Speaking to Edge, Codemasters senior executive producer Clive Moody has given his two cents regarding the PlayStation 4 and what the future holds for racing games. Despite the obvious improvements to visual fidelity that come with new hardware, "for us it's the gameplay, that's where we're wanting to focus and push hard, see how we can harness that extra grunt of the new hardware to spruce up the genre," he told the outlet.

"It's not exclusive to racing games -- very often it takes a shift in hardware to cause new innovation to take place. You’ll see it more and more as people get at home with the new hardware across every genre." He adds that the console's "architecture is a little easier to get our heads around," meaning "it's going to be easier to get results."

Speaking specifically about racing titles, Moody believes "connectivity is definitely part of the future" for the genre and that "Social and connected is a very big push and something a lot of developers have realized over the past few years." At the same time, however, "For a lot of people it's still going to be about the solo experience, the single-player, and they’re not necessarily interested in sharing with their mates -- it's personal to them -- and they want to keep it that way." You know, I like the way this guy thinks.

Driveclub's PS+ Edition having issues, delayed a bit

Driveclub's PlayStation Plus concept has been hyped up for quite some time. The idea of getting a piece of retail game at launch, even if it's just a slice, is a pretty sweet deal for Plus owners. But it appears as if there a...more

Link: Open letter to Microsoft, Turn 10, Playground Games on DLC

Forza Horizon 2? Pretty damned good, right? Having to buy a car pack to get the most desired DLC car? Not so good. I have strong feelings of my own on that and other DLC topics surrounding the Forza franchise, but I can save ...more
