I can't help but agree, Especially as LOTS of people have actually already paid for that game to be developed and released. Inc. me.
Now they release a free to play game, and not only that it's a racing game too.

The crowd is 3D, also like Korndog said watch Forza 5 a flagship game for a NEXT gen console, this is a f2p racer.

This is not a competion to pcars, they are just using some of the same assets and making an arcade game for those who prefer that.

Reminds me much of PGR4, which is a good thing.

This game has cost them almost nothing to make, it's obvious they are using pretty much all assets from an unfinished game to release a free game that will probably get them some cash.

It's also obvious this game is not going to be anything special.

Some PS3 games looks very nice, you know? For a free-2-play MMO arcade racing game, it looks great :)

Well it looks better than the F2P NFS MMORPG I guess. How mature is Project Cars anyway?

On the money! That was my initial thought too, especially seeing Big Ben in the background. I'm going to play that this evening now :D

Your right it has cost them nothing, It's cost me and thousands like me who have paid towards the development of Project CARS.

I agree with this. It seems they taking the funding from one project( by the community who've been waiting for years for a finished project), then releasing a "free" game before it likely using assets payed for by the PCars "investors". Yikes. I'd be pissed if I had been a PCars funder... I guess we know why PCars has been an "alpha" for so long...
