    Have downloaded trailers from here:

    http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?id=4609

    And looks awesome IMO, motorstorm (which I love!) meets rallying with official car models and real world tracks! Obviously the trailers here are FMV and the feature is for the 360 - but I just wondered if anyone had any more info on the game for the PS3?

    GAME have got it as a preorder due for release 22nd June 07 for £39.99 delivered.

    Any ideas if it can be imported earlier or if it looks anywhere near as good in game!?

    Cheers, Jon

    If you order from Game use the discount code SENSE and get £5 knocked off.

    I've already ordered mine, had £2.50 in reward points so it only cost £32.49 :thumbsup:

    (Please don't give me credit for this code its been in the bargain forums for a while now: http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=497339 )

    It terms of what it will look like, you can be pretty confident it will look virtually identical to the 360 version. Although for some reason it's being released a few weeks/months later?

    Here is a quote from the code masters forum admin :

    "I can't really go too far into why the PS3 version is running behind, I'm afraid, but yes the PS3 is a very different beast to code for than the 360. part of that can be dealt with by middle ware (hence Neon), but not all."

    Knowing code masters, I wouldn't say it'll be bad, but with them using middleware to emulate/recode, I would say it appears that it won't be any better than the 360 version at best.

    No it simply means they are not rushing it and are taking their time,so hopefully it should be just as good,maybe better than the 360 version.

    When you're at the 2nd checkout bit (after you've logged in) where it asks for your address details etc, on the right hand side there's an "Offer Code" window, weird place to put it I know, but just type SENSE there and hit ok and it'll add the £5 discount to the total price :smashin:

    I'll have to try again.

    Does anyone know when its out in the US? I'm thinking of ordering the PS3 version and waiting to hear from the US what version is better. Both PS3 versions are out after the X360 so reviewers will no doubt say what ones the best. If the US version is out slightly before the UK and the US say the X360 version is better will it give me enough time to cancel the PS3 version and get the X360 version. But if the PS3 version is better I can just keep my preorder.
