With the exception of series like Gran Turismo and Forza, racing games on consoles tend to shy away from strict simulation, opting instead for a more arcade-focused experience. But veteran PC racing sim developer SimBin wants to change all that.

But among console gamers, the company is an unknown. So what can you expect from SimBin's first console foray?
