    Well the king of racing games is due back and given the spectacular sequel to the original PGR there is a lot of hope regarding PGR4. Here is the latest, all comments are based on the new OXM issue.

    First scans, more to come when I can find them. (These are in-game work in progress shots according to Bizarre)



    It is the Enzo on this page, small but good.

    Looks and sounds absolutely awesome!

    I just hope you can smash your cars up this time. Every racing game seems to miss that "realistic" part to it

    That´s the "salt" when watching any racing. Like Eddie Griffin crashed that Ferrari.

    But what makes that look really good is the rain and the surroundings, if it was a track in a field it wouldnt have half the effect it does in a city. Looks good though.....another racing game to be added to the collection by the looks of it.

    The rain effect looks quality. I never did get around to getting PGR3. In fact I think I only played PGR1, class game that was :)

    You should get prg3, its a budget range game now and well worth it imo.

    By far the weakest game in the series.

    Great video though, would really love to see St Basil's and KGB remade in HDness.

    There's a video of the rain effect in PGR4 out, looks amazing. Sorry, Forza 2 will almost certainly be the better game, but come on guys. Get hiring these guys for your graphics department.

    Here ya go!

    Jack I posted that 5 days ago ;)

    PGR4 is a different beast to Forza, in my opinion you can't compare them.

    Bugger, I actually looked through the thread to see if it had been posted previously as well... I need new glasses, apologies.

    They are different beasts, granted, but when you're "in the mood" for a racing game, then they both involve racing and you're usually going to favour (the same) one over the other. If that makes sense.

    To me, Forza is a game you invest a lot of time in, so I can see myself going back to that over and over to try and develop my career (or even just work on the car), whereas I'll glance over the PGR4 box and think "well all you do in that is skid around corners".

    That's not to say it won't be a great game, but if you play in a world of virtual garages, auctions, parts etc. and then you go into a world where you're not "involved" in the same way, I know that I would find myself itching to put the Forza disc in again.

    But damn, those graphics will look beautiful on a HD television...

    Project Gotham Racing 4 latest

    Big, blurry tears are now welling in our eyes when we imagine everything that Project Gotham Racing 4 will bring this autumn. We think they could be tears of joy, but there are traces of fear behind these too and we’re not ashamed to admit it.

    Being PGR fans you’ll already appreciate how challenging the Nurburgring sets out to be. Probably you’re good enough to stay with the curves even when it rains, sure even when it pours. But try snow. Try thick, heavy, bad-ass blizzard kind of snow with gigantic flakes obscuring your view. This is what Bizarre Creations has forecast for PGR4 and yes you’ll still be required to power drift for those kudos points. We fear for your sanity we really do, controlling your back end won’t be easy – and we don’t just mean the car…

    Nurburgring is one of two newly announced circuits for PGR4, the other being Quebec. We already know St. Petersburg is in there too and altogether there will be 10 locations in PGR4, the remainder will be revealed in coming weeks.

    In the tantalizing long meanwhile Bizarre Creations has let slip a handful of motors old and new that we’ll be gunning for glory later this year. We’ve scribbled them down for you… well, sort of typed without looking (and still spelled everything right):

    '62 Ferrari 250 GTO

    '67 Toyota 2000GT

    '78 Lamborghini Countach LP400

    '98 Subaru Impreza 22B STi

    ‘04 BMW M5

    '07 Ruf RGT 997

    '07 Lotus GT3RR

    Hah, let’s see you survive Nurburgring in the snow in that ’78 Countach! We’ve more locations, vehicles and new features to announce soon for PGR4 so stay hot tuned.

    Agree with jack, think pgr4 will be a lot of fun (really enjoyed 3 when i bought it as a classic title a while ago), however i never really felt that i was "in" the game. Something ive always had with pes and the ml (atleast the first few months of the game) and im noticing the same type of thing happening with forza2. I havent been able to play it much since its release due to uni work but im still dying to play it every chance i get, just to get a new car, win a new comp, save up to buy myself an austin, etc. And i havent even gotton into the livery part yet as that will take up a lot of my time aswell.
    PGR4 looks really good and the added weather will add another level of enjoyment and challenge. It will be a pick-up-and-play game, im just wondering if ill be finished/bored with forza before it gets released as otherwise ill still want to continue forza. Ill probably get it anyway when it comes out.

    Bikes can't corner as fast though. Have faith in Bizarre, they know what they are doing.

    Bizarre Creations has divulged the final list of cities to be seen and recklessly raced through in the upcoming automotive extravaganza, Project Gotham Racing 4:

    Macau, China
    Las Vegas, USA
    London, England
    St. Petersburg, Russia
    Tokyo, Japan
    New York, USA
    Shanghai, China
    Quebec, Canada
    Nurburgring, Germany
    The sequel to the Xbox 360 launch title will also boast weather effects, motorcycles and a Michelin-sponsored test track, with some of the returning tracks from the previous game seeing adjustments to enhance the flow of racing and prevent pileups. They will also be presented at a different time of day, though this aspect itself will not be adjustable. Posting in the official Bizarre Creations forum, a staff member noted, "You won't see different times of day per city because this involves recreating all the textures again (one for day and one for night). Whilst this wasn't a problem for our dev team, it was a problem fitting all this data onto a single DVD."

    To counter this issue, however, Bizarre points to the game's varied lighting models: "For example, Macau is always in the daytime, but if you play it during a storm everything looks darker and more foreboding. If you play during a blizzard then things are slightly tinged blue and everything seems more frozen. Of course, playing this track in sunshine will make everything appear bright and yellowy."

    Expect to drive around a bright and yellowy Macau sometime in September (if the game's done, that is).
