    Whilst they could have, and most probably were, just asking a harmless question, I can't help but think that they might take it out if they get enough 8 year olds kids telling them they race in chase cam.

    I most definitely wont buy the 2013 game if they take cockpit cam out.

    No cockpit cam therefore no sale, simples! ........ they are on dodgy ground already with me, this would be the final nail in the coffin

  4. I really doubt they will remove cockpit cam since they have added all the driver animations and such which you can see in T-cam anyway so would be a really bad move on their part.

    If they were to remove a view I opt for the chase view. Never understood that people who love racing games and cars choose that particular view.

    Chase view is really only suited to NFS hot pursuit. Lol

    Mike Partington I was just thinking that. I don't think they will get rid of it, because they've already put so much effort into the bespoke cockpits. Why get rid of something that ain't broke.

  9. NO purchase from me neither if that is removed. Always raced from that view, everything else is a no go. You never see a F1 pilot driving from the top of the car do you ;)

    Im really hoping they bring them back in the 2013 release. They received a huge amount of "unpleasant responses" from fans for taking them out.

    ..... but they told us WE don't use FP1 & 2, so the development of their new 'clairvoyancy engine' (dunno if it replaces the EGO engine), must be coming along just fine ;)

  14. I hope the New engine may have better Aspects than the current one.
    Also if they dare to take Cockpit cam out then i won't buy it.

    Sorry Kartik Sri Harsha you misunderstood my joke. Clairvoyancy is the ability to read people's minds, and perhaps see the future. As CM think they know what drivers want and how they actually play their game ...... they must be clairvoyant, hence my made up joke game engine called the 'clairvoyancy engine' :whistling:

    I think they should link Cockpit view to the highest simulation level of the game ,i mean that you should not be able to use any other view when you play on that level !
     
  18. Cockpit cam all the way.
     
  19. As far as I can remember back, Since the mid 80's I have only ever played any game (that includes driving) from cockpit cam. With one exception - GTA.

    Personally, I think all other cams should be removed - other cams should only be for replays. ALL driving should be done from the cockpit no matter what. End of.

    WHY would you drive in any other view?

    So far nobody voted chase cam. Great, so they can remove this view for F1 2013 then if they are consistent at CM.
