    That is the worst pro Steam argument I've ever heard.

    actually its a great argument. if wanny and me feel the same about that im sure many others do too. i no longer have a single pirated game and now own over 175 games between steam and retail. many of the game wich i already had pirated ive gotten thru steam now.

    not here though, games on steam are expensive as $hit.. i get a better deal in retail. One really obvious example Cod7 BO 59.99€ in retail 49.99€..

    But yea agree, to each his own.



    on topic

    report to steam support staff, im sure it will be resolved much quicker..

    I kept looking for Shift 2 on Steam to preorder, but I didn't see anything about the game on there until the day it launched, by which time I'd already gotten a retail copy from BB.

    Me too,specially because steam games arent cheap compared to other shops around, and theyre offers arent really that great, price is the same as retail sometimes.
    Honestly what stopped me pirating things is two things:
    - demos
    - cheap keys from known sellers like g2play.net or igx4u.
    To make an example my EAdm crysis 2 LE costed me 29euros, shift 2 just 15, sf4 8 euros, BF2BC 25,CoDBlops 34,99, hawx 2 30.
    All these games were 59,90 over steam.
    Beside that some deals are too great to pass on. I got gta4 Eflc for 12€ last december.
    Other things are nonsense, when dirt 2 came out i got my GFWL retail box at gamestop for 39,90€ while steam version was 49,90 lol.

    Anyone still having issues with LE content? because I DO...

    it's now been full month with ea customer support and they have no clue what my problem is. last email was two days ago that said:

    "Thank you for contacting EA Support regarding your issues with Shift 2 Unleashed and your bonus unlocks. As a gamer myself, I completely understand your frustration, and I will do everything I can to assist you further. I apologize for the inconvenience, but we're currently looking into this issue. Please allow us a little more time to investigate and find a solution."


    As a gamer myself.. LOL yeah right....

    About the patch not updating in steam: I contacted Steam support the day after the patch was launched by EA. I have yet to receive any response. If I hear anything useful for the steam users out there I will post back here.

    Anyone see noticeable improvements with the patch to drift events when using a wheel? I know it wasn't in the release notes but I thought maybe the input lag issue may have helped? Here's hoping.

    Thanks in advance.

    i have not tryd drift anymore but since the accel pedal still doesnt feel quite right i dont think drift has improved. and about the aditional events, i really dont know about those, i didnt get my limited edition cars nor special events, so i just got that little mod to unlock all the cars, then bought what i could, but i guess the events will never have or know if i have them.

    Yes wheel lag is non existent ...its awesome finally seeing my hands and the hands on the screen always matching. Performance is better for me as well...but my framerates drops stupid when im racing with a ton of other cars but guess I finally need to break down and buy a quad core.

    The quad core won't help... I have an i7 @ 4 GHz with a slightly OCed GTX 480 and I have the same problem, especially at night... yesterday I checked CPU and GPU usage while gaming... CPU usage always stayed below 30% no matter how many cars there are on the screen... GPU usage goes down when there are many cars, for example at the beginning of night races when I am in the back of the grid with many cars in front, I have a GPU usage of ~65% with 45-50 fps... if I would have 100% GPU usage all the time I would never dip below 60 fps... in day races I always have 60+ fps, because 65% GPU usage is enough for day races... conclusion: for me it looks like Shift 2 only uses max. 2 cores of the CPU... if it would fully utilize a quad core, there should be absolutely no performance problems with 20+ cars in front...

    Go to the Carlot, eg: Go to the Lambo that comes with the game, when your at the lambo press left(scroll through the Lambo's) you will see that the Lambo LP45 is there.

    BTW you do have an EA account?
