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, you would of course need to purchase or own a PS4 along with any modern TV capable of running HDMI. You then need to decide whether you are likely to play single player, online or split-screen multiplayer, if you intend to play split-screen then remember to invest in a second controller!
The positives with console gaming is that you do not need to worry about upgrading for new games; if it is released for your console then you can guarantee it will run smoothly.
We feel that racing games are best on a steering wheel and pedal setup, which can be purchased very 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 often good enough for basic racing.
Thankfully, after testing, we have managed to get away without any scraped knuckles or oil stains to bring you our list of the 5 Best PS4 Driving Games of 2017.

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.”
