Filed under: Toys/Games, UK, Racing For years now, video game makers (and their marketing teams, more than likely) have sought to amp up the excitement of their new releases with wild and lavish special edition packages. Our own Call of Duty Prestige Master, John Neff, is sure to remember the functional night vision goggles that shipped with CoD's Modern Warfare 2, and the radio-controlled "surveillance vehicle" that was packed in with Black Ops. The monstrous Halo franchise has offered special edition games in a Master Chief head and with a massive set of action figures, and, closer to home, our copy of Gran Turismo 5 came complete with a lovely 1:43 scale Nissan GT-R Spec V (and book... yawn).

That's right - buy a video game, get a racecar. At least that's how Codemasters is spinning it. In the attached press release, it claims that Grid 2: Mono Edition will set the Guinness World Record for "Most Expensive Video Game Commercial Available - Special Edition." Our request for a playable demo is in the mail, Codemasters.Continue reading Grid 2: Mono Edition is some kind of spendy video gameGrid 2: Mono Edition is some kind of spendy video game originally appeared on Autoblog on Sat, 25 May 2013 19:01:00 EST.

The film’s content notwithstanding, “Fast and Furious 6″ is part of a rather uneventful race this weekend as it coasts into first without a bump. The racing actioner earned $38.2 million Friday and is headed to a four-day haul of nearly $120 million, easily lapping its closest competitor “The Hangover Part III.” “Fast and Furious”...

One of the most common problems that annoyed early Xbox 360 adopters was the appearance of the “red ring of death,” a flashing red light on the console’s start button indicating that its hardware was essentially fried and would need to be sent to Microsoft to be replaced. But Microsoft Game Studios vice president Phil Spencer tells Edge that the company has learned its lessons and that the new Xbox One will not experience hardware failures on a mass scale like the Xbox 360 did. In particular, Spencer noted that Microsoft’s success rate on the more recently released Xbox 360 Slim was “very high” and said that the same team behind the Slim also built the Xbox One, so chances are very good that the
