197w ago - Today Game Director Luca Ferrara at Milestone SRL has announced that Superstars V8 Racing is coming to PSN on October 26 alongside giveaway details, as follows:

Not long ago, our friends at O-Games announced here on the blog that [Register or Login to view links] would be launching in North America exclusively on PlayStation Network as a download with all of the trimmings of a retail game for only $19.99.

Today we're here to let you know that the date is officially set for October 26th - and we'd love to tell you more about our studio and the work we put into the project since its inception.

My name is Luca Ferrara, and I'm the Game Director on Superstars V8 Racing. As a developer, Milestone has been working in the racing genre for many, many years. Driving is our passion, and bringing our passion into the world of video games is our specialty.

Some of you might know us from other franchises on two wheels like Moto GP 07 and the SBK Superbike World Championship series. Others might recognize us from our days working on games like the Screamer series and Evolution GT.

While a large portion of our fans reside in Europe, we rarely get an opportunity to reach out to our fans in the US - so I'm happy to be here to tell...
 

Video: Superstars V8 Racing: Coming to the PlayStation Network

202w ago - O-Games General Manager Greg Lanz has posted up a video today spotlighting Superstars V8 Racing which is coming soon to Sony's PlayStation Network.

To quote: As the publisher for Superstars V8 Racing, we are excited to bring such a robust game to PlayStation Network.

Over the past few years we have watched the digital marketplace grow. As many publishers and developers launched digital products on the PSN platform, O-Games made a strategic decision to hold off until we had the perfect product.

Superstars V8 Racing is one of most robust, deep and graphically rich racing games on PSN, and at $19.99 it's going to be difficult for anyone to find a better bargain; Superstars V8 Racing is a full retail game packaged for PlayStation Network.

Dozens of official circuit tracks, head-to-head online play with up to seven other players, and big name brand cars make this a great racing game.





Why did we drop the retail disc, and go digital on the PSN?

A little over six months ago, we had aspirations to take Superstars V8 Racing to the retail channel. We took the title on tour to the major North American retailers and tried to find a market for the game.

The retailers really enjoyed the title, it...

218w ago - UFG Game Designer William Ho has shared a video today dubbed ModNation Racers PS3 - Your Racing Career Begins Now!

To quote: Today, I'm going to reveal some details about the single-player Career Mode in ModNation Racers.

You are Tag, a young graffiti artist turned kart racer who enters the Mod Racing Championship (MRC for short). Tag starts off as a rookie in the Home Tour.

As he wins races, he unlocks more rewards and qualifies for higher-level tours that take him to exotic races all over [Register or Login to view links]. Along the way, you're pitted against the MRC's Elite Racers. Each Elite has his or her unique visual style and driving style suited to their respective home tracks.





The Career Mode is both simple and deep. It's simple in that you can blaze your way to the top of the MRC rankings by placing third or better in most races. We also have "Big Show" races – the finales for each Tour – that require you to finish in first place to qualify for the next Tour. Racking up top finishes also gets you lots of unlocks. You'll win plenty of parts, stickers, bodies, buildings, props and more to use in your custom creations.

But for more dedicated racers, we've also added...

225w ago - United Front Games Designer Mat Thomas has made available a video today dunbbed 'Redesigning Kart Racing' and showcasing ModNation Racers for the PS3 entertainment system.

To quote: Mat from [Register or Login to view links] here to end your week on a high note with our latest trailer and a peek into some of the thought behind the sweet racing action we've built into ModNation Racers!

First and foremost when developing a racer, the key thing to outline is what the experience needs to be. As I have mentioned in my previous blog post, we worked through how we wanted the core driving experience to feel.

Many development team members here at United Front Games have worked on several different racing games. Our focus is quite simple - we wanted the handling to be tight and fun but allow the power of the PS3 to take kart handling to the next level with a more physical driving model.

While we appreciate the simple arcade handling, we soon understood that if we were going to deliver the best race experience with our Track Studio tools, then we had to give the player a deeper handling model.





Drive Well & Get BOOST

While we developed our core handling model we also realized we needed...
