Vlog #28 – The Big Announcement
Authentic, Immersive and Accurate – Using the steering, pedal and gear controls found in a proper racing car, a racing simulator enables you to drive the car of your choice on real-life circuits, replicated in incredible detail, for a fraction of the real cost.
Simulators replicate real-life handling and variables like tyre wear and car setup. You’ll also feel feedback from the controls as you push the car to the limit.
Whereas racing/arcade games often remove ‘real-world’ elements to give you a sense of speed, racing sims aim to be as close as possible to reality – they are purpose-built to be accurate, which doesn’t necessarily mean easy.
This level of detail means that simulators can cost over 100x more than a typical console racing game setup – but with 100% more excitement!
