Microsoft is in talks with several European independent studios to bring the Project Gotham Racing series back to the Xbox 360, Develop can reveal.
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.
@MURKERR 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.
well you guys DID fell for the fanboy bullshit lol
PGR is arcade racer
The challenger of GT5 is GT6.
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.
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. .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
More like a Forza challenger.
Ugh, why waste resources on mediocre IP's.
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? @N4PS3G 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.
nothing, as you know MS does not own that many studios. Its very simple.
umm fans are still getting a new PGR and you're crying. Nothing wrong with the picture if you ask me.
ADVERTISING! /s 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.
how do you know that they are going to hand it to just anyone? dont hate before we know the facts please.
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?
Keep quiet!! Dont tell them that!
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.
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? Oh, that's right, Yay : ) !!!
'Shite' PGR never was good. lol Controls sucked.
not happy, pgr is my fav arcade racer, it wont be the same without bizzare creations making the game.
Its very simple. They know PGR has a decent following. So they can spent a small amount (6-8million) to make a wretchedly poor sequel, spend a decent amount on marketing and make 100% RoI. Same as fable 3, 99 nights 2, Forza 3 or Crackdown 2. Pity Sony for spending a bomb on Motorstorm 3 and GT5, they just dont know how to maximise profits.
Quality seems to be less important to you(the gamer) than profits. How backwards is that? I pity YOU.
So the most important factor is that the company maximize their profits while gamers get the short end of the stick? When the gamers get the better end, suddenly Sony is incompetent? If that is what you're implying, I know where I will spend my money on and it's not what Microsoft is offering.
Forza 3 was a huge approvement over Forza 2 and Fable 3 isn't a bad game. Neither are "wretchedly poor".
if bizzarre creations aint making it im not buying it.
I hope and trust that PGR will be more going to the direction of Grid rather than GT5/Forza. We already have two great sim games, now we could use a great racer w/ some sim over tone to it. PGR would fit in their nicely.
I loved the PGR series. First time I saw a Porsche Carrera GT. Sweet.
Great.I love PGR
Sorry this is going to fail. Bizarre Creations made this series to what it was and they left MS. Give it to another developer and they'll just do another half-ass game. Atleast try to get Bizarre Creations to make the 5th game, not some other developer.
They need to bring back PGR!
Love Bizarre Creations for how big they made PGR (and dont forget MSR for Dreamcast) I can't see how PGR5 will pan out. Was gutted Activision bought BC out. BC admitted they got a little bored with PGR, but they didn't exactly do anything new in PGR4's career, although the weather effects are amazing, and remained the best until GT5 announced its weather system. As much as id love to see PGR5, id still rather have BC do it, as impossible as that is
Loved PGr4, This Will Be Great
I remember PGR4 especially the changing of weather, the bikes and old racing cars with their skinny threads doing hot laps at the "Ring" in snow!! It also had a lot of very good tracks. Hope they keep all those good things and make the cars drive as similar to Forza3.
I never really liked Project Gotham. I'd much prefer they bring back Crimson Skies, or maybe make Brute Force, but good this time. C'mon M$, I bet there a tons of better franchises you could resurrect or even, you know, make a new one.
are you serious?? brute force?? Not even bungie or naughty dog would be able to make a 'good' game in that franchise.
Rallisport Challenge was always better than PGR in my opinion especially RSC2! It was too much fun! I would rather they make a sequel to that. Brute Force had some good ideas like the varied squad members you could switch between with the different skills, i always liked the invisible one
