        All reports are saying NGP isn’t being supported.

        If so easy (as every says) to port from PS3 to PSP2 then why not. It will only be small out lay to get some extra cash.

    Oddly, I was only thinking yesterday that it’s about time we had a new Ridge Racer. Next year though??? Also- Unbounded? City streets? Traffic? No open world rubbish please Namco. We’ll have insane looking cars racing at 200mph, sideways, along stunning closed courses.

      I second this thought, this should be killed with fire. Some how doubt this’ll be 1080p60

      I’ll stick with Ridge Racer 7 thank you very much.

        I third this thought. It looks like they’ve gone all Need For Speed Underground with it.

    The original Ridge Racer game was one of the reasons I changed allegiance from Nintendo to Sony.
    I hope Bugbear do a good job.

    What a nutty trailer, it looks from that brief teaser to potentially have somewhat more to it than just drifting like the Ridge Racers of old.

    That trailer isn’t Ridge Racer, it’s a teaser for one of the bad Need for Speed games.

      I concur. What the on earth was that? Sure as hell isn’t Ridge Racer.

      As stated above, I agree with the above sentiments.

    Never been a ridge racer fan, although it looks great fun I’ve always thought it tries too hard to be an over the top arcade racer….may buy it when it’s in bargain basement for a tenner.
