GT Spirit (by the makers of Test Drive unlimited)

Great news for racing fans (hopefully).Eden games (worked on games like NFS Porsche,V-Rally and TD Unlimited) announced a new racing sim,coming to Apple TV first (october) but to iOS a bit later.Looks great so far.

Take THIS RR3

edit:website says it's coming to ipad/iphone and android"in a few months"...ah well,i,was hoping it would be sooner.

Hope it is premium too. Except for the fantastic Horizon Chase I am still playing NFS Most Wanted and Ridge Racer. I am not at all at fuel/energy/service etc systems on racers so i am waiting curiously for the model here, because from what we have see till now the game seems to rock in lot of aspects! Even after the huge success of RR3 and A8 I don't give up my hopes 😊

But at least A8 is imo a good example of doing F2P right.I've sunk countless of hours into it and it never bothered me with energy timers or heavy grinding nor pop up ads (okay pop ups for ingame stuff...i give you that )

Unless you want to collect most/all cars or something like this.THAT would gonna be expensive and the (real money)prices for some cars are ridiculous of course.

But let's don't start about RR3...i don't want to even support such a greedy business model.I tried it 2-3 times but timers for everything...EA can take their racer and stick it where the sun never shines

Edengames website is cluttered with"for the love of cars"sentences...but i really hope they have some love for games as well

I really enjoy A8 and spent tens of hours. My only down was that I couldn't collect some of the later cars (at least my favorites which were extremely expensive. Anyway finger crossed this one will be pure premium. Cannot wait for the Apple TV launch or some more infos, screens and content from the devs.

I will be watching this game with great interest. It does depend a lot on the business model they choose though and the faceplate of course. Hoping for a premium fame that they charge you for add on packs / updates after.

Should get to see all this later this month then.

You haven't played it in a while then...
I've deleted it from my device the moment I randomly got VIDEO ads in the main menu... like, what the heck! O.o

iPhone 4 -> Galaxy S4 -> OnePlus One -> iPhone 6 Plus 128GB Space Gray... it's good to be back!

oh really?You are right,haven't played it for a while.And you can't stop the videos yourself?Another good example what happened when shareholder are more important than the people who actually PLAY the games.Asphalt was the last Gameloft game that kept my attention for quite a while.Although I'm still surprised that it didn't turn into unplayable,timer ridden crap (like dungeon hunter) yet.RIP Asphalt...
