I'll be interested to see if this much lauded PC game can have the same impact on consoles.

I own it on PC and it seems like a great title, but really, iRacing has destroyed my need for other racing games at the moment. Still, it's a great time to be a fan of racing games.

Fantastic news! The more sim racers we have to choose from the better!

The driving model in AC is very sim-like but the AI is laughable. They talk about "refined AI" but I doubt they can fix it. PCars AI is like 1000x better and it's not the best either. AC it's good for some hot laps though.

Very excited for this. I picked a great year to buy a wheel and rig! Glad I can get my racing fix between forza, pCars and AC. This is awesome!
