Pixel Junk Racers, a racing videogame similar to MicroMachines, will be offered for the Playstation Network in the last quarter of 2007, probably in November according to developer Q-Games. Even if it sports a minimalist look, the effort does not stop me from thinking about all these hours spent creating my own tracks made of plastic under the Christmas tree. Memories, memories.

Looks more like Turbo Sliders.
Properly gonna get it when it shows up on PSN.

I played the demo (us store) and its fun. But you need a really huge screen to play it, my 37" is too small for that kind of game.

Before I had any actual videogame systems, I had a little handheld mechanical game with gameplay like this (move along set tracks)...

Not really a complement.

Looks more similar to the old DOS favorite "Slicks 'n Slide" or the mentioned Turbo Sliders, both made by my countrymen.

Speaking of which, Remedy had a weapon-racing top-down racer called Death Rally which was pretty good stuff. They should convert that to XBLA/PSN

I agree, this makes me think of "Slicks n Slide" or maby a zoomed out version of Death Rally. Fun games both of them. Don't own a PS3 so I won't be playing this one though.

Can't say I was impressed by the demo, far better off just buying scalectrix

    GriftGFX @Moonwalker: How bad would TitanFall 2 sales have to be to offset the success of Battlefield... TitanFall 2 is an EA Partner's game... seems like a little bit of an overreaction. (23 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX I do get the sense that TitanFall 2 got very little marketing attention. They promoted the hell out of Battlefield. (2 Hours ago)
