Ubisoft has announced even more details about its upcoming relaunch of its gritty, open-world franchise, now titled Driver: San Francisco. We make it out to San Francisco for a few days every year for GDC, but we've never witnessed a single act of gritty crime, so we're not sold on how eventful the...

We knew that there would be a new Driver to see at E3, and the site's countdown lines up with 5 p.m. PDT next Monday, June 14,...

Considering Ubisoft hasn't formally announced another entry in the Driver series, we found it a tad on the odd side when we received the publisher's official E3 press release (that's a new one for us too) declaring the game to be playable at this year's LA convention. "Video games exhibited at the ...

One of the discussions that arise anytime we bring up a new graphics card from ATI or NVIDIA is about which company has the better drivers. Well, this should help sway the argument a little bit. It would seem StarCraft II Beta players were among the first to notice low frame rates while using the l...

Ubisoft's current focus to iterate its "major franchises" seems to expose its key brands to franchise fatigue and, with it, dwindling sales -- just look what happened to sales of Guitar Hero and Tony Hawk when Activision implemented a similar strategy. However, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot remains un...

Believe it or not, a device-controlled car isn't exactly fresh. In fact, we've actually seen a PSP control a Civic before Barack Obama was even a glimmer in the media's eye. That said, we're always willing to give credit where it's due, and the iDriver app just might be the most impressive use of ...

The NEC USB 3.0 controller is due to hit the streets this month, and already Sarah Sharp (the, um, "Geekess") has been able to crank out a Linux driver for the device. Sharp states that she is "working with Keve Gabbert (the OSV person in my group at Intel) to make sure that Linux distributions like...

It's an open-world third-person urban crime game with an anime edge -- you play as a street racer who's been cuffed, and has to choose between working for the police or returning to your crim...

"DRIVER, 25, a test driver for Audi Germany in his mid-twenties -- a little Beckham, a little McQueen -- with munchy hair and intense blue eyes that show a focus that's laser-like." These precious words constitute the first sentence of the Roger Avary-crafted screenplay for the (currently on-hold)...

Ubisoft has applied for a trademark on Driver: The Recruit, as noticed by the ever-vigilant paperwork scavenger over at Superannuation. Speculation would dictate that this is the name of the fifth Driver game, which we learned was in production last summer. With E3 2009 a mere month away, it would...

Various posters at the MSI Wind forums say they were sent the driver from Realtek employees after contacting the company, which invar...

So this week's Euro PSN Store update was a little bit lackluster, but at least we already have something to look forward to next week. Ubisoft has announced on its website that the original PS1 game, Driver, is on its way to the EU PlayStation Store next week. The game will be available for €4...

You may not be old enough to remember it, but a decade ago when it was first released, Driver felt like a revelation. A game where cars were used for more than racing each other and roadblasting? Unheard of! But there it was, all new and fresh and full of promise, and you'll get to experience the fe...
