Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, the number of stories is slowing down. Time and developers move on, but I'll always be posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age. Please consider clicking an ad to help my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

Ridge Racer Vita is cheap thanks to DLC

Ridge Racer will come at a bargain price for the Vita's launch, as the title only comes with three tracks (which can be run in reverse) and five cars. The rest of the content will be available as downloads (and I'm guessing most of it won't be free).

That's perhaps understandable in part, as it helps the publisher get around the second-hand games plague but will still likely annoy some gamers. It also explains why the game needs a memory card to play, although it does look gorgeous as a new batch of screens show.

Another slight downer is that Namco has confirmed the game runs at 30fps, not 60 - but that's hardly going to make a real difference, with the gorgeous AMOLED display showing off these great night scenes.
