Project CARS coming to next-gen consoles - PS4, Xbox One and Steam OS release confirmed

It's official: Project CARS is now coming to PS4, Xbox One and Valve's Steam OS, alongside its originally penned platforms on PC and Wii U. 

A next-gen port of Slightly Mad's ambitious crowd-funded PC project had already been hinted as a possibility following investment requests. A PS3 and Xbox 360 port was also originally planned, but WMD members voted to scrap these platforms in favour of the superior next-gen hardware - unsurprising, considering that part of Project CARS' appeal is its highly detailed graphics, which current hardware simply wouldn't be able to handle. Having to sacrifice the fidelity of the visuals wouldn't do Slightly Mad's stunning work of art justice.  

In addition to PS4 and Xbox One, Project CARS is also now heading to Valve's Steam OS platform as part of Slightly Mad's partnership with Steam

Slightly Mad's Head of Studio Ian Bell commented: “Project CARS has always lead the pack in terms of insane detail. Whether that’s graphically in the craftsmanship of our cars and tracks, technically in the way we’ve approached weather and time of day, or emotionally in how each car feels and responds to your touch. These powerful new platforms allow us therefore to not compromise on the quality of our vision and ultimately that means players are going to experience something truly breathtaking when they get behind the wheel.”.

Project CARS is still on track for release in Autumn 2014. This announcement means that Project CARS is currently the only sim racing title that will be available on all next-gen consoles, and is the only one scheduled for PS4. With Gran Turismo 6 not arriviing on PS4 for another year or two, if at all, Project CARS could become the definitive PS4 sim racing experience until Polyphony can deliver a next-gen Gran Turismo sequel
What will be your platform of choice?

Alan did you ever play Race Pro from Atari for Xbox 360? I actually played it when it first came out then started playing Forza and I forgot about the game. Thing is the Formula 3000 part of the game was great and the tracks were awesome. Check it out. LOL started playing it again
