World Rally Championship simulation should be on PS2 in the USA sign now

Please release the WRC video game series on the US market.

Inspired by another petition on PetitionOnline.com for the release of the Official F1 racing series on PS2 (http://www.petitiononline.com/SonyF1/petition.html), this petition makes a similar request of the media and entertainment giant, Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA), regarding the official FIA World Rally Championship video game series. The WRC series has been updated on a regular basis to remain current with the real Championship and contemporary technology, but not for the US market. In the UK and Europe the game has received excellent reviews. Of course the fan base is stronger for Rally abroad (F1 too), but the US is a car culture and a media consumption giant. Like F1, the WRC season is covered on SpeedTV (but with a lower production value, unfortunately). And though we do have some decent rally games in the US (Colin Mcrae, Rallisport Challenge), they do not offer the same experience of WRC accuracy and Rally driving simulation that the official series appears to offer. This petition is to SCEA, asking them to put their money where their mouth is and make "the PlayStation brand synonymous with exceptional entertainment" (see below).

Please release the WRC video game series on the US market.

On Sony Computer Entertainemnt America's (SCEA) play station web page (http://www.us.playstation.com/about.aspx?id=management) you can access various statements about the corporation. I found this one interesting given the fact that SCEA has almost completely ignored or abandoned fans of Formula 1 and the World Rally Championship in the past several years:

Below is part of the description of SCEA's president Kasuo Hirai:

"Hirai presides over Sony Computer Entertainment America, PlayStations largest market, North America. As the fourth most powerful executive in the entertainment business, as ranked by Entertainment Weekly, Hirai is elevating the standards in interactive entertainment and making the PlayStation brand synonymous with exceptional entertainment, as well as on universal gaming experience."

With all due respect to Mr. Hirai, it's a shame that this sort of power doesn't translate to hearing and listening to fans of F1 and WRC in America.

Please release the WRC video game series on the US market.
