New computer game deal for F1

Formula One is to have its first official computer game in more than two years next season following the capture of a new official licencing deal with British gaming company Codemasters, autosport.com can reveal.

With Sony having published the most recent official F1 game last summer, based on the 2006 season and available only on PlayStation consoles, Codemasters' deal will see F1 return to a multiformat platform for the first time in many years.

The game is set to be available on all major home consoles, as well as handheld and PC gaming formats.

i currently play F1 using rFactor- definately the best realistic simulator on the planet. and utilises the hardware to full capapbility. codemasters make very nice gaming engines- just hope they dont make it too arcade style- F1 has to be realism-otherwise it will kinda suck.

download the GRID demo from codemasters, that is awesome. it will give a preview of what to expect on F1.

This is great great news

Yay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

I'm sure Codemasters will do a pretty good job with it. I've always liked their balance of arcade/simulation in racing games - enough simulation for it to be feel realistic, but not so much that you need to be an actual racing driver to play it.
