  2. I know exactly what you mean, kofotsjanne.....but it really isn't an issue for me. There must be a valid reason why Kunos have done this, and I trust them. That is what I am trying to say.

    Wow... thats's weird. The first thing you do is to fuel pc vs. console- community fire - pre release - because of a single digit amount of bucks. I wouldn't mind if the initial price for consoleros would be 0, those are a lot of future customers, who will pay for future content and development for all of us.

    Am I not allowed to be critical about something without getting accused of trying to start some war? They split the console player base day one by having pre-order bonuses. Can you say that im not correct about that?

    This may not split the user base. IRacing doesn't split their user base. In the GT3 race, you can race against all the cars even though you do not own all of the cars to actually drive yourself.

    But this is not the case in Assetto Corsa.

    If they have not fixed this for the console release I suppose that is a shame since other companies like the Forza franchise also have fixed this regarding cars.

    But at the end of the day it will not be very important. The overwhelming data show that very few players of racing games use multiplayer online. And my guess is that console racing games is an even smaller percentage of players that do multiplayer.

    Compare that to the data the industry has around what pre-order bonuses can do for sales. I am pretty sure the comparison is a no-brainer for Kunos to go the pre-order route. As much as they feel just like members of The Sim racing community they are after all running a business and need to maximize that business. When they do they have shown that their profit ends up benefiting all of us who like the product with new content etcetera.

    Hopefully they will do what iRacing do and allow others too race against those with content they do not have, as long as they have any content on the server

    This would be IMO ideal way of doing it. You can see the cars, but not race it. But it would make the base game download bigger. But maybe this could be a way to advertise the DLC cars, people could view them in Showroom and see the skin options, but not race them.

    Okay, perhaps this sounded a little bit too offensive, but i still think that discussions like this one are just completely unnessecary. "I paid 3 euro/people can use gamepads/console sky is bluer..." who cares, it doesn't change anything concerning your driving experience. Perhaps you're right somehow, but how exactly change things for you, if somebody else has to pay 3€?

    If I had to decide this I'd go for that solution. It's been kind of Kunos' little trick to get people to buy the content and that's ok with me.
    But on consoles they will need a super strong start to succeed and by sticking to the current solution they'd let their guard down a bit.

    They firmly said no to buy to drive a year or so ago.

    they haven't done this for PC yet, why now introduce it to the console version? I mean yes, it would be easier to give the console gamers all the cars to display opponents, while locking them from use by the players themselves. The RP F1 "restriction" showed how well that worked on PC ;)

    Having some sort of dummy car to replace not yet bought cars seems very unlikely too.

    What doeas Triple3 mean? 3 by 3 = 9 cars? Or only 3 cars?

    We should all hope that Assetto Corsa sells like crazy on the console. As far as I'm concerned, I wouldn't care if they got every DLC pack free forever. I don't have a PS4, to me it might as well be a different game because it's nothing that I have access to. But, the success of that console version will have an impact on the game I play because of the effect it will have on Kunos' revenue. I do have an opinion about the console having different versions, however, and the opinion is not good. Assetto Corsa doesn't have a huge car list to begin with. I've been seeing the vast number of complaints about that already. One version is coming with 6 more cars than the other, or something like that... I can just picture some holier-than-thou console player refusing to buy Assetto Corsa over something like this. It's only a measly $5 difference, isn't it? Yet some people will act like it's a $100 difference or say they're passing on AC "out of principle" or something lame like that.

    I'm not really a gamer, so I don't fully understand the gaming ecosystems of console or PC to be totally honest. If it's become a fact of life that every title is going to be released with different versions containing different levels of content in the console world, I wish Kunos would have made the Step 1 & Step 3 cars, Drift versions the "bonus content" in the Prestige Pack. It worries me that the base version of Assetto Corsa for consoles is going to be missing some pretty significant content. If there were 500 cars, I don't think it would bother me as much. Maybe that makes sense, maybe it doesn't. I don't know...

    My thoughts are: I hope it sells out everywhere and they have to press more and more copies. That's all I can hope for...

    Well the more it sells the more money we have for marco to play with. Look what he has done with 3,000,000. Imagine if AC sells 250k copies on console at an average of $40. It would mean $10,000,000, granted 99.8% of that goes to the publisher but it very well could open up many more options. As for the extra versions that is simply 505 being scumbags but its common plastic on console.

    Hope 505 gives console players a chance to buy missing Prestige cars separately as DLC. While "Exclusive" implies something else.

    Do we have any info if career mode will be same or reworked on consoles?
