Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, the number of stories is slowing down. Time and developers move on, but I'll always be posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age. Please consider clicking an ad to help my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

F1 2011 to be EU Vita Launch Game

The good news is that Codemasters has confirmed that the Vita version will be mingling on the shelves with the other launch games. The bad news is that, despite the new video, it still looks a bit crappy, even in 720p.



Yes, I can see the "Work in Progress" tag too, but the game doesn't seem to have improved much from the TGS shots (one below) that showed some rather woeful monocoques, low-level shading and blotchy suspension. Perhaps its something you won't notice bombing through Eau Rouge wheel-to-wheel with the glossy AMOLED screen, but it does look like there's lots of work to be done.


Clearly F1 is a high-end game that pushes the Xbox and PS3 pretty hard, and the Vita is all new and shiny, so there will be some trade-off. And, to be fair, Sumo Digital hasn't let us down in the past, and there's time to get things right but this is one of the few Vita games that has a question mark over it
