Yes, Sophy is only available for the PS5.


I'm going to drink this Hitachino Nest white ale and two Sappporos before checking out this update. Gonna be fun, haven't had a drink in over 1.5 years, and had one yesterday, and will have these three. LOL

Did the weekly challenge easily (even tried 50PP below the recommended). So I tried a few Sophy races on the hardest/pro/what ever they called it. Used a 400R. One race was all stock minus aero bits. Was hard only due to being under powered compared to the top 3 cars. So I tried adding race suspension and tranny, LSD, and the ECU and adjusted things to how I like it. Made short work of Sophy. Only thing I really noticed were Sophy trying to avoid you drafting, and dive bombing.

So not exactly what I was expecting, but still better than the default AI.

Dang. Not sure when I’ll get a chance to see what that’s like as I doubt I’ll ever buy a PS5. Probably gonna wait for PS6 at this point.

On the flip side, might be worth upgrading to a PS5 because PS4s are still worth a decent amount of money. If you wait for a PS6, PS4s won't be worth as much.

Not me. I knew I was going to regret not doing that. Eh, I have all the cars I care about

If they didn't add the weekly challenges I might have. Doing those maybe I'll save up and buy a 20 mil car next fall just to do it haha

Haven't really been playing. I just did a lap or two for the time trials and stopped. Actually haven't been playing any games the past 3 weeks very much.

I feel like with that track, that last corner is EVERYTHING. My final attempt I took the corner correctly and gained like 0.6s

That one and Monroe Ridge I felt are the areas where you make or break time, the ghost I loaded had an interesting racing line that I just couldn't replicate on Monroe.

Castrol Corner is all about choosing a breaking point before the 50FT sign. Rabbits Ear is about throttle control.



I chickened out on the Sweeper (Last Corner) because I never know when exactly to ease up.

Not a fan of Daytona at all, but doing the GT3 RS Challenge is super fun, that car is just nuts.

I'm just not into Porsches very much. Lol. So that didn't help with the TT.
