Weekly News #20
NewsWell, with four seperate news articles this week it really proves what a "mess" the community is right now ;) Information is rampant all over the net, and you can't even be sure that all of it are true. We are doing our best, though, to keep you updated.

Starforce to be implented in PCM 2007
As I said on several forums last week, it finally seems like we have a clarification on the Starforce-subject. Many have asked me whether or not the Starforce protection system would be in PCM 2007 or not, and I brought the question to Clément who answered the following:
"I don't know if it will be Starforce or not (editor's choice). As it's the only real
protection in the game industry (all other choices seems to me pure marketing to make the community happiest, but their games are cracked before the release :p) i guess it will be the same."

My conclusion? Starforce will definitely be implented ;)

Short beta phase
More 07-news. The beta tests have still not started at Cyanide which logically means that the beta phase will be quite short. For the same reason it seems like Cyanide will only choose few beta testers - and probably also only testers who have tried it before. So, for those of you who applied, well, don't get your hopes up too high.

No PSP-demo?
Even though the PSP-version of PCM 2007 will be released on the same day as the PC-version we still don't have a lot of information on that subject. That is proved by the fact that it's still undecided whether or not a demo of the (PSP) game will be available since it's actually Sony's choice. Unlike the PC-game market, the PSP game market are strictly controlled by Sony who - after all - are positive about the game. The game did pass Sony's alpha test earlier this month.
 
About the PSP-version, we have also been told that the beta phase will start very soon.

"Flawed" cover
After the cover was revealed in the PCM community people immediately started questioning if the cover was real or not. That is due to the fact that some of the shirts the cyclists wear on the cover are outdated:

1. The Cofidis-man in the middle wears the 2003-shirt of Cofidis; not the new one which is a lot more red.
2. The helmet worn by the guy in polka dots looks like the old Domina Vacanze-one.
3. The Kazak national jersey in the very left part of the cover is the one Vinokourov wore while riding for T-Mobile.

Another funny fact is that some of the riders have been copied from this picture: http://blog.erdener.org/archives/images/20050706-stage5-mcewen.jpg
Notice the facial expression of the man in the Green jersey (Boonen) and the Cofidis-guy and compare them to the cover -- yep, it's the same.

As mentioned in our news article earlier today the cover is not fake, though. You can read more about the case in our news article: http://www.pcmdaily.com/news.php?readmore=47

V3 of DB 2009 released
The futuristic career database by Weale and Belokiller has now gone into its 3rd version. The new version is pretty much the same as the V2, but it does bring new objectives for the teams and revised stats for some riders. For those who don't know the concept, it's a database which tries to predict the future. Therefore, you will find completely new teams, new riders, and more in this database.
Download it by clicking here.

A review of this database will be released soon - I promise ;)

Germany brings another database
Another ambitious DB-team has released a 2007 DB - the German CyM Team's 2007 DB. It's a pretty large 2007 DB which contains almost everything. Leader Jerseys have been included for every single PT-race, rider pictures for more than 95 % of the riders, new flags and accesories, true faces of about 150 riders, UCI 2007 calendar.

It also contains a lot of new 2007 races - and as something unique, they have made a tool which makes it easy to change the sponsors from race to race.
