Wait, the Dirt branded liveries got removed?  Isn't that linked to one of the achievements?
I believe the 00 cars were for the V.I.P. people

No, i was referring to the Dirt branded stuff, the achievement is some time in the dirt3 impreza or something.

It would be nice if the 00 stuff was cleaned up, but i don't mind so much if others have it too ;)

Yes, the 00 cars were the DiRT branded ones. They are VIP ones. Aka Escort Mk2, Polo RX and 405 Pikes Peak. They finally take away those from us "non-VIP". Shame, cause now the 405 has quite literally no interesting liveries at all. At least Escort got the McRae livery, so there's that.

Not all the dirt branded liveries were the 00's.

But I understand what you mean now, yay for my exclusivity; )

Cool, I now have a Platform dropdown on Racenet!


Whats the League name @RallyDriven ?

It's the inventive name of Michaels League right now. I have no idea how stuff works so its probably not a very good league!
Michaels League got did!  Chose the A110 as had no chance to drive it before.  It's fun!  Rolled on both the 2nd & 3rd stages. Easily beatable!!

The game is absolutely phenomenal. Runs beautifully, looks really nice, sounds are F-ing A and the physics feel great. All the praise are well deserved and it was definitely worth the wait.

I'd also like to congratulate the DiRT dev.team on the launch and wish you guys all the best.

Think I might stay away from the forums for a bit while the console users run riot  :| haven't got the patience to be dealing with some of the ridiculous comments like so of you guys out there.

The same happened with the full release of the PC version, the console release will just bring a larger wave because there are more customers.

Someone needs to amalgamate the many PS4/XB1 ffb threads...  :)

Yesterday, the website encountered a heavy load on it because clearly the consoles release was more like a revolution against the PC users.. I didnt know there were consoles users more than PC ones.. The amount of consoles threads is unbelievable that could result to the site's downfall or something like that :|

Console players are no different from PC players.

DiRT rally play exactly the same way on PC, PS4 & XBOX One.

Maybe you got some bad anectdotal experience being trounced by a 5 years old Chinese prodigy being on top of the leaderboard.

Well they are still there in the game files, so we could easily just move them to another slot :tong<span>:tongue:</span>

But what disturb me is that they DID tell us, early accesser, that every additional content except the VIP one would be accessible to us...and the DiRT legend edition content is not available to us....(at least for the engineers, for the liveries it's the same case as the VIP liveries)

Seriously? I thought that was obvious when every single multi-platform game gets most of the sales from consoles. I think only Witcher 3 so far had more sales than PS4 or Xbone, but not when you combine the two.
PC gaming is on the rise, but console gamers are still the majority. Vast majority.

I acknowledge the majority wouldn't spend a large sum of money to build a high-end computer to play a "videogame", but there are many advantages behind consoles that  primarily involve exclusive titles and pricing reasons. 

PC users still suffer from many disadvantages like bad ports and exclusive titles which tend to be super fun to play.

I don't know if that was an insult but I will be tender with it as a reconsideration for my view towards consoles.

PC suffer mostly from sticker shock, that's the worse of it, although they last longer now and are general purpose while console, while becoming more polyvalent, are still limited compared to PC

Concerning the imaginary prices set for PC and its affliates is the part that users shun for consoles.

I do also acknowledge that we are discussing marketing, but it would be preferable not to irritate our fellow members for going offtopic :D 

I apologise for that!

No prob, and anyway, talking about consoles, the only ones I've seen innovate on that corner are nintendo (they are willing to try new things, while sony and M$ are stuck on "PC Junior")

anyway back on topic : Whose head I have to hit to have forgotten to correct the Stratos Speedometer bug ?

Rally drivers don't need speedometers. They only slow them down by showing how ridiculously fast the car is moving! ;)

Perhaps I've missed the comments (or Codemasters are cleaning them up!) but, thus far, I don't think I've seen a single negative comment on Facebook with regards to the console release. I really hope that the wider console audience like the game as much as the few of us on here do!
