I preordered my copy of f1 2010 today and the man in the shop said that this is a small game and they have to order it in for me.

Is it me or does is it seem strange it is a "small game" yet it is a massive sport?

let me know what you think.

will.

What shop was that?

I believe it will be fairly big, theres a huge amount of racing game fans out there and a f1 game hasn't been released for 5 years, even if people aren't that interested in f1 it's still a brand new racing game that gamers will want to check out

i agree that loads of people will want to play this. the only thing that will put people off is no demo to try it out.

I see what you are saying and I would love a demo aswell but it is either:

1. They are adding the finishing touches instead of a demo.

or

2. The game is bad and they do not want to give peoploe a chance to play it until they have already brought it.

I personally think the first one.

how about you guys?

Lol. Have you seen the people who work in gamestation?? I would not take any advise from them.

Have to say i dont think it will be huge in the USA as its not that known over there, after all the americans are only use to seeing cars go round & round in circules. But this will be a huge game in europe.

indy cars is almost as good as F1. the only thing that puts me off is that i dont really know what is going on (only started watching it this year) as far as the drivers, teams and that go, and they go to the oval circuits which make me fall asleep. but on normal circuits indy car is awesome.

It's a tiny game in comparision to what else is being released at this time.

Halo Reach and FIFA just before and after do not help things.

F1 games are seen as simulations, and it tends to me more the arcade style games (dirt) which sell well.

NASCAR is featured in Gran Turismo 5 this year. There contract with EA Games ended due budget cuts and as you have alluded to, slumping sales.

I love NASCAR but even I'll admit that the EA games were not all that great in the end. NASCAR 08 was just terrible.

Personally I can't wait for F1 to come out.
