GT5 was one of my favorite games on PS3. Had a blast running some leagues with the Super GT 500 cars! Hope they leave the servers up for the foreseeable future since I'm pretty sure it's the best selling game on PS3 (exluding GTA V).
Interesting there's no mention of any classic car content, given that it was such a major selling point of F1 2013.
Yes the power gulf between PC and consoles has expanded to a point that the PC is already a next-gen system.
Of course a much better TT bike racing experience than Tourist Trophy by most likely much better than Jester and Grand Tourismo 7 already exists. The TT Isle of Man Moutain course add-0n for the gp500 pc game.
Aracde physics? I'd rather play something better myself..
Yes, F1 2015 will be on PC. Codemasters announced it on their Facebook page.
Hopefully the "Next Gen" F1 2015 game will also be on PC and not just a console exclusive! Great news that they're releasing new games earlier in the season now!
