First we hear about friends list for MotorStorm from IGN, and now we hear about a time trial mode from ThreeSpeach. Here's what they had to say:
Any PS3 owner playing MotorStorm online will receive Time Trial Mode automatically – you won't even need to download this one from the PLAYSTATION Store. Take any vehicle out on the track of your choice and go hell for leather to lay down the quickest lap time. You can race against ghost vehicles of your previous efforts, other players' times and the best attempts from the MotorStorm development team – and then upload your best times to the global online rankings. In addition, more tracks, vehicles and game modes will be available later in the month, and thereafter on a regular basis.
Coming soon to a PS3 near you!
