The constant back and forth between Sony and Turn 10 Studios figures to have no let-up now until the release of their respective video game franchises, Gran Turismo 6 and Forza 5.

Sony scored a huge coup with the recent announcement that it had tied up with numerous automakers for its Vision Turismo feature for GT6. In response, Turn 10 announced that it had added Laguna Seca and Spa Francorchamps as part of its new content.

Ok, it’s not exactly going to blow up interest for the game the way Vision Turismo did but it shouldn’t also be underestimated given the rash of new technology and gameplay features that the Xbox One is expected to come in.

So don’t sleep on this announcement because we all know that the two of the toughest race tracks to play in any video game are Laguna Seca and Spa. Now that both tracks have been confirmed to be a part of Forza 5, anybody who plays the franchise will understand the challenges that come in winning races on those two venues.

He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
