Is anyone going to buy this new karting program when it is released?

Maybe, but it's too early to say. Until now there are only big words and a video which doesn't show much about the final game.

I personaly don't like their big announcements without offering facts. Maybe the announced beta will give us more infos.
What makes me thoughtful is that they also want to realease it for PS3 and XBox. I'm only interested if it's a 100% sim with a realistic behavior. 

If a trial version is available, I'll surely test it (like most people here, I guess). - But they have a far way to top the realism of KRP.

I don't like the way that the chassis moves on the video.
Also there will  be a subscribtion payment like iRacing.

As dibu said if there is a trial version, i might give it a try.

I think it's still in early development.
I didn't like a couple of things...
- The engine sound... I think it sounds unreal
- No driver present... I really hate those sims with no driver or no hand movement. It's kart K.I.T.T.  :)
It seems like the kart/car has a life on it's own.

They left it out so you could see chassis movement better.

If that's true I definitely won't play the game.

Same for me, I didn't know about a subscription.

You don't pay for the game in once, but you pay every month or year to drive.

They can improve the game though becuase they are constantly making money. IRacing has done very well

That is true, but this way some people can't afford to play kartSim, because it's to expensive.

Pricing will be an annual subscription fee, which includes all content released during the year...


Quote from Zach Griffin.
Hi Guys,

Just to clarify the annual subscription fee: This is a one off annual fee that includes all released content for the game. This allows us to keep delivering high quality content to you guys continually throughout the year. You do not have to pay for individual karts and circuits...


Q:What i don't understand is do you need to pay every year or just one time?
A:Every year, so we will be able to keep giving you updates
