The makers of the Farming Simulator games clearly knew they're used as something of a punchline. A new trailer for the upcoming Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions of FS 2013 plays on the gag videos, with hip beats and funky editing, but at the same time it also looks pretty cool. Yes, yes maybe I do want to coordinate harvesting corn with my friends! It's the American dream.
See, the new trailer shows off the consoles' new American farm setting, with such authentic small-town features as a rail car diner named Uncle Pete's Excellent Diner and a drive-in billing movies including The Rise of the Harvester IV and Running Out of Taters. Let's ignore that it's a day late for Independence Day; we're European: we lack that Protestant work ethic.
Farming Simulator sprouts on 360 and PS3 in the first week of September. It's coming to Vita too.
