    Day 1 DLC blah blah what a racket

  • IAg Gai

    Um these DLC packs have been available since the games launch.

  • David Banta

    the 1992 drivers is wrong, David Coulthard did not race for williams in 92, it was ricardo patrese (please forgive my spelling)

    • Realkman666

      Yes, we’re old. I know!

      • IAg Gai

        Just like MS didn’t race for Ferrari in the 80’s

      • Realkman666

        Where do you see that?

      • IAg Gai

        they have MS driving the Ferraris in the 80s same with damon hill etc. They had to due to licencing issues I believe.

      • Realkman666

        O_o

    • ChevyGuy566

      They’re all wrong except the F92A and the FW18.

    What is the purpose of having a historical version if is not correct??

      Make money.

      Sometimes I wonder if users on virtualr ever heard about capitalism. If you want to sell big numbers you don’t do something realistic, you do something most people are happy with, not something a hardcore racing enthusiast minority would be happy with. Most people won’t give a s*it about inaccuracies.

      • Loose

        I understand capitalism fine, making the game accessible and playable for anyone, OK. But putting drivers in cars they did not drive is annoying.

      • StarFoxySxv550

        I think it’s more about having the drivers in the game rather than it being historically correct. Personally I see nothing wrong with it, apart from it could be a slightly better situation.

        I guess I’m the part of the “Most people” group osella talks of.

      Maybe it is a secret invitation from the publisher to modders to hack the game and make it right then distribute it freely to the community? ;p

  • Anonymous

    this is not about making things historically correct, is just a business model that from now on every now and then is gonna expand content or add things to keep sucking money out of buyers, they won’t do what people want, just enough to get you itching and keep buying, they already have said that doing historical seasons and alike are out of the question due to various problems with licenses amongst other things, this is what we can expect as most of the so call simulator market is slowly trying to blurry the line to appeal to more customers.

    • StarFoxySxv550

      What if people want their favourite drivers in the game?

      I think you/some people are taking this “simulator” tag just a little bit far, along with being a bit to hard on developers.

  • Robert Every

    So hang on a minute.
    Are the historic packs included in the console version?
    So on Steam the game sells for 29.99, add in two packs that makes basically 45 quid for a game that is just a F12012 patch.
    Is it any wonder people don’t play sims in the old style when con artists like this, who released perhaps one of the most bug infested games of 2012 are doing things like this?
    Hang your heads in shame Codemasters, you are total con artists in my book.

    • David Wright

      There were two versions of F1 2013 available, on all platforms. The classic version had the extra cars and tracks, the standard version didn’t. The DLC lets you add the extra cars and tracks to the standard version. Amazon have the standard PC game for £17.

      As with all DLC, if you don’t think its good value, no one will force you to buy it.

        Well Said… Bashers who have no sense of understanding!

      • StarFoxySxv550

        Clap. Someone that gets it, without going off on a tangent.

        If a person shops wisely, they have the opportunity to get all the content at a better deal than launch (depending on region).

        Of course they want to make money (from used sales and the like), but it’s nice to have all the content if you decide you want it.

        Thank you. Reading comprehension is lacking here sometimes.
        I am far more upset that they expect us to drive these cars with paddles than I am about anything else. I was really disappointed I couldn’t use my gated shifter at least with the 70’s and 80’s cars. The 90’s cars are OK with paddles. They were introduced in the late 80’s early 90’s. But driving the vintage 70’s car with the paddles is a very disappointing experience.
        I remap the sequential gears to my stick shift but it’s still not the same.

  • Hugo Stiglitz

    DLC already? LOL

    This is why I’m glad I boycotted Codefailers after Grid 2 not having cockpit view. These guys suck. Plus, other than presentation and graphics their games are mediocre at best anyways

    • StarFoxySxv550

      This is all codemasters have ever done (graphics and presentation), since the beginning of time. This is what I enjoyed all those years ago with the Toca games. They never claimed to provide the best in anything other than those areas really. They do provide fun games for those that are interested in they type of games they create. .

      Your boycott is because you didn’t pay attention for all these years? lol

    • Guilherme Cramer

      The DLC was launched as the more expensive Classic Edition.

    • John.D

      As seen in VGChartz data, it looks the more Codemasters sells DLCs, the more they lose their old fans…

      • Realkman666

        They’re all after fresh meat nowadays. ;_;

  • TouringProSeries.com

    Pay attention people.

    It’s DLC for those who didn’t opt for the Classic Edition. If you did, it doesn’t affect you.

    Get a grip.
