SimChat News

Post by AAR GTDon on Sun Mar 15, 2015 2:51 pm

This topic/thread is devoted to the sporadic chatter and gossip found around the Net on the in's and out's of simulation racing.  Here you won't find merely rumors of what's going on but actual information obtained by our contributors and crack staff.

For example, TORA announced today what their new season is going to look like in 2015, and the fact that Forza will no longer be the only racing title they organize events with.  TORA is only doing what so many have been forced to do, which is to abandon Forza altogether, or adapt to a new model for organizing console simulation racing, by welcoming other brands such as Project CARS.  They realize that times are changing, and the days of being with 1 simulation to suit all their members needs are past.  We are entering a new era where there will be many very good and even superior simulation racing games to that of the Forza franchise. 

The long term speculation is that Turn 10's beloved Forza will be relegated to a kind of back marker status as other more sophisticated simulations move forward with a more enhanced racing experience.  It's not that no one will want to buy FM6, but that it will be properly identified as more car show game than simulation racer when compared to the newest titles.  Forza may become the nostalgia sim where all the old guys go to get all reminiscent about the "good old days of simulation racing" or maybe where pre-teens first go to pick up an easy arcade racer masquerading as a simulation.

I hate to say it, but it appears T10 may have finally figured out the correct approach for simulation racing, which is to have organized racing. It is ironically the last avenue left to explore, and the most ignored feature of all in console sim-racing. 

I know many here doubted it could even be done on console, but FM6 is about to prove that theory wrong.  And they are doing it in an iRacing-like fashion.

Come on ProjectCARS, time to bring your A-Game.



Funny that they are essentially using the same ratings method we've used here on the IFCA for the past 3 years.  Beat fast drivers, gain more ratings points, get a higher license. and so on.
