Race07 Suprises..

Discussion in 'RACE 07 - Official WTCC Game' started by Sol Leung, Apr 21, 2008.

  1. So i just login to an online server with the track istanbul and i noticed that something is not right on the track, as u saw alots of real life sponser ads like car and movie ads on the track. So i thought maybe it's just on that track..
    but...... to my suprise i went offline and went into macau, then valencia.. it's on them as well. The sponser ads was everywhere?? so we're now forced to see ads in the game?? :mad:
    I'm pretty shocked as it added into the game without any notice? i wonder if it just slipped into my steam version Race07 as a steam update? :confused:

    ps. those white banner with the size next to it i think those are for hire. :rolleyes:

    To be honest, I don't really have a problem with 'in game advertising.' I hardly notice anyway as I'm too busy keeping my eyes on the track:bike: However, I do see a lot of 'Lizard' boards around on various circuits. Does this mean an imminent update for Race 07 via Steam?? I do hope so.:jumping:
    I've been going to Brands, Mallory and Silverstone for the past 10 years and every year their advertising changes, I see what happens in Race 07 as added realism, or immersion.
     
  3. m... i found some more info, i didn't know that till now... sigh.. :o
    i know it happed in cs a long time ago, but i just couldn't believe it'll happen in Race07. To be honest, i'm disappointed. :(

  4. Well IGA is the future... The developers get better of it, so they self earn some money also... Making it possible to lower the prices of games.

    Personally it doesn't disturb me, as long as they don't overdo things. Also, it makes the experience a bit more realistic :)
