In their latest studio update, Bizarre Creations released an image taken during a test of the company's crowd system for Project Gotham Racing 3. Although the sight of 35,000 spectators on one track corner may be very impressive, Bizarre has been keen to point out that the final game won't be populated by quite that figure – though it will still be in the thousands.
Perhaps more remarkable is the comment made by Bizarre that even with such a high number of spectators on trackside, the frame rate of the game didn't drop below its normal figure. The developer has also remarked that some members of the crowd (all motion captured) will carry cameras that they'll lift above their heads to get a better shot!
