Cool. Always liked PGR better than Forza.
But then again Bizarre won't be making this one, I suppose. Doesn't mean it's going to be bad :) I hope.

PG was a great mix of arcade and sim. Too bad I don't buy racers any more.

PGR4 was awful. PGR had its glory days on the original Xbox.

well, the racing part was, trick and the lap modes were great. The race ai was one of the worst versions I had ever seen, you literally had to drive perfectly to win. No matter how fast you went, the AI would always stay right behind you, which is extremely difficult in a game where there's a focus on maneuvers which tend to slow a car down.

PGR2 was pretty awesome though.

GT5's not even out yet....

Forza is a great game. And it's been a year since its release and GT5 isn't out yet, so it would have been worth it to buy Forza 3 when it launched.


PGR is arcade, not even near the Real Driving Simulator AKA Gran Turismo.

IMO they should get the guys who made NFS:Shift, Slightly Mad Studios, to make it. theyre independent so theres nothing stopping them there, and they know how to make a racing game that strikes a good balance between sim and arcade.

PGR is a great series, having basically shown the rest of the console developers how to do first-person view in car racing games, and made drifting popular in 'realistic' racers.

Need For Speed that they can make for 3 platform whereas PGR is limited to only the Xbox 360 fanbase.

IHateYouFanboys3276d ago (Edited 3276d ago )

are you seriously asking that question?

Slightly Mad Studios dont have an exclusive deal for NFS - theyre not even making the new need for speed games. Criterion are making Need for Speed Hot Pursuit.

Burnout is a franchise owned by a publisher, and they just contract it out to developers to make games in the series. Project Gotham Racing is in the same boat - Microsoft own the IP, and are free to shop it around to any developer they want. Slightly Mad Studios arent 'tied' to Need for Speed in the slightest.

you really need to understand how franchises and IPs work before you comment.

That would be a good idea. I enjoyed NFS:Shift.
