A limited-run version of the Nissan Juke, dubbed the GT Sport PlayStation, has just been introduced to the Spanish and Portuguese markets.

Created to celebrate Gran Turismo Sport on PlayStation, the special-edition Juke will be limited to just 500 units and be available in either Ultramarine Blue or Pearl White.

To ensure that the Juke GT Sport PlayStation stands out from a run-of-the-mill Juke, the Japanese automaker has fitted a set of Tokyo Black 18-inch wheels, PlayStation graphics, custom badging, faux carbon fiber door sill protectors, Gran Turismo Sport floor mats, and a shark fin antenna.

And yes, buyers will also receive a PlayStation 4 console and a copy of the video game.

Interestingly, the Nissan Juke isn’t actually available in the game. In fact, the only Nissans in the game are different versions of the GT-R and the Concept 2020 Vision Gran Turismo.

Gamer Recreats Ken Block’s Climbkana On Grand Theft Auto V 10

Posted by Brad Anderson in Games, Gymkhana, Ken Block, video on 11 10th, 2017


Ken Block’s Climbkhana is arguably the most audacious video in the thrilling Gymkhana series but that hasn’t stopped one dedicated gamer from replicating the video on Grand Theft Auto V.

As we know, Grand Theft Auto V doesn’t feature any vehicles which you can purchase in real-life. However, there are a number of cars which are blatant copies of popular vehicles, including the Ford Mustang.

Consequently, the gamer grabbed the closest thing to a 1965 Mustang and began the modifications, replicating the look of the Hoonicorn V2 to an extraordinary extent. In fact, the car even includes the huge turbochargers sticking out of the hood and adopts a familiar livery.

Perhaps even more incredible than the accuracy of the car, however, is how the gamer has replicated the various camera angles from Climbkana, even mimicking some of the most mind-blowing stunts. Included in these is Ken Block’s out-of-this-world slide to the edge of the road as he was climbing up Pikes Peak.

AM General Suing Call Of Duty Developers Over HMMWV Usage 8

Posted by Michael Gauthier in Games, HUMMER, Military Vehicles, Reports on 11 8th, 2017


Most people might not know what a High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle is but if you asked them about a HUMVEE or HMMWV, they’ll probably understand.

The vehicle is one of the most iconic military machines in the world and it is one of AM General’s best known products. As a result, the company is pretty protective of the vehicle and recently filed a lawsuit against Activision Blizzard Inc for incorporating its trademarks into various video games without permission.

According to Reuters, AM General is upset that HMMWVs are prominently featured in video games such as the Call of Duty series as well as toys and books that Activision licenses out to third parties. The success of the series shouldn’t be underestimated as Call of Duty became the world’s largest console franchise in 2016 and sales topped 250 million units last year which resulted in more than $15 billion in revenue.

The automaker says these profits come at the “expense of AM General and consumers who are deceived into believing that AM General licenses the games or is somehow connected with or involved in the creation of the games.” AM General has been in discussions with Activision for over a year but decided to go the legal route after the talks failed to result in a settlement.

The lawsuit is asking for compensatory, punitive, and triple damages. It will be heard in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

New Forza 7 Car Pack Features Giulia QV, Abarth 124 Spider, Others 7

Forza Motorsport 7 is making a brand new car pack available to gamers, one featuring a wide variety of vehicles across multiple categories.

From off-roaders to race cars and more, this ‘Samsung QLED TV’ car pack looks like it should deliver some very worthy additions to anybody’s in-game garage.

We’re talking a 1957 Maserati race car, a 2017 Abarth 124 Spider, a 2015 Honda Ridgeline Baja Trophy truck, Nissan’s famous Bluebird Super Silhouette race car from 1984, Porsche’s 935/78 racer, the Toyota Land Cruiser Arctic Trucks AT37 and the 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio.

As you can see, there’s a strong racing theme here, with a lot of classics on hand – something for the Abarth 124 or the Giulia QV to aspire to, we reckon.

In total, there are seven new cars, three Italian brands, three Japanese brands and one from Germany. The new car pack is available to download now.

Need For Speed Payback Review Might Talk You Out Of Buying It 7
Nov
Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Games, Need for Speed, reviews, video on 11 7th, 2017


Even if you’re a fan of arcade racing and the Need for Speed franchise in general, this latest installment could still leave you frustrated with regards to multiple aspects of gameplay.

According to IGN, the 23-year old racing series from Electronic Arts has definitely seen better days, and while ‘Payback’ does fix a few issues with previous titles, it’s also taking away things like customizing your car easily and efficiently.

First, the positives. For example, it’s great that unlike with the previous NFS game, Payback actually lets you hit pause during single player mode. A simple fix to an issue that never should have existed.

Second, there’s no shortage of challenges you can take on with this game. From police pursuits to drag racing, it’s a more complex experience than what the previous title had to offer.

Unfortunately, that’s where the positives end, as the game really gets bashed in this review due to that customization issue, the linear pursuits, frantic AI, poor character dialogue and more.

In the end, it gets a poor rating, with the reviewer dubbing it ‘Mediocre’.

Forza 7 Says Porsche 911 GT2 RS And Lambo Centenario Are Dead Even 4

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in Drag-Racing, Forza, Games, Lamborghini, Lamborghini Centenario, porsche, Porsche 911 GT2, Porsche-911, video on 11 4th, 2017


Two of the most popular supercars in the world, the Lamborghini Centenario and the 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS couldn’t be more different.

On one hand, the GT2 RS is a rear-wheel drive and engined, with a twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat six unit, pumping out 700 PS (690 HP). The Centenario, on the other hand features, all-wheel drive and a 6.5-liter naturally aspirated V12 placed in the center that’s good for 770 PS (760 HP).

In a straight line, both cars will get from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds, although it’s the Centenario that will max out at 350 km/h (217 mph), as the GT2 RS will “only” do 340 km/h (211 mph).

If you want to talk differences, the price gap between the two is huge, since it’s doubtful that any GT2 RS will ever sell for $2 million.

Of course, we’d love a real life comparison, but what we have here is an interesting virtual drag race, courtesy of Forza 7. In the gaming it world, it would seem that they’re extremely well matched in a straight line.

2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS Drag Races Aventador SV In Forza 7 3

With the new 911 GT2 RS being one of the most eagerly anticipated cars out there, we’ll take any chance we can get at witnessing what it can do against a track-bred rival.

While performance-related results in Forza will always vary compared to the real world, this latest installment of the gaming franchise still has a lot to offer, especially to petrolheads itching to find out just what the GT2 RS is capable of.

Before we dive into the numbers, we should remind everybody that a straight-line drag race isn’t what these two supercars were built for. Still, with over 700 horses on each side, getting up to speed is a breeze.

The 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS is the most powerful road-legal 911 ever. Its twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat-six is good for 700 PS (690 HP), allowing for a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration time of just 2.8 seconds, the exact same as the more powerful 750 PS (740 HP) Aventador SV.

During this high-speed drag race courtesy of the Ericship111 YouTube channel, we see both cars crossing the line at roughly 200 mph (321 km/h). Care to guess who won? There were only 0.65 seconds between them.
