With Microsoft and Sony battling it out as always for a bigger share of the games-console market, both are gambling on the success of new car-related games.
In conjunction with the release of the Xbox One, Microsoft unveiled Forza Motorsport, whilst the makers of the PS4 are banking on their new game Drive Club. But is having two games to choose from a bonus for game players? The probable answer is yes, as the two games bring different concepts to the market.
Forza Motorsport 5 is the latest edition of the series that has been highly rated for over a decade. It provides players with an opportunity to drive a collection of great cars, which would be the envy of any collector, around a variety of great tracks, whilst the Xbox One combines improved power and performance with stunning realism and a smarter and faster multi-player capacity.
Meanwhile, whilst PlayStation enthusiasts also get the opportunity to be in control of great cars and have the opportunity to drive them round great tracks, Sony have decided to introduce the idea of teamwork in Drive Club. Gamers must first pledge their allegiance, and then drive as a team to maximise their chance of winning. However, there are lots of chances to test your skills in individual Face-off challenges such as The Drift, S-bend speed tests and cornering efficiency, after which bonuses will be awarded to the best driver.
With the two games offering a different driving experience, it’s possible both will hit the jackpot.
