Yeah it's for future TEST DRIVE titles, the previous releases and the TDU games are still Atari's. I don't think there's nothing stopping Bigben from putting in O'ahu or Ibiza either unless Atari have stipulated that or something? It will have to be from scratch though if they do.

#41I'm a bit mental.
welldone, it seems to be a new game, nothing same than the original Eden game/Atari then, only the name was bought in these conditions if we interpret it well
so if someone buy the old Eden/Atari concept/license, it will can't be named "Test Drive Unlimited" then, it seems a strange business
Exactly. I believe they could call their new game Test Drive Unlimited 3 but not make it out to be a reboot like NFS did by using the Most Wanted title again for example.I'm a bit mental.
#44Listen to Mike, I'm definitely not the most super out of all the non-super moderators, just check the username! (;
That is the thing though between all of those that have come: they all do things better and worse than one another and none have been able to gel it all together.
-- TDU had the experiencing the rich life done well
-- Midnight Club LA had impressive customisation (I want to change the profile and brand of my tyres again damnit!)
-- NFS has the cool police chases
-- TDU 2 added weather and functioning roofs
-- Forza Horizon brought on some stunning visuals, decent handling and nice sounds
Now if only we could get the sum of all of those parts into one game eh?I'm a bit mental.
I think that no game could catch up with TDU it's because, the latter in its time, offered something the others didn't, or offered in a way we haven't experienced before.
- Did we have open world games? Yes, every single NFS since UG2 was. Were they based situated in real locations? Not that I can remember (At least until FH came)
- Did we have street racing? Yes, pretty much every NFS since NFS1
- Did we have a big selection of luxury cars ? Yes, Gran Turismo and Forza
- Did all the cars had cockpits modelled? Not in Gran Turismo, afaik
- Could we change clothes, do missions, transport misterious packages, super models or exclusive cars? Nope, maybe in GTA.
And I could go on with many more, but as Lookie said, TDU actually let you feel like the car was yours and live like a rich guy who doesn't have to worry about money. You could go to the dealer, spec your car, choose rims, choose colors and drive off, straight to your house. And oh, the GPS in the infotainment system, I'm bored of reading "///M" or "AMG" or "Jaguar" or whatever it is, why can't we have this today? Okay, TDU didn't have digital tacho/speedo...
Two of the things I really liked about TDU was how the rear view in the cars was the rear view. It still makes me laugh thinking how looking behind you in the Maserati MC12 shows you nothing but a carbon fibre backing. And second was the way you could look around the interior of the cars even so much as being able to look up the sky or glance through the sunroof of many vehicles. One of a handful of games where if you hear a plane above, you can actually look up at it.
I bet a number of you when doing laps round the race track tilted your view to see the plane taking off at the airport at some point.
I enjoy little details like that.I'm a bit mental.
I should dump some TDU pics.
It really annoys me in Forza for example, You have all that forzavista crap, and then You still cant drive the Agera or Zonda without the roof, even though its already there modeled in Vista, and what Diablo said about rearwiev, if Im driving R8 V10 I wan't to see that damn V10 everytime I look behind Me.
But of course evertime they announce new car game its " We want to turn car entusiasts into gamers, and gamers into car entusiasts"
and then they'll give us half done game like The Crew, with bad handling, and lazily detailed car models, like seriously look at some of the cockpits in that game, some cars gauge clusters literally look like a low res sticker.
I mean come on theres pretty much no racing games these days, If they can really take their time, detail everything, perfect the handling, then Im pretty sure they'll make Us happy and probably their pockets as well, so its a win-win situation but I guess thats too much...

And the photomode wasn't too horrible when you'd zoom in, showing massive LOD degrading of the landscape.
Just remaster TDU, simple
