As much as I loved GPL and F1C in their day and as good as rFactor 2 looks and undoubtedly will be, I’m not going to be getting it. I can’t be bothered with PC sim racing these days. It involves too much faffing about with hardware, mods and compatibility issues for me. I wish they’d have ported it for consoles. I’d be all over an rFactor-esque simulation for PS3.
I never warmed to rFactor, I felt it was too similar to F1C without significant improvements, and with menus I didn’t like, so I used F1C for every season available. rFactor had other series as well, but I couldn’t be bothered about those.
Now rFactor 2 looks brilliant, and if there are multiple seasons and the game is so realistic I might try the evaluation version and see if it’s really good.
@matt88 It’s nowhere near as bad as the wait for LFS S3, trying to get Grand Prix Legends on GOG.com, or a new F-Zero game on Nintendo’s new consoles and handhelds. At least rFactor 2 has playable demo builds.
