Microsoft has just released a new video of the upcoming Forza Motorsport 5 game set to be released on November 22nd, 2013 for the Xbox One.

The new video focuses on the company’s partnership with Audi and explains why the Le Mans-winning R18 e-tron quattro is a worthy addition to the game. You will see interviews with Tom Kristensen, nine-time winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and his Audi Sport Team Joest teammates — the most successful team in modern endurance racing. They will explain their passion for drive and what it takes to succeed at the highest levels.

As a first, you will see some scenes filmed at the Le Mans Circuit de la Sarthe, which means that it will be part of the upcoming Forza Motorsport 5.

We don’t know about you, but we are getting more excited about the release of Forza each and every day.


Fans of Formula One legend Ayrton Senna will be thrilled to know that their iconic hero will be part of Gran Turismo 6.

GT6 producer Polyphony Digital, together with the Ayrton Senna Institute, recently made the announcement that a collaboration was in order between the two companies that could see Senna, considered by many as one of the greatest racecar drivers in history, as a playable character in the actual racing simulator.

The Senna pack will be made available as a downloadable content and, while nothing imminent was announced as to what the pack will contain, all points seem to lead to him being in the game with players afforded the opportunity to "trace the roots of Ayrton Senna’s racing career."

In addition to this news, plans also call for a limited edition PlayStation 3 Ayrton Senna Bundle to be sold in Brazil with the bundle coming with an assortment of freebies, including a copy of Gran Turismo 6, bonus in-game credits, and even the inclusion of Anniversary Edition cars.

There’s a lot to like about Ayrton Senna being in Gran Turismo 6, especially for those who still consider him as the finest F1 racer in history.

Remember, GT6 hits shelves on December 6, 2013. If you’re having trouble with the math, that date is around six weeks away!

Bathurst — also known as the Mount Panorama or Motor Racing Circuit Bathurst — is a racetrack located in Bathurst , New South Wales, Australia. Each year, the track is the home of two major shows: Bathurst 12 Hour Motor Race, held each February, and the Bathurst 1000 Motor Race, held each October. What is very cool about this circuit is that it is not a traditional racetrack, as it is actually becomes a public roadway when it’s not being raced on.

With the Bathurst 1000 getting closer — it kicks off on October 10th — the folks at Polyphony decided to reveal a new promo video for the upcoming Gran Turismo 6 that features the Aussie raceway.

We are not very sure if Bathurst will be featured in GT6 or if this is just a simple marketing strategy, but it is still pretty neat to see this racetrack in its digital form.

Electronic Arts released a new trailer video for the "Need For Speed Rivals" racing game, this time focusing on the progression and pursuit technology upgrades. As expected, the new "NFS Rivals" will offer all the gadgets the players are used to from previous iterations, but taken to a completely new level of customization.

The best part of the new game is that it will offer its players the ability to drive a bunch of rare exotics , like the Pagani Zonda , Bugatti Veyron and the strange looking Lamborghini Veneno .

All the latest sports cars are also featured in the game, including the 2014 Corvette Stingray , the SRT Viper and the McLaren MP4-12C .

The new Need For Speed Rivals will be released on November 22nd, 2013. The game was specially designed for for the PlayStation 4 and the XBox One, but it can also be played on PS3 and XBox 360.

Gran Turismo 7 Production to Conclude Within Two Years

Gran Turismo fans who are getting giddy about the game’s impending launch now have something specific to hitch their proverbial wagons on.

Series creator, Kazunori Yamauchi, has come out and said that the sixth installment of the hit racing franchise is roughly 80-percent complete, with some fine tuning still in the pipeline before the game hits shelves later this year.

In addition to earlier disclosing that Gran Turismo 7 will come out within two years, news of GT6 being this close to completion is stoking what is already a growing fire among Gran Turismo fans

While it’s understandable to look forward to GT7, considering that it’s going to be released for the much more powerful PlayStation 4, looking past GT6 is going to be a mistake.

It’ll be interesting to see how fast the game flies off the shelves or how close it’s going to come to approaching the $800 million Gran Theft Auto V fetched in its first day.

The video game business is evolving much more rapidly than many movie studios in terms of their broad reach and level of interactivity with the players who devote hours to winning the race, collecting a mad fleet of exotic cars , or even doing the most efficient kill shots on retro robo future zombies. Or something.

The automotive genre of the gaming industry is quite a unique subset. Guys and gals who have never enjoyed most first-person-shooters, RPGs and other fantasy wizard content can somehow really love driving games.

Gran Turismo is obviously the mack daddy franchise, but its lead over the improving Forza, Need for Speed and others is diminishing.

As awesome as GT5 and GT6 are, the level of game play is always pretty serious. It might start out with paint jobs and ECU chips for an old used MX-5 that is now a giant killer, but Gran Turismo gets extremely stressful and difficult as the Mario Kart friendliness of the first tracks becomes the brutal London F1 course, Sardinia rally stage, or the legendary Nordschleife in Nürburg.

The light-hearted escapism of the old Donkey Kong Country series is long gone in this intense generation of lifelike games. Your escape will be directly into the racing cockpit. Your eyes will bleed from starting at the 250 mph warp speed down the Mulsanne straight, hate your own slow-fitted fingers, and maybe - just maybe - win a race or two.

Grand Theft Auto takes a totally different path. Instead of the glamor of the world’s best tracks and circuits, the GTA approach is much more down-to-earth. You are a professional criminal building an empire. But there are guys around every corner who want to be the next Tony Montana also.

So you become a fierce and hardened street tough playing the game. Even in the lush green lawns of posh suburbs, the boys will always be in the basement doing evil deeds and wild burnouts on GTA 5 . The goal is to be a fun escape from the reality of speed limits, paying tolls and parking tickets. All the boring parts of life.

So where does the new GTA app fit into this mix? Called iFruit, the new iPhone and iPad apps are companion pieces that integrate with console game play. Build your ideal whip, train your Rottweiler or just browse the enormous game play guide application when stuck.

Is iFruit the perfect time-waster for all those boring hours spent *not* playing GTA 5 ?

In this high-tech world, pretty much everything you see on the screen is computer generated. However, the new "Filmspeed" — the latest ad spot for Forza Motorsport 5 — is a little bit different. It was filmed one frame at a time using a high-speed video camera bolted into the engine block of a McLaren 12C supercar .

The 12C supercar runs on a racetrack and it blasts past 680 frames printed on aluminum panels at a maximum filming speed of 120 mph. Now this is the right way of filming a great video, don’t you agree? Of course a professional driver and a close track were used, so you shouldn’t try this at home.

So, even though this may look like it was computed generated, what you’re watching was shot via camera. Check out the video to see for yourself how the filming was made.
