The upcoming Gran Turismo 6 will feature a total of 33 locations, with 71 different layouts. One of these locations is the 1.86 km (1.15-mile) hill climb at Goodwood, which joins famous locations, like Silverstone and Willow Springs.

At the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed , Gran Turismo will launch a new demo that will allow the expected 185,000-plus spectators to challenge Nick Heidfeld’s 41.6-second course record set in a Formula 1 car in 1999. Players will be able to race a range of stunningly recreated cars, thanks to the numerous PlayStation "race pods" installed at the event. Nissan and Alfa Romeo and Ford will also have pods on their Moving Motor Show displays.

Gran Turismo’s decision to feature the hill climb in the game comes in the same year as the Goodwood Festival of Speed’s 20th anniversary, so for sure participants at the event will have lots of surprises prepared.

Without question, Gran Theft Auto V is one of the most unique video games to have ever been developed in recent years. Races, for example, are taken in the context of GTA V as surviving the day without getting killed even if it means you having to run over a pedestrian or 10.

The franchise is already rich in history, something that has come to be expected from Rockstar Games’ super gaming franchise. Now in its fifth installment, GTA returns packed with improvements on just about every aspect of the game.

The graphics are sharper, the controls have been refined, and the story is still as complicated as ever. But as is the case with the GTA franchise, it’s not so much of a thinking man’s game as it is pure survival - in the context of trying to complete as many missions as possible.

The game is scheduled to hit shelves on September 17th, which makes it a little more than two months before we get our hands on one. And that’s when all the fun begins.

You’d think that with the upcoming release of Gran Turismo 6 and Forza 5 on both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, a new era of car racing games is about to be born.

On some level, that’s accurate. But there might be another developer that’s looking to stake that ’next generation racing game’ title all to itself.

We may not know of Anki at this point, but the start-up company is determined to make the kind of waves that’ll get everybody’s attention. How is it going to do that?

Well, the company is developing a new racing game experience that blends radio-controlled cars and artificial intelligence, all wrapped up in an iPhone app. There’s also a mat, smart cars with sensors, and Bluetooth accessories, which pretty much goes to show the detail and sophistication of this game.

In a nutshell, the game works in such a way that an iPhone app is used to control the RC cars, allowing them to perform numerous tricks and functions that belies what a standard RC car is capable of doing.

But the best part about this new game is that it’s still in its infancy, which means that we can expect more developments to arrive in due time.

For now, though, enjoy all the teaser videos Anki has released for the game. If for nothing else, these videos will definitely get your attention.

It’s been just a little over a month since GRID 2 hit shelves and the racing game has turned out to be a rather enjoyable diversion from our everyday lives.

It still doesn’t hold up to Gran Turismo or Forza Motorsports , but it’s the newest racing game out these days and as such, deserves our full attention. But if there’s one thing about the game that disappoints us, it’s the relative lack of some spicy aftermarket racecars ; a problem that Codemasters addressed with the release of a new DLC, called the Super Modified Pack.

As the name evidently suggests, the Super Modified Pack will feature four beastly racecars, including an 890-horsepower R32 Skyline GT-R , a 5ZIGEN Honda Civic Super Modified, and fully customized takes on the Subaru Impresa WRX STI and Mazda RX-7 .

That’s four belligerently powerful custom-tuned Japanese racecars that could be yours for $5.99 on Playstation 3 or 480 Microsoft Points (around $6) on the Xbox 360.

Sounds like a good deal to us.

There’s already a ton of excitement surrounding the upcoming release of Gran Turismo 6.

Though the game isn’t scheduled to hit shelves until November 28th, a lot of promotions involving GT6 have already been sprouting, hoping to catch the attention of gamers and car enthusiasts alike.

Recently, Sony announced that, beginning on July 2nd, players will now be able to download a free demo of GT6 , one that’ll sure to drive up interest of the game even further, thanks to a contest in the Nissan GT Academy to race against each other for a chance to win a seat in a real-life Nissan race car.

But if that doesn’t suit you, you can always opt for what Amazon is offering. The online store is offering the kind of promotion that’ll definitely raise your Gran Turismo 6 excitement level a few notches.

You can pre-order GT6 on Amazon and receive $1 Million in in-game credits to buy and build your dream garage from 1,200 cars. You’re not exactly getting actual money, but for that treat of $1 million in virtual currency, you can pretty much have your way in designing and upgrading your sports car any way you see fit.

And if that isn’t enough, you also get four new cars sent to your virtual garage: a
BMW Z4 GT3 , a Nissan Nismo GT-R GT3 , a Tesla Model S and a Chevrolet Corvette Stingray .

Gran Turismo 6 is a big deal to anyone who has ever played the video game racing franchise. It’s been that way since we fell in love with the first one and it’ll be that way until the game’s developers decide to finally hang up its proverbial boots.

That being said, we’re all interested to see the technology behind the development of a game like Gran Turismo 6. Seemingly acquiescing to our needs, Polyphony Digital released a new video behind the development of the game, giving us a never-before-seen look at the preparation and time needed to ensure that we see a game that’s never before seen in the annals of car racing video games.

Don’t be surprised to see the word "new" pop up multiple times during the video. Chances are, Polyphony intended for it to appear there because a whole lot about the game really is new.

Pretty much everything, really, which is to say that we’re expecting, as always, to be blown away once we get our hands on the game when it hits shelves on November 28th.

The recent E3 games conference held in Los Angeles, California this year gave us a good look at some of the upcoming racing video games that are all in the pipeline.

We’ve already seen previews of Gran Turismo 6, Forza 5, and even Need for Speed: Rivals. But there’s still one more game that’s looking to turn some heads.

This one comes Ubisoft and it’s called "The Crew.” If you watch the dedicated preview trailer of the game, you’d think that you were watching the first Fast & Furious movie again. But instead of the old Honda S2000’s they used in the movie, you get the treat of being behind the wheel of a heavily-modified Chevrolet Camaro .

The Crew has been classified as an open-world car action game, which means that there’s probably a strong reliance on online-play wherein you gather up your own outlaw crew with the objective of doing a multitude of law-breaking jobs.

Combine the detailed car customization program with the chance to play your own Fast and Furious storyline, and you have a game that definitely caught our attention.
