There is one question that I get asked often by my petrol head friends and that is “Why isn’t there a F1 game on the 360?”
Well the reason was that Sony has had the exclusive licence since 2003, however there have been rumblings that Sony are going to lose this licence and we could well expect a F1 game on the 360 in the near future.
Now it looks even more like, EA Sports has recently given Lewis Hamilton (F1 superstar) 5 million pounds to front a game next year. The game has not been announced but I don’t think you need to be a rocket scientist to think know it’s going to be a racing game.
Would EA Sports develop a F1 like racing game if they didn’t have the official licence? I doubt it, not with the litigation circus that follows F1 all over the place..
So I am guessing here that we are going to hear an announcement soon about Sony losing the F1 licence and EA Sports getting it…. bets anyone?
