  1. It would be great it those shortcuts were also available on PS4 version.
    Imposible for now to switch race line on or off without geting out of race, lobby, go back in options, change it and go back with your friends.
    I do like to use line in practice but would turn it off for qualification and race.
    Please allow a button to map raceline on/off or make shortcuts available on console.
    Big thanks for great things you do !

  2. Thus the age old battle of Consoles vs PC. As an OG gamer (NES, the other old console from 90's I can't remember, PC, and PS3) I use both PS3 and PC for gaming. Each is better than the other for certain games. For simulations like this I prefer PC, as PC you can really change things based on hardware, plus easier for joysticks, yokes, wheels, etc. I use PC for Project cars. Basically PC for anything unless things are only console (like Madden or whatever it's called now, sure wish they'd bring back the PC version). Plus PC allows for so much more modding. I still play Madden 08 on PC, updated 2015 rosters, and Nascar racing 2003, plenty of mods there also. Consoles are awesome and portable, and maybe someday there were really be a way to mod games. That and keyboard shortcuts like these are the only missing factor to me.
