Logitech Driving Force
As you take your seat and start your motor, check your controls one last time. Whether this is a new course to you - or an old adversary - you'll need to keep your eyes on the track and, for the most part, feel the device that controls your actions. The design and test teams behind Logitech® Driving Force have spent long hours with fully working design prototypes, positioning the clusters of controls around this world-class race wheel, to ensure that they are easy to find, enabling you to optimise your driving performance in any make of car - and experience a new level of enjoyment in Gran Turismo 4 and other PlayStation 2 driving games. As you drive your car to its limits you will be experiencing the full power of realistic force feed-back. Every time you change direction, scrape a wall, hit new terrain, brake or accelerate, the dynamic forces from powerful mechanism inside the wheel will deliver astonishingly realistic force feedback - designed to keep you in close contact with the on-screen action - even when you're totally off the ground!
Gran Turismo 4
In the winter of 1997, the original Gran Turismo changed the history of racing games. This year, Gran Turismo 4 will cause another revolution to the world of racing games. Gran Turismo was the pioneer for introducing a new playing style by allowing players to spend just as much time watching and enjoy replays of their performance as racing.
Gran Turismo 4's new Director Mode (or B-Spec) is based on the premise of playing through the replay view angle only. A "Racing RPG" so to speak, B-Spec = Director Mode introduces the "Gran Turismo that players don't drive". In B-Spec = Director Mode, the game proceeds in the replay view point (Broadcast view) from the start of the race. GT4 includes the traditional experience where players participate and drive for themselves, referred to as A-spec. But this time, players will also have the option to be the director or race team manager of their race, and not have to worry about driving (as B-spec).
B-Spec = Director Mode brings a new experience to racing games, in which players driving themselves has previously been the standard. In B-spec, players give directions, taking on the role of a race team manager, giving directions to their A.I. driver and competing in their races. This mode can be applied to all of the races available in GT4, and does not standalone as a game mode by itself. Players can complete all of the races included in GT Mode by using B-Spec = Director Mode, without driving themselves at all. Players who had difficulty in racing can now take the option of carefully preparing their car for a race, sharing the excellence and exhilarating excitement of racing in a whole new style of racing games. That is what B-Spec = Director Mode is all about.
