It says so, but with the same usual warning as with all online sites that it can't be guaranteed and they can't be held responsible, yada yada yada! :thumbsup:

game seems to be rushed by the looks of things

£31.19, when i pre ordered mine:thumbsup:]http//uk…tml

Works for PS3 version too, top stuff! :thumbsup:

indeed

why rushed, did you read the reviews??

Good price but not sure whether to buy it as this series is normally a prime candidate for £20 or less around xmas time.

Does Argos take the money now, being it's a pre-order?

As far as I've heard yes they do... however it comes it in less than a week...:thumbsup:

Just ordered mine for £31.19 delivered so definitely should NOT be expired

Playing it now. Pretty good but the chase cam view is a bit naff. Seems a lot twitchier than cockpit view. Excellent presentation though and lots to do, bonuses for different things, mastering corners, clean overtakes etc.
|Yeah, all in all it's not at all bad.

What format please, PS3, 360 etc...? If 360 do you have to be a Gold Live customer?

Am hoping that this is like a sequel to Project Gotham 2.

Thanks, some of them you do though, usually the new ones. Are you playing it on XB then? I was holding off updating mine for the Free60 hack but all has gone quiet.

I suspect he's playing a dodgy copy.
It was released to the scene yesterday, and available on various servers and newsgroups.

The only time you should have to be a gold member is if the demo is entirely on-line game play, hence you would need a gold membership, I've never come across any other demo that has needed a gold membership to download?

OK, fair enough, I concur to the masses.:thumbsup:

So can anyone tell me if I should bother updating my Xbox please, i.e. is the demo out on Marketplace. Don't really want to update if not.

Cheers.

I'm not sure actually, I'm not on my xbox at the moment but after checking xbox.com it looks like it isn't

Of course he's playing a dodgy copy, cos he's a criminal and a moron.

But yes, the game has gotten good reviews and wasn't by the traditional developers so people need to stop coming out with the generic 'ITS RUSHED!111' comments.

Good deal, may get it myself.

The last few NFS's have been crap.

I would advise anyone in their right minds to NOT buy another NFS game ever!

That would be your personal opinion :thumbsup: Also please read the above comment stating that this isn't made by the usual suspects and therefore is completely different than recent previous releases :whistling:

Yeah, it's not made by EA and not aimed at chavved up Ford Orion drivers. It's made by a company that has developed respectable PC racing sims.

IGN said that although not as realistic as Gran Turismo/Forza it has by far the most enjoyable driving experience whilst still being reasonably realistic.

NFS: Undercover was great, however as has already been said several times this is a completely different game. Looks like a GRID rip off to me ;-)

The first four NFS games were aimed at the same sort of audience as Shift, about ten years before GRID was even conceived...

NFS wasn't always all about lurid paint and underbody neons...

Which four NFS games? I've not played many of the original ones but the ones I have played weren't proper circuit based games liek GRID is. The better ones were just police getaway ones :-)

And I meant this looks like GRID in every single way. It could be good I like GRID :thumbsup:

OK, so not quite GRID circuit racing but the emphasis was more on racing supercars on road circuits, rather than what "street racing" generally means today, i.e. no pimped out supercars, drag racing etc...

C'mon, I think there is a little bit in this yet...

Heat added.

BTW this code expires tonight.

I'm still undecided, the graphics look great, but the car handling looks a bit iffy.
