Video game publisher Koei, best known for its long-standing Dynasty Warriors franchise, enters the driving arena with Fatal Inertia, a 23rd century racing game that mixes weapons, slick looking rides and unique physics. Originally slated for the PlayStation 3 but now also coming to the Xbox 360. Fatal Inertia seems to provide gamers with a different type of high-speed experience, one that may compete with the likes of the Ridge Racer and Burnout franchises, providing its developers inject it with a healthy dose of speed.
