    "Next" DiRT game wishlist!

    Just finished a run through of Colin McRae 3 and discovered a few things that would be cool in the next game. 1. I like that once you finish the stage you only see the time's of the people ahead of you in the road order. 2. The weather effects are cool, the thunder and lighting in Japan especially are awesome. 3. The different stage surfaces and the tyre's you pick can make a huge difference. 4. Rally Japan! Bring it back, it's awesome. Off to play through 2005 now, see if I find anything else.

    @GentleNameMVB would be a good choice, very active on the DiRT side, I think most Codies staff who check the boards will know him. Always polite and professional with a level head and mad motorsports fan.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    So I've been hanging round these forums for around a year, don't post much as I would only be reiterating the post's of others and I'm lazy :)  but seeing as you would like our opinion on early access (or payed beta?)  I'll drop my 2 cents worth in. First off would it be a free early access with a random selection/first come or would it be payed access? Assuming it would be payed how much would it be?  Personally I have always joined in the early access and mostly had to pay (or pre order) to get in, I could list all the games and how much it cost for each but that would take far to long, on average it's been around £40-£50 to get my hands on the game and I'm happy to pay that for a sneak peek and help mold the game with constructive feed back. So I'll list some pros and cons for early access as I see it. Pros. 1. You get a cash boost in sales. 2. Media attention, gets people taking about your game 3. We break your game faster and in ways you would never think off allowing you to fix it before full release. 4. More feed back from the people who want your game, This could also be in the cons list as some people are... let's say not "nice" :) (I remember the Grid forums once autosport was released) Cons. 1. Less cash later, If we already have your game we don't need to purchase it a second time (although if it's good I will get it for another platform = more people for me to destroy online :) ) 2. Console gamers will cry. My argument to them, Forsa, Granturismo, Destiny...I could go on. 3. People are stupid. Their will always be the people who buy into early access and complain about a buggy, broken, feature light and lack of content game without realising they are not buying a complete game to begin with. You just can't plan for stupid. 4. Point 3 might also lead to a bad first impression of your game by a small minority. So that's 4 for and 4 against, I think I have tried to be objective and personally if you did early access I would buy into it and be very happy. That said... I would also be a little deflated at the full release as I would know a lot of the surprises already, but I'm sure (like accetto corsa) you could hold some things back to surprise us with or add more content later as DLC? but that's a whole other can of worms...

    Would love to come, can't justify to the wife the cost of a flight...but can look at local B&B, travel lodge. Think it would be a 10 hour round trip in the car.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    Cool, was panicking thinking I had missed an important announcement. My personal view (and to some degree I hope I'm wrong) is that the next dirt will at best be cross-generation title for although ps4 may have sold 10 mill and probably around the same figure for the xbox one their are still around the same amount, if not more ps3's and xbox 360's around that they would be silly to miss out on sales. I think the new dirt will be for ps3 and xbox 360 with the next title being next gen.  The other thing I'm unsure of is just how much more powerful the next gen consoles are over the current crop? I would say the next gen consoles are still 3-4 years behind a medium to high spec PC and giving the new dirt content "wish list" I doubt even the next gen consoles could cope with it. Sure the graphics for the next gen look better but is the memory and cpu power up to task for copping with a living deforming rally stage, dynamic weather or even a stage longer than 5 mins ? I'm not so sure.

    Did I miss something? when was dirt4 confirmed for next gen? @GentleNameMVB

    Colin McRae Rally on Steam

    Think it's quite good for giggles with a 360 pad considering it's a phone port. Sure, CM 2.0 with HD graphics and all the original content would be cool but I don't think this port is all that bad more just a little light on content.

    DiRTy Gossip about DIRT Rally Games

    As much as I enjoy reading your guys wild theories I can't help but feel like I should chip in on this one and maybe explain it a little. That tweet is a good thing, the presentation was one an outside company came in and did just made me think differently about everything I'd been working on for the last month or so (probably longer) and the things I was thinking of doing in the future. Just made me question if they were fun and interesting enough and also a little about how I kind of manage my time/whats important at work. So don't worry was nothing bad, just my own little epiphany. I may be an usual customer as it's likely as I'd follow any release format and buy most of DLC. A subscription format with new stages/locations/cars/modes/challenges/extensions would very much appeal to me and in case of off-road is there anything decent out there doing it that way? +1 for this

    Hell yes. Anything with a turbo the size of Texas needs to be in the next game.
