GRiD 2 Trailer and Screenshots

A new trailer uses live-action and gameplay footage to show off more of GRiD 2, Codemasters' upcoming racing sequel. This is accompanied by some new screenshots and the following explanation: "The video, part one of a series of three, follows the fortunes of Chris Harris, motoring journalist and regular contributor to YouTube’s DRIVE channel, who has joined together with Codemasters to provide insight into car handling and vehicle selection for the game. In the video, Chris throws his McLaren around the famous circuit in pursuit of McLaren test driver Mat Jackson and uses in-game expertise from GRID 2 and Codemasters staff to gain the advantage. The video shows how Brands Hatch is created in-game and features stunning real life footage of the stunning McLarens power-sliding around some of the most iconic corners in racing, and is now playing at www.youtube.com/gridgame."

This vid didn't show much gameplay, so here are a couple more:

Chicago
California

The graphics look fine, but not all that different from the original, which is 5 years old at this point. Which is fine, since the original looked so good, but surprising given the time span.
Those videos are clearly taken from console. Codemasters did the same thing with DiRT Showdown, in that all the preview videos were based on the console footage - when I played the demo on PC the graphics were way better than anything I'd seen.

Personally I think it's moronic to put out footage from a console version, particularly when they super-compress it. At least with Crysis 3 they use the PC footage.
