They could probably be a little bit more creative with the front cover but hey, it's F1 so I'll buy it regardless.

I hope for next gen visuals this time round. There is a clear pedigree downgrade from the visual potency of DiRT to the visuals found in last years F1. Running of the same engines makes this desparity inexcusable, hopefully that's rectified this time round.

The driving looks amazing. Will buy this one for sure! They should be making a replica formula 1 steering wheel for this game looking like the one in the video

Maybe because Formula One has 24 cars at the same track that all need AI and physics calculations? Maybe because Formula One has dynamic weather and a track that has to remeber the amount of rubber and water laid down on specific places?

I only hope for a 'real' AI throughout the whole race instead of the system they used last year where slow cars were the fasted of the field because they had to make up time they lost earlier. This spiced up with a better damage model and improved physics will make it a winner for me :)

    Tiz @GriftGFX: I think MS were in full on panic mode because they wanted to add value to their box, so they showed everything. (12 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (12 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (12 Hours ago)

    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (12 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (12 Hours ago)
