How can an arcade game racer challenge a Driving/Racing simulator?

All they need to do is add tons of more motion blur and add super duper shiny cars, buildings. roads and then claim it to look better than any other racing game on the market.

anything thats announced even if not in development quote is a challenger for an oppositions successful title

mystogan you are ridiculous,the games not even started in development,take your fanboy BS somewhere else

PGR was my fave racing game from dreamcast-xbox1 (never played it on 360)more so than gt i have to admit, to me it had just the right amount arcade mixed with a little sim,looking forward to this

Love PGR. PGR2 was the best for me. It was the best online console racer for quite a while, cat and mouse being a lot of fun. Problem being this might not really be a PGR, only in name now bizarre have gone so have to see what happens to any new game of the series.

Hideo_Kojima3645d ago


You say that PGR had the right amount of arcade mixed into the simulator.

But from a game like GT5 I expect 0 (ZERO) arcade factors.

I want it to be as realistically hard as possible even if it means I end up driving around in circles and never managing to complete a lap.

PGR is arcade racer


The challenger of GT5 is GT6.

N4WAH3645d ago (Edited 3645d ago )

I agree.
IMO GT is king of the hill.

I thought this thread was about PGR?

Always loved the pick up and play mechanics of PGR and PGR 4 was really cool with the weather effects and motorbikes. All it needs is a more varying and deeper career mode.

Crazyglues3645d ago (Edited 3645d ago )

Yeah I agree, My only question is what in the world took them so long...

From the second the guys left who worked on PGR4 -Microsoft should have said, hmmm, guess we should find someone else who can make PGR5...

I loved PGR4 played it over and over, it was a pretty cool game... I enjoyed it.. the weather effects were pretty cool and having bikes was a blast..

This should have been in-development years ago... I don't know why you would not keep making it when it was clearly still selling and fans, still loved it.


thief3645d ago

More like a Forza challenger.

Fan Tastic3645d ago

Ugh, why waste resources on mediocre IP's.

hennessey863645d ago

gt5 no but it will own most other driving games. i loved pgr2 and the edimborough track this gens pgrs have been a bit off a let down

I love this series...although PGR 4 wasn't my favorite I've spent many hours playing through.

"Microsoft is in talks with several European independent studios to bring the Project Gotham Racing series back to the Xbox 360"

Wait a minute, MS don't have their own studio to make their own game? They're looking for independent studios to make their game? What's wrong with this picture?


The problem is when you get independent studios to make your games they never turn out great. Look at Crackdown 2, it was made by some independent studio and the game was a few steps backwards.

Dread3645d ago

nothing, as you know MS does not own that many studios. Its very simple.

N4PS3G3645d ago

umm fans are still getting a new PGR and you're crying. Nothing wrong with the picture if you ask me.

N4WAH3645d ago (Edited 3645d ago )


What happened to Turn 10 making the next Project Gotham?
Now they are going to just hand it to any studio they can find?
This is why, as a 360 gamer, I have lost nearly all faith in MS.

Get Codemasters or maybe Slightly Mad studios to make it. Don't hire just anyone willing to take it on.

Dread3645d ago

how do you know that they are going to hand it to just anyone?

dont hate before we know the facts please.

Bnet3433645d ago

Sony did the same thing with the Heavy Rain and LittleBigPlanet and Motorstorm devs. They were all independent devs and Sony bought 2 of 3. Want to say that's a bad thing now?

Cold 20003645d ago

Keep quiet!! Dont tell them that!

Bnet3433645d ago

Demon Soul's - From Software
inFamous - Sucker Punch
Heavenly Sword - Ninja Theory

I can keep going, I still don't see how independent devs making games for others is a bad thing. Maybe you thought only Microsoft doing it was bad since you are a 1 bubble troll.

DlocDaBudSmoka3645d ago (Edited 3645d ago )

working on a known franchise, they wre doin all new franchises. so yea its a world of difference to let some no name to devel an existing franchise, compared to sony who bought the devs of new franchises.

Get the guys making DiRT do PGR 5. Would be quite awesome. I don't like racing games though.

What's the word I'm looking for?
