PGR4 vs GT HD

Racing big boys gun engines and compare exhaust pipes in new trailers

On the surface, Project Gotham Racing 4 and Gran Turismo HD are bitter enemies, but deep down they actually have an awful lot in common. Like the Ferrari 600 Imola, which is the stunning star in both of these new trailers for the two next-gen racers.

Ferraris are old hat in the PGR universe, but for GT fans Gran Turismo HD will be remembered for being the first game in the series to feature the sexy Italian cars.

So it's Ferrari versus Ferrari, PGR4 versus GT HD, Xbox 360 versus PlayStation 3... You can check out both trailers for yourself and draw your own conclusions.

Forza and Gran Tourismo were competing?

How did PGR get into the mix?

Forza and GT are bitter enemies, not GT and PRG. They're COMPLETELY different games.

Maybe they meant, I dunno, Ridge Racer and PGR? No, Rodge Racer doesn't use licensed cars. Need for Speed? Nope.

Slam PGR in this comparison all you want, but it's like comparing... I dunno... Forza and Ridge Racer. It's just two different levels of game.

Yeah, I thought Forza vs GTHD. You can't really compare with PGR it's not quite the same. PGR is primarily street racing for kudos. (arcade style) Forza and GT are track based (simulator style).

Im a Sony fanboy myself, but looking at both titles I think I prefer GTHD.
Not just because its on the PS3, but because I think (Once again, not just because im a Sony fanboy) that the GT series.
But I also think that GTHD may be the excuse for not releasing GT5, but just releasing a revamped GT4.

EDIT: My above comparision was of Forza and GTHD, due to PGR4 being a totally different type of racer.

That was a truly amazing trailer of the Ferrari in action in the GT HD game. It was so realistic that i forgot i was watching a game and not a real live car show. When that comes out, i'm definitely picking it up.

Really nice way to start flamewars. How could this pass as news??

Let's Remember Some Xbox 360 Games

Luke Plunkett of Kotaku writes, "I think we all took the Xbox 360 for granted. Other all-time greats like the SNES and PS2 seem to be remembered more fondly than Microsoft’s console, which tends to be recalled as more of a thing that happened than a platform to be treasured."

A Kotaku writer pining for Xbox's golden years. I'm guessing there will be some good comments here.

“WE”didn’t take it for granted, M$ did.

What happened prior to launch of the One up through current day with their marketing and focus away from games and consumers. The failure of the One has nothing to do with the 360 being great. In fact backward compatibility and the 360 is about all the One had/has going for it. Now M$ is dumping money into fornite articles to try and be seen as more than they are, a company that doesn’t give a damn about its fan boys or products.

Top 10 Racing Games of All Time

Clickonline writes "To many, cars are simply a way of getting from point A to point B. But to gamers they are a way of doing so as quickly as possible, while leaving opponents trailing in your wake. The racing genre’s grid has always been full of fierce competitors. And there’s no indication that this will change any time soon with Gran Turismo 6 taking to the start/finish straight and next-gen exclusives such as Driveclub and The Crew."

Tesla's CEO Feared Microsoft Would Make His Car Racist And Slow

Jalopnik - I'd just taken over as Tesla's PR guy and had been contacted by old friends at Microsoft Game Studios about including the Tesla Roadster in Project Gotham Racing 4. Darryl Siry, my boss, took me into Martin Eberhard's (Tesla's Co-founder/then CEO) office to broach the topic. That's when it went very wrong.
