Online play
- The award of race credits are now allocated at a fixed rate regardless of the number of race participants.

- Some online opponents appeared to "blur", this has been amended.

- Country and area information now appears next to the online ID in the ranking boards.

As long as my cash is safe I'm all good. I've got 1,965,000'ish in the bank, if I lost that I'm not sure me and GT would would be getting along to well.

Wait...what? Are we talkin like theoretical internet dollars or what?

Not really something I would divulge. You might have to fight chocolate rain guy for it.

Fishy Fingers3717d ago (Edited 3717d ago )

LOL... No, I've got that in GT5p. Saving up for the F1.

Oh, and South Park FTW. "what what... in the butt!"

Anyways can't wait to download the bastard tomorrow as well as the new warhawk pack:D so i too can get to saving. It still sucks there is no organized structure for friend invites and its really impressive they managed to add a whole lcd screen on the F1 car via update. That means cars could theoretically continue to look better. Polyphony better not be stingy with the updates keep em coming

dat car is unreal! got it a week ago.... to my dissapointment i found out i cudnt use it online :(. but it ai stoppin me from winning ;) lol

thor3717d ago

Is there any way to change the controls for 2p in prologue? This seems to be a very basic feature and yet I couldn't find it anywhere :( My friends all seem to want to use L2/R2 to accelerate/break. But they should seriously have fixed the penalty system :/

Is so smooth to drive, its like using an Arcade racer. I need to stop driving and practice more on the other cars that you can race online.

Fishy Fingers3717d ago

It noticed a few of you saying you cant use it online. A little disappointing. Hopefully once more of us unlock it they might update the online to include an "F1 only" race.

I'm sure if its requested, they will supply. Or they could just say "Go play F1 2007 you pu**y!" but I doubt it :)

j4gs143717d ago

right you are bubbles 4 youu! that would b wicked. mind you how many ppl will b nudging you around on the track? they need to sort those cun7s out.. mind you its kinda funny lol

Meus Renaissance3717d ago

As you know the online races are actually a mirror of the single player events, and there are no events that focus solely on the Ferrari 2007. If Sony enabled the car to be used online, it would basically mean you've won the race from the moment you're on the grid because nothing will get near you. You could go down and make yourself some tea, come back up and still race circles around people. That's how fast it is.

But Polyphony did say they'll add new events and hopefully one of them will be F12007 cars only, allowing only those who have the car to race it online. It's just not enabled yet because its unfair to those who've yet to unlock it

Fishy Fingers3717d ago

Yeah thats understandable. Personally I would only want to race other F1 players. Whats the point if theres no challenge, I like to let me driving do the talking, not just the speed of my car.
