55w ago - Codemasters Game Designer Simon Berry has posted up a video today showcasing a kart makeover in F1 Race Stars below.
To quote: Codemasters are well known for creating racing games with lots of depth, and in many ways our brief for F1 Race Stars (out on PS3 November 20th today) was no different.
When designing the game's structure we intended to provide ongoing variety as crucially as the instant appeal you'd expect from a "karting" game.
Firstly, along with the typical race event, we have introduced a host of other modes of racing. There are eight in total, each requiring unique skills and strategy – some will feel instantly familiar to gamers, and some will feel entirely fresh and unique.
For example, we've introduced Refuel mode - based on the principles of fuel strategy in F1, where fuel re-stocks are placed around the track, but carrying less fuel means more speed. Or Trophy Chase mode, a smash and grab event where players collect trophies, found both on the track and stolen from other drivers.
Gamers should feel instantly at home with other modes such as Sector Snatch mode, where players can own sectors of each track by setting the fastest split time though it, or racing in a classic Elimination mode.

To quote: Last weekend, we held our first Anniversary Event to celebrate one year since the release of UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves, and I think we'd be understating things to say it was anything but a rousing success!
All of us at Naughty Dog wanted to thank everyone (again) who went online to participate in our Anniversary Event - getting the Anniversary Drake skin, along with mega-cash, in return - and made it such a special day for the Dogs to spend with our fan community.
We pulled a few amazing stats from the Anniversary Event we thought you'd like to know:
• We recorded over 2.5 man years of game time in a period of just 24 hours(1 game that lasts 20 minutes = 20 minutes, regardless of how many players in the game)
• Those 2.5 years came from 1,079,850 player games (10 players in a game = 10 player games)
• We also saw 12,376,755 kills during...
