Edit: Most sources seem to indicate that the content has only been 'announced' today and no date for release has been set. *sigh*

 

Hi folks,

 

just read that Paris and 8 cars are finally supposed to be released today! Anyone already downloaded it yet? Won't have a chance to try it for another few hours. Doh!

 

For an PGR 'addict' like me, any possible fee would be ok. 5-10 bugs would be fine, if the city has the same quality as the original ones. More than that, i would pay, but with discontent.

 

I hope non of the new cars are faster than the TVR, since that would pretty much stop my steady effort to unlock All-Platin (still have only half of the Platins, am only playing about an hour or 2 per week max).

 

Lets hear everyones impressions!

 

All the best

Found this, which is probably the announcement.

 

About the TVR, meh! Thats exactly what i feared. This kinda takes the wind out of my All-Platin sails. sniff :(

 

Fee seems to be 4.99USD. Fair in my book.

 

 

__________________

"TVR Cerbera Speed 12 (DLC Verison) - Exactly the same as the retail version, only thing is you won't need all Platinums to get it. However, this model only comes in racing green so we can still tell who's beaten the game and who's downloaded their way to TVR heaven.

 

Ferrari 288 GTO - A fast, fast *fast* Ferrari. Absolute classic and still outperforms most sports cars these days.

 

BMW 645Ci - BMW's latest 6 series offering. It's big, but it's quick and has a very distinctive design.

 

Ferrari 365 GTS4 (Daytona) - Miami Vice. A 70's classic Ferrari. A definate for anyone who claims to know their Ferrari's.

 

Porsche 356A Carrera Speedster - The humble beginnings of the Boxster way back in the 50's.

 

Ferrari 250TR - Classic front engine Ferrari racer for the road. Another 50's offering, and amazingly quick considering it's age.

 

Chevrolet Corvette C6 - Brand new, straight from Chevrolet factories. Only announced 2 months ago, now available for you to drive, even before your car dealer gets to see one

 

BMW M3 CSL -The light-weight, lightning quick special M3. A track beast with a sensational engine and impeccable dynamics. This is one fun car.

 

New City

 

Yup, you guessed it. Paris .

 

From the Eiffel tower, to the Arc de Triomphe, you can now race through the streets of one of Europes oldest and incredibly beautiful cities. It's fast, it's pretty, but more importantly it's yours to hit with the fastest cars ever to hit the streets.

 

Release date is coming soon, this is what is holding this whole thing up. Microsoft and ourselves are working on getting a solid date today . We'll let you know ASAP. There is definately more to come, this is the first drop in the ocean of this announcement as it were."

Sounds fantastic; an entirely new city of tracks to race on is pretty amazing if you ask me. Some other stuff from Bizarre Creations' message boards:

Just to let you all know, the cost issue is under final discussion, I'll let you know when it is decided.

 

Oh, and yes we've done something about the GT names above people's heads.

We also have hopefully fixed the radio glitch for all those who had it

And the reason the Paris Radio stations are on the DVD is it would have been far to big to realistically download (it's over 100MB). These are the only files on the DVD that relate to the city, everything else you will have to download.

Have fun

 

Since they haven't even decided on a release date or pricing yet, I'm sure it's not going to be available immediately.

As are the LA radio tracks... Both of which indicate which cities were planned for DLC long before the game's release, which kind of annoys me... I'll probably still pay for it though. Grrr...

Dan,

Hm, odd. The german press release appears to mention that the content will be available for download as of today. Hope this isn't just a misunderstanding...

Considering the complete depth of content available in the full game they could have gone with releasing no content whatsoever and still had one of the best racers on the market. Its five bucks. Don't like it, don't pay. Real simple equation.

Nobody is saying that $5 is too much. The issue is the timing, first dlc is premium and at least a portion of the work was done prior to release date and put on the game disc. Not too smooth.
