Gran Turismo Is Finally Making A Return After A 5 Year Hiatus
Sorry Folks, Gran Turismo 7 For the PS5 Isn’t Coming Out Anytime Soon
Those looking for Gran Turismo 7 thrills will have to suit up with patience because the game will not hit the stores earlier than 2022. The news via an interview with PlayStation boss Jim Ryan, who had a chat with GQ about PS5 stock and Sony’s plans for 2021 in general.

The video game console will also arrive with a handful of new games, including the highly anticipated Gran Turismo 7. There’s no official release date yet, but the game was teased during the PS5 presentation, and it looks exciting, to say the least.
The Fastest Cars of Grand Theft Auto V
The virtual world of Grand Theft Auto V is home to a lawless world where reckless driving, stealing, and outright killing often go unpunished. Such a world demands all kinds of spoils, and in the case of exotic cars, there’s no shortage of them in GTA V.
The fictional version of Los Angeles is where the rich come to play, and there are enough high-powered performance cars throughout the game to drive without conscience. With so many of these vehicles all over the city, it begs the question: which one is the fastest of them all? Well, this list of the fastest cars in GTA V should shed some light on the cars that you probably should be looking for when you’re trying to get away from the po-pos.
Dirt 5 Has Been Announced With Cross-Gen Capability
The Dirt video game racing franchise traces its roots to 1998 with the release of Colin McRae Rally. There have been 13 different game titles since, and now, the franchise is all set to launch Dirt 5, the 14th title in the franchise. Dirt 5 arrives just three years after Dirt 4 with an unprecedented level of improvement that should put smiles on the faces of long-time fans of the franchise. Once Dirt 5 arrives in October 2020, it will be available for current-generation gaming systems, including the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The game will also be available on next-generation platforms — the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X — sometime in 2021.
SnowRunner First Impresions – Making You The God of Trucking
SnowRunner, the long-awaited squeal to MudRunner, has finally launched, and I have to admit that I’m quite impressed with Saber Interactive has crammed into a game that could have been relatively boring. Going into the game for the first time, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Is it a trucking game or an off-road game? Just how realistic can the terrain management and driving dynamics be? Well, once the game downloaded, I found answers to my questions right away and a whole lot more. This is my first impression of the game and my reasoning behind saying, “you should definitely check it out for yourself.
Best PS4 Racing Games
Video games have become so intrinsically part of our lives that not a day goes by without us subconsciously playing something, whether it’s on our smartphones, tablets, or other hand-held devices. Gaming consoles, in particular, are the best ones to have if you want the full gaming experience, especially when it comes to car racing games.
This is where the Sony PlayStation 4 comes in. It’s arguably the best gaming console in the market today and there’s no shortage of car racing games available to play on PS4. From realistic racing simulators to story-driven, open-world games, you can get your fill of every type of car racing game that you can get your hands on. Obviously, some games are better than others in a variety of ways. To help ease your burden, we’ve picked out the 10 best PS4 racing games that are currently available on the market. There’s enough variety in this list to satisfy your discerning car racing game urges.
WRC 8 First Impressions and Gameplay
Bigben Interactive has been hard at work bringing WRC 8 to life, and we were lucky enough to get an early look at the game before it actually launches. How does it compare to other car games? Has Bigben and developer, Kylotonn, held true to the promise of improved graphics, physics, and overall gameplay? What about the redesigned career mode? Well, we’re here to tell you that WRC 8 is a huge departure from the last game, and I mean that in a good way. With that said, let’s take our first good look into WRC 8.
Grand Theft Auto VI: What We Know so Far
Whenever there is news of an upcoming Grand Theft Auto game it is BIG news. The current GTA game has so far grossed $6-billion, which is more than any blockbuster movie in history and it’s still being bought today, nearly six years after it was released. Now we know there is a new installment in the works, GTA IV, and this is what we know about it so far.
It’s likely going to feature a multiple city setup that will see the characters travel from one city to another via airplane. Seamless integration of all platforms is also one of the rumors - you’ll essentially even be able to play the game with the best possible graphics settings on your smartphone via streaming and play with people connecting through different platforms. GTA IV will have several main characters which the player will be able to cycle through to advance the story, however there is a chance that one of these characters is a cop or female... or maybe even both.
This and plenty more will be analyzed below in this frenzied quest to uncover as much about the next GTA as possible, a quest that was sparked back in March of 2018 when the YouTube channel “The Know” uploaded a video containing several bits of information about the upcoming Rockstar Games title. Back then the big news was the possible return of the series to a familiar and fan-favorite location.
WRC 8 Career Mode Is Cooler and More Challenging Than Ever
There’s been a lot of hype around the WRC franchise and that’s bound to get a lot hotter since the new WRC 8 game is set for a debut in September. When it hits the shelves (physical and digital), WRC 8 will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. So Bigben Games, the developer, is not letting anyone miss out on WRC 8. Moreover, the game is set to introduce a couple of changes and perhaps the most significant is a revamped Career Mode that will shape your evolution as a rally driver but also challenge your decision-making and team management skills. Sounds exciting, right? That’s because it is. Here’s what the new Career Mode is all about.
Dirt Rally 2.0 might be the best hardcore rally simulation game ever
Codemasters decided to give its popular but ultimately arcade style Dirt series a much more simulation-oriented spin when it launched the first Dirt Rally game in late 2015. Now, a sequel to that first Dirt simulation has been released, called Dirt Rally 2.0, and it seems to have impressed many high profile gaming outlets, as well as a series of driving game loving YouTubers. Some even say it could be the best rally game ever, finally surpassing a game that dates back to 2004 (and many avid rally sim fans still swear by it to this day). I am, of course, talking about Richard Burns Rally (RBR), a game that at the time of its launch was considered ahead of its time in many areas.
If You Can’t Get Enough of The Grand Tour, There’s Now a Game That Can Scratch your Itch
The third season of The Grand Tour is scheduled to drop on January 18, but for those who can’t wait to get their annual fixes of Jeremy Clarkson and the gang, you can get an early fix courtesy of The Grand Tour Game. Yes, folks, the show has parlayed its popularity into the virtual world of video games. The Grand Tour Game arrives for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on January 15. That’s three days before the third season drops on Amazon Prime. That’s enough time to prep yourselves for what is expected to be another rollicking season of fun and mishaps from our always charismatic, if not controversial, hosts.
Is Ride 3 the Best Motorbike Simulator Game Ever?
Ride 3 is the third installment in the Ride series and one that adds more bikes, more tracks, more customization, more performance upgrades and, well, just more of everything compared to Ride 2. The developer calls the game “the most complete digital motorbike encyclopedia” pointing to the total number of models available - no fewer than 230 from 30 different manufacturers (of which over 70 are completely new to the series, not reused from previous Ride titles).
Apparently, Gran Turismo Sport Sucks
How unfair and cruel this world is… Gran Turismo Sport is the biggest letdown since Bill Clinton got some dome in the oval office. Seriously, this game flat out sucks. Sure, the graphics are good, but you would have thought that game makers would have learned from the Need for Speed reboot – no matter how badly you want it to work, strictly online car games aren’t going to happen. We don’t like them. In fact, we hate them. It’s annoying. Sure, maybe we’ll play online and race some folks on occasion, but we want a legitimate campaign, especially for a racing SIMULATOR not just some random driving\car game. It just doesn’t make sense. The guys over at Polyphony Digital should have known better, but oh no, you had to go and slaughter one of the best and most legendary titles out there. And to think, I went out and bought a PS4 for this piece of crap.
Okay, so that was a bit of a rant, but I mean, come on… The hype was real…. The feeling we got when we saw the trailers was real…. Now, we know it was all for nothing. Such a letdown and now the Gran Turismo name will be forever slandered because of this crap. Con artistry at its best – get us all hyped up, then deliver us some online-based game that is just embarrassing. There’s no car customization, VR mode doesn’t even give you points and is only you against one other car --- JUST ONE --- and the “Campaign Mode” is just your training and license tests that you have to take to race online, which you probably don’t want to do anyway.
Sony Interactive should be embarrassed, Polyphony Digital should be embarrassed, and Sony should be begging other platforms to take on Gran Turismo Sport as well because this game is going to do nothing for that exclusive games list the execs rub their nipples to every night. Don’t want to take my word for it, check out my screenshots of the Amazon reviews below, then go look at them all for yourself. Don’t waste your money.
Finally! Gran Turismo Sport is Upon Us: Videos, Car Lists, and More!!
Microsoft Xbox has the Forza franchise, and Sony PlayStation has the Gran Turismo franchise, both of which sit at the top of the racing sim hierarchy of their respective platforms. Well, this week, an all-new Gran Turismo is finally about to hit PlayStation consoles, and it’s quite possibly the best Gran Turismo game to come out of the title’s 20-year run. And, that’s saying a lot as the game has done pretty well in living up to its “the real driving simulator” slogan. Over the years the game has gotten more realistic and downright sexy as far as graphics and car availability goes, but it still never took into account things like safety – it’s kind of hard to be concerned with driver safety when you’re sitting behind a TV driving energy drinks and eating chips, am I right? – but this time around, the company developing the game (Polyphony Digital) seems to be filling in the games that Sony Interactive Entertainment and Arsys Software left over the years.
With that said, it’s been a long time coming, and I’m just as excited for this game to hit shelves as I was Forza 7 and the Horizons sub-franchise. So far, Sony has been nice enough to release a limited trial of the game – it seems almost record-breaking as it attracted more than 1 million downloads – and a few videos that include the release date trailer, the gameplay trailer, a trailer for Interlagos Circuit, a tribute video for 20 years of GT, and a video to showcase the cars that have been announced so far. Speaking of cars, we’ve got the updated list (as of October 4th) in place for you below, along with links back to all of the reviews for each real-life model we have on hand. On top of that, we’ve got images of as many cars from Sport that we could get our hands on to go with all of the aforementioned videos. So, what are you waiting for, click the “continue reading” button and get ready for the game to launch!!!
Christmas Comes Early As Sony Releases Gran Turismo Sport-Themed Playstation 4 Console
As if getting excited over the upcoming release of Gran Turismo Sport isn’t enough for gamers, Sony and Polyphony Digital just upped the ante after announcing a new limited edition Gran Turismo Sport Playstation 4 console. Turns out, this new console is even more reason for gamers to start counting the days to October 18, the date Sony stamped as the official release of both the special edition console and the game itself.
Befitting its special edition status, the Gran Turismo Sport PS4 Console is going to be offered with some pretty impressive specs. For starters, it’s going to be based on the latest Slim 1TB version of the PS4. It’ll also feature unique cosmetic features, none more prominent than the silver faceplate that bears the Gran Turismo logo. Even the matching Dualshock 4 wireless controller will be finished in silver, making it the only limited edition PS4 console that will proudly carry these colors. Those who end up buying the console will also receive a special Day-1 edition of the game, which itself comes with in-game credits amounting to $250,000 on top of some livery sticker packs, a chrome racing helmet, and 60 PS4 avatars. Those who aren’t sold on buying the console itself do have the option of only buying the limited edition controller, which is expected to be bundled with a standard edition of the game and a Grand Turismo-branded touch pad.
About the only downside to the special edition console is availability, at least as far as U.S. customers are concerned. Though pricing details have not been announced, Sony has announced that the console will be available in the U.K., Europe, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. There’s no word yet from Sony on whether the console will hit our shores, but until it says it does, work on the assumption that we’ll be on the outside looking in as far as this special edition GTS-themed PS4 console is concerned.
Circle Your Calendars! Gran Turismo Sport Drops October 17
The latest and presumably greatest version of the Gran Turismo video game racing franchise now has an official release date. Barring yet another delay, Gran Turismo Sport will find its way into hands of video gamers in the U.S. on Tuesday, October 17, 2017. European gamers will have to wait until the 18th, while Japanese gamers will have to wait another day for the game to arrive in their region on the 19th. In any event, the new release date now appears to be set in stone after numerous delays spanning almost a year, with plenty of Gran Turismo fans turning sour on the franchise.
The October 17 release date appears to be for realsies now. It couldn’t have come at a more appropriate time, too, considering the game’s chief rival, Microsoft’s Forza Motorsport 7 will be released two weeks earlier on October 3, 2017. It’s still unclear as to why the game has been mired in development after having an initial release date of November 2016. That said, none of that matters now because, according to Polyphony Digital president Kazunori Yamauchi, the game is “entering the final stages of polishing” ahead of the October 2017 launch date. All’s well that ends well in this regard. Gran Turismo Sport is finally arriving this October, and to get you excited for its coming release, check out the latest trailer for one of the year’s most highly-anticipated video games.

Next Need for Speed Trailer Released; BMW M5 Face Exposed
Just a couple of weeks ago, we brought you the news about a new installment to the Need for Speed franchise that promised better police chases, an offline mode, and even daytime gameplay. More importantly, we’ll actually be able to pause the game for the first time since its reboot – that in itself is enough to pop champagne bottles and make it rain, right? Well, now we’re getting a look at the first official trailer and, needless to say, there are a few surprises. As promised, it does look like there are daytime gameplay and wicked police chases, but it also looks like it’s leaning a bit toward a
type storyline. The new game is being called “Need for Speed: Payback” and is apparently about building the perfect ride and “playing out an action driving fantasy.”
The game will be released on November 10, 2017, and those who preorder will receive the platinum car pack that includes a 2008 Nissan 350Z, 1967 Chevy Camaro SS, 1969 Dodge Charger R/T, 2016 Ford F-150 Raptor, and a 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport. But, this isn’t the only surprise that comes along with the announcement of the latest NFS game. The trailer gives us a quick but definite glimpse at the upcoming BMW M5. We only get to see the face for just a second, but it’s enough to tease us that much more.
