    Always loved Simbin games, this one looks really good. I think it's time to take out my G25 off the box :D

    I've been part of the closed beta for a while, and I can say it's awesome! The sounds are orgasmic, the tracks have amazing turns and it's an all around awesome sim.

    Looks fairly good, but F2P is always a misleading hook. Unless it's a very crappy game, you're not going to get much content free, and this one's no exception there.

    In essence, regarding those that are worth playing anyway, the whole Free to Play concept is more that of a glorified demo than an actual full free game.

    I have a question. I received an email today inviting me to their beta. But this email looks suspect to me.

    First I thought anyone that pays a fee can beta test. Why would they invite me to beta for free?

    Also the email address is odd but maybe its legit. Anyone that plays maybe stick your head in and tell me if this is legit or not? Thanks!

    You should also get a steam code.

    Okay I looked into it further and found that it is legit. I accepted the NDA and they sent me a steam access code.

    Looking forward to this!

    I would pay $150 for a Gran Turismo for the PC. I would also pay a monthly fee for constant maintenance and new features with online play, etc...

    I'd hate it if it were a GT clone. That game is boring.

    I love all the past SimBin games so I'm sure I will like this.

    The only question is if I should play the game with a controller or if I should pull out my cockpit. The downside to pulling out my cockpit is it is hooked up my HTPC which isn't exactly a powerhouse these days. (E8600 + 4GB DDR2 + 8800GT 512)

    If I use the keyboard and or game pad I can play on my gaming rig....
