In this economy, $90,000 is a treasure chest for a lot of people. It’s enough money to sustain a decent-sized household for an extended period of time. But for Neiman Marcus, $90,000 is only enough money to score you this rad-tastic racing simulator just in time for the holidays.
Pretty sweet, right?
If you’re the lucky few that can afford to throw 90 grand on the Pinel & Pinel Arcade Trunk, then we applaud you for it. It’s not like you’re splurging on a designer handbag, or even a diamond-encrusted timepiece. Nope, it’s a racing simulator that comes with controllers for four people, a 55-inch Sony 3D TV, racing seats, a PlayStation 3, a Thrustmaster T500RS wheel, a Bluetooth system, a multitude of microphones, a choice of 24 games, and, for the aesthetically inclined, 51 different colors for the calfskin cabinet.
And they said we love to splurge on unnecessary items. Trust us, if you’ve got the money and a sizable chunk of free space in your living room, there’s nothing unnecessary about this racing simulator.
Just a few days ago, we brought you the second trailer for Grand Theft Auto V, which is set to be released for Xbox 360 and PS3 in the Spring of 2013. The wait for the launch can be very aggravating, we know. To help satisfy your GTA thirst, Gevorg Karensky has created an awesome live-action short movie with a plot based on GTA — GTA IV and its main character, Nico Bellic, if you want to be specific.
His movie, called Grand Theft Auto: RISE, looks pretty true to the original and features one of our favorite cars — the BMW M3 — and not just a replica, like in the game. Unfortunately, the M3 meets a rather unhappy ending, but we still enjoyed every second of the car chase it was involved in.
Let us know in the comments section bellow if you like this movie, or you will rather wait for the GTA V for some "real" action!
The Hyundai Veloster is a fun little car that possesses enough power without having to be a pocket burner. There’s a certain level of charisma attached to this sports hatch that few in its segment can replicate.
That’s why the Veloster can appear in a promo video like this without looking out of place. The video is actually a promo for the latest version of "Asphalt 7: Heat" — the iPhone and iPad driving game — and a competition that Hyundai is running in conjunction with the game’s developers, hence the Veloster Turbo’s starring role.
Turn 10 Studios is continuing its Behind The Scenes video series for Forza Horizon with the fifth episode. This series has been created in order to offer fans an inside look at how the developers behind the game continue to build engagement and content for "Forza" games.
If in the previous episodes we have met the creators of the game and learned what makes Forza Horizon such an incredible games, the fifth episode gives viewers a look at the extensive community support that is a central component of the "Forza Horizon" experience.
The game features constantly updated online multiplayer challenges and monthly DLC packs so there is always new content to try and new events to explore. In fact now everyone is waiting for the Forza Horizon Rally Expansion Pack set to arrive to Xbox LIVE on 18th December 2012.
As is Need For Speed’s fashion of releasing new titles and sequels every year, this year we have witnessed NFS launching a sequel to Most Wanted, a title that is considered to be the best and the most visceral NFS game ever made.
Unlike the Hot Pursuit series, the Most Wanted ’05 didn’t really bother with damage or physics. The main goals were to take down the Blacklist and escape from the cops however possible. Most Wanted allowed users to ram through road-blocks, heavily customize a lineup of top brand supercars in its era, and introduced in-game clips that featured real actors interacting with you. Developed by BlackBox, the Most Wanted ’05 was a game that even a non-gamer would enjoy. It definitely was the best car racing game ever made, and, safe to say, is the best even in today’s standards. Even after 7 years have passed since its launch, we’d still play that game and enjoy terrorizing the streets in gleaming, noisy Blacklist cars that we won.
So the big question is, does the Most Wanted 2012 live up to the great reputation of its previous title?
Click past the jump to find out our answer to the above question.
Rockstar Games has revealed the second trailer for the fifth installment in its very successful Grand Theft Auto series. Next to a lot of action, this video game will have everything a car addict dreams about: cars, bikes, planes, trains and lots of explosions and crashes!
Rockstar Games has described the upcoming Grand Theft Auto V as the largest and most ambitious title in the series to date. Set in the sprawling city of Los Santos and the surrounding area, Grand Theft Auto V delivers a world of unprecedented scale and detail from the mountaintops to the depths of the ocean.
The new Grand Theft Auto V is coming to Xbox 360 and PS3 during Spring 2013. For those interested, the game is already available for pre-order.
Each vehicle will offer its own unique races, challenges, and mods to unlock, and players will get 50,000 Speed Points in the full game just for playing the demo version.
The new demo tracks and compares everything players do against their friends and offers up game-play recommendations and challenges throughout the open world as a result. Players are constantly blazing a trail of high scores not only in their game, but in their friends’ games as well.
Give credit to the folks over at Electronic Arts for knowing how to promote a video game.
With the release of Need for Speed: Most Wanted drawing closer and closer, the promotional train is out in full force, making a stop in Paris, France for an impressive supercar parade in and around some of the city’s most famous landmarks.
The video, courtesy of YouTube member alexsmolik, features a plethora of Ferraris, Porsches, Lamborghinis, and even a Ford GT Heritage taking through the streets of Paris while visiting a number of tourist destinations, including the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, and Champs Elysées.
All these cars have also been stickered up with Need For Speed: Most Wanted badges just so the people checking them out know what the whole parade is all about.
Check out the video and watch them exotics take Paris by storm, Need for Speed: Most Wanted style.
For some people, playing with R/C cars harkens back to the days of our childhood when the only thing we cared about was not running out of batteries for our beloved radio-controlled machines.
But for other people, R/C cars are used in far more enterprising - and awesome - ways. Take Need for Speed, for example. To create some hype surrounding the release of the new NFS game, Most Wanted, Electronic Arts decided to have a car chase recreated...using R/C cars.
The result? A rollicking two-and-a-half-minute video of awesomeness.
Featuring a Nissan GT-R, a Ford Mustang, a Porsche 911, and a band of Chevrolet Corvette police cars, the R/C car chase scene is straight out of any car movie. The video was amazingly executed by the people of RocketJump, complete with stunts, sound effects, and even a police helicopter.
Check out the video and see for yourself how a Mustang was able to jump over a helicopter. If it sounds too good to be true, it’s because it is.
Far removed from the realistic, and often times way too serious world of Gran Turismo and Forza Motorsport, video game developer Codemasters is offering a racing game that’s a little more in tune with the inner child in all of us.
Taking its cue from the wild and wacky world of Mario Kart, Codemasters is bringing the world of Formula 1 to a more cartoonish world. The game is called F1 Race Stars and as the preview trailer shows us, there’s plenty to like about the game, including the prevalent power ups (not seen in the real world of Formula 1) and the ability to use DRS to one’s advantage (seen in the world of Formula 1).
Codemasters is also touting the gameplay of F1 Race Stars, particularly the career mode that offers three levels of difficulty, as well as a slew of challenges, timed races, and even Grand Prix competitions. Really, if you’re a little spent with the hours upon hours of playing GT5 or Forza 4, the F1 Race Stars will offer you a fresh way to enjoy Formula 1 racing.
The game will be drop on shelves this coming November and will be available on the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 consoles.
