Message added by PJTierney,

Did you know that the long-time members of this thread have had a DiRTy Gossip Discord server for a while?

You do now 😉

I’ve got a bit of a problem, I downloaded DiRT 3 because my brother wanted to play split screen and now I can’t stop totally uploading clips to YouTube :(

In other news, I’m excited to see what video(s) we are going to get this coming week!
Duuuuude, I can't totally wait for next week either! Hopefully we'll see at least some new cars and info regarding stage lengths etc.

Hopefully it's tomorrow and not next Sunday at 23:59:599 as I'm seriously getting withdrawals. I've watched all of the streams over again and I've been making my way through wrc season reviews on YouTube from 2000 to present day. I'm on 2007 now. Send help.
Haha I've been watching old WRC on YT as well, but I'm watching the half hour daily highlights they've put out. Started at 1997 and I'm also on the 2007 season as of know! Good times  B)

Heh, I went all out a few years ago and tried to find season reviews from every year from 1973 onward. Unfortunately way too much was missing.

yeah, that's my tool!!!

If the game can read extracted and unencrypted (plain) camera.xml files in their respective folders, it will be compatible with DR2.0.
I understood from KickUp's twitter post regarding Dirt4 that once the files are extracted/unpacked and decrypted, you could leave the files there and the game would read them (no need to encrypt/pack them again back into the .nefs files).

 Thanks @zi@zissakos1 I really hope this proves to be the case as that would be a great relief to easily be able to mod any camera in the new game. Thanks for creating this excellent tool!

Looking at the pics of sound recording at the Sainteloc Citroen test, I'm glad they're capturing the new R5 sound too; it has a really unique sounding antilag system.

I just hope the antilag sounds will be more present then in DR2.0.
I found them a bit lacking in DR & D4, especially the group A cars with their really agressive ALS

So it’s finally up for pre order on the Xbox store. £75 for the digital deluxe edition seems quite steep? £15 extra than the physical version from GAME. I never understand why digital versions on the Xbox store cost more than physical
Probably because the stores have to compete with the online store, so they cut the price to get people to come to them instead of just downloading it

That makes no sense. Stores tend to charge more because they have overheads to cover. 

Online costs more because people are inherently lazy and will pay more for the convenience of getting a game (or anything else) without the wait for the post/trip to the shops.

The strange thing here in the Netherlands (and probably everywhere) is that physical games were €60 in the stores long before the digital market existed, those prices never changed in the last 15 years. So it's not the physical market that dropped in price but rather the digital market that started out €10-€15 more expensive right from the get go. I would actually expect the digital market to be cheaper as all they need to cover is hosting costs, whereas the physical market needs more expensive physical storage and shipping.

Same £75 price on the Playstation store.

Heck, it's £65 on Codemasters' own store for PC (same as on Steam) - does make me think they're valuing the DLCs around £15 each (seeing as they're £20 more for both if bought in advance).

And despite asking for this price (which is fair enough IMO if the game is as good as DR1), we still can't get answers on basic things like how many stages there are in game or whether certain retailers' "exclusive DLC" is access to a car or an unlock of it. Let's wait and see what 'hints' this week brings though...

Apparently I can’t maths as it is £69.99 at GAME, so it’s only £5 more expensive digitally. But it’s the same for most games, red dead was £10 more for digital than it was in store, I don’t understand as there’s no manufacturing/shipping costs.
I’ll probably save myself £5 and just get the physical release, looks like you can still get the four days early access from GAME, I guess they will ship it earlier than the standard editions

Good spot - the £60 one from Game is for the PC, which is also £5 cheaper than Steam/Codemasters and comes with the mysterious Opel Kadett DLC - is it a car, is it an unlock - who knows?
