It was the second win of the season for Walker who also picked up a win at Auto Club Speedway back in May.

“This is awesome, I can’t believe it,” said the Roush Fenway Gaming driver. “Well I didn’t want to get into any trouble (early in the race) but I figured what the heck with two laps to go (in the race) to go for it and we did.”

Walker led the race when they took the white flag before Brooks took the top spot away. The two raced side by side and swapping the lead before Walker made his daring move in the final turn on the road course.

JR Motorsports driver Tyler Dohar (JRM Dohar88) rebounded from an early accident in the race to finish third with Daniel Buttafuoco (The Bolt18) coming home fourth for Gibbs Gaming. 

Leavine Family Racing’s Nick Vroman (HD Motorsports95) completed the top five.

PS4

In the first race of the night Hunter Mullins (FastFed32) scored his second Playstation 4 win of the season holding off RCR Esports driver Joey Stone (Sloppy_Joe_YT) on the final lap to make his second trip to Victory Lane this season. 

Mullins also scored his first win at Auto Club Speedway in the second eNASCAR Heat Pro League event of the season.

“That was intense and some hard racing for the win,” Mullins said. “I was just being patient for him to make a mistake and he was driving hard in the corners and he was pushing up the track. We were both just racing hard for the win.”

Wood Brothers Gaming driver Slade Gravitt (slade84) finished third with Hendrick Motorsports Gaming Club driver Nick Jobes (NJobes25) fourth and Stewart Haas Gaming’s SHG_HotRod_14p rounding out the top five. 

Team Penske Esports drivers Brian Tedeschi (ShellVPower22) and Corey Rothgeb (Pennzoil2) each finished eighth in their respective races to help Team Penske hold on to the overall points lead 291-287. 

With the help of their second race win of the season Roush Fenway Gaming shaved nine points off the lead to sit just four points back.

Sony Acquires ‘Spider-Man’ Developer Insomniac Games

Published

on

By

Sony is gobbling up Insomniac Games, the studio behind the wildly successful Marvel’s Spider-Man and the long-running Ratchet & Clank franchise. When the deal is done, the studio’s 25+ year run as an independent developer will draw to a close.

Of course, nobody would blame you for thinking that Insomniac was already owned by Sony, given their long history of making Sony exclusives. In fact, Insomniac has made a number of titles for other platforms over the years.

This news means no more Microsoft exclusives like the wacky Sunset Overdrive and probably no more Oculus Rift games—Insomniac will likely focus on PS VR content if it continues to develop virtual reality titles, something Sony will no doubt want to capitalize on.

Sony also announced that Marvel’s Spider-Man was the best-selling Spidey game of all time, selling 13.2 million copies worldwide by the end of July, 2019. That’s impressive especially given the fact that it was a PS4 exclusive (though clearly far too many didn’t buy the game and need to—it’s well worth your time and money).

Insomniac Games will be the 14th in-house developer for Sony Interactive Entertainment’s Worldwide Studios (SIE WWS). The details of the acquisition, including the amount Sony paid to buy the studio, remain confidential. Current management is expected to remain in charge post-acquisition, working in conjunction with SIE WWS San Mateo.

The really good news here—though it’s entirely unsurprising—is that a Spider-Man sequel is even more likely now, almost certainly for the PS5 though possibly for both PS4 and PS5.
