    I hope it will be much like the old F355 Challenge, that physics and sounds are amazing!

    I never understood "Ferrari games" - talk about a niche market.

    If I remember correctly there was a game floating around at the time of the PS2 launch called something similar by a dev team called Brain in a Jar. No idea what happened to it.
    But I wonder if this is the same game resurrected?

    Anyway, re-invents the racing game? That's a bold statement! And just Ferraris. Not too bad I guess. It all depends on what the game's like though. Better than Outrun I'd expect (though this is to be a sim not an arcade racer so it'd be different).

    It's referring to F355 Challenge which easily remains one of the, if not the most realistic console racing simulator to date. It got poor reviews for being just so.
    Different makers, but I'm hoping for the same physics and gameplay of F355 as well.

    Where'd you get that Sony is the publisher?

    But anyway... the game seems decent enough, but GT5P stole my interest.

    My bad kekke, I didn’t see your original thread. By all means, feel free to copy anything you want off this thread. I'm going to lock it so further discussions on this game wont be made here. :tup:

    I was about to be all over this. Then I saw that developer did not include any combination of "AM2" and/or "Sega."

    I think this might be a whole new type of game, not like any other. Since i've never heard about System 3 before.

    "It will be focused on racing dynamics and realism, but the visual part is not left behind."
    Sounds an awful lot like F355 Challenge to me. And I don't think you can shove a whole lot of innovation into a racing simulation that only has 1 car in it.

    But the physics e.t.c. will probably be all new.

    A different physics engine hardly makes it "a whole new type of game, not like any other."
    That just makes it "F355 Challenge. With a different physics engine."

    What i meant was that when driving the Ferrari on the track it will feel like nothing before. Most racing games released is like some other racing game e.t.c.

    But lets not make the thread about this. We all think different. :)

    And putting in a different physics engine would be like giving a basketball player the legs of a baseball player.

    F355's Challenge physics were perfect, imho, and don't need a different engine.

    Well, not the PS2 version. The original was awesome. The PS2 was a let down.

    Anyways, some info with kudos to BADNED.

    Timing and idea of one make realistic racing game is good. PS3 has power to compute realistic physics, G25 can deliver them to our hands and most importantly developer can concentrate on one thing ;to make that prancing horse feel like one.

    Release date: 23rd November 2007
    Formats: PS3, DS, Wii (don't ask :D)

    All details from official press-extranet below. Notice that game will support "Official Ferrari Steering Wheel", whatever that means. I just hope there will be no need to buy ANOTHER wheel for my never-stoppng expanding collection and that some Logitech wheel will be supported.

    Also, sorry for the LR pictures, can't upload them bigger because of server limitations. Notice the damage in the screen with yellow F430. Also notice that pictures 5,6,7 and 8 have been grabbed from the video. I'm still trying to upload it somewhere but it also looks nice.

    Graphicaly, not as near as GT, but satisfiing. If physics even come close to Yu Suzuki's master-piece, this game will be a jewel.

    Notice "official world online championship", PSP connectivity and other nice bits. This could be a very nice game in all of it's total unexpectancy (does this word even exist in English? :)
