Initial D Arcade Game Uses Real Cars

Apparently an anime show called Initial D is really big in Japan and seems to be centered on car racing of some sort. Recently a video game based on the show was put into the SEGA Joypolis in Odiaiba Japan.

The cool part about the video game is that it uses real cars on motion simulators with 90” screens in front of the windshield for the display. The real cars used in the game are a Subaru Impreza WRX, Toyota GT-Apex, and a Mazda RX-7.

This isn’t a cheap arcade game, but costs the equivalent of $5 for a few laps around one track. This is pretty cool, but I have to say I have never understood the appeal of the Toyota GT-APEX; it looks like a cheesy Corolla to me. Via Kotaku
