F1 2013's Classic Edition - a premium version of the game featuring the full range of F1 2013's classic content - costs £10 more than the Standard Edition, judging by early retailer listings.

GAME currently lists the Classic Edition for £49.99, £10 more than the asking price of the Standard Edition, while Amazon wants a whole £10 more, asking £49.99 for the Standard Edition and £59.99 for the Classic.

So what do you get for that extra tenner?

Well, in addition to the 1980s content included in the standard game, you'll also get access to the bonus 1990s content featuring six "iconic" cars and "a host" of classic drivers, including David Coulthard, Eddie Irvine, Alain Prost. and Jacques Villeneuve, plus the Classic Tracks Pack featuring two tracks: Imola and Estoril.

Standard Edition owners will be able to pick up the content as DLC later in the year.

F1 2013 was announced yesterday for release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC this September. As well as classic cars and tracks, this year's game also features enhanced visuals, mid-session saves and the return of Grand Prix Mode. There aren't any exploding tyres, though.

VideoGamer.com Analysis

Considering F1 2013's biggest new feature appears to be the inclusion of classic content, do you think it's right for Codemasters to charge £10 more for the full experience?

In all fairness they should just charge a tenner to update F1 2012 to F1 2013 via a patch, but as long as there's a market for paying £40+ a year for the game you bought last year with a few minor tweaks they'll keep getting away with it.
