Ok, I definitely need to get a PSP! Too many good titles to pass up (Wipeout and Daxter are first on the list).

Ridge Racer 3D site drifts into your browser to show pacey racing action, onto-the-screen effects

Lots of the links are yet to be filled, hence the slightly bare-bones look at the moment, but there are already a handful of race montages, the Japanese teaser and a bundle of screenshots for you to scrutinise/glance casually at.

Ridge Racers 2 Review

Ridge Racers 2 features courses from Ridge Racer, Ridge Racer Revolution, Rave Racer, Rage Racer, Ridge Racer Type 4, and Ridge Racer V, in addition to original and arranged BGM tracks from all of these games.

Ridge Racers 2 doesn't feel like a sequel, but rather, an upgrade to the original title, only offering a small number of new features and some more courses.
