Ahh unlucky Barky! Where did you get yours from out of curiosity?

I was thinking the same but I'll see how the controller manages first

why all the fuss about this game?

Most racing games seem to nose dive in price after a few weeks, will this be the same?

I dunno - but if the last one is anything to go by, it wont get a chance to nose dive as I'm sure it was sold out in lots of places for ages!

I've read there's a masive bug in the game, where when you pit, your pit crew won't release you until everyone else in the pits has passed you - I'm not looking forward to it so much now, at least until there's a patch for it.

most games take a bit of a nose dive, this probably will go down to a silly price b4 crimbo but I cant wait for it.

This game is made by codemasters who have done Dirt and Grid so hopefully the game should actually be pretty good. Even though some F1 games have been shoddy I love them, just cos I love the sport and also the tracks, you only get a handful of F1 tracks on other racing games i.e forza

last ps3 f1 game (f1 championship edition) was still £25 preowned in game the other day
now down to £20 because of the new game game link
but considering it came out in march 2007 i would say its held it value brilliantly

Gave it a quick 10 minutes just now. Looks quite run of the mill, decent enough graphics/sound but nothing special.

I'm only buying it to have up-to-date drivers/teams/points system etc.

Anyone get their shopto orders today? I'm sooo hoping mine has arrived can't wait to give it a whirl. Might even crack out the logitech wheel if I'm feeling adventurous

So each race takes hours like the real thing? That has to be tedious.

no, 10% to 100% race lengths, 15 minutes online quali is awsome thou.

Got mine yesterday; fairly pleased with it. Definately looking like a good game

I am going to get this but can anyone please help me answer a) do you use a wheel and if so which one b) which wheel which is compatible is the best taking cost performance into consideration and its chances of being compatible with past and future Xbox 360 racing titles?

If you want compatibility and performance then it has to be the Official 360 wheel and pedals.
