Interesting...I was wondering the same thing about Beach Buggy Racing. Good to know that was addressed. And thank you for the time stamp.

No problem. I worked out that to play the six player co-op on beach buggy racing you'd need to have over £200's worth of game controllers lol which is nuts

I'm more concerned about the lack of couch co-op and what seems to be a phasing out of LAN options across both the xb1 and ps4.

Huh, what? No Online for Beach Buggy?
Try Forza Horizon 2 & Forza Motorsport 5, instead of Beach Buggy!

Not really the point. I was looking for a Mario Kart or Sonic Racing type of game that I could play online with friends.

Xbox one has a better CPU, PS4 has a better GPU and RAM. Ok with that said the games are still being made the same way and look just a tad bit better on PS4. Xbox one also got 10 percent more performance out of their GPU without Kinect. 720p at 30fps is last gen stop with the hate both systems are equally fun which is all that matters. I'm atm having more fun on my xbox one... just sayi'n

Interesting read. Don't really care much for online co-op myself, but a shame it's not exploited to its full potential.
