GSY LIVE | Xbox One Wednesday, September 24, 2014 | 3:20 PM

Forza Horizon 2 Live tonight!

Forza Horizon 2 Live tonight!

Unless something goes very wrong (and it happens a lot around here) we will tonight do our first Gamersyde Live on, featuring Driftwood who will do the playing and most of the talking, and myself with my terrible English accent. We will show you guys the first hour of Forza Horizon 2, and reply to any questions about the game you may have. So if you want to experience some truly mangled English, and a not too bad looking video quality, tune in tonight at 9:30PM CEST!
Update 4: We are done. Hope you guys liked it!

This is an awesome idea and a nice feature that I hope you guys do more of in the future.

I have a question: Will you guys be recording the Livestream with your equipment and post the full video or the highlights in separate videos later?

Asked because while Twitch has an archive, it segments videos in 20-30 minutes parts and includes a lot of ads in them. Plus nothing beats GamerSyde's quality.

PS. Will Drift use a steering wheel or the XBO's controller?

We will post the replay of the livestream as most websites do but we can't use our own capture equipment as it would be against the NDA rules. For GSY quality videos, you'll have to wait until Thursday (though there are also strict embargo rules). For all our videos, be there on Sept 30.

No steering wheel as my old Fanatec is not compatible. Chip in so I can buy a next gen one. :D

Yes!! Awesome feature. Going to resist watching though as i want to immerse myself fully when the game releases :) Then again i know i wont be able to fully resist a peek! ;)

Thanks for the fast reply, didn't even think about the release date, makes sense.

As for the steering wheel, I thought you guys had one for current gen consoles, but do you have any racing wheel in mind?

I just looked through Thrustmaster's wheels and none supports the PC, PS4 and XBO. I believe that one which supports all 3 platforms is the way to go instead of needing to have one for consoles and one for PC, or one for each platform. This way you only need to buy one and it works with everything.

The only one that would be cross platform would be the new Fanatec but it's way too expensive (wheel base + wheel + shifter would be required).

Will the video quality be 480p like all the other crap twitch streams

It'll be as good as we can. You'll need a very good connection to keep up, but it won't be Gamersyde quality.

Just researched and indeed the price would get too expensive, my Fanatec bundle came to a total of 1,799.65€. In which case would be better to buy a wheel to each platform.

I did find an alternative, though, it's a controller adapter for PC, PS4, PS3, XBO and X360 called CronusMAX (link below):

You can see the compatible list in the "Cross-over Gaming" section in the "What Does it Do?" section. Though it also supports a lot of other devices that they just simply didn't test yet.

People have started experimenting with a Logitech G27 Racing Wheel Tool, which works quite well, except for force feedback, which they are currently researching how to add properly. Though there are some effects like "weight pulling back to center and rumbles for all the in-game effects".

You can read more on the 3 threads on the below link:

Also, there's these 2 videos of it in action:

How to run G27 on Xbox One and Forza 5 with CronusMAX

Forza 5 with G27 logitech wheel on Xbox One

PS. I know it gets technical, but nothing someone who is used to modding on PC can't handle.

I destroyed the demo in terms of how many times i played it. As much as i like this idea, i am not gonna watch it. September 30 is soon and i wanna see it all for myself.

Must not watch...Must not watch...Must not watch...

Twitch is fine for now but I can't wait for your own proprietary Gamersyde Quality livestream. I'm sure this is coming somewhere down the line :D

I'm looking into it, as a matter of fact.

Man, twitch, exciting stuff gs. :D

Check the update, live cancelled unfortunately. Technical issues (echo) are driving Blim insane and he had to take a long break. Sorry again, we'll eventually manage I guess, but it's complicated to say the least. Maybe tomorrow evening if things start to stop going wrong.

Believe if there was anything I could do, I would do it and I would stream the game on my own. Unfortunately, that's not possible. We should have cancelled earlier, it would have made things easier on everyone I guess.

A bit off topic, but will you guys be doing one for Driveclub as well?
Commented on 2014-09-24 00:10:42 In reply to vspectra06
If we do, it won't be before October 7, when the embargo is officially lifted.
Commented on 2014-09-24 01:03:42
That screen shot is great, is there a video of it?
Commented on 2014-09-24 01:05:03 In reply to Driftwood
Ah, ok. Anyways, good luck with the sound issues here. :)
Commented on 2014-09-24 15:22:17
Fingers crossed, it might work this evening.
Commented on 2014-09-24 15:25:43
Cool, cool cool cool. :)
Commented on 2014-09-24 21:22:46
ten minutes! :D

What's up?
  • aphex187
    aphex187 I think you're looking too deep into it tbh. You could say every round was the same on previous titles. (3 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm warming to the new vehicle spawns.. but still prefer "the old way" (27 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Seems to push close games.. but in a way that makes me feel like every round is kinda the same. (48 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX They totally misunderstood the issue with kills and tickets. (51 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The new conquest rules are still weird. I don't like winning "tickets" when my team only has one flag. Doesn't seem right that you can win on "bleed" from behind. (52 minutes ago)

    nostradamus the dream is dead. shame on you roskstar. (1 Hour ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus its fine if you want to play some games on psnow for convinience and you aceptet the bad visuals with streaming, even for retro gaming, thts fine. But people wanted a 1080p@60fps RDR on PC years ago. (1 Hour ago)
