I wish i'd have seen this earlier! (been spending way too much time with Fallout 3, Again!) as Steam currently have it priced at £17.99 :( which is still a good price, so i shouldn't complain. The PC version also has a few exclusive characters from Football Manager, Total War: Shogun and Team Fortress 2( just in case you needed another reason to holdout for the PC version :)).

Amazon have it priced at £23.06 though i'm pretty sure they had it at £19.99 a couple of weeks ago. It's also listed as a DVD release which is odd as i thought it was only being released digitally on PC?

Yep, I pre-purchased the PC version at that price since having posted the above. What swung the deal was the confirmation it will feature online multiplayer (unlike its predecessor on PC). I'm not fussed about the three new characters being included and if the OutRun track from the Limited Edition console version doesn't feature then I hope it'll be available as DLC as I've heard great things about it. The price you paid is still a good price, as you rightly said. Less than a week to go now... :D

Yeah, it's still puzzles me why they decided to cut the online multiplayer from the PC version. I'm also not too fussed about the extra characters...well maybe the Team fortress chars (x3 if irc) mainly to checkout their vehicle designs :)

Here's the video trailer showing the aforementioned three characters racing in their respective vehicles albeit that the TF2 character is only shown racing a hovercraft -

What ever the release game is with Japanese Playstation 4. Because, and f**k-it, I'm going nuclear with the PS4 pre-release excitement. Might even fly to Tokyo, to stand in the rain, in Akhibara, to pick one up.

You appear to be mistaking me for a Sega fanboy. A most amateurish attempt at trolling me, sir. :mrgreen:

I was merely alluding to a fact. A fact that has been true since the Playstation 2 crushed the Dreamcast out of production. That fact, is a fact. And facts are in escapable. just the facts.
