ANOTHER entry in the popular simulation series, Euro Truck Simulator 2 arrives with a huge amount of content that will keep dedicated fans occupied for months. Players can prove their skills by manoeuvring the huge trucks and taking on a variety of delivery contracts. Each contract will take drivers across a huge number of European cities.
“The first version of Euro Trucksold in excess of 300,000 copies in Europe,” said Contact Sales managing director Robert Stallibrass. “We anticipate that Euro Truck Simulator 2 will rapidly exceed this number. “Everyone in the trade has got
behind Euro Truck 2, and with pre- orders and the anticipated sell through, we expect this to certainly be a Top Ten game, and may well achieve a Top Five position.”
The game offers eight highly detailed truck models that can be customised from bumper to exhaust.

“The developer of the Euro Truck series has done an outstanding job of creating awareness in the trucking community,” added Stallibrass. “Their blog and Facebook sites have been a hive of activity. “To build on the consumer awareness we’ve successfully run a series of YouTube videos showing off the product and at a retail level we have supported it with posters and trailer disks as consumer giveaways.” “Publishers often talk about realism, but the realism of Euro Truck 2is just simply unrivalled.”

THE WII U’S GamePad is an impressive bit of kit. The new console’s controller comes with a large touch pad screen, speakers and a camera. This means it’s most likely going to be expensive and that means consumers need to take extra precautions when it comes to protecting the new device. Hence why PDP is releasing a whole selection of GamePad protecting goodies for any excited Wii U consumers. First is the GamePad Faceplate, which protects the back of the GamePad with a decorative hard shell. The faceplate molds to the controller and uses soft EVA material that creates a double cushion for additional protection.
It comes in three designs: one sky blue plate with Mario jumping for coins, another stylish pattern for retro fans and a black patterned case with Mario punching a brick. The touch screen also gets additional protection with the Write and Protect pack. Included in the pack is a microfiber cloth for cleaning the screen and stick-on screen protectors to stop scratches and ensure constant protection. It also includes two stylus pens for those who wish to draw with the GamePad.
The Wii U Rainbow Stylus Pack contains eight colourful styluses to use on the GamePad’s touch screen. Finally, a selection of Silicone Skins can wrap around the whole controller to offer protection and extra grip during gameplay. The silicone slip comes in pink, blue, black and white.
