Video: Race the Sun Coming to PS3, PS4, PS Vita This Summer

50°
23w ago - Flippfly Co-founder Forest San Filippo announced that Race the Sun is coming to PS3, PS4 and PS Vita this Summer alongside a video of it in action below.

To quote: There's just something about going fast. The desire for speed seems to be ingrained in our very nature. Race the Sun is our attempt to distill that desire into its basic form - to strip away all pretense and let players experience pure, brutal speed. Building a game with this goal in mind took a lot of trial, error, and some new ideas.

The Goals

When we first played the prototype that would become Race the Sun, we felt like we had something special. Every time one of us would crash, we'd say "Just one more run. I know I can do better." It felt like we were playing a classic arcade game designed to suck you in.

After quite a bit of discussion and thought, we decided on some specific goals for Race the Sun. It had to be fast, fun, and challenging. We knew that some of the fastest games out there were encumbered by complex rules and controls - and we really wanted our game to be fun right from the start. The mantra "easy to learn, hard to master" was adopted in lieu of design documents, and we got to work.

Video: Driveclub at Gamescom 2013: The Social Network of Racers

50°
52w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Justin Massongill posted up a video today from Gamescom 2013 showcasing Driveclub, dubbed the social network of racers below.

To quote: Guten tag from Gamescom! I hope you got a chance to see yesterday's press conference, where we saw a glut of new games announced (and finally found out when we can get our own PS4s!).

Sid and I are in Germany, tracking down new info for the latest games. Yesterday, I sat in on a presentation by Col Rodgers, the game director on PS4's upcoming launch exclusive, Driveclub.

He went into detail about Driveclub's social features, the PS Plus Edition of the game, and showed us how Remote Play on PS Vita works.

Rodgers described Driveclub as the "social network for racing games," and this is exemplified by the game's Challenge system. If you feel especially confident about a run on a certain track, with a certain car, even at a certain time of day, you can issue a challenge to your club, sending a notification to their PS4s or to their mobile phones (courtesy of the Driveclub Mobile app).

As they play and try to beat your challenge, they'll rack up points for the club.

Things get interesting when you elect to challenge your other friends, who might not be part of your club. If...
