Tour de France Video Game To Be Released On Friday

For those of you who like pretty flashing pictures that you control, the official 2011 Tour de France video game will be released this Friday, one day before the tour itself starts. It's from the same folks who make the critically acclaimed Pro Cycling Manager series, and you will be able to purchase the game for both Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.

The awesome thing about these officially licensed games for various massive sporting events is the great detail that they can include as a result. It looks like this game will be no exception, as it's going to include all 21 stages of the Tour de France, playable in the same format as the real Tour de France.

To anyone who picks up this game and plays out the entire Tour in real life speed, going through five hour stages: You are a shiny golden god of the world of sports video games.
