Re: NASCAR The Game: Inside Line Patch Expected Later This Month, Details Included

In-car is mandatory. I've spoken to a few guys who can use a controller, but those are mostly road racing guys.

I can't even fathom trying to race with a 360 controller on the ovals. It's almost a requirement to have a wheel or you won't be able to hold a line at all, and the higher up you go, the less tolerance people will have for that sort of driving.

I've been on the service since 2008, and have only spoken to maybe 5 guys in all that time that tried using a controller (and it usually came up because they weaved and wrecked somebody and mentioned they were on one), so I'd HIGHLY recommend going a wheel route--even a cheap wheel.

The best bang for your buck would probably be a Logitech Driving Force GT ($150):

or the G27 ($300):

The Driving Force GT is fine for getting some force feedback and "feeling" a car. It's the bottom end of the decent wheels, though. But if you're not too serious about it and just want to dabble, $150 for a wheel that works with all your PC games (and PS3 if you race on there) is pretty good.

Just in case you guys didn't see it yet, the 360 patch has been approved and will be out on the 18th. I have not seen anything on the PS3 patch yet.

Everything above pretty much nails it. Wheel. Wheel. Wheel. And my apologies too for hijacking this thread.

Not sure why that is actually, since sony's approval process is typically faster then M$. I am sure it has something to do with you being a Pittsburgh fan -

Re: NASCAR The Game: Inside Line Patch Expected Later This Month, Details Included

I'm going to check it out a bit at lunch, but based on what I'm reading, I'm not terribly optimistic. It seems like they stopped crashing after pit stops, which was a big boost, but seeing that brake checking is still alive and well in T4 at Charlotte, and they are now plowing the wall coming off of corners...well, I'm not too excited.

But I'm still itching for a NASCAR game where it has the current rule set, so I'm sure I'll try it some more before throwing in the towel for this year. I AM eager to see if they improved wheel support for it like they said they did, though.
