EA,UBISOFT,CODEMASTERS getting this license= FAIL.

SlappingOysters3481d ago

Polyphony Digital or the Forza dudes taking it on... we'd only get one game every decade though

Montrealien3481d ago

EA has released great F1 games in the past. I don't understand your reasoning.

Kleptic3481d ago

EA 'used' to create a lot of great games...its within the past few years that they have gone to complete shat...

sonarus3481d ago

Its the management. EA's number 1 priority is to make the most money with the least resources. As long as they have key games like madden, fifa, need for speed and a bunch of others giving them a million a yr that will NEVER change

You guys have clearly not played Boom Blox.

The best thing that could happen to F1 is for a decent company/publisher to get the licence, Sony has done nothing but produce mediocre F1 titles over the years that have not done the sport any justice at all.

Give it to a real dev studio and a real publisher (like Turn 10, Blimey Games or Bizarre Creations) and see what amazing things will be done with F1

Hell, the TOCA team at codies would do a better job than Sony ever could

Polyphony earned rights to all the cars and tracks for GT5 you idiot...thats why Sony is letting it go...GT5 will have it all in there, plus everything else any racing fan could dream of...

and this is old news...its almost confirmed that EA is buying it up...after seeing the awesomeness that was Nascar 08 (not that Nascar does anything but suck anyway...just making a point of how much EA sucks recently too), I am sure they can do a better job than F1 2006...one of the best racing sims to date...

you are way too much of a douche to know anything about F1...don't ever speak of it again...

ruibing3481d ago

I would much prefer SCE Studio Liverpool concentrate on Wipeout instead of F1. GT5 kind of already covers F1 tracks and some of its cars, so there's little point in making another game just for it.

And by Bizarre Creations do you mean the one Activision recently acquired and "announced that PGR4 will be the last game produced for Microsoft"?

I don't really care who picks up the license. I'm a huge F1 fan, so as long as the game turns out great, I'll be happy.

aaron58293481d ago

...the game is faithful to the real sport.. i'm happy.

I'd hate to drift around Sepang/Monaco in an F1 Car. And turn speeds at 300km/h.

Good news for PS3/F1 fans, like you guys seem to be. You owe it to yourselfs to at least rent F1 Champ ED.

Its very sim heavy if you want it to be (it's all adjustable) with a top notch physics system and a fantastic sense of speed with great motion blur effects and lighting.

Also the career mode rocks.

If you wanna. *shrugs*

Kyur4ThePain3481d ago

Yup, I got it, and enjoy it.

Marceles3481d ago

Wasn't that one of the best selling games in EU at one point? I wouldn't drop it just yet if I were Sony...

"The best thing that could happen to F1 is for a decent company/publisher to get the licence, Sony has done nothing but produce mediocre F1 titles over the years that have not done the sport any justice at all."

Yeah, unlike those "indecent" company/publishers. Surely Microsoft must be decent compared to Sony. Oh wait.

"Give it to a real dev studio and a real publisher (like Turn 10, Blimey Games or Bizarre Creations) and see what amazing things will be done with F1"

Yeah, so "real" gamers can play it I assume, right? Ah, the Xbot mind at its worst... I have a better idea: Polyphony Digital. They completely own anything on the realistic car simulation market. At least I'm not making up anything.
