Konami has a new PSN title called GTi Club+. It's based off the 1996 arcade game that, perhaps, you might remember (read: we don't). But hey, if you do remember this racing title, then the following statement about the game boasting "all-new HD visuals and widely expanded gameplay elements" might hold a lot more meaning.
http://www.ps3fanboy...ub/988018/full/

For the tech savvy who like numbers, the game runs at 720p at 60fps and also support 5.1 sound with a remix of the original arcade's music by Atjazz. It also supports the PlayStation Eye, allowing users to keep watch over online opponents during play. Free Run, Arcade, and Bomb Tag are several of the modes mentioned in this new release. The game is set for release this November (for Europe at least).

Mpre support for the PS Eye is badly needed, so I am looking forward to it. Anyone ever play the arcade version?

Konami has revealed that GTI Club + will be released on December 4th via PlayStation Network.


GTI Club + is the remake to the 1996 arcade classic that had players driving manically around Cote D’Azur in Mini Coopers and Renault 5 Turbos. The remake features revamped HD visuals, as well as additional cars, modes and PlayStation Eye support.

Perhaps more excitingly, it’s in development by Sumo Digital, most famous for their Xbox conversion of OutRun 2, so it’s bound to be a cracker.


GTI Club + will set you back £9.99 when it launches in just over four weeks time.

Tried out the demo and it definitely feels like a mid-90's arcade racer. Seems like a $5 game to me, though $10 seems like the typical price for PSN games.

This is coming out tomorrow? Just Europe or is it coming to the North American PSN, as well?

I think Europe will get the game first. It will be $10 at the cheapest, maybe even $15 based on all that it has (online play, trophies, leaderboards, etc.).

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced that GTI Club+, the classic arcade-style racing game originally released by Konami in 1996, is now available for download on the PlayStation®Network, the digital media delivery service for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system. With spectacular HD graphics, GTI Club+ enables players to compete online with up to eight friends in either free-for-all events or team play.

In GTI Club+, players race through the tight city streets and winding mountain roads of France's Ville De Circo with an elite collection of high performance European hatchbacks, such as the Mini Cooper and Volkswagen Golf. The easy pick-up-and-play racing game allows beginners and experienced veterans alike to explore the open city for the most efficient routes between checkpoints, race each other to the top of the worldwide leaderboards, or partake in the fast-paced game of Bombtag, a free-for-all-mode where players play hot potato with explosives.

GTI Club+ takes full advantage of the PLAYSTATION®3 system, utilizing the DUALSHOCK®3 wireless controller to create vibrations when cars race over bumps in the road, as well as provide motion controlled steering. As an added bonus, gamers can take pictures using the PLAYSTATION®Eye and distribute them to other gamers during crucial racing moments such as overtaking, crashing and ramming.

Seems that this will be out today according to the press release I got today? No pricing or other info, so you will probably have to wait until the update today.

Ugh. I just played the demo and thought it was horrible. The controls were very stiff, and hearing the "EXTRA TIME" and "BEHIND YOU!" announcer every few seconds was annoying as hell.

Also, I found this video review of the game on YouTube. This english dude's accent is great!

So...I can't recommend this game at all. As far as I can tell there is only one course. The only way to had any type of varying gameplay is by changing the difficulty which only opens up a few short cuts and adds traffic.

I have attempted to play some online races but still have not raced. It always times out.

I'd reccomend doing a gameshare to get it for $2 is you absolutely must have this.
