In another of today's articles, regular columnist Jim Rossignol takes a look at the latest goings-on in esoteric game topics for 'The Esoteric Beat' column, including looks at a very long essay studying the artistic merits of interactive entertainment.
In this extract, Rossignol discusses the recently-announced Nissan URGE, an automobile with an optional Xbox 360 attachment:
"As well as being fairly sporty, the URGE is kitted out with the latest generation of onboard entertainments. "Not surprisingly, most of the young, primarily male, respondents to our survey said that they want a small, fun-to-drive sports car that can incorporate the technology products that they use on a daily basis, such as cell phones, mp3 players and game consoles," said Bruce Campbell, vice president, design, Nissan Design America, Inc.
That game console is, of course, the one which hosts Project Gotham 3. Presumably you'll need some kind of autopilot to get enough gaming time on the long commute to work."
