Codemasters Releases Colin McRae: DIRT Xbox 360/PC Demo

Codemasters released today the Colin McRae: DIRT playable demos for the Xbox 360 video game and the PC, and confirmed a U.S. release date of June 19, 2007. The DIRT demos take gamers on three mud-splattered race events. The Xbox 360 demo events include Crossover, Hill Climb and C.O.R.R. (Championship Off-Road Racing). The PC demo swaps mountains for multiplayer and enables up to 100 players to go head-to-head in a race for the best time over a point-to-point rally stage. Both demos are available for download now - The Xbox 360 version from Xbox LIVE Marketplace, and the PC version of the demo, complete with a multiplayer event, available from codemasters.com/dirt.

Looks like a very interesting game. I personally like Need for Speed and Need for Speed Underground alot more.

Recommended Requirements
Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.66Ghz or Athlon X2 3800+
1GB RAM
GeForce 7800 or Radeon X1800 or better
Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Sound Card

Mmm, sound like I get to heat some thermal paste on my rig. Seems kinda weird thou that X2 3800+ is enough, but you'd need E6700 from Intel. While stock E4300 kicks X2 4200+ ass in some games. Will see in 15min.

Hmm yh it can be slideshow like on high settings, i have to run mind on medium at a res of 1680x1050, with filtering off, nice game tho, and very much like the addition of the baja buggies which are fun to race.

May have to get the wheel and pedals from the loft again.

Torrent or File Hosting Service?

I don't trust torrents unless they're private trackers, cos they usually mess up.

It was propably something like 15fps, but high also puts 4xAA. ATT fps indicator or screeshot capture doesn't work with this game, so can't tell for sure. It was still playable, but I like it smooth.

Here some screenshot for you that can't run it:

and a nice movie:

Well wow.. that movie looks pretty cool, even though I don't think they can smash into a wall that fast and carry on driving :confused:

Also... I <3 the cockpit view. Used to have WRC 2003 on XBOX and I loved it. This looks 10X better !! :D

Hmm, well if you got it from 2 seperate sources then it must be a PC problem...

Try Codemasters support. I won't bother downloading this because it looks too high end for me to play it nicely. (Plus now I have that f*£^$"ing Virgin Media "Traffic Shaping".)
