Default Race Driver: GRID Announced

http://www.codemasters.com/games/?gameid=2457

GRID™ Is all about the race- that period from lights to flag; full of tension, pressure, noise, and action.

GRID will take players to beautifully realised and dramatic race locations over three continents to compete in an unprecedented variety of racing events. Packed with the most powerful race cars – new and classic, circuit and drift – players will compete to conquer the most prestigious official race tracks and championships and then go beyond to compete in challenging city-based competitions, through to road events and urban street races.

In Europe, race gamers will compete on the greatest official tracks in prestige Marques including Aston Martin, Koenigsegg and Pagani. Iconic cities across the U.S. – including San Francisco, Washington DC and Detroit and each with their own atmosphere and events – play hosts to diverse street races. Here, high-performance V8 muscle cars set the pace in aggressive closely fought pack competitions.

In the Far East, Japanese racing culture sets the tone where night races, including Drift racing, take drivers through neon illuminated cities and to outlying mountain roads. There is also the opportunity to compete in races that operate on the fringes of legality in the back streets and industrial areas of Yokohama.

GRID is coming mid 2008 for the Xbox®360, PLAYSTATION®3 system and Games for Windows®.

If they're using the same engine as DiRT I'll actually believe these screenshots.

uhh not sure what filter ur referring to, thats exactly how crappy the game actually looks. u can just add af and higher res on a highend pc. if u have a better shot post it and ill be happy to replace it, but from everything ive seen that shot is representative of dirt.
