They are really charging for this?
At least add trophy support while they are at it, seems pointless to me to add 3D for such an old game and not add trophies

lokiroo4202684d ago

I agree, why go through the trouble and not add trophies. Well I guess they couldnt charge for trophies, which is most likely why.

Agree TROPHY SUPPORT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry, I've been yelling a lot today.

... o_O
I thought this was going to have a new installment.. if they are updating the old one.. it seems pointless
I doubt many people even play RR7 anymore

Why would anyone play this game again,ill be playing gt5 thanks, no need to get this horrible game back out of the wardrobe. lol

spunnups2684d ago

I agree, adding 3D is a complete waste of resources

Awesome. This game was vastly under-rated. For a launch (or was it simply shortly after launch? can't remember) title, this game was gorgeous and a lot of fun. Still is gorgeous, actually.

lzim2684d ago

underrated how? people didn't have money for the system, 6 on 360 was adequate, and frankly the game is just ridge racer. Awesome game, don't get me wrong, it was an instant buy (6 on 360), but it wasn't worth the money then or now.

I was waiting for 8 for both systems rather than a quick cash grab on PS3 simply to promote 3D. where does it leave a multiplatform 8 if they are only now deciding to revive 7?

Ju2684d ago

Hm, well, only 6 on the 360 was buggy as hell with frame rate issues and what not, while the PS3 version is one of the few games which ran/runs flawlessly in full (!) 1080p @ 60fps (that is 1920x1080, nothing less).

ChronoJoe2684d ago (Edited 2684d ago )

Actually the car models look kinda silly, and environments are no better than seen in Gran Turismo 4.

I do think it's great fun though. Shame it wasn't presented as well as RR:T4, that game was sick.

It had a better intro too

Shazz2684d ago

throw in trophies while your at it and do a relaunch at platinum range and loads will buy im sure

ChronoJoe2684d ago

I have this, ain't it like 2 years old?

I don't play it because the campaign mode is poorly structured, as an arcade game it's pretty fun for some pick-up and play, but I don't get the feeling that theirs any incentive to keep on racing after about an hour.
