We love a good racing video game, but we never imagined that one day we would be gaming from behind the wheel of real cars. BMW has just become the latest car maker to announce a collaboration with a video game platform maker to bring "a unique kind of in-car gaming to the road for the first time"

It's teamed up with AirConsole to put gaming in the new BMW 5 Series. And it designed a unique BMW i5 with gaming-inspired livery to mark the occasion in a homage to 8-bit computer games (see our pick of the best laptop for gaming for more traditional places to game).
