They no longer associate it with NFS, They just call it Shift 2: Unleashed

Anyway, release date is:

Europe on March 24 & 25 and North America on March 29

Nice but GT5 has taken away a lot of anticipation towards Shift 2 for me. Plus I really want Dirt 3 more so.

it does support pc and for that price, it had damn well better use a load cell.

IF they'll support it on PC.
But does it even have a load cell brake pedal?

I saw a review at insidesimracing. It has no load cell just some adjustable spring adapter you place under the brake pedal. For that price it doesn't even come with a shifter. Terrible.

I'll only get Shift 2 if the physics are better than GT5.

the most realistic racer ever... hmm...

we'll see about that.

I wonder if these reviewers like IGN who are claiming "feels like the experience of racing" have ACTUALLY raced in these types of events and cars?

All of the various racing sims have slowly allowed you to bang up the expensive, licensed cars you take out on the race track, but developer Slighly Mad Studios is taking that even further with Shift 2. "Last year we had visual damage and performance damage, but we had kid gloves on," says Abney. "This year we have full, race-ending-state damage engine. You can bounce tires, rip off axles -- really destroy your car and end your race day.

I'm very interested in better damage. I also like the idea of a helmet view. All they have to do is get the handling right when you turn off all the aids and it's a winner.

+1 .... I quite enjoyed the first one though TBH.

Just watched the latest trailer on the physics of cars in the game, was quite awesome and the attention to detail is second to none. Some of the ingame visuals blew me away also and it does look as it could be the benchmark other racing games should be aiming at.

GT5 and Forza 3 look out...

Here's the trailer since talking about an awesome trailer without posting a link would be mean.

EA have gone back to their roots of shipping the same crap every year now. It will be another 10 years before PC gamers get a new engine with modern graphics. :p

the crash physics are so bad they're funny. the damage modeling and car destruction though looks awesome.

But really it looks like once contact is made with another car, the laws of physics just go nuts.
