GTI Club+ Comes To PSN (Yes, Today)


The news is coming in at breakneck speed (ouch… unintentional bad pun), more news about the impending PSN update. At this rate, I am going to be SO broke by the end of the day.

GTI Club+ is a retooling of one of my old school favorite arcade racers, the 1996 game GTI Club (gotta love the imaginative naming convention).

Catch the full press release inside.


Arcade-Style Racing Game Revs Up With High Definition Graphics for up to Eight Players Online
El Segundo, Calif. – Jan. 15, 2008 – 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.
