What do I need to get started?
Console gaming is the most convenient plug-and-play solution to hitting the track and delivering you straight into the action.
Firstly, (as you may expect) you need to purchase or own a PS4 and any modern TV capable of running HDMI. If you’re looking to go down the VR route, you’ll also need to invest in the Playstation-specific PSVR headset.
You then must decide whether you will likely play single-player, online, or split-screen multiplayer. If you intend to play split-screen, invest in a second controller before you start.
The positive with console gaming is that you won’t need to worry about upgrading your system for new games. You can guarantee it will run smoothly if it is released for your console.
However, if it’s not released for your console, you may need to consider upgrading to the latest generation.
We feel that driving games are best on a steering wheel and pedal setup, which can be purchased reasonably at the lower end of the market, such as the Logitech G29, right through to ultra-realistic, yet expensive, brands such as Fanatec.
A recommended cheaper alternative is to use the joypad that came with your console, as these are often good enough for basic racing.
Thankfully, after testing, we have gotten away without scraped knuckles or oil stains to bring you our list of the 5 Best PS4 Driving Games of 2023.
5 – Trackmania Turbo
If it’s fun and entertainment you’re looking for, then Trackmania Turbo is the perfect thrill ride for gamers who like some insanity added to the mix in their racing games.
After being a PC-only game for quite some time, console users are now welcome to join in the fun with this latest edition.
For those new to the series, it’s a fantastic alternative to serious sim racing, which will undoubtedly provide you and your friends with hours of entertainment.
Trackmania Turbo review
Gamespot’s Jason D’Aprile went thrillseeking to deliver his verdict:
“Trackmania Turbo, has hit the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and the result is as fun as fans of the series could have hoped. The game’s unique focus on time trial racing gives it a distinctly refreshing feel from the Forzas and Need for Speeds of the world.”
“The game constantly lets you know where you stand and frequently restarting the race entirely after a mishap is a common, and necessary, tactic to stay on top. The ghostly nature of multiplayer manages to alleviate any frustration from vehicle collisions while still maintaining a constant sense of competition. This system also allows for an absurd number of players to be involved in a single online tournament–even on launch day, there were easily 70+ cars in each race.”
