GSY Review PS4 Xbox One PC

While the Xbox One was already granted its own Fanatec steering wheel in 2015, Playstation 4 owners had to wait one more year to have a taste at a higher-end wheel. Since 2016, the German manufacturer has finally proposed a version of the CSL Elite which is officially compatible with Sony's console. For our first full-written review of 2017, we have decided to give you our detailed impressions on this (quite expensive) piece of hardware, with a bunch of off-screen videos showing the wheel in action and even a fully translated video review. Because it's a first on Gamersyde, we would love to hear what you think about this kind of article so we know if this review was well worth the efforts we've put into it. Enjoy!
Note: Many thanks to Tiz, who helped me make sure the translation was solid enough to share it with you.

As you know, we've been equipped with a 4K capture card for months now, but things haven't been as easy as we hoped when it comes to providing you with 4K content. We quickly realized that our SSD was not fast enough to record lossless content with Amarec, but while OBS should have given us an alternative, though with compressed footage this time, we were never able to get a smooth result and it didn't make sense. Lossless recording being totally random, with sequences which would be captured correctly and others with missing frames everywhere, we had to go through hell to be able to give you some Horizon: Zero Dawn 4K footage that looked good. With the upcoming release of the new Xbox, we were starting to believe the future of Gamersyde would have to be written without 4K...

More DiRT Rally footage on PS4 this morning with stages in different countries and a few extracts from the rallycross mode, which suffers from a few tearing issues in replays due to the number of cars on the screen. We also have two GSY Tech videos for you to check, so we hope you'll enjoy all we have prepared for you!

We just got our copy of DiRT Rally on PS4 so we haven't really had time to get used to the handling with a gamepad yet. Even so, we still managed to finish on the podium in the first two stages of the Greece rally. It's not the best driving ever but at least it will show you that the port on consoles is a good one and that the difficulty hasn't been toned down. We might decide to livestream the game sometime this week, but there's nothing sure yet. More direct feed videos will come this evening and in the next few days.
Note: ABS was set to 3 and the other driving aids were deactivated during capture.
Update: 5 videos added.

While Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo was only released a few days ago, Codesmasters and Koch Media are back with a new trailer reminding us of the upcoming release of the console version of DiRT Rally and announcing some new content. Enjoy!

If you don't know it yet, no one can beat MorphBZH when it comes to driving games. Not only is he the best pilot in the team, he's also quite the handy man as he has managed to build his own handbrake to play DiRT Rally in the best possible conditions. The following video is the proof that he's not too bad behind a wheel. What do you think?

DiRT Rally was finally updated to add the German stages and a few more cars to play with. Until MorphBZH or Miguel can find a bit of time to show you what a skilled driver can do with a wheel, here are two videos captured with a controller. As you'll see, it's a failed attempt at completing one of the new stages, but it was still a nice ride while it lasted.

DiRT Rally has been out for a few weeks now and the developers recently added some content with the addition of the inonic Pikes Peak. It wasn't an easy task to bring you back some quality footage and it took us numerous tries and quite a good amount of sweat, but here it is!
Note: We used the Logitech Driving Force GT wheel with a modified FFB config file and a DIY handbrake. Automatic gears, ABS 3/5, TCS and ESP both OFF.
