With the release of the two big next-gen consoles looming they will need to rely on several new launch games, as it will be these that will no doubt persuade the indecisive which of the two they should go for. Many gamers would have already chosen because they are loyal to a particular brand, but not all of them feel that way.
Racing games are important to both Microsoft and Sony, although the latter does have two great racing video game launches compared to one for the former. The three games in question are Forza Motorsport 5, Driveclub and Gran Turismo 6.
We have five videos of these games for you below, which is actual gameplay footage for each game during the Russian trade show Igromir. The question we would like to know is, how do these new racing car games hold up on the PS4 and the Xbox One when compared to what is currently available on the PS3 and the Xbox 360?
It is clear nothing has changed with Forza and Gran Turismo because it is much the same as we have seen before. Forza has always concentrated more on the gameplay, whereas Gran Turismo puts more focus on the huge number of cars available to the player. Let us hope both new versions go that extra mile because Driveclub is there waiting to pounce, as it does look better at this moment in time?
A recent fans perspective suggests GT6 is better than GT5, but we should not expect next-gen visuals because it is too early. Driveclub is a gorgeous game and so could be the dark horse. Forza 5 is also showing promise. It is clear that all three brings something to the party, as such is not going to be an easy decision to make.
