While Electronic Arts have been publishing NASCAR games for over a decade, the series has now switched hands to the all-consuming Activision, who will be publishing NASCAR 11.
damn Activision taking over..they ain't playing around no more
It's quickly becoming a bleak world, my friend.
Most certainly. Its only going to get worse.
And then destroy all of what we hold dear
Since when was Nascar a good game. Just another crap game to add to the long list of crap games from Craptivision.
dirt to daytona was an exelent game.
Yea dude dirt to daytona was awesome. only if it had online play it would of made it all the more better.
NR2003 or anytime sierra had papyrus working on it. I doubt this will be any good but who knows, just glad its not ea.
Theres a game called GT5 that has the best Nascar racing ive seen....like really
release all the nascar games you want. the real nascar simulator is GT5 =D just look at the footage!
Because you can't race 43 cars on the track in gt5 but if i had to choose between the two, I would definitely buy GT5. More diversity in cars and racing styles makes GT5 seem like 5 games in 1.
I watched the video and it looks great, but the video seem... I don't out of place with the music. I was expecting something like Bob Seger, AC DC or something of that nature for a NASCAR video. Not that nice easy listening calm music (more what I like).
Activision Nascar game: $59.99 Extra fee to be able to steer: $4.95/month Kotick's response to criticism of pricing scheme? "Oh, you'll pay and you'll like it."
LMAO! How much to switch gears?
doesn't GT5 have this? i dont think we will need another nascar game
What about PC, Xbox 360, Wii, PSP, DS, etc gamers who don't have access to a PS3 or GT 5 when it releases? I think people are underestimating the appeal of Nascar in the States, EA's Nascar games haven't been that great in a while now so if someone else is willing to take a stab at it, more power to them.
Not to be an @sshole. But why would you buy a Nascar game when GT5 has a Nascar mode just as robust as any other Nascar title. Plus much, much more.
You beat me to it...lol bubbling you up. lets see Nascar look better than GT5's. PolyDig ought to make a Nascar DLC pack and ad a Cup mode too and get rid of Bobby Kotick's need for speed
Cause some people don't own PS3's man.
Really why are people disagreeing with me? Are you saying that everyone owns a PS3?
Not much of a racing fan myself, but I'll buy GT5 so I can get into the genre without needing to buy another racing game for a long time. I don't actually own a PS3 at this point but should by January. NASCAR and F1 seem like pointless titles to me, though I don't know much about the genre. It seems any racing fan would be better of buying a PS3 and GT5 than blowing 120+ to get a fraction of the content from other sources now and still need to buy more racing games in the next few years.
GIT R DONE!!! I wanna go fast!!
Please step in and crush this monopoly.
Um, look at AT&T and Comcast... I don't think they'll do crap as they give it the excuse of calling it a, "healthy monopoly".
Anyone find this comment hilarious XD!
Take down ClearChannel while you're at it.
No thanks I'll be playing NASCAR in GT5 in Nov
Never quite understood the fascination about turning left two times in an oval for five hundred laps myself.
Agreed, anyone who plays these games and has fun must be dense.
If i remember correctly it never sold well anyways so I don't think EA is missing out on anything.
A independent study conducted by ME shows that NASCAR consistently outsells FIFA in the South. YEE HAW!!
you mean it sells better than a football game in a place that barely care ? :p
With GT5 and iRacing I'll have my NASCAR needs covered.
GT5 is all we need, you are no longer required
Activison is the best gaming company ever. DOn't believe me? Look how many sheeple buy their awful games despite Bobby Kotick's open hatred of almost everything. Activision isn't what is wrong with gaming, its the people that buy their games.
With Activision doing this it will probably only come with a few cars, tracks and drivers with the rest being available via DLC for around $10 apiece.
Hmm, I think Bob missed seeing this video.... everyone watch this and you tell me what NASCAR says themselves. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
I hope that they can also make sure that EA doesn't extend the NFL exclusive agreement.
It'll be made by Activision.........In that case It'll be mediocre at best.
I want a good full featured Nascar game. I havent played one since the PS1
Nascar: Dirt To Daytona(PS2) and NR2K3(PC) are awesome
Nascar Black Ops cataclysm..
**raises hands That's it? **lowers hands while shakes head.. -End statement
I see a $15 DLC pack that includes one Spiderman Themed track and one Spiderman Themed car. And nobody in the world has the same discilpine and pursuit for perfection as Polyphony Digital. There is no way in hell Activision will even come close.
I'd stick with GT5 nascar.
I haven't done the research do to my limit appeal of GT, but is GT5's Nascar mode a full fledge game? I mean, nascar games i played u race against about 43 cars.
I was wanting another console NASCAR game but not from Activision or EA I was hoping Codemasters would end up making NASCAR games GT5 is going to be awesome but it's not got all the tracks or 43 cars on track at once
Maybe the PC platform will get a decent Nascar game this time though. EA dropped PC support for Nascar games. I know Activision is likely to charge extra for you to race online though. I never heard of the developer developing the new Nascar series. That is a bad sign for this already. I will hold judgement for now, but to not have shown anything and plan to release around Feb 2011. Sounds like they just shoveling out the first game to get people to buy it.
I can see it now Bobby Kotic charging gamers per lap !
I really have been wanting to play a new NASCAR game. GT5 has NASCAR tracks and cars, but isn't a full fledged NASCAR game.
This is irrelevant
gt5 only has 8 cars racing nascar. that really sucks. ea didnt know what the hell they were doing. time to break out the steering wheel next year. man im pumped for this
