That's...a rather strange move.

uhhh why? Nobody really cares about driving in circles here.
Pozzle  +   1594d ago
Uh, obvious reasons? The UK is a fairly big games market so it's strange that it is the only country being excluded from playing it. It's just an odd choice on the publisher's behalf.

We still get European football and rugby games here, even though nobody here really cares about those. Still, why rule it out? Just because you or I don't care for those doesn't mean other people won't. Believe it or not, there's fans of American football in the UK. Should they not get Madden games because you don't like it?

Nascar really isn't too popular here though... seems like their decision makes perfect sense to me.

British people prefer F1 to Nascar, I don't know anyone who likes Nascar (in the UK)

Activision will bring it to UK when its a good game. If it ever becomes a good game. Has to test it and see if it can sell in its most popular region first. I am doubtful Nascar 2011 will be rated very high. As they announced the game and said its gonna be done by Febuary 2011. No user input was taken into the building of this game. I am thinking its gonna flop. Nascar 2012 will be 100 times better.

Worst 'sport' ever. Who wants to watch cars drive in a circle for 5 hours??
Too_many_games  +   1594d ago
i would, rather watch 500 left turns then 5 mins of basketball or hockey
GameOn  +   1594d ago
hmmm... nah...
Focker420  +   1594d ago

I doubt anyone in the UK really cares NASCAR is more of an American thing...everytime my family start talking about how great NASCAR is and how talented the drivers are i just laugh and ask them if theyre so talented why do they crash so much on an oval course with only left turns then i tell them to watch some races on the Nurburgring and see what real talent looks like.
Too_many_games  +   1594d ago
Another ignorant person...i am surprised..N4G is full of really smart and informed people...-_-

@ZombieAssassin - you have no idea how much talent you need to have to keep the car on the road almost at full speed even in turns and the G-force the car makes in turns is almost as big as a formula 1 racing car.

I bet you also think that drag racing is for people without talent.

I don't mean they have no talent but compared to other racing circuits NASCAR is the most boring, I don't know maybe I don't like watching cars go in ovals. By no means am I saying I could go out and do it because I guarantee I couldn't, but until I see some of the NASCAR drivers race something other than a NASCAR built car on something other than a NASCAR track I won't hold them to the same standard as the guys who you know race on something other than an oval.

..oh yea and I LOVE drag racing, done a couple myself back when we had a dragway pretty close and they let you drag others on certain days. Not that i really care to watch it though unless it's some beast ass cars.

I'm sure you guys are NASCAR nuts though, I hate it I grew up around it and always though it was the most boring sh1t

Let me define you the word boring - something you dont like.

Let´s be fair here and not insult what people do for a living.
Skizelli  +   1594d ago
There are Formula 1 drivers that have switched to NASCAR and vice versa. These are professional drivers that are very capable of doing both. They're merely different styles of racing with, each with their own set of rules. Have you even seen a NASCAR race at Infineon Raceway? They definitely know how to drive a road course. People like to dumb down NASCAR by saying they simply go in circles, but it's much more than that: Drafting, track temperature, tire pressure, fuel mileage etc. NASCAR races rely heavily on drafting and car setup, whereas most other circuits rely on out-braking each other.

UK doesnt mean Europe goes all together, right?
