PS3: Formula One Key Points

If you haven’t seen the Press Conference video yet (sorry guys, it’ll be up soon!), PS3’s F1 title was used specifically to showcase the future of PSP-PS3 interactivity. In the demo, it was shown that the PSP could be used as a rear view mirror while racing. While not particularly useful (imo), what was important about that feature was that the PS3 could seamlessly and constantly send data to the PSP wirelessly. Thus, the PSP could be used to aid PS3 gameplay in various, ingenious ways.

The game features (acc. to the press release):
– Next generation experience: High definition visuals, full surround sound, extensive circuit details and lighting effects, progressive dirt and car damage make for the most realistic racing experience to date.
– True realism: Feel the buzz of the paddock and the excitement of race day with authentic pre-race car preparations.
– Live action racing: Experience the real pressure of a Grand Prix race thanks to unexpected collisions and race incidents.
– Introduction of the safety car: Choose the correct race strategy when the safety car is out: will you make an early pit stop to avoid being stuck in the traffic?
– Interconnectivity with PSP: Widen your playing field with interconnectivity application with PSP.

I’m not big on racing games, but F1 did look quite polished. Not much else is known about the title at this moment, but we’ll relay it to you as it becomes available.
