It's a very good game. From the website (rfactorcentral) you can download almost any car/track you can think of for it. The realism isn't as good as in LiveForSpeed or iracing, but I still play it sometimes when I fancy a trip around the Nurburgring, or a go on the next F1 track. Must be hot for 1p!

HOT. Did they have many?

Boxes full at the checkout at Farnborough

Wanted this for ages. Bet there are none locally!

tried doing this at bristol pc world they would not allow sale at 1p, said it was for promotion only, there were quite a few with the pc games section, great sim thou, the f1 mod for this is unbeleivable.

Rang Chesterfield up, but apparently they never reduce stock that low.

went down and they never heard of the game lol

wsnt on the shelves or in the clearance section

This isn't for sale - "free" items have a price of £0.01 as it's as low as the tills go, and these are only meant to be given away with PC's over £500 (or occasionally used as "deal sweetners").

Cold, on that basis.

(rFactor is a well-known racing sim in the sim-racing community, btw).

sorry my internet is timing out Mod please remove teh other 3 thanks

I got an xbox game for 1p from pc world (area 51) not a bad game especially for 1p so they do from time to time have stuff at a penny

Stock shouldn't be 1p ever - 1p is simply the lowest amount something can be priced at.

This game is a special give-away with PC's / Laptop's over £500 (although not usually used). 1p is taken from the laptop / PC to make it free. Same with most 1p stuff.

(i.e. a "free laptop" is usually either 1p or 10p - today at work I screwed up and had to charge the 10p to someones credit card :x)

EDIT - My store has stacks. But theres no way you'll get one without knicking one from a box or off the table next to the SFM (don't ask) point - which is a little cheeky.

Looks like different rules at different stores.

Hopefully some people found this deal at their store.

Like I said, Farnborough had loads at the checkout on Friday for 1p. And just to be cear, it was not linked to any other purchases I made at the time, which BTW was another bargin:
hotukdeals.com/ite…h-r

Can someone please nab me a copy to send to my G/fs UK Address i would myself but i dont live in the UK anymore I'll pay of course the P+P

im sure if anyone got these for 1p they would just sale for £15 on ebay

Got one in staples corner retail park yesterday.
Had stacks by the tills and the SA said nothing just put through at 1p!

The game itself isn't much. Its the thousands of custom tracks, cars, and modifications available for it. If you want to race mini coopers round the Top gear test track then you can.

95% of the custom content can be found and downloaded at central - rfactorcentral.com/

If you miss a recent F1 game on the pc download CTDP2005 for this game. Coupled with some fantastic tracks (CTDP Bahrain, SLN Nurburg etc) it makes a fantastic game.

Personally I am waiting for a newer CTDP season as i have played 2005 way too much lol.

rFactor is as good as it gets, Liveforspeed has better FFB, however crash physics is **** in LFS. you can hit your car in the wall and still drive it pretty good. How is that real ?. Both these games (rFactor and LFS) are pretty much development versions and change frequently with changes to physics (more frequent in LFS).


As for the my view on game, it is awesome, because it is so modable, there are so many tracks and cars available out there for free. By the way guys, if you just want to try it then you can download the 30 day trial version from rfactor's website which is not restricted or stripped down version. Same goes for LiveForSpeed.

Yeah, crash physics are deflinately one of the big areas needing work in LFS. I play both games. rfactor is great because of the mods. I often have a quick go of rfactor to go for a drive around the Nurburgring, or to do a few laps at the current F1 circuit.

For league racing I prefer LFS though, partly because I've got more experience in it, but mainly because I think the LFS physics are better, and the online experience is slicker.

But they're both excellent, and it's worth getting both (and iracing) if you're into race sims becasue they all offer somethign a bit different.

Just sent a friend alomg to Farnborough PC world..... none on display but when asked one appeared from under the checkout..... and YES 1p

:thumbsup:

There was a big stack of these by the tills at the Ruislip branch of PC world with a sign saying free, take one. So I did!

Well I just got this for £4.70 off ebay a few days ago. Still a great game and as mentioned stock content is not that good, you really need to get stuck into all those mods.

Anyone fancy grabbing me one for free or 1p?

If anybody fancies grabbing me one I will ofc pay for postage etc, I would be eternally grateful as I don't live near a PC World!

W...T...F...

Checked with the manager today - The promotion has ended, the branch are meant to keep hold of them but NOT to sell them on their own.

If only I could be bothered to drive to the other branch and buy up £1's worth - make a killing on eBay...
