  1. The WRC wheel basically replaced the P1. The P1 went from being a... I'm not sure, rubber? rim like the one Meers posted to Alcantara (Xbox P1) which I have, and half leather Playstation P1 rim (alcantara top and bottom, leather where you grip it). WRC wheel moved a couple of buttons, I think to a worse position, and added some graffiti. The orange stitching is a bit nicer than the red on mine. My McLaren rim has shipped As a console played, playing 95% GT Sport, the rotaries will be a bit lost on me (though they work in console ACC I believe) but I wanted to try a f
  2. We did our first non-family pizza night last night, with COVID restrictions lifting a little in the past few weeks, and having not seen my team from work in over a year... Stupidly didn't take any photos, but having read the past few pages, I thought I'd post some of my experiences... I cheaped out on an infrared thermometer as I bought the Ooni (Koda 12) for my wife's Xmas, and was already well over budget, but actually, I'm really happy with my choice. I bought one of these: for about 4 quid from China prior to Brexit, but still available for 7 quid or so
  3. They aren’t like Analogue, but also they won’t be available at launch either, well there might be some cancellations. They are actually pretty decent. They obviously only do limited number of units, but they put up preorders for months in advance, but they tell you when that estimated time is. I’m speculating, but I think it’s likely based on their manufacturing orders. For example, I ordered the McLaren wheel on the 16th of April estimated dispatch was end of June (and still is). You can still order it now for June 30th so I presume they haven’t sold out of that stock alloca
  4. That’s interesting! Though round 2 of preorders was due for October delivery, not much time left in the year
  5. They did say there would be 3 opportunities to preorder, as existing customers we were included in all 3 email drops.
  6. ACC runs at 60 on a PS4 pro, but yes, the bit you actually spend most of your time looking at is a proper blurry thing, but remember, ACC is also built in a not particularly amazingly well optimised engine and was ported by a company who didn’t develop it, not specifically by a Sony second party developer who can extract a lot more from the hardware. I’d imagine GT7 was originally being developed as a PS4 game then was moved on to PS5 given the timelines too. All this being said, I wasn’t really trying to defend GT7 being of the same quality if it was PS5 only or not, m
  7. I'm very much over simplifying here and drawing the wrong conclusions, but... I believe ACC on console still runs the full physics model on all cars in single player, and that physics model is far in advance of GT Sport. Surely, if you remove calculating physics models for 19 of the 20 cars, there is plenty of room for GT7 to do stuff on ps4, which to me seems that online multiplayer mode, where the physics model is running only for your own car, would be less CPU intensive than single player. Whatever happens, I guess if there is any cross platform stuff going on, and
  8. This is me too. I'd strongly consider dropping Sky all together if it wasn't for F1, though I'd miss Indy Car too. I guess F2 is on F1TV, which would be the obvious viable option for me, in 2024, assuming F1 don't renew.
  9. Shame the video cuts, I want to know if it takes Eau Rouge flat.
  10. I've all but given up on car boots up here. I think the smaller population doesn't help, I remember visiting my girlfriends mum in London 20 or so years ago, and the games stuff I could have bought for virtually nothing was amazing, had it not been for them all telling me the space was an issue, and then having to get it on the mega bus When her family moved up to Dundee, we did a bootsale to sell off some crap that wasn't coming with us (circa 2003 or 4 I think). I remember helping them set up then heading off for a walk, seeing mint looking boxed SNES Starwing pack and Internat
  11. I don’t think I was in the audio lab at the time but I remember the trailer and the buzz in Games Tech for the following days, E3 hasn’t been the same since. We were all well and truly on the motherfuckin Reggie hype train, Choo, chooo!
