    yet square won’t even bring games to the wii u & deus ex does not count! people asked for tomb raider NOT deus ex! >=(

    • Nintedward

      I’m sure a lot of publishers are looking at the Wiiu’s recent turnaround and thinking ”Hmmmmm, maybe we should bee supporting this more”
      .The N64 and Gamecube got some decent support, so why not Wiiu? If they can make money they will do it.

      I think the Wiiu will be better next year. The more people who buy it this Christmas show it to their family’s and friends and it has like a domino effect.
      The Wii was an example of a massive domino effect. Once you saw somebody elses, you had to get your own.

      • Brandon

        I bet you that even when the install base gets bigger companies like capcom will drop support. FACT they only gave us niche franchises like monster hunter & stabbed wii u in the back! :(

        • Nintedward

          Capcom have been pretty good to Wiiu. Monster Hunter is exclusive to Nintendo right now, they’ve brought Resident evil,Monster hunter, ducktales, Monster hinter Frontier and a slew of VC games…

          Capcom have their own issues atm. Do you see any Mega man games on Xbox one or PS4? Mega man is in Smash bros…

          • Brandon

            wrong again loser!! wheres street fighter 4? (not the shitty 5th) wheres strider? wheres the big franchises!?!? wayforward did most of ducktails & crapcom wont even bring any fighters to wii u! oh and megaman is too niche to the point where nobody cares! :P in other words crapcom-shunning wii u since 2011.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Capcom is in a very shitty economical situation. I think thats the main reason we didnt see a SFIV. They cant afford the risk just now.

          • Brandon

            nope try again & yet they waste their resources on the stupid portable version? crapcom, that was a waste of money! >=( not to mention giving us the outdated street fighter 2! :p

          • Magnus Eriksson

            How is Capcoms economical situation then?

          • Brandon

            they are doing FINE DIPSHIT!

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Fine dipshit?

            That doesn’t sound very appetizing.

          • DragonSilths

            No they aren’t. They have enough money for 7 more big profile games, that’s it.

          • DragonSilths

            Your both right. Capcom is low on money, and doesn’t want to give us Street Fighter crap which is fine. Street Fighter 4 had what? 3,975 different versions?

            IGN?

            lol

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Why Capcom? They have always supported, and been one of those third parties popular on a Nintendo console.

        • DragonSilths

          Capcom wont leave Nintendo. Though all Capcom has left is Monster Hunter. Every other thing they have is junk. Dragon’s Dogma is okay, Megaman is dead, Street Fighter is shit. Capcom is low on money, they have enough left for 7 more “Big” games.

          • Brandon

            by that logic monster hunter is shit as tri has been milked! >=(

          • oontz

            Deep down looks SICK. But not coming to wiiu.

          • DragonSilths

            Havent seen much on it. But looks like a Dragon’s Dogma type game.

        • NkoSekirei

          i hardly doubt it cause monster hunter ultimate sold really well on the wii u making ur comment invalid and true capcom can be an @$$ at times but we still get dlc for free on MHU.

          • Brandon

            they made the same fucking game 3 times with monster hunter 3 tri! and 2 of them were fucking japan only! >=P plus capcom WILL leave nintendo! why? they hate wii u! :P plus sales=milked so shut up cunt! >=P so SHUT THE FUCK UP! >=P

          • NkoSekirei

            how about u stfu troll

      • Guest

        better next year? no it won’t because by then EVERY 3rd party dev would have dropped support. :p

        • Nintedward

          Nah, 3rd party support will get better and better in the next couple of years. FACT.

          • Brandon

            you people thinking wii u’s a 1st party only machine is why 3rd part devs will NEVER comer back! :P

          • Nintedward

            Where did I suggest that the Wiiu is 1st prty only?

          • NkoSekirei

            yea right dude the only reason why we havent got much 3rd party support because the devs are being lazy and wont take the risks like some 3rd party devs that do support the wii u and by the way im posting from my game pad

          • oontz

            “the only reason why we havent got much 3rd party support because the devs are being lazy”

            It has nothing to do with people being lazy. It’s a business decision made by the owners of a company. If devs were just being lazy then they would support the wiiu and just throw shovel ware at it all day long.

          • NkoSekirei

            im talking about the ones that bash nintendo and havent touch the wii u to know wat it can actually do and just put false statements that its underpowered which its not

          • oontz

            care to provide some factual evidence to back that up?

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Would be nice rather than just hearing the usual “developers are just being lazy” rants.

          • Rinslowe

            I thought there was a decent amount of third party support on Wii U since launch in actual fact…
            Those that claim Wii U is totally lacking third party support is as asinine as those that always claim dev’s to be lazy. Actually the majority of games released on the U from third parties which were missing features or lacking parity were because of limited budgets, small teams and other corporate decisions. Lazy I think is not the term I would use. I prefer to think of it this way; most dev’s are sitting at the shallow end of the pool – talking between each other while their feet splash about. Some are content to venture in waist deep while a small number have made their way to the deep end of the pool and have “gone all in” as Criterion aptly put it…
            Third Party never coming back? They never left, lol. They’re still there – not with every multiplat – but they are still present. Just not in a way gamers can really appreciate when considering investing hard earned dollars into a title better played elsewhere due to the reasons already mentioned.
            It’s a catch 22 in every sense…

      • Shigeru Miyamoto

        i thought tomb raiders ultra edition or whatever it’s called… was coming to Wii U? no?

    • WellWisher

      At the end of the day, Deus Ex is a better game. The Wii U version is awesome too.

      • Brandon

        people asked for tomb raider NOT dues ex! DO YOU HEAR ME!? >=P

        • WellWisher

          Pretty sure I’m a person. I bought Deus Ex. No way I would have bought Tomb Raider.

      • oontz

        Tomb raider was amazing.

  • gamesplayswill

    Sorry that this is off topic but I couldn’t find a relevant article:

    Today I went to a game shop called “Granger games” and they had no Wii U advertisements, and no Nintendo ads in general. I walked in and did the usual search for any cheap Wii/3DS bargains. I look over at the PS4 and Xbox One stalls and see at least 8 people queuing, trying to play the new consoles. I was about to walk out until I saw a vague white and blue glow in the corner of the shop. A Wii U stall. No one was lining up there, no one. I felt slightly annoyed that the fact the Wii U was “left out”, as per usual. So I decide I’d have a quick go on the NSMBU demo. People see me, speed-running the first level. Someone observes and waits behind me. I acknowledged this. When I stopped playing I turned around. Around 20 people were waiting to play! I was a little startled! I heard kids asking their mothers to buy them one. And I stood there, like the ultimate Nintendo boss.

    Yeah… carry on with the article

      Dude you were like the Power Glove in The Wizard. People were all like “I love the Power Glove it’s so bad” lol. Great job man it’s this kind of thing that will get people interested in the Wii U.

      I’ll take that story with a grain of salt. Interesting nonetheless. :P

      • Rinslowe

        Awesome?

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Upset?

          • Rinslowe

            Sorry? I don’t follow.
            :)

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Naturally.

          • Rinslowe

            Sorry, I don’t follow how you assume the possibility of being upset, LOL!…. Should I be? At least I didn’t think so…
            :)

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Whether you should or not means nothing to me. That’s up to you. So naturally, I’m amused on how a few words get people talking like it matters at all. Indeed, it is classic. :P

          • Rinslowe

            “Whether you should or not means nothing to me.”
            Oh Gonzalez ;(
            You so crazy!

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Exactly. It means nothing to me on what you think. How you react does since it amuses me. Kind of like how you did just now. Oh Rinslowe, how much you entertain me! :P

            All done for the sake of humor. :)

          • Rinslowe

            “Exactly. It means nothing to me on what you think.”
            Yes you are amusing!
            :)

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Awwwh….don’t be so upset, Rinslowe. It’s not healthy to look too deep into words. Shouldn’t take it that hard. I mean it’s not like I called you a poopyhead or anything. ;P

          • Rinslowe

            Why on Earth would you assume either? Hahaha :). I just find you amusing. That’s not saying much, is it?

            Oh Gonzalez, could you be genuinely crazy? lol.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Same reason you assume that I could be genuinely crazy? Is that not saying much? It’s a two way street my friend.

            Oh Rinslowe, could it be that you’re genuinely crazy? Or maybe we both are? Ooooor…..maybe I’m just a figment of your imagination? Perhaps vice versa? The possibilities are endless. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same about this comment. Good night now you crazy Rin you. :)

          • Rinslowe

            Lol!
            Sorry to have put you on the defensive.. It was just a question after all… you sensitive lad.

      Sounds surprising but I had a similar experience at a local Best Buy. People were going in playing the PS4 on Black Friday and not one was at the Wii U stall. So I thought to myself: Hey this is the right time to play a Super Mario 3D World Demo or a Wind Waker Demo. And so I proceed to play Super Mario 3D World. I played all 4 levels in the demos having so much fun and not really noticing my surroundings. Finally I arrive at the Hisstocrat Boss. Looking behind me I see kids, teens and other people are watching. So acting a like a badass I proceed to beat the Hisstocrat without losing the Cat power up. It take the gamepad. And hand it to the kid standing next in line. I didn’t want to sound weird but I couldn’t keep myself so I told the kid: Here you go. Now you’re playing with power. I stand by on the side just to see how everyone is doing and you could tell they were having fun with the Wii U.

      Felt a little sorry for myself since a mother asked me if I owned one since I was doing great at the game yet I told I didn’t but for video games this holiday, Wii U is the console to go for.

      • gamesplayswill

        Still, I was pretty amazed, I felt like I started some kind of legacy!

      • Relick

        Both your and gamesplayswill’s stories prove 1 thing. That the Wii U is the most fun console to play and just needs to be marketed immensely like the other consoles. The reason they were at the other stalls is because they were the consoles they had heard all about, it wasn’t because they thought they were the best.

      • C4

        “I didn’t want to sound weird but I couldn’t keep myself so I told the kid: Here you go.”

        It’s only weird if you said this in Charles Martinet’s high pitched fake italian accent Mario voice! :P

        • Suraj Alexander

          he didn’t just say “Here you go” his full quote was: “I didn’t want to sound weird but I couldn’t keep myself so I told the kid: Here you go. Now you’re playing with power”

      • Laud

        Strangely enough I had a similar experience except while some teens decided to wait in line their douche fathers were making fun of them for being, “little kids” telling them they were going to wait at the other lines.

        Non gamer people become fanboys for social status, makes me sad.

    • Rich Garriques

      hmmm , i guess some people just dont know good games. this is a great example of why nintendo needs to advertise a lot more

        Or Nintendo just doesn’t have the games that every gamer wants. Not all gamers like myself are going to go oooh and ahhhh for every Nintendo title. I do agree, though. They need to advertise more, especially on TV and not depend on word of mouth.

        No, I’m not a Nintendo hater. I just don’t think every game that hits the shelves is omg awesome. That goes for any game no matter which console. :P

        • Rinslowe

          “Or Nintendo just doesn’t have the games that every gamer wants.”
          Like you say, what platform does though right!? Hence the existence of fanboyism and console wars to begin with, lol.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Fanboyism and console wars was started by the media instigating it and it caught on. Lol. That cycle continues to this very day. Course the internet made it easier to spread around the world.

          • Rinslowe

            Actually fanboyism started the very moment someone began looking at the other platform with a green eye, lol. It caught on well before the internet was commonplace in most peoples homes etc… The media later sensationalised this phenomenon with the help of hardware manufacturers as a point of advertising and gaming magazines soon started to feed the fire. Internet as you mentioned – actually happened much later and indeed amplified it again…

        • ThisGuy18

          So does that mean you’re this pessimistic on all the other consoles’ sites too or just this one? XD

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I don’t see how saying Nintendo doesn’t have all the games that gamers want is being pessimistic. It’s called being a realist. Sorry if I’m not the type that goes all bat shit crazy when a new game comes around the corner. I take everything with a grain of salt, it saves me from the disappointment if a game turns out to be less than I expected. All gamers are different. I don’t follow the crowd on here. :)

          • ThisGuy18

            Lol ok so just this one? Gotcha

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            It’s clear that you are here to judge someone you barely know. I also don’t come here to judge others, so I won’t bother to even explain to you how funny that is.

            Also, I never bad mouthed the system and called it a piece of crap. You just like to put words in peoples mouths, but I digress. I clearly said it doesn’t have games that I want, and may not have games that people want. So gotcha, you read too deep into what people say to try to strengthen your argument, which failed big time my friend.

            You just sound like an angry fan who doesn’t like hearing the other side of a persons opinion that isn’t your own. If you don’t like what people like me have to say, then simply ignore it and move along with your life. Cause I’m not going anywhere anytime soon. Otherwise, you’re only looking for trouble.

            I took the dudes story with a grain of salt because there is no evidence that proves that it took place. Therefore, I can’t take his story as a fact. It has nothing to do with people being happy or not, it’s just a simple fact. If a dude came and told me he got people playing an Xbox One or PS4 just because he did a speedrun, I wouldn’t believe it much until I saw it for myself. Do you believe everything people tell you? I sure don’t.

            You’re right, I do take your post with a grain of salt, as it’s based off your opinion, which holds no fact. If you wanna talk video games, then by all means do. I’m talking video games on here, you’re talking nonsense. Right now, you’re just giving me amusement. :P

          • ThisGuy18

            Lol when did i say you called it a piece of crap? And where did all the smiley faces go if “I’m giving you amusement?” I was having fun :( also i think its funny that you replied at all cuz i thought you said you didn’t care what ppl said about you. Clearly you do xD have you played Super Mario 3D World? That game is badass

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            “Ooh so you know my life? K i don’t even like call or duty personally cuz i think it’s boring, and I’m not really a fan of blood spattering in videogames. i Don’t own ANY of their games. I got super mario 3D world yesterday and have been playing it non-stop sooo? Maybe you wanna think twice before you go making assumptions about somebody else’s life?”

            I don’t think you’re in any position to talk about me when you’re in the same boat. I care enough to tell you what I think, but at the end of the day, it matters little at all. Don’t be a hypocrite now. Why did you reply at all? Cause you care enough to. You answered your own question asking me the same. Sheer entertainment. :)

            No, I didn’t play Super Mario 3D World as I’m over the Mario phase. Glad you think it’s badass. I’m not judging your video game tastes. Just to make it clear, no, I’m not a CoD or as some call it, dudebro gamers. I actually like indie games these days. :P

          • ThisGuy18

            Lmao well it’s a good thing i wasn’t talking to you when i said that. God forbid if i actually said that to you (sorry for brining religion into it, i know you don’t like that) besides when did i say i didn’t care what ppl think about me? :) get your facts straight kid huh?

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            It proves that you can’t stand when people talk about you. :)

            For the record, I’m not religious, so I don’t care what you have to say there. You didn’t have to say whether or not you care what people think of you, it is obvious. Get your facts straight, son. Don’t like it? Well, it is a free country right? You said so yourself. :)

          • ThisGuy18

            I love how you continue to put words in my mouth. Half he stuff you’ve said so far came from your on dillusional head :) and i know you’re not religious. That’s obvious xD you don’t know my life so your argument = invalid

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            “That’s obvious xD you don’t know my life so your argument = invalid

          • ThisGuy18

            Well I’m only doing it cuz you’re doing it. Soo does that make you a hypocrite?

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Indeed. It’s a two way street. Never denied it. :P

          • ThisGuy18

            Lol i can see why nobody likes to argue with you now. It takes a lot of time out of the day

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            :)

          • Rinslowe

            I for one actually find that about you really amusing. Keep that up, lol.
            Loving your work Gonzalez

          • Rinslowe

            He’s just a little touchy lol.
            :)

          • ThisGuy18

            And calm down lol nobody’s looking for trouble. You just like to police everybody’s happiness on here which is strange considering its a wiiu fan site. That seems fair right? Cuz you know all about fairness.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Sorry, I don’t have that kinda time to police everyone’s comments looking for happiness. I can already see you’re here to troll and that much is obvious by how you came at me. You’re right, it is a free country. However, depends on what country you’re from. Where I’m from, we call that abusing our rights and causing a problem. If you weren’t looking for trouble, then you wouldn’t need to “police” anyone’s positive or what you feel is negative comments. I come to have discussions, you should try it too.

            Calm down now, don’t get upset because you don’t like people talking common sense. :P

          • ThisGuy18

            Well I live in America, and here it doesn’t really matter what you put up on the internet. And I’m not a troll. I just like to express my opinion, sorry if that’s too much for you :o if it is then just “kindly move along”

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            Nah, I think I’ll stay right here. Thank you for the offer though. I live in America as well. You’re right, doesn’t matter too much what is said on the internet, especially when you’re anonymous. It’s that much easier to get away with it. :P

          • ThisGuy18

            I’m glad you think so. You’re learning well :)

          • Rinslowe

            Actually that guy is pretty much spot on Gonzalez. Lol. That’s quite amusing “the happiness police”

            :)

  • Hulkamania

    i want to see some wii u gameplay. i am very interested in this game.

    • Zuxs13

      Look at youtube there are wii u videos of the game. But as far as I know there are no gameplay shots out there yet its not far enough along in development. This is a fan made game

  • Hulkamania

    Project CArs should be exclusive on wii u

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Nah, it’s fine being multi-platform.

  • CEObrainz

    I’m not too interested in this game, the whole racing simulator genre isn’t up my street. That being said, I’m glad that developers are not using the excuse that the Wii U is not as powerful as the PS4/XBone so that they can be lazy with Wii U development.

  • Hulkamania

    project cars should be exclusive on wii u because playstation and xbox gamers will never appreciate this game as much as a wii u gamer.

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Oh Hulk….you say the silliest things. :)

  • Ducked

    Need For Speed Most Wanted U looks great! I can only imagine how good Project Cars is going to look. If only more third parties put more effort in Wii U ports.

    • Virus6

      Need for Speed on Wii U was the best looking version according to the developers themselves. I have high hopes for this game if NFS looked that good.

      • Rinslowe

        I played them all and Wii U is the better version all round (consoles). But having said that apart from the night lighting (which I still think is top quality), the differences are not exactly “in your face” black and white “domination”… IMO. It’s just better, sharper and gamepad support is nice….

    • sharlo galmo

      And Need For Speed use only one core of the three, and was port in 6 month. If you think about that, how good it would be if it was make from the ground up!

    • Rinslowe

      I totally agree. It’s a double edged sword when talking about third parties receiving support on Wii U. But I still believe we should support games which were made with the right amount of effort; NFSMU is the first to spring to mind then W101 and Deus EX DC etc… And reject those that are gimped for so called corporate or economic reasons. From a gamer’s perspective I can understand their reasoning but can third parties understand gamer’s not supporting them because said game is missing comparable features or has sloppy or no optimisations? I really don’t enjoy choppy framerates from third party games when first party titles are employing a no’ of effects and maintaining a solid 30-60fps for eg…
      If the game is decent I’ll pick it up on Wii U and for gamepad support. If it’s just really average then PC for the eye candy only…

  • pedro rosado

    No offense Ashley/Zac but this came out 3 days ago.Anyway cant wait to get this game!!!Ill buy it day one

    • Zuxs13

      Damn them for taking some time and spending it with their families for the holidays and not reporting minor game news!! agh those lazy jerks!!

      • pedro rosado

        okay, i guess you are right… (:

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        Damn right! There’s no time to spend with your families. It’s WORK WORK WORK!

      • Magnus Eriksson

        That comment. Pure gold.

    • Fred

      Do we have any idea when it’s coming?

      • pedro rosado

        summer probably, still no official date

  • mojack411

    I’m not a realistic racer game fan, mainly because I suck hard core monkey balls at them, but this is still good news for the WiiU. I’m glad to see a developer being very objective about the console and systematically going through it’s strengths and weaknesses. It’s not purely focusing on the bad, which is just silly, or singing high praises for it, which comes off as a little corny to me most the time. Very valid statement that I can get behind on Andy’s part.

  • Matther777

    Will possibly coming in quarter 3 or 4 2014. I have the beta and info to as much as I can. Even being a member the forum is still locked on major details regarding the game. I know as a fact the developers and managers are loving the Wiiu for creativity. Some people still hate it but they haven’t tried it yet. This is a direct port from pc I know it won’t be looking like the screens we see but it will still be mind blowing.

  • NintendoNoob

    As much as I like this game I want to see some gameplay on the Wii U!!!!

  • Sdudyoy

    I’ve been following this game ever since it was first announced, I really love Racing simulators and this looks to be the best.

  • Adam Fox

    I wish this had been a Wii U exclusive…..PS and Xbox don’t need this game….they have Gran Turismo and Forza……Wii U needs this

    • DragonSilths

      True, but they want the most money they can get so they put it on everything.

      • Archiq09

        if wii u version sale more to ps3 and x360, it maybe help that ;)

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          PS3 and 360 ports were canceled. I think you mean PS4 and Xbox One. Personally speaking, I think it’s going to sell more on those two consoles than Wii U. I only say that usually because third party doesn’t have much luck on Nintendo consoles.

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      I think everyone should experience good games like this. So, I prefer it remain multiplatform. I understand your reasoning behind it, though.

      • oontz

        “I think everyone should experience good games like this”

        We have no way of knowing that this game will be good. Not until it comes out. It could turn out to be crap. Heres for wishful thinking though.

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Nothing wrong with wishful thinking. As long as we don’t feel upset if it sucks and expected it to be good.

    • Kaihaku

      I don’t mind that it’s not exclusive… I’m just glad that it’s coming to the Wii U.

  • Shigeru Miyamoto

    I’ve been soooo excited for this game since I heard about back in Feb. Oh man can’t wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!! first Racing SIM on Wii U i like that other trailer with awolnation sail song. bad ass!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Joey

      This will be my 3rd racing game, actually be my fourth racing games on my Wii U, getting Mario Kart 8 as well.

  • Cube

    Finally, Need For Speed Most Wanted U would have been a big hit but by the time it came out for Wii U everyone had it. This would be like the first real racing game.

  • starwars360

    I am sooooooooooooooooooooooo exciting!!!

    I owned Wii U and Xbox One so I will own PS4 once InFamous returns in March 2014 so I will getting this game on Wii U over PS4 and Xbox One because I want support this developer and support this game on Wii U. So I want first real simulation racing game on my superb Wii U console!! :)

    Don’t care if graphics slight better on Xbox One and PS4 then Wii U for this game as long as game on all systems is same great!!! :)

  • WellWisher

    Would be funny if they added blue shells to the Wii U version.

    • Coffee

      I would love a realistic racing game paired with Mario kart style combat

    • Zac Alias

      Would definitely be awesome!

  • Josiah Parsons

    Can’t wait!

  • n64king

    Honestly why is the first thing they always say about Nintendo is “the graphics aren’t as good”, I don’t feel like that’s fair anymore especially this round. Of course Nintendo may still be third place but they stepped it up this time and I feel the WiiU can easily keep up with the other 2 enough that they don’t need to force a realistic racing game for it. I’d gladly accept a good one but anytime these developers try to do what the Xbox or Playstation is doing for Nintendo consoles it doesn’t always pan out. Doing either unique games for them or giving them the fantasy or artistic looking games are seemingly drawn to it and work better. But that’s just my opinion.

    • C4

      They say it because compromises are necessary. Forza 5 on Xbox One doesn’t have weather, rain, nighttime or dynamic daytime changes, Driveclub on PS4 for example doesn’t have rain or other weather effects (at least not yet) and a maximum of 12 cars on track at once.

      At some point there will always be compromises, the question is how noticable they are in the end.

  • Flawless Victory

    Looking forward to what this game has to offer.

    • Brandon

      WRONG POST.

  • ufg

    from what I’ve heard the Wii U is nowhere near as underpowered compared to the PS4/XBONE as people say it is. The CPU in both the PS4 and XBONE is basically an eight-core version of a mid-low end mobile processor. I wouldn’t be surprised if next year’s snapdragon processors beat it. As for Wii U, it’s basically three Wii CPUs lined up next to each other (probably with some newer tech/ a newer manufacturing process) at nearly double the clock speed. The only real difference is in the GPU, and it’s not a huge difference either. Considering how hot and heavy the PS4 and XBONE run I think that’s forgivable.

    • oontz

      “The CPU in both the PS4 and XBONE is basically an eight-core version of a mid-low end mobile processor. I wouldn’t be surprised if next year’s snapdragon processors beat it.”

      Ha ha ha, ummm okay.

      • ufg

        ah yes. Sounds silly. This year’s processors already beat it.

    • DC777

      It’s the same old amd 8 core not being better than an intel quad core type argument. 8 cores doesn’t mean much since they are not all real cores and games don’t use them all anyway. Bog it down with other multimedia crap and you don’t have much of an advantage.

  • fireheartis1

    This game looks so freaking fun. I’m not usually into sim style racing games, although I did enjoy Formula 1 09 and Ferrari Challenge on the Wii I usually like arcade style racing games more. This looks very promising and I can’t wait too play it. By the way this game has been in development for some time now, does anyone know when it is coming out?

  • Guhtere

    I can’t decide whether to get this for Wii U or PS4. CURSE YOU DECISIONS!

    • Mizzah Tee

      Didn’t knoow there was going to be a PS4 version. It’s only been listed for PS3, X360, PC, and Wii U…

      • Guhtere

        The PS3 and 360 versions were cancelled, and it was announced that this game would be coming to the PS4 and the XOne

  • oontz

    “Well, thats definitely some positive things being said in terms of the Wii U’s graphical capability”

    How so? he clearly says…

    “Sure, some super-high-level graphical effects may not be possible”

    • Rinslowe

      Obviously the part where he mentions the core experience can be easily achieved on the U. The comparison at that point comes when considering how last gen HD twins were both openly dropped by the dev due to this reason not being able to achieve the core experience.
      In defence of their logic, why pass up on nearly 200m potential gamer’s if what they say is just a load of marketing nonsense?

      On another note, “some super high level graphical effects may not be possible” hardly concludes the Wii U is not capable of very decent effects. Note the words “some” and “may not be” does not confirm all high level effects are absent. Also super high effects is a marketing spiel in itself as those kinds of effects are not easily found on current gen systems either outside of high end PC’s… Furthermore as the PC is one of the platforms confirmed, this statement reads rather ambiguously towards PS4/ Xbox 1 as they are not actually mentioned.

      • oontz

        Way to totally miss the point.

        “Well, thats definitely some positive things being said in terms of the Wii U’s graphical capability”

        I read a lot of positive things being said in terms of wiiu gamepad and miiverse integration. Not so much being said in terms of the wiiu’s graphical capability, other than like you pointed out, being able to provide the core experience. He still goes on to say that “some super high level graphical effects may not be possible” which is a negative NOT a positive.

        • Rinslowe

          Lol, pretty sure I missed no such point… oontz.
          :)

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          This is true. It’s obvious that the Wii U isn’t going to compare to the PS4 and Xbox One. It does have advantages outside of the graphical capabilities, but I don’t really see anyone talking about it’s graphical power. That was long ago before the Wii U was released and was all in speculation.

  • Rinslowe

    “Andy Tudor of Slightly Mad Studios tells us he can hear the fans of realistic racing games crying for the game on the Wii U.”
    Crying, screaming, long silent stares into the abyss!!!
    Andy…. release now – thank you.

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Cheer up man. It’ll all be okay. :P

      • Rinslowe

        Oh G-man, you still crazy?

  • jrob23

    “Sure, some super-high-level graphical effects may not be possible”
    remember folks, it isn’t like they are devoting all their time and resources to get the best out of the Wii U like Nintendo does. So maybe according to their talents it may not be possible. After all, it is a very different set up compared to the other two and requires finesse and more understanding then maybe they have time and people for.
    I think for a year or two, any 3rd party game will suffer this fate. Once they have figured it out we should start to see some real good efforts out of them.

  • http://www.mpt-online.eu/ Sylux

    I said so before and will say again, I’m no fan of racing games but this game really feels epic (can’t really say feels as I haven’t touched it, but you get tye point),although besides Mario Kart I don’t buy/play racing games, this game I shall buy.

    Not to play much, but purely to support these guys, from the beginning they have been positive and staying so even now. That alone is enough for me to support these guys. Thank you.

    If it’s as good as Forza or GT I’m in.

    Damn these posts have gone way beyond the article.
    P.S. I hope they release a steering wheel in time for this game!!
