    No FOV slider on console? Wonder why? If anything I'd have thought it more important for console players who are more likely to be using a less than ideal setup. PC players are more likely to have a dedicated monitor they can move to suit them. Except me. I use a TV on the wall that could to with being bigger or closer but the room is used for other things too so must compromise for now and pick my battles.

    Is that digital sales? Seem to be a lot of old titles in there, perhaps these are the top sellers in CEX?

    Ah, perhaps I hadn't noticed because I mostly drive historic!

    Really? I find money very easy to earn in this game and I'm usually about middle on community events. I do like the way damage stays with the cars between online and offline events though - found that out on day 1 when I messed about in shakedown like I used to in DR1!

    @CMMcBabe Thanks for confirming the league thing. That was my main concern. Still don't understand the restriction on displaying names of players on other platforms though. I can see why you're not allowed to pull user details, even usernames from PSN/XBL. Just because someone bought your game doesn't mean they're happy to share their data. Presumably their existing agreement with their console provider allows you to share with other users on that platform. That sounds almost sensible for global leaderboards for the hotlapping fans but what about community events? To compete in these I have to sign up to racenet and I'm pretty sure that on line 3672 of the UA I agreed to share my details with other racenet members. So you may not be allowed to go direct to PSN/XBL/Steam but can get names from your own servers? If that's not allowed, why can I login to dirtgame.com and see results from all platforms there for DR1 and cross platform results for all platforms on dirt4game.com for Dirt 4? Or is it a bit like the WRC cars from Dirt Rally - you got away with it back then but could risk it now? Not my top priority and only concerns me because I switched platform recently but would be nice to have. Would be happy if it just works on the web portal (when we get one?) but not in game.

    Yeah, I was sure we knew that already but can't find it so wondered if I'd just assumed

    Surely that can't be it? The Dirt 4 website allowed cross platform results with names (can't remember if it worked in game as hardly played it) and it was possible to browse the Dirt Rally results by individual platform. In fact, at one point the cross platform results were automatically compiled and uploaded to r/simrally @CMMcBabe Will clubs/leagues be cross platform?

    I'd just be happy to see them. I did like the option on the old website to filter by assists and controller/wheel though. Main concern is that it't fixed ready for leagues/clubs so I can compete in my old leagues.

    On the subject of leaderboards, if I set to cross platform I see a lot of "Dirt Player" entries on the community events. For me this is an issue because I own Dirt Rally on PS4 but Dirt Rally 2.0 on PC. I'd like to be able to compare times with the people I used to play DR1 with. My racenet account is linked to PSN and Steam and the old DR players show up as friends in racenet web page. Not sure if friends filter on Steam works because I don't have any!

    I'm sure it's a given but can anyone confirm if Online/community events and Leagues/Clubs will be cross platform? I was in a few Dirt rally ones on PS4 but will have Dirt Rally 2.0 on PC. Would be nice to be able to compete with the same members.
