    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 www.codemasters.com/dirt.

    its quite good, but it took me an age to get my pad set up, as every game seems to since the 360 pad was released (its a logitech), but since when was colin mcrae american ('lets race baby', and 'I'LL see you in the full game') last i checked, he was a sweaty

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

    the dirt looks to much like it has just been painted over the game. very fake looking.

    but otherwise I love the physics on the new racing game :D

    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.

    Torrent or File Hosting Service?

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

    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".)

    Racing games get boring too quickly for me...
    I mean, how many different ways can you drive over the same piece of track :p
