While I was at E3, I made it to an appointment I had with the publisher O-Games. They had SuperStars V8 Racing on deck and I managed to get some video of the game being played and an interview with Jerry Whitehead, the Senior PR Manager. The game is developed by Milestone and I am sure glad I was able to see SuperStars V8 Racing because by the time I was done with the interview, I was completely sold on buying the game when it comes out, purely based on what I saw while I was there at the booth.

The first thing I noticed when demoing the game was its pick-up and play mechanics. Just watching it being played also made me assure that me as whatever gamer I may be, can pick up the controller and race for a few minutes, or go headstrong for a full career mode if I was a hardcore racing fan. The game will feature top class production cars in the 3000cc to 7000cc range and will have up to 18 vehicles on track in every race. You can go head to head online against up to 7 other racers. Players can also switch modes into simulation mode for an even more realistic driving experience while racing in the best circuit tracks in the world.
The game is licensed by the Italian Championship Racing League and will carry a hefty amount of sponsors and car manufacturers including: BMW, Audi, Jaguar, Mercedes, Chrysler, Chevrolet, and Cadillac.
Heres my favorite part of the game: it's Cost. A game with such dynamic and in-depthness, all for only an MSRP of $19.99 and a release date of August 3, 2010. But dont take my word for it, watch the video above and you make the decision, I've already made mine.
