Footage of the new Outrun videogame for X Box Live
When the original Outrun hit the arcades in 1986 it revolutionized racing videogames. While most games only offered a bird’s eye view, Outrun put the player in the driver’s seat. The game featured a perfect blend of driving skill and videogame fun. The goal was not to clock fastest time around a circuit, but cruise the highway at triple digit speeds while your girlfriend’s golden locks trailing behind.
Sega has just come up with their newest version of the classic racing game for X Box Live, Outrun Arcade Online allows up to six players to race in ten new and classic Ferrari’s around 15 different courses. Unfortunately for PS3 owners, it seems that Microsoft has struck an exclusivity deal, for now.
