GT3 Question

I've played GT3 a few times, and I love it (not mine:( ) And everytime I play, I try to remember one thing, before the the PS2 was released, they said they were gonna improve the controller by have new buttons. The new buttons would be able to detect wether you are pushing it all the way down or only halfway, what this means is that you can mantain a certian speed, un like in GT2 (PS1) where the accelerator was down flat, or not down at all.
But I can't remember to check this when I goto my mates place (because I floor it like hell:D and am also sooooo impreased by the graphics:eek: ) so to all those lucky bastards out there with a PS2 (and GT3) please check this for me?
It'll be cool if they folowed through with the idea:eek:eek:

Yes the buttons are anolog, but why would you bother using them for a racing game when youve got the anolog sticks??

I don't think you get where I'm coming from, it would be helpful in games where you need to take it easy, so to speak.:rolleyes:

From the impressions I've gotten of the game, the buttons aren't pressure sensitive! Would have certainly been a good option! If you wanna check out a game with pressure sensitive compatibility, check out Tokyo Racer Zero (the street racing game!) I've got that game and it certainly does have that option inbuilt into it!

In regards to GT3, just tap the buttons to maintain your speed around corners or what-have-you. Or you can always oversteer if you've got a RWD car :D

I don't think anyone would use it for a racing game, just used GT3 as an example, BTW, would'nt it be cool if GT3 had a safetycar option??!! :rolleyes:

The throttle button on GT3 is pressure sensitive, you can tell this by being able to hold the revs at any position at the start compared with the old controller where it is either flat out revs or no revs.

Yeah they are definately pressure sensitive in GT3, and yes I know where your coming from Pritesh, but IMO the buttons arnt needed in a racing game.
