If codies have only paid $30m for the IP for Project Cars which is the figure I saw quoted, they got a bargain IMO. That supports the theory that Slightly Mad had committed to deliver the Hollywoood Blockbuster based game but have run out of money...

30m for an IP that failed badly on it's second appearance is not a bargain.

They got a bit more than the PCars IP...but that's a solid base with a known name to build on, one eye on eSports future revenue streams, could well be big a winner for them.

I mean, Codemaster had a great Game with Dirt Rally 1 with a realy good aktiv Force Feedback, a fantastic Handling and VR support.
I will never understand why they didn´t use that existing tools for DR 2 and just polish the game and graphics + some new traks. Low work - maximum profit and nearly everyone would have been happy. But they changed everything to the worst possible result.

How would it be in PC3 ? New handling like in NFS Shift or Grid? And I do not thrust the reviews anymore, at the moment of release, they sayd on youtube, gamestar and so on that DR 2 has a perfect relastic FFB but in reality it was not even working.

I remain skeptical and hope it´s not like this and SMS has that under control.

Pretty much every new game is released with issues, day one patches are the norm now. It's just a matter of how bad it is and it's effect on the experience overall.
