    How about allowing a Grid 2 trade in?

    Yep, there is no way in a million years that I would pay £45 for this. Not without a demo anyway. I only got my original PS3 Grid 2 because I got it for £27 on release day with a voucher I had. I sold it 2 weeks later for the same price I paid for it. £45 is a joke. Make it £35 for everyone and £20 for people trading in grid 2. That seems about right to me.

    The two years was just pre-production. The actual production was at least another year. So that is 3 years. Also, the developers described the process as "long". They talked about how they were able to take their time. In one interview they say it actually started after grid 1 was released but they had to wait for the technology to catch up. You are being just as disingenuous as you were on the old forum, Loore. When someone has to start arguing about the definition of "several" then you know they are in trouble.

    In this interview on gamestm: http://www.gamestm.co.uk/features/grid_2_interview/ The interviewer asks the developer: "games™: You’ve discussed previously that the long development time has enabled the studio to better realise its vision for the sequel. What advancements have you made that wouldn’t be possible a few years ago" So Clive Moody, at some point, has said that the development time of Grid 2 was long. So was it long Loore? Or is Clive Moody wrong? My point remains. This autosport game is rushed compared to Grid 2. I would be interested to know how you have managed to produce a superior game in less time.

    That isn't what the developers said in interviews before the release of grid 2. In fact, they told us that they were able to take their time with grid 2 and we were also told that it was codemasters most expensive project ever. You see, this is where you lose trust because you aren't being honest. Rather like your massaging of the sales figures. Here is what your own website says about grid 2: http://www.officialplaystationmagazine.co.uk/2012/09/07/grid-2-preview-players-are-going-to-feel-as-immersed-as-a-real-driver/ "In pre-production for two years, GRID 2 is now in full development on the latest evolution of the award-winning EGO Game Technology Platform. Following the success of GRID, which set new standards for damage, AI, visuals and introduced the Flashback time rewind feature - now adopted by many racing games – GRID 2 will again raise the gameplay and technological bar for motorsport gaming and remain true to the series’ core value – it’s all about the race." So there was 2 years of pre-production before the actual production started. I would think that is classed as several years in development. It has certainly had more development than grid autosport.

    How about allowing a Grid 2 trade in?

    That is fair enough. A much better answer than I was expecting. I can only speak for myself, but if you allow me to get a reasonable amount back for the trade in of grid 2 on steam then I will happily buy grid autosport. I know I seem to be pretty harsh about codemasters but if you play fair by me then I will play fair by you. At the end of the day we all just want a decent grid game to play. Think I will finish single player on grid 2 between now and June and then hopefully, you will allow a trade in.

    What is going on with the online positions?

    I thought it might be something like that. But I noticed I am in the wrong position very early on in the first lap. To be honest, I never really pay attention to the type of race it is. I just turn my PC on, load up the game, pick a lobby, then pick a car lol

    Will the PS3 version of this have 1080p?

    At this time, there is no demo. You have no confidence in your own game. It is the only conclusion that can be drawn. There is no way I will be scammed again. I am going to make sure I play this before buying it. If that means I have to download it from a torrent then so be it.

    The development time here concerns me. Grid 2 was apparently in development for several years and, as we all know, it was utter rubbish. How can such a vastly superior game be released just a year after codemasters saw what a spectacular sales failure Grid 2 was? Do codemasters understand why we don't trust them any more?  What happened to their 5% claim?  They said they left cockpit view out of grid 2 because only 5% of people use it. Now they are making a big fanfare about bringing it back. Why would you bring back something that only 5% of people used?

    Reading back through the thread... I see that no demo is planned. I can only conclude that you do not have confidence in your game. If your game is a great game then a number one priority would be to get as many people playing a demo as possible. Nobody who got stung with grid 2 is going to buy grid autosport without trying it first.

    Thanks MiatakiasGR. According to the stats, only 5% of you missed me. But I was brought back anyway. ;)

    Well, well, well.. I didn't realise the forum was back. And I only found out about Grid Autosport today. I bet you have all missed me haven't you. :)) Especially you, Loore.
