Ridge Racer Slipstream on iOS 'not like frustrating Vita instalment'

Ridge Racer Slipstream has been compared to console entries and can be fully played without spending in-app purchases, according to Namco Bandai.

Director of global strategy for mobile Alex Adjaj said he "understood the frustrations" of recent portable instalments where you bought an expensive base product and are asked to pay for more cars and tracks.

"If you look at all the Ridge Racer games that have been brought to portable consoles, in particular in the past few years PS Vita and PSP, and you look at the Metacritic score, you see that people complain a lot about the value they got when they spent £40 for the game," Adjaj told Digital Spy.

"They get three cars and four tracks and everything else had to be purchased in the PS Vita store, a quid for every car or something like that. That was ridiculous, right?

"I'm an old fan of Ridge Racer. I bought my first Ridge Racer game in 1995 on the PlayStation, so I can understand the frustrations the fans have." (Android, iPad, iPhone, Ridge Racer Slipstream)

If you know it's such a ripoff then why not lower the price of the Vita game or make the DLC free? You're admitting it's a problem yet you're not even attempting to fix it.

Sounds like it's just a cop-out to excuse the fact that they are releasing this mobile phone version instead of attempting to right the wrongs on Vita first.

Thankfully the PS4 is getting Driveclub, which will be everything we need in a true next-gen racing title.

Tipping, believe it or not, is not just a city in China. However, most people these days pay with either a credit or debit card while buying essentially anything, so plastic is used for tips. There are a number of reasons why one should tip servers with cash at every possible instance. Article source: Payday loan
