F1 2009 for Wii and PSP

I’m getting excited about the new F1 2009 game coming out for the Wii.

I know, I know, it isn’t a ‘proper’ gaming system and F1 2010 for the PS3 / X-Box will be far better – but I don’t own either of those things and that game isn’t out in two weeks’ time.

This is the first officially-licensed F1 game to launch on a non-Playstation system for years (damn that Sony and their exclusivity deal) and even the last PS game was some 3yrs ago, so you can imagine a lot of us are getting quite excited!

Check out this video which explains how the game will appeal to novices and the experienced alike:

(that’s Anthony Davidson, BAR/Honda/BrawnGP test driver, alongside David Croft of BBC Radio 5 Live, and also quotes from a game developer)

I know, the Wii graphics are not stellar. I.Don’t.Care. I get to play an F1 game online without needing to bother spending hours on car setups, a pricey console or a proper wheel, or in the case of the PC I don’t have to worry about graphics cards and drivers and ‘will it run on my system?’. How cool is that?!

Of course, I almost certainly will spend hours on car setups and if they release a proper wheel I’ll probably get it… but that’s not the point. If I just want to pick up a controller and have a quick race against Button and Hamilton around Interlagos, I can. In 2 weeks time, I will.

Just to say this hasn’t been a paid piece or something done for a PR company, I did this off my own back because I’m genuinely looking forward to it.


One thought on “F1 2009 for Wii and PSP”

  1. Games based on the Formula One racing circuit tend to appeal mainly to hardcore racing fans. If you fall into that category, Codemasters have got you covered with the release of F1 2009 on PSP. Fans around the world will get the chance to take to the virtual grid and emulate their favorite drivers as F1 2009 races into stores across North America today. Europeans have to wait a couple more days before the title arrives in shops. The PSP edition of F1 2009 will also be available.For more in detail you may visit at :http://www.techarena.in/video/23150-f1-2009-psp-gameplay-video.htm
