O-Games announced the release of its Playstation Network arcade and simulation racing title, Superstars V8 Racing today, meaning that it has officially beaten Gran Turismo 5 to release (seriously, at this point I don’t think anybody knows the reason why that game keeps getting delayed). Available for $19.99 USD, Superstars V8 Racing was developed by Milestone s.r.l, the development team behind the WRC and SBX racing games and features officially licensed cars from some of the top manufacturers, European Superstar Championship tracks, online multiplayer for up to 12 players and more.

My question about whether a $20 Playstation Network game will be able to stand up to major franchises like Gran Turismo and Need for Speed still stands, but we’re hoping that once Jeff takes a look at the game, we’ll have a more definitive answer. In the mean time, O-Games’ general manager, Greg Lanz, has taken the time to make a few jokes at Sony’s expense saying, “Who really knows when Gran Turismo 5 will launch? We sure don’t… In the race to provide driving fans a fast and intense wheel-gripping experience around the track, it looks like our game has taken the checkered flag!” Sony, your response?
