Our impressions of the Sony Playstation 4's first racing title, DriveClub, were not particularly positive. That'd have been a real problem ten years ago, when a developer couldn't easily add new content to a game, but today's world of constantly connected consoles makes it easy for new features to be added long after a title goes on sale.
Driveclub, a racing title for the Playstation 4, was first revealed last year with a fair amount of promise. Our own Seyth Miersma was intrigued, citing the game's competent physics, good looks and social features, during a short demo at the Electronics Entertainment Expo. Set for a position in the launch roster for the latest generation of Sony's gaming console, fans were disappointed when the game was unexpectedly delayed.
We had our first taste of the upcoming Mad Max title for PS4 and Xbox One at E3 last year, and are happy to report that the dystopian driving title seems to be making good progress. To wit, the Avalanche Studios/Warner Brothers epic has just received a new trailer today, featuring the game's movie-star car: Magnum Opus.
In the world of console racing games, Forza Motorsport 5 is the prettiest title money can buy. If these screenshots are to be believed, though, it's only a matter of time before there's a new claim to that throne. These images are from Project CARS, a crowd-funded racing title set to arrive on the Sony Playstation 4, Microsoft XBox One, Nintendo Wii U and on PC later in 2014.
Playstation has been touting the upcoming racing game DriveClub from Evolution Studios as an important launch title pillar for the soon-to-street Playstation 4. We briefly demo'd DriveClub at E3 this summer, and saw a lot of the potential in both the gameplay and the baked-in social elements. With the game's recent inclusion in the latest official PS4 commercial, Perfect Day, playing DriveClub on Day One seemed like a foregone conclusion (scroll down to have a look).
Much like a real conflict, the console wars being waged between Microsoft and Sony spill into a number of different battlefields and theaters. Home to some of the fiercest fighting is the racing genre, which sees Microsoft's Forza Motorsport series go head-to-head with Sony's Gran Turismo series. While there's been plenty of press about Forza, GT has just struck back with some news that we aren't sure Turn 10 Studios and Microsoft can match.
The gaming world is abuzz with early love for the Playstation 4, if the water-cooler talk around the 2013 E3 conference are anything to go by. Much of this has to do with the vast potential of the new Sony hardware, though the announced price of $399 caught a lot of folks off guard in a nice way, and lots of potential Xbox One customers have been turned off by that system's always-on Internet connection and its lack of support for used games. If we look simply at the here and now of driving game
Need For Speed Rivals, the newest instantiation in a long-running franchise, has made plenty of news in and around this year's E3 show. We first heard about the game and its availability on both Xbox One and Playstation 4 some weeks ago, and the Hollywood media machine has pumped out plenty of news regarding the upcoming Need For Speed movie, as well. Hell, we even got a detailed look at the NFS version of the Shelby GT500 a few days ago. To the respective PR departments of Electronic Arts and D
While a lots of the driving games shown off at this year's Entertainment Electronics Expo (E3) leverage the vast power of the new Xbox One and Playstation 4 consoles, Polyphony Digital's Gran Turismo 6 will attempt to squeeze one more round out of the venerable Playstation 3. After playing a short demo version of GT6 here in Los Angeles, we can see both upside and downside with that strategy.
The Entertainment Electronics Expo – better known as E3 – has opened in Los Angeles with some great news for rat-rodding video-gamers everywhere (that's a thing, right?). Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced that it will be bringing a Mad Max title to Sony's Playstation 4 in 2014.
Sony held a big event last night where many thought it would debut its next-next-next-gen console system, the Playstation 4. As it turns out, Sony both did and didn't debut the PS4, choosing to keep the console's design a secret for now while premiering the new controller's look, a new Kinect-like camera peripheral and the machine's basic hardware specs.
