Every time i see an article about Trackmania i think about how awesome a modern version of Stunt Car Racer could have been.

I wonder how people will play this with a VR-set since "everyone" uses 3rd person cameras in driving games.

In almost every case i prefer 1st person view in driving and flying games so VR is something i'm really looking forward to.

since cockpit view has become more prevalent in racers, i'm not sure that's true anymore. i know i used chase cam only in the PSone days, but since colin mcrae on PS2 i'm all about the cock....pit! lol

I never use third person cameras in driving games.. but Trackmania is hardly a driving game.

I don't use the cockpit view either. Why waste your senses filling over a third of the screen with crap? It's worse than a cluttered HUD. Hood/bumper cams ftw. But anyway.. I can easily imagine this making people sick. Trackmania is not even a little realistic.

No one uses chase cam apart from casuals and kids.

In semi-realistic racers, sure.. but Trackmania is about as realistic as Mario Kart or F-Zero.

This isn't a "driving game."

PC gamers are going to get the most out of VR with their hardware advantage.
As a console owner im a realist as far as VR is concerned.. its gonna suck on this gens underpowered machines.

I can't wait! Hopefully the 4-person split screen applies to PC as well, and hopefully their support of controllers on PC is more plug-and-play than the last few games.

Was under the impression that Sony VR wont just rely on the PS4 but will have a CPU, Ram and maybe GPU built in?

Not sure how much of the load the VR set will be taking on but for Driveclub the optimization of the framerate is being done from the PS4 side at a slight expense to the car count and graphics. Hopefully it's just a symptom of venturing into new hardware.

It won't suck, of that I'm certain, but I'm also certain that PC users will be better equipped. Now whether or not devs actually capitalize on the PC hardware is another issue entirely. You need only look to games like Batman Arkham Origins to see that the PC experience doesn't always win out.

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot Yeah I think innovations on the console side are taken up more quickly by PC than vice versa because consoles are really lead platform for everything (1 Hour ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite At least for most gamers. Similar to when everything went to pci-e (1 Day ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite I think we could be seeing a dramatic shift in PC hardware where it'll be essential to own both an SSD and a next gen card with the api's to use them. That also would probably require new motherboards (1 Day ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite If a game is built from the ground up to take advantage of that, though... (1 Day ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite I think it'll be down to next gen engines making use of it where applicable. So, basically, if a game allows it, hardware permitting, it'll be used. (1 Day ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @toelessfoot: Yeah, that's the thing, isn't it? PC's are a bit too much of an open platform hardware wise for it to be standard implementation. (1 Day ago)

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot @MrWhite: How long until we see that kind of thing in PCs do you think? I guess consoles are more future proof than a current PC in that regard. (1 Day ago)
