GR shatters PS3 F1 Monaco record

GamesRadar UK had been playing loads of PS3 since its European release last month (well, before that too) and that includes the almost-as-real-as-you-are Formula One: Championship Edition. The game may not have received great reviews, but it's still been PS3's third best-selling game in the UK so far and some of the more "petrolhead" members of the GamesRadar UK team really love it.

So much so, in fact, that they reckoned they could beat Michael Schumacher's 2004 lap record of 1'14.439 around the incredibly tight Monaco circuit. Using manual gears and everything.

Check out the vid below (or via the Movies tab) to see PlayStation 3 rendering a near photorealistic Monaco while we thrash a McLaren Mercedes around the streets in record time. There's even an audio commentary to help you do the same. Go, go, go!

    Well done to both of you. We were just racing until we beat Schuey because that was the aim of the feature. After all, we can't spend days and days playing one game during office hours. Well, except Sega Rally, but that was different ;)
