So imagine what a new combat system could
Acclaim have revealed more details of the car modification system in their street life-style racer Juiced. They tell us there are approximately 7.2 trillion styling combinations. That's one hell of an approximation and we're not counting, but we'll take their word that there's a huge range of bits to fiddle about with.A whole range of performance classes are provided by the 47 cars included in Juiced. Thing is, everything costs money and you'll be fairly short of the green stuff when you kick

Considering that many of the original force powers remain intact,

Konami have announced the first details of a new racing title called Enthusia Professional Racing. The official blurb promises groundbreaking gameplay with lush graphics that provide an unprecedented racing experience.That's one hell of a claim considering that racing is the one genre that developers have really nailed (see Gran Turismo, Colin McRae, Project Gotham et al).

We'll be reporting on Eidos' new online racer Crash 'n' Burn when we get our hands on it shortly at E3. For now, content yourself with the game's debut trailer.Although the trailer is completely gameplay-less, it's a very cool FMV dip into racing mentalism, with two groups of cars - hundreds of vehicles strong - storming across the desert for an earth-shattering head-on collision.
