I tried the Forza 3 demo on PC btw. Graphics are unbelievable, smooth and with astonishing detail and draw distance. Never seen a driving game look this good.

The game plays extremely well too.

I will definitely buy it when the i8 is released for it

Played it at 4K with all ULTRA settings btw.





It looks a LOT sharper and better on PC when playing than in the YouTube video. I think YouTube compression spoils the sharpness and colours.

Virtual reality is upon us. One of my sons is involved in research for 'cognitive enhancement'. He says he will have both pharmaceuticals and digital implant 'cards' to make my brain work better. I think he wants to hijack my brain.

VR is pretty cool though.

I've been using PS VR on PS4 Pro, and the games are very impressive.

I'm waiting for gen 2 PC headsets with 4K before getting a PC set.

As the game is set in Australia, I hope the wheel is on the correct side of the car

Driving games with i8?

Instead of the usual games I recommend using the Game Mod version, it will give you a higher feeling than the regular version, happyandroid when I see a lot of games speed here.
