Quotes

"With digitally distributed games becoming bigger every year, we were able to make a compelling business argument that we could be financially successful doing this, while working with really cool indie talent on great IP" Senior Director of External Development Bob Loya stated
The Sunday Times' driving.co.uk supplement said: "Codemasters has much more accurately reproduced real engine noises, right down to the pop and crackle of exhaust over-run. Up to 16 microphones were attached to the real cars in order to record the sounds, with specialist equipment being used to avoid the mics near the exhaust melting."
"We understand that some people who bought Colin McRae Rally on Steam are upset and feel that it isn't the game they thought it would be. We have now updated the product description for clarification."
Cain added: "Kate is a valuable asset to the team, her experience in the digital retail world is already proving invaluable in shaping our strategy and future plans for growth."
