Curious, what don't you like about Steam? I find it very convenient to have all 12-13 of my racing games/sims (all but one - GSCE) accessible from one interface, in addition to common access to forums and patches/updates. Works very well.

i wish steam (or anyone in the US) had this available! we've been able to 'pre-order now!' for a few days yet & zero pricing details or even options for PC users. combined with the limited edition 'bonus' announcement, really disappointing unrolling by sms.

I wonder if my 3ghz core duo would be able to run this? looks like just below minimum specs. Really like the look of this game.

Don't expect in game to look as good on your average PC.

How would you define "Average"?

I'd say a top of the range pc now with one graphics card. Many of the shots are taken as stills with low framerates or slow FPS in my opinion. I have a quite powerful gaming PC (built this year) and I don't care what any fan boy investor says, these shots do not represent the normal game play graphics in my personal opinion.
:cool:
(waits for the usual investor insults)

Andy, maybe the reason for the "fan boy investors" "insulting" you is because of your condescending attitude towards them? I mean come on, was that really necessary?

Yeah some of the more res shots are probably from low FPS gameplay, but a lot of them are probably from pretty playable FPS. I think the main thing why gameplay doesn't have the same wow factor as some screenshots simply comes down to the angles of the shots. Almost any game looks considerably better if you know how to take proper pictures, and that's more or less the case here. If I took screenshots of normal gameplay, and then some shots with better angles, I bet I could get a few shots that seem to "not represent normal gameplay" as it were.

Let me clarify: I'm not saying you're wrong, I agree that there are some shots that don't represent normal gameplay because the settings are cranked. But at the same time, anyone who is competent enough is more than capable of getting pictures (or video) that look far better than plain gameplay (and not just in pCARS).

Edit: Woops, in my first paragraph I'm referring to photos whereas I think you meant video clips. If that's the case I do disagree with the low framerates bit simply because the video would be very choppy if the footage did come from low framerate capture. Yes the slo-mo bits too, if you're recording 15fps footage, even if you're playing in slo-mo (in game), it's still going to look like 15fps footage.

Its not that I don't like steam; I have quite a few games from there myself. But all of those games have pretty small footprints. My internet download speed is pathetic :( I'm worried that PCars is going to be huge with all those hi res textures. I'd rather buy it on a disc. If it ends up being 40gig or more, I probably wont even bother. By the time I downloaded that, Pcars 2 would be out...

I may be wrong, but I suspect that you'll still end up with a large download from Steam anyway.

Game is 12 GB big right now, with almost all content included. Soo we can talk about 15GB of space needed. Absolutly not 40.
