I cannot decide what platform.

Am about to get a PS3 but reading tonite, seeing a few concerns. My history is that I used to race F1-99-02 a lot, and international hotlap comps, now getting back into it.

PS3 - reading that graphics aren't the best, FPS variable. But can race with a mate online.

XBOX - Better graphics, better FPS, will need to race online with no mates

PC- well I already have this which is a plus. Best graphics, best FPS, again need to race online with non mates. PC is i7-920 at 3.6Ghz, NVidia GTS 480, 6Gb DDR3

While PC is the cheapest option at the price of the game, I don't mind gettng a console and wheel, but I prefer best graphics and FPS. Unsure how active online will be on the PC these days.

Any thoughts guys?

I have this on PS3 - I am not frustrated by the graphics or FPS, they are not the stunning eye candy type thing every time you turn your eye, but certainly not disappointing. Rain races are certainly interesting :)
BUT I only use this for a time killer - all my "proper" racing is done on the PC!

I have F1 2011 on PS3. I enjoy it and have played F1 games on PlayStation since the Psygnosis Formula One game on PS1. Still my favourite F1 game on PlayStation and no game has been as fun, but I digress!

I admit I found the FPS disappointing but I can see through that fairly easily. Just started career and customised the difficulty to my liking and really enjoying the game. Have not had a chance to play online and normally avoid it since some races seem to be ruined by losers. I'm not sure how to get into leagues or any of that stuff.

I'd say if you have a PC and are a serious sim racer then maybe the PC version? I have a decent wheel for PS3 which does the job enough to be fun.
