Ridge Racer Retail vs PSN

5 Replies 345 Views Created 09-05-2012

do you get all tracks & cars if you buy the PSN version ? i know you get a code for the Gold Pass in the retail version but not so sure about the PSN version which cost about the same if not slightly more.

Re: Ridge Racer Retail vs PSN

The gold pass was a limted time offer in early releases of the retail version, so I'm not sure any more if you can buy a retail version and still find a gold pass code in it

 

The gold pass is linked to your PSN account so you can sell a retail version of Ridge Racer, buy the download version and the pass is still valid

 

Without the gold pass the retail and download versions only have the basic 3 tracks and cars. 

 

I'm fairly sure the download version doesn't include the gold pass. I don't know that for sure because when I switched from physical to downlaod version I already had a gold pass linked to my PSN account

I bought ridge racer from the store and got the gold pass free so i think it's with it but i got it at launch so not sure if you still get it with the game.

Apparently the PSN version only supplied the pass until the end of March.

 

Personally I regret buying it.  There is no motivation to play the game without a career mode, it sucks.

Re: Ridge Racer Retail vs PSN

AS a long time Ridge Racer fan, even with 3 tracks, I'd be happy with the game supposing it plays well enough. Sadly, this is one of the few games that doesn't have a demo (because doing so would already be giving 33% of the game - HA!).

I'm living on this blind hope that Namco will release a Ridge Racer 2 on the Vita sometime in the future, much like RR2 on the PSP - pretty much the same game but with all the downloadable tracks, cars, and music already installed there, with a few extra features also.
