    Wow! What a game! Im a big fan of the 'street racing' NFS titles (ie Underground, Most Wanted, Undercover etc) and I hated ProStreet, but this one is awesome :rockout: The cars and tracks look superb and after a while your flying around the tracks like The Stig :D

    This is the first time I have ever pre-ordered a game...The pedigree of Slightly mad studios and all the stuff I've seen and read make this a must get game for me, one of the games I forked out for a G25 wheel for too. We in the UK have to wait till Friday though unfortunately.....

    If wheel support ends up sucking. I recommend Live for speed. You can buy it on their website. Its a pretty damn good racing sim. And its priced in UK pounds. So :D for you

    Aye, I've had an S1 licence since 2005 and since I got the wheel I started to get back into it. Looking forward to the VW Scirocco and the new tyre physics when they finally get released, I'll upgrade to S2 then most probably.

    But I'm a bit of a graphics whore so Shift is getting me all sweaty, LOL. And I reckon the G25 will be well supported, from the interviews I've read the pro setting is aimed at FFB wheels. Still, not long to wait till we find out for sure!

    I saw a commercial for it a few hours ago and does it look sweet! Graphics look kick arse and
    so do the effects!
    Too bad I don't have a 360 :(

    Yes i remember reading that the highest settings of difficulty require a wheel. i hope they stuck to that.
