    No current gen version? Seriously?

    Check this out: SquareEnix ported Tomb Raider to the new consoles and it yielded great results for them, take notes Codies: http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2014/05/09/favorable-sales-of-new-gen-tomb-raider-propel-square-enix-turnaround.aspx

    Code Masters has stated that PC is lead platform which means they are technically optimizing the game for hardware that is as good or better than a PS4 or Xbox One. All they need to do is make it compatible with the OS itself.

    Being able to buy new isn't the indicator, the indicator is what products are on the market. You could buy new PS2's well into the PS3/X360 life cycle. The point is that the PS4 and the XB1 are the "current" generation of consoles in the proper use of the term. I would hardly consider 8 year old hardware to be "current" when the current systems have been out for about 6 months.

    That's the big thing for me. As a business opportunity there is a HUGE cash cow waiting to happen and it seems like a bad oversight to miss that.

    I was hoping that instead of taking into account a few forum posts they would consider the 13 million plus who already own an Xbox One or PS4.

    That doesn't make sense. They began work on this right after Grid 2, and the next gen tech has been out to developers for longer than that.

    Don't forget how big of a company EA is. Indeed. I've been in the (non-gaming) software industry for 20-odd years, and in my experience there is very rarely such a thing as a "simple port". Yeah I agree EA must have at least twice if not 3 times the money and resources CM do and some of EA's games have similar types of bugs as CM's as well as I've been hit by savegame bugs and what have you even in their gamers so it's pretty clear that it's not that straightforward Well if you look at what EA does, they literally build separate versions for each system. All we're asking for is a straight PC port. There's a big difference between building a game from the ground up for a new system and taking an existing game and simply making if function on another OS. All they have to do is take the PC version and make it compatible with the new console's operating systems (which is what the majority of game developers do for their games anyways).  maybe but it's also entirely possible that the Ego engine that CM use for their racing titles in it's current state isn't compatible with the Next gen systems after all CM have said whrn they're ready to go next gen with a game they'll let us know. They said they don't want to do a halfway job with next gen they said when they start putting together games for the new systems they will be fully focused on making things right on those systems. I'd buy that if I haven't already seen straight ports with little to no difference between the previous gen version and what I played. Tomb Raider comes to mind, outside of a resolution boost and a few textures it's basically the same. Compatibility relies on the OS of the console, not the "technology" behind how they built the game. Anything can be tailored to be compatible with the new systems.

    There are plenty of games that already did this and there was no uproar. The early adoption rate of the new consoles is higher than it's ever been in history.

    Well said. Drive Club and Project CARS alone are going to be very steep competition, let alone with GT7 rolls along.

    yes granted if there's a flaw or flaws then there would no doubt be endless threads about it but i genuinely think you could get away with stating from the off its a "last gen /current gen whatever" game simply made accessible to next gen owners because of the lack of games in the racing genre, I mean considering what alternatives are available I would think that would be acceptable  Exactly. And if they can make it for the more advanced PC specs, they can make it for the new consoles as well. Just needs to run on the PS4/XB1 OS that's all.

    Which is what we are missing for some reason right now.  at the moment it would appear they don't yet have the resources to do it right now or if they do they're not quite ready yet That's their own fault for screwing up Grid 2 at the end of a console generation's life cycle and then trying to fix it after the new systems are already on the market.

    That's way too much PR bull crap. Other companies have given us excellent ports that we were happy to take so far. The PC port would be welcomed with open arms. The whole "next gen tech" is the biggest pile of you know what I've ever heard. I mean seriously, the PC market has better hardware than the "new" consoles at this point and you had no problem putting on PC. Not all of your customers are that stupid to accept that answer.

    I still don't understand the "well the previous gen are still the majority." By that logic, Code Masters should be making games for the previous gen for the next few years. Part of the reason Grid 2 didn't sell as well is because it was nearing the end of the previous gen's life cycle and the same thing happened to GT6. There is tons of money to be earned by making this for next gen, even as a straight port with no upgrades or bells and whistles. To not grab that opportunity is madness.
