Hi,

In short, you can use any USB Display devices or EMU like the VDASH-EMU supported by SLIMax Manager Pro with your PS4 or XB1 Console… but wait! the current UDP API of Assetto Corsa is really poor so don’t expect to have the same information as on PC version. lap, speed, rpm, gear, basic  current/last/best lap time and that’s it!

As usual Check For Update to get the latest plugins and read the installation topic to download the bridge.
