Tune in to Gotham TV

More Gotham 3 details.

Bizarre Creations has revealed more details of Gotham TV, a new feature designed to enhance online play for Project Gotham Racing 3 on Xbox 360.

Gotham TV is designed to support the Xbox Live community, keeping you informed of news, upcoming events and how your competitors are shaping up.

There are six different channels to choose from. The Friends Channel (no, not another name for E4) lets you watch your mates' races as they happen, either from the stands or within one of the cars on the track - you can even take the passenger seat in your chum's vehicle, if you like.

The Gotham Heroes Channel will broadcast races featuring the game's top players, all in real-time. To become a Gotham Hero you'll need to earn a shedload of kudos points - and if you make it, you'll get a notification before the race so you can invite your friends to watch.

Today's Highlights, as the name suggests, shows the best bits from the day's races, and the Hall of Fame lets you view the archives - you can search by city, driver, event and even route if you want to find out the best way to complete a circuit.

Then there's the Gotham Heroes Archive, which will feature classic moments from old PGR3 races, and finally View Replays - save your performances online and watch them back whenever you like.

On top of all that, Gotham TV will offer a scrolling news ticker at the bottom of the screen to keep you up to date with general news, details of what your friends are up to and stuff that might be of personal interest.

If another driver beats your top score, for example, the ticker will notify you - and you can head on over to the archives to watch the race in question. The ticker won't appear while you're actually racing, so no worries about being distracted when you're trying to keep your eyes on the road.

Gotham TV will launch alongside PGR 3 and the Xbox 360 in November. You can read more about the game here.
