F1 2012 will be available next week on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, but this week Codemasters put online on the three platforms a demo showing the new Young Driver Test mode and a Season Challenge race on Monza. Thus we've made some PC videos to wait until the full version.

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

    GriftGFX I think we're going to see some real "next-gen" shit in the next few years. But a few years is a long time in tech. My CPU is "old" too (2600K) and still getting the job done. (54 minutes ago)

  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @GriftGFX: I have a GTX 670 from when i built my comp about 2.5 years ago. The rest of the system is still very good so i think a new GPU can make it last another 2.5 years or so (56 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Melmoth: MSI Twin Frozr.. love it. Have not noticed any out of spec whine or noise. The fan controller did have some issues but MSI released a new firmware already. (59 minutes ago)
