Shift can beat ‘sterile Gran Turismo 5’ – EA

Patrick Soderlund, a senior vice-president at EA, spoke with "Computer and Video Games" about the Need For Speed: Shift series, and his confidence that it will defeat the Gran Turismo series in driving authenticity.

Our idea is that if we can offer the most authentic driving experience and portray what it feels like being inside a race car, then I think that's where we can excel and where we absolutely will beat them [Gran Turismo]. That I know for sure.

EA is throwing down the gauntlet. Between the NFS Shift series and the Forza series on the Xbox 360, if Polyphony Digital steps up to the plate, we could certainly be seeing some absolutely amazing console-based driving/racing simulators in the coming years.
