ive got dirt 3 on the xbox, its good for rallying but not great theres load of drifting junk that you go through as well that takes it away from being a pure rally game. It does have rallycross and raid trucks and other stuff in there, and a hell of a lot of cool historical cars. Not sure how it compares the playstation should be pretty much identical.
I'm a PS3 user, nerver seen an XBox in action so can't speak about that.
The PS3 is a great system, Gran Turismo 5 is awesome, (Forza Motorsport on XBox looks impressive too??), the beauty of the PS3 is that it also performs as a Blueray DVD, you can store video/images/music on it, it can connect wirelessly to your PC and play your music and video, it acts like a media server, all clever stuff. The on-line gameplay is amazing, you can race with folks from all around the world.
"Perfect control" Phil? Looks like you ran wide on that last bend....
Sweet, can it download straight from the PS3 to youtube then? Never seen/used this feature.
I have Dirt and Dirt2 so can't really justify Dirt3 too, still playing GT5 whenerver I get a bit of spare time. I buy very few games so like to make sure the ones I do buy gey plenty of use.
Having never played on an xBox or PS3 for any length of time, I really cant comment on either, but I do race on the PC. No console, in my opinion, comes close to the PC, for graphics and physics. I dont have a fancy setup, but a standard PC with a £50 graphics card in, and a wheel.
F1 2011 on PC looks gorgeous, and the physics are superb, you really can 'feel' the tyres going off and the car move around under you! Havnt got Dirt3, I've been a little disappointed with other Dirt games, but I might give this another shot.
How can you say it doesn't come close when you hevent played a ps3 , 5 years ago yes pc games were far better ps3 has caught up and demolished pc games , with a good hd tv and hdmi cable you get much more bang for your buck than a pc.
I also have Dirt3 and have to say it is fantastic. I am just starting so do not know if it will remain fun or will become just too draining. You can definitely enjoy it without going beserke with the
I confess that think it is pretty cool that you can pay to get new cars available. Imagine a virtual collection of rally cars!! I got recently the Lancia Stratos and the Peugeot 205 and will soon get the Lancia Delta S4, BMW M3 and Ford Sierra Cosworth. Each car costs $2. The Monte Carlo stages are also add ons. It would be insane if the cars available would grow to cover most of the rally cars from the 60's-90's. I do not know how faithful is the physics of each car. Does anyone know anything about this?
Well, I went and investigate and would like to clarify that there will not be anymore add ons. So the hypothesis of having all rally cars or any more rally stages available on Dirt3 will not happen (the developers are already thinking of another game). What a shame! This is the problem of computer games, they come and go. But still Dirt3 is a great experience, but it could have been phenomenal.
