News The TeamVVV Podcast Episode 20: 15 years of Xbox, DriveClub & more

Welcome to another installment of the TeamVVV Podcast for all your weekly racing game rambles.

This week we look back at 15 years of Xbox, a console best remembered for catching fire and faulty disc drives. I jest: it was a revolutionary step for Microsoft. Their first foray into the console market kickstarted online console gaming with Xbox Live and abolished the use of memory cards thanks to its built-in hard drive. It also spawned several racing game IPs such as Forza Motorsport and Project Gotham Racing which we reflect on.

We then have a general discussion about what we've been playing lately: Kevin has been discovering DriveClub's new urban tracks as part of its final update, Ed has been sliding Porsches in Assetto Corsa and I've been enjoying some biking action in Ride 2. 

In the news, we discuss Assetto Corsa's upcoming private lobbies coming to consoles, along with the news of a new Daytona USA arcade game and the surprise European release of NASCAR Heat Evolution
