I have read in a dutch magazine called 'M-Auto' that 'VRC Pro' is in final stage, and they will start beta testing soon. Though, this testing will be done by a selection of 'active' players in the game. From what I've heard, VRC Pro will contain offroad as well.

The magazine says 'we expect the full version to be released near the beginning of 2011'.

The thing is a bad plan is better than no plan at all. So at this point anything is better than nothing.

I ran into something similar about 5 years ago when i was developing an application. The early stages of the app were amazing and i kept pushing for more and more features because i wanted to sell the ultimate app of its kind. Even though the app as it stood in the early stages was head and shoulders better than anything else, i kept pushing. I wanted something to blow the competition away. Well each feature we added made it better but required more testing to work out the bugs. Each step/feature took longer and longer. We got to the point where the app was great but had some critical flaws due to things we kept layering on top and its main function didn't work as good as it once did. At this time my programmer quit on me. He took the money i was sending him and ran away. He no longer wanted any part of it, but i still had the source code. Well i tried to get others to troubleshoot it, but that never worked out.

So in the end i ended up with an app that was broken and unsellable. I had wrapped up countless hours and thousands of dollars into something that was useless. In the end i had nothing.

Had i released it early on and just kept improving it as i went along, i would have had money in the bank, customers using my software and the ability to hire whomever i needed to get things done. But i put all my eggs in one basket and learned my lesson the hard way. I just hope thats not what is happening here. With gt5 you have a multi billion dollar company behind it, with vrc you don't. So no signs of anything at this point is a BAD sign, and thats just the truth. No betas, no nothing.
