More news on PCM09 - new interview
News

In an interview with Clément Pinget done by the Dutch site PCMWereld.com, more info on PCM09 is being revealed. Although it's not the usual "reveal it all", we do get to learn a little bit more about what to expect - but when it comes to new features and what we won't see in PCM09.

One of the new things that we'll definitely see in 09 is virtual rankings, like you also see on tv from time to time. E.g., if you have a rider in the lead on Mont Ventoux, and he's the Virtual Leader, this will now show up in the game at fixed spots. Small, but quite nice feature, I'd say.

When it comes to track cycling, Clément mentions that there's new velodromes added (we knew that). One of these velodromes will be out in the open air (we didn't know that ;)). The other two are in-door and will look pretty much like in PCM08, but with more details.

And when it comes to details, many have been wondering if PCM09 will require even more computer power than PCM08 did. In the interview, it's said that the requirements won't differ much from PCM08 - luckily for some of us ;)

In general, there's more 'denials' than 'confirmations'. Clément Pinget, although indirectly, denies the rumour that a cyclo cross game is on its way. He does say, though, that it's something that Cyanide is looking at to potentially expand the commercial value in some countries. He also denies that track cycling will become a part of career mode, although this has been much wished by some communities. Also, Pinget mentions that it still - like in PCM08 - won't be possible to 'take a lap' on the peloton in track mode, which isn't quite ideal considering the fact that disciplines such as points race and scratch have been implented in PCM09.

Will one of the funny-speaking wooden shoes wearing people be so kind as to translate the part where they mention a press conference or whatever it is it says? thanks Smile

I'm not too sure what it exactly says, but from what I see, it won't be in PCM09, so I didn't really bother Pfft

i hope it does. Press Confrences could work well.
#8 | EintrachtFan on 23. March 2009 23:36
If i look on the date at PCMWereld - isn't that news over a month old?
#9 | CrueTrue on 24. March 2009 08:05
Hadn't noticed that - but yeah, seems like it.

But as you can see, people didn't know about it. So for us, it's still news Wink

isso: not looking at your insults ( Wink ), here you go: Various forums suggested to implement an option to have a (big) press conferance before the start of big races. Pinget said: It is not included in PCM '09, but what isnt there, may come sometime.

Thank you mighty funny-speaker.

I salute your explanation and offer my services as a modern day Don Quixote if ever one of your windmills were to rebel.
