F1 2011 Summary
While Microsoft's Games for Windows Live client is in its death rows there are many futures left uncertain, like all those GFWL infested games still out there. What becomes of them once the beast is slain?
A list has been compiled by Joystiq on what's happening with various titles by publishers and studios. The future is bright for some, not so blinding for others.
Codemasters has announced that a major F1 2011 patch will be going live today which will fix a host of issues, including tweakers to the AI, better online connectivity, and other technical issues. The developer is also warning that a fix for a set-up bug means that the online leaderboards will be reset for both the time trial and time attack modes. The wipe is currently scheduled for some time next week.
Bethesda and id Software's apoco-shooter Rage has been kept away from the UK all format chart crown by EA Sports' FIFA 12, which stays numero uno.
Meanwhile last week's other new entries, Dark Souls and NBA 2K12, came 3rd and 12th respectively. Gears of War 3 came 4th, and racer F1 2011 5th.
Epic Games' trilogy instalment Gears of War 3 entered the UK all format chart in 1st place last week, with driving sim F1 2011 debuting just behind in 2nd place.
Techland's Dead Island is still going strong in 3rd, and Eidos Montreal's Deus Ex: Human Revolution holds on 5th for another week. Resistance 3 sinks 8th.
This week on the New World's PlayStation Store update are demos for NBA 2K12 and Criterion's Burnout Crash!, which also releases as a digital title.
Resident Evil 4 and Saints Row 2 join the PSN catalogue, and Fallout: New Vegas receives it's Lonesome Road DLC, as does Street Fighter III: Third Strike.
