    Guess I will wait till next year or whenever they come out with improved graphics in 4K.

    I'll definitely hold out until it goes on sale 6 or 7 months after release for $20, or less. I haven't read anything of HDR support, or even 60 FPS either... if you're not going to support 4K, you've at least got to have to support HDR and at the very least, 60 FPS on the X and the Pro!?
    Yeah, no 4K, no HDR, no 60fps = wait for sale. Too bad, as I've really been behind this series since its inception. This will be the first time I don't purchase within the first week of release.
    I honestly keep waiting for this game to take the leap but I do not think it will ever come. Maybe it is just me, but the series is moving at a snails pace and is way behind the times of what should exist as a racing game in 2019. I do not even think I can purchase at $20.
    I feel like I'm the only person who doesn't care one bit about this 4K/HDR/60 fps stuff as I think it looks just fine already. Maybe part of it is the fact that I'm visually impaired and can't as readily appreciate the difference and maybe part of it is being an older gamer who played racing games on Atari and NES and just being able to appreciate how far graphics have come over the past 30+ years. I've always placed gameplay ahead of graphics as far as priorities.

    I dont care so much about the visuals, it's important to me, yes, but the 4k for me, irrelevant. No 4k set. HDR... same thing. 60fps though, is extremely important to me for a racing game. Its got to be buttery smooth IMO. All that being said, the visuals in this series to me are so far behind the times that this "upgrade" they're talking about better be worth it.
    So far for me, I'm not buying into the hype of these upgrades. With release only a few days away, they haven't really shown off much of anything for me to justify throwing more cash at them when I've been largely disappointed the first 3 times around. It's one thing to put out a fancy trailer, and a few videos of people who can't and don't really play racing games playing the game with arcade settings, and it's another to release a few articles listing the new gameplay features... but, until I see it, or hear from someone who has it. I'm out.
    I can leave the the average graphics they've given the last 3, the framerate has always suffered, so that needs to improve for me to want to buy it, but I'm with you... if the gameplay and playability options arent there, I'll wait for a sale, or look for a used copy somewhere. They've got enough of my money at this point for a racing game that's so far behind so many others. I'm still contemplating a pre-order through the Xbox store just to check it out, and if I'm not satisfied with all these "upgrades" they've briefly mentioned, I'll just uninstall and ask MS for a refund before I've passed whatever that time limit of theirs is for returns/refunds. Pretty sad that's what I have to do, but the lack of information coming from these guys tells me alot.

    I could accept the lack of 4K and HDR support, even though I have a 4K, Ultra HD HDTV that supports them, and I have good vision to appreciate them to the max, the lack of 60 FPS support for the XBox One X and PS4 Pro, is IMO, inexcusable. A racing game on next-gen hardware in 2019, HAS to at least support 60 FPS to meet the minimum standard.
    I can definitely live without 4K and HDR, even though I purchased a TV set for that very reason and virtually every other sports game supports it nowadays.
    60fps is a different story. It's not a lofty target, it's the benchmark for quality racing/sports gaming. If NH doesn't hit the mark on its fourth iteration, I'll be waiting for a sale. Hopefully someone with a PS4 Pro can confirm post-release.

    It can be when they designed the game around "Unity" which is a mobile platform engine. The more they push Unity, the more inconsistent performance people will see. Compare Unity to Codemaster's EGO Engine........."NO CONTEST". And the EGO Engine first appeared way back with the first DiRT game. It's still going strong, still performs well and looks 50x better than any Nascar Heat game.
    Nascar Heat is a $19.99 game and no more. Given the fact that the developer is a cheapskate and looking to MILK it's customers with BS paint job just tells you all you need to know. Want a different Spotter voice? Well, you'll need to pay up. :y220a:
