I wonder if they are testing the waters to gauge fan reaction.

Well, I definitely want a POD Racer that's for sure! :)

I don't think anyone can deny that. Especially since the original has not aged well at all.
If Sony wanted to create a new Pod Racer game, I'm all for it. I'd kickstart that even.

Seems like a typical developer side-project. I wouldn't say no to anything Star Wars-related, though.

Good lawd, this takes me back to N64 memories. Ahh those were the days. Hopefully Pod racing will finally make a return on PS4/Xbox One. One can only wonder how visually amazing it could be.

I would pay good money for this game :-)

I played the hell out of racer revenge on ps2, one of the first games I bought that generation. I'd get an other one for sure.

Okay we get an rumor about Sony might buy Crytek now we get this concept art from Sony London artist using the CryEngine?

Okay that is really fishy....

Not really Cry engine is avaiable to anyone with a capable pc out there...

younglj011565d ago

True but why use an 3rd party engine when I'm sure they have their own in house engine? This artist could have release this concept in Unreal 4 engine but the fact he choose CryEngine too show the public is more than what meets the eye...

@younglj01´s reply:

Well the Cryengine offers better outdoor visuals than the Unreal Engine so that just might be the reason i suppose.

millerj27401565d ago

Any pod racer game would have to come from EA though, wouldn't it? Because of their exclusivity deal with Disney.

sjaakiejj1559d ago

Strictly speaking they could make a deal with EA. But then again that's pretty unlikely. If a Pod Racer game is in development, I'm almost certain it isn't at Sony.
