The slomo at 0:39 looks seriously awesome; suspension moving realistically, front wing bouncing like the real thing.
If they get the AI and racing behaviour right this time, this will be a winner for sure.

Yeah, but: No Manual Start, No real Damages, No SC, No Real Physics... and:

Q:AndyDYoung: Will F1 2011 feature the podium?

Steve Hood: We considered the podium but that’s been done to death in Formula One games so, for this year, we’ve included Parc Ferme which is more immediate and personal.

-----------------------------------------------------

Q:MattMarquard: Has the crash damage improved? And if it’s not in this game, proper deforming tyre barriers would be cool. Almost like in Grid.

Steve Hood: We’re balancing the damage so the cars are more fragile but as for an overhaul of the damage system, we’d like to, but feel there are bigger things to tackle first.

WHAT? THERE ARE BIGGER THINGS TO TACKLE THAN DAMAGE SYSTEM?

------------------------------------------------------------------

Q:Woodsy921: Have the mirrors been fixed, can you see anything behind you?

Steve Hood: The mirrors are so small I don’t think they will ever be amazingly helpful – we have new on-screen indicators to help you locate chasing drivers.

This is not a F1 game, This is Madness...

    Tiz @Moonwalker: Finished in time for what? The game will be a Destiny-type affair, launch something serviceable and then pile content on later. (0 minute ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I just read IGN's Sea of Thieves article and it's clear that Rare has a lot planned for this game. I just wonder if they can have all of that finished in time. (2 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz This is their plan for most of their games, if not all of their 1st party IP going forward. (8 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz People say Gears & Halo aren't as big as they used to be, while that is true, they've traded unit sales for microtransactions which is proving very profitable for them. (9 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Cultivating new studios takes time. MS have only demonstrated interest in established brands. If they can drop 2.5billion on Mohjang, then it is a very deliberate decision to not open/buy new studios. (11 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I could be wrong on this but didn't Phil Spencer say he wanted SoT to be a long term thing? A returning franchise like Halo, Gears and Forza? (20 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Back in October the Rare team didn't even confirm it for this year but going by what MS said, it seems to be a 2017 title now, (21 minutes ago)
