14w ago - Today Codemasters Community Manager Ben Walke has shared a GRID 2 video alongside a release date and some new gameplay details below.
To quote: Hello racing fans! It's been a busy few weeks for GRID 2. We've confirmed a 31st May release date in Europe, announced some pre-order bonuses and today I'm here to talk a little bit more about the game. So let's jump straight in...
Introducing: World Series Racing (WSR)
At Codemasters we love racing of every flavour, but professional motorsports has always been splintered into different disciplines and formulas around the world. One of the questions we've kicked around for years in the Studio has been simple - who is the greatest? Which driver from which series is the best?
In GRID 2, we're looking to answer that question with World Series Racing - WSR. It's a new motorsport series that starts from the grassroots and grows into a huge Prime Time competition.
Racers from different disciplines - street racers, drifters, track racers and more - all come together in one global series, with each driver moving in and out of their comfort zone. So who is the greatest? Join WSR in GRID 2 and find out...
Based on Bentley's hacking mini-games from Thieves in Time, it includes 60 totally new, controller-twisting missions to take on, tons of nifty Sly Cooper loot to collect, and cameos from the whole gang, all wrapped up in Bentley's signature arcade.
It's available now for either the PS3 or PS Vita, priced at just £1.59/€1.99. Purchasing either version of the game will allow you to download the game on the other platform at no additional cost. Take a look at the trailer here:
16w ago - Yesterday Sony teased with a PS4 / Orbis promotional video on their next-generation console, and today Edge-Online.com (linked above) has revealed some additional PlayStation 4 details as well.
Below is the scoop including purported PS4 launch dates, to quote: "Development sources with working knowledge of both next generation consoles have told us that PlayStation 4 will be more powerful than the next XBox, will ship with a redesigned controller and launch by the end of the year in Japan and the US. PlayStation 4's European launch will follow in early 2014.
Sony is set to reveal its next PlayStation on Wednesday February 20th at an event dubbed 'see the future'. Sony Computer Entertainment released a teaser video last night to announce the event. Below, our sources revealed what to expect from PlayStation 4.
Sources close to the hardware have revealed to us that PS4 will ship with a redesigned controller which is the same size as an existing DualShock but features a small touchpad in place of the existing Select, Start and PS buttons. The tech is based on Vita's rear touchpad, and is similarly responsive in use.
