I've played the pc demo and it's a lousy and lazy port. The graphics are dull, the driving is ok, but the gamepad, which I use because i'm too lazy to set up my steering wheel every time I play, has no input options at all. The menu is shit, the garage is still the same as always. I see no reason to buy it.

^whut? I've tried with the Xbox 360 USB controller and the Xbox 360 wheel (the original) on the PC and it's pretty great.

What do you mean no input options at all? I changed the rear view button to the right stick (click) because that's what I'm used to. You can individually set buttons on the 360 controller...

No sensitivity settings is what I meant.

Handling has improved when using the Fanatec wheel. The force feedback could be a bit better IMO but I can live with that. Engine sound is fantastic this time. Tried it on the 360. Day one as usual for me.

Well I tried the PS3 demo and I really enjoyed this. Maybe its because I didnt play any F1 before, but really nice. One thing I would like to highlight is the awesome music and graphics in menu. So clean and stylish. Great! :-o
