Dear kart racing fans in System Wars board.
I would like to know your opinion why do you think Xbox and Playstation need kart racers for their library of racing games for?
As I know in each generation of Xbox and Playstation consoles, since back in the 90s; there were quite a lot of PS1 owners asking for a kart racer equivalent to Nintendo 64's Mario Kart 64 and Diddy Kong Racing so all they get is Crash Team Racing.
- During 2008-2010 there were quite a lot of Xbox 360/Playstation 3 owners that were begging kart racers to come into their consoles so all they get is Joy Ride (360) and Modnation Racers (PS3) respectively as an answer to Nintendo's Mario Kart Wii.
- Guess what? Joy Ride and Modnation Racers are both not very popular and inferior to Mario Kart Wii.
- At that time, most car enthusiasts who own 360 or PS3, they much more prefer to play Forza Motorsport 3 and Gran Turismo 5 over any kart racers.
- Also, they prefer to play street racing games like Project Gotham Racing, Test Drive, Need For Speed, Burnout and Midnight Club.
- In 2014-2015, most Xbox One/PS4 owners owned a Wii who skipped PS3 or 360, they were desperately begging kart racers to come into their Xbox One/PS4 so why don't they buy a Wii U at first place to play Mario Kart 8?
- The first kart racer for XB1/PS4 was Beach Buggy Racing which looks bland IMO and it wasn't popular that compared to Forza Motorsport 6 and Driveclub.
- In 2019, finally, when Xbox One and PS4 get 2 karts on what the owners wanted following are Team Sonic Racing and Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled as they now they can finally stop complaining.
- All I know majority of racing fans would buy Xbox or Playstation consoles to play sim racing and street racing games, not cheesy kart racers!
While others prefer kart racers so they choose to buy Nintendo consoles to play Mario Kart and various other kart racers.
P.S If I see a kart racer being announced for Xbox Scarlett/PS5, no matter if it's 1st or 3rd party then I'm so going to cringe! I'd rather have sim racing and street racing games on Xbox Scarlett/PS5/PC!
