Free DLC too!
While Japanese and European gamers are already enjoying Ridge Racer on their Vita systems, North American gamers have been patiently waiting for the game to make its appearance. Well the wait is almost over. Namco Bandai has just announced that Ridge Racer will now be released on 13th March in North America and the company is even...
Earlier in the year, we distinctly remember writing something along the lines of: "Man, it's going to be weird seeing a PlayStation platform launch without a Ridge Racer game
" That was in about April, before Ridge Racer Vita had been announced. Pay careful attention to the dates here, because it's important. Then at E3 in May, Ridge Racer Vita suddenly appeared as a launch title — albeit in..
Following the revelation of Ridge Racer Vita's limited on-cartridge content, publisher Namco Bandai has confirmed that it intends to bolster the package's volume with a variety of DLC set to launch this coming winter
According to Famitsu, the deluge of DLC will begin on December 22nd with a free music pack. The content will allow you to race to Ridge Racer's classic tunes, with more music due over..
Even Sony suit Kaz Hirai must be shaking his head in disappointment right now
At a Japanese press event overnight, Namco Bandai released some more specific details about Ridge Racer Vita. And the news isn't particularly good. The company admitted that, while it's very pleased with the racer's visuals, the game features just five cars and three tracks[/em] out of the box. The tracks themselves are..
Namco Bandai couldn't resist keeping tradition, announcing a PlayStation Vita version of Ridge Racer would be ready in time for the system's launch at this year's E3
But despite the game's imminent release date (in Japan anyway) Namco Bandai hasn't really shared much official footage of the game. It's rectified that today with an official promo trailer. You'll see vehicles drifting around corners..
We wouldn't be surprised if Sony executive -- and life-long Ridge Racer fan -- Kaz Hirai didn't force Namco to release an entry in its arcade racing series for PlayStation Vita
The build-up to the game has certainly been unusual. Prior to E3 the game didn't even exist, and it seemed likely that series was about to miss out on its first PlayStation platform launch. Then a tech demonstration suddenly..
We remember purchasing our first PlayStation 2 many years ago
For some reason we did so without a memory card. We picked up a Sony branded stick the very next day. In this new age of hard-drives and on-board memory, those memory card worries have become something of a side concern. You get plenty of storage space on a new PS3 to save your games, download some videos and much more. It's not a..
Namco Bandai's pledged support behind Sony's February 22nd Western release for PlayStation Vita
The publisher's planning a trio of games in Europe and North America, including: Ridge Racer, Shinobido 2: Revenge Of Zen and the brilliantly named Touch My Katamari. As with all PlayStation Vita games, the titles will be available digitally or at retail. So thankfully you'll never have to go into a..
Up until today only one publisher had announced the price of their PlayStation Vita software; Square Enix attached a price to Army Corps Of Hell late last month
But the latest issue of Famitsu magazine has published the prices for a variety of PlayStation Vita's most-wanted, including Uncharted: Golden Abyss and Ridge Racer. Nathan Drake's latest adventure will run you ¥5,980 ($78) at retail, with..
Namco Bandai's released the first screenshot of Ridge Racer on PlayStation Vita
The game will be released in time for the system's launch, maintaining an age-old PlayStation tradition. The game promises a new visual style in addition to online multiplayer. The screenshot looks a bit rough, but we're looking forward to seeing the game in motion. [Thanks Andriasang]
A whopping 26 titles will make up PlayStation Vita's launch line-up when it releases December 17th in Japan
That's a lot of content. Titles include: Ridge Racer, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Hot Shots Golf Next and (obviously) lots, lots more. Sony's announced that a number of the launch titles will be download only. That includes: Little Deviants, Minnato Issho, 3gokushi touchbattle, Project..
