If you love racing simulators and you ever happen to be passing through Lyons, France (or if you live nearby) then a new business that recently opened it’s doors there will certainly hold appear for you. Called I-WAY, the pace has be under construction for the past four years and offers more than racing simulators although the simulators are the primary attraction for spending your hard earned cash there. With 18 6-axis simulators built around full-sized “Formula 1, rally/touring and endurance race cars” you will be spending quite a bit a of cash for the experience, with a single race starting at a mere €60 (or about $73.25USD; I am being facetious when I say “mere” here). You can also get a racing package with ten races for ‘only’ €630, so save up before you head in. At the very least with the quality of simulators that they appear to have, you know that you are going to get a high quality experience out the it.

(Thanks to Aaron Auzins for the tip)

After a little while of silence on the US front for new releases, we have word via BemaniStyle.com that Konami is testing out a new, redemption version of their Pop N’ Music series in the US. Eddie Lecheka, editor of BemaniStyle had a chance to check the game out where he gives a complete rundown of the features in place, along with some video. I will just link to one video and you can check the rest out on the link below, but what are your thoughts of bemani gaming making a comeback in the US via the redemption route? I know that is certainly not something that hardcore players will look forward to but it certainly is a smart way to get younger and more casual audiences hooked on the type of game that it is.
