Project CARS Studio Head “Really Dislikes Nintendo Users”

Project CARS gets more heat that most third-party developers from Nintendo fans. Developer Slightly Mad Studios is not blameless in the matter — they initially promised a Wii U version of the game in their crowdfunding campaign and made numerous statements regarding the “fine” progress on the Nintendo version. Then, out of the blue, they put the Wii U version of Project CARS on an indefinite hiatus, pointing to serious optimization issues.

With this in mind, many Wii U owners and backers have flocked to the Project CARS forums asking for answers. While most responses have been civil from the developers, Slightly Mad’s Head of Studio, Ian Bell, had enough with one particular Wii U rant and went on to say “we really dislike Nintendo users.” Check out the entire conversation below.

Project CARS has been released for Xbox, PlayStation, and PC — Slightly Mad is hoping to bring over the game and series to Nintendo NX.

      1. Maybe Nintendo asked them to hold off so they can put it on the NX and show it at E3 next year. *shrug*

        I do think he was being sarcastic but still shouldn’t have said it.

      2. I doubt it since they promise the game since 2012 and they said constantly that the project was going well for the Wii U
        Was it sarcasm or not is irrelevant, this still show how unproffesional they are have they said that they were having problems during development instead of doing the “yeah it’s comming” then people wouldn’t be as Mad
        When you promise something for a long time To people, of Course they gonna get mad when you don’t keep your promises

      3. I don’t disagree with you. I said he shouldn’t have said it. But we don’t know what happened behind the scenes. There really should be more transparency in these situations. I know all too well that the gaming industry hides a lot of things though.

      4. Yeah you are right
        And here the funny thing this was originally a Wii U/PC only game Xbone and Ps4 weren’t even in consideration which makes me think that Project Cars is a Pc port which may explain why the game runs a 30fps there nothing bad with 30fps games but for fast paste games especially like Hack n Slash and racing game having the game run only at 30 it’s a questionable decition

      5. The game was originally PC. Wii U AND PS3/360 were added in after. And then it switched over to PC, PS4/XB1 and Wii U…. And in that same source thread the article takes from, Mr. Bell notes how the Wii U version was suppose to be cancelled along with the PS3/360 versions (but wasn’t).

      6. The stated back in 2013 that it was not a port. They said the wii u version was being made on its own, so ps4/xone capabilities should not matter at all. I wont buy the game even if it finnaly cones to wii u, they do not deserve our money, because they have alredy receiced our attention and patience for years. The wii u was suppist to have less graphics, it is ovious, so trying to make it like the other versuons was absurd. Im so disapoibted with them

      7. Well, in the truest sense the Wii U version may as well not be a port as it would require a lot of work to get it to reach the ‘OK’ zone. And even if it is a port, that doesn’t mean it’s a bad thing. The developers are the ones who make the game, and if they wish to push or emphasize on a feature in the game, then that is their own wishes for the game. Some people would be willing to say the Wii U version would be inferior if it didn’t have comparable visuals to the other versions.

        If you do not believe it’s worth it to purchase the game, then that is something you decided, not myself or others (hopefully); however, I don’t believe that rage should be as misguided as much as so many people here lead on. If you have a legitimate annoyance with the developers, that is not the misinformed claim I denounced, then by all means speak your mind as you just did.

      8. Oh FFS, it was NEVER a WiiU/PC only game, the WiiU was added AFTER the PS3/360.. the original proposal was for a F2P PC only game with micro transactions.. the community asked for the game to be made as a proper retail product with console launch too… the WiiU was added about 12 months into the dev. When the Next Gens were announced the community VOTED to move to next gen and actually wanted to drop the WiiU at that point, SMS themselves said it wanted to continue with the WiiU… There was actually only about 6 months between work starting on WiiU and the next gen consoles

        I really wish the WiiU community could get their bloody facts straight, but with so much BS being spouted as fact in various, misinformed, Chinese whispers on various Nintendo fan sites, it’s no surprise you lot have no idea what you are talking about… those few who actually put their money into Project CARS are oddly very quiet about the events as they actually know why there was a delay in the WiiU development… try finding some and asking for some real facts (not that you will either believe the facts or accept them as the truth)

        Hell, I saw a WiiU owner actually claim that the game was a WiiU exclusive in 2010.. really, two years before N even announced the platform…

        Oh and lastly, not one person who put money into the development of Project CARS will be out of pocket, so all this BS about not getting what you “paid” for.. you always had an option for a refund and if you didn’t get one, you will have to put up with getting your money back with interest from the profits on sales..!

      1. Xbox and PS4 were the last to be added but Wii U came in the middle. It was first PC then Xbox 360 and PS3 were added. After Wii U was added. PS3 and Xbox 360 were cancelled theeeen PS4 and Xbox One were added.

        Sucks that only the PC, PS4, and Xbox One versions were released though. PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U versions should have been released as well since it was a crowdfunding project. If it was only publisher and dev funding, we wouldn’t have a problem.

    2. This story goes a lot further back. At one point, before the xbone and ps4 were even announced, they were touting the Wii u as the definitive console experience for this game, on par with the PC version as it was able to take advantage of the fact that Wii u has more power than 360/ps3.

      3. I won’t explain his rude comment, as I would fully agree it was in bad taste. That remark was a sarcastic response, if you read the actual thread he goes into more details about it, but that still doesn’t justify his rudimentary action whatsoever.

        However, isn’t it hypocritical of you to be calling his actions rude, but not reflecting on your own rude actions? Of course, I don’t expect you to reflect on your actions. You probably consider your distasteful actions as justice and would disregard it being as rude under that premises… You are implicitly stating that they lie, that they cheated people/conned them out of their money, and that they should be sued for such an action. Well, here’s the thing: You can get your money back if you don’t like the way development is going. That isn’t cheating anyone out of their money if they ALWAYS have that option. You cannot sue on that basis when the option to opt out is always available to you. Nintendo has lied before in the past too, so where is all that hate they are getting? They promised that the Wii U would be for those hard core Nintendo fans, but then they go on and start advertising it as the opposite of what they claimed! Where is your hate on them for that? Not answering this will prove a point, so go ahead and ignore it if you would.

        Because it would endanger their business with Nintendo (NOT the fans)? Because the developers may be under contract/gag-order to not say anything? Because stating it may result in a loss of sales? Basically, the crap you’re doing right now.

        Mr. bell also admitted it was their fault, and nobody elses, that they cannot get the game to run on the Wii U, as they went overboard with physics implementations for the tyre system…. Slightly Mad Studios also updated their information on the Wii U version well before this whole event happened, noting an ‘upcoming article’ would be released discussing the matter, on their website….You want an answer? This is a summarized answer for you and your uninformed opinion.

        Bandai is still a business first. They can put some games on Nintendo systems and help out with others. That doesn’t mean they’ll put all of their products on it.

    I obviously don’t know the number of people who backed their project with the goal of playing the game on Wii U, but I do believe they should be fully refunded.

    The amount of false advertising regarding the Wii U version was such that I wouldn’t be surprised to see someone launch a class-action lawsuit against them.

    Although some studios are a shining example of how to run campaigns, guys like these just help give the crowdfunding platform a bad name.

I’m glad I don’t support kickstarters and all that. Otherwise I’d be furious. But this was very poor taste and disrespectful on his part. Yes, there are fans who go way over the top and harass developers, but this post was nothing of the sort and did not deserve the comment. And for those who are saying he was being sarcastic, if that truly is the case, he needs to learn how to present his sarcasm better, which is certainly possible. I can usually pick up sarcasm, but in this case, I never got the sense of sarcasm until reading some of the comments on here.

I know many gamers might feel as Ian Bell does and simply dismiss an entire segment of potential customers at a whim, but to pose a valid issue with Slightly Mad on their forum and have the head of the studio dismissively and condescendingly respond is an utter slap in the face!

    Even though it clearly was sarcastic, it also showed his complete disregard or concern for any Nintendo supporters and possibly even distain at us for putting him on the spot.

    2. The game was crowd funded, but it was different from normal crowdfunding methods. Firstly, it wasn’t done through Kickstarter like most people claim it was. Secondly, those who invest an amount into the game receive back monetary value from sales when the product is released (ie. they make back money on their investment), Furthermore, the game started off as a PC only title, but according to Mr. Bell, the project switched over to a console + PC game from the wishes of the investors (backers). From there it was developed into a PC, PS3, 360 and Wii U title. Then the PS3 and 360 versions were canned and replaced with the PS4 and XB1 versions.

      There is no legitimate claim that the game was PC and Wii U exclusive.

      At the very least, the far majority of people who are ranting did not invest in the game, so it’s safe to ignore them. I didn’t invest in the game myself, and I was disappointed with the news, but that’s business. Rather than be disappointed, I can still play it on another platform, like the PC, which it was originally made for.

      Also, p3n0rz’s statement is partially incorrect. Read my reply to their post ;)

      1. I’m glad someone can at least look at the facts instead of going into a blind rage about something that likely has no affect on them.

        Unprofessional move by the dev, for sure. Wii U version should have been made if backers supported the project for Wii U. But don’t start pulling out false claims about the project.

        Kudos.

  20. Meh, after all the anticipation for it as a Wii U title, then having to go PS4 for the game, you’re not really losing anything. Stick to Mario Kart, and I’m probably trading this in on Forza 6 in September.

    1. Except the money around 30% backers put towards the project, that’s more than the PC version backers; in fact, the Wii U version was the number 1 most wanted version, according to the developers’ polls.

  21. PS3 and Xbox 360 backers never got the game either. Those games were completely cancelled. They didn’t even get an indefinite delay like the Wii U. I think those owners and funders have reason to be upset as well.

    1. So two wrongs make a right? Or how else is this exactly relevant?
      Yes, those backers have every reason to complain, how does that make Bell’s response towards Wii U backers any more defensible?

      1. I think the question is, are you done trying to justify Bell with petty responses and cheap fallacies?

      2. Because 1) I wasn’t arguing anything. I made a statement and you made a crazy reply to it; pulling out nonexistent implications and insinuations. And 2) you have already proven yourself to be unreasonable in this article alone.

      3. As nicely written as that was, its message was basically “I understand that it’s business, but I won’t support your business because it’s against Nintendo fans”.

        Since that wasn’t posted in the investor/backer specific forum, you can read the thread and all of its replies if you want.

  22. 30% (Number of WIi U backers according to SMS own polls) of $5,000,000 is $1,500,000, and that’s not even counting the PS3 and 360 backers who also got scammed.
    Conversely, the lowest number of backers were for the XB1 and PS4 versions.
    But guess which are the versions available today.

    Even if they announce the Wii U version again, I hope everyone here would boycott Project Cars.

  24. Well, was gonna buy it on Wii U to support the Wii U version’s sales, but after the hiatus announcement I figured i’d get it on PC or something. After reading this I won’t be buying it on any platform. That’s unprofessional as hell.

    And they know a lot of their hype and support came from Nintendo fans so that’s especially dickish.

  25. I understand if he does not like the reaction to putting the Wii U version on Hiatus, after all it’s a sensible business decision. However saying you really dislike nintendo users is REALLY unprofessional and could hurt your sales in the future.

  27. There is no way this could be a sarcasm, Why he replied to such gentle post (even if the OP not aware or don’t have any idea about game development) with “undisciplined” words? Or he probably lack elegance… either way, unacceptable.

  28. Funny thing is that this game had a good chance to make a great impact if it was released for the Wii U as on all other platforms there are already better options for the race sim enthusiast. it was an opportunity to make a difference.
    Just to give an example I could get ‘Project CARS’ for PC but I chose the superior ‘Assetto Corsa’ instead, still I would buy ‘Project CARS’ for the Wii U because there’s nothing like it on that platform but when given different choices, like on PC, I chose something better.

  29. I doubt he would’ve said the same of Sony fans, even if they were acting like turds (as we often do). I don’t know why it’s acceptable for third parties to be openly hostile towards Nintendo fans.

    1. It’s not acceptable in any way. But don’t pretend it only happens to Nintendo fans.

      For example, I can’t post the link here (we can’t post links anymore) but if you look up how Kamiya responded to some Bayonetta fans who wanted the game on PlayStation, you’ll see bad treatment that way too. His words were quite explicit.

  31. Man, you are idiot, you really think you can say something like this when you have done only two games and they are exactly the same? Really? Usually people who say this stupid things are important but you…..no you are nothing. In fact this game will only be succesfull in wiiu, in xbox one we have Forza and i know your game is not good enough comparing to it and ps4 users dont play with this type of games and i dont think you are going to sell much copies in ps4. So you can take away your piece of shit and give it to your dog, maybe your pet will appreciate this much than we
