Also....seems there are no cops in this game LAWL. Where is the PD when your driving near people on the beach?

Wondering if it copies the roads/freeways from the US as well. That would be great for coast to coast race so players can choose their own route as well.

I did not get my question answered does anybody think you can play the whole story of this game solo because I"m not really a social person?

Always online is doomed, although it seems a trend right now. And this next gen consoles, high end pcs make me laugh, there is no such thing, they say it to sell the new shitty consoles, today we have the best graphics we could see.

I love that this producer is not shying away from naming different games, even those that are his competition and his inspiration.

Big props Julian!

If  I am playing the game solo, why would I need a internet connection to play by myself?????????????????????????  I'll drop this game if it remains the same and spend my money elsewhere.

I love racing games but there is something about this that just doesn't sit well with me.  The driving mechanics seem janky to me.  The handling seems too loose.

I've always wondered about the licensed cars and damage issue.  Do the auto companies really think it would be that damaging to their brands?  Or is there some other weird reason?

Something else, there has been a lot of mention of "high end PC" as a platform this E3.  I wonder if the console makers encouraged people to say it that way.  It implies a few things, like you would need an expensive PC, or only a high end PC can match a console, etc., to make the console more appealing.

I presume ATI Radeon 6700 and AMD X4 3.0 isnt consider high end PC anymore

I do have one comment though. It takes an hour and a half in a lambo to cross the USA? That would take like a week in real life. So it's the USA, but shrunk? LOL

well there is no cockpit view....need to wait and see whole USA idea sounds impressive but like other user noticed you do not really get the whole USA.

Can't wait to play this game! I wonder how many cars are gonna be in the game?

False advertising it is not the whole USA. Rather it is the main parts of the USA shrunk down. This would be like me selling a cookie and saying you will get the whole cookie, but I end up giving you about 1/8th of a cookie broken up into pieces but it still has chocolate chips on it and cookie dough.

It looks like they've taken all the best elements of all my favourite racers, then added their own flavour to it. This game sounds perfect to me.

Day 1 buy for me.  TDU was one the best concept I ever played.

Put a Trans-Am in the game; and a BMW 850 CSi, and i will be really happy.

How are they going to model the whole of the US? I guess their must be some limiting factor. Ah I see it's not to scale. Still impressive. It's like Test Drive Unlimited meets Burnout Paradise.

Obv. Not going to be like Google earth USA racing. But I love they have created this.

Not in terms of racing games. If your road racing one minute, then dirt racing the next in terms of racing games they are two different gameplay styles. Hardly going to turn into a transformer and start flying around...

Wow Fred, we both like TDU.  I love all the Test drives.  I'll take a Lotus Exige.  I like BMW's in Need for Speed.

@CincoToes @GT_APE Billions of different people on earth and you assumed I'm a student? Apparently you didn't pay attention to your teachers much.

Being treated like a piece of shit is the wave of the future.  Not being able to use what you buy is advancement.  PR talk for ignorant masses.

"We don't really see the point of offline. Did you ever play World of Warcraft? So World of Warcraft, you don't play offline." But he then explains "He emphasized that the single-player story can be played all by yourself… as long as you have an internet connection."

Soooo, its basically gonna be Diablo 3 all over again, what a fuckin joke. If u can play solo, then u should be able to play offline, simple as that. What if their servers go down, or your internet drops out. And in years time when they shut down the servers, u wont be able to play anymore. Yet another blatant excuse for this DRM bullshit. FUCK THAT.

@GT_APE I assumed you were a kid because what you said was utterly idiotic. You're right though, grown people can be stupid too.
